Birthday for 3 women ... the good is just delicious and the accommodations made for my gluten and dairy sensitivities were highly respected

The food is incredible and very tasty, probably some of the best food the city has to offer and great for vegetarians. However, the service was NOT good. Our server took 20 minutes to take our drink order and when we went to order food she walked away. Probably because she couldn’t hear us as the place is extremely loud and we were a party of 4 practically yelling so we could hear our conversations. Made the expenrience not as enjoyable as I would have hoped. Our server also spoke very quiet which made it difficult to hear what she was saying. I would still recommend the place to friends and family however I would warn them ahead of time of how loud the place is.

Went to try Chef Berns new menu and was super happy with the experience. Risotto was perfectly cooked and the new version of the hanger steak with the pickled onions and avocado crema was amazing.

A group of friends and I like to go out once a month and try new places each time. This time we tried Donna Mac, and we are all glad we did! The next day EVERYONE was still raving about how good the food was, and that we might need to make this a repeat place to go!

The food was tapas style and everything we ordered was incredible. Lots of options for Vegetarian and Vegan.

Top 3 dishes: Tempura Green Beans, Gem Lettuce and Beets!

Service was fabulous, we unfortunately did not catch our servers name, but if the name in the receipt is right Seth was a rockstar!!

Ambiance was perfect for chatting and catching up with friends!

1000% will eat here again, probably sooner rather than later.

My three sisters and I had a lovely time. It was my sister's birthday and when I made the reservation I requested a gluten free sugar free dessert. They produced a beautiful gluten free dessert which I thought was above and beyond, it also had a birthday candle for my sister to blow out! I was really impressed. Although they couldn't meet our request for sugar free I still thought they did a really great job and my sister was so happy at their efforts. The food was amazing and the service was even better!!
I highly recommend this restaurant!

Always unreal, I think this may be the most underrated restaurant in the city. The new menu was great, my girlfriend and I have a mainly vegetarian diet and there were so many great veggie dishes to chose from it was hard to decide. We had the little gem lettuce, the shredded Brussels sprouts, Risotto, and sourdough with the cashew cheese spread. They’ve also got a great wine list, we shared a bottle of the Meinklang orange wine; it was fantastic

Went with two friends and we all were very happy with our dinner. The wine list was great and the food was awesome. They have a great selection of food and a ton of veggie options. We aren't vegetarians but went with a mostly veggie dinner and it was great. Our favourites were the cabbage, fried cauliflower and squid. But everything was delicious!

It was the first time I had been to Donna Mac,

I was excited to try since I love the team @ Vine Arts so much!

Our server was lovely. She made great recommendations to us.

Our mock tails were great, I’m expecting and so anything that tastes like it could have actual booze in it but doesn’t makes me so happy!

Our dessert was our favourite: Avocado Pudding - do it.

The balance of the dishes were great, with the exception of the Lamb Ribs. The dishes consistency made us think that it could have been made in a crock pot.

The service piece that disappointed us is that there was a 30 -40 minute gap between the sourdough, falafel, carrot dishes and the lamb + broccoli. No one came to check on us during that time and we couldn’t find our server to ask her why the delay. I’m assuming she went on break and there was some sort of drop in communication.

The Tuna Crudo & the Hanger steak were our favourites! We also had the porcini and gouda crullers, which were like a cheesy churro with a slightly sweet exterior. Nice ambiance, great food, and fantastic service. Overall, a great dining experience!

My husband and I went here for brunch at a recommendation from a great friend. To be honest, this is not our sort of place we would normally go. The food, service and ambiance at Donna Mac was great. Our server was amazing and he went above and beyond while serving us, even bringing out extra spicy mayo as he could see how much we loved it! I would highly recommend this place for a wonderful brunch!
