Found this gem on weekend visit to Hamilton for that city’s marathon. With its ever changing chalkboard menu, Rapscallion is Shangri-La for the foodie set. The waiter, expertly briefed on the menu, recommended the small plate approach to facilitate sharing. My 6 year old opted for the charcuterie plate, 10 year old went for the cheese tika masala, wife got... More

The ideas of great dishes were there but they really lacked flavour. Not enough seasoning. Presentations were just eh. Overall not that impressed which was disappointing because reviews were good. We ordered the 'pear'fect salad and kept crunching on dirt. These owners also had The Alex in Burlington and I felt much the same about that as well.

Pretty good, but maybe it was talked up too much and didn't quite meet my expectations. They had decent drinks and the food wasn't anything to die for, but it was fairly good! I think I'll go back to try it again. Nice location and the servers were very pleasant:))

What a pleasant surprise to find such a unique restaurant in the steel city. The setting is alive and casual with menu items scrawled on the windows and walls. Since all portions are small, you order 2 or 3 even for one person. This way you have an opportunity to try the chef's original take on good. The lamb I... More

Thank you so, so, so much for the feedback. We just launched a full vegetarian/vegan menu this week, on top of our other fare, so we may just have a reason for you to come back :) More

The chocolate desert wonderful especially with BACON! Yes !!! bacon! My only complaint was the portion size was too small -even for the sharing tapas... More

Awesome unique wide range of shared plate and descent wine list. Cool comfortable atmosphere with a true sense of quality. On the expensive side but worth every penny. Never disappointed

My husband and I live in Hamilton and we love trying new foods. We tried this on a recommendation and have been back many times. This is our go-to restaurant when we have visitors. I have loved everything I have ever tried here. If you are expecting a classic Canadian menu you might be a little disappointed because this restaurant... More

Arrived at 5:45 on a Tuesday evening & was asked if we had reservations. We didn't. We didn't really get a table we liked. But that was ok. No menu. Just a chalkboard with no explanations. It was 2 can dine for $69 night. (But only 1 desert) ? Was the food delicious. Yes !! Would we come back. Not... More

I am disgusted and offended by the use of the word Glutarded on the menu. It offends so many and in today's world it should never be used. It is not cute or trendy. Just the owner being derogatory.
