Grasshopper Restaurant - The Junction
Unbelievably this restaurant took my reservation WHILE CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS. No, just no.
Booked this place with extremely high expectations as I and a few friends looked far and wide for a solid vegan-friendly restaurant for a few hours to meet before a friend left the city ONLY to arrive AFTER being sent a confirmation email of our reservation to a "Closed for renevations" sign outside of the door. It would have been nice to be notified or called to address this to customers but nope. Just a sour taste, a complete waste of time and solid, well-deserved 1-star review.
Burgers were burnt. Mac and cheese was bland but the kids liked it. Thai salad was good. Appetizers were good. I've been here before and I think the kitchen staff was overloaded. It showed in the uneven output. I'll still go back. This is the first time out of four visits the food was underwhelming.
The service and food were excellent!
I really enjoyed this restaurant and I am not vegan. The food was very tasty, the service very good, and I would definitely go again. Loved the simple but trendy decor.
