LOV King West
We went there on a Sunday afternoon. We were sat in the patio and our table was ready in no time. The patio is not heated but the weather was awesome so no complaints.
We ordered the Brussels sprout and the dumplings for appetizer. Both were really yummy and satisfying. For entree we got their burgers and tacos. The burgers come with a decent side of fries and the portion size is overall very good, and the quality as well.
After dinner we got their signature drinks (their potion), the lavender latte and the golden latte, both with oat milk. We enjoyed both as it was getting a bit chilly but flavor-wise, the lavender latte was a bit bland and underwhelming. The golden latte was really delicious though. We also got their cheesecake and brownies. We were really happy with the flavor, but as with most vegan desserts, the texture was a bit dough-y.
The service was kinda slow and they looked understaffed, but they were nice and professional. Going by the location, you can expect the patio tables to be noisy, but we live in a quiet neighborhood and frankly missed the sound of downtown.
Overall, great experience. I’m not vegan but I will definitely pay them another visit once dine-in opens :)
I love eating at Lov the staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the food is delicious.
Amazing vegan food
Grossly under staffed! We waited over an hour for the food. Most things tasted okay but the food was over priced for the service.
Pathetically slow service .. avg food and pricey dishes .. one server and one chef for an over booked patio
We ate on the patio in early November when indoor Dining was not permitted. The patio was nice enough, but there were no heaters. I was disappointed to see they were not using the patio at the side of the restaurant- so we were right on king street.
New favourite spot! Highly recommend the tacos! Service was amazing
The staff here helped make my cousin's birthday dinner extra special and sweet with their amazing service and surprise birthday dessert after our meal :) Also, the risotto here is UNREAL. I dream about it at night. Might leave my boyfriend so I can devote myself wholly to that risotto, just saying.
Lovely dinner, I believe our server was Emily. She was very kind.
We sat in the alley beside the restaurant which was a much better option than busy King street or inside with the annoying music. The server was attentive and friendly. The food was mostly great. Some items were better than last time (beet tartare is better with the avo under, kimchi fries were cooked perfectly and had more kimchi this time). Some items were not as good (Brussell sprouts were WAY overcooked and too saucy, the Manhattan fell flat with its blandness). The tempeh and noodle soup of the day was awesome!
Everything was fan
Really delicious food.
Went on wine Wednesday, and what a great deal ! Service was also really great.
The food is really good especially their kimchi fries are a must to try. We went around 9 pm and was the end of their working day, our server was in hurry and taking whatever he assumed we are done without asking us that was not really nice! Though we received complimentary glasses of sparkling upon arrival as we mentioned it is our anniversary which was really nice of the host.
The cheese in the Mac& cheese was terrible, and the dumplings had salt added to the outside which I didn’t like. My friend really enjoyed his burger and poutine. I really liked both staff members that assisted us. I was especially pleased that they allowed us to sit inside even though our reservation was for outside. Food also arrived quickly.
It was my husband’s birthday! Really liked LOV - in terms of different cuisine when it comes to vegan food. We had Italian, Mexican and Asian spread across apps to mains.
You just need to get patio heaters. :)
We had the pleasure of being serves by Miles. He was fantastic! Very attentive and even made us a special drink on request - the Tidal Wave.... Highly recommend it!
Chris is a wonderful host. Kind, funny and attentive. Seems like a hard working guy, make sure he gets a raise!
My fiancé and I thoroughly enjoyed the ambience, good and customer service. Whenever you go please try the black bean burger, poutine, beet tartar, French onion soup and the coconut curry. Definitely returning again!
Lovely ambience and amazing menu - so many options to choose from for vegetarians like me. Service was great as well and loved the concept of wine Wednesday with half priced wine bottles.
Amazing! The service was amazing, friendly, attentive, exactly how it was supposed to be. Great food, many choices, well done chef. I was hesitant at the beginning as we passed by a couple of times without a reservation and there was an unnecessary attitude from the hostess and never texted us back for an available table. This time we made a reservation and everything was perfect.
Such a cute brunch spot! Loved the decor. The hosts are awesome.
Food is delicious! We had the caesar salad, general tofu and Mac and cheese. Would definitely come back and try other things on the menu
love this place, great food, excellent service. A little on the pricey side, but well wort it!
The food was absolutely delicious! All the staff were so kind and great company to talk to as well. We ordered the Beet Tartare, Mushroom Risotto and Gnocchi...everything was superb and I can't wait to come again !
LOV is both cozy and airy bringing together vintage cottage and modern design together. The food was delicious, my date and I had the dumplings (to die for), the mac & cheese and the mushroom risotto. It was all delicious, especially the crispy mushrooms on the risotto *chefs kiss*. The service was great - fast, kind and very friendly. Lastly, the whole experience felt very Covid safe. The tables are far apart and they have very smart glass window partitions to keep tables separated. It felt comfortable and...normal, which is so nice to feel again. I will definitely be back!
Lavender Latte and the Lemonade are incredible drinks to have!
Our first vegan experience and was a great choice. Beautiful restaurant and very good service.
I LOV vegan restaurants! I've wanted to visit this chain since I heard about the location in Montreal . From previous reviews I knew the menu would be limited but I was a little bit disappointed by the options! I've been to many vegan places in Toronto and this one was just mediocre for me in terms of taste and plating.
The interior is pretty, there are plastic dividers between tables inside and a pretty packed patio. There was only 1 dessert option, an $8 brownie so we went somewhere else for dessert. My french fries were very good, burger was just okay. The cheese I felt did not add any flavour to it. I also ordered the "Look of Lov" cocktail which isn't pictured but it was very good, I was hesitant about aquafaba being an ingredient but the foam on top added some texture that I didn't expect, almost like an alcoholic latte! Overall I don't think I will be visiting Lov again, but it was a cute place to check out and King Street West is always very lively!
A must for vegans and vegetarians in Toronto, or anyone interested in good food for that matter.
Excellent food and good value with decent portions. Food was very fresh and the service excellent. Great spot on King too. Highly reccommended even if you're not vevan.
Best vegan restaurant ever! Highly recommend the brownie for dessert! Will continue to come back to this place! They also had great safety measures in place for covid (we felt comfortable enough dining inside, due to the socially distanced layout).
The service was excellent. The general tao and the brussel sprouts were delicious. The Thai curry was a little dissapointing. The coffee was excellent. Will def come back.
Great location, ambience, service and food. One of our favorite places in King West. This is our go to spot.
Amazing food and stunning atmosphere. 10/10 would recommend this restaurant to anyone!
Excellent service, they made every attempt to ensure our satisfaction for health and safety. Menu are use once and recycle, cleaning of table and chair (even as we were the 1st seating for dinner). Food was outstanding and great tasting.
Overpriced average food but nice atmosphere. Good service.
It was my second time here in a month - great place! The staff is really friendly. The only thing I would say is the Brussels sprouts were completely charred - the manager was super friendly and took it back right away. Thanks - will be back!
Yum! Love this place!
We were seated in the side patio, and it was so lovely. This was our first time eating out since pre-COVID, and it was such a nice treat. I felt very safe, and would definitely go back. Great COVID procedures.
