Took my boyfriend here for his birthday. Made a reservation for 445 to be able to get happy hour oysters and they were all out of oysters both regular and happy hour when we arrived which was disappointing. The food we did order was good, but took awhile.
Great day out first time at H tasting happy hour. unfortunately you ran out of oysters
Excellent service by all staff for high tea. I went Oct 17, 2020. For 12 pm seating. They served me creme brulee for my birthday.
Fantastic and friendly service and outstanding food.
Just checking out...
dining room is not set up properly for dining ! it's mostly lounge chairs and couches and handful number of very cheap looking dining table that u see in fast food restaurants .... It needs to be redecorated properly if you serve customers meals that are NOT finger food !!!
Our waiter was Mel and he made the experience phenomenal. I went for my birthday and it couldn’t have gone any better. Mel made amazing recommendations and made sure all us were enjoying our food and drinks. The lounge itself was very aesthetically pleasing and quiet and the patio has a great view. I also really appreciated their COVID protocols. I will most definitely go again
Our service was amazing, Mitch created a memorable experience with great wine recommendations. Prices are so reasonable and the value was great. Highly recommend for both dinner and happy hour.
The music was loud and awful. Ruined the ambiance. Playing loud elevator music is not a good ambiance to have dinner. The heaters could be on as it was a cold day.
Loved the food, service, ambiance, everything!! We had the best server. Forgot to catch his name but he was awesome and got a fat tip from me. He ended up giving us free lemon drops! Haha thought that was really sweet of him to do that.
Our waiter was very unfriendly and unwilling to accommodate my friends food, as she was a vegetarian. He simply replied back by saying “that’s too bad.” Once we switched out waiter she was given an alternative for her food. I think we were mainly upset because we had come to H Tasting for my friends birthday lunch.
Service and food were great, we had an amazing time
Great, food and drinks were good, staff was friendly and the overall ambience is great
Love everything,already 3 time and we ll come again
In times of COVID and wanting to enjoy a beautiful spot with friends; while keeping a social distance, this is the perfect place.
Although we were outside and didn't have a clear view of the water; the ambience and the gorgeous fire pit and waterfall was lovely.
Patio is a beaut, drink that came in a teapot was delicious.
Beautiful location. Great ambience and outstanding service.
Great patio and great service. Would definitely come back!
Patio seating was cozy and well lit. Sat right by the fireplace and was under an umbrella, the restaurant was really clean and customer service was excellent. The buck a shuck oysters for happy hour were fresh and delicious! Cute place to take your date or chill with the girls.
Thank you for making my 30th birthday dinner special. The service was impeccable and I appreciate the surprise dessert. Thank you again!
Happy Hour! This place is beautiful and their service is wonderful! The only reason it didn't get 5 🌟 is unfortunately out of the 12 oysters I had 6 of them had bits of broken shell in them, not the end of the world but definitely unpleasant. Their happy hour isn't extensive (it only has 3 food items on it) but they were all well prepared. We had the following:
24 Kusshi Oysters (Happy Hour Buck-a-shuck) - plump, fresh & creamy. Was missing the horseradish though.
2 Sliders (Happy Hour Item) - flavourful & filling, a lot packed into a little bite. Could have been a little hotter.
2 Fish Tacos (Happy Hour Item) - fish was nice & crispy, pico de gallo was fresh, & the cabbage gave it a nice crunch.
Truffle Fries - crispy on the outside, fluffy & pillowy soft on the inside just like a good fry should be & that side of aioli 🔥
Americano Cocktail (Happy hour Item) - my partner enjoyed this drink but it wasn't for me
Lemongrass Lemonade - had great flavour with a touch of sweetness it was delicious & refreshing
2 Coffees - strong & smooth not bitter at all.
Had a few drinks here after a wedding. Always a great experience here at H Tasting Lounge. Thank you for looking after us Judi!
Tasty. Drinks mixed well. Friendly and professional service.
We waited for 2 hours before we could get a seat on The patio. I had a reservation already but other people would get a table before us. Food took like another hour to come. My husband and I would never ever go back to that restaurant and would never recommend it. It ruined our mood and date night. We even told one of the servers that other people are being seated outside before us and she agreed. If you cant give the same kind of service And treat everyone the same no what what their race is, then you should probably just close your restaurant. We’ve never felt like this before at any other restaurant we’ve been to.
Perhaps the best evening patio in the city!! Can't say enough good about this spot!
Atmosphere was ok . But the food was no taste at all
Oyster not fresh.
Decent experience. This was my boyfriend and I’s first experience here. We had made reservations for 5pm and requested seating for the patio in advance. However, upon arrival, we were seated inside (as apparently they don’t take resos for patio) for half of our time there. Clearly our reservation did not do us any good as it wasn’t even busy inside at that time. We eventually got moved outside. Food is decent and drinks are over-priced for what they actually are. My boyfriend asked for a Moscow Mule and our waiter sent him a different drink. Not worth the price.
It was great and nice, food was good, overall I like it
Julie my waitress she was excellent and she made sure I wasnt feeling left out since I couldn't find a place in the patio also made sure I ordered all the food I wanted!
While understand pandemic, need a larger happy hr menu
Wonderful happy hour menu, fantastic location as well as service. Would recommend to friends.
Drinks took so long to come. Food was good. Very pricey for drinks
Overall good experience. Patio beautiful , service attentive
Beautiful lounge! Very upscale vibe! Fireside tables r amazing👏
Just a beautiful restaurant. I love how they are always changing up the vibe. It’s very “instagrammable”. Food was good.
Amazing ambience, great service... will definitely be back :)
Even though 3 of us came and there wasn't any space at the patio the servers notified us and we didn't have to sit inside it seems either glass or ice was falling at some moments and the operations manager came immediately to check to solve the problem. Waiters were absolutely amazing this is the second time we came back and we will be coming back again soon.
Great happy hour from 3-5 daily, oysters for $1 each. Service is always awesome!!
