The Green Wood
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.
First time here and we loved it. The food was great and the service was VERY friendly and fun. Love the ambience, especially all the greenery. Will be back!
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.
Nice place to eat. Food and service were good. Just too noisy for conversation.
the food was really good and the staff there were very friendly, it's a very comfortable casual brunch place for chatting with a friend.
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.
Third visit and The Green Wood continues to provide excellent food and service. I enjoyed the Barcelona. The shrimp were perfect!
The staff and chef were accommodating to us, for our Christmas lunch. The food was very good and healthy.
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.
Very welcoming, accomodating and friendly staff. Delicious and beautiful meals. Vegan options.
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.
First time. Visited based on an IG post of the Salmon Rosti. Tried it and it tasted as good as it looked!
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!
Good ambiance! Very friendly service! food is ok
We ordered at 11:30am and our lunch didn’t come until 12:45, waiter seemed more excusey vs apologetic
Amazing service, amazing food! Would go back in a heartbeat! Brunch was fantastic!
Had the salmon rosti, and would highly recomend! Everything was amazing!
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 place can be busy so weekday lunch or breakfast works best. Loved this place - great food, great atmosphere!!!
great value early bird breakfast. Glad I made a reservation! Like the lively ambience and friendly service.
We loved our lunch at The Green Wood! The bowls are amazing, as is the grilled cheese. I can't wait to go back!
The atmosphere was amazing and the food was good. I️ wish I️ lived close by, because I️ would go at least weekly.
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.
Farewell breakfast for a great friend who's retiring and moving far, far away... many ooh's and aah's about presentation as well as taste.... plus our server was a delight.
The food is excellent. Will definitely be back to explore the rest of the menu.
One of the best meals I've ever had. Food is fresh and delicious, staff are very friendly, and the decor is so adorable.
