It was so good!! The drinks (spirit free) were sooo good, and all the dishes were delicious! I loved the pita bread so much and the hummus was perfect!

Halloumi was very small portion. Pita was brilliant. Falafels were nothing exciting.

Everything was great. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Do not leave without trying the pistacho and cherry ice-cream, it was memorable. I’m definitely coming back.

Well put together delicious food, portion size on the smaller side which is why I rated value a little lower.

Very creative menu that's designed for sharing which I love. One half of their menu is dedicated to wine! Creative cocktails and the dips are so good! Loved the tah dig with the pickled peaches- like nothing I've had before. Service was friendly and attentive on the quiet front patio. I'll be back- thanks for a great evening!

The atmosphere of the restaurant is very warm and energetic. It's cozy and inviting and I particularly liked the open kitchen. The standout dishes for me were the dips and unbelievable homemade pita. The salads and mains were tasty but not sensational. The one disappointment was the wine list a 9 oz glass of wine started at $25 which I find too costly for a casual restaurant.

Waited very long time for table we reserved. Food took long time to come out, some of it was cold. Servers kept apologizing for delay but no improvement made too noisy .

We were so looking forward to our first visit to Shook Kitchen. The food we ordered was delicious and flavourful, especially the items with freshly baked bread and dessert. We were disappointed that quite a few items on the menu had run out or were unavailable that day and the waiter seemed frazzled. Having said that we would try it again, hoping the food inventory would be improved. We really enjoyed the cocktails and beautiful decor as well.

From the moment we were greeted to leaving the restaurant we received amazing service. The menu, atmosphere, food and customer service was exceptional. A special thank you to James. We had a great time celebrating. As international visitors, Shook was recommended to us and we are happy to pass on this recommendation each and every time we know of anyone visiting Toronto!

Enjoyed the food - unusual for us - Israeli - many unfamiliar dishes but very good. Friendly helpful service explained the available choices. And who knew pita, which I normally dislike, could actually be outstanding.

Service was sloooow. If they were going for the real Tel Aviv feel they nailed it with the pace of service. They stayed true. Aside from the utterly slow service... the food was delicious. Israeli to the T. Felt like I was back in Israel at a restaurant.

Arrived at Shook at 145- order was taken at 2:15 food arrived at 250pm... plan accordingly

First time there, the staff were extremely friendly. They catered to my celiac diet and cut up cucumbers for me for the hummus which I really appreciated greatly. Will definitely be back.

Waitress was great. Food was poor. We wanted falafel but they were sold out on a Monday at 8:20 pm ?? Roasted pepper dip was great but our bread was burnt to a black crisp, mushroom kibbeh was ok and the kabob of eggplant, mushroom and tofu lacked flavour.
