Really tasty and creative vegetarian food! Great atmosphere, friendly staff and a really nice patio space. Prices were reasonable too. Would definitely recommend.

The food and service was excellent. My only criticism is that the music was too loud. The staff did turn the sound down at my request.

This is the second time we’ve been to this restaurant and I can confirm that what we hoped was a one off of bad service seems to be the norm. The food was good enough but the fact that our waitress could not have cared less, didn’t bring menus or refill our water canister without us having to physically go to the bar after 20 minutes to ask for it means that I probably won’t give it a 3rd chance.

This was my fifth dining experience at Hello123 and each time I’ve been incredibly pleased. Food is delicious, healthy, affordable and creative. There are a variety of different options (all vegetarian or vegan, I believe) with many elements/ ingredients in each dish creating vibrant textures and flavours. The servers are all so lovely, genuine and accommodating, with a great understanding of the menu.
The $10 cocktail and wine specials are appreciated!
I’ve sat on the patio in warmer months and loved it, inside is hip and the soft lighting in the evenings adds to the ambiance.
My only issue is that the music can be quite loud (but this is expected for Queen st West). I don’t mind but for my mother, it can often be a hindrance to our dining experience. When, in my reservation notes, I requested to be sat at a quiet table they were accommodating of my needs.
Thank you, Hello12(

Not the best Vegan restaurant Toronto has to offer, but some of their dishes were a hit! Like their roasted cauliflower forever appetizer/with pomegranate... and their chocolate avocado mousse was neat.

Seats at the back of the restaurant feel very cramped. The front of the restaurant and patio is where it's at. Loved the food as always and great cocktails too! One of the better plant-based restaurants in the city.

It’s now one of my favourite places to eat the food is so delicious and I had no worries about getting cross contamination with my celiac. I would recommend it to anyone vegan or not. The staff was incredibly nice and always came to the table to pour more water in our glasses and talk to us about how we enjoyed our food. Definitely a 10/10 place

It was a pleasant surprise to find out we could sit outside on your patio to enjoy good food on a summer evening.

Beautiful evening for the patio which is cute and cozy. Excellent recommendations from our server for food and drink. Drink special hibiscus sunrise perfect for warm evening. Nachos are a must-have and were generous enough for 4 of us to share. 2 appetizers (nachos being one) and 2 main course all shared so we could take in all of the incredible flavours. A truly varied flavour palette in each dish. One of the best vegan places we’ve tried.

I had the veggie burger and found it to be rather tasteless. I need to visit the restaurant again and to try another entree before I form an opinion.

We are fans of this restaurant. The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly. My favorite meal is Irene's Massive Breakfast. We love going there for brunch.

In the Montreal location, our wait staff was very accommodating and fun! The food was excellent too, for vegan food! ;) I would definitely recommend the Tempeh sandwich and the broccoli and cauliflower appies! Oh and the cocktails were on point.

Love their sandwiches, dirty fries, and cauliflower. If you want a bowl, go to Rosalinda or Fresh. Service is always awesome, their cocktails are THE BOMB! Hello123 remains a staple and one of our local favourites!

Food and drink (a draft kombucha) was excellent.
Service was okay - our server didn't check in on us very much, and forgot to bring a few things. She was friendly and polite though.
There was a wobble in the table, which is minor, but slightly annoying.

For what it is- a casual dinning spot, Hello123 really does it well. Unlike other vegan spots that seem super casual- this option allows you to have a casual meal in a cooler more inviting setting. The staff was super friendly and not in your face (allowed lots of time to get settled, decide on food menu etc), the service when needed to be- was super efficient!! I think there was even a DJ there...music was not too loud- and you were still able to hear your tablemates.

The food was lovely- I just wish there were a few more options (what was available was amazing and very well priced). Portions were large for a vegan place so that was surprising!

Will definitely be back!

Was my first time there it was pretty good. The waitress was wearing nothing but a bra. And a few of the tables were commenting about it, but whatever, we are there for food not to be fashion police. The sliders were great as were the burrito bowls, would go back.

Horrible service. Absolutely awful. We sat there for ten minutes before anyone came to our table. Ordered a soup as an appetizer and it came AFTER the entree. Waitress never came over to ask how things were or if we needed anything. Never again!

Best vegan food ever. I keep going back to this restaurant each time I am down town. The menu is not big but each item is very delicious and nicely done. I love the beverages as well. The portions are very big and makes you super full.

The food was fantastic! We were seated as soon as the dining room was open, but i felt it was a long time before we were served. When we were, the service was delightful! I did find the music to be very loud. Very great value and great food, would gladly go again.

I've been there twice, made a reservation each time, and waited an hour each time. Reservations are just ploys to sell more drinks at the bar. I'll never return, and will continue to tell my friends how rude this restaurant is.

If you are a plant based whole foods fan this is a great place for you. Obviously some of the food is lightly processed but there are great choices on the menu. Sliders were excellent as was the Kimchi burger, top notch. Lemongrass kombucha was awesome. Only suggestion is to use a more artisan whole grain bun on the burger. Great food highly recommended.

I like everything except the spicy salsa you use. It was not very tasty. And about the music I prefer low and no to noisy. I like having music that allow me to talk.

Thank you

Delicious and creative vegetarian food choices with something for everyone. We had the cauliflower appetizer and the tomatoe and carrot soup both were nicely prepared and artfully presented.

We also enjoyed the chickpea curry and the BimBap....both excellent choices.
