Food is always great at Fresh - some items can be pricey though. Our server was nice but seemed busy so didn’t really interact with us. We asked someone else for another drink and her response wasn’t the friendliest telling us it’s not her we need to ask the server - she could have atleast passed along the msg, we had to wait 10 more minutes to order the second drink. The aesthetic of the restaurant is very nice - Instagram worthy for sure!

Good Service, Great ambiance, disappointing soup and cornbread. salad was great and quinoa onion rings stellar
No consideration given by server when soup was not eaten and was made clear that flavour was not enjoyable.
Could have made a small concession as we spent a few $ there

Coming here is stressful because it is so hard to decide what to eat from
The delicious menu! All their entrees are delicious. I always get their Quinoa Onion Rings. They have happy staff, Fresh on Front is their best location!

We came to Fresh on Front for my pals birthday brunch on a Saturday around noon. There were three of us (all vegan). The food was delicious with many cocktails/juices/lattes/smoothies to choose from - literally an entire menu of just beverages from alcoholic to hot to super healthy! The food menu was just as impressive with a small breakfast food item menu and a large lunch/dinner menu. My one friend ordered the banana pancakes, the other ordered “the big breakfast”, and I ordered the tangled Thai bowl. All three were eaten up in no time!

The only compliant is that we wanted to order a doughnut dessert for the birthday girl, and their selection was a lot smaller than their menu. We asked for a few different types and the waiter kept saying “sorry we don’t have that one”. I’m unsure if it was because they weren’t made yet as it was early in the day or of it was because they were sold out. But we still got a wonderful birthday dessert & she was one happy camper (so no big deal there!).

Would recommend to all vegan and non-vegan pals. Hope to return real soon!!!

I have been a fan of Fresh for years. I have been to the Front street location twice now. It has all of the same yummy menu items and friendly service as the other locations with an upscale decor. It is decorated beautifully. It feels like a fancier location, with the same menu. The dessert menu has been increased now with donuts and cinnamon buns, which is always a treat.

We were there to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The food was delicious! Our waitress was attentive. The only negative comment I have is I asked for a virgin caesar for my daughter and they charged me the same exorbitant price! I asked for the vodka on the side and the waitress said she didn't think they would do that. I should have asked for the manager. Who knew that vodka is free?

Fresh is my all-time favourite restaurant in the world and I usually have a great experience when going there however, service this past Saturday night was definitely not up to usual standard.

The restaurant seemed extremely understaffed and/or overwhelmed by how busy it was. Food took quite a long time to come out and there were a few times that we were not able to find anyone to assist us with various requests (i.e. - I ended up going to the bar table in the back to get the hot sauce myself as we couldn't find someone to get this for us - we also couldn't find someone to help us with our bill and ended up waiting much longer than was needed. To add, in the middle of my dinner and after checking in, I missed a call from the restaurant and then subsequently received a notice from Open Table that I had missed my reservation - obviously not the case as I was in the middle of dining.

Finally, I ordered the Beach Bowl which is my favorite meal and I have had it countless times however, this time, I found that it was way too heavy on the rice and hardly had any of the other vegetables included. Definitely not worth the normal value.

I will definitely not be crossing Fresh off my list, but a few things to consider for going forward.

Beautiful new location! I usually love the food at Fresh but did not like the brunch. Tofu scramble was really dry and could use some veggies mixed in. Sausage was okay. Pancakes tasted good but were a bit tough and also dry (the syrup helped). Would not recommend ordering from the brunch menu.

I have eaten at Fresh many, many times, usually at the Boor location, and sometimes on Eglinton and Spadina.
I am pretty consistent with what I eat. I used to almost always get the Beach Bowl. Now I get the Macro Bowl. I have also had various burgers and wraps.
First of all, the service is always terrific. Top marks there.
The noise level is always so high, we try to get there early. I had hoped that with the renovations, some design feature might have helped to quiet things down a bit, but no luck there. Calling the atmosphere "energetic:" is pushing it :)
I have usually chosen Fresh as a place to meet many of my friends for lunch as I am a vegan and they are not. Fresh always gives so many choices and everyone ends up having a good meal.
I will comment only on the Macro Bowl. First of all, the full size is a very generous portion. I love the mix of ingredients and the "sauerkraut" is sharp, tangy and delicious. Sometimes, when I order this meal, the greens (broccoli, bok choy, etc) are overcooked, but this time they were perfect. However, it seems like you cook all your ingredients without seasoning. Everything is bland until you pour some dressing over the top. When this runs out, the food remaining is not very tasty. Yes, perhaps I should just enjoy the natural flavours of the food. And I do, but ... Maybe you give people choices with dressings so they can season food the way they like. And, as mentioned, that's fine until the dressing runs out. I personally enjoy food that has a point of view based on the vision of the chef. If I don't like that point of view, I'll chose something else.
I will continue to eat at Fresh, but with many more options available now, and with really good food too, I will eat at Fresh less often.

Very busy for dinner so the service was very slow. An hour wait for those with no reservations. The manager apologized for the slow service and took 20% of the bill. I quiet enjoyed the hip urban decor and even though the place was busy the noise legal did not interfere with our conversation.

Brunch was very good. Vegan and gluten free. However a piece of gluten free toast would have enhanced the meal.
