Hush Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Usually have a good dining experience at Hush. This time all cooked food was over cooked and Americano coffees were just warm. My wife left 3/4 of her meal for being overdone. Waitress told. No attempt to compensate was made or asked. I guess everyone has their "Off days". Will we return? Of course unless this service and quality become the norm.
Food wasn't overly amazing. I had the seafood linguine as my main, was not much flavor to it. The app was Thai chili chicken and I cannot complain about that, it was quite good in comparison. Service was very attentive and kind. Atmosphere is rustic/modern and sparks a romantic setting.
Great food! Shared the beet salad, entrees were salmon and tenderloin. All the food was very good. My beef did not come with the jus /gravy but it was quickly brought to me when asked. Also had to ask several times for drinks.
Staff was extremely friendly.
It was quite busy as it was a Saturday night and that might be the reason for the jus / drink issue but the restaurant is in the heart of the entertainment district, the should be ready for those busy periods.
Truly could not have been worse. We chose this restaurant as it was close to the theatre. We got there at 6:30 and ordered promptly. Our dinner arrived at 7:30. We were due at the theatre at 8. The waitress explained that it was difficult as everyone comes in at once ( it is the theatre district). We were seated at the back and it was very cold. We asked about the heat and the waitress commented that she was sweating. Shortly after the manager turned the heat on ( it is February and Toronto is having a cold snap). My husband ordered a burger. It came completely over cooked but, the fries were ok. Would not recommend.
The waiter was very friendly and helpful however the poor quality food ruined the experience for me at least. Ordered fish and chips and it was the worst ive had. Tasted stale and refried. Got a chicken parm as a replacement but while it tasted better it seemed undercooked
Nice decor. Good friendly service. Reasonable range of beer. Not sure I could spot any lobster in the lobster taco. The fish and chips was the worst I've ever had. It was more like a battered fish slushy that tasted of old lake water than anything that came from the sea. But the creole chicken was fine. Ok for a quick bite before a show and great location.
Our server had to be prompted to provide water, dessert menus and I believe our food may have sat for a while before being brought to us. My friend's salmon was overcooked and my chicken was dry and the crispness on the underside tells me it cooked for too long. I would have sent it back but we had theatre tickets and I could not take the chance of having to wait as long to get the replacement as I did the original.
Good location for theatre. Interesting menu selection. The main issue was the server. When I asked to substitute fingerings instead of potato salad. . I was questioned on why I wanted to change and why I didn't like potatoe salad...it was an advertised option so I didn't feel that I had to justify. That was only the tip of the "attitude" iceberg.
Had a company dinner here with 8 guests and the service was awesome. We were taken care of the entire evening and the food was very good. There is a great selection on the menu as well so we found that everyone was able to find something that suited their personal tastes.
Service wasn't great - had to keep asking for the waitress to come to our table. One person had the salmon and said it was bland, 2 had the creole chicken but one said the chicken was overcooked and the other one said it was fine, one person had the beef tenderloin and they said it was very good. One person had the seafood linguine and said it was bland and it had 2 little shrimp in it that tasted like they had been frozen. Could not believe a restaurant did not serve regular decaf coffee. We had been to Hush maybe 2 years ago and it was good but it has gone downhill. Wine prices for a glass of wine are too expensive for 5 oz. compared to other restaurants in the area.
Great restaurant for before theatre, especially The Princess of Wales. Food was delicious. I had soup which was great. Fish and chips looked fantastic. Salmon also looked good.
Service was excellent, and thankfully the noise level low. Would go back again, and would recommend to friends.
Hush was a perfect place for three out-of-town friends to meet before a Wednesday matinee at The Princess of Wales theatre. Comfortable, quick and pleasant service. Good food. Pleasant environment. Just wish I didn't have to descend "black" stairs to the bathrooms!
Went here with a party of 8, three of whom have food allergies. Large parties can be challenging, as is, but adding in food intolerances even more so. The staff was great! Attentive to the special needs and friendly. Service was quick, food was great, and the atmosphere was comfortable.
Stopped into this restaurant for dinner while alone on a business trip. The host/hostess were not particularly friendly but the waitress was lovely. My meal was quite good. Had the thai chicken soup which was a bit different than others that I have had. Enjoyed the spicy kick it had. The lobster grilled cheese with gravy fries were great but quite heavy as you can imagine. Would definitely recommend.
We came here for a bridal party gathering. The waitress came at the beginning to give us water but didn't show up again after. The food took way too long to get there, and I had to go find our waitress, she then saw the food being served and just walked away. Then one of the orders were wrong, we said there was supposed to be smoked salmon on the plate, and the server simply said "no". After we disagreed he said "well I'm new to this menu". The food was below average and the overpriced for what it was. No one came by after, and we had to flag someone to come give us our bills. I felt terrible because I chose this place for our group to go to. Never again.
Reservation seemed to confuse host. Lack of available staff, seemed like only 2 people working there... Got my order wrong and did not offer to compensate. Did not refill waters. Did not check on table frequently enough (see shortstaffed). Food was dry and bland. Pricing was higher than nearby establishments.
We attended Hush for dinner as a group of 10 people on a summer team building event. We sat in the lower bar area where there was a huge very cool wood table with finished bark around the outside so the table still had the shape of the tree. The food portions were large and very good for the price. Staff were friendly and professional and service was prompt. The washrooms on the lower level were just OK, nothing to write home about. I would not hesitate to return to this restaurant.
We went for summerliscious dinner last Sunday. It's kinda you pay for what you get. It's cheap for 3 courses dinner but the food was so so. The berry yogurt parfait was a disappointment. It was served with plain yogurt and frozen berries. I won't serve that to a friend. The lady server was very nice and let us even stay for 2-3 hours to chat.
I went in for Summerlicious for dinner for a double date. My friend ordered a Sangria drink special which tasted pretty good. I started off with the Confit Duck Salad, while my bf had mussels. There was no bowl to put shells in for the mussels, and barely anything in the salad. Risotto was not bad; the swordfish dish was just ok, but the avocado roll did not taste good at all . For dessert, my mixed berry parfait was completely inedible, I couldn't even swallow it. My bf's creme brulee was a much smaller portion than my friend's, so he felt ripped off and the heating consistency was uneven as well. Overall food quality did not meet our expectations, so we left disappointed. Not planning to come back.
Good ambiance, nice decor. Went for lunch and ordered from the summerlicious menu. There were 3 of us, so we ordered one of everything. Appetizers were good, but entrees were all too salty. There was one dessert out of the three options that I could say was special. The other two were just, meh. Service was sooooo slow. The apps came out fast, but there was such a long delay for the entrees and then desserts.
Took my family visiting me from out of town for summerlicious, and now I'm embarrassed! The food was extremely salty, and the oil for the french fries was dirty. (I know what dirty oil looks and tastes like) I asked to substitute the fries for veggies and received an over cooked TINY portion of veggies. (Glad they could accommodate, but the portion was almost insulting & again over salted) Beyond everything else - the service was terrible! Can't believe this place made it to summerlicious :(
