    It was just ok, we went for the brunch buffet and it was way too busy. We had a hard time moving around the buffet table because it was so busy. A lot of the food trays were empty. We had to cut it short because we were trying to get to a Blue Jay game and we couldn't wait for the food to come out.

    I booked for the patio, but it was too cold, so a very nice young man moved us inside. After the move, the table service was very slow, but the food was outstanding.

    We've been coming to HotHouse for about 20 years. As always, the food and service did not disappoint! My friend and I shared two pasta dishes for lunch. The gnocchi with pancetta and a gorgonzola/mascarpone cheese cream sauce was delicious, with pillowy soft gnocchi and sauteed brown mushrooms nestled in the rich sauce. The penne Al olio had just the right balance of fresh vegetables (broccolini, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, and sweet onions), pancetta and a lovely, light olive oil. We will be returning in July!

    Service was great! We arrived Sunday afternoon and were seated right away. The buffet offer many quality choices and good quantity based on how busy it was. The food was delicious and our party of five all had a wonder experience. Did I mention the live jazz band?! I'll be back for sure.

    The buffet is good with great ambiance/live jazz band. I don’t like that at payment the smallest automatic tip is 18% AND they calculate it based on the subtotal plus tax. I felt tricked after looking at my receipt when I got home.

    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.
