    So unprofessional

    I booked Vagabondo for an important dinner of 10 people on the busiest night of the week. 48 hours prior to my reservation Vagabondo called to confirm. Then less than 24 hours prior to the reservation I was called again and advised that the owner had booked the entire place for a private party and they were cancelling my reservation. The young girl who called had little to say except she was sorry for ruining my plans. Oh, and that if I wanted they could seat my party at 2:30 pm. For dinner?! Um, no. I asked for a call from the owner which never came. Very poor taste. I will never dine at this establishment again. Interesting reading other similar reviews around the web where owner doesn't care or do anything to rectify the situation.

    Corporate Function at Vagabondo

    We had our company summer party at Vagabondo and it was a smash hit!!! The lounge and patio were reserved for company of 150 people. We had their party menu which was a delightful surprise, as most often at other venues the food isn't very good. Everything was fresh and very tasty. Their DJ was really superb, played requests and just kept the tempo going. We LOVED the patio setup with their booth seating and it is recessed from the street. Overall one of the best company parties and can't wait to come back and have dinner at Vagabondo. Thank you to Vagabondo and staff for a great party.

    Great Atmosphere and great food!!!!

    Tried Vagabondo for dinner with another couple and we were impressed!!! Service was spot on, the atmosphere and their patio has got to be the best in the city. Food was fresh and the portions were really big. I had the Linguini Monte Mare, with their rose sauce that was simply delicious. The shrimps were cooked perfect. My wife had the risotto vitello, really good. The veal just was soo tender. Would recommend to anyone and have already made plans to go back.

    Best Patio Ever!!!

    Went to Vagabondo after work on Thursday after hearing rave reviews from others. We loved their patio, the booth seating was really nice. They had a DJ spinning music and the atmosphere was amazing. We shared appetizers and had drinks. The calamari was really good, as well as the coconut shrimps. A lot of different cocktails to choose from. Overall this was an amazing time and we can't wait to go back. Stayed 4 hours on their patio!!!!

    Food was fine. Bit annoyed to be seated in the back in the area with no ambiance despite having booked a table and the restaurant not being full. Also had to wait for food a long time because they had "a lot of takeout orders..." Nothing special. Wouldn't go back in a hurry.

    The service was great and the food excellent. Good portions and we did not have to wait too long for our meal. Complementary warm fresh bread with side of butter was very good. Will definitely go back for a business meeting. They have an express lane where you can pick up same delicious food to take back with you to the office....next visit.

    We really enjoyed our meal. There were so many choices on the menu that made it hard to decide which to try so we sampled a couple apps and mains to get a good taste. All the food was delicious and made us feel like we were in Italy again! The only suggestion would be that the serving sizes were too large and we still took a lot of food home which covered another meal the next day. I must mention the flavours that came through in the food as well as our wonderful service we received. It wasn't a busy night but we made it fun and enjoyable for them too! We will definitely return.

    Really enjoyed our experience at Vagabondo. Attentive and friendly server. Food was piping hot and delicious and bigger portions than I expected. Wine was overpriced but don't know any restaurant in downtown Toronto where it isn't. We would recommend.

    We dined here for Summerlicious and were not disappointed. We paid $28 for a 3 course meal and some of the other restaurants I had visited for Summerlicious had very small servings but it seemed like Vagabondo had normal size portions. There was so much food I had to take some home.

    I was there on a beautiful sunny day. We had to sit inside and for me the atmosphere just seemed dark with so much black leather compared to the lovely sunny patio, which was full. Just saying. Our server was super pleasant, patient and knowledgable and the food was delicious. I'm coming back soon to have a dish with that rose pasta sauce my friend was having. Also enjoyed one of the best lightest tiramisu I've ever had Yumm

    For summerlicious i understand it's a Small amount. However i felt the salad being Only Tomatoes cherry should've had more greens like a real salad. As well My husband had bruschetta it was good but i felt 2 pieces of bruschetta is less than average 3 or 4. Overall the food was good and I even gave more than 20% tip of 8.00 for the server since the service was good and it wasn't busy that day due to being in a Financial district area on a Sunday that would be a slower day for them. THe restaurant is worth dining and returning. Very nice ambience.

    We were there for Summerlicious - very pleased with everything! We sat on the lovely patio and enjoyed great food with happy, attentive service. We particularly enjoyed the gnocchi, the roast chicken and he calamari fritti. We also ordered a bruschetta pizza as an extra appetizer which was delicious - a nice thin crust and fresh tomatoes. A bonus is the restaurant's location -- right across the street from the newly updated Berczy park with its delightful dog fountain (you have to see it!). We were also surprised with a New Orleans style wedding making its way through the park. Really fun being a tourist in our own city.

    Our server is not friendly or doesn't care. She looks after the other customers nicely and attentively. We waited for our desserts for a long time and just put them on our table and leave. We don't have spoons or forks with our ice cream and cake!!!! We have to ask for it and waited for a couple of minutes. They hand them to us without even apology. We don't recommend this restaurant. Food is just okay.
