    My friends and I have eaten at this most friendly Restaurant many times. The food is freshly made and excellent and the variety for this Mediterranean Restaurant is great. Something for everyone.

    Robert is an amazing host and the food gets more fabulous every time we go to Aviv! Excellent service and totally accommodating of the needs of my vegan daughter and allergic husband.

    The food was amazing and they were extremely accommodating of my family's allergies. My mom said it was the best Mother's Day dinner we've ever had. My only complaint is that sound travels and echos in the space, and sometimes the celebrations at the other tables were overwhelming (thus the 4* for atmosphere). I would eat there again in a heartbeat!

    the service was very friendly. the gnocci meal was absolutely delicious: the gnocci tasted homemade and the sauce was fantastic! i also enjoyed the mint in the salad. quite often when i go out to eat i am disappointed by the quality of the food. i was pleasantly surprised by how tasty and healthy the meal was, and i will recommend aviv to others (already have!). too bad we forgot to show our theatre tickets for a discount, but the quality of food made up for it!

    There was four of us and we all loved our lunch. I had the burger with added mushrooms and bacon. So delicious I for sure would recommend as the best tasting burger I enjoyed in a long time. The others had pizzas and my wife had the potato gnocchi. Same response delicious. Warm welcoming as we entered and very helpful and accommodating staff. Warm and friendly atmosphere. Thank you you made our outing complete.

    Our dinners were the lamb shank, the veggie tagine, the chicken kebabs and we shared the beet/kale salad. We were all very happy with the flavours, sides, portion sizes, and service. Warm, welcoming and attentive staff.

    Very warm reception for our reservation group of 14 people. Well organized service and excellent menu selections. Glasses of wine were a little pricey. Complimentary and very tasty birthday dessert! I’ll be back to try their lunch menu.

    My wife and I had a wonderful dinner prior to a show. The service was comfortable, helpful but (thankfully) not in a mushy way favoured by some restaurants. The food was exceptional, Lamb shank and pork tenderloin were the two entres and they were excellent. I don't live in the Annex, but will definitely make a trip to dine again at Aviv.

    Aviv is our favourite restaurant for pre-theatre dinners. Their pizzas are always outstanding....the best in town, in my opinion.....and so is their beet salad, along with so many other delicious items on their menu. We go there at least once a month and really enjoy the food, the ambience, the free corkage nights, the free parking after 5 pm, and especially the warm, welcoming, personal service from the owner and from all the staff there. We are so glad to see Aviv doing really well, as we want to keep going there for a long time!

    I would not return here, nor would I recommend this restaurant to anyone. The food was either tasteless or a weird concoction of flavours that did not go well together. Overall it was a poor experience, and the restaurant just seems like a hot mess. We made a reservation for 7:30pm on a Thursday. My party arrived at different times, the earliest being at 7:15pm, and she was told that she would be seated in one minute. The restaurant was packed, and the friend that arrived early still hadn’t been seated by the time the rest of us had arrived - we kept being told it would be one minute. Multiple groups that came after us were seated before us, which was frustrating, as we had made sure to make reservations, but they weren't honoured. We didn't get seated until around 8:00pm, which only happened because my friend literally had to stand by a table that was getting ready to leave, and take it before anyone else could. There were five of us, and four chose the Winterlicious menu, and one choose to get pizza. For apps we had the risotto balls - which were tasteless, and the fattoush salad with halloumi - which ended up being a bunch of lettuce with two small, semi cold, overly salty pieces of halloumi. I've had halloumi plenty of times and love it, but you could tell this wasn't one of quality. We sent back the halloumi and got the burrata cheese plate - that was better but it was still just okay. For mains we got the gnocchi, chicken kebab, and quinoa pilaf – all of which were okay, and the pizza - which was a cooked crust with cheese melted on top, and raw mushrooms, spinach, and red onions just thrown on top. Nothing was good that anyone would want to eat it again. Then for dessert, we had the flourless chocolate cake - which was dry and dense, the banana bread pudding - which was not at all a pudding, but a gooey rectangle of I don't know what, and a pie/crumble of some kind, which was mediocre. During our wait, we were told that "we would be taken care of", we weren't sure what that meant, but we hoped maybe they'd just take care of the birthday girl's meal or something like that. No one finished their desserts, we all took a bite or two and left it. Then a waitress came out with a plate of desserts for the birthday girl, while we appreciated the thought, it was a waste, because it was the exact same desserts we ordered and didn't eat. She also gave us juice in champagne glasses (because three people in our party didn't drink) and then a splash of champagne in two glasses for us that did drink. Although it was just two gulps, we all agreed that it was probably the tastiest thing we had all night – processed sugary, store bought juice. When our bill came around, all they did was take off the pizza which was maybe $15. After we paid and were heading out, the waiter who said he would "take care of us" stopped us and told us that he took 20% off our bill. If that had happened, then we would have been very happy and appreciative, but we told him that wasn't the case. So he went back and checked, and he said that since his colleague had given us free (crappy) desserts and juice with a splash of champagne, that they couldn't take off the 20%. It would have been nice if they had communicated with each other during their service, so that would could have gotten the 20% off instead, considering that we didn't eat majority of the food we ordered. This place was not good, and it was not a fun way to spend a birthday. It was a complete waste of time and money.

    At Aviv, we enjoyed a lovely dinner, with delicious wine, absolutely scrumptious food and warm, friendly service. The portion sizes were generous, especially considering it was Winterlicious! Can't wait to come back again and again!
