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.

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
