Excellent experience as always! When we want consistency of all the elements of eating in a restaurant we head to the HH!
Nice, comfortable place. Butternut squash ravioli was so-so – the tomato sauce overpowered the squash filling. Good deal on cocktails. Service was excellent.
There are so many delicious items to choose from. The meals are beautifully seasoned with excellent pairings of ingredients. The ambience is always fun but it is quiet enough for easy conversation. I really appreciate the price point. A stellar meal without exorbitant cost. I return all the time although I live in Markham. Too bad your sister restaurant is on The
Danforth instead of in my area.
Great meal and nice touch that the manager came to our table to ask how everything was
We went for Winterlicious and absolutely loved our meals. Generous portions, delicious flavours.
Great restaurant. First time here and will definitely return.
Wonderful dinner for Winterlicious. My date and I found ourselves enjoying the food and meal enthusiastically. Looking forward to coming back to try the menu further.
Nice cozy place with great ambiance and attentive staff; food was good too.
Nothing was overly outstanding about the whole experience. Reasonable prices, food was fine (nothing to write home about, but no real complaints either, I could eat it again), but our server needs to improve.
He brought out a pate appetizer dish with no bread or toast to go with it. We waited to see if he was coming back with the rest of the dish. When it was clear that it wasn't happening, we had to flag someone else to get him so we could ask if we were really meant to eat pate and mustard alone. He mumbled something vague and quickly came back with a two slices of crostini. After the meal, he gave us the bill without being asked. If it was a lunch, I'd appreciate it because speedy service is a godsend when you only have 1h for lunch. But this was dinner. Are they trying to kick us out? The place was half empty and it was only 8:00pm.
Overall, not a bad experience but not the greatest either.
I had lunch with a friend. We loved the Winterlicious menu. I had the ribs and soup and my friend ordered the chicken parm and salad. All were very good. The hostess greeted us warmly and made us feel special. She even held the door as we left the restaurant. Highly recommend.
The dinner was, as always, excellent. The Hot House is a long-time favorite.
The waiter was incompetent. The food was horrendous . The manager was disrespectful and lacked common sense.
My friend and I go at least once a month to The Hot House. Our server was Dan, he's excellent and we are sorry to hear that he is leaving.
Fantastic experience. The gentleman who served us was very pleasant and professional. The man who greeted my girlfriend and I at the door immediately suggested for us to be seated in a nice booth.
Food is always good,
My friends and I go to Hot House often because it is one of, if not the only, restaurants near union station (convenient location for us) that can accommodate larger groups, is quiet enough for conversation, has a menu with lots of options, reasonable prices and tasty food. We love hot house!
It was very easy to set up the reservation via Open Table. We were a group of four and we were seated at a table near a window. The server was very friendly and patient. He offered many daily specials and recommendations. I’ve been to this restaurant numerous times and I always enjoy taking my friends here to eat. I will definitely come back!
As always, a reliable lunch with good service and great food.
Always a good experience.
Service was top notch ... Italian food is to die for. Fresh sauces and really looks and tastes home made
Big fan !
Hostess was not very helpful, did not show me to our table, just pointed to a direction that was unhelpful. The server we had luckily was nice. The buffet is lacking in quality and the price has gone up.
Hot House is nice for groups and meet ups. It can be very noisy on the weekends but at least they’ll probably have a live jazz band. Overall great experience and good food. Try it.
My wife and I both ordered Pizza Di Parma as our main course. The pizza was very tasteless, probably due to a complete lack of taste, or appearance, of tomato sauce. We had to check the menu to ensure it was an ingredient. Crust was good, could have used a touch more cheese and the ham was good. Overpriced for the product received.
A true gem in the St. Lawrence market neighbourhood. One of my favs.
Food was amazing !!
A friend and I met for lunch. She had never been to Hot House Cafe before. We were about to order an entree until we asked about the soup for the day. We had the most delicious cream of brussel sprout soup. It was hot, creamy, flavourful and filling and fabulous. So filling we decided to share a sandwich instead of the entree.
My friend and I decided to make our lunch a regular thing at the Hot House Cafe. I've been to this restaurant many times for various lunches, three times for Thanksgiving dinner and numurous other meals. It is very much my "go-to" place for good food!
There dinner buffet on Wednesdays is not as good as there Sunday brunch! Call ahead and make reservations this place gets busy fast.
First time at Hot House and it won't be our last. So many delicious choices that we are looking forward to our return. I had the ribs and my wife had shrimp and a salad. Arturo was our server and he was brilliant. Only next time was the hostess who lacked a warm welcome.
Sunday Brunch, & Jazz... wonderful food options, from breads, an omelette station, ( breakfast
choices, including bacon, sausages), healthy salads, hot entrees, such as lasagne, roast beef, etc., - all 3 meals & desserts at one time !!!
Did not have anything more that day, other than water, coffee, tea !
Good food, consistently delivered. Good menu choices at very good prices. Enough vegetarian choices to satisfy my daughter-in-law. Great staff.
