Amazing food and service, as always. I really feel that how they take care of their guests puts them apart from the other great establishments in the city. The inside dining and ambience is perfect.
Enjoyed our Brunch with friends. Excellent Eggs Benedict!
Very yummy food. They have done their best to make a patio which is lovely but right on king street so a bit loud. Service was ok.
Excellent. Great liquor drinks, food and service. They even had a wiser's special edition.
The server was super friendly. Congratulated us on our anniversary. My burger and the beef entree was superb!
We really enjoyed our Fri. Evening meal and overall experience at TWH. The food was unique and delicious. My wife loved the Caesar salad and the crispy salad! I really enjoyed the roasted garlic soup and the pasts with duck ragu. Service was friendly and on point. A great destination in downtown Kitchener !
We arrived during brunch, which was unplanned. We asked if there was any way of ordering off the evening menu, our host and the kitchen staff allowed us to make our sections from the regular menu. Very accommodating and always great food. Must try. Didn’t even mention the wicked ambience. Enjoy.
Overall food was okay. Presentation is poor. The bagel came out on a small plate that barely fit the sandwich- caused a mess. Asked for dairy free burger- had cheese on burger but they did change it. However family member still got sick after.
Made a reservation for 1 on a Thursday night for 7pm at a standard indoor table. When I arrived the place was virtually empty - there were 8 booth tables unoccupied but I was brought to the very back of the restaurant to sit in the only high top in the dark next to the open kitchen door and behind the AC - so it was hot, noisy, dark and uncomfortable. When I asked if I could be seated at the standard table I reserved, I was told those have been reserved. After my first drink order my server said I can see you’re uncomfortable, you’re making me uncomfortable, would you like to move. I said yes, and he then scoffed and said - fine I’ll figure something out for the other reservations when they arrive. Well guess what, only 1 other reservation arrived the entire time I was there - for just over 1 hour. So of the 8 empty standard tables I originally wasn’t allowed to sit at only got occupied by me and 1 other group. That was such a strange experience and felt like I was being punished because I was alone dinning. Super unfortunate.
This restaurant is severely underrated. We’ve dined many places in KW (both casual and fine cuisine) and TWH is by far one of the best. The food was presented wonderfully and tasted exquisite.
We’ve dined at Langdon hall, Cambridge Mill and many other notable restaurants and TWH Social is easily up there.
They also had a live musician play in the restaurant (who took requests) which really added to the experience and was such a nice touch as very few restaurants in the city offer this.
We enjoyed dinner so much, we came back the following day to try out their brunch and was surprised at how amazing our subsequent experience was. Food is consistently amazing. Short & simple menu was clearly perfected by the chef and the environment was intimate and great for dinner dates.
P.S. the mushroom Bruschetta is an absolute must-try
We will surely be returning.

Had a nice diner w some friends on the patio!
Thank you for joining us! Cheers!
The server was very friendly and professional. Attentive. The food was delicious. I have not had salmon so perfectly crusted and melt in your mouth for a long time! Caesar salad was really nice...hummus added a nice touch and the bacon was chunky and delicious. Fries were yummy and very fresh hand cut. Had the de-stress Empress cocktail...was lovely to sit and sip that on the patio! The patio was street side so traffic a bit noisy and ample opportunity for people watching. Look forward to sitting inside once we go to next phase of re-opening!
Thank you for the awesome review, we're so glad you had a great time. Cheers!
Very good food, the host was attentive to details and highly knowledgeable on the dishes offered by the restaurant. Drinks are something to try. The set up due to the current circumstances does not allow noise reduction
Good food, good service. Drinks are tad on the expensive side, but the good food and service make it worthwhile.
Thank you so much for visiting us. We appreciate the feedback and we're so glad you enjoyed your time!

Staff were excellent! Tables and patio area was keeping very clean. It was rather noisy because weekend with a lot of truck driving pass on King Street. Overall, drinks were good. We had a lovely time here. Patio in shade during lunch hours which was great!

Our server kinda sucked, which was really unfortunate for a pre-Father's Day celebration. However, the food was good and the atmosphere was sensational. I would return and request a different server.
Thank you so much for letting us know about your experience, this is certainly something we'll address with our team. We appreciate the feedback!
Very friendly service, great cocktails, delicious food (the portion sizes are just perfect). So glad to be returning to patios again!
Thanks for joining us on the patio - we're so excited to welcome guests back! Thank you for the incredible review!
Ordered drinks and appetizers. I thought the Walper Caesar was really good and well portioned. Our server was friendly and she was good at keeping an eye on our table. Overall very good experience :)
Thank you so much for the awesome review, we really appreciate it! We're glad you had a great time and we hope to see you again soon!
Impressed with TWH, especially for just re-opening. They put care into creating a great patio atmosphere, their burgers are fantastic and a good selection of craft beer. Service was enthusiastic and attentive.
Thank you for joining us on the TWH patio! Love being able to welcome guests back. We're so glad you enjoyed your time with us - thanks for leaving such an incredible review! We hope to see you soon!
Great food- patio is fun. It was our first chance to get outside for a drink and we’ll worth it.
Thank you for joining us, we hope to see you again soon! Cheers!
Very nice place, nice food and ambience overall. Highly recommended
We're so happy to be able to welcome guests back - we're glad you had a great time! Cheers!
Loved the live music, artist was amazing. Excelence service, food was good. Will repeat 😄
The food was delicious. Fresh ingredients and a good selection.
Very comfortable booths. Good service. Delicious soup of the day. The salt and pepper wings are the best of the three options.
Food was very average and underwhelming. Service was ok. Had a much better experience at other restaurants in KW this weekend (visited from out of town to check out the local spots).
Valentine’s Day dinner was lovely. Thanks TWH Social
Although the ambiance and service were excellent, the food left something to be desired. We had both ordered sandwiches but both were noticeably burnt. Mine was worse and I was unable to finish it. It was disappointing as it was my daughter's first time there. Also, someone had propped open the upstairs door and cold air was flooding the area around our booth.
There were big parties in the dining room, so it was a bit louder than we’d experienced before as we had to sit in the lounge. Other than that, everything was stellar.
We had reservations for 6pm and barely made it to our concert at 8pm. Entees took 30 min and we had to rush to eat it was disappointing to spend that much money and not enjoy our food.
We were seated very quickly in a not very crowded restaurant playing very nice music. The deco was very nice and it was quite clean.
However, after 30 minutes we had not been welcomed by any server or even asked if we wanted to order drinks. The maitre'd came over to check if we had been served but it was another 7 minutes before our server came. He was quite rude (stood by our table without speaking until we asked if we could order) even though he had come several times to the other tables he was serving during that whole time and was joking with those patrons. We ordered beers, water, and an appetizer to start.
Over 10 minutes later our beers came, without the water, and it was another 7 before we got our appetizer which was lukewarm (even though it was supposed to be toasted) and the caramelized onions on it were overly sweet and lacked texture. We never got our water, though our server brought water to the other tables.
We then asked for our bill and went elsewhere.
Blain our server was funny and excellent! Looking forward to the next time we go having music.
