Terrific food. Great service. Good atmosphere. The menu changes up from time to time so you are never bored ... Good wines reasonably priced. This is one of those places you have to know where it is to get there ... Worth it!

I could smell the wood smoke oven as we approached the restaurant. Is there anything better on a cold day? So I was really excited to have a wood-fired pizza. We were a party of 11 and we meet monthly for a family lunch. I have to say despite the great reviews I was disappointed in my pizza. There wasn't... More

Our favorite places to go in Whitby. A calamari, a house salad and Cajun chicken pizza is what we have ordered every time we visit. It is the best food east of Toronto.

Had the MVP pizza and loved it. Thin crust pizza, cooked in a wood fired oven = yummy. Price was reasonable and loved the fact that kids meals are miniature versions of adult meals, and only cost $5. Service was excellent, better than some high end restaurants. Very attentive staff, but not obtrusive.

This used to be one of my favourite restaurants in Whitby. The food was always top-notch and 'creative' just like the name. But what was once a 'creative' diner is now 'vegetative' with its fare now falling well below par. The pizza just does not taste like it used to. The half roasted chicken was not crispy, well seasoned or... More

I absolutely love Hot Rocks! They have a great menu, excellent daily specials, great pizza, friendly and professional staff and a great atmosphere. It is more expensive then your typical restaurant but it is well worth it!

This is a wonderful restaurant. It is beautiful inside and outside. Surprising because it is in a strip mall but it is truly lovely and the patio looks really nice too because of the greenery. The pizzas are truly amazing, the wood oven, I think, is key to a nice crispy crust. We went with friends who swear by this... More

I came here with my girlfriend and another friend on a Thursday evening. The Wood burnt pizzas where cooked perfectly and the Caesar salad is absolutely delicious. We also had the coconut shrimp with chipotle plum sauce which was great as well. Dessert was vanilla Creme Brule. Our server was friendly and attentive. Overall decent prices for the quality of...
