    We celebrated my partner’s birthday here and it did not disappoint. The food was beautifully prepared and presented, with plenty of choice for alternative diets. The service was perfect with our server beating very attentive and willing to give her suggestions on menu options. The space was perfect for a celebratory dinner, with plenty of space and not overcrowded like a lot of restaurants. Our cocktails were excellent too. I would recommend Founder for a special occasion dinner.

    Absolutely loved our experience here! The 6 course chef’s menu was superb, flavours were fantastic and each course was so unique! The server patiently explained each dish to us and by the end of the evening we left with happy full tummies! The cocktails were excellent too. Attention to detail on all the food and drinks was 💯 and I love that their food menu changes EVERYDAY (and cocktails menu, every couple of weeks!) We’ll definitely be back soon!

    While the food was quite delicious. We purchased 2 tickets for the tasting dinner (Friday night) and only one portion of each dish was served. There was no indication on booking anywhere that there was a minimum of 2 people required for the tasting dinner and were very surprised to only be served a single portion of each dish. Some examples: - there should have been 2 eggs in the salad if it were 2 portions, because how would you serve a half egg were customers to only order 1 dinner? - the octopus should have had two pieces if it were meant to be shared. (This was very well cooked though!) - There is no way to cut a beef braised short rib served on the bone in half, so not sure how this could have been a different dish should only one ticket have been purchased? Highly suggest purchasing one tasting dinner for a pair of people and just ordering a single larger dish in restaurant.

    I love Founder and will return. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the atmosphere is amazing. The cocktails are very well done and there is a great range of interesting drinks. The food is delicious, great for sharing and plated so well. It's a great spot for a date or a group - to spend a few hours or have a quick drink and a bit. I highly recommend.

    A really nice bar and small plate restaurant with a great vibe, good sound system and music and an excellent mixologist. They were super busy, busier than expected, but they kept things humming. A really great close alternative to the Ossington food scene which can be a little much at times.

    Absolutely amazing. We sat at the bar & the bartender was super personable even though he was slammed. Food was so good! The green curry fried chicken tasted like we were back in Thailand. Space was loud, but we could easily hear each other at the bar. The staff often turned the volume up or down based on the song. Great attention to detail!

    This food was out of this world. Very creative, well crafted with interesting flavours and execution was top notch. Ambience and decor was warm and cozy. The real miss was service. Let me first say that the staff was nice and welcoming but the actual service, I would call it spastic at best. Overall cadence of someone coming to our table was just strange and all over the place. We were right beside the service area but the staff just wasn’t in tune with where we were at which was weird being so visible from their home base. I’m giving a not recommend only because dining is an entire experience and even though the food was wonderful I just can’t get past the service. It just didn’t make it fully enjoyable.

    This was the most awful experience We had. They are the biggest scammer I have ever seen. They have charged my bill double and also added 20% gratuity for 2 person. They were argumental and disrespectful. I have asked them to give me the bill after Disposing the first one and they gave me a different bill with different numbers. They scammed us by giving us the wrong info and amount and they Didn’t even apologize. They said we did put 2 portion of food in 1 plate which was lie.

    They were severely understaffed. Well, there were a lot of servers but few bartenders so it felt that way. The manager got behind the bar at one point just to help them catch up. My server punched in my drink wrong, once it arrived 20 minutes late, she then forgot what my replacement was ... then it took 20 more minutes to come again. We waited WAY too long for 3 cocktails. The manager felt bad and compt'd our first round (she was lovely and seemed to be the only one checking in on the tables), then our server asked if she could make us "simpler" drinks for the next round, which also took more than 20 minutes to arrive. The server only apologized for the delay once it came time to pay, and watched us do the tip. The bar itself is beautiful and the DJ was great, but the service needs some serious work.

    The table was super narrow, please indicate on the menu that the vegetarian dishes (eggplants and wedge salad for example) come with bacon on top. We didn't know and my mom ended up not being able to eat much because she's a vegetarian.

    The food was so salty. I can not taste anything besides salted. Also the menu has only couple dish. We don’t have a lot of choice. It’s too pricey for the food. It’s not worth at all. The total bill is $200 for a really dry chicken fried, cauliflower, beef and drink. I’m willing to pay $400 at the real fine dining as Akira Back or Chotto Matte but not this one. The lady who served us was kinda not friendly. She kept coming and ask if we still working on my birthday cake :) which made me so uncomfortable. It’s my birthday and I feel like she just wants us out the restaurant asap. When i ask for the bill she immediately took my cake that i i’m finishing up. It’s so rude. So annoyed when someone keeps asking while we having dinner and chatting with friends. I’m not recommended this restaurant for my friend. This is the worst fine dining restaurant I have ever had.

    Came here with 2 other girlfriends for cocktails after dinner one day but ended up ordering their Beef Tartare and Corn Ribs! The Beef Tartare was wowwwww amazing and a generous portion! Their cocktails were really good too and the server was knowledgeable about all the drinks on the menu and gave great recommendations 👍 Can't wait to come back for a dinner one day!
