Excellent brunch with great ambiance and jazz. A perfect place to enjoy a family outing in a fabulous location.
My friend and I really enjoyed our lunch here a few days ago. The waiter (Mark) was positively perky and very friendly and helpful. The food was hearty and very good. I've also been here a couple of times with a largish group, and we were very well taken care of.
Great food and atmosphere. Service was friendly but a tad slow. Granted, it was a busy Saturday night. Will definitely return.
Excellent experience as always! When we want consistency of all the elements of eating in a restaurant we head to the HH!
Nice, comfortable place. Butternut squash ravioli was so-so – the tomato sauce overpowered the squash filling. Good deal on cocktails. Service was excellent.
There are so many delicious items to choose from. The meals are beautifully seasoned with excellent pairings of ingredients. The ambience is always fun but it is quiet enough for easy conversation. I really appreciate the price point. A stellar meal without exorbitant cost. I return all the time although I live in Markham. Too bad your sister restaurant is on The
Danforth instead of in my area.
Great meal and nice touch that the manager came to our table to ask how everything was
We went for Winterlicious and absolutely loved our meals. Generous portions, delicious flavours.
Great restaurant. First time here and will definitely return.
Wonderful dinner for Winterlicious. My date and I found ourselves enjoying the food and meal enthusiastically. Looking forward to coming back to try the menu further.
Nice cozy place with great ambiance and attentive staff; food was good too.
Nothing was overly outstanding about the whole experience. Reasonable prices, food was fine (nothing to write home about, but no real complaints either, I could eat it again), but our server needs to improve.
He brought out a pate appetizer dish with no bread or toast to go with it. We waited to see if he was coming back with the rest of the dish. When it was clear that it wasn't happening, we had to flag someone else to get him so we could ask if we were really meant to eat pate and mustard alone. He mumbled something vague and quickly came back with a two slices of crostini. After the meal, he gave us the bill without being asked. If it was a lunch, I'd appreciate it because speedy service is a godsend when you only have 1h for lunch. But this was dinner. Are they trying to kick us out? The place was half empty and it was only 8:00pm.
Overall, not a bad experience but not the greatest either.
I had lunch with a friend. We loved the Winterlicious menu. I had the ribs and soup and my friend ordered the chicken parm and salad. All were very good. The hostess greeted us warmly and made us feel special. She even held the door as we left the restaurant. Highly recommend.
The dinner was, as always, excellent. The Hot House is a long-time favorite.
The waiter was incompetent. The food was horrendous . The manager was disrespectful and lacked common sense.
My friend and I go at least once a month to The Hot House. Our server was Dan, he's excellent and we are sorry to hear that he is leaving.
Fantastic experience. The gentleman who served us was very pleasant and professional. The man who greeted my girlfriend and I at the door immediately suggested for us to be seated in a nice booth.
Food is always good,
My friends and I go to Hot House often because it is one of, if not the only, restaurants near union station (convenient location for us) that can accommodate larger groups, is quiet enough for conversation, has a menu with lots of options, reasonable prices and tasty food. We love hot house!
It was very easy to set up the reservation via Open Table. We were a group of four and we were seated at a table near a window. The server was very friendly and patient. He offered many daily specials and recommendations. I’ve been to this restaurant numerous times and I always enjoy taking my friends here to eat. I will definitely come back!
As always, a reliable lunch with good service and great food.
Always a good experience.
Service was top notch ... Italian food is to die for. Fresh sauces and really looks and tastes home made
Big fan !
Hostess was not very helpful, did not show me to our table, just pointed to a direction that was unhelpful. The server we had luckily was nice. The buffet is lacking in quality and the price has gone up.
Hot House is nice for groups and meet ups. It can be very noisy on the weekends but at least they’ll probably have a live jazz band. Overall great experience and good food. Try it.
My wife and I both ordered Pizza Di Parma as our main course. The pizza was very tasteless, probably due to a complete lack of taste, or appearance, of tomato sauce. We had to check the menu to ensure it was an ingredient. Crust was good, could have used a touch more cheese and the ham was good. Overpriced for the product received.
A true gem in the St. Lawrence market neighbourhood. One of my favs.
Food was amazing !!
A friend and I met for lunch. She had never been to Hot House Cafe before. We were about to order an entree until we asked about the soup for the day. We had the most delicious cream of brussel sprout soup. It was hot, creamy, flavourful and filling and fabulous. So filling we decided to share a sandwich instead of the entree.
My friend and I decided to make our lunch a regular thing at the Hot House Cafe. I've been to this restaurant many times for various lunches, three times for Thanksgiving dinner and numurous other meals. It is very much my "go-to" place for good food!
There dinner buffet on Wednesdays is not as good as there Sunday brunch! Call ahead and make reservations this place gets busy fast.
First time at Hot House and it won't be our last. So many delicious choices that we are looking forward to our return. I had the ribs and my wife had shrimp and a salad. Arturo was our server and he was brilliant. Only next time was the hostess who lacked a warm welcome.
Sunday Brunch, & Jazz... wonderful food options, from breads, an omelette station, ( breakfast
choices, including bacon, sausages), healthy salads, hot entrees, such as lasagne, roast beef, etc., - all 3 meals & desserts at one time !!!
Did not have anything more that day, other than water, coffee, tea !
Good food, consistently delivered. Good menu choices at very good prices. Enough vegetarian choices to satisfy my daughter-in-law. Great staff.
always enjoyable, and a great buffet when available.
A few girlfriends went to the theatre and this was a nice walk from Ed Mirvish on a lovely summers day. The food is always good and the menu has great variety for all tastes. We all had Sangrias and they were delish! Two of had the rack of ribs and they were excellent. I have never been here for the regular menu before as I have always come for the brunch and I was very pleased. We all enjoyed our exprerience.
Our waiter, Arturo, was wonderful, managing to strike the exact balance of friendly, efficient and professional. He had a good understanding of the menu and was able to describe items perfectly. The food was very good but the restaurant is a bit noisy at times. We'll definitely be back.
Dinner buffet was great and staff were friendly! Very good service, always love coming to Hot House
Wanted to take my parents somewhere nice as they came down to the city to visit. It took 20 min to get our drink order (to be fair there were 2 weddings going on, the restaurant should have planned) and then it took another 10 min to get the drinks.
We gave ourselves an hour and a half (as we had a concert to make) and didn't have our meal order taken after 45 min. We had the menus closed and just felt very unattended.
Note to the restaurant is give your servers smaller sections or support. The food was good but service definitely lacked.
Met my cousins for lunch & shopping & ordered my usual G-F pizza . Delicious. Never disappoints ! Conversing was fine even tho my husband is hearing challenged ! Maitre d' at this place is a class act !
I've been to the Sunday Brunch at Hothouse several times, and loved it. We thought we'd try the restaurant for dinner, and were sorely disappointed.
The server seemed new and didn't have knowledge of the prix fixe nor the kids menu. My husbands entrée didn't come with the rest of the entrees, and we had to wait for a good 15-20mins to flag down the waitress - then she apologized because she'd forgotten all about his entrée! The kids menu came with a drink, and again we had to remind her about the fact and ask her to bring it. Both my husband and I got the prix fixe, and it wasn't worth the price we paid for it - the food was just average.
While we will return for their famous Sunday brunches, we will pass on regular meals at this spot.
