Scaddabush Italian Kitchen & Bar - Yonge & Gerrard Ratings and Reviews
Terrible food. Slow service. Our appetiz ...
Terrible food. Slow service. Our appetizer came after more than an hour. My gluten-free pizza was so disgusting I sent it back to the kitchen and left to buy $10 takeout at a nearby fast food jamaican restaurant which tasted better than anything here. My friend's spaghetti and meatballs tasted worse than chef boyardee, which is why I declined the server's offer to order something else. Had such high hopes for this place. What a disappointment. They had good music.

My wife and I were in Toronto on vacation recently. We were looking for a place near our hotel, did some web searching and found this restaurant. The food was excellent, as was the service, and the prices were reasonable.

Our server seemed fairly new and nervous, albeit very nice and personable. She mistakingly punched in an incorrect main order, a chicken parmesan sandwich instead of a stuffed meatball sandwich. When the wrong order was delivered, our server did not approach the table for 10 minutes. She had also forgotten to deliver drinks at this time as well, when they came they were wrong. When I told her about the meal mistake she did go to correct it immediately but my party were already finishing their meals. The new sandwich did not take long, but it was still not right, it was the regular meatball, not the stuffed (I didn't say anything). It came lukewarm, but seemed edible. That evening my stomach felt quite off, and for the next two days I had terrible food poisoning and associated symptoms. I can only relate it to the meal here, as I had else out of the ordinary.

Great food! My all-time fav was 'brick chicken', but that is no longer on the menu. The server suggested 'chicken limone' as a substitute and it was fan-tabulous!! It took all my will power to NOT lick the plate!!!
My husband had the chicken parm and he said it was one of the best he's had! He also wanted to lick the plate and we had a good chuckle about it.
The one thing I would change about our dining experiences at Scaddabush is getting to pick an area we would like to sit in. I guess we could always ask our server to move us, but we always seem to get seated in the back corners, away from the action. Not a big deal though.
The food makes up for it!

The menu, staff and atmosphere is beyond what I expected. We ended up sharing our meals. "Try this!" Every item was unique and full of tastiness! My mother enjoyed her 82nd birthday. My Aunt who came in from Calgary (world traveller) asked the Executeve Chef "When are ya coming to Calgary?" She's taking a copy of the menu back home.

None of the options allowed for "Noise Level" fit my experience, however the survey does not allow you to bypass the question. I was forced to choose energetic, being as the noise level was definitely not quiet or moderate. My only complaint about my dining experience is that the music was too loud at the dinner hour, making it difficult to hear everyone around the table when they spoke.

After visiting the Scarborough Town Centre location and having a great experience, I was very disappointed with the downtown location. The server forgot to punch our drinks, so it was about 15 minutes before we got them, or she took our order. My Burra Burrata mozzarella arrived cold, we had to send back the lobster pasta as it was a very small portion (compared to other location) with minimal lobster. It was better when replaced. Our sautéed mushrooms were overseasoned with what I believe was rosemary, and I had to send them back as well. We waited ages to get the new order, so the other food was getting quite cold by the time. We found the entire experience very underwhelming, and we will not be returning or recommending this location of Scaddabush.

The food was too salty and pasta overcooked. Two meals were not edible. The service was terrible, Our waiter appeared to be on some kind of drug, forgetting many things, constantly repeating himself and appearing very confused.

Second time around, somewhat disappointing. Had the baked penne carbonara, would not recommend unless you love pepper or they change the recipe..way too peppery! Wrong meatball delivered for my friend (stuffed vs not)..
Our server (Anna I think) was extremely nice, patient in answering our questions and very helpful. Comped my meal (appreciated) and offered desert (zepoles)...appreciated these gesture, will most likely give them a 3rd try 😀

I love Scaddabush and have come here on many occasions. Unfortunately on this evening, the service was very poor - we waited forever to receive our drink and food orders, which took away from an otherwise great experience.

Not a very good experience. Floor was dirty by the table that we were given, had to ask the staff to clean it up. Food was not very good, had to send back my main course and dessert was not good, wanted to send that back also.

Food took a long time coming, sandwiches were more bread than anything else which was surprising for the price point. One person's sandwich ended up on floor during delivery so service was delayed even further. When that sandwich came, bacon was still raw. One meal out of three was comp'ed. Would not rush back unfortunately. Great location, décor, etc.

Enjoyed our time at Scaddabush. It's a lively restaurant with pretty good menu. The fresh mozzarella and burrata is always good and we enjoyed the mixed drinks--sangria and sophistocato were yummy. Pasta and steak were done well and good sized portion. Unfortunately the service was fair at best--very slow and ordering was challenging. They did provide a free appetizer due to the extensive wait however which was appreciated. Would definitely return, hopefully the service improves though.

I had booked a reservation, but upon arriving on time, we were told the table had been taken by another server. Our server was particularly inexperienced, spilling two drinks while setting them on the table. He was disorganized, asking for drink, appetizer and meal orders all at once. He seemed unfamiliar with the menu, and he spoke way too fast.

Food is fine, service is way too slow (claimed back up at bar?) , tough to run down a waiter/waitress and when the food came, the server put all the wrong meals in front to people.
We made a reservation for a regular level table, But were put first in the bar area (which we asked not to have), ,then ultimately at at a high level table in the back restaurant part.

I ate the lobster linguini and suffered the effects of food poisoning...the effect was fairly immediate and i was close to the restaurant's bathroom. I am not allergic to seafood so that is not a factor. I am ok now.

Calamari was a disappointment.
The lobster pasta was not worth the money, it is good but the sauce was very little and not much lobsters.
Other stuff might be better but it seems I got the wrong things.
Will not give up on them yet, will try it again in the future.
Food and service did not meet expectatio ...
Food and service did not meet expectations set from other reviews I had heard. Pasta was overlooked and under seasoned although the meatball was tasty. Calamari was almost like chewing rubber bands. I would have sent it back but we waited so long for food, we were starved by then.
Can't say it would be worth a repeat trip. We were a table of 3 and food took forever to come out.
