    We made a reservation because it was a vegetarian restaurant. We were not informed the menu changed. We will not return. There was very little left on the menu that satisfied us.

    Amazing! One of the best restaurants in Toronto. Better than any of the Israeli restaurants I tried in NYC, my previous home. We went for brunch and ate the kibbe, the shakshouka, and the shook fry up, and drank some lattes.

    The first time I ate at Shook it was a revelation! But their ability to use spice in creative ways has become so heavy handed that it’s lost all nuance. We had to add water to the soup to make it palatable. And the dishes were so one noted as to be overwhelming. Starting out as a vegetarian restaurant I was really dismayed to see the almost $100 wagu on the menu. So rather than great vegetarian foods, the vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters amongst us all found that there were very limited options for each of us. The pita bread which arrived almost at the end of our meal was delicious. I had the roasted eggplant which was roasted tomato based vegetables in a bowl of roasted shakshuka style tomato sauce from their brunch service perhaps? Not a great match. The server was great. Very attentive. Decor lovely. Restaurant is super noisy and the price point for what you are getting seems out of sync. Although if the quality and taste was what I remember when I first enjoyed their vegan shwarma and cauliflower steak I’d be happy to pay the prices. For vegan fair I prefer Planta. For meat so many other options. Please choose a lane and offer some nuanced notes amongst the strong flavours of your dish. I shouldn’t have to order a side to a $30 entree just to get a different note on my plate.

    Enjoyed the food. Server was kind, quick and gave good advice. When I booked the place it was because to was listed online as vegetarian and my friend is. I thought it would be nice for her to go to a restaurant where she could order everything. It turns out they now have meat on the menu. Which is ok, but they need to update all the advertising. My one disappointment was I ordered a cocktail and it was fabulous until I found a fly in it. These things happen sometimes, but when I gave it to the server, she had the appropriate reaction, but nothing was done to try and make up for it. The space is nice, the food was tasty.

    Great cocktails. Couscous with Cheese was lovely. Lots of other great menu items from the hummus and pita, to the tofu, as well as lamb cheese pizza (forgot name of meal. Sorry). The downside. Visited on Sunday round 6pm after a show. Found ourselves waiting an extended period for our food despite the only ones there. Even when arrived, service members over visited and cleared plates way too often. Told the waitress was our Mom's birthday. Best wishes from hostess but nothing special planned or offered by their staff. Would still go again for the food and the Road to Aleppo Cocktail.

    Staff was attentive, interior was interesting and each dish had a little bit of a surprise to it. Definitely get the Chicken soup. Soup? Yes, soup. It is by far the most interesting and complex chicken soup I've had in my life. Perfect for the cooler months. Great spot for a small group who want to share dishes.

    I can’t say enough good things. Super friendly service and without a doubt the best food we’ve had in Toronto. The flavours were so deep and layered in everything so that each bite was distinct from the previous and filling the tastebuds with its own unique profile. Absolutely fantastic. We will return here the next time in town

    Shook has changed completely. We went there the second time because the vegetarian food previously was really good. However, there’s a complete change in the vibe, the menu, the music and the restaurant. It was packed, noisy, and the new menu was missing all the gems from the last time we went. Given the price and this change in the experience (less veggie food) we won’t be going there again :(

    Great experience at Shook Kitchen for dinner. Group of four and all loved their food. Everything was delicious and special. From shared appetizers to main courses the portions were generous and exciting! Fattoush salad & hummus & pita were outstanding!!! Main dish eggplant schnitzel out of this world delish! Ambiance was great and energetic and really enjoyed our evening. Will be back!

    Food--starters & eggplant schnitzels--was delicious, if not inexpensive. Wine list overpriced but original. Service friendly and attentive. Restaurant well-designed. Unfortunately, the entire experience was ruined by music that might have been ok but was so loud it was a physical assault. We left exhausted and deafened from having to shout at and be shouted at by the waitress and the person beside and across from us. Everyone in the restaurant was shouting at everyone else to be heard above the music.

    What a find! Recommended by a local while I was visiting TO. All the dishes were so delicious. The hummus & pita were the best I've ever tasted; we watched the pita come out of the fire oven to the table. Highly recommend the eggplant schnitzel, the chemen tempeh had a beautiful presentation. Drinks a bit pricey, food may seem pricey but the presentation and taste worth it. Music a tad loud for us older gals. Make a reservation and enjoy the experience.
