We had the chocolate fudge cake and it was absolutely amazing. We would definitely order the whole cake if we could. The food was also delicious but that cake was over the top delish!!

I didn’t find the food full of flavor. But my experience has been different in the past.

Food was ok this time

We ordered the broccoli and it was a huge miss.
Budda bowl was bland this time.

Quinoa onions fries with chipotle dip is a must...I literally travelled an hour just for them.
Also their burgers and juices ...you can’t go wrong.

Second time here and again food was amazing and service outstanding. Only reason I gave lower score on ambience is because we sat in a different section. The tables for two are too close together and everyone struggles to get in and out without knocking everything over on the table beside making it uncomfortable and a little embarrassing. Also sunset blinds would be great!

Food was good but side order of fries was very small and over fried nearly burnt. Pretty pricey for what we got.

Loved the Reno’s and food as usual. I miss the huge serving of big salad that I got to go and the old dressing (goddess) of years past. It’s not the same - too small and the Caesar dressing just tastes like hummus. I also miss the black bean burrito.
Very nice experience. Waitresses were very pleasant and efficient. Can’t wait to return. Open another in Aurora! Fresh would do very well up here.

I really love Fresh, but I wish it wasn’t so pricey... I’m trying to encourage my friends & family to eat more plant-based, but it’s hard to convince them when it costs more than a meal with meat at another restaurant. 😔

We live around the corner from Fresh and it is definitely our go to restaurant. We have recently decided to try to maintain a vegan diet and having this wonderful option available to us is fantastic. We have never had a meal we didn’t like. Our servers have always seemed friendly and happy. We will definitely be back and back and back.

Came here to celebrate my daughter's (the vegan) birthday. Although I am not vegan I could easily convert based on the flavourful, amazing choices offered at Fresh. As first timers, our service provider was awesome and explained everything thoroughly. I absolutely recommend and can't wait to go back - I hope soon!

We had a great server, she told us about the features, had recommendations about drinks to complement our selections and also suggested we wait a few minutes for happy hour when we were ordering a second beverage. Our food was delicious. The stew was so warm and flavourful and filling. My spouse had the club wrap- hard to believe it is vegan! We finished our night with a decadent piece of chocolate fudge cake. So good! We will be back again.

We all loved the Dragon Broccoli! the shots and juices were super reviving after the excesses of New Year's Eve the banana pancakes were delish but the tofu scramble was nowhere near as good as we make at home -just tofu with nooch. (the tempeh was bitter-tasting but we are not fans of tempeh anyway). i found the americano too bitter but our lovely server brought hot water to help to dilute the taste.
my partner did not care for his breakfast unfortunately, said it was "cold and tasteless". but the rest of us were all happy with our choices :)
love the decor and ambience. and server was so nice and super efficient and helpful.

There were four. of us who met for dinner on Sunday night. The restaurant was only about 1/3 full so there was very little noise and we could hear each talk. The food was excellent with many dishes that convincingly mimic chicken, bacon and beef (although all the food is vegetarian). It’s a very pleasant atmosphere.

As recommended, we had the buffalo cauliflower wings and the onion rings. They were great and the sauces that accompanied them made each dish even better. I had the bacon burger with sweet potato fries and my husband had the seasonal squash soup. I am not sure I would get the burger or the sweet potato fries again -- it was really good, but not outstanding like everything else. If I go again, I will want to try something different. The soup was incredible. We shared carrot cake for desert and it was delicious! We were hungry after walking and biking around Toronto for 6 hours. We are both active and have fairly healthy appetites, and we were not only stuffed after our meal but we took two wings, two onion rings, half a burger, half of our fries, and more than half our cake home! We had a drink each and our bill came to less than $100 before tip. I can't wait to go back again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Everything was done to perfection and was very tasty. The option of the Happy Hour menu made our decision simple - we ordered everything we wanted. Thank you for an excellent meal and a great vegan experience. (I'm not a dedicated vegan, but my dining companion is.)

I’m not a vegan or vegetarian myself but the food here is just so darn good. There are plenty of dishes to choose from that don’t use meat substitutes like tofu, which I love!
