Great service!

I came for lunch and the service was very fast and made sure we got out in time to make it back to the office. The portions are large and tastes delicious!

Great food!!

Came to Mirage on my lunch yesterday and made it part of my to do list to write a review about them online!! Pleasantly surprised! Our waitress was super friendly, the service was on the ball, exceptional, and the food was WOW! I ordered the chicken breast baguette and substituted my salad for a soup, highly recommend, was amazing! My co-worker ordered another sandwich...cant remember what kind, but she loved hers as well! Can guarantee this is our new lunch and after work spot to go!

the place is okay. nothing special. didn't like the mixed greens

the restaurant is very nice. nothing special. didn't like the mixed greens at all. my pasta was excellent. loved the rose sauce. the manager was very friendly. our server was pretty friendly however wore way too much makeup and didn't have her hair tied up. industry standard, all servers should have hair tied up especially if serving food. overall ranking was okay, nothing really stood out

There must have been a change of ownership here as i notice the customer service is improving. There are candlelights during the evening and their entrees are really good. The staff is much better than the other location in my opinion. Good place for some late night eats. Make sure u get their waffles. On a side note...the waitresses are really cute ;)

this has been my go to dessert place for the last 10 years. Great place to go on a first date or to catch with family. Ambience is nice. I miss the old ambience with roman cathedral like ceiling and paintings. However the fancier glitzier chandelier is not bad. They can sure work on their drink menu a bit …

I've just discovered this place recently and have been back several times. The first time I went I ordered one of their pasta dishes. It was so delicious! The portions were huge too!! I could hardly finish, and took it home to have for lunch the next day. Definitely worth my money :) My friends and I also held …

Whenever I've come to this location I haven't had to wait that long for seating and the waitresses aren't pushy or come bother you all the time - they leave you alone and are pretty friendly. Every time I go there I always order the roast beef sandwich and they always make it amazing every time. I love …

Friendly service, but terrible food.

Uninspiring potato bites. Packet mix (terribly mixed - still had the lumps in it) Hollandaise sauce.

Toasted English Muffins that weren't properly toasted. Not sure how you can mess that up.

I noticed another table had under cooked bacon. Their Bagel is just a bun with poppy seeds, so it's not a real bagel.

I really enjoyed my 4 visits to Cafe Mirage on a recent holiday in Toronto. They're Chocolate Eruption cake (not on the menu) is to die for and their breakfasts are great. It's a very relaxed atmosphere and yes, the servers do tend to chat it up from time to time but once you assert that you're in a hurry or would like their attention they were right there to assist us in having a pleasant... more

We were here in March 2011 with a group and celebrating my wife's birthday. The girls serving us were terrific – polite and very accommodating to the group’s needs. In fact one of them took our pictures as we were mingling and didn’t have a change to take each others pictures. I’ve never come across someone volunteering to do that at a restaurant. The food was quite good. I had the smoked... more

Met a colleague here yesterday afternoon. Perhaps I just happened to go at the right time, but I didn't have any of the substandard service I've read about from other Yelpers. I was the first to arrive, and since there really wasn't anyone there, I was seated immediately. The server came to take my order, and I got a water while I waited.The decor seemed a tad cheesy, with the fake Venetian... more

I've only been here once and thought it would be a cool little place to grab dessert or a beverage. Cafe Mirage was packed the Friday night I ventured in, and instantly thought that I had found a great place to unwind over a beer. Unfortunately, the service was terrible. I had to wait forever to order another drink and was never proactively asked if I wanted anything else. It took so long for... more

I'm trying to think of things that distinguishes this place from the Boston Pizza next door, and only one thing comes to mind.'No carpet on the walls'Another wobbly table restaurant I managed to find. All the decor were black, brown, and dreadful. I think its trying to emulate a gentleman's social club ambiance.

Mmmm...lunch was over 4 hours ago and I still can't get over how good my wrap was.  I ordered the Mediterranean Wrap with some skepticism: Beans in a non-burrito wrap situation?  Now I see why this was a "signature dish."  The wrap was perfectly grilled and had a nice toasty flavour.  It was totally rich and delicious and not what I was expecting.  My salad was a bit overdressed, but that's my... more

Because this place is close to my humble abode, and it's one of the few non-cookie cutter coffe places (ie. Second Cup, Sbux, Tims), I continue to go. A glutton for punishment I must be. The service, is ALWAYS, without fail, shockingly poor. It does not matter what time of day I go, how many or few people are eating, who's serving me - the service is garbage. Slow, inattentive, slow,... more

Went to their Richmond Hill location (East Beaver Creek plaza) early December after it was recently opened about a month prior. Considering the ridiculous amount of business other restaurants in the plaza get, my guess is that word hadn't caught on yet with this place cause it was EMPTY on a Friday night. The Mocha Crunch cake was great - meringue & mousse were light, and LOTS of almonds. Their... more

We had 20 people that day.  I was really surprised that they even allowed a bunch of us there (although, we did have reservations).  Service was really great considering that we had 20+ yapping young adults who almost sat there for about an hour trying to decide what to get.  We even got separate bills.I ordered the Supercrema di Gianduja: New York style cheesecake coated with Nutella spread,... more

Our server (like the others and manager) was too busy chatting with friends to take our order, bring our beverages or our bill. The cake was reasonably good, likely because it was not made in house. A total waste of time.

used to go there at least once a month, until one day, while waiting to be seated, we saw the staff use a rag on the counters, then same rag to wipe the cake knife between cakes. after that we also saw a Guy wipe his hands on his pants before handling food. never going again!

I was at cafe mirage this evening and it was very very busy. Despite the chaos the food was great, the service amazing and our server was one of the most friendliest I had come across at this location. She introduced herself as our server in a timely and friendly manner. It was not until towards the end that I wanted to compliment her to her manager that I found out she is the manager.

I've been coming to mirage for a while now - I enjoy the place the atmosphere and for the most part the servers are really great. They have definitely improved by a mile. The food portions are relatively large and the food's always good. I usually go for deserts but when I am in for dinner it's always enjoyable. Great job guys. Keep up the good work!

I'd have to say this is one of the worst restaurant's i've ever been to. I was there yesterday and waited exactly 22minutes for my drink and about 35minuntes for my food and the place wasn't even busy, and might i add the food was cold old and just plan horrible. 2 big thumbs down

The Cafe Mirage menu is very large as well as the portion sizes. Looks classy and pricey but it really is not (pricey). It is a great date place to go. The staff lack so much customer service that you and your date will be left alone for the entire night even with 7 servers on the floor. 4841 Yonge Street location has a better atmosphere than 117 Eglinton location. I have been to both locations... more

Ok...So living at Yonge/Sheppard, I used to go to this place A LOT (even in the days when it was Symposium). The desserts were great (esp. the avocado shake).A few months back, we get there in the evening, and the place is full, so we stand at the entrance waiting for a table. We look right towards the front kitchen (desserts), and here's what we see:guy wipes the counter with a rag, then wipes... more

From the outside this cafe appears to be very nondescript, when you enter through the side door however a trendy lounge unfolds. Rows of low contemporary couches and cozy table settings fill this multilevel cafe and lend for a casual environment, where one can grab a coffee or a full entree. It is unusual to see a "cafe" that serves such a wide variety of coffees, desserts and entrees. Their... more

I've been to this place, but the one in Scarborough.It's more of a late night eatery/chill joint for the young crowd.They have everything under the sun on their menu from pizza, pastries, cakes, etc.They have lounge couches and tables set up.

This newly renovated (within the year) Cafe Mirage got a much needed face lift! It looks pretty hip now, but would it live up to it's new kicked up image? That was the question my friend, when I went today for lunch.... If nothing else the staff are extremely friendly and personable! It was pretty empty when we went (apparently Monday's are the worst day of the week).  I ordered a veggie burger... more
