Some of the worst front desk service I have ever experienced. Arrived at the restaurant around 8:00 and asked for a table of two I was told to wait 10 min for a table to be available. I was told I would get a text when the table was free. I waited outside and could see three free tables. I went back inside after 20 minutes and asked why I never got a text I was told that no tables free yet three still sat empty. I made an online reservation for 9:00 because he would not sit me now unless I had a reservation. I then showed him my reservation and asked if I could be seated since now two tables where still free. He made me wait 30 min before he seated me at 9 while the tables say empathy they entire time. I seriously don’t understand this customer service. Then our food arrived cold after 40 min waiting for it to get to our table.

We were seated on the patio and my husband was cold. We requested to move more inside the patio out of the breeze. They would not do it because there were reservations....however, the same amount of seating was available. The server would only have had to wipe down where we sat. Would you want to be uncomfortably cold at a restaurant that you are paying good money to patronize? I think not. We are regular customers at this Fresh location. I’m disappointed that a very reasonable request couldn’t be granted. It wasn’t putting anyone in covid danger or taking away from anyone else’s experience. When we finished our food and left, the table near us with four seats was still empty...it was just ludicrous

I love Fresh! I have for years, since they first opened. They are consistent and detail oriented. Food is great even if you're not vegetarian or if you have other restrictions (I'm gluten free and they're super accommodating!) And all the locations are beautiful but unique to their neighborhoods in their aesthetics.

Nailing it!

We are regular customers of Fresh chain of restaurants. For the past couple of weeks that we had lunch at Fresh on Crawford, we noticed our main courses (Tiger bowl and Protein Bowl) were not as tasty as they used be. Must be something about the way the food is now being prepared in that location, cause we later had the same dishes at Fresh in Front and they were much tastier there.

The music was run-of-the-mill music that you can hear on your car radio or in store at a mall, etc.

Toilet didn’t flush - staff member inside restaurant gave the equivalent of a verbal shrug.

Food wasn’t as good as I remembered, but maybe that was just me. And last time I had a latte you mustn’t have been completely vegan :( (oh well, my own problem).

Servers were pleasant and efficient. :)

My partner and I decided to check out Fresh again, now that their patio was open. It had been awhile since the pandemic and everything closed down for a few months.

Upon arrival, it was a beautiful sunny day, and we made reservations through Open Table on the spot. We walked in and we were served within minutes. The hostess asked us questions pertaining to Covid-19 and we were seated right after outside. I don’t remember their seating being so comfortable. We scanned the barcode for the menu which I liked.

We were there for lunch, and wanted to share something. We decided on the 7 layer burrito with a salad on the side and the charcoal lemonade. At first we were going to try the nachos but Fresh’s wraps are huge and filling so we opted for the burrito.

Our host was super cool and very friendly! I wish I got his name to thank him for his service.

He brought us our meal and boy oh boy were we happy with it! It was delicious! Flavourful and the textures and different ingredients just meshed so well! I will definitely be ordering this again. Most likely just for me :)

I noticed a change in their charcoal lemonade but the taste was just as delicious.

I then ordered a gluten free chocolate chip cookie. Unfortunately they couldn’t warm it up, but it got devoured before we left. Usually we get their delicious carrot cake but I wasn’t wanting something so decadent that day.

Staff were friendly, helpful and doing a great job considering the times we living in right now!

Remember, if you can’t exercise patience with the restaurant staff, stay home and eat! They don’t need that kind of negativity around :)
