Fresh did a wonderful job implementing covid restrictions. I felt safe and warm!
Thank you so much! We're so happy to hear that.
Service was just ok. Could have been better. We asked if we can be seated near the sun since we were the first one there. It was explained to us that it was not possible as there needs to be two or more for the table “closer to the sun”...however they seated and accommodated a couple where we had asked. Service from there and on was meh, kind of set the mood for us.Food is good, no doubt, but I would rather take our money else where for better and more fair service.

Always the best for quick, delicious vegan in the city! Fresh never disappoints. Also, roomiest, warmest patio set up at the Queen St location! This will be a go-to right through the winter ❄️
Thank you Alex. So glad to hear you enjoyed both your meal and our patio. Isn't it great!
It was great to sit outside on a cool day. The heaters were terrific. My friend and I enjoyed our meal, the server was attentive and friendly.
Thank you Gilda! Your kind words mean so much to us. So glad you and your friend enjoyed.
We have been meaning to check out this restaurant for a few months and we are so happy we finally made it! Great environment, they were very attentive and had great GF options. Pro tip: warn your boyfriend it is a vegan restaurant a few times before you go, lol! We both enjoyed our meals and can't wait to go back!
Hello! Thank you so much for such a kind review. I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed your meal - I bet your boyfriend did too!
Glad that tables were properly distanced apart. Food tasty and healthy as usual.
Thank you so much!
Been a Fresh customer for almost a decade, love their menu options but have noticed serving sizes go down significantly over time, unfortunately.
Hi Nat - thank you so much for being such a long time fan, we truly appreciate that. Our serving sizes should have remained the same. Please email us at email@example.com if you notice this again so we can remedy it with you.
This is a go-to spot for casual dining with lots of vegan options to choose from. This location has done a great job working with the patio only restrictions.
Thank you so much! So glad you enjoyed yourself.
Fresh, as always, is very good. They changed the recipe for the Buddha, so it's not as flavourful, but it is still okay. The server listened to what I said, and said that she would tell the chef. Normally, it would be a five-star rating. Great restaurant, with terrific service and food.
Thank you so much Miriam! Sorry to hear your Buddha Bowl wasn't exactly right, but glad to hear your comment was passed along. We appreciate your kind words - hope to see you again soon!
Great experience during this pandemic. Thank you for the wonderful food and service
Thank you so much Coby. Your kind words mean so much to us.
Fabulous patio, great social distancing, we were seated promptly, all staff were friendly and efficient and of course the food was fantastic (especially the onion rings!). We highly recommend it!!
Thank you so much for your kind words! We appreciate them so much. I'm so glad to hear you had a great timing dining with us.
I am a regular fresh customer but have only ever ordered take out. I would not recommend visiting the heated patio - we were placed right beside the window and it was absolutely freezing with the wind (couldn’t feel the heaters at all as they really only heat the central tables). We all had jackets on. Our waitress wasn’t friendly and our food was cold as soon as it came out, which made us feel like it wasn’t worth the money.

First time to this restaurant! Service was excellent. We sat on patio and it was a little chilly but bearable. The food was awesome... squash tacos!! ... sssoooo good
Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed your first visit with us. Aren't the Squash Tacos amazing?! Next time give the Buffalo Cauliflower a try - I think you'll love it!
Really nice to be out, food was great and so was the service.
Thanks Kate! So glad to hear you enjoyed both the food and the service.
The patio was cold unfortunately. We were in two and decides to change table closer to the wall and away from the wind but we ended up being right behind another couple now even a meter away. More heaters would help.
Hi Noemi - I'm so sorry to hear that you were cold. All of our tables are at least 6 feet apart, and we're doing our best with the heaters! We're going to take your feedback and see if we can work on making every seat as warm as possible.
Nice heated patio. Ingredients are always "fresh" and service is great as well!
Thank you so much Paul!
Food was great, sever was inhospitable.

We have ate here before and the food was ok but the other night we ordered the same as usual but the ingredients were not at all the same the soba noodles we skinny and mushy the nacho chips and cabbage we’re stale.

Food is outstanding and everyone that works there is so lovely!
Thank you so much, Peggy! Your kind words mean the world to us. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
Food is always excellent and staff are lovely. It's so nice going there on my lunch and enjoying my meal!
Thank you so much, Wanetta. We're so pleased to hear that you enjoy dining with us. See you soon!
I have been eating at Fresh for the last 10 years and unfortunately it has really gone down the last few years since its been completely vegan. I miss the goat cheese in the beach bowl and my other favourite items seem to all be gone.
I got the small budha bowl and it was super dry so I had to ask for more peanut sauce and then the portion is the same size as the bowl so it was impossible to toss.
My friends salad also had little to no dressing on it and she was so excited for corn bread and was offered no other spread when they were out of hummus.
All of this to say that I know prices have gone up and I have no issue paying for good food but its starting to not feel worth it.

They were very diligent with COVID rules.
Food was very good. A little skimpy on the side of fries/poutine.
Thank you Zoe!
Great patio! Heated and very spaced out for safe distancing. Food was delicious, as always.
Thank you for such a kind review Alex! Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
Our waitress Jane, was so lovely! Best waitress ever!
We're so glad to hear that! Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
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!
Thank you so much for your kind words Wanetta, they truly mean the world to us. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
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.
Hi Toni - thank you for your kind words. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
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.
Thank you so much for those kind words! They mean so much to us. Hope to see you again soon.
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.
Hi Sarom, I'm sorry to hear about your most recent experience with us. When you have a moment, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can work to remedy this with you.

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

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
