Second time coming to Shook, and the food was just as good as the first time! We sat at the patio, and the heaters were all out of propane but the quality of food and the friendliness of the server outshined the cold. Would definitely go back for more!

Special shout out to Santana! She's just the best! I don't think people pay attention to the notes I add when making reservations. Santana did. Very much appreciated! Food was great, very flavourful!

Food was really nice and well portioned. I was thoroughly stuffed after a collection of dishes. Wonderful flavours throughout.

However the music was terrible and too loud along with not enough light in our corner.

Food was a huge disappointment. We almost left everything on our plates. I went here when it first opened and it was so memorable. They changed the menu and quality of flavours and ingredients. Textures were off etc… won’t go back.

Beautiful restaurant with an open concept kitchen and fresh food. The quality of the food was great, using fresh herbs and pita bread baked fresh in the oven in front of your own eyes. Love that the menu is vegetarian. The hostess was friendly. The only negative aspect was the level of noise, but I wouldn’t dock any points for that.

Wonderful, creative and delicious food. Very kind and good server and service team.

Ceiling is very high and the music was loud so the acoustics did not lend themselves to having a conversation over dinner.

My friend and I had to shout at each other to hear each other. Likewise, it was very difficult to hear the server over the noise so she had to raise her voice too.

We would have stayed and ordered even more food and drinks but it was too unpleasant to shout and not be able to hear one another so we cut our night short.

If noise is difficult for you, I would recommend going to this restaurant for lunch when I presume the vibe would be less loud. And please do go, the food is amazing.

This restaurant is beautiful and feels very special. The open kitchen is unique and helps create the Mediterranean feeling. Service is wonderful and it’s neat to watch it be food being prepared in our peripheral vision. Some of the food on the menu needs to be explained by the server but she understood the whole menu and was able to facilitate my choice. Food was good and on next visit would like to go for brunch or try the dips. Overall an enjoyable restaurant experience.

Consistently good EVERY time! I've been here before the pandemic and I was so glad they survived the lockdowns because this place is amazing! I'm not even a vegetarian and most people I bring here aren't either but everyone loves the food and keeps returning.

Came here for brunch and was very disappointed with the quality of food. The service was not great, but understanding the circumstances that’s not what I’m rating my experience on. I ordered the Shook Fry Up…my halloumi was TINY and overcooked (it was tough). The “latkes” were 4 tiny deep fried and stale rice cubes (latkes should be potatoes). Served on the side of two sunny side up eggs. All for the price of $18! I would rather have gone to Sunset Grill. Save your money, go elsewhere.

Place was very busy and loud - and our server was great but maybe a bit too busy to be attentive. Food did not come all at once - not great. Teapots leaked everywhere. Mya at the front was very kind helping me find my vaccine receipts.

Loved the food and the service was really great and friendly - felt like we were long time friends. The table we sat at was a little too small and the music was a little too loud as my friend and I found it hard to hear each other sometimes. Overall great experience thigh and I'll definitely be back.

Second time here...Service was poor. Waitress shifted her attention to another table and forgot about us. Person who came to clean our table left half of it wet and dirty. We had essentially finished eating and forgot that one last entree was coming out...a shame that we couldn't eat it and compliment the other dishes. Half the table had dessert plates, while the other half had dinner plates (?). We were up sold on a carafe of a cocktail, but seemed very watered down (alcohol content was suspect). Overall, I wouldn't rush back.

The Green Shakshuka was extremely sour. Pancakes were super dry, we had to ask for syrup. We were given a wobbly table. As a result coffee spilt on friend's clothes. There was no accountability, as if it was our fault the table was wobbly. Should have at least replaced the coffee. Gave us food with no serving spoons...like come on. Try to serve Shakshuka with a fork! They were in such a rush to take away our utensils. Not bad but I really expected better considering the praise Shook has been getting.
