Fabbrica At Thornbury
Waiter was knowledgeable, made good recommendations. Food was very good. Apple fritter dessert was very good and different.
We had a wonderful meal. My salad was outstanding: so finely prepared. My risotto was excellent, salty, of course, as expected, but succulent. I much enjoyed the apple fritters which were just a little underdone so as to be vet toothsome. We’ll be back! Our service was outstanding, too. Thanks.
It’s a little boring when I push the 5 stars repeatedly - but all for good reason! Matthew once again an excellent server, along with Juliana’s managing, (hello red wine crash!) amazing food (never had a bad meal!). Pricey? Of course. The best things in life are!
Been there before and will come back again. Says a lot I think!
Great service and excellent food. What more can you ask for?
If you want a guaranteed home run, come here.
Fabbrica never disappoints. Excellent service, atmosphere and food!
Fantastic meal and atmosphere. The food is delicious. The service was great and overall we had a super evening.
Thank You for your kind review! We are so happy that you had a fantastic time! email@example.com
Food Quality was inconsistent. Some items were great and others no so much. Veal Parm was not so good.
Hello TrevorG thank you for letting us know. Were sorry that you didn't enjoy your Veal Parmesan. I'd be happy to discuss this further with you if you would kindly send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank You again for taking the time to write this. We feel that all reviews are good reviews, because even the negative ones are constructive criticism that we can try to improve. Best, Julianna
Lived up to its reputation. Great place for a Valentine’s Day dinner with hubby...and the kids.
They say you get ripped off on Valentine’s Day so stay home.
Celebrating at Fabbricas in Thornbury was amazing
Food was ok
This was the second visit for my wife and I to Fabbrica. And again our experience was outstanding. The pasta and pizza were delicious, with generous portions. So much so that we took away the leftovers. We like the atmosphere and we are not bothered by the close seating on busy nights. On both occasions, our greeter and server were second to none. A particular shout out to Peter our recent server, his promptness and attention to every detail was awesome. We will definitely return and recommend your restaurant to our friends and neighbors.
Awesome.service, ambiance and food. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening. See you again.
They acknowledged our reason for being there, they recognized we had waited past our reservation time and without us saying anything provided our first drinks free. Overall the food was amazing and the whole experience was very well worth it.
Thank You! We sometimes can't control the time a table takes to dine, but can only estimate. It was our pleasure to correct this wait for your table, as we wanted to ensure that your experience was a fantastic one. We hope to see you soon. Best, Julianna.
Peter our server was absolutely amazing. He made the experience for us outstanding. The food was divine and the atmosphere was comfortable, fun and inviting. Would definitely recommend and eat at Fabricca again and again. Wish I lived closer!
We had a fabulous Dinner at Fabbrica this past Saturday. The food was outstanding and the service was top shelf. We asked to be moved to a quieter area in the restaurant and the hostess couldn't have been more accommodating. (The Table of approximately 12 with 3 very young children were unbearably loud, our reservation was for 8:15 the last thing we expected was screaming kids and worse parents that were oblivious). Great place lots of energy but if you expect a quite evening experience this might not be your first choice.
We dined(four of us) at Fabbrica Thornbury on January 25, 2020 (Saturday evening, special occasion - engagement dinner). Food was terrific (focaccia, meatballs, burrata and Caesar to start, pappardelle, short ribs, chicken and veal as the mains). Front of house needs work: we had to wait to be greeted; we asked for help in selecting wines, and server left to try to get help and returned to our table saying no one was available; sleeve of server made its way into meatballs as dish was served; quality of coffees varied from table to table (servers make the coffees and the quality varies, depending on server's ability to froth the milk, etc). Hopefully these bumps will be worked out.
Hello Martin, Thank You for your lovely comments about the food here at Fabbrica Thornbury, and for also letting us know about your coffees. Reviews such as yours, help in making your next experience even more outstanding. I will personally make sure to brief the Front of House on these issues. Please send me a note at email@example.com to let me know what name your reservation was under. It would help if I was aware of who made your coffees, so that I can help make these more consistent.
I’ve been wanting to try Fabbrica for a while as we just bought a cottage in the area, and I love the Fabbrica in the city. I must say that I was very disappointed. We waited forever for someone to acknowledge us at our table-and it wasn’t busy at all. We almost got up and went to The Grey down the street. The servers all seemed to have zero personality and didn’t seem happy to be there. I had to send my aperol spritz back two times before they got it right. Dinner was okay. I feel like I could have made just as good of a gnocchi dish at home. At the end, we had to ask the server for our bill three times. We didn’t feel satisfied of the turnout of our evening, so we decided to have a drink at The Grey down the street. We immediately regretted our decision to have a mediocre dinner and experience st Fabbrica after we felt the welcoming and fun vibe at The Grey. Fabbrica is missing the mark. You can do SO much better!!!!
Hello Elizabeth, Thank You for your review. We apologize that your experience was mediocre. I can assure that our staff is very happy to be here, and every server has a unique personality. We are glad that your experience at the Grey was fun and welcoming. We always try to support our fellow business owners in our community and know first hand that the staff are very lovely there. We hope you do visit us again to realize your experience was an anomaly. Best firstname.lastname@example.org
This was my first visit and will definitely return. my friend and I shared 4 apps as our dinner. All of them were superb, my favorite was the Tatar, it was exceptional.
The service could not have been better, thank you Derek and Derek
The food and service were great!! The Pasta portion was small for the price but the veggie side was amazing. Our main complaint isn't really to do with the restaurant but the family of four that had two kids (roughly age 10) running around, yelling and treating the restaurant like their personal kitchen. Dad started yelling and swearing at them, got mad, paid for the food and left before half of it came to the table. We asked to be moved but due to other reservations we couldn't. The staff managed it well but they should have been asked to leave or the kids at least told to behave... We'll likely give Fabbrica another visit in the future as I'm sure this bad experience is a rare occasion.
Hello Luke, Thank you for your review. While we respect your situation, your server endeavoured to accommodate. It is difficult to intervene with families especially as, The Human Rights Act of Ontario's "goal is to prevent discrimination and harassment because of race, sex, disability & age... This includes, (public spaces such as) stores & restaurants." In the future, we suggest a later dining time if you wish for less children & we do hope to see you again as you enjoyed the food & service.
The entire experience was wonderful. Everyone was extremely attentive to a food allergy, and every moment of our evening was enjoyed. Thank you!
We were greeted with a warm welcome. Our server, Peter was attentive, informative and fun to spend the evening with and will request his service on our next visit. The food was incredible!! Our party of four truly enjoyed our first dining experience at Fabbrica "North" and look forward to our next visit.
Everything was excellent! Our first time there...hopefully not our last!
We had a great meal we will be back for sure. The escargot pizza was very good it exceeded expectations.
Food, service and ambiance is all 10 stars! Highly recommend the beet salad and the mezzaluna pasta.
Wonderful wood oven pizza and great Caesar salad. Music a little loud, as speaker was over our table, but was turned down when we requested it,
I like Fabbrica and the food but the upstairs room is awkward with little space between tables and in the summer is very annoying with customers going through to the garden - which is fabulous and the best place to eat anywhere in the neighbourhood. Our waiter was good but somewhat abrupt and we did not feel he was particularly friendly. It was not super busy there so no reason for him to be rushed. We will certainly be back however.
Hello Sue, Thank You for your review. We are always able to seat you in another part of the restaurant if you send us a note when booking. Please let us know on your next visit. Please contact me if you wish at email@example.com
The wait staff was very attentive and the food was very good. Happy to return
Great simple menu with something for everyone. New chef has put a nice twist to all the menu items. Nice wine list with great cross section of price ranges.
Thank You for your kind review! Have a happy holiday season! and we look forward to your future visits. firstname.lastname@example.org
We have dined with you several times before and enjoyed our experiences very much. Based on our Friday night dinner, we will very likely not return.
Our server was almost rude - when we asked if you offered any non-alcoholic drinks and as he was walking away he said, any of those on the back. He never asked again.
When the food came he never asked if everything was fine until he took our plates. I commented that it just okay. And he continued to walk away.
I ordered the cannelloni and my husband, the mushroom pizza - which was not just soggy on the bottom, it was wet. We sent back half of it.
Hello Ginny, We hope that you do return, as you have said your previous visits were enjoyable. I have spoken to your server and viewed your bill. I'm sorry for the confusion, your server is a very kind and gentle soul and doesn't have a rude bone in his body. "Any of those on the back", referred to our listed cocktails that can be made without alcohol. We were not aware of your disappointment with your pizza. If so, we would have rectified the matter. Please contact me: email@example.com
Our favourite place to bring visiting guests. The food is always outstanding and the service is excellent. We have dined here several times and every time, it has been a fabulous experience. Many times, When we have been there, Mark has been in dining with family. So nice to see him mingling in his own establishment. Can’t wait to have the beef tenderloin again!!!!
Thank you so much Sharon! We look forward to your future visits with us. best, firstname.lastname@example.org
Amazing meal and service
While I did mention it was sort of a celebration of my wife’s birthday, nothing special was provided. Just a mention of it when we arrived. Perhaps a slice of cake or something would have been appropriate.
Very quaint restaurant! First time visiting the thornbury location and was pleasantly surprised ! Food was delicious, atmosphere was very nice and the waiters were very attentive. Will definitely visit again soon!
We love dining at Fabbrica, they never disappoint!!!
There were a lot of people in the wee room in the back which made it hard to hear at our table for 4. The space heater next to us also was problematic as my coat kept touching it, making us concerned about it becoming a fire hazard. Our server was fabulous, very friendly and knowledgeable about all menu items.
This was my second visit to Fabbrica Thornbury. The warm, cozy, friendly atmosphere and excellent service make this restaurant my favourite in Thornbury The octopus, mussels and fritti where unanimously the best myself and my friends have ever had. The steak was done to perfection and the homemade gnocchi are something everyone should try. Thank you Fabbrica for a 5 star experience with a small town feel.
The lemon tart wasn't THAT great. My mom makes better pastry.
I'll come for pizza next time and sit to watch it in the pizza oven.
Hello Auguat76, Thank you for your comments. I wonder if you would ask your Mom to share her recipe? I would be excited to try it. best email@example.com
Good overall experience. Probably the best fare in the Collingwood/Blue Mountains area. Service was good but at times uneven. Food was generally good - 2 of the 4 mains were very good.
Thank You John. For your lovely review. If you could take a moment and let me know more in detail what was uneven in your service and the food, it would help us to make your next experience even better. please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
