    Stellar cocktails and wonderful entrees with great ambiance and live jazz. If you like bourbon, try the Hi Ho signature cocktail - it's a dream!

    Great jazz bar- perfect to visit for some tunes after dinner in the south end.

    Huge disappointment. Rushed service for brunch. Lukewarm greasy gray colored meat arrived in under 5 minutes straight from a from a chafer dish in a dirty kitchen.

    Went for Jazz brunch on a cold Saturday morning. All tables were taken but there was plenty of room at the downstairs bar for our group of 7. Fun & cozy atmosphere. Try the shakshuka!

    My first time at this place, I ordered a Moscow mule and they didn't have the mug, and the bartender didn't tell me that. The drink wan't good at all. Hot and bad vodka.

    Drafty basement seating left us shivering the whole time. Shakshuka was disappointing, so was poutine. One redeeming factor was live jazz.

    Great for dates. On Mondays, the live reggae band is the best! The ambience downstairs is perfect. I'm a sucker for dim lights and funky design aesthetics. The staff are super nice too!

    Go for late night drinks or a fun brunch. Always have a live band - lots of fun! Get the short rib eggs Benedict and French toast at brunch! No questions asked.

    There aren't enough things to say about the beehive. Can't go wrong with their house honey brew and famous short rib grilled cheese. Squid ink specials are A+ when they have 'em.

    Cocktails. Downstairs is a better scene, super eclectic, but don’t eat here—the food is too pricey for the quality, but you can head right across the street to The butcher shop or BG Oysters

    Cute place, but I personally don't think the food is anything to write home about. To quote my own thoughts about the cod; "the vegetables were fresh". Says it all. Come for the atmosphere and music.

    Was not impressed at all! The live jazz band was nice but the food was overrated & OVERPRICED! Service was horrible! The place was pretty empty for our waitress to be M.I.A!
