Für Rendezvous geeignet
Mit seiner vergnüglichen und entspannten Atmosphäre ist dieser gemütliche Ort in der Nachbarschaft perfekt für jeden Anlass. Die schicke und elegante Einrichtung wird nur durch das Menü, in dem für jeden etwas dabei ist, übertroffen. Das Roux serviert nach moderner französisch-amerikanischer Technik zubereitete klassische Gerichte mit dem gewissen Etwas von Koch Derrick Markland. Gutbürgerliche Küche wie Hushpuppies (kleine frittierte Bälle mit Maismehl) und Gumbo (würziges Eintopfgericht) werden ergänzt durch Klassiker wie Katfisch und Jambalaya mit Tagesgerichten, die jeden glücklich machen. Neben der offenen Küche, die im Mittelpunkt des kulinarischen Erlebnisses zum Anfassen steht, sollten auch die individuellen Barhocker der Bar nicht außer Acht gelassen werden. Mit seinem großen Austernbett und einer Auswahl an Bourbons ist sie ein großartiger Ort für einen Absacker. Im Sommer gibt es nichts Besseres als ein Glas regionales, in Toronto gebrautes Bier zu trinken und die Menschen von der Terrasse aus zu beobachten. Mit seiner Lage in dieser stetig wachsenden Kreuzung ist das Roux ein Ort, an dem sich jeder zu Hause fühlen kann.

Good food but service was mediocre. Place was empty and server basically ignored us after we finished our food. We were a table of 6 girls catching up and would likely have had another couple mimosas if the server bothered to come back. Kind of pricy for brunch

The food was really delicious but the service was a tad slow. We had to get the servers attention more than a few times. My friends had to ask for beverages and water before the server even had a chance of offering it first, so they had to wait to grab her attention. She was nice though. Other than that, I would recommend this place because the food is so flavorful with creole style taste. Also, we had a cake and they provided a candle for a birthday and it was really yummy - carrot cake. Thanks a bunch!

My hubby and I have been to Roux many times. It's very trendy, and the food is to die for. This last time the service was a bit lackluster, but food was amazing as always! Great date night

We were very disappointed in the quality of the food served. The daily special omelette was oddly formed and lacking in flavour. It was served with salad greens that included a significant number of pieces that were not just wilted, but blackened and rotting. The brisket hash was very salty. I ate it out of hunger and courtesy to the group I was with, but felt unwell for the rest of the day.
The other diners enjoyed their chicken and waffles and the pulled pork benny went un-finished. I didn't get to ask the person who ordered it why. I did notice that they also left a lot of salad on their plate and ate only one of the eggs.
The ambiance may be referred to as energetic, but our group found it unpleasantly noisy and making conversation almost impossible.
We have been to Roux many times. Our experience on the weekend was the worst. We are unlikely to return.

Good things come to those who wait! Most of the complaints I've read about Roux online have been related to service, and while I have no idea how anyone could find their servers rude - they're quite friendly - it takes a while to get your food. That's a good thing, though, because that means they've taken the time and care needed to make exceptional meals! Go in prepared to have a drink and chat, be patient, and when the food comes, I promise you'll be happy you waited.

Food is always great but the main issue was how long it took to get the food, and one of the dishes we ordered wasn’t made so we had to wait even longer.

Opentable has asked for a “Roux”view of our time at this restaurant. So, here it goes.

As this was our third visit, my wife and I had previously come for a dinner and a brunch, this time we invited a friend to join us.

First, the restaurant is great for a relaxed, New Orleans inspired, laidback meal with friends. So, we came again for brunch.

To keep with the Louisiana vibe, I ordered the chicken and waffles, my wife had the brisket hash and our friend chose the salmon popover. For me, the chicken was a-maz-ing! I mean, seriously great. Unfortunately, the waffles were a bit dry and crumbly. My wife felt her meal was not what she hoped. She found the brisket to be less than generous and apparently it lacked a starch. She had to order toast. She also found the pastry basket had items that weren’t fully thawed, never mind freshly baked. Our friend, on the other hand, really enjoyed her meal.

Having said all that, we’d go back. We loved our server, she was hilarious and attentive. The atmosphere is comfy and friendly and for the most part the food was good. And in our two previous visits we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Our hope is that this was just a blip.

We bailed, the place was a dump! After our nice hostess seated us, a server came along and asked her why she seated a “walk-in”. She told her that we had a reservation. This banter ensued while she had people’s food in her hands and in front of us. The place looked dirty. We got up and left.

Being from the States and particularly the South, I had to try this place. I may have set my expectations a bit too high, but that could be my “southerness“ speaking and bias. I ordered the jambalaya and it was just OK to me. I’ve had better. It had a kick in spices, but not necessarily the right flavors (seasonings) - it was missing something. However, my friend and I do appreciate the cook’s hospitality and making us feel welcomed with complimentary gumbos and desserts for our birthdays. There was only one server and it seemed he was spread a bit thin - serving our party along with 4-5 tables alone. Probably wouldn’t go back, but I would recommend for the ambiance.

Overall our dinner was very good. The oysters were excellent, very fresh! We tried the muscles also, very good. Three different enters between four of us( two had the Flatiron steak) Shrimp and Grits, awesome! Catfish and pork belly, amazing flavour. Loved the smokiness of the pork belly. I would definitely recommend it. Flatiron steak was very good withe the greens, though the frits were way too salty. Judging by the number of people around us that ordered the Chicken with waffle, I think it is a local favourite. I would love to go back and try it. Definitely some where I would return to. Thank you!

So glad we tried Roux! nice to change it up and try the East side of Keele along Dundas West.
Warm and cozy vibe.
Good drink options, a variety of craft is always appreciated. Decent whiskey too.
Food is 6 out of 5. It really is good. Menu has three more items I want to try, so I will be back.
Server/s were friendly and patient with good knowledge of drinks.
See you again!

Overall great experience!

Made a reservation for 9pm for Valentines dinner. We sat at the bar until 9:40 before we were finally seated. The food was good when it came but took a very long time, service wasn’t great or accommodating. Drinks were comp’d to make up for some of the bad experience at least. May have been an off night for the staff but we were not impressed.

Service took a long time , a dozen of oysters for app took close to an hour to be served and had to be served 2 different trips (separate plates).

I got the smoked platter and the meat tastes like they’ve reheated from frozen meat. The ribs was hard and tough - not at all what ribs should be. Got a side dish of collard greens and it tastes like frozen bag reheated.

Overall think this place is overrated and not worth the price.

My sister and I went there to celebrate my birthday. We had a reservation for 8:30, as I was unable to book anything earlier than that through the online reservation site, although when we arrived, there were already some empty tables, so I wasn’t sure why we couldn’t have booked a table for a little earlier. However, the service was excellent, as was the food. The portions were just the right size for me.. generous, but not so much that I couldn’t finish it. I had catfish with collard greens, potato rosti and slaw, and it was absolutely delicious. My sister had the yardbird, which was seasoned fried chicken, and a potato mash. She said that was also excellent. My main complaint was that, unbeknownst to us, the kitchen closed at 9:30, so when we asked for the dessert menu and coffee, we were told the kitchen was closed, and we couldn’t have anything else to follow. The server was very apologetic, however, I feel we should have been told that in advance, so we could have ordered earlier. It would have been nice to have been able to order a dessert for my birthday. Aside from that, though, I would recommend Roux as a lovely, cozy neighbourhood place to go for a delicious Cajun/Creole meal.

Food was mediocre - I had the catfish with collard greens and potato rosti. I just didn't find it that tasty. I did enjoy the mac and cheese balls, cornbread and beignets, which we all split. Service was good and price was average. Just not enough for me to return.

Very friendly service and delicious Creole main dishes. At my table of 6 we had catfish, both with pork belly and roasted, and both were excellent. Others had the mackerel special, again very good, and the lamb shank special -- very tasty. Fun cocktails, especially the spicy southern Caesar, served with a shrimp fritter and a sausage as edible garnish! On the down side, the trio southern sampler appetizer was merely average, and the dessert selection was limited to carrot cake and a very small creme brulee. Only truly disappointing thing was the noise level -- on a Friday evening, it was too loud for 6 people to have a good conversation. Restaurant is long and narrow and the tables are very close to the open kitchen and bar, where conversation reached yelling level. All dishes made from scratch so our meals took a little longer to reach us but worth the wait. On a final note, our waiter Eduardo was attentive, helpful in explaining the dishes and fun. Definitely recommended but we'd go back on a weeknight when the noise level might be lower.

Great neighborhood feel, lively but not loud, open kitchen, savoury southern specialties. Always get a good meal here. House smoked pork belly and catfish was great. Mussels & frites, with a light cream sauce, are my favorite app. Warm bagne for desert.
