Excellent place with a wonderful atmosphere. I decided to brave the cold Toronto winter to go to this place twice in 1 month. This is the place where I had oysters for the first time & it was amazing. I am hooked, even ordered them the second time around. Both times it was in a group of 10+ people and... More

We took my husband to Roux for the first time to celebrate his birthday last night! We were missing New Orleans and Roux brought us right back to the French Quarter! Funky little place! Such friendly and welcoming staff! In fact, they went above and beyond! There's this old tradition in New Orleans that you pin a dollar on your... More

Met a group of friends for dinner in our historic High Park/Humberside/Junction district and was pleasantly surprised at this little corner bistro in this still-trying-to-gentrify neighbourhood. A down south Cajun venue would seem to be difficult to pull off up here but they put a canuck spin on the menu which appears to be successful. Two of us started out... More

Came here on the Sunday of the long weekend and it was quiet which was perfect. Sat at a great table. Great service, they even accommodated my gluten-free friend. I had the pulled pork eggs benny - it was so flavourful and devine. My friends had the sausage and grits, and nothing was left on their plates! Saw a family... More

I gave been going to Roux since the Junction Eatery days. The food is good. Good quality and presentation. I do not like the new "trying to hard to be cool" attitude of Roux. The Junction is a FAMILY neighbourhood. It bothers me that Roux does not have a high chair for my kid. I would never dream of bringing... More

We loved The Junction Eatery, knew that you didn't go if you were in a hurry, but always worth the wait. We went for brunch on the weekend- for the last time. A 45 minute wait for our meal, no decaf coffee available and subtle changes to the menu that would not bring us back. Dry cornbread, hard scones, the... More

Roux is the new and improved version of The Junction Eatery. It's the same chef with an 'up-scaled decor' and menu. The food was always an excellent representation of Cajun / New Orleans-style cooking, however now the menu has been expanded and refined. However, their waitstaff needs some training. They are eager to please, and quite friendly, however, at least... More

It's a neighbourhood thing. Important to go so it doesn't disappear. Only open three weeks so still working a few aspects out but overall a definite I like, had a great time, good for friends. Good choice of oysters. Shrimp cakes a little in the breast side. Expected more flavour. Beef was a little tough and stringy but great flavour.... More

I have driven by this place so many times, and it has a great vibe to it. The name has changed over the past year, but as far as I know, the food is still as amazing as everyone told me it would be. They have great classics with a twist. They have daily specials and some fantastic home made... More
