    Waited 40 minutes and nobody checked us out after appetizer and had mid-courses skipped. Served one wrong main course and had to replace it. Switched mid-courses after being told they went bad. Basically ruined our vday. The manager had a good altitude though but the overall experience was awful.

    Chef needs to pay more attention to what is leaving the kitchen. I have ordered grilled octopus, and while the entire dish was good, the "puffed grains" were raw and inedible. Also some of the preserved apple balls were so sour that almost ruined the entire dish. The smoked chicken, beef tartar and octopus where good.

    Food was fantastic. Service was extremely slow, servers seemed stressed and over all in a bad mood. Could be understaffed or something. Took 45 minutes for one app to come out, server didn’t acknowledge how long it took. No mocktail options listed. Was a pretty weird experience, but no complaints about the food other than how long it took.

    Stayed at the Walper Hotel and had dinner at TWH Social. From the lobby it’s down the hall and downstairs. Restaurant is very spacious. There is dining room seating, bar seating and several booth tables in the bar area. There is also another section in the back of the dining room that looks like an area for private parties. Our server Claire was wonderful, friendly, and attentive. The menu offers a good variety of options with 2 soups plus a soup of the day. Very happy for this soup lover. Unfortunately they did not have a soup of the day ready for dinner so I opted for one of the 2 soups regularly on the menu. We ordered: Calamari $20 - made fresh, large pieces, light crispy batter, jalapeño aioli. Oh so good. Butternut squash soup $8 - rosemary flavour with cream. Excellent flavour and texture, and actually served steaming hot not lukewarm like a lot of restaurants these days. Orange. Fennel & Shrimp $18 - black tiger shrimp, orange, radish. chives, tomato + lemon vinaigrette. Light and refreshing, oranges were sweet and comes with a good amount of shrimp. 14oz Dry Aged Ribeye $48 - 28 day dry aged, celeriac mash purée, vine tomato, green beans, red wine jus - delicious Would highly recommend this place and plan to return if we are ever in this area again.

    I had a nice first dinner experience, wasn't very busy on a Sunday night, so, it turned out to be a nice quit meal. Interesting menu, wine list, and proper cocktails. Restaurant design is minimal, located in a basement of the historic Walper Hotel in downtown Kitchener. I'd definitely go back. Plus, the second floor bar located inside the hotel is a great place for drinks before dinner, it's a charming historic space that's minimally done. Thanks again!

    Had a lovely time with a few friends for dinner. The food was amazing, our server was absolutely fantastic. I will definitely be returning. My only qualm was the noise level. Because it’s all enclosed (basement) the sound is very close. Even though it didn’t feel very populated, it was difficult to have a conversation across the table.

    We had a great dining experience at TWH Social Bar & Bistro on New Year’s Eve. According to OpenTable, TWH Social Bar & Bistro offered a 4-course set menu for $110 per person on December 31st, 2023 1. The restaurant is known for its locally inspired, forward-thinking dishes and craft cocktails. It’s located in downtown Kitchener and offers an upscale casual atmosphere for restaurant and bar enthusiasts. The dining experience exceeded our expectations. The restaurant’s advantage started with the online reservation app called (Open Table), and Bistro’s convenient central location. I recommend Uber rideshare for ease of access, getting to and from the venue. The entire dining experience began from the online reservation option, and then continued throughout the entire night with the ambiance of the decor, the polite service staff, the creative twists to the preferred menu choice selections was precise and well presented to our table. Exceptional value! We vote 100% customer satisfaction!

    Food was decent. Server was fine, but it would been nice to have our table of 7 Food come at the same time and if the server was given assistance to bring the main dishes to the table. Two of us received our meal and there was a quite a lag time for the others to receive their meal. I would fault the kitchen not the server for this. Desert menu was not to my liking, but that is just personal preference.

    Our experience here was outstanding; the food, delicious, the staff amazing and although the restaurant was being slammed at the time , worked together as a well oiled machine, the dB level on my sound pressure meter was way too high! Fortunately my wife and I are ASL users so we compensated for not being able to have an auditory/oral conversation.

    The food is fantastic, and the room has nice ambiance. The service was painfully slow. We waited 1 hour and 15 minutes for our food to arrive and there was little attention paid to whether we needed anything throughout the night. We appreciate they comped us for desserts at the end of the night.

    I had the goat cheese and caramelized onion dip and the pasta al limone and Cesar salad. I could have had a couple more shrimp in the pasta and a piece of bread to soak up the sauce as a personal preference. The food was delicious and presentation was on point. Our waiter (guy with goatee) was amazing! We actually came back for breakfast. I had the classic breakfast, however I was disappointed that the breakfast only came with 1 slice of bacon halfed. The sausage I could have done without (personal preference). The bread was tasty and so were the home fries. We had a great experience all around.
