Located just east of Keele in the restaurant-competitive Junction, I was keen to try this place. The interior is a rustic industrial chic, keeping on trend. It was a quiet Wednesday night with only a few parties, and I was visiting with a friend. They have a happy hour that my friend and I took... read more

I stopped here on a Bites & Sights food walking tour of the Junction a few weeks ago. The place is cool looking... But that's about it in my opinion. We sampled a few things including some sort of fritter with seafood in it (I passed) a pulled pork slider that was more bun than it was meat and a... More

My first time and I keep dreaming to go there again.... Meal was amazing and service was excellent. I was very excited to try this restaurant based on the online menu.We did not feel rushed which can ruin a dinner out.

This is a totally charming little spot. The atmosphere is perfect. Service was excellent. We did not feel rushed which can ruin a dinner out. The staff was very attentive and knew exactly when to arrive. The meal was amazing bit of the south. I had the chicken and waffles with the bourbon maple syrup. It was cooked to perfection... More

...but that's about it. We were with a group of 4 couples and I was very excited to try this restaurant based on the online menu. My wife and I ordered a variety of oysters to start. They arrived quickly but none of the other dinner guests received their appetizers. The food was served in shifts which left everyone staring... More

Just saying the word brunch makes me smile. Roux really makes me smile. It's a bright spot on a rather sad part of the street. This part of the junction has yet to be gentrified, there are a few hints that it is coming, but with a place like this, progress is not far behind. Don't expect huge servings of... More

We were looking forward to patronizing Roux, hoping it would be our new local go-to. Not off to a great start as the table service was very slow: 20 minutes to get our drinks, 40 minutes for food and 45 minutes for cutlery to eat said food. We had heard their chicken and waffles were good, and were excited to... More

Great southern food that I've never tried before. Probably the only place in Toronto you can get alligator and grits! Delicious oysters and a very stylish interior. Perfect place to bring anyone, it's slightly pricey, but nothing crazy, and for what you get its a downright steal! Would definitely go back!

Went to Roux to celebrate my birthday. We've recently moved into the area and wanted to try one of the many restaurants in the Junction. Roux was wonderful. Server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Roux is smaller but cozy and love the décor. We started with the ceviche appie which hubby and I shared; great flavours and texture.... More

Lovely restaurant with attentive service. Recommend on the Dinner Menu the Scallops, the Yardbird and the Roux burger. The Junction neighborhood makes a nice setting and relatively easy to park or get to by streetcar.
