Was very busy the night we visited. Reserved table was ready when we arrived. Very pleasant and helpful server. After ordering it took approximately 45 minutes for food to arrive. Waiter was apologetic and provided coupons for use at a future time. Good was delicious as usual.

Best onion rings anywhere. Salads are generous with interesting ingredients. Pricey.

Everything was amazing, but it was super rediculous that someone in our party was unable to order a vodka Soda because drinks cannot be modified and fresh does not offer bar rail.

We were willing to pay for the Caesar and just get vodka soda, but everyone was unaccomodating

So silly

Good restaurants, great options, service was kind of slow took a while for the server to come to our table. I had made reservations but when I went they apparently had no idea, but still accommodated us with a table.

Took my wife and my two sisters for lunch. All have birthdays in the same month. The food and service was awesome. Will certainly recommend and will will be back again when in Toronto. It’s great to have restaurants that specialize in plant based eating. Thanks.

the hostess didn't know we were 3 vs. 2. Even though reso made and confirmed for 3. Threw her off. Totally forgot about menus, cutlery, water even though we were 3 feet from her the whole time.
Our server forgot about us in her section. Showed up at the end with the bill admitting she forgot about us.
Once food delivered, didn't get asked how was everything? Do you need anything? Literally had to chase some one for a cup of water.

Food was great, no one was rude, just really not great service. Seems like they were too busy or not enough staff perhaps. Took some one there to impress. They were not pleased.

I've been to Fresh many times. The menu has lots of options and the food the healthy and delicious. I'd recommend Fresh to those on a plant-based diet and those who eat a more varied diet. I look forward to coming back.

As the restaurant got busier, the service level dropped. I have been to other Fresh franchises and had a better experience. Dessert (carrot cake and chocolate cake) was really good.

Very good food, perfect for a vegetarian! It took a while to get the food, we were a group of 7 though. The noise level was rather high, and some of us, me included, felt cold. We were seated by the window...

I loved it! The menu was so interesting and had so many cool options. I noticed it wouldn't be too difficult for my vegan, gluten free friends to find something to eat. I was a little bit of a struggle to find food for me because I have a hiatus hernia with severe heartburn and I can't take anything spicy or acidic, which rules out all spicy food ( particularly chili and cinnamon), anything with cooked tomatoes or raw onions, a lot of pickled items, anything too sugary, all wine, spirits, liqueur, coffee and tea. The lattes we tried ( turmeric and rose) had way too much ginger, and the turmeric one had way too much black pepper. There is no need to fall into the trap of using too much salt or spice or seasoning that many restaurants do. A better option would be to keep food delicately flavoured and allow the true taste of the food to come out, and to keep condiments and extra spice or seasoning on the tables or available upon request. This is a fantastic restaurant and I will definitely come again and recommend it to my friends and family. I hope you will consider my comments and reduce the ginger content.

We enjoyed our food

However, the service was somewhat slow. Some of our party arrived earlier than others and the server didn't come by to ask if they wanted anything to drink or to start while they waited. It also seemed to take a long time for the bills to come and since they weren't correct, staff then had to take them back and re-issue them.

Overall, the food was good and we enjoyed each others' company.

Ummm was not the best today. I’ve been here before when everything was on point, from service to food to ambience, however tonight was a disappointment. As we entered, we were told food was going to take about 25-30 minutes. The food was also cold when it arrived and needed to be remade. Our server was great at first, however after we made our order, he was nowhere to be found. We had a different server bring us our food, we had to ask anyone willing to stop for help with reheating our food, getting napkins, and asking for the bill. Today was a disappointment, however the food- despite being cold- was good.

Fresh's brunch is my favorite in the city. I recommend the pancake platter, any type of pancakes is amazing. It's also my favorite restaurant overall, the amount of options is amazing and the food is always so delicious. I strongly recommend the tiger bowl on soba noodles, the acai bowl and the buffalo cauliflowers.
