We went for the first time to celebrate a friend's birthday. Everything was excellent. (However the music was a bit loud.) Great place for a social gathering with friends, family, and co-workers. Staff were friendly and nice. Go try it!

Great fresh mozzarella, made in full view. Service was excellent - efficient and knowledgeable, though didn't encourage any lingering. Pasta (butternut squash ravioli) was quite good though a bit unnecessarily rich (cream sauce).

Went to Scaddabush with my father-in-law for a belated birthday dinner and enjoyed it. The classic bruschetta was excellent - and the large is a lot of food! Not that we had trouble finishing it. My father in law had the calamari and said it was "pretty good" - not the best he's ever had but he enjoyed it. He also had the seafood pasta which again was pretty good, and the small was a good portion. Without the appetizers you might want the large but with, he was stuffed. I had the butternut squash ravioli, which I always love. I did get the large, because ravioli servings are always so small! This was more than enough though, and very creamy and sweet and savoury and delicious. It was quite loud in there, so we had a little trouble hearing each other from time to time. I'd go again though.

This was my first time at Scaddabush. My family went for Winterlicious. The food was awesome especially the mushroom and sherry soup which unfortunately doesn't appear to be on the regular menu. Too bad they should reconsider. The charity bread was tasty and the fact that they donate the cost to charity like Sick Kids and others is amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and will definitely go back. Wonderful first time experience, can't wait for the next trip definitely trying the fresh made pasta.

Seven of us dined at Scaddabush pre-concert, and having read the reviews on-line had anticipated good food and good service - I don't really feel we received either. The food was alright, but there are much better options at that price point in downtown Toronto. Our server tried to be engaging but fell extremely short, especially given the numerous errors in service. Scary part? She was training a new server - let's hope the new server won't actually try to emulate her lacklustre service. A number of us have worked in the hospitality industry and are patient, forgiving and understanding on many, many levels, but were disheartened by our service on Thursday night. Worst part? While we were anxious to wrap up our dinner and get to our show she completely dropped the ball on billing and payment. Needless to say we were late for the show.

Staff nice. Gelato rock frozen and unable to eat, including whipped cream. Frozen in dish, not plated for customer. 10 minutes later, still couldn't get a spoon in it. Sent it back and didn't return for another 10 minutes, dish was warmed. All about kitchen convenience, not customer. Only green beans as vegetable for all entries, although menu states "seasonal vegetables". No substitution and not in season, and not vegetables, but vegetable. You get what you get......too bad customer! Really average food, and desert was appalling. Won't return.

The decor is pleasing, creative light fixtures! Food however, mediocre and at times disappointing. Beet/goat cheese salad was greens with tiny teasers of beet and cheese morsels. Dressing far too tangy. Had to ask for more beets and cheese! Gluten free pizza came charred, so we asked our server to remake it and he tried to tell me they couldn't make it better so I should order something else. I said I didn't want anything else, but wanted to speak with the manager. I told the manager if they couldn't make it properly it shouldn't be on the menu. The manager handled the situation perfectly, made sure the chef 'babysat' my new pizza and it came perfectly baked. She saved my meal, but not enough for me to recommend this restaurant to anyone. Too many other great places to try in TO!

Went here for lunch with 3 other friends from work. 3 out of 4 of us were on limited time due to unexpected work demand. Our awesome server went above and beyond to ensure our meals came right away and she was very understanding and accommodating. The taste & quality of our meals and service were not compromised at all in all of this haste. Highly recommend Scaddabush Yonge & Gerrard.

Took more than an hour to bring my wife and I our entrees on a Thursday night and it wasn't crowded (there were empty tables). Within that time we heard their playlist at least twice and it was terrible and very loud. Because the music was so loud the waitress had to scream for us to hear her, which was very annoying.

As a foodie who travels and had a few Italian spots, I was disappointed. The good was not flavorful as it should be for their meatball speciality. Well I know you don't come to an Italian spot and order Salmon but I gave it a try. It was mediocre at best.
However the drinks were awesome and the service was great.

I would NEVER return to this restaurant.
We made a table reservation through OPEN TABLE...arrived for 6:45 pm on a Tuesday evening.
We waiting 20 MINUTES to even be acknowledged ~ we had 3 different wait-staff look and walk by us - never acknowledged - said hello, brought water - nothing.
Pathetic actually. Being in the hospitality service industry myself -- this is terrible.
It wasn't like the place was so busy that they couldn't have at least acknowledged.
Enough said -- would definitely NOT RECOMMEND

Went for NYE, place was packed but thank God we had a reservation. Hostess was very friendly and professional, smaller sized booth but perfect for just the 2 of us. Waitress was very attentive and helpful, drinks came fast and appetizer just as quick. Only complaint is the charity bread was bathed in garlic and kept reappearing throughout the night haha. Had the pizza and it was amazing, great crust and fresh veggies. Wife loved her pasta, and the tiramisu was amazing. It would've been just as great had we brought our daughter as it was a lovely family atmosphere. Will definitely be going back next time in TO.
