My wife, mother and I were in the Beaches visiting old haunts. Walking from Beech Avenue westerly direction, we started looking for a place to have an early dinner. We walked past quite a few restaurants that we either knew and liked, or a few that almost perked our interest, until we saw the Green Eggplant. As soon as my... More

Honestly in the top three ribeyes I have had in Toronto. I consistently go here for ribeye. My other favourite dish is the Kung Pao stirfry. Free bread and salad with your entree. Great for kids.

We followed the advice of others on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed in this cool lunch stop. We had taken the tram in from Queen's Quay and walked along the beaches portion of Queen Street before heading down to the beaches themselves. Looking for a lunch spot, we came across the Green Eggplant and decided to try it out after... More

I love sitting down to a good meal (or two, or three!) at this restaurant every summer. They start you up with an app with three dips and some bread. The three dips are yummo! You've got: some hummus, some sauteed eggplant salsa, and some baba ganoush. I usually order either the Vegetarian Portobello Mushroom Burger or the Vegetarian Garden... More

My sister lives in the east end of Toronto (The Beach) and every time our family gets together, we end up going to The Green Eggplant. There is always a lineup out the door, but the line moves fast. Service is always top notch and the quality of food never disappoints. You are greeted instantly and they provide you fresh... More

One of my favorite places to sit and enjoy food, friends and atmosphere is this restaurant. It is a 'must' for east-enders or for that matter is worth the trip to the beaches to browse the shops, walk the boardwalk and take a load off your weary feet at the Green Eggplant restaurant. I have tried several dishes, but the... More

Went here for breakfast and it was soooo delicious!!! You receive tons of food and fresh fruit. It has to be the best french toast I have EVER eaten in my life!!! We really liked the decor of exposed brick and stamped tin ceilings. It was very cozy and inviting. I would most certainly eat here again.

Have been here for brunch and dinner many times and just love every time I go there! The atmosphere is warm, fresh and welcoming and the service and staff are lovely. For brunch you just have to try the french toast, heaven. For dinner, well I don't think I've not loved everything I've tried! Favorites tho are the lamb, any... More

I specially like sea food selection. ONLY downside the exhaust system need to be upgraded, so one will not endup smelling food after exit.

The complimentary bread and dips (including eggplant) they start you with could be a meal in itself. I can't recall an entrée I haven't been happy with. The paella is a favorite. Portions are generous. Service is quick. They lose one star for the noise. When everything has to be said in a loud voice, you know this isn't a... More
