Had a Sunday lunch at O&B - good was good - had the tuna salad with quinoa. Was delicious and filling. The clam chowder was tasty and warming in a cold day. Enjoyed their yummy chocolate brownie. Would recommend.

For some reason I’ve always wanted to eat here. Then one day it struck me. We used to walk-up to Oliver’s Bakery on Yonge St for brunch every now and again. It was always packed because the food was good and there wasn’t anything like it in the neighbourhood. Perhaps I simply wanted to recapture those memorable moments. Well, the... More

We went here for Winterlicious and it was disappointing. We'd been before and knew about the noise but also expected the great food of previous visits. We were put at a table near the door with a constant parade of people and food service right past us. Our greater disappointment though was the food... it sounded lovely in its description... More

The place was fully packed for a Monday night probably due to winterlicious. The tables are placed closely so it gets to be fairly noisy. Service is good. I would give it a higher rating except the food is mediocre. The price is reasonable even without the winterlicious special. If you run out of ideas in the neighbourhood, this is... More

Enjoyed the winterlicious lunch menu. Serving sizing were just right and didn't feel bloated afterwards. Price was good too. I have a food allergy and was very impressed with the laminated card showing many food allergies and which dishes to avoid. First time I have seen this at a restaurant, and was very pleased I could enjoy my lunch without... More

We went there for the winterlicious. We went to the reception, they said its a 45 minute wait but they will text us when its ready. I had to do some shopping anyways so I didn't mind. The text was a very nice gesture. The food was good. The staff were very kind and helpful. The place was clean .... More

My wife and I met friends for lunch at this Bayview Village location. The annual Winterlicious event was on in Toronto, so the restaurant had a special 3-course menu (appetizer, entree, desert) for $18/person. The restaurant has a pleasant decor and it was quite busy for a mid-week (Wednesday) lunch, but we had a reservation and were seated immediately. The... More

Used to love this place and went there for dinner with family the other day. We all found the food was not as good as before. The soup came out cool instead of hot was the first surprise. Then we order different items such as fish and fried chicken etc but unfortunately we had much better ones at a lower... More

We were greeted well, and shown to a particularly noisy table next to the open kitchen. The server was pleasant and attentive. The food tasted like it was from an assembly line, with no soul. I ordered the brunch shakshuka, with eggs done light. the dish arrived with the eggs totally hard. When I sent it back, it arrived about... More
