Scaddabush Italian Kitchen & Bar - Yonge & Gerrard Ratings and Reviews
I was really impressed. Cool vibes. Food was tasty. Service was fantastic. Our server was joking with us the whole time and everything was speedy. We were celebrating a graduation and our server definitely made it that much more special.
We went here because we were staying across the street at the Chelsea Hotel. We had 2 10 year olds and 4 adults. The kids loved drawing on the placemats and making their own Gelato sundaes. The food was great and staff was so accomodating. We showed up an hour early hoping to get in because the kids were starving after swimming. They fit us in no problem. The food was amazing. Such friendly staff. Next time we are in Toronto we would definitely go back.
Loved this place! My first time here but my daughters had been here a few times. Celebrating a graduation. Food was fantastic and service was great.
Quite the happening place! If you are looking for a quiet dinner you may want to go somewhere else!
Wheelchair accessible including an accessible washroom was also important to my family. We will definitely return.
Not great. The place is very loud. Basically just another big chain restaurant with a slight effort put into looking like an Italian restaurant. The pasta was under seasoned and the home made mozzarella was very chewy. There are many other Italian restaurants in the city that put a lot more effort into their food and ambiance. Overall this place was not terrible but definitely disappointing and not great value for the money.
I love the fresh mozzarella you have. Though the pasta selection isn't my favourite, I wish you had the classes spaghetti with tomato sauce - and more overall vegetarian options for pastas. Also wish there is better options for desserts, personally.
The food was awful. Pasta simply was not. Not sure what it was, more like dry string. Chicken dry and mealy...like it was microwaved. Dinner took too long. Wine was very expensive. We would never return ...a very disappointing meal and whatever it was it was not Italian.
My meal (shrimp spaghetti) was amazing, but others at my table were not as pleased. Scaddabush ran out of ravioli after we ordered, so two of the diners at my table had to reorder, and felt like they were rushed into placing their second-choice orders. One of the two does not eat pork, and was advised to have the baked carbonara sans bacon (sensible,) but was also encouraged to leave the poached egg off because the server (not the waitress we had for the rest of the meal) told her it wasn't good with it. They trusted him and ended up with what was basically a very bland mac n cheese. It was at least comped due to the ravioli outage, but still very disappointing. Not sure why the server assumed he knew how to make a better carbonara than the chef, but I don't see how it could have possibly been any worse with the egg.
Despite our waitress's best efforts (she was honestly great,) the service was so slow I can't give it more than one star. We only had 2 courses, and were in the restaurant for almost four hours. There was a massive party at the next table over (at least 20 people,) which could account for some delay, but four hours to order and eat a plate of pasta and dessert? Plus despite having been informed that many elements of the meal would be comped due to outages or slowness (1 mozzarella, 2 entrees, 2 desserts,) this was not reflected on the initial bill, and that had to be corrected at least twice.
Also this place was LOUD. I couldn't hear anyone at my table unless they were directly next to me, and I was extremely hoarse after shouting for four hours.
The shrimp spaghetti was really good, though, and I'd love to be able to eat it again, but I wouldn't come during prime dining hours (even on a Tuesday.) Perhaps the noise would be down to a dull roar at lunch. I also wouldn't come back with a group larger than 4, though 2 might be ideal to make conversation as easy as possible.
Overall my experience was only so-so. There were a few issues dining that evening. 1. Was dining with my sister, mom and aunt who were both 60+ but got seated at the high tops. And cause of age they both struggled to sit on their chairs. We also had shopping bags with us too. 2. There was 4 people but we only recieved 3 sets of menus. 3. It was definitely too dark. I couldn't read my menu at all. Had to use my flashlight on my phone inorder to make out the words on the menu. Service wise: I believe the hostess was inattentive. There were many 4 person booths opened that she could have sat us but gave us the high tops. I would be more understanding if the restaurant was full. But it wasn't on a Monday at 6pm. Our server did a decent job. I wouldn't say he went above or beyond. He did his job. Checked up on us a few times, answered all the questions we had about or menu, recommending the right porpotions, and made sure our jug of water was full. A server assistant offered larger sharing plates when she found out we were sharing all pur orders. Only issue was that my sister had to ask twice for chili flakes before it was brought. Food was delicious. I loved the buttersquash raviloi. The mario pizza was a fave as well. In total the table ordered 2 pastas regular size, a social size salad, and a pizza as well a side of charity bread. The total was aprx $93 not including tips. Rating overall is 3 and its mainly because of the food.
Service was great. Our waiter was awesome. The food on the other hand was just okay. The chicle parm bites were over cooked to the point that they were cardboard like. The use of oregano was overkill. It was in everything and way too much. Disappointing.
The music was so loud. We could barely have a conversation without yelling. It was also so hot that my jeans were wet when I stood up. The thermostat happened to be next to be and was set for 77 and said call for service...may want to look at that before the heat comes to stay. Our server was amazing and attentive. The food was good as expected.
I quite enjoy Scaddabush. I am one if their social club members and had recommended this location to a colleague for lunch as she wanted Italian. Service was good, our server was kind and helpful with suggestions and explaining menu items. If you're looking for a lunch spot that's a bit more than a sandwich and soup.. would recommend.
Went for mothers day. It was an overall great experience! We ordered pasta, which was amazing. Mine was the lobster pasta and i couldn't get enough. We also ordered the fresh mozzarella which came to the table still warm, and the charity bread which was like a focaccia with parmesan cheese. All amazing. The only problem was when we arrived they gave us a really small table which was hard to fit 4 people at even though i made a reservation. After asking they did change us to a larger table. The service was a bit slow but the waiter explained that they were a bit backed up in the kitchen, and was nice enough to offer us a free dessert. 10/10 would recommend.
Went for Mother's Day and it was very busy. Food took forever to come and wasn't worth the wait the food didn't taste very good at all!The pasta noodles were over cooked and the marinera was bland. Didn't eat the pasta but was so hungry Ihad to grab something good to eat from Salad King
Going downtown to eat at Scaddabush wasn't worth the time and effort.
1st time here. Great, friendly and informative service from all employees. Came with 4 girlfriends. Ordered pasta, pizza, salad and your signature dishes, handmade mozzarella and meatballs.
Everything was excellent. Will definitely come back. We all had a great evening!
Although the food was outstanding, the service was below subpar. The only thing I wanted was not delivered on - I made a request through opentable to have a dessert delivered after the main course with writing on the plate to surprise my companion, this was not delivered and we were not even asked if we wanted to order dessert.
