Booked a last minute brunch for a Sunday morning. We were escorted to a table by a window overlooking Deer Lake. Lots of sunshine, a cozy little nook for our party. The waiter was discrete and knew his wine and food menu well. We all ate different meals and enjoyed them thoroughly. A really lovely time, enjoyed the whole experience.

Has been thirty years since I’ve been to Hart house. Other than the noise level being a little on the loud side we found it a very enjoyable experience. Good food, good service we will not wait another thirty years!

Charming, ambiance and excellent service. The steak and frites were good. Perfect place for those who enjoy character homes. This house was built in 1912, same year as the Sylvia Hotel. A peaceful oasis.

This is a well known pleasant venue for lunch or dinner. The food is very good (occasionally exceptional) and the service respectful. Most tables have a lovely view. The parking is very good.

Had a wonderful birthday lunch. I chose an entree that involved chorizo sausage. Should have asked chef to omit that item. Still one of my favourite restaurants to relax and visit with a good friend over good food and wine.

Thank you for joining us for your birthday. Hopefully we were able to remake that dish for you without Chorizo. I'll have some new wines coming on the list over the next several weeks. The new vintages are singing! Cheers, Edwyn Kumar, Operations Manager

The Hart House never disappoints!! It is my favourite restaurant after all these years because it is ALWAYS consistent! The food is always exceptional, and they change up the menu with delicious new entrees. The service is always so warm and welcoming. It always holds a very special place in my heart.

Excellent food, good service. Maybe it's just the low season now, but for a while we were the only customers in the place. I hope they get more business to keep it going. Seems like a well kept-secret! Free parking and lots of it too. A grand old house hearkening back to a well-to-do age.

Hi Halepauhana, Thank you for the positive review. This year will be our 32nd year in operation, and we're glad you found us! Indeed, the weekend after V Day can be quieter. We definitely enjoy providing that more intimate based service, and greatly appreciate your kind words! See you back in the dining room soon! Cheers, Edwyn Kumar, Operations Manager

The food was elegantly presented and delicious. The service was intuitive, meaning they seemed to turn up when you needed them, yet we didn’t feel bothered. The food arrived in the amount of time you would expect for fine dining. Overall, a memorable experience for us and the friends with us.

Extremely friendly staff who checked in the perfect amount. They completely accommodated my notes of request for my reservation and made my mom feel great on her birthday. Our food was delicious and they're big enough portions that we had to take food home! Thank you Hart House. I can't come here often but when I do it's always memorable.

The overall experience was very good.
However,as it was a cool night,the seats by the window were very cool.
First coffee was old and cool,but quickly replaced with a fresh cup(twice).
Not sure that they needed to charge for the duplication.

The place was dark and we had to use the flashlight to read the menu. We also did not like unpleasant smell in the building. On the positive side, it was quiet Fish was good, my did not enjoy beefsteak. We would not order the extravagant cheesecake again. The service was pleasant Overall impression, we will not be back.

We had a lovely dine out experience at hart house. We were celebrating a milestone and found it was the perfect place for a fine dining experience. Not too stuffy and very very delicious! The food made the evening and service was good/friendly.
The house was unique to be in as well and would love to know more about the history.
Worth a trip for a romantic evening or family celebration however Be prepared to spend a little more

I have visited the Hart House many times but this was the best. The food was and service were good as always but what made it special was the attention of the management team. They took the time at the end of the night to specifically ask us about our evening, and when questioned gave us a tour and a very knowledgeable history of the restaurant and the surrounding area which frankly made the evening for us as we live close by. We left feeling very well taken care of. Thanks guys! We will be back.

As always, the Hart House did not disappoint. I brought with me, a former co-worker as he had never been there before. This is always a favorite of mine as the restaurant is lovely, the staff is the most tremendous and the food is always exquisitely prepared.

I bring all my Birthday people here and I've never heard a single one not say that it's the best ever!

Thank you for always being so perfect.
