They were very diligent with COVID rules.
Food was very good. A little skimpy on the side of fries/poutine.
Great patio! Heated and very spaced out for safe distancing. Food was delicious, as always.
Our waitress Jane, was so lovely! Best waitress ever!
Love going to Fresh but this was the first time that I have been there since COVID happened. I was very impressed with the restaurant and how well they were dealing with the social distancing and accommodating patrons. We were on the patio which is always my favourite spot there, and I was getting a little warm since the sun was out, and the waiter was very happy to move us to another table to make us more comfortable. They have signs on all tables that have been sanitized so that was good to see.
Always impressed with this location! Staff are lovely there!
I really enjoy the amazing food at fresh.
The newly spaced table layout was much nicer for our comfort compared to preCovid spacing.
Service was prompt
All around a great experience.
The great service at this place is awesome. I usually eat here once a week and consistently encounter friendly awesome staff. Food is good - little noisy on the patio, but grateful there even is a patio in these COVID times.
A woman, that can only be described as a ‘food runner’ gave me pure attitude when I asked her to clear my napkin. She looked me up and down and said ‘uh, nooo.’ Cora our server was good. Answered our questions and recommended some menu items. Are gruner wine was tasteless, our choice.
I’ve been to fresh many times. Won’t be back at Crawford.
Excellent options and vegan food. Very lovely. Great ambiance and social distancing!
Thank you so much Kluz! Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
service is excellent - COVID protocols are excellent.
Thank you Anim! We're so glad to hear that you felt safe in our space. Hope to see you again soon.
Delicious as always!! Great covered patio and food! Wish they still had vegan donuts - miss those but otherwise 5 star
Thank you Belinda!
Food was great as usual !
Thanks! Hope to see you again soon.
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.

Quick service, and the food was really good. My 9 year old niece niece who's the pickiest in the world loved the rainbow smoothie.
Thanks Elizabeth! Isn't that smoothie delicious?! Hope to see you both again soon.
Patio is really cute! Food was delicious - especially the dumplings dish!
Thanks Maddy! Aren't the dumplings delicious?! Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
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
Hi Christine - when you have a moment please email us the details at email@example.com so we can remedy this with you.
Good quality service good food
Always happy to get food with you
Thank you Katiaa!
Had a great birthday dinner for a friend - everything was perfect and came in a timely fashion. Assistant Manager Shanna went beyond to make it a special evening. Thank you :)
Thank you so much Ally! I'm so glad to hear that Shanna helped to make your evening special. Hope to see you again soon!
kitchen messed up our orders but they were nice enough to discount it off the bill. overall a good experience
Hi Susie! I'm sorry to hear that your orders weren't correct, but happy to hear that our team could remedy it with you. Hope to see you again soon!
We had a much better experience than the one on the prior week. This time, the main dishes (Buddha Bowl and Powerhouse) had a much better taste and were clearly better prepared.
I'm glad to hear that! If anything isn't exactly perfect, please do let us know.
Love fresh. Always very yummy food and very respectful of social distancing!
Thank you Jackie!
Amazing!! The dragon fries were fresh and cheesy and the bowls were tasty . Thank you!
Thanks Irene! I'm so glad that you enjoyed. Have you had a chance to try our Buffalo Cauliflower yet? I think you'd love it!
Best ambiance and the fries are to die for! The terrasse is pefect on the adjacent street. The staff is makes you feel welcome and safe during those special times.
Thank you! Hope to see you again soon.
Yummy breakfast food. One of my favourite spots for vegan food in Toronto!
Thank you! Hope to see you again soon.
Great patio set up and the owner really adhere's to social distancing rules. Awesome place to go!
Thank you Jorielle! Hope to see you again soon.
Fresh has gotten way too expensive. 2 adult meals, 2 drinks and 2 apps for the kids at almost 150 is robbery
Always a great time - good food and cocktails. They space groups out very well for COVID
Thanks Marine! Hope to see you again soon.
Menu selection is amazing. We’ve loved everything we ever ordered!
Thanks Michelle! Hope to see you again soon.
Bread was stiff and hard to bite into.
Big flies flying everywhere. Seats were dirty and stained.
Hi Alice - I'm so sorry to hear about this. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can remedy this with you.
Always an awesome experience. So glad the patios open!
Thank you Tori! So are we!
Their patio is lovely. Everything is very spaced out and fees secure. The servers were super friendly and kind, along with being prompt.
Thank you for such a kind review! Hope to see you again soon.
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.
Thank you so much Kelsey! We're so appreciative of your kind words. Hope to see you again soon!
Yummy! Always love eating here. The patio is amazing.
Thanks Cindy! Hope to see you on our patio again soon!
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.
Hi - I'm so sorry to hear that. Please email us at feedback@freshresatraunts so we can remedy this with you. Our food should taste the same at all locations!
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. :)
Hi Clara, I'm sorry to hear about your most recent experience with us. If you're willing to give us a second chance, please email us at email@example.com so we can remedy this with you. And you're right - we're 100% vegan now (we used to be mainly vegan with the option to add dairy).
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 :)
Thank you so much for your kind words Ashley! They mean the world to us. We hope to see you again soon!
First time eating out since covid. Online reservation was simple, and ready on time. Large outdoor patio felt safe and allowed for distancing. It’s also covered so a great option if it’s raining!
We're so glad that you enjoyed dining with us Andrew! Hope to see you again soon.
Overall the experience was amazing, our service was great and the food was delicious as always!
Thank you Livia! Hope to see you again soon!
Portions were smaller than I've seen at other locations but the ambience is awesome and the staff are super helpful and friendly.
Hi Niki! I'm glad that you enjoyed yourself, but disappointed to hear that you thought the portions were smaller here. The portions are the same size at all locations, so if you ever notice this again please let us know. Hope to see you again soon!
