Great Food and Service

My family and fiancée dined here on a weeknight. The food was excellent, the service was great, the atmosphere was pleasant, but the space seemed small. There were six of us dining and four of us got pizza. They are known for their pizza so most of us wanted to try it on our first visit. The other... read more

We visited Hot Rocks with another couple for the first time on Sat Nov 21 and had an 8pm reservation. I would definitely call in advance as this place gets busy if you want your preferred time. We were seated and acknowledged by our server right away which is always nice. There was nice lighting and good music. Good place... More

Myself along with my boyfriend, sister and her boyfriend and our parents went to dinner at Hot Rocks early November 2015. We made a reservation which was very smart because it was a busy Friday night. We were seated right away and greeted by our server shortly after. Service was good, friendly and prompt. We all started with some bruschetta,... More

My wife and I were visiting Whitby from Cornwall, Ontario… a family visit. We decided to have a casual dinner at Hot Rocks. We entered the long, dark bistro and were seated promptly in a corner table for four persons. Throughout our dinner our server was polite, very attentive and efficient; thanks Jen. My wife and her mother ordered the... More

My memory of my first meal at Hot Rocks in 2013 is excellent. My boyfriend and I returned in 2014, neither of us were impressed with our meal. We returned this evening, hoping for a better experience but were disappointed once again. I ordered the Panzanello salad and Prosciutto pizza. The salad, boasting Heirloom tomatoes, was torn up chunks of... More

Sat on the patio. Service was a bit chaotic and slow but pleasant. I think they have young staff who follow the older staff rather than think for themselves and have autonomy. Wasn't bad just slow. Once we got our drinks, very good evening. A Brock Red beer for me and a Sauvignon Blanc for wife. Delicious. We ordered bread... More

Used to eat here frequently. Had some staffing problems when their chef started to work at their sister location Brock House, but had heard things had turned around and decided to gave it another try. Happily Reesa is still there, and running things to the same high standard. Had a good meal, good service, and will enjoy eating here once... More

Ate here twice, once for dinner and once for lunch. Dinner visit I built my own pizza, red sauce, hot peppers and a couple other toppings. It was excellent, and I really liked their Caesar salad too, with some corn kernels in there. Lunch visit, I ordered a Hawaiian pizza, and it was decent but not as good as the... More

People usually either love or hate this restaurant, however, my opinion falls somewhere in-between. Have been there on several occasions as a group. The restaurant is very cramped, being long and narrow. The prices are rather on the high side for pizza and I must admit, I have had better pizza elsewhere. In summary I would say this restaurant is... More

Have dined here many times as it never fails to satisfy. Menu and service are great. Certainly one of the best places in the area. Wood fire pizzas are excellent offering a design your own. The rest of the menu is great and the kitchen is happy to oblige small menu changes. Great atmosphere with the wood fire oven. Definitely... More
