It had been a while since I had eaten at Crowded House. God knows why - I won't leave it so long again. Great, fresh, tasty food. We all ended up eating bits of each others, because we were all ooohing and aaahing so much, we just had to "try" everything. The spicy shashuka IS spicy, just so you know. The Dawn Omelette was incredible. The waffles, everything. Wonderful brunch. See you again soon friends!

I made a res for my boss who held a bus lunch meeting - when he returned he said the food was amazing and the service excellent. I will definitely be earmarking my own visit as I love Mediterranean food.

We were fortunate to discover Crowded House last Saturday night.
The food was exceptional, the dips, the breads,the entrees were all delicious...the best falafel ever!! The chicken kebabs, lamb chops etc. were outstanding.
We were a party of 4 so we were able to taste many of the items on the menu.
The open kitchen allows you to see how every item is made fresh!
The owners were so lovely, very passionate about their food!
Crowded house is a hidden gem!!!

Food was fresh and good. You could see the cooks making everything fresh (meat, falafels, etc.) and by hand. Good mix of options including vegetarian options. The place was busy but not too crowded; no line out the door, there was maybe one table available. However we waited more than one hour for our meals with no visits from the wait staff in between to say "your food will be ready soon" or "sorry for the wait" etc.. We just kept waiting and wondering...

There were four of us and we shared a delcious platter and then had our own entrees. My lamb chops were terrific, the rice was flavourful and my friend's french fried potatoes were really good.
I'd definately go there again and recommend it to friends.

Great friendly service without being too intrusive. Very fresh delicious food. Great shawarma, lamb chops, fried eggplant. Dips we plentiful and fresh. Lafave is made when ordered and arrives hot at your table. Will definitely be back if we can get a table (it’s very busy).

My family and friends have eaten at Crowded House on a number of occasions and never been disappointed. Iris and Mike are always welcoming and accommodating and always have provided
very friendly and efficient service in a very timely manner. Also, the Shashuka is the best in the
city. What's not to like?

Overall was great. Definitely come back. I would just work on having dedicated servers and not the owner/chef as service is a bit slower
