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.

We had a delightful lunch here. The food was varied and terrific and we really enjoyed the make-your-own mimosas... pear and OJ were both absolutely delicious. The service was delightful and our group of six really didn't want to leave!

Second visit, great place with positive and helpful staff (held doors for my elderly mother), nice relaxed and interesting decor with good mix of old and new and quality materials, music is ambient which is perfect to allow easy conversation, food is very good.

I always like this restaurant. Always a great service but last Thursday we were not impressed!!!
Food was good (a bit salty ) but we did not like the service, cold even a little small from our waitress... quite not usually!! Maybe a bad day for her!

Il n'est pas nécessaire de remplir constamment les verres d'eau pendant le repas, la discussion à table s'en trouve chaque fois perturbée et cela ne contribue pas à créer une atmosphère conviviale. Également, le style musical ne nous a pas semblé des plus appropriés.

Un manque d'originalité dans les saveurs, cuisine un peu relevée sans plus, tartrate de betterave qui goutait que le cumin, pas d’acidité, ni de salinité ni un piquant du poivre, pas de fine herbe dans le plat ! . Le cari de patate douce au lait de coco, la patate douce très bien cuite et savoureuse mais sa sauce manque de piquant et de subtilité en bouche, trop laiteuse

L’endroit est magnifique et les serveurs sympathiques, mais la nourriture était vraiment so so. Nous avons partagé l’entrée de poutine. Je comprends que le faux-mage est moins fondant mais là il était carrément froid, donc aucune chance que ça fonde et peu agréable en bouche (le plat en général était tiède). Nous avons ensuite pris le burger de tofu croustillant et le « poke bowl ». Tous deux étaient bien présentés mais vraiment fades au niveau du goût.. je suis végane et malheureusement, je ne reviendrai pas de sitôt.... il y a d’autres restos plus intéressants pour la nourriture.

Le service a été parfait jusqu'au moment où notre assiette a été retirée, avoir la facture ça a été long. Je ne sais pas pourquoi. Mais mineur. Voter sondage est en anglais!! Les repas sont copieux donc excellent rapport qualité-quantité-prix. Un peu serré et bruyant le midi. Je vais revenir. Vous vous affichez comme végé plus que vegan. Personnellements j'aime mieux le végétarien qui permet les produits laitiers. Je ne mange pas de substitut de fromage, aucune confiance dans la nature de ces produits.

A good variety for Celiac and vegan patrons. The LOV mimosas were great! Made with pear juice instead of orange... not as sweet and just as delicious! I went with 4 other ladies and we all ordered something different and shared because there was so many yummy dishes we wanted to try. The ambiance and decor was also so beautiful. I highly recommend this place!
