We are pleased to announce that renovations of our restaurant are now complete! Join us at our newly refreshed restaurant for lunch, dinner or weekend brunch. <br /><br />Oliver & Bonacini Café Grill, Bayview Village is the first of O&B's casual dining restaurants created by renowned restaurateurs Peter Oliver and Michael Bonacini. This large urban space feels very downtown despite its North Toronto location. A gleaming open kitchen extends into the airy dining room, featuring washed tin ceilings, leather banquettes and dramatic and distinctive light fixtures. The menu offers something for everyone, including fresh, made-from-scratch soups, salads, sandwiches, pastas and fire-roasted pizzas. <br />

"I hosted a Sunday brunch for 4 ladies (ranging in age from 3 to 60+) and as I don't live in the Bayview Village neighbourhood my options felt limited. The service was great (as it always is at O&B restaurants) and our 11 am seating was packed. it is nice to see families, birthday parties, hungover partiers, neighbourhood residents, couples, etc. all out and enjoying this spot. As a downtowner I don't get to this O&B 'outpost' often, but I will definitely recommend it to my friends living in the neighbourhood. Until I am back I will continue enjoying O&B Canteen @ TIFF Bell Lightbox and O&B Grill on Front Street."

We do local cuisine. Anchoring the heart of Rosedale, earth Rosedale is a unique dining experience with something for everyone.<br /><br />Our Chef's seasonal menu is inspired by the freshest local ingredients and offers dishes with simple elegance. Our wood-fired oven adds a level of flavour and comfort to the bistro-styled menu.<br /><br />The large front lounge area will please the most discerning Rosedale crowd with over a dozen wines by the glass. The wine list also features a wide assortment of local wines.<br /><br />earth Rosedale is open for dinner Tuesday to Sunday. You can also join us for our famous weekend brunch both Saturday and Sunday. We have patio dining in our courtyard and front patios. Closed Mondays.<br /><br />We are located at Yonge and Roxborough, just north of Rosedale subway and south of the Summerhill LCBO.<br /><br />Think global. Eat Local. <br />

"This is my new favourite weekend brunch spot in Toronto. They take reservations (most other Toronto restaurants don't), there wasn't one screaming kid to be seen/heard, the service is lovely from start to finish and the room is comfortable and quiet (music was played at a perfect level), conversation was easy. The two friends I took to brunch had never been to Earth Rosedale and both agreed we would be back again (and again). The brunch menu is not exhaustive, but there is something for everyone, whether they are craving a classic breakfast dish or a lunch. What I like most about Earth Rosedale - and Globe - is that they care! Every time I have been treated as a valued guest. Thank you for a lovely brunch!"

Welcome to FOUR where we offer a balanced approach to guilt-free dining. We pride ourselves in our commitment to healthful dining by offering all of our dishes under 650 calories; however, our approach to nutrition and wellness is so much more than just calories and carbohydrates - it really is about the kind of food that makes you feel great about what you eat. In other words, we want to help you put the positive into your body so that you can radiate that positive energy right back by looking and feeling fabulous.

"Four is perfect for lunch, whether it is a business, personal or date lunch. The food is creative, well prepared and presented, and best of all - the portions are a 'normal size' (read: not oversized), as well as healthy and lowish on the caloric scale (if that matters to you). The service is even better than the food. Although the room is decorated in a minimalist style (concrete floors, bare walls, dim lighting) it is on the quiet side, even when filled with a chatty lunch time crowd. Four is a really great, quiet getaway restaurant with fair prices in the downtown financial core."

Portuguese-bent cuisine in the true center of downtown Toronto. Featuring fresh fish and seafood such as lobster, tiger shrimp, and octopus. The rustic Mediterranean atmosphere charms everyone. Private dining facilities are also available.

"... and that is something I rarely say about Toronto restaurants. The quality of the food is fabulous. The menu is exhaustive and I am always amazed at the number of additional 'specials' (seasonal, creative, tempting). The portion sizes are very generous and the corn bread is the best in town. The service is understated and elegant from the moment you arrive and throughout the table service.
I have been to Adega many times over the past 3 or so years and I am always impressed with the food and service. My friends and family all agree. It is my go-to restaurant for birthday and holiday celebrations, but it is great any time.
I will probably never make it through the entire menu, but I'm going to have a great time trying!"
