Service was lacklustre had to request items ordered multiple times. Server was not attentive.
Made us go up to the display to select our choice.

Vegan brunch was welcomed since it’s not always available. Pancakes aren’t usually my thing since my recollection is that they are heavy and leave you feeling tired after a meal but not these pancakes; they were nice and light and gluten free. I had the banana pancakes and looking forward to my next brunch experience.

The space is beautiful. The food was great. They make the best lentil soup. I had bbq burger as always and it was great.

I thought the menu was great! Service was awesome! Food was amazing!

I was only disappointed that there was nothing on the website to indicate that you currently do not have a liquor license as we were really looking forward to the cocktails we had seen on the menu.

Otherwise, excellent!

Newly opened so it was so amazing! From the decorations to all the plates that dishes were served on were all beautiful. Food was amazing as usual. However we had to wait 35 minutes for our food which too ridiculous. We had a good view of the kitchen service counter and everything that was coming out were takeaway boxes, per 10-15 takeaway boxes were one or two in-house dish. Quite disappointing, and until I asked the server why our food is taking so long he said food service is taking around 25 minutes but reality took us 35 since we ordered, and we were very hungry since we sat down at 12:15 and didn't get our food till 1:05pm. We were supposed to have an enjoyable lunch but turns out it was rushed since we had places to be afterwards. Would recommend when they get their service up and prioritise in-house guests who are paying tips for their food services.

This was my first experience at a vegetarian restaurant much to the surprise of my daughter who wanted to try it because she follows a vegetarian diet herself. The BBQ Burger is what was recommended and, well, to my own surprise it was very, very good. I would not hesitate to come back and have it all over again. Everything was well priced and tasted great.

This restaurant has a gorgeous interior, everything from the tile floors, to the green velour couches, to the tassles on the light fixtures. It’s just a great place to sit and eat, and enjoy your surroundings. The food was also excellent, and the vegan cheese is a lot better than I was expecting. Very tasty!!

We found the air conditioning a tad chilly.
The house hot sauce is outstanding.
This spot is a lovely space and the seating is comfortable.
Love the turquoise booth upholstery!

I've been to almost every Fresh location now, and this one is by far my favourite. The ambience is amazing, and it is much easier to have a quiet conversation than the other, more cramped locations. The bar seating is super cute, plus the plush couches make dining at Fresh feel more upscale. I had the Grilled Tofu Tacos and the carrot coconut lime soup; the soup was delicious and the tacos were a bit spicy and very filling. I went with my mother, who ordered the soup and the baby-sized Beach bowl. One thing I will say is that the portion sizes are smaller here, despite costing the same amount as the other locations. I guess you're paying for the ambience (and the free wifi, which not all locations have). Already have plans to come back next week!

The new Fresh on Front is great. The decor, food and service were fantastic. The only thing I would comment on is the lack of AC. On a hot day it's not the most comfortable place to dine. It wasn't sweltering, but it wasn't cool either. Overall I had a good experience. I would dine there again and maybe even pop by for cocktails.

I'm a huge fan of fresh and I absolutely love the front Street location. It will be my new go to for all of my dinners at fresh. Unlike the other locations, this on is so roomy and the decor is wonderful. When designing this restaurant, they really made it feel open, airy and cozy. Even with it being busy, you can still hear yourself think and you don't have the closeness of tables, like the other locations.

Delicious food and beautiful decor! Will definitely be back soon! I went with a non-vegan friend and she was amazed at how good everything tasted!

Pleased that Fresh was able to accommodate our group of eight. As always, food was fresh, delicious and wholesome. This location is not wheelchair accessible, as there are stairs to enter. Surprised to learn that they didn’t have their liquor license, as we in the mood for a cocktail. It all worked out, as we had a healthy detox juice instead.
