First Time as a patron at Hart House. We were celebrating two birthday's on one occasion. We were all very impressed. The evening was wonderful. The staff were amazing. The service was great. We will definately come again. The parking was tight, but there was a wedding going on. Fabulous all round experience.

We started with Spot Prawns. The appetizer came with some avocado and tiny pieces of pineapple. Quite delicious but a little pricey. Our main meals were the Crab and Shrimp Roll and the Prime Rib Sandwich. Both were very tasty and to our liking. For dessert, we shared the lemon curd item and it was superb. We loved it. The view to the lake is beautiful but the tent is up for wedding season so there is only a small part of the lake visible. On the whole, we loved the lunch and wonder why we go to chain restaurants when the prices are as reasonable at Hart House.

Went to dinner for Father's day with family members including two toddlers. The ambience was casually elegant, but not too stuffy to prevent families with young children from making the trip. The food was very tasty and the three course dinner for $56 was an excellent value. The location is quite beautiful as Burnaby lake is just a few steps away and gives you a chance for a nice little stroll either before of after dinner. We will probably go back.

We did not have a positive experience. The waiter did not get one of the orders right so his breakfast came after we had finished. My lamb sausage / egg was poor to average. The lamb hash was poor . My daughter had a nice lunch, the beef sandwich. It took 45 mins for us to get our breakfast from the time the order was taken. The grilled tomato was a joke. I feel I could have done a better job in 15 mins at home then the breakfast that was served. The coffe was cold and not very good. I won' t be back ,poor value for what we received.

The table and view were wonderful. The music was appropriate so we could talk and have a friendly chat. Service was great; except two servers walked by as I entered and did not even acknowledge my presence. I did not expect them to seat me but at least say, "someone will be with you in a moment". Did not feel rushed, and have a very nice relaxed meal in a beautiful setting.

Service was excellent and the food was good. Too bad it was raining or else we would be sitting outside enjoying the serenity of the lake! Just a bit noisy when the restaurant is full-housed. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Fantastic food in a cute Tudor house. Was given small treat for my birthday (had to ask). Fine dining, so portions were small and prices were high. We got to watch a wedding outside, looked very beautiful. Ask for a spot near a window.

We went for mothers day brunch and it was great food and a beautiful day so lovely spot with doors open and the view of the lake behind the restaurant. It was a little expensive for a brunch but there were alot of options, even for my brother who is vegan so still impressed and would do again for a special occasion.

Went for Mothers Day brunch. The menu has regressed and the price has gone up over past yrs. They had prime rib and salmon last year, this year it was beef brisket and steelhead. We were seated on the 2nd floor which felt like a conference room, no pictures on the wall and everyone stuffed in there. Too bad its fallen off as the property and area is so nice to spend the rest of the day with the family.

Being our 20yr Anniversary, I thought a return to where we were married would be a wonderful way to celebrate.

The day could not have been more enjoyable, the food, weather, and ambiance was just as I had remembered.

Highly recommend the Hart House, will definitely be back.

I think it is over priced and over rated. No one raved about the food we ate despite they were being treated. I ordered a fish dish which had so much sauce on it I was wondering if they were trying to disquise stale fish. We did have tiny bowl of complimmentary soup that was very good.
The service was good.
