Lovely little gem in Kitchener - the decor was gorgeous, the servers were very friendly and helpful (shout out to Tina, who went above and beyond), the food was great (mixed and shared the sweet and savory French toasts, both very excellent choices) - it was a very nice place to go on a date and get to know someone for the first time. Highly recommended.

My meal was delicious, one of the best i've had, kudos to the chef. It was beautifully plated and melt in your mouth good. For $26 it was very decently priced. The ambience was soothing and the live singer was right beside us but not overwhelming. Server was very friendly and competent. Will def come back here.

The food was excellent as was our server. The bartender came and checked that a certain liquor was acceptable for a cocktail that was ordered. Very pleased and will go there again.

We are vegetarian. The Root Vegetable Pave (which we both had) was not that tasty. We love the Social otherwise but will likely only be back for drinks and appetizers in the future.

We had a wonderful time!! Our server Marina was who most patrons would hope for!!
I ordered the breakfast sandwich and added a fruit cup, delicious! The sandwich was piping hot and very tasty!! Very filling! The fruit cup was fresh and tastefully garnished
My friends had eggs Benedict and yogurt parfait which were reportedly delicious!!, their orders looked wonderful!!
We hadn’t seen each other for quite a while so spent a lot of time chatting
Our server was attentive but certainly respectful of our conversation!!

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.

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!

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
