Been here many times and never disappointed. Staff and Owner are very friendly and accomodating. The food is always fresh, hot (if necessary) with an excellent presentation. Food is always full of flavour. Very reasonable prices for what you get. For those who say it is expensive, speaking as an Entrepreneur, there's rent to pay and a lot of expenses... More

I have been to this place a few times and love it, the food is very good, breakfast, lunch and dinner were all good,there are lots of choices. The price is reasonable, the restaurant is always full when i go there, my only issue is finding parking at times, the staff ate very friendly.

We crashed there a Sunday night expecting a nice place to dine. Even if the decoration/atmosphere was ok, the service was awful and the food very poor. We had 2 waiters, the first one waited 5 good minutes to let us seat even if the restaurant was actually empty. The second one could barely speak English and took whatever HE... More

So this place is a bit pricey... but totally worth it! There's something on the menu for everyone. A lot of options that are well made. They offer a delicious combinations of breads and dips to start (for free!) and their sweet potato fries are some of the best I've ever had!

I dined in Green Eggplant with my friends from Toronto. The place has many wards, but for those who know what the Italian cuisine is can't be recognized as real Italian. Good place, but nothing special. Rather for everyday dinner that for special occasions.

We were excited to have an early Christmas celebration with family and friends at the Green Eggplant. Our reservation was immediately acknowledged and we were seated at a nice table near the front of the restaurant. Boy, the place was packed...always a good sign in my books! Our hostess and server were just fine...not over the top...not standoffish either. The... More

Sunday November 9, 2014 - I have dined at the Green Eggplant with my girlfriends for many years. It has always been one of our favorite 'get-together' places. We have always had good service and excellent food. However, this morning my son and future daughter-in-law took a friend visiting them from Florida for a great dining experience and when their...

We often visit Toronto and a visit to The Green Eggplant is always a must. The service, ambience and food are just so good. On arrival you are met with very smiley waitress who soon finds a table for you. You generally have to wait 5/10 mins as the restaurant is always so busy (always a good sign). Once seated... More

Green Eggplant is a staple in the Toronto Beaches community. It's always reasonably busy and often pretty packed. The service is hit and miss, never rude but not always overly friendly or attentive. The food is good, the menu offers a good variety so there something for everyone. Nothing that I've eaten there really stand it as being exceptional, no... More
