I am generally a big fan of O&B and have been there for a number of brunches, lunches and dinners - graduations, bridal showers, retirement parties etc. - although I have only ever frequented the Yonge and Front location. My husband and I joined a friend's birthday dinner at O&B Bayview Village a few weeks ago. He ordered the lamb... More

Unfortunately the adequate food quality was offset by the poor service. Not only was the waiter inattentive and forgetful, he was outright rude. I would not recommend group business meals at this venue.

In the food court area of the mall at Bayview and Sheppard. Upscale interior, comfortable seating, and quick to be seated. Actual service was a bit slow and the person taking the order never came back. The food is delivered by someone else. Food quality was good however, but the requested hot sauce was not provided. Overall good but a... More

Recently went to this restaurant with a friend for lunch on Saturday. Excellent atmosphere, excellent food and very courteous wait staff that allowed us to enjoy the entire afternoon to catch up.

Taking a picky eater out for dinner is a challenge. Finally hit on a winner. Super service from Andrew and three delicious meals, smoked chicken pasta, seared salmon with lentils and squash and the picky eater loved the fish and chips (light batter, nice portion). Highly recommend the dessert platter to share. The cheesecake was out of this world.

I can always count on warm and inviting service and a interesting menu with specials each day. Last time, for me the bowl of mushroom soup was just what I needed - so full of flavour, real comfort food.

Had brunch here early on a Sunday morning. We were greeted by a very friendly waitress who looked after us very well except she completely forgot my main and had to be reminded some 10 minutes after the other three of us had received their mains. Prices were reasonable and the food and drinks very good. Overall - not quite... More

OK. I am finally a happy man that O & B brought back their mushroom soup at lunch and brunch again. It is my favourite item on the menu. This is also one of my favourite brunch restaurants in Toronto. The food is always fresh, tasty and imaginative. Our server Leslie was delightful and made our day. I have tried... More

We were taken here as guests along with our young granddaughter. Although our meals took a long time coming (for which we received apologies from the wait staff), they were excellent. Particularly impressive was the very special attention and service that the staff gave to our granddaughter, which enabled her to have a great time in this "adult" restaurant.
