This location is in a high-end mall, Bayview Village, in North York, Ontario. The name Oliver & Bonacini tends to connote high-end food in Toronto, however the only thing high-end about this spot is its service. Servers and front of house staff are polite and prompt. The food, however - is another story. I have eaten here several times (as... More

I've been here half dozen times for lunch and don't know why I go back. Know I will not again. The table might have nice white linen clothes but that's not what makes a great restaurant - it's the food. Also asked 2x not to sit by the open doorway. Not enough variety for guests to find much needed vegetables.... More

I’ve eaten at four Oliver & Bonacini locations and find that the food quality varies with the chef in charge. This time five of us dined with three ordering grilled calamari as one of their appetizers. All three came out different. One was overly burnt, another had pesto on it, and the third did not taste very appetizing. It is... More

Went there with a party of 5 for lunch the other day. Great location, nice looking restaurant but very few Vegan options on the menu or available unfortunately. Staff were helpful and friendly, professional and courteous.

Had a fabulous lunch yesterday. I think it was the best breast of chicken club sandwich I have ever had. It also came with a small side salad. It was a pre-Christmas get together with some dear friends. I highly recommend this restaurant. Excellent and courteous service.

The atmosphere was wonderful, and our server made my son's 21st birthday celebration an absolute joy. He provided solid meal opinions, was on the ball from the moment we got there to the moment we left. While the food portions were a bit small for the price (but hey, it IS Bayview Village after all), we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Really great classics and comfort food...from salade nicoise to fish and chips! Service is always great as the servers are knowledgeable about the menu. The room is not pretentious and it can be awfully noisy when busy. Not inexpensive but great value for quality. I have been for business and socially, for lunch and for dinner...always very good.

We came here on a Friday for lunch for 4 people. The restaurant was quite busy but we were seated quickly and service was prompt. There was a mix of business people, families, and shoppers. I ordered the cold cider (non-alcoholic) and it was delicious, a nice holiday treat. As my main, I had the Formaggio pizza (3 types of... More

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.
