I've been to this place twice now and both times, the food has blown me away. I had never heard of the place before and first visited in August of 2013. I ordered the schnitzel and it was to die for. Huge portions! My most recent visit was May 12th for lunch with co-workers. I ordered the turkey BLT. Was... More

Was not expecting the food to be as good as it was with a name like the "Green Eggplant," but its so good I have been there 3 times in a month.

On visiting my daughter who recently moved to the Beaches Area we walked a few blocks and decided to have lunch at the Green Eggplant. Not a bad choice for a quick but slightly pricey lunch. We each had a bowl of French Onion soup and 1 drink each, a glass of Rose and a cocktail. Total bill $34.98. Pus... More

While you might have to wait for a table on the weekends but it is worth it. The breakfast choices are unique. The French toast and the good old bacon and eggs are great. Highly recommend it.

Our "usual" favourite restaurant was closed today ... so, we decided to give The Green Eggplant a whirl. Nice casual atmosphere , fresh bread with 3 assorted spreads served while waiting for our meal. Extremely large salad potions , nice dressing , however the grilled chicken was over cooked !!! Somewhat difficult to cut & even more difficult to chew.... More

We have visited this restaurant a number of times, and it used to be the place we chose when we are in the Beach area. Unfortunately, the quality seems to have deteriorated. On a recent visit, we had the Beef Goulash where the beef mostly consisted of fat. The Greek salad was OK but offered a poor value at $14.00.... More

We just love this place! It's warm, casual, and welcoming, with friendly service, a nice vibe and great food. The portions are fairly big, so there's good value for the money as well. Plus, they bring fresh bread and three delicious dips as a starter at no charge! Their menu is a good size, so we find that there's something... More
