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 very good, tasty and generous portions. Service could be better; nobody to greet you at the entrance, we had to stop one of the few waiters to ask where we could sit. Very few servers for such a busy place.

The service was a bit slower than usual, and one appetizer was forgotten. Everyone’s main dishes were great, except one pasta dish that was undercooked and one that was very oily. The desserts were amazing!

Food was good, service was good considering there was a large party that night so the staff was very busy. Because ofthe party the music was very loud and it made talking difficult.

Food was excellent. Service was TERRIBLE. We had to ask for our apps (as they only served 2 of our 15, and after waiting 15min we had to say something), and then had to ask for our mains AND deserts. One of the busboys actually said "we're really busy - you'll have to wait" when I asked how much longer our apps would be. Not an acceptable answer

I came with a friend for summerlicious lunch. We came around 2.45pm for a late lunch so the restaurant was very quiet and empty as we past the lunch peak hours. There was no one in the front to acknowledge us when we entered through the main door but as we kept walking inside towards the dining, as soon as I saw one of the waitress, she immediately said hi, greeted us and asked us where we would prefer sitting, inside or the patio. I really liked that she asked instead of assuming. Overall, we really enjoyed the quiet, elegant, dining experience. All the staff were very friendly. We loved our meal especially the mouth watering saucy rigatoni bolognese and the spicy risotto primavera and ofcourse the dessert, chocolate truffle cake. Atmosphere, service and food were all great. We will definitely come back or recommend this place to other people. Thank you.

Unfortunately the service was very slow and the meat was not cooked as asked. Those that ordered steaks or red meats and asked for medium rare received over cooked dinners. The overall service was very slow and repeatedly the server got the drink requests incorrect.

Unfortunately we did not get to try even one bite. We arrived at our reservation and were promptly seated, Yay... then it went downhill. We were celebrating both of our birthdays and were looking for a great experience. Unfortunately after being seated we waiting for over 15 minutes (no exaggeration) and no one came to our table. I made eye contact with two servers in hopes they would come greet us and take a drink order, but nothing. We got up and walked out and no one said anything even though we passed many employees. Severely disappointed and a waste of our time.

Atmosphere feels a little dated, but the incredibly delicious and authentic Italian fare, matched with impeccable service made up for it. We were so happy with our food. Definitely making this a regular stop when we are in the neighbourhood.

We got there and it wasn’t until I asked for a server to take our order, that someone stopped at our table. Servers were walking by us all the time and none would stop, We waited for about 20 minutes before a waiter came to us after I had asked for a server, not a good first impression, not sure we’ll be back. The food though was good.

There were two tables of about 6 people around us, where they were so extremely loud, and only drinking (not eating). This ruined the evening for my fiancé and I, and my suggestions would be to seat people who are not eating in the lounge or bar area.
