The food was generally good. The ginger carrot soup was tasty but was very thick and not really a soup. The serving of Gnocci Alla Cassa could have been larger for the price of $18. It was more the size of a serving of a table d'hote lunch menu and not a full price item.

There were four of us and we absolutely loved the decor and thought the servers were excellent, though they left us alone for too long before we flagged one of them.

The risotto was bland and lukewarm. The truffles/caviar was so-so and bland. Lasagna and caesar salad very good. I forget the other meal.

Our table was next to the kitchen window. Constant ringing of the bell for food pick up was startling. Our entrees ended up sitting in the window for a long time while my companion finished his starter. When they finally served us my entree was pretty much cold. I went right for the center and got a couple warmish bites. I should've asked for them to reheat it but I didn't want my companion to feel badly. I'll go back but only because there are so few strictly vegetarian places.

We decided to brave the cold on this Friday evening for a well deserved night out. We were greeted warmly and welcomed by the manager. I do not have her name but she recently has a little baby (congratulations again!). We had reserved 2 seats at the bar that were waiting for us. We started wit a couple of drinks. A Spritz des Iles made with locally sourced bitter liquor and a glass of Cava sparkling for her. First course: fauxmage plate and cesar kale. 3 different kinds of vegan cheese served with croutons and onion compote. Texture and taste are perfect. The cesar is creamy and filled with cherry tomatoes and cucumber. Also very tasty. The second course follows: mushroom and vegetable dumplings: airy, delicate and slightly crispy envelope with delicious filling accompanied by an almond sauce, sweet potato fries light, long and elegant with aioli sauce and finally the Brussel sprouts dark caramelized wonders. Accompanied by a bottle of Camas white wine, crisp and mineral. We finish the meal with a crème brûlée and a cheese cake. All vegan of course. I can tell you that the eggs and dairy were not missed. The deserts were wonderful. Texture, taste and appearance were spot on. A special thank you to the manager and to Alex behind the bar. He was really kind and amazing

The ambiance is great with wonderful decor. I was disappointed with most of the food though; many people I’ve spoken to have raved about LOV. We were there for dinner and ordered a kale Caesar that was 10% kale and the rest was romaine. Then for mains we had the gnocchi which was incredibly dense and tasted very sweet. However, we also ordered the zoodles with truffle sauce which was delicious! I guess maybe I just had too high of expectations..

Despite it being a busy weekend due to the valentine's day long weekend our service was on time, professional and not rushed. The food itself was delicious with an appropriate serving size leaving you satisfied. The desserts were presented really well, very light and again perfect serving size. Oh and the mocktails were well made, beautifully garnished and tasty. My partner and I were very happy that LOV had a mocktail menu. The dinner was a little surprise for my partner to celebrate our 7 year anniversary so from the decor of the front steps to the ambiance inside to food and drink she loved all of it. We would highly recommend LOV on McGill to anyone.
