The food was okay, the chicken and waffles was disappointing. The service was really lacking, no body had been by our table since the food was dropped off. We sat with dirty stacked dishes in front of us for 10 minutes before having to ask for the bill at the bar.

Place was great, but drink were not so much. They had a set menu for drinks. Had to ask for something simple like a screwdriver and tequila sunrise.

Very good service, booked a reservation and were helped to our table quickly. The restaurant was quite loud which was fun, but at times could get hard to hear other people or the waiters. We got our food and drinks very quickly and the servers were all very nice. The tuna tartare was amazing and had a great balance of texture, flavour, and presentation. My partner got the fish and chips and they looked and were delicious, perfectly cooked and light and crispy. I got the steak frites with truffle fries. The fries were super crispy and delicious and the truffle butter was amazing with a great earthy flavour. Unfortunately my steak although delicious was slightly underdone and rare rather than medium rare. This wasn’t a huge issue as it was still yummy. Overall I would recommend this place and it is great for a night out with friends or a more energetic outing.

The food and drinks here are good. I enjoyed the Smoked Brisket Sandwich and the Collingwood Brewery Key Lime Sour beer. The server was friendly and attentive. The noise level inside the restaurant was loud, making it a bit challenging to have a conversation. We liked the large open windows at the front of the restaurant as we had a seat right by these windows.

Delicious food, great portion sizes, very friendly service - perhaps one of the better brunches I've had in a while. We will definitely be back!

Maybe our server just didn’t want to work Sunday brunch. Service wasn’t bad per se, just disinterested. Not welcoming. Not engaging. Not even friendly. But we received what we ordered in reasonable time, and the food was good so we chose to overlook the merely perfunctory service.

We asked for a booth and were told they had reservations, however, we had a reservation as well. We were seated by an open window and had to put up with the bees, while we were trying to eat. Over 15 minutes went by and we had to get up seek someone out and ask for a server. Extremely poor service, second time in a row. We won't be dining there again.

The upstairs patio was really big and the restaurant had a good and relaxed vibe. Service was great and the food was really tasty with good portions. The wait staff were attentive, knowledgeable and very friendly. Would recommend the Prohibition House as one of the best spots for casual dining in Leslieville.

Nice place. Good food at good prices. We both had the steak frites and they were divine -- I'd go back just for that. :)
We sat on the patio, and there were no wasps / yellow jackets at all! The staff have put out wonderful wasp deterrents, so we were able to dine in peace. That made it completely worthwhile for me, actually!
And the steak frites. I think I mentioned those. :D

The food was quite bad, sorry to say. I had the seafood spaghetti and the noodles were dry and more like Asian noodles rather than spaghetti. Really bad. The price was way too high for this level of quality.

The drinks, ambiance, and service were great.

we thought the kitchen would still be open but it unfortunately wasn’t, other than that it was cozy and the drinks were decent.

I loved the pan seared salmon. The only thing is, I wish it came with a little rice, like at most places.

The ambiance is good and the outdoor seating is very comfortable.

Very good staff and attention to customer wants.
Just had drinks and simple appetizers and found them good.
Back patio ends at a laneway where you get a nice neighborhood view but also trash bins attract wasps..they were infrequent and tolerable
Would go again.

The food quality is amazing, however their service is brutal! It took them 30 mins to bring our drinks which was beer! And one of the waitresses said that she can not divide the bill to three because it’s too confusing! Apparently everything was too confusing for them! But the quality of food made up for the bad experience we had with their staff!

Great place for food and drinks. However, our server forgot to punch in one of our orders so we had to wait a while. Nonetheless, they were able to fix it at no charge so I still recommend this place.

First time visitor. Date night. Came here for Oysters. They were fresh, and well priced. Drinks were excellent, the bartender was legit. I wanted to try everything on the menu, but we settled on arancini balls, tuna tartar, and nachos with brisket. Everything was great. Will be trying brisket poutine next time (and oysters of course! Again!). We sat on the patio at the back. Do note - it's likely going to be loud. There was a DJ corner inside, and we did go on a Saturday night, so if you're looking for nice and quiet, this isn't the place for that.

We picked The Prohibition Social House on a whim to celebrate our 29th anniversary and we totally enjoyed the food, staff, drinks and ambience. Our server, I believe her name was Brenna, was very friendly and attentive and helped us try new drinks that we probably wouldn’t have tried. All the staff were very friendly and the food was delicious.
