    Unfortunately they gave away our reservation to a walk-in on this instance and we never got to dine here. Despite that, the manager called me a short time later and offered to seat us in their group / private party dining room to accommodate. We were already eating somewhere else but appreciated the attempt. I'll base the stars on previous visits however - always great food, drinks and environment. I'll still return despite the above snafu.

    Had dinner for the first time at this restaurant. We may have been there too early as it was not really busy for a Saturday night. In saying this the food was delicious, the portion were appropriate and our waiter was very friendly. Would definitely dine there again.

    Great atmosphere that’s on the energetic side (requires speaking loud to hear the person across from you), a few service details lacking but otherwise very pleased. First time here and would return.

    It was a bit pricey, especially since I went on Mother's day, and they had a more expensive menu than usual. But the food was amazing. I asked for eggs to be removed from a dish to make it vegan, and the chefs went above and beyond with a creative substitution of mushroom tempura.

    We went for Mother’s Day. It wasn’t overly busy. Our waitress seemed to be pretty new, so take our review with a grain of salt. The food was delicious, the ambiance is wonderful, we’d go back just for the vibes alone. The weekly menus posted outside looked really cool. We had a small menu to pick from being that it was Mother’s Day, which still had something for everyone. We did find service was lacking though. Our waitress came to take our food orders almost as soon as we sat down (hadn’t had a chance to look at the menus yet), then came back a few minutes later to reconfirm what we’d ordered and to ask if we wanted anything to drink as we hadn’t been asked yet. We were started with some pastry’s which we had barely started to eat when our meals came. One of the meals was entirely incorrect and so they had to wait for theirs to come. When it did come, we were asked if we were ready to order dessert. We asked for a few minutes so that our friend could eat their meal. Not two minutes later the waitress was back to ask about dessert again and said “in the interest of time, I’ll also bring the bill”. The entire meal felt very rushed. We hadn’t been seated for 30 minutes before we were brought our first bill. Both tables on either side of us were empty. My mom had ordered a second drink so the waitress had to remake our bill (which came before the drink did and before we were even half way through dessert ). For a $200 Mother’s Day brunch, we were rushed out in less than 45 minutes. We would try going back. I chalk most of it up to our server being very green, I hope.

    Food was delicious and our waiter was excellent. If we had a question about the food he went and asked (if he didn’t have the answer). He was never pushy about how fast we made a decision about ordering and allowed us to have as long as we wanted to relax after dinner. I love the ambiance of this restaurant.

    Went for drag brunch and it was a great time but we were seated in the back corner and half the time we couldnt see what the crowd was cheering for as we were in the back. Maybe for next drag brunch only seat people in the front bar area so that they can enjoy the entire pwrformance? Other than that we had a fantastic time.

    Food was delicious. The service was not good. Very slow, seemed like they’re forgot about us a number of times. waited a long long time for food. Brought us the wrong drinks and when we pointed it out, argued with us. I had ordered a dry, sparkling wine, received a sweet, flat wine and then told I was mistaken when I said I didn’t get what I ordered. It’s fine to make a mistake, everyone does, it was the arguing about it that bothered me. Had the sever apologized and brought us the right drinks right away, I would say that was good service.

    The restuarant has nice decor and good atmosphere. Unfortunately the night we went they must have been short staffed. Drinks took a very long time. Our server had too many tables, I sat with out a beverage for over 20 minutes, when we did order another around for the table it took a while to come. We would have had more drinks and even dessert if things did not take so long to get to our table. Overall the food was good. They definitely need more staff.

    The restaurant was packed when some friends and I went for dinner on a Saturday night. It was so loud between people talking and the music playing I could barely hear my friends or the waiter. Because of this they got my order wrong, but it was fixed quickly once I told them. Other than that, the food, service and ambiance was great!

    TWH never disappoints. Out for dinner before a show at the centre in the square and it was amazing. Food was excellent and the service was great as always. They had us in and out in lots of time so we were not rushed. Well worth a visit. If you are looking for a great evening out this is the place to go.

    Hadn't been here in about 4 years soi was anxious about the place. Server ( unfortunately didnt get his name) was a true professional who exchanged my appetizer without issue. In fact he insisted on changing it. We had the appetizer marrow, which was new to me and was excellent, as was my beef tartare ( after it was exchanged). The pork belly was so tender that you didnt need a knife and accomplishments were excellent. The restaurant was fully booked and became fairly noisy later in our meal but the tasty food and company helped us through the noise level. I will return.

    We stayed at the Walper Hotel and got brunch at TWH Social the next morning. The front of the restaurant was all full so the hostess let us choose a table around the corner in the back where we were the only ones there for most of our meal. This may be the reason we felt a bit forgotten. We waited a half hour for coffee to arrive and then my partner realized he didn’t get a spoon to stir his coffee. We didn’t see our waitress again for quite a while later when our food arrived and by then the coffee was cold. The food was good, I got the savoury Florence toast which was delicious but underdone and a bit soggy in the middle. My partner got the brunch burger which comes with a runny fried egg on it that makes all the toppings on the burger slide out of the bun. He also said it was delicious but difficult to eat. Overall the experience was good but lacking some details, including salt and pepper on the tables. I would still go back.
