Excellent food with a smaller menu so they are focussed on quality. Great selection of wines. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Highly recommend the Hart House for a more formal dining experience.

Hart House for lunch was amazing! We had an extra person show up that had originally declined and they accommodated them by moving us to a larger table that was available. The specials were great options and the food delicious.....especially the desserts! The service was impeccable....always there to provide us what we needed but didn't hover over us! Thanks, Hart House staff for a great lunch!

Our 3rd visit here. For a birthday. Food had all been sitting for so long under the heatlamps that the wagyu burger we ordered was burning hot on the top (the bun, literally too hot to eat for 10 mins after arriving at table) and really so overcooked it tasted like something that was previously frozen.

The clams/mussels were the same. Burning hot from sitting under the heatlamps for so long.

Assuming due to covid related staffing issues but was a really disappointing experience this time.

Service was okay but slow (we had a 5 oclock table so the restaurant was not busy at all) and the restaurant itself is as beautiful as ever but the food was just not up to par. Really disappointed. 300$ for a 2 person meal and really felt like we had wasted our money.

We won't be back.

They were so gracious when the other couple in our party arrived past the 2pm cut-off for putting orders in for brunch, and took them about 10 past 2pm.
The pricing is so reasonable for such a classy place, definitely coming back in the next few months!

The seafood pasta was good. Would have been nice to have a side accompany the dish. Especially at this price. I would offer everyone a small scoop of lime ice before and after dishes to cleanse the pallet. The staff was very accomodating, professional and all seemed quite Happy to be there to serve us and assist each other.

Hart House is a restaurant we have been to several times over the years but never for brunch . It is a unique heritage house set on a beautiful property overlooking Deer Lake. We were seated by friendly welcoming staff at a lovely fireside table. We started with a fresh crisp mimosa and decided to try the special crab bennie and vegie cheese frittata for our mains. Both dishes accompanied by home made roasted potatoes chunks were generous and cooked to perfection. Our server was friendly and efficient and kept us topped up with water, coffee and tea. We chatted and lingered and felt welcome to do so. The atmosphere is relaxed but still feels like a special treat. We will be back soon to enjoy the dinner menu.

Visiting the Hart House Restaurant is like stepping back in time. The location is convenient though the whole vibe is relaxed and out of the hustle and bustle of the city. The food was excellent, we were seated by the fireplace and we could carry on a conversation without yelling over music or restaurant noise. The staff is very professional and helpful.

Food was amazing! It’s my second ltime at Hart house (first time was yrs ago but remember food was good)
The chefs definitely know how to do a good job! The layers, flavours, portions are all just perfect. Choice of ingredients is delicate. Service was great, vibe was so good. Next time I will try to go on a weekend.

Delicious food in a lovely setting. It is an old house with great atmosphere. I loved the snowy table linens and sparkling glasses. The service was just right. Attentive but not intrusive. I plan to go again soon.

It was a spur of the moment decision to dine out. Luckily they had a reservation open for our preferred time slot. When we arrived, the dining room was nearly full and the atmosphere was buoyant! We were greeted with smiles and attentive staff. We ordered our meals and a bottle of the recommended wine pairing… excellent choice! Meals were delicious and just the right size. I hate being overwhelmed with so much food that I either feel guilty for not finishing, or I overstuff myself and regret it later. I’ve been here before and will definitely be coming back. Lovely heritage house in a splendid setting by the lake. One of my faves!!

Quite expensive and a very small wine list. The wine I did try to order was sold out. The food was very good

Responded on October 30, 2021

Dear Rita Thank you so much for your review; your feedback is much appreciated, and we are so happy that you enjoyed the food. Our wine list currently has 34 wines: we try to focus on quality over quantity, and we put great emphasis on supporting small (as well as a few large) producers while curating a list that pairs well with our cuisine. Instead of maintaining a large inventory we enjoy switching up the wine list to respond to availability and seasonal changes on our menu.
