Our friends invited us to go with them to dinner at Rapscallion and I was looking forward to a good meal and nice night out. But the food was absolutely horrible. It's a shared plate idea, which I normally love but it's basically all meat dishes and they do NOT taste good and on top of that are extremely small... More

Went here for our anniversary dinner. It's a quirky place with menus written on various walls for you to peruse. It's all small plates to share. There are some really good dishes and some very odd ones too. The wine list is good though a bit expensive. The vibe is very hip and casual. The servers are all very knowledgeable.... More

This was both my friend's and my first visit to Rapscallions and we were blown away. The servers were knowledgeable, really friendly and helpful. The menu is hand written on nearby walls and windows and our server was happy to describe the dishes to us where needed. We ordered Chicken Liver Brulee, Halloumi Tikka Masala, Jambalaya St. Jacques and Duck... More

Open kitchen concept restaurant. Menu is a large chalkboard in the kitchen area and the place doesn't look very appealing but the food is excellent and very different. The menu consists of small tapa's plates to share, we ordered 5 plates after asking what some were. They came out in an order chosen by the chef. We were not rushed... More

Drove to Hamilton SPECIFICALLY to eat at Rapscallion, and we were THRILLED we did! Requested the chef to select his favourites for us, and to include the stuffed wings and bone marrow. WOW! Fell in food-love with the Chicken Liver Brulee! Charcuterie platter, Stuffed Chicken Wings, Lambda-Lambda-Lambda, Sweetbreads, Bone Marrow ... Everything so inventive and delicious. Chocolate Ganache Bar w.... More

An interesting place, kind of pub like, sort of like a little club restaurant. Not fussy or fancy but clean and comfy. Food was interesting. Little plates to share. Every plate was a hit. Had the stuffed chicken wings, cassoulet and the foie gras. My friend and I both agreed that every dish was delicious and interesting. The combination of... More

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:))
