They were able to accommodate my service dog and go above and beyond to make us feel welcome. They placed us AWAY from the dog friendly area (reduce distractions), in a shady area so she could stay cool, brought her water, and were very friendly with us (I’ve experienced places where they make it seem like a burden to accommodate us but HotHouse was fantastic and did not make us feel like a burden at all). The food was good, the ambience was good, but the service was fantastic!!
Lovely patio and space during 2020 summer season. Good Neighbourhood spot with excellent service. Menu needs some updating and better variety. Food was ok but not inspiring. Had the Thai Bowl and it was bland. No tamarind?
Would still recommend spot. Pizza’s are good. Service great and seating and spacing excellent.
Great food, excellent Mojitos and amazingly clean!! All servers wore masks, menus are scanned onto your phones and utensils individually wrapped. Each table and seat wiped down after every customer.
For a superfood salad priced at $19, I expected more than two grapes and two pieces of broccoli. 99% lettuce. Not filling and over priced.
This was our first restaurant meal after the lockdown ended. Servers wore masks and checked your health on entry. That's normal these days. The server was attentive without being obtrusive, had a good sense of humour and great personality. The meals were good as usual at the Hot House, but great when shared with friends after so long apart. The tables are well spaced to keep distance so everything was quieter and more intimate with your friends.
Service was great!
Patio area is already open and it is very nice. Food and service was excellent. I recommend this restaurant. Happy to continue supporting our businesses in the city.
Great food options! Loved the half priced wine special on Tuesdays.
Restaurant pandemic measures implemented made our first summer patio experience very welcoming, comfortable, and enjoyable. Will definitely return and recommend to family and friends.
Excellent food and customer service. All the staff were very friendly and handled the extra safety precautions needed at this time.
Our server was pleasant, relaxed, professional and a pleasure to deal with. We had a delicious, I rushed dinner before our event. Thank you Arturo!
Scotty is the absolute best. The food and service is wonderful but the main reason I love going is because of wonderful Scotty!
Over the years I must’ve eaten at the Hot House nearly 100 times. It is always excellent with maybe two instances the entire time that the food wasn’t really excellent. Of late the calamari is not very good but everything else is superb. The hot house is our go to for many many events. We’re so lucky to have it in the neighborhood.
Our waiter, Rob was very attentive and nice. The food options were good.
Took 2 kids and hubby to Sunday brunch. It was $140 for all 4 of us. There was a decent selection of food and it all tasted delicious. We stuffed ourselves silly. Our server, Rob, was great and attentive. The 2 guys making the omelettes were extremely polite as well. We went at a good time, 09h30, as the restaurant was empty. When we left at 11h00, it was really starting to fill in and I was so glad I reserved for an early start. We literally had the place to ourselves. I feel it's extremely over-priced and will not be returning because of that. But if you don't care what you pay for breakfast, it's a great place to eat!
The wait staff was exemplary and quality of food was excellent. Great value for money.
HOT HOUSE is the best restaurant ever i have dined at all four in party
say same a place to dine and enjoy thank you Barbara Ken Jestin
It seemed like the portion sizes were smaller this time. Still good food though
the lamb shank was tasty and tender. the waiter was wonderful. You could tell he really enjoyed his job and then he said he did! It was wonderful to take the bottle of wine home. I drink red wine and rarely enjoy white but most of my friends like white so one really can't order a bottle for yourself unless the restaurant lets you take it home.
The service was amazing the restaurant was relaxing and inviting and the food was beyond words. Very good experience for my first time at the hot house. Will definitely be back and will definitely refer too many friends
Their used to be way more options for brunch. Not impressed
Will be making this my new favorite place to dine in Toronto. The buffet was amazing and service was refreshing.
Everything was good. Reservations easy to put in through Open Table. Food, staff, all good. I would like to see some mashed potatoes on the buffet to go with the roast.
I would say too many people in one place, but really good staff, nice music and delicious food, not incredible, but good.
Excellent service. Great value. Wonderful memory!
We have been to the HH many times the past. Always great food and service.
Our server set the tone for the best lunch
This was my second visit for their buffet. I tried the brunch buffet, 2 years ago and loved it. This time we tried the Wednesday night buffet, and found the food very mediocre. Bland. Reasonable selection though. Unlikely to go back.
Always a good place for catching up with friends and enjoying a variety of great food (I like to try something different every time I go to the Hot House. We don't feel we are being rushed when we are there and the restaurant is very accommodating.
Everything was just right, except the wait for our order. We were famished by the time the food came.
This place changed hands a while back and ever since this has actually been a favourite. We have a large family and a mom that is a great cook and a bit of a food snob, and this seems to work for everyone. There is a great selection (especially vegetarian dishes) and everything so far has been delicious. Very decent wine selection (bonus for Tuesday nights where most wine is 1/2 off), and service is always excellent. Great if you’re looking for a place that always has room and can usually accommodate a larger family/group. I was there to reconnect with friends and I didn’t feel rushed or bothered - they kept our wine glasses filled!
Bottom line: give it a try! if you haven’t been in a while, give it a second chance.
A little disappointed very small breakfast menu - nothing for kids. Inflexible on substitutions on items. My son had a raw burger they didn’t even try and make it right - would have expected them to take it off bill.
Great food and outstanding value. The best desert offering at any buffet.
Terrible venue. No one gave us details on buffet location or available options. Omelette bar had poor service, lack of filling choices and omelette was very small. No dairy alternative for coffee. Very expensive given such limited / poor food options.
The food was good and lots of variety. It was a bit noisy but manageable. I do think that it is unacceptable that with the price of the buffet they charge for coffee and tea.
I have been here a few times when in town. Good quality food at reasonable prices and the menu has variety so you should find something you like no matter what your tastes are
Our favourite restaurant. Always good food and service.
We were seated early but not rushed as we were waiting for one more person to arrive.
As it was a birthday celebration we wanted a relaxed atmosphere, good food and wine and good service and I am happy to say we got exactly that as well as excellent value for money.
We came back after just having our holiday party there. Love the food and the service! Looking forward to trying brunch soon!
Capable competent service and very good food. Just what we've some to expect of the Hothouse
