Excellent service by Ian, gourmet sandwiches (blackened fish, the other was short ribs) amazing. Great playlist in the background. 1/2 price bottles of wine Thursday. We loved it!

Horrible service. Wouldn’t serve us despite being sober. Total power trip. Won’t ever visit again. The worst.

Stopped here for a drink with a friend. The drink menu is extensive and unique. The service was great! Definitely a great spot that I would visit again.

We often go to White Rabbit before a show at Starlight or at the Princess Cinema. They have a fabulous cocktail menu and their appetizers are divine. Live music Saturday afternoons are fun. Highly recommended.

Stopped by here for drinks with a friend and my wife. Fridays are busy, and we had to wait at the bar for awhile, but eventually we got a table. The staff were great. We experimented with exotic cocktails, suggested by the staff. Great all...around, one in particular with beet juice and gin was a big hit. This place is small, but a great, cozy place. We will return.More

We ate dinner here on a Saturday night. We made reservations just to be sure to get a table, but there were still a few tables available for walk ins. The atmosphere is cozy and good music playing. They had 2 tables that were right...next to the table where they punched the orders in and kept plates, etc so it was very awkward when the staff went there as they were literally right beside me….they really need to move this staff table! We had the pork dumplings to start which were tasty and my husband had the ribs which were excellent. The mac and cheese was pretty good as well. I had the meatball sandwich with rabbit salad. Both were very good although the meatballs were a bit too salty and could use a bit more flavour. Our server switched mid way without any obvious reason and when we were seated no one told us the specials or any introduction to the restaurant which we heard them tell a table next to us. I would still recommend this restaurant but just don’t sit next to the staff table!!More

Great customer service, music, drinks and food. All you can ask for in a restaurant. Couldn't have chose better for a reasonable price.

Came here with friends for our bi-monthly night out. Great selection of choices. Service was super and very informative. Love the fact that it is so intimate a restaurant, with 10-12 tables max. Great selection of scotch, including some difficult ones to find in Ontario,...like Springbank. We will return.More

We were strolling down the street at lunch time and popped in here. We were seated right away. The ambiance is pretty hip and the menu quite different. We both had the turkey sandwich. It was excellent. My husband was not keen on the parsnip...and apple soup side dish. My salad was great. Service was excellent and our server was the only one serving so she was busy. We would go back if we ever go to Waterloo again.More

I went here for lunch last week. This place has a nice vibe and friendly staff. I really liked the fresh cocktails here, however, they were a little pricey. For food, I tried the crab hush puppies and did not really like them. It had...a unique texture, which I disliked. Overall, had a nice experience!More
