Vibo Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Great Taste, great timing, high end service, exceeded my expectations
It had been many years since we ate there but the food was as good as we remember
friendly atmosphere, good service, and very accommodating server
Beautiful food, fabulous service, quite perfect from start to finish. The live piano was a lovely surprise. Our dinner at Vibo was a terrific way to celebrate a special family moment. Thank you!
This was our first visit to Vibo for our entire table. We had a great experience and will be returning again, for sure.
We found the atmosphere, service, food and entertainment to be nothing short of fantastic.
The serving staff were very professional, exceptionally knowledgeable and fun. They made our experience even more enjoyable.
There I no doubt Vibo has a tremendous management team with a very strong focus on customer service.
Thanks to all for making my wife's birthday experience an exceptional evening.
This was my first visit to Vibo. I was looking for a nice location, with a well received menu, for a reunion with a friend I had not seen in over 45 years. The staff at Vibo did not disappoint. Our waiter was fantastic! Friendly, cheerful, attentive ( but also intuitive enough to stand down when he knew we were in the middle of a conversation) and professional in that he took my allergies very seriously and helped create a delicious safe meal for me. The food was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was lovely and conducive to the type of catching up my friend and I had to do lol. (I loved the bar area, although we didn't sit there... next time ).
I truly look forward to dining there again, and using the ease of "Open Table" to reserve a table.
Forgot how good the food was here. Will be back soon.
Love the new look. Much brighter. Seemed so dark before. Service was amazing. Much to choose from on the menu. Food was beyond excellent. We live thus place. Thank you for a great evening.
Have not been here since renovations!
Decor has changed, but food is till up to the usual high standard.
Addition of Piano and music during dinner was a nice touch.
Staff is very good and attentive.
Enjoyed my night, will most likely go back again!
We enjoyed a wonderful meal! The wine list was amazing too!
Amazing food, Amazing service, Amazing space, great value and fantastic owners. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great night out.
It was my granddaughter's 18th birthday and we all loved our dinner and the whole evening.
We hadn't been to VIBO for several years. Friends told us they go there frequently and told us how much they enjoyed it. It was our wedding anniversary and since VIBO had been recommended by our friends, we decided to try it. We were very pleased that we did. The food and service were excellent.
From the moment we walked in, the service was exceptional. The waiter we had was knowledgeable on both food and drink. The calamari was freshly cut and fried and very tender. Our main dishes were equally delicious and made with quality ingredients. Dessert was also good but not to the same level as the appetizers and main course but still quite delicious. Will definitely be heading back for another dinner there! Live piano was amazing as well, you must try this gem.
Food was wonderfulas akways. Liked the new decor. Very calm and serene
Love the place but this night the noise at the back was overwhelming...large crowds next to us and the waiters were all over the place........disappointed!
I think we were at VIBO on a bad night, food took an extraordinarily long time to come from the kitchen. The seafood pasta was thin on seafood, our friend ordered liver that she said was excellent and my wife had the lasagna which she liked. At these prices, the food simply has to be better.
Renos look good. Brighter and less old school than before but it's still old school.
Asked for a quiet table and received one. Service was very good and he was informative. On point.
Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The waiter was very attentive but did not rush us . The food and wine were excellent.
Dinner was absolutely delicious. The service was fantastic. It was my first time at Vibo but I will definitely be back.
The food is very good and normally so is the service. The service was lacking this time. We will be back however.
We Celebrated a birthday at Vibo and we found that the food was outstanding. The staff was very good and the wine list was fairly extensive and not crazy expensive. There were 5 of us and we all agreed that we would love to come back. We would all recommend.
Awesome evening all around.
We were right by the piano which was a little too loud but only because we were right beside it.
Nice round table for five. Piano music was soft and mood setting. Everyone loved their meals. We picked a great 2009 Bordeaux. Stayed for almost 3 hours....great evening.
Wonderful choice for one of this summer's summerlicious experience's. VIBO had a menu with something for every palette. Three of us start with the Beet and Goat Cheese salad and it was amazing. Beautiful colour from the beets with a pop of goat cheese. So good. It was hard to choose from the mains they all sounded spectacular. I had the prosciutto and cheese stuffed meatball and it did not disappoint. All the meals were plated with perfection and the quality of the food was stellar. The deserts were all delish. Two of the girls had the date sticky toffee pudding and it was so good. Just the perfect size and a rich ,warm flavour. Great location if you use the TTC as it right on Bloor and across the road from the main entrance of the Royal York subway stop. Ample parking in the lots across the road. Enjoy!
Total experience was excellent. The three of us thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. If I could have licked the plate I would have lol and that says it all! Hadn't been here in a very long time and would certainly return.
Went to Vibo for Summerlicious and overall was very good. Portion sizes were huge for the price ($38 for a 3 course dinner). I had the polenta fries, the duck linguine, and the pannacotta. Everything was amazing but unfortunately I'm not a big eater so I ended up bringing most of it home. My boyfriend had the meatball, the steak and the brownie and loved everything! They had a pianist which created a nice ambiance but there was a drunk loud lady at the table beside us that kinda killed the vibe.
Excellent!! 5 stars! Our new fave resto! Have tried several dishes all fantastic
As always a it was pleasure having dinner again At vibo
As a note. The female employee who greeted us and sat us. Thus replacing the owner for the evening. .... she is marvelous. So courteous and professional and welcoming Our waiter. Equally good
Everything was fantastic! Food, ambiance, location and wait staff! Very professional lots of selection! Already trying to plan our return! Truly a staple!
Spectacular as usual! Went Thursday night with 5 people and again Friday with 8 people!
Superb food at reasonable value! Have Agnes make her famous martinis!
Great restaurant and excellent service. Food as always was spectacular. Would recommend it to anyone.
The food was very good and the service was efficient and friendly. The noise level however was too loud making conversations very difficult.
Food never disappoints. Tasty options and just enough. Wine selection is great. Definitely recommend and they have a piano playing during dinner but not too loud to have a conversations. My husband had the seafood risotto and it was so nice to have a risotto that actually was mostly seafood instead of rice. I had a fish that was broiled skin on and perfectly cooked. Wine list was good too.
We went to Vibo for my mother-in-law's 80th birthday. It was fantastic. The service was exceptional. The food and atmosphere were great. There was a gentleman playing the piano. All in all, an awesome experience. Would absolutely recommend it.
The restaurant is very noisy. The piano player is a lovely feature but you can hardly hear him over the noise unfortunately.
From start to finish the entire experience was excellent. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone, it is definitely worth the drive :))
Excellent service. Clean but plain decor. Food and service make this place a repeat favorite.
Very nice ambience. Food was good. I especially enjoyed the live piano music.
