    We always love Hot House but this time 3 out of 4 of our guests got sick afterwards. One of which is still sick today. Maybe something went bad in the buffet.

    Good and service were great! Great variety for a brunch. Everything was fresh & very tasty! The jazz type band was lovely, though a hint loud at times as we were sitting in same section. Lovey was to spend a couple hours on a Sunday morning. Thank you!

    The vegan burger was very greasy. The salad was over dressed and soggy. Not good at all. The waiter was good and the restaurant was empty. I wonder why? Maybe a rainy day? I haven’t eaten at the Hot House for a long time, but I will not be back any time soon.

    We went for the Sunday brunch. The food was amazing. The only negative was that it was so noisy that we could not hear the live jazz music... I would ask to sit closer to the performers next time.

    Unfortunately did not enjoy our time here, sat down at 5:30 (we had a reservation at 5:45 but they were able to seat us early which was good) and then proceeded to sit there for an hour with no food, one jug of water for the table only and no starters were brought out once we ordered. When we brought this to their attention they checked on our food and brought it immediately 2/3 dishes were warm but unfortunately one was cold. We were now late for our plans so we had to eat very quickly. Food that was hot was delicious but couldn’t really be enjoyed due to how long we had to wait. Not sure what had happened and we understand that it was a busy Saturday, however we watched lots of tables recieve service and food far quicker. We have been here before and loved it hence our return. Unfortunately we don’t think we will come back again, the taste of the food is not worth the cost and wait.
