Extremely disappointing. Both the quality of the food and service were terrible. I would not recommend going. Our pizza came cold and tasteless. It took more than 20 minutes for our waiter to come back to find out that we were unhappy with it.

Love the food but the server was extremely pushy- refused to let me order a smaller pasta even though I insisted. First time this happens at this resto

We tried this restaurant before on a cruise ship and we were impressed, but when we find this one in Yorkdale shopping center was rate 3.6 on Google, so we did not try. Last night, we decided and gave it a try and found the found was as good as we tried before. The service was excellent. The only minor complain is there is no entrance from the shopping center, it will be cold in the winter time.

Server was unattentive...
Food was bad. We ordered pizza, came out only slightly warm. Spaghetti fongole, Pasta came out in clumps... sent the food back. 2nd one pasta came out ok... but the food was just poor quality. Ordered also a “famous prawn pasta”. shrimp was like frozen tiny, and packaged...

I was looking forward to the grilled squid. However when it arrived it was way overcooked and much of it was burned. They did give me a free dessert which was nice!

This was my 2nd time visiting the restaurant in the past year. The service needs more improvement. Their was no cutlery or napkins at our table. No sugar or milk for our coffees. And my girlfriend had to ask for the ketchup after her food had already arrived. The desserts were lacking flavor and quality.

Here are my observations as following;
1. Unavailable Dishes in the menu were not cross out and even the server is unaware.
2. 60% of the servers were busy Chit chatting at around 1:16pm on 17th Sept 2019. Non of the server came to us to place our orders and instead busy chit chatting. I have to approach the server for the bill at their counter since most of them are no where to be seen. Some of them ignore us even though we waved.
3. The overall taste of the food particularly the simple Spaghetti Bolognese is way below standard. Totally out of Jamie Oliver expected standard. Furthermore I bought some clients from oversea and its totally embarrassing.
4. I won’t recommend or step into this restaurant anymore

Our starter focaccia served without plates. Requested pepperoncino & parmeasan twice before it was brought to our table. Food was good but service was mediocre.

Main issue was with my vongole, It was so over salted that I sent it back. Another plate showed up quickly with little improvement. In addition to the salt the amount of clams was very small and pasta was very undercooked. All else was good especially pizza. Noisy atmosphere though.

Everyone in our group gobbled up their food except for the steak connoisseur who did not enjoy his steak dish. The server asked if he wanted to order something else but he said that he was OK for the moment. His wife instead asked to take it home to be enjoyed another day. Complements for all the other dishes from the group. My husband and I have been to Jamie's in the past, but was a first for the others and were happy with the restaurant choice.

We'll be back again.

We come here everytime we travel to Toronto as it is convenient but the food quality is not as good as it used to be. They need to step it up again. I ordered the superfood salad this time and no cottage cheese in it. Salads are usually pretty good but a bit on the pricey side. Last time I ordered the mushroom pizza and it was stretched so thin it was soggy and gross. This used to be a great place to eat, relax and unwind, but seems like the manager is not managing the quality of the food

Too noisy (young families, screaming kids) Uncomfortable chairs in dining, pizzas were not hot, charcuterie board was a RIP off. My pasta was good. Too pricey when all considered.
I was disappointed - I was excited to go and try because I love Jamie's cooking style- have and use his cookbooks, food-tube all the time. Sorry! I wish I had better reviews and sorry that I won't be returning.

The food was ok. We did a bunch of apps and a pizza with the 2 salads.
The service was disappointing.
Our waiter came at the beginning. Then we had to flag him down all night.
Our second course took forever to arrive.
He never came back to see how we were doing.

First time dining there with some out of town family visiting. Sarah was our server and she was excellent. We will return - thank you. All 5 of us had pasta - but there is much more on the menu to enjoy on next visit.

Everything was good minus the food. The food was super bland and this was across three different main courses. Serious improvement needed as this has been my second experience like this.

The kids’ menu salad was far too acidic with too much balsamic vinegar for a child’s taste.
My salad with cottage cheese and pomegranate seeds was too spicy, did not gave enough cottage cheese nor enough pomegranate seeds to be really refreshing! The pizza, the soup and the pasta were good.

The calamari was delicious! The pasta I had wasn’t great flavour and had something off about it.
The food gave me indigestion and I had a stomachache the rest of the day.
They sat us at the back, dark part of the restaurant. It seemed they were keeping the front clear and empty, which is odd because it wasn’t busy and the front was much more aesthetically pleasing than the back corner.
Wouldn’t go back
