We needed a place to eat before meeting family and decided to stop when we noticed Roux. We really liked decor and exposed kitchen atmosphere. The restaurant is set up for a single person eating/having a drink at the bar or tables of up to four. Food was good, staff was friendly and price was what one would expect.

First time to roux and loved it. Small restaurant which I really like. Reasonable priced, great food atmosphere and service. Had the pulled pork pouting which it to die for and the fried chicken and waffles YUMMMMM. Will definitely return and recommend.

We ate here for a Saturday brunch and the food was good. The restaurant is not large and has a very laid-back, homey vibe to it. We'd ordered the hash with eggs and the yardbird (fried chicken) and waffle. The hash was actually prepared like a pancake and it was delicious. The fried chicken and waffle were also very nice...

I have been here numerous time and I love it more and more - it's not a big place however the staff are always willing to try and fit you in. I have tried a lot of the menu items and have not been disappointed yet - it's got a southern vibe but its not really New Orleans - and... More

This place is incredible. I have tried almost everything on the menu and can honestly say it is all delicious. The staff are incredible. I hosted a bachelorette dinner here last summer and the staff made us feel so wonderful. GREAT T.O restaurant!

Located in that "interesting" stretch of Dundas east of Keele, Roux is a newish addition to the emerging foodie haven in the Junction. Southern French Creole food is a good idea, and the attractive reno of this space is very inviting. You should not accept this invitation! Porkbelly & Catfish arrives with something that is not porkbelly but rather a... More

My friends and I went here for brunch on Saturday, and I can honestly say that we sampled most of the items on the brunch menu. Most people really enjoyed their meals, but some were certainly left wanting more. For example, I had the southern breakfast, which I found to be delicious. There were lots of different tastes and flavours... More

I was hungover and very hungry which may explain why I enjoyed this place so much. With that being said, I got breakfast hash and it is something I dream of. Crispy, creamy, amazing and the mushroom sauce on top of poached eggs makes me cry tears of joy when I think about it. Every plate looks picture perfect.

I don't do creole often so this was a nice change. The food was good. No complaints there. The space is beautiful and the service was good (though we were there on a Wednesday night and it wasn't very busy). I'm glad we went, however, there are a few restaurants in the surrounding area that I would choose to go... More

Description
Offering up an atmosphere that's both fun and relaxing, this cozy neighborhood spot is the perfect place for any occasion. The chic and stylish décor is only outdone by a menu that has something for everyone. With food that is rooted in contemporary French-American technique, Roux offers classic dishes with Chef Derrick Markland's own twists. Comfort foods like hushpuppies and gumbo are complemented by more adventurous favorites like catfish and jambalaya, with daily specials that are sure to please. Though the open kitchen is the focal point with its up-close dining experience and custom industrial barstools, the bar is not to be ignored. With its large oyster bed and selection of bourbons, it's a great spot for a night cap. During the summer there's nothing better than having a pint from one of Toronto's local breweries and people watching on the patio. With its location in the steadily growing Junction neighborhood, Roux is a place for everyone to feel at home.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
