The food here is good, I was given undercooked chicken this time which was unfortunate.

The service could definitely use an upgrade or lesson in how to work as a server.

When I got there, they hadn't noticed my reservation. Thankfully there was a table that needed cleaning so they were able to accommodate us, about 10 minutes late. When we were all seated, we ordered, but they had run out of about 30% of the menu by that point (and it was only 1pm). When the food came there was no cutlery, so we had to chase down a server and ask, and it took a while but came without napkins. About 10 minutes later, one of my friends got up and found napkins for the table. The food was good but it was loud and what we had planned on ordering was gone. It was busy but not too busy to pay attention to us. I am sure it was just a bad day. I will give it another chance but not a third....

I loved the food, my drink and the vibe, my only feedback is that the servers were not very accomodating to me bringing in a stroller- it was lunch time during the week when a lot of people on mat leave would bring in babies and I didn’t feel welcomed.

It's so nice to see a nicely designed restaurant thriving in this spot. I also love their classic breakfast, which, truth be told, is THE only thing I've ordered (though other dishes ARE tempting, like the souk fries). The staff are easy going, the coffee was bottomless (A++++), and the ambiance is mellow. LOVE IT. Will always go back. Great addition to Leslieville.

Was OK, packed with small families & little ones. Chill atmosphere accompanied with chill service, but mixed with frantic pace. However, food was good and would come back.

The Green Wood is a wonderful spot for breakfast and brunch. The food was executed perfectly and the ambiance is picture perfect with lots of natural light and greenery everywhere within the venue. It's a very mellow and calming place to come for a delicious cup of tea.

Wanted to try this restaurant after seeing numerous Instagram posts advertising the smoked salmon rosti. The food was pretty good although nothing too special, somewhat bland and heavy with oils. We went for brunch and had the salmon rosti and souk fries. The ingredient combinations were delectable and that's what caught our eye. However, it felt as though a lot of things could be made at home. Service was somewhat cold and infrequent, I expected a more enthusiastic team after seeing the bright and hip decor. Pricing was good for brunch. Overall pleasant experience but I think the restaurant may be better suited to locals who live nearby instead of warranting a drive across town for a special brunch.

We had 3 kids with us and the staff were so accommodating and kind. We ate well (our friends dining with us recommended the Green Wood as they’d been before) and we will definitely return!

Nice atmosphere for brunch/lunch. Lovely staff. Food portion was small compared to the price (eg their salad as a main dish, is the same price as one from Fresh but half the size).

This was my first time at Grern Wood - was there with two friends for breakfast (rosti potato pancake with smoked salmon, cucumber, salad and two poached eggs) The food was absolutely delicious and the service was fabulous. I want to try it for other meals next. Will become one of my go -to breakfast spots! Wonderful place!

The Smoked Salmon Rosti I ordered was rock hard; I'm used to having rosti somewhat soft and easy to cut with a fork; the rosti I was served was not edible; I could not even cut into it with pieces of it flying everywhere.
