Love the House. I'll be back as soon as it is open again. SO sorry that things are so difficult for all staff.
Our party of 4 had a wonderful lunch …. food and service was ver good
Good luck through the lock down part 2. Your staff are fabulous!
My first visit to Hothouse was a pleasant visit! I love the ambiance, it is such a family friendly restaurant and the food was delicious. The portion is quiet big for me, not to worry about this they do have takeout box on site :) Our server always check on our table to ensure we're doing okay and she came to our table not too long after we were seated. Will come back for sure next time to try the dessert menu!
Great location, gorgeous ambiance, and delicious food. The Sunday brunch mimosa was amazing!
The cod fish was delicious! I loveeeeeeeed our table at the corner and very private! Server was amazing!!! Truly loved the restaurant!
The food, and service were excellent. My fiancé and I really got to enjoy our dinner together. Price was reasonable for what you were getting. Also everything in the restaurant was very clean from what I could see. This wasn't my first time coming, and definitely won't be my last.
It was delicious
Food subpar and very expensive. Mexe platter was served on a huge plate with very little in the way of actual food. Very disappointing.
Large dining area, lots of space, good service, excellent jambalaya and lamb shanks. Within walking distance of Distillery Market which is nice! Would go back.
The gnocchi was so delicious, and you definitely get your monies worth for the muscles. Would 100% go back,
best seafood pasta. Going back for a second dinner tomorrow
My Husband and have been going to Hot House since it first opened and we live in the neighborhood. Last night December 28 was a big disappointment. We were seated at a nice table. We both ordered the Tomato Bisque soup which was my usual. Then my husband ordered the Jambalaya his favorite there. This time the portion size appeared to be a small and there was no Rice and hardly any sausage. My calamari came but the sauce they gave me was mayonnaise which gave no flavor at all. Then we noticed a bug flying around our table. It ended up floating in my beer. When the waiter came he offered to bring me another one but by then we had finished eating and just wanted to leave. When I got home I discovered they had charged us $9.00 for the tomato bisque and on line it said $8.00. I feel they should have comped our beer and they did charge us for the large size Jambalaya. We left disappointed and not impressed
Great food, great service -- our favourite Christmas Eve dining spot, after St. James Christmas Ever service.
Awesome service and food!
Great Experience! Food was really good and staff was very friendly. 10/10 would recommend.
The Hot House is consistent in it's quality food and good service.
We waited nearly 20mins to get served then half of our food was terrible… not my first time here but I guess service changed because of Covid?
Enjoyable, warm environment. If you time it right, you can get a table by the window when the sun shines through. Very comfortable
Pretty good brunch joint! Service was quick and the food was great! Ordered the French toast with compote and it was delicious. My partner ordered shakshuka; decent portion and really tasty.
Very delicious corned beef hash with the most perfect poached eggs! Service was quick and friendly. Felt very safe because of distancing and protocols. Would highly recommend!
Kyle, our server, was excellent! He felt bad that they were so busy but we had a lovely experience! He even gave us free drinks for the wait… which was not bad at all, I will say. He was very nice and the food was also excellent. I will definitely be returning!
Food is very good. Service was excellent. The waitress was great and very attentive and friendly.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Hothouse. I had the lamb shank with mashed potatoes. The lamb was so tender it fell off the bone, and the mash was divine. Our server was also fabulous, with his suggestions and his attentiveness.
Food was really good and just the right amount....the waiter was very attentive, and the atmosphere was relaxing... would definitely go back again!
The Hot House is always a good time. The food is good and it arrived quickly. Server is fabulous…ask for Scott if you can!
It was my first time experiencing the brunch buffet service at The Hothouse. The live band was a very nice added touch. The food was okay, there were a couple of dishes that were bit too salty for my liking. The service was alright as well. It took a while to get glasses of waters sent to our table. It seemed as though we had two servers assigned to our table, but neither of them were aware of what orders/ requests were made. Every time we came back to the table there were no cutlery to eat with and so my partner had to find a server to replace them each time. There was
also a few time when I was walking back and forth to our table and was rudely cut off by the server assistance. As someone who has worked in the hospitality industry, this is not appropriate. I don’t expect them to stop abruptly every time because I understand how busy a brunch service of this magnitude can be, but it would be nice to get cut off while I’m walking with a full plate of food.
Overall I gave a 4/5 because I do enjoy coming to this restaurant and intend on coming back again.!
Paid $10 a glass for Apple
Juice. Prices high especially that food was not always replaced unless someone was saying something. More concerned with sanitizing than providing food
Love the pear cranberry French toast. Would be great to have the eggs Bennies back. Coffee was weaker than I remember.
Really good place for a brunch, lasagna us amazing and yhe BBQ chicken.
My 4 friends and I were seated BEHIND the band in the upper dining room. I stated on the reservation that this was a special occasion. I wouldn't have sat people at that table, given the amount of foot traffic, and it's proximity to the band. We were constantly being nudged and interrupted. It really put a damper on what should have been a celebratory occasion.
We found the music MUCH too loud, we couldn't hear each other speak. We had to constantly yell at each other. It's unfortunate that we had this experience, given that we've enjoyed Hot House in the past.
We've always enjoyed brunch at The Hothouse. The food is amazing, so much variety to please all tastes. The ambiance is electric. And the jazz band playing in the background is always enjoyable.
There was an unusually long wait for drinks and then for dinner. The server was attentive but almost impossible to hear with all the noise around, Food was good if not a little overpriced.
Brunch was amazing … my friend and I both had the earl grey mimosas. I had it 2yrs ago for the Mother’s Day brunch buffet and was still delicious. Had the shouskha and the spices were on point.
Would def come again and again 😋
We had the tomato soup based on the recommendation of our server, and he was not wrong! We also had the capelletti and the curry chicken. All of it was hot, fresh and delicious. We will definitely return!
Great service and delicious meal! Always a positive experience at Hothouse !
Been eating here for years and it never disappoints.
A pleasure to eat there.
