    Large patio, nice neighbourhood feel with friendly staff. Good value and something on the menu for everyone. Our small dog was welcome on the patio and they provided water for her. Will be back again soon.

    This is my favourite place to celebrate my birthday. I love it here, and visit as often as time permits. The staff is great. The manager of the front of house staff is usually ok, few interactions. This year, he was chastising a buss boy near our table saying it’s not his job to do his buss job for him in different words. It was VERY rude and made my guests just as equally uncomfortable to hear that interaction. I hope that he can learn to coach and train his staff in a positive way instead of using threatening/intimidating methods *on the floor* to scare them into working better/faster.

    This was a 1pm sitting on a Saturday. It was very quiet inside, so the ambiance did not have the usual vibes we get at the HotHouse. The food was good, but we would have liked to have the option of yoghurt instead of whipping cream on our French Toast and Pancakes.

    My girlfriend receives emails from you on a regular basis so we booked a table for your Mother’s Day dinner buffet, expecting an oyster bar which was advertised with the buffet.. No oysters whatsoever at the buffet and other than the ‘made to order’ pastas, all the other dishes were cold, even though the serving pans were heated . Don’t think there’s anything you can do about that.. Also, your tip option on your debit machines shouldn’t start at 18% .. I know customers can custom their tips but so as to be easy & not have to calculate, perhaps you can start at 15%.? We were given $25 vouchers by the manager which compensated the experience last night so we will definitely go visit you again !:) .

    Well we had a 6pm Dinner reservation and dinner I think started at 5. By the time we sat ordered our wine ALL the seafood was gone no oysters no shrimp. The tent cards advertising the Mothers Day dinner said Prime Rib and it wasn't. It said prime rib and lobster Mac and Cheese and they weren't even together. I didn't really know I was signing up for a buffet. Thought it was partial buffet and Prime Rib. I would not recommend this for a special night out. They had a pasta station right beside the Roast Beef BUT NO lobster MAC!
