Serve yourself buffet style restaurant where you pay by weight. All vegetarian and vegan options. Great choices and desserts.

We eat here about once a month. Usually with the children who love the dessert variety. The food is always so tasty and we feel healthy after leaving. The restaurant has really good karma

Fantastic for vegetarians and vegans but I love it ,too. It is always exciting to see what is on the buffet. Staff is so helpful. Happy to answer all my questions. Makes me wonder why I eat meat :-) All my choices were "over the top" delicious.

Lots of vegetarian dishes but many are vegan including desserts. Love this place! Lots of organic too. Price is based upon weight of food. Buffet style-get only what you really want! Friendly staff, clean, and deliciously prepared foods.

I must say since my last review and visit, how pleasantly surprised I was in the buffet! I have found that The Table has really "stepped up their game" presenting really flavourful, hearty, well labelled food. It was a comforting meal for my friend and I. The shepherd's pie really was filled with flavour, lots of vegetables, of course very... More

Dishes always look good, and I want to say that I enjoy eating here, but every time I visit I leave feeling dissatisfied. Trying to put my finger on what it is exactly.... Main dishes are too starchy(potato) and/or grain based, for those of us who cannot tolerate grains. Likewise with soy, if this is problematic. I have a hard... More

My husband frequent this place once or twice a month and we always come out satisfied and impressed with the food. They seem to change the dishes on the buffet quite often so we're never bored. They serve a variety of dishes: casseroles, salads, lasagna, and of course those incredible tofu fritters with onion chutney. I heard someone say that... More

We used The Table to cater hor d'oeuvres for a holiday event. We had about 40 people, and Reza was very helpful coming up with a menu that had great options and was affordable. Although not everyone at the event was vegetarian, everyone enjoyed the food and we received many compliments. We picked the food up a few hours before... More

The Table is for vegetarians. The decor is plain but functional. The food is self-serve cafeteria style and you pay by weight. It is well frequented and moderately priced although not cheap if you are a big eater. It is handy to the GCTC and other attractions nearby.

Thank Barry B
