    Claiming to be a middle eastern restaurant I would expect it to get atleast bread right, but no, it as underwhelming as the service.

    We loved it! Everything was delicious from the hummus and salad to our mains. Even the pita- hot from the oven- was spectacular! We will be back very soon - in fact, I made another reservation while we ate.

    Very friendly staff. Food was excellent. Place was very clean. Portion sizes could be larger for the price point. Ideal place if you want to order many sides and share among friends. Nice place for both business meals and friends get togethers. Would recommend to others and visit again.

    Wow, covid changed things. We were there two years ago for a Sunday lunch and loved it. Yesterday, another Sunday, not so great. Uninformed service, slow, the open kitchen was clearly in disarray, and the place wasn't even that full. Food still tasty...Portions have diminished, although they have everywhere. Will be back in a couple of years, maybe.

    We took my best friend here for her birthday, party of 5. This has got to be the best vegetarian restaurant in Toronto by far. The food is absolutely fantastic. Two of the guys only love meat and they were just eating it all up. Haha! We almost ordered everything on the menu and our server Adrian was amazing. Thank you for taking care of us!

    I came to Shook with a friend one night after a different restaurant canceled our reservation with no notice. I’m so glad we stumbled upon this place because it was incredible! So incredible that when it came time to make a reservation for my Mom’s birthday a few nights later, I knew I had to bring my family back. It was the first time me, my mom and all my siblings were having a meal together in years, and Shook made it so special! Their staff is very attentive, everyone was so warm and welcoming. Our glasses were always full, our dishes cleared immediately. They parsed out our meal beautifully, and they were just so, so kind. The hostess even came over to our table, offered to take a family photo for us and chatted with us for a bit. The food is to DIE for. Even our littlest sibling (who is arguably the pickiest person on the planet) said he enjoyed everything he tried! Delicious, scrumptious flavours, albeit a little pricey for vegetarian options. Nevertheless, every time I thought it would be my last bite, I had to have just one more. Thank you so much to the entire Shook team that made our first meal together in ages so special, and for the birthday dessert at the end. It was also so refreshing to be at a restaurant that wasn’t trying to rush us out from the moment they seated us, as this seems to be the theme for many Toronto restaurants post-pandemic. My mom was so happy and our family had a LOVELY time. Cannot wait to bring more friends and family back here! You guys are AWESOME!!

    Very diluted version of Mediterranean/ Middle Eastern food. I wouldn’t call it a fusion . There are no balance of tastes, the menu was not set with any attention on if they would even go together therefore it created a confusion of taste on every bite. Everything tasted very bland.

    The food, drinks and service are very good and commendable, however the price point for much of the menu is miscalibrated with vegetarian value. Really small portion sizes for vegetarian dishes and often leave one wanting more but holding back. If there was meat and seafood, I’d totally get it.

    This is the 3rd time in the row with the worst experience. I gave it 3 chances. I’ll never be back. They forgot our appetizer- olives. They forgot a main - falafel. Our wine glass sat empty for 30 minutes before anyone came back to ask if we wanted another drink. We were the first to be seated and the absolute last to be served. It is not lost on us that of the first to be seated & last to be served - we were the only visible minority table. All the Caucasian tables were served before us and correctly, even though arriving well after us. We complained and the manager on duty didn’t even give us the dignity of coming to our table to talk - another Caucasian. We will never be back and I will go out of my way to deter friends and family from ever stepping foot in this restaurant. A disappointed former Parton.
