Great service , great food!
Once again, the service was great. Great location to eat before a show. You must save room for dessert and try the Smores.

Great spot, no worries
Not a single complaint. Food, service, pricing and efficiency were all better than average. We were running late and it was no issue to slide the reservation and they had us out in plenty of time to catch our show. Staff was pleasant and attentive without being annoying. We'll be back.

This is my go to spot pre- theatre. It is gem in an otherwise tourist trap. Food is solid, desserts are borderline divine in their simplicity. Highly reccomend the lobster tacos and lobster grilled cheese. And their sweet potatoe fries are perfect. Smores rock, the skillet cookie near blew my mind.

Great Pre-theatre dining
We had a wonderful dinner before seeing the Book of Mormon. Our waitress was wonderful, very engaging. Water glasses always filled. It was a great meal. Mix of appetizers and salads - lobster tacos, vegetarian spring rolls, Thai Crunch salad (my personal favourite) and make your own s'mores at the table for dessert. Very clever and super yummy. Many other wonderful menu items. a favourite is the lobster grilled cheese!

Perfect Pre-Theatre Restaurant
I went to Hush for a pre-theatre dinner. I had the lobster grill cheese sandwich which was delicious. The next day I was still talking about the meal with my husband! The staff were attentive, but not overly so. We did not wait long for the food and it was reasonably priced. I would definitely go back and possibly check out their rooftop patio which I did not get a chance to see.

Nice menu variety. Meals were well presented and proportional in size. Meats were cooked as requested while service was prompt and polite. Atmosphere was enjoyable and would feel comfortable dressed casually or upscale. Prices were competitive with upscale chain restaurants but with better quality ingredients.

I made a reservation for the patio but when we arrived the waitress told us there was no table left at the patio so we sat inside. Two minutes later she walked is to the patio where se had made room for us.

Sleek and classy
Several colleagues and I visited Hush for lunch last Friday. It was pretty much empty until we arrived but that's understandable since it was a little past normal lunch hours, plus it was the Friday of a long weekend. The food was pretty good, although there were some people that weren't satisfied. The problem was that there was only one server and by the looks of it one cook, which is why the food took longer than normal. My steak was a very good cut; low amount of fat, tender, and juicy. I ordered medium-rare but got medium, however it was still very good. We passed on the roof-top patio because it was a little chilly but will definitely be returning on warmer days for some drinks.
I give Hush Restaurant a 4 out of 5 in my books.

Lovely spot. Great menu
We were a group of four with meat eaters and vegetarians. Good selection for both. We were celebrating an anniversary and the restaurant provided a lovely desert for the table. It is also wheelchair accessible which is very nice. We will b back. Dinner for four with wine, three appetizers four mains and three coffees was 200.00. Quite reasonable.

Hush restaurant has excellent food and service, in a lovely ambience. We eat there whenever we have tickets for the Princess f Wales theatre. A nice mean before the play makes our evening complete!

Excellent food and service.
Excellent food and service. Ribs were amazing... so were apps. Very attentive wait staff. Great for pre or post theatre.
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hush worked well for a pre theatre dinner at the Princess of Wales. Very varied menu - lots to choose from and well priced. Our server, Richard, was an Irish gem - excellent service, charming, perfect balance of friendliness without being intrusive. We will go back.

Made this carnivor happy
Made early (5:45pm) reservations. We were taken to a table right away. Wait staff was very attentive and quick thruought our meal, probably because the evening dining crowd was not yet in full-swing. We had the 10 oz prime rib with sweet potato fries and the 7 oz tenderloin with roasted potatoes. As mentioned by other reviewers, it took some time to get to us but was well worth the wait. Meat was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Portion size was just right (we had no appitizers or dessert) to feel full but not overly bloated for an after dinner stroll to the waterfront. Would definitely recommend Hush for anyone able to take time to wait a little bit for a really good meal at a very reasonable price.

I went with a group of 5 and once i entered the restaurant the staff were very accommodating. I had booked reservations indoors but they quickly agreed to set us up in the patio. I adore their patio. It's kind of a hidden spot. Not too much of a view, but to have it in the middle of the city was great. Awesome atmosphere. My friends and i highly enjoyed our meal and dessert! Lastly, it did start to sprinkle during our stay, but again, the staff were very accommodating. Great experience, so check it out and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Had no expectations going in but was pleasantly surprised by the food and wine.
Great looking dining room and bar. Rooftop patio looked nice as well.

Don't keep it hush, Hush.
This establishment is an excellent find, where the criteria is based on 1) food, 2) service and 3) atmosphere/setting.
1) There are noteworthy, well portioned food creations available to eat - grounds for "Foodies" to explore.
2)The service was 5/5 - friendly, knowledgable staff, who are proactive with checking up on the customers and flexible, in terms of seating and menu items (customization - catering to the individual.)
3) There are diverse environments found within this venue. There is the conventional restaurant setting, bar/lounge scene and a beautiful oasis found on the roof top patio that looks onto the active city-scape.
& this is all conveniently located in the downtown city core. Spread the word!

Rocky Start, But Evened Out
We visited Hush to say goodbye to a coworker. We were seated right away, but a large group had arrived before us leaving us without lunch menus for about 10 minutes!
Despite the large group, once we ordered the food came quite quickly. I ordered the Thai Chicken Roll-Up, but I discovered the wording on the menu was quite misleading. It mentions that it is "...chicken wrapped with fresh lettuce" so I thought it would be a lettuce wrap (it wasn't). Thankfully, the waitress was great about it and brought me lettuce leaves to put the chicken/rice in, as I try to avoid bread wherever possible. There ARE other lettuce wraps on the menu, so I guess I got them mixed up.
The drink menu is amazing. Pineapple mojito = to die for!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved sitting on a patio in the middle of the city! The menu selection was wide, we were 4 people and each of our dishes was a hit! The prices are also very reasonable, I would go back there again. The only 'downer' was the waitress who did not appear very friendly until tip time, a minor blip compared to the overall experience.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is my second time at Hus and in both cases, I thought the food was yummy and the service was good. I have eaten in the dining room and the upstairs patio and I enjoyed both experiences.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Superb service. Charming waiter. Lovely ambiance. Delicious food. Doesn't get better than that.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our theatre nights are never complete without dinner at Hush. We love everything that we've tried on the menu and wish that you were in Hamilton so we could visit more often. The only thing we were ever disappointed in was the pear and goat cheese salad. While the pear was delicious and the cheese was plentiful, we found the greens to be too few and not enough dressing for our liking. I did end up finding a clump is dressing on the greens that were on the bottom of the salad, but by then it was too late since I had eaten most of it already even though it was pretty dry. It won't prevent me from returning though. :)
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'll be back!
First time experience at Hush and enjoyed it immensely. Took advantage of the lunch specials and found the decisions difficult as so many excellent choices to decide between. Fish and Chips plate was outstanding and the Wicked Thai soup was out of this world. Definitely a restaurant worth returning to!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
HUSH...quiet before word gets out
Great little spot for a late nite bite after theatre, with a very cool roof top patio until the weather turns...excellent sharing plates....and great staff.
9/8/2013 5:00:00 PM
Classy and Affordable
Great affordable food. Very nice ambiance for a nice dinner with a small group of friends. Would recommend this restaurant it's delicious.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great dining experience
I had never been to HUSH before nor had I ever reserved a table with them online. I was pleasantly surprised when I got there. Our table was already set up when we arrived in a nice spot by the front patio. The server was attentive for the whole meal and the food itself was great. On Sundays you have the option between Brunch and Lunch menus. I decided to go with lunch and the portions were perfect. Some restaurants tend to give you way more than you can eat but the lunch portions were just what I needed to be satisfied, but not stuffed.
I'd definitely recommend this spot if you're looking for somewhere to have lunch/brunch on a Sunday afternoon.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
More the happy
Our first visit to Hush, celebrating our wedding anniversary before heading to the theatre. We had reservations but showed early and were seated without hesitation.
Our waiter was fabulous, very attentive and more then happy to explain menu items and give his opinion on what his favourite dishes were.
We took him up on his suggestions and dinner was FANTASTIC!!
Would definitely go here again!!

Theatre night treat
We had an early dinner prior to our theatre night and thoroughly enjoyed everything. The food and wine were outstanding plus the service was great.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for sharing
Two girlfriends and I shared 3 different appetizers (prime rib poutine, mung thai nachos, chicken lettuce wraps) they were delicious! The martinis are also good...some stronger than others. You MUST try the s'mores for dessert. It's a cool experience and of course there's always room for s'more :)
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Before theatre dining
Location was prime motivator in reserving at this restaurant for a pre-theatre dinner. Menu has a good mix of lite fare versus
full dinners. Vibe is cool and service was friendly and attentive. Would definitely book there again.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM

So happy to discover this
So happy to discover this gem. Great atmosphere... cozy & current. Food was great all around at the table... Fish taco's were amazing. Service was outstanding - friendly and attentive! Would definitely plan another evening here.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for dinner before attending the theatre. Great location. Food was good with the exception of the prime rib. Bit on the dry side. Overall, nice place for dinner.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service, great food!
I had plans to watch I Love Lucy Live on Stage on Sunday November 3rd and looked online to find a restaurant nearby for us to eat before the show. My mother, my sister and I loved this place from the moment we walked in. They reserved a table for us right by the window which we loved. The service was quick and efficient and the food was absolutely delicious.
We would definitely recommend this to our friends and family and we plan on going back sometime soon.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
I won't Hush up about this place
A wonderful dining experience was had by all in my party. The service was friendly, organized and timely. We had a table right by the window and it was lovely to see the TIFF Lightbox Theatre all alight. The food was excellent. The items ordered at our table were the Thai chicken roll up, the chicken flat bread sandwich, the shaved prime rib sandwich, and the chicken lettuce wraps. Everything arrived hot and fresh. The side salads were great, this may seem a minor point to some but if you order them often enough you know what I mean, they were actually fresh and substantial. Everything was well seasoned and the meats were tender and juicy. A great place to take people from out of town before a show.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun night out
I had a great time at Hush. The atmosphere was fun and upbeat and the food was delicious. I would recommend the Thai salad and the bloodhound drink! I would go back for sure!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went here post theatre for an early dinner and it was a great experience. The food was terrific (I had the loberster grilled cheese and others had the fish and chips). My only complain could be that the service was very slow considering the restaurant wasn't busy when we first arrived. We finished with the smores which I highly recommend just for the fun of roasting your own marshmallows inside.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I took my boy there last night
I took my boy there last night for a surprise dinner before we head to SPiN.
I made a reservation for 6:45 however it was not busy when we arrived. The place is cozy with very nice decor.
The Prime Rib poutine was amazing.
I had the While Wine Moscoto - amazing and smooth
I had the Prime rib - a little under cooked but still good
He had the Parmigana Chicken - very good as well.
Although we were stuffed from our meals we had to try the smores.
I RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYONE!!!!
You make it yourself by a portable fire pit
WOULD DEFINITELY GO BACK!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
would go again
Made a reservation for fairly early in the evening for a pre-show dinner as this place is really close to Princess of Wales Theatre and am glad I did. The restaurant was already quite busy. A busy restaurant is something I always take as a good sign and I wasn't disappointed. Nicely decorated, good food....something for everyone...and very good service. All in all a very good dining experience.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
There were 4 of us and we all loved the food that we ordered. Staff are very friendly. Food came a little slower than expected though. But overall a great experience!
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hush impressed me
This was my first time at Hush, and we went out as a group of 7 people. The restaurant is well set-up, for both small and large groups. The staff was great and the menu created a blend of traditional dishes with unique ingredients. For example, the nachos I ordered for the table (Mung Thai Nachos) were made of wontons - delicious! And my chicken flatbreak sandwich was quite good!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
I'll be back... sooner than later!
We had a ladies' night out to kick off the holiday season. We ordered chicken, steak and salmon between us and all enjoyed the other's selection; fresh, juicy, succulent, flavourful. Even when I changed my mind, 10/15 mins after ordering, the kitchen was able to accomodate. They do go out of their way to provide a lovely experience out; our server had no chip on her shoulder, and was sincere and hardworking (the resutarant was packed) - she never interrupted and never left us waiting either.
When I return, as I will definitely find an occasion to, I will ask to sit in either the front or the back of the restaurant (the middle becomes quite busy!).
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Yummy food & great service
Not sure why my expectations were so low for this spot but they were exceeded many times over. Everyone found something on the menu to suit their tastes - reasonably-sized servings, interesting takes on old favourites - and we were all thrilled with our choices. We were running late for a show and they accommodated us very nicely with excellent and attentive service. We will definitely visit again.
