The food was quite pricey but it was okay. The main problem was the lack of space. I sat on the bench while my date sat across from me in a chair. In order to use the restroom i had to stick my butt in the face of another patron. I am not even a large person! Though the servers... More

We came to celebrate the birthday of a good friend and we wanted a vegan restaurant. I had visited Live at another time for lunch and it was practically empty. However at this visit it was full and we had to wait for a table. It was well worth the wait. Each of our menu choices was delicious. Food was... More

I must admit that this place is a little expensive but well worth the money! While many other vegan/Veg restaurant shy away from the raw food preparation LIVE dives right in with delicious dishes. The location has a relaxed feel and the very modern looking. Definitely a great first date, special date and any date place! You just have to... More

Live is a small vegan restaurant, but not small in their choices and flavors they offer. Food is outstanding! Lots of healthy and delicious choices.

Who knew that raw food could be so pricey ? Yes it's good but $25 for a salad ? Come on folks this is good vegan but it sure ain't haute cuisine. Are they riding a trend wave or is it yet another case of style over substance ? The food is good but it's not groundbreaking & misses the... More

Hi there, We're sorry you were disappointed. I'm not sure what you had but our salads range from $8 to $15 maximum. Im sure you know we're all organic at the restaurants and our retail products are certified organic (some of the dishes contain our products) and all are made from scratch...nothing is processed which all costs more as you...

We had a very good experience at this place. We were hoping to find a place on the patio, but since it was full they asked us to take a table inside. Within a few minutes however a table on the patio opened up and we were allowed to take it still. The all vegetarian menu does not have very... More

Just had a Big Bowl Salad and encountered more than a few pieces of decomposing greens which I piled beside my bowl. Server never checked on me so I didn't say anything until I was leaving. Server's response was she will let the kitchen know, period; no apology, offer to take something off the bill, nothing. If I'm paying $20... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
