Service was extremely exceptional food was great
Accommodating. Good food. Prompt service. Good ambience. Certainly expect to return in future
One of the best for Sunday brunch. Something for everyone!
Good food great service
We were greeted upon entering & it was very welcoming. Got seated in a booth which I had requested online...so glad. To top it off we had an amazing waiter called Liam, very warm, funny, pleasant & quick. Service was awesome!
This place used to be so good. It was “the restaurant” I’d choose to impress important guests.
Now, everything looks and tastes like it was prepared from a frozen mix.
Dinner before the Leaf game
The Hothouse is a great standby for pre theatre dinners. Efficient service, extensive menu and good quality food. We were early enough in the evening to snag a window table with views over Front Street.
I've been coming to the Hot House for years. It never disappoints.
We had a wonderful time, great service, and highly recommend.
Was fantastic like always . Many thanks
I have been coming to Hothouse for many years and often bring friends there. Always a pleasant experience in every way.
Nice round table for eight. Great to have vegan options - even cake. Draught beer selection was good. Service was attentive.
Great service, beautiful environment and delicious food.
Food wasn’t what we expected
I felt like I had wondered into a tourist restaurant. I guess being on Front Street I should have thought better than to make this reservation. The food was mediocre at best. Our server was great and attentive and the $8 martinis were pretty good. But with so many choices in Toronto, I don't need to go back to Hothouse again.
I have been to the hothouse many times and have never had such bad service. The food was fantastic. Our server was extremely slow and it was not busy enough for that to be an excuse. He forgot to order 2 salad entrees and it took him 15 minutes to come back to the table after all of our other entrees were delivered for us to tell him the salads hadn’t shown up yet. It took almost 30 minutes from when the hot entrees were delivered to when the salad entrees arrived. There was no apology, no offer to take care of the bill for these salads and no manager to come over to check on us. He did not bring fresh bread to the table, I had to ask after my meal arrived, my water was never replenished. I will go again but if the service is the same, I will not return.
Salmon add on for a salad is a ridiculous $14. Highest I’ve seen at a restaurant downtown. My friend had the jambalaya and there was barely any rice. I will pass on hot house for lunches going forward but still enjoy their brunch on Sundays
Looked after my request for a round table in a quieter area.Great service and great food.
Well done. Thank you.
Hot House is a great place to meet friends for a catch up.. easy to talk , food was tasty but not fancy . Waiter was very experienced and gave us time to chat and order at our own pace.. Bottle of wine half price on Tuesday!
Excellent experience at the Sunday brunch. We visited from the states! Friends won’t stop raving about the food here!
It was amazing!!! I came here for brunch with my two friends at 9:15 (we came 30 minutes early) and were seated anyways. It was amazing.
The beer menu was completely useless because they had none of the first 3 I ordered. Updating the menu might be in order. A conference had just walked in without any reservations so it was quite loud but that isn’t Hot House’s fault.
The awesome service and awesome food helped overcome those issues. I’ve been here before and would happily return again.
Below average food quality.
The service and ambience was great. Food was decent. Unfortunately my poke dish didn't seem fresh and was overly salt.
Missed our appetizers.
Great service. Our waiter was excellent. The food was very tasty and I will come back next time in Toronto
Food was not great. Had the super salad but it wasn’t great. Mush on spinach
Saturday brunch was not good...food presentation and quality not impressive, I expected more from
A place with such nice ambiance...disappointed
And not coming back. The food looked like it was thrown on the plate....
Have dined at HOTHOUSE many times over the past 10 years and have always enjoyed everything about the restaurant.
Have had many happy events at Hothouse. We had great time. Was very busy so servers very busy but most pleasant. Thanks for having turkey special.
This is the second time we've had thankgiving dinner at Hot House.
Booking was easy.
Our table was ready on time. The service was pleasant and attentive .
Our dinners were delivered quickly and piping hot . Food quality was excellent.
All in all, a very nice dining experience.
I would definitely come back to Hot House on future trips to Toronto.
Went there on Thanksgiving sunday for their thanksgiving special; the turkey entree was very tasty and BIG, the seafood chowder wasn’t the typical cream base soup but more like vegetable fish soup which was very tasty too; the dessert was apple crisp, not bad taste but could be hotter, it served with ice cream but the oats and apples were just lukewarm.. the restaurant was packed with two buses of guests showed up at once so it’s noisy but they are well staffed so everything went quickly. We asked for a table at a quiet corner using OpenTable, they delivered exactly that, very pleased.. will go again for sure...
Food was tasty and nicely presented. But if you have any food allergies/restrictions, beware. I have Celiac and my husband is dairy-free. The waiter was less than helpful when we asked what would be safe - he simply referred us to the menu icons. I ordered the jerk cauliflower as it was labeled gluten free. However I always ask if food would be safe for me, he answered yes. So when it arrived I realized I didn't confirm the fryer, if it was gluten free. When I asked (before I ate it, thank goodness) the waiter said it was not a dedicated fryer and would not be safe. I take full responsibility for my food choices, but in a big city and big restaurant I expected a higher standard upfront. My husband wasn't so lucky - something he ate gave him a reaction.
Overall good. The sweet potato fries were a bit over done.
First time to this restaurant. Will definitely be returning.
Food was great as was the friendly service.
Atmosphere is very pleasant.
Good for vegetarians, and meat lovers alike.
I’m Soo glad I managed to find this place, I had a great experience and can’t wait to go back. Awesome Sunday brunch!
Reservations were easy. Food was amazing. Service was friendly and welcoming.
It was a great experience. Food amazing as always.
Disappointed with the cheesecake looks like you changed the supplier or something. It was much better before.
Other than that service and food were amazing.
