All in all, a wonderful experience. I can't believe they've been open for 4 years and I haven't been before! I will certainly be back. The summerlicious menu was delicious and the peaches were to die for. 10/10!

Atmosphere is great, but they seated us in a corner which is not that good a view. Further, ordered a Peach Harbenaro drink, the server said peach drink is good but did not tell me which peach drink was good, so I ordered a spicy drink that made my stomach churn a bit. My steak salad, the steak is a bit burnt and I wished they had some seasoning as it was bland.

What a great concept and wonderful effort. It was the first day on the floor for many and they did a great job. Food was tasty and the light in the room made for a wonderful lunch

Great non alcoholic drink specials, amazing food - simple but perfectly executed. Rarely do you get served a baby green salad that is perfectly dressed. Service was excellent and friendly. Highly recommended.

The service was friendly and the atmosphere was modern but relaxed and comfortable. Our food was delicious! The Winterlicious menu was an excellent choice of options. I chose this restaurant based on the menu (it had an unusual vegan option that was lovely), the social aspect of it's mandate and that the food was local. Keep up the great work! I will be recommending this restaurant to friends and family.

We really enjoyed the meal for Winterlicious and found all the dinner options very delicious and presented in an especially attractive way. The service was perfect and our trainee server was very sincere and excellent. We really appreciated the owner's initiative in taking in trainees and offering them on the job experience in his restaurant. I would definitely return again. Good location after our afternoon theatre and super tasty food and wonderful dining experience.

Too bad we choose the day when the place was closing after lunch for Christmas till New Year. Total surprise as I thought it should be the busiest time for restaurants. Staff were too busy packing and felt a bit chaotic and uncomfortable. Besides more than half of the items on the menu were not available. The pasta and flatbreads that we ordered were acceptable. Server was good. However the overall experience was pretty disappointing.

Ordered a burger, which was half raw inside. Of what little I had of the burger, I wasn’t at all impressed. I also became violently ill a few hours later (a coincidence?). I wasn’t charged for the burger. Wine was good, as was the coffee. All in all, I would not go back.

A great experience, which was nice, since our last couple of visits had been bumpy. Our server was a delight and did a great job of looking after us and getting us out in a timely fashion. As always, food was great - we're excited about their fall menu too!

Not very busy as we were early. The young waiter was very attentive and pleasant. The service was excellent and meal was ready very quickly. We both ordered the salmon and my husband said it was the best salmon he had had in a very long time. We were both very pleased with our meal , wine and the service.

We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at Summerlicious at Hawthorne. The atmosphere was bright and sunny and the service was friendly and attentive, more than making up for the occasional slip. The food was from a varied and interesting menu, deliciously prepared and beautifully presented. We'll be back!

We like the idea of your ethics and helping to train others so that they can get a job in the hospitality business. Everyone there was very pleasant, professional and delightful. The food was also excellent. Can’t wait to go back!

The food and service here is outstanding. One of my favorite restaurants in Toronto, which actually GIVES BACK TO THE COMMUNITY (which can't be said for most). Really enjoyed my meal and time spent here, and will without a doubt be coming back (multiple times!)

Very attentive, friendly and courteous service without feel like we were being hovered over -- perfect balance. Was not very busy at the time so seemed nice and quiet/private. Clean and comfortable. Had the Summerlicious lunch, all of it was tasty and served quickly. Good experience all around. Would recommend.

Summerlicious lunch food was pretty good, but the desserts were either too sweet (cake, bread pudding) or not very dessert-y (bowl of granola??). We found that a few items didn't seem like they matched what was on the menu ("granola balls" were just a bowl of a granola with a few berries, slides didn't have that homemade cheese whiz, or at least not much). The watermelon and strawberry salad was good and the shrimp flatbread was great too. Service was kind and attentive despite a few mixups in orders. The food prices were fair enough for what we paid for Summerlicious but would not want to pay more than that.

Excellent place, service was amazing, food was great as well. Would recommend to anyone that asks me. On top of all this, what they do in and for the community is great. Wish more places were as involved or at least had a mandate like Hawthorne does. Makes you want to go back even more.

Great atmosphere. Waitress was just fair, although they did perform like a high end restaurant cleaning table between courses and providing new cutlery for each course. Food was good, but nothing different.
