Scaddabush Italian Kitchen & Bar - Yonge & Gerrard Ratings and Reviews

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 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.

Ambience was amazing didn't even notice all the kids around us as we usually do at other restaurants.
The food was a little underdone for my liking (I had the carbonara). loved the stuffed Meatball. Next time going to have to try the mozzarella.
Staff were great to seat us right away even though we were 30 minutes early for our reservation. Our waiter checked on us every chance he could it got to be a little much at times as we were there for our anniversary and wanted the alone time.
OVerall I would be willing to give this place another chance.

Overall great experience, I brought friends who were visiting from Germany and they loved it! The service was excellent and very understanding with the language barrier, they did everything they could to make my friends feel comfortable.
I enjoy Scaddabush every time I go, great atmosphere and great food.
Its perfect for both groups and intimate dates with a significant other

Twice a year my husband and I come to Scaddabush for dinner after a Blue Jays game. We are from Ottawa and this is my favorite Italian restaurant to come to but last weekend July 23 we had reservations. Our server was the worst I've ever encounter in my life. It made my evening not pleasant at all. We basically ate and left as we usually have more drinks and stay longer but this time we did not.

This was our favorite restaurant while visiting Toronto. We even thought about going back for a second night. I would highly recommend the spaghetti and meatballs and anything with the fresh mozzarella. The DJ was playing great music. I only wish that we had room for dessert.

The place was extremely noisy, the waiter was very inexperienced and kept pushing the alcohol sales but actually knew nothing about the wine and gave wrong information on the Pinot Grigio in order to sell me a more expensive glass of wine. My friend ordered the smallest glass of red wine after he tried to convince her to go with the next bigger size. Then he brought the bigger size anyway. We pointed it out after we noticed it and he charged her for it anyway.
The food was mediocre at best. It was a summerlicious meal so they didn't seem to take much care with it. The bruschetta was tasteless. The red snapper was okay but the potatoes were dry as a bone and they could only spare to put 6 green beans on the plate! The Tiramisu dessert was full of Espresso flavour but nothing else so not very good. Sad because we had enjoyed a winterlicious meal there in February but things have gone downhill and I won't be back again.

We have been here before and haven't had many complaints. Unfortunately, this time around service was incredibly slow and there were a couple of hiccups with our order. My pasta was only 'okay'. It was definitely overcooked. Will be less inclined to suggest this place again for a gathering.

I wouldn't recommend this restaurant because I didn't have a special experience. It didn't stand out from other Italian restaurants. My colleague and I went there for Summerlicious . She enjoyed her burger, and I had the pasta. I don't usually add salt and pepper to food, but it was quite bland and so I had to resort to that. The service was great though, it just didn't stand out from any other Italian restaurant. I'm not opposed to visiting again.

I went to Scaddabush for the Summerlicious event and had an amazing time. I had the Pizza Fritta for the appetizer, Italian Burger for the entree, and the tiramisu for dessert. I really liked the appetizer and I would definitely come back to eat it again. I thought the Italian burger was delicious (really liked the balsamic vinegar) but it was way too big and I could not finish it. I didn't like the tiramisu because the coffee flavour was way too strong. I thought the restaurant's lighting was too dim as it was hard to see the surrounding area. Service was good, and the servers were polite. Overall, it was a good experience and I would come again.

The website had the incorrect summerlicious menu, so it was disappointing to see the options on the menu in the restaurant that did not match the website. They have since corrected the menu on the website. The restaurant wasn't crowded, but the service was slow for lunch.

They always have amazing food!!! Never a let down with any menu choice you make. Down side is that the service was very slow that night and took over an hour for our food to come out to us but our server was very nice and kept checking up on us to make sure we were doing ok. A little tip, if you are going to eat there make a reservation cause its always super busy and wait times are usually 35-40min, unless you sit at the bar then its faster

The food portion was horrible. Two of us ordered from the Summerlious menu. I would have gotten bigger portion if I ordered off regular menu. I was also told I couldn't get the chicken on the side because they can't deviate from set menu. Meanwhile I saw the same dish at a different table, the chicken was placed on top of noodles (I would been content with that. Waitress should of knew). I won't be returning.

Food was good for a first time visit but the restaurant was not able to handle a summerlicious menu when a number of larger groups were on site. It took 2.5 hours for lunch. This was way too long when people have to get back to work. The manager did try to right the situation for us but the time was lost as a result. I would not go back for lunch but if you are looking to go for a leisurely dinner or are not in a hurry, then I would recommend.

Took my sister here for her birthday dinner. I had put a note on my online reservation to put a candle on her dessert, when I got there I also asked the hostess, she asked if I could tell the barman or if she should tell him, I asked her to tell him because our table was near the barman and I did not want my sister to see. The desert came without the candle!! I had to tell the waiter in front of my sister, ruined the surprise.
We had the summerlicious dinner, I had the salad which was really good, the main and desert nothing to shout on rooftops about.
The bill also came wrong though the waitress apologized and had it changed.
Overall, it was not bad but wouldn't go again.

I came on a Saturday afternoon (around 2:30 pm). The restaurant was somewhat empty but it had a great atmosphere. It took the hostess a minute to sit us down and our server showed up less than a minute after we sat down at my table. I ordered from the summerlicious lunch menu. I ended up having the pizza fritta, italian burger and the strawberry sundae. I also had spicy bread to add some kick to my meal! Overall, the meal was delicious, very filling and the price was very decent for such great food. ($18) I will definitely be coming back!
