The food was good, not great, as there is room for improvement. I had desired for better service as a couple of times i was on the lookout for our waitress. The atmosphere was great, dim lighting, cozy tables, and occasional food smells (in a good way).

I make sure to go to Scaddabush a few times whenever I’m in Toronto :) the Zucca Ravioli is the best dish I have ever eaten !! I wish they would open a Scaddabush in Nova Scotia

The food and service were great. The only reason we gave ambience a 3 was that it was way too hot in the restaurant and difficult to enjoy it. Otherwise all was wonderful.

Booked a table for a “date day” late lunch before the Maple Leafs game. Had great service and even better food. The best part is the atmosphere - not too loud but not quiet, dimmed lights and rustic vibes. Definitely recommend and will be back.

The music was a little too loud and the food came way too quickly considering our party got an appetizer to share. The server (Sean) also failed to give us cutlery, napkins, ask us for our drink orders or refill our drinks. While the restaurant was busy we could see him wandering around aimlessly and in the end we had to ask another server to help us. That said the food and atmosphere were great!

Anna and Shaun helped us out and they were both great. It was busy because there was a conference in town (we were part of the conference). The servers were pulled in a number of directions so service was a little slower than I would expect under normal circumstances but the quality did not suffer.

Our second time at the restaurant for dinner before a show. The first time was fantastic. The second time the restaurant was much busier and no one came to our table to talk to us for 15 minutes. We had to ask another server if he could get ours to come to our table. The food is good so we will give them another chance on the service side.

I’m usually a fan of Scaddabush, but unfortunately I won’t be returning to this location any time soon.

Everything just seemed dirty. First we had to ask for a clean water glass (I know this happens), but then the flat water came out cloudy and undrinkable. Then we had to get a clean fork (one of the two had chunks of food dried on).

We both had vodka sodas and when we went to place a like on a side plate, we noticed all 4 on the table were dirty. Fortunately we didn’t have to use them for food.

To top it off, our vodka sodas unfortunately had an odd cucumber taste, but it was a while before the server came by (to be fair the place was packed) and we decided to just drink since water wasn’t drinkable.

Food was tasty as usual, but everything being dirty really put us off.

The food was very good as always. My only comment is that the portion sizes are very (almost too) generous. If we were not going to the hockey game, we would certainly have taken the remainder home. Our server, Mel, was very good.....friendly and professional.

Awesome place to eat. We always make a point in coming here when in downtown Toronto. Have eaten here several times now & have never had a bad meal. Our latest meal, we had a dessert we didn't really care for. They gave it to us complimentary (without even being asked) plus the Manager came over & gave us a coupon for a free dessert on our next visit. Customer service is great. No complaints whatsoever!
