Nice little spot, great ambiance, service was great, music a tad too loud. No wine selection to speak of but the Sangria was delish. Food was good and came out in a timely manner. Would go again
Hi Ken! Thanks for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We definitely do like our music up loud but don't fret, we're revamping our wine list in the coming weeks with some really incredible, off-the-beaten path, bottles from our friends and suppliers. Hopefully you'll join us again when we release our new menu! Really appreciate your support, thank you again. Megh Forrester General Manager
Excellent food, very tasty! Hidden gem on King St. in Waterloo.
Love this place! You can always count on great staff, food and drinks. There is no other place like it in KW.
Thanks so much for such a lovely review!! We've got the best guests too! Really appreciate your support and kind words, Megh Forrester General Manager
Amazing time at White Rabbit! My friends and I went for girls night out and service was great! We didn’t feel rushed, they made us a customized drink, and the food was fantastic! Definitely will be back soon.
First time at White Rabbit since the pandemic hit. It did not disappoint! Cocktails, cauliflower wings, and porkbelly nachos were all amazing! Perfect spot for date night.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback, Tori! Glad you had a great time; hope to see you again soon. Megh Forrester General Manager
We had a great date night at white rabbit! The charcuterie board was fabulous, drinks were lovely, and the server was extremely friendly and nice. This is one of my favourite spots!
Glad you had such a great time with us, Jen! Hope we get to see you again soon. Thank you for all your support, Megh Forrester General Manager
Great food and attentive service
Thanks so much for your kind review, Susan! Hope to see you again soon, Megh Forrester General Manager
There was only 1 vegan appetizer and they were out of it. So the choice was between 2 salads and enchilada, the first bar where fries were not on the menu. Salad was good, I only wish they had more 🌱 options. Our server was amazing, and you have to try Rabbit Ricky cocktail. All in all it was ok, I’d recommend this place for drinks!
Hi Maja! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. I'm sorry we weren't able to offer you more vegetarian options, particularly the King Oyster Scallops which are one of my favourite items on the menu. I'd love to make it up to you on your next visit, if you'd like to shoot me an email when you're thinking of coming in next (firstname.lastname@example.org om ). Megh Forrester General Manager
A trendy restaurant in the heart of uptown Waterloo with a hipster vibe! I found the interior to be a wee bit on the dark side, but a warm atmosphere. The menu is very limited, so not easy to select different sharing options. The menu is also pricy, so be forewarned that an evening for two will run up a nice bill.
However, the food is amazingly delicious!! For sure the signature dish at $36 is the surf and turf! The prime rib literally melts in your mouth and the potatoes are well thought out. I would have liked to see a bit more meat on the plate, personally. I was left wanting for more!
Price is the only reason this did not get five stars. It is a trendy hipster restaurant with an appetite to try to compete with fancier restaurants where price is warranted.
Loved it, food was great, drinks were good
Great ambience and great experience didnt love my food but that’s okay. Entrees a little over priced.
The cocktails are excellent, although a bit on the sweet side for me. That is just a personal preference. The cauliflower wings are the best I've had anywhere, and the duck spring rolls with the pear sauce... so good. We also had the cod, blackened catfish and pork belly tacos. All were very good, with the blackened catfish as my personal favourite.
Thanks so much for this lovely review. I completely agree about the cauliflower wings, they're our best-seller for a reason! I'm glad you enjoyed your evening with us. Hope to see you again soon, Megh Forrester General Manager
Great food and drink and wonderful service. Would be great if they offered corn tortillas!
Hey Tara! Thanks so much for your kind review! I'll definitely pass the corn tortilla note on to our Chef. Hope to see you again soon, Megh Forrester General Manager
Very enjoyable place. Service was great as well as the food.
thank you! we had a great time. food was really good.
Thanks so much for your review, Lorenzo! Hope you'll join us again soon . Megh Forrester General Manager
Great place! My waitress tiara was amazing. She made us great cocktails and the food was amazing!
Glad you had a great time with us, Chantelle! See you again soon. Megh Forrester General Manager
The patio is out back (former parking) and pleasant on a sunny day, but like many "covid patios" it is picnic table style seating. For the quality of the food I prefer regular seating. We lucked in to an indoor table right at the front beside the massive open window. It was like a patio with better seating and protection from the elements!
The food was excellent and very creative. The shrimp po-boy was delicious and my table mate thought the surf and turf was great. The duck spring roll sounded great but I always find duck a bit dry (if you know you like duck give it a try).
Expect "reasonable" vs "road house" sized portions. You can enjoy both an appetizer and entre without being uncomfortably full but still feel you got great value!
Wow Ted! Thank you for writing such a thoughtful and detailed review. I'm so glad you had such a great time with us this week; we're looking forward to having you again. Take care and see you soon! Megh Forrester General Manager
Love it here! Will definitely be returning, the sangria is amazing.
Thanks so much Asya; we love having you!
Lovely food and cocktails! A bigger selection of main meals would be better but the food offered is very tasty
I love this place! They have great staff, great food and a great atmosphere:)
I ordered the ribs, they were unexpectedly spicy, it would have been better if I was warned about the spice, i might not have ordered them. Everything else was really nice, service was great :)
Awesome food and service. Thanks.
Great atmosphere, with solid music choices, amazing food and drinks, and amazing service! Have been there multiple times and have always been impressed :) I'll be back there soon!
Date Afternoon (night)
Great little place. Monday nights are ramen and dumpling night so great prices on those. Good beer selection and the cocktails are a lot of fun! The food is very creative and tasty. Two of us had the brisket sandwich and it was a good choice. The soup of the day was delicious!
The food has always been great at white rabbit. I ordered the beef brisket sandwich with salad, and loved both of them. They have great vegetarian options too.
I went for the vegan options and they literally had none of them, the server forgot my request to see if something was vegan so I asked three times. It’s so dark you can barely see and the music was so loud I had to raise my voice to even talk to my friend across a two person table. I probably won’t be going here again
Great atmosphere and great bar staff! Food was good. Had the charcuterie plate and it was massive. Easily enough for 2 people. The cocktails though are the piece de resistance. Interesting, delicious, and can be a show in itself. Decent number of taps but only a few that were noteworthy. Surprising # of lowbrow beers.
I was there with 2 friends for dinner. We thought the food was wonderful and we loved the music.
The atmosphere was what I liked until the food came and it was memorable. If you want a fun night out, this place has it all. I can’t wait to go back!
Was good, but they sat 5 of us in a booth really designed for 4. They serve the mains on big wooden planks, so it was really awkward when the mains arrived.
Great atmosphere and endless booze selection. If it was just a little quieter it would be easier to talk.
The food and cocktails were amazing. The brisket and ribs were the best I've had in a while . The bad apple was addictive.
Excellent food, service, ambience as usual!
Great restaurant with a wonderfully playful menu. Lovely boards that are great for sharing when you don't want a full meal.
Amazing charcuterie as always!
Saturday matinee with the fantastic Rob Szabo was a great way to bring friends together for an afternoon beverage or two. Great service - always - food, drink. White Rabbit is fantastic.
Service was very friendly and staff was attentive.
A dinner of appetizers and drinks was great sharing with 4 friends.
We just had a feeling that we were being rushed/pushed out. The restaurant wasn't busy, it was Monday night, so we didn't see any good reason for it.
The Rabbit is BACK!!! The new menu is absolutely delicious! Given that the Rabbit is my favourite restaurant in KW, I was really bummed when the last menu didn't live up to the awesomeness that we've come to know and love. We're so happy to have our "go-to" spot back! Can't wait till our next visit.
