Rush Hour Restaurant is a charming casual dining spot located on Dufferin Street, just north of Dupont. Just as charming is owner and operator Fernando Silva’s commute to work — his family lives in the upper floor of the building housing the restaurant.

The restaurant’s interior is beautiful and elegantly designed; the wines displayed on a bare red brick wall are sure to draw your eye. There’s room for 32 diners in this cozy space and when the patio is open in summer that capacity doubles.

Rush Hour’s main specialty among its diverse menu is fish, including such catches as grouper, tuna, Chilean sea bass, salmon and more. In fact, other fish like swordfish or shark also become available from time to time.
“Some fish comes twice a week from Portugal, and some is local,” Fernando explains.

National pride runs deep at this restaurant as not just some of Rush Hour’s fish, but also their olive oil, salt and rice are imported from Portugal. Similarly, their bread is made in local Portuguese bakeries.

“Most of the wines are Portuguese, with some French and Italian wines,” says Fernando, “but number one is Portuguese wines.”

Homemade desserts like tiramisu and passion fruit mousse round out this already rich and enticing menu.

It was our first time at the restaurant. We went there because one friend went there before and loved it. Me and my wife decided to try 2 brazilian dishes they do as specials: Picanha - a brazilian steak - and feijoada - black beans stew with diverse pork meat. I never tried something like that before! The picanha was very soft. The feijoada tasting very good because of the smoked pork meat. Both plates came with something called "farova" - I think it's the way they spell it. It's a manioc flour with meat and veggies. Very different! Our friend ate F. Mignon and he liked it.. I tried the sauce, very good. Next time I'll try the gnocchi with the same sauce.

You know, I was so embarassed when I took my date there for dinner on Friday night. The Chorizo was so over grilled (burnt), my date had a caesar salad that had rotten pieces of romain and was so over drenched with tastless dressing and stale tasting croutons she couldn't even eat it. I ordered the ribs as a main, hoping that they would be as tastey as the last time I had them, only to be dissappointed again, the barbeque sauce was not even close in flavour and again the meat was so overcooked and burnt on the outside. It was like shards of wood. My companion had the snapper, and somehow I doubt that it was really even snapper. It was sooooo salty she had to refill her water twice. who ever was in the kitchen really has to go back to school. When I jokingly inquired as to the status of the chefs credentials, I was told that the original chef that they had before was no longer with them, too bad. Not the same by a long shot. I'm sorry but i won't be returning to Rush Hour any time soon.

I don't know what happened to this little establishment. This was our third time there. The first two times the food really was amazing, however when we visited the other day it was like they got rid of their chef or something. Calamari was like rubber and very salty, Ribs were dry and the sauce did not taste nearly like they did the last two times. My husband had the steak and the gorganzola sauce was like paste, he ordered the meat medium rare and it came well done and the vegetables were so over done we couldn't/didn't finsih them. We were VERY disappointed, since Iwe were entertaining guests from out of town, and they are true foodies. When we told our server it was like we had insulted her. The wine prices are good, selection has a little work needed. Atmosphere is a little rustic, cheap chairs very uncomfortable. Had trouble finding the place signage is very poor, Washrooms are clean. Parking is limited. Needless to say they need to revamp the kitchen and get and get it back together again. Maybe it was the Chefs day off, still no excuse.

Delightfully Delicious

The food was delicious and atmosphere was delightful. Rush Hour really understands the art of dining. At no point were we rushed to make any choices or leave. In fact, despite the fact that it was getting later and my friend and I were the only ones remaining in the restaurant it seemed that they were encouraging us to continue to stay even though it was evident that we wouldn't be ordering any more food or drinks. Our server topped up our wine even though we had already finished our bottle and he brought us sweet Chestnuts. The food was delicious and the portions were very generous. This restaurant has a modern look but a community feel. I look forward to going back often.

Good food, fair price. It's nice to see a restaurant with a open kitchen and the chef working. The Grouper was really good, next time I'll try the Snaper.

Delicious in an unexpected place.

What a cute little spot to enjoy a great meal, finally in our neighbourhood! The ambiance, the service, the food, the value...all great. What was nice is that it didn't cater too much to only portuguese flair, but also had italian undertones.
