    My husband and I went to TWH social for the first time to celebrate his birthday. We received a complimentary glass of champagne for the occasion. The food was incredible and the service was excellent. It has a warm inviting vibe. We will most definitely be returning.

    Nothing but positive words after our dinner! Our server, Jake, was ON THE BALL. He recognized we were there to celebrate our mothers birthday, and immediately brought some complimentary bubbles to our table to start. The food service was very efficient, and the taste was superb. Jake additionally brought us a beautiful ‘happy birthday’ cheesecake, on the house, as the cherry on top to a fantastic experience. We WILL be returning. Thank you kitchen staff, and thank you Jake!

    Mauro? and the hostess were very attentive and totally on point. Walper Salad, Potato Croquette, Crispy trout and Agnlotti truffle pasta were as expected and yummy ...so yummy. Well done Kitchen. Starting our B-day celebration w/glass of bubbly was a really nice touch. Everyone should start their meal w/bubbly..lol Thanks for a great dining experience.

    Could not fault the food at all, but we visited on New Year’s Eve so the service and attention to detail was lacking. They were super busy and our cutlery was dirty, they brought the wrong wine out, and it was over 75 minutes until our main meals came out and it was only a 90 minute sitting. Apart from all this, the food was absolutely incredible, the flavours were pleasing to the palate, the duck, lobster ravioli and desserts were a major highlight! In regards to ambiance, I would say that the music was too loud (but it was New Year’s Eve, so this may not be the case, normally. We will return for the exquisite food and to see if they can redeem themselves, service wise.

    It’s a beautiful place. The halibut was hardly worth the price. The portion was literally 2-3oz. So tiny! And served with few parsnips. Left there starving.

    We loved our experience at TWH Social! Staff were friendly and attentive, and food was excellent. We brought our boys, 9 and 12, and they said their meals were the best they've ever had {children's burger and chicken fingers}. We'd highly recommend to others, and looking forward to visiting again soon.

    Two of us had a wonderful meal at TWH Social. The signature cocktails were exciting and delicious. We elected to eat small dish style, sharing several appies and a salad. The grilled octopus was a real treat, as was the calamari. The funguy flatbread was full of flavour and a perfect texture. Delightful mix of mushrooms, perfectly cooked. I liked the understated approach to Caesar salad. We are going back tonight, to try some more small dishes.

    This was our first time here and they did not disappoint! Everything from the hostess, servers, food, drinks, and ambiance was perfect! I took my bf for his birthday where they greeted us with 2 glasses of prosecco - nice touch :) The portions were just right (not too large nor too small). Everything is made in-house. We started with the fresh mozzarella app along with their famous sourdough bread. I had the crispy salmon while bf enjoyed the sausage and pesto pasta. Both meals were incredible! I was impressed with the level of service and professionalism. Not a detail was missed. I HIGHLY recommend and will return again as their Fall menu debuts in mid-October.

    Incredible experience at TWH Social, not only was the staff friendly and attentive but given we were there for a birthday they offered a complimentary drink and dessert as well. The food was exceptional, we eat out regularly and this was hands down one of the best restaurants we have dined at. The food was refined, flavourful, and plated beautifully. There are also many vegetarian and vegan options on the menu. Great experience, would recommend anyone seeking outstanding food and service to dine here.

    Read about this restaurant in the Toque magazine and thought we would try it out! We ended up having a wonderful evening. Food was phenomenal, our group ended up trying the octopus starter per our server’s recommendation and it was a hit. Miro provided exceptional service and made the entire experience.

    It was Bluesfest, they were understaffed and dealing with rude people who thought they could walk in off the street and get a table during one of the busiest weekends in DT Kitchener. The staff was so composed and polite, even when dealing with rude people without reso's. Service was great, quick, and three different people kept checking in on us to make sure things were perfect. My place to go in DT Kitchener!

    We were the first diners that night, arriving promptly. Were we celebrating? Yes - congrats from both attending house staff. Long story short, we must have had at least 6 house staff attending us during the visit. It took a while to receive most things we ordered. I had to ask 3 times for lemon for my water. We ordered appetisers & entrees along with our drink, again about 3 times. However when the drink finally arrived (a water & a Caesar), so did the entrées. We sent these straight back as we like the appetizers first, which we had seen nothing of. Eventually they materialised (as did the lemon for my water), & they tasted great. Another table had arrived after us, & their food came out of the kitchen, but the server had no idea which table it belonged to, as he paraded it around the restaurant - this was before we received our appetizers. Other diners were filling the place, the noise level rising. Eventually the appetizers were removed & the entrées made a 2nd appearance, but there was probably about an hour difference between the two. By then, the pasta dish was very salty & had to be returned. A replacement was declined (timing issues) & the appetizers had filled us. My salad was good. We asked for the bill, noting the pasta had not been charged for, as pointed out by the server. The food was mostly good (bar the pasta), however there seemed much confusion & dis-organisation. We half expected Basil Fawlty to appear. Very nicely decorated. Nothing more was mentioned of our celebration, but our declining dessert may have something to do with that. Our section had a bit of a 'rush' put on it, as it was entirely booked for 7pm, hence our dessert refusal, to help them with this. The owners had made this a place looking promisingly nice, but we will blame covid for the rest of their challenges, resulting in lack of coordination.
