I love Hothouse but unfortunately they were far too busy to attend to us this visit, making my guests quite unhappy. The food was good as always, but we were seated on a table that was far too small for us and due to the rush of customers our server was a little pre-occupied.
Delicious turkey meatloaf and seafood puttanesca dinner. Server was confused about sides but very attentive. Will definitely come back.
Excellent menu, food and service. Whatever the occasion it is always a good experience.
Held my department's Christmas Lunch at the HotHouse. The food was good, the waiter attentive however 1 person in our party of 10 lunch order was not served until well after the entire party had finished eating and only after constant following up. Apparently the kitchen staff had "messed up" - their words not mine - because they were really busy. The manager, Adam, came over after I told the waiter to credit the missing meal. I understand things happened but the manager came across with a condescending attitude when attempting to deal with our situation and that added insult to injury. Some feedback for Adam - In a customer service industry a humble attitude can go a long way.
Loved donner at your restaurant and we had not realized but on Wednesdays, your bottles of wine are 1/2 price. What a bonus! The appetizers and the mains that we enjoyed were delicious. No room for dessert. We will surely have dinner at your establishment when we are next in Toronto. Thanks for your good efforts. Bob
Good location to get together with friends. Food is great. A good selection for everyone.
The servers were very friendly and courteous. We had to catch a show and needed to be served faster. We received very prompt service. Upon finishing the appetizers, our main courses arrived. Food was delicious. Service was excellent. Great ambiance. We had a great time.
Great place to go before a game or event - different selections than normal restaurants make it fun to try new dishes :)
Always enjoy the food and drinks here. I had made a reservation however the hostess seemed a little confused as to where to put us. When I asked for a booth or somewhere at the side so it was quieter, she said it was too busy. I would have thought by making a reservation the restaurant would plan out prior to my arrival where we were going to sit. I have never encountered this issue before when I have reserved here.
We always enjoy dinner at Hothouse. The noise level is minimal so we can talk to each other. The food and service were excellent.
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....
