Haida Gwaii Halibut

The beet salad was excellent and the halibut was extremely tasty with a very unique and appealing presentation. The tables are well spaced so our table for 2 was very private and we felt very comfortable going out for our first post-Covid dinner. It was a rainy day so we couldn't eat on the patio but we look forward to trying it on another occasion.
The appetizers were very good. We had the zuppa and meatballs and then for our mains both had the halibut but it was very dry. For dessert we had the doughnuts which were also very good. The service was not so great. Even considering the pandemic at the moment we expected the experience to be different in general but the service was lack lustre and slow. Our server was very inattentive and left all of our dirty plates and cups on the table for quite a while. It wasn’t all that busy as there were only 4 tables in our area. Overall I would go there again and hope it was just an off day for the service.
Lovely meal on gorgeous patio. Highly recommended
Great food and service as always. Lots of nice tables outside.
Wonderful lake view.
Accommodated our request to sit outside by opening a small private patio just for us - it was a perfect temperature and location for our small party. Food was delicious. All the staff were friendly and very customer satisfaction oriented.
the food was very tasty, welll presented & the waiter friendly
Eating outside was perfect, even tho the weather less than perfect. Seated under a tree kept the rain off us, & the heat lamp helped those who needed more warmth. Staff attentive, which made up for less than perfect conditions with this pandemic.
Anything on a menu would satisfy the most critical food lover.
We choose the Hart House for our Anniversary dinner partly because we can walk to it, and because it is a beautiful location and excellent food and service. It was lovely to sit outside sipping our wine and enjoying the garden and lake view.
As usual, dining at the Hart House was a lovely experience. The environment is unique and so lovely. The staff is exceptional and added to our wonderful experience. A perfect place for a delicious meal and a special evening.
Unfortunately the service was not great.
We can to ask for water and even after the empty cups were refilled only when we had to ask for it.
- The venue is very elegant
- The waitress was pleasant
- drinks were good
- the Tenderloin was amazing!!!
- the dessert doughnuts were a new twist on an old friend
All in all a great way to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary
Father’s Day dinner with family. Very nice view from the seating outside.
Would recommend the Hart House everyone. We were married there as well...outstanding service and space
Definitely pick the Hart House. Great food, nice ambiance, overall good experience. Will definitely go back.
Definitely the best restaurant in Burnaby, and between five best in the Vancouver!
They never disappoint!
Ambient and service are impeccable, and food too.
Worth mentioning is the vine list!

Lunch on the grass in the sunshine !

Great lamb shank
Coffee , not the best
Great to be back to enjoy a wonderful setting and great cuisine at the Hart House. The restaurant is carefully observing Covic-19 guidelines and still serving clients well and with pleasure.
overall great experience can't wait until menu is back to normal
We very much enjoyed our meal at the Hart House. I especially enjoyed sitting in the round sun room where we could view the lake. The tables were far apart, and the table clear of condiments, which was good. The menu was a little on the light side, but we did find some good suggestions. Our waiter was very friendly and efficient. It was just so nice to be out again.
We ate on the lawn. The sunset was beautiful; the food tasted great; the surroundings were awesome but it was a little chilly. Bring a warm jacket and a blanket. You can always not use it if you have it.
We went for Sunday brunch and both our meals were delicious...we had a salad and a frittata, wine and coffee. I’ve been there several times...Christmas dinner, casual meals and a reception....and always been very pleased.
Special occasion Sunday brunch. Sat out on the Grass, lovely sunny day. Food and service were both good. Would go again.
Beautiful setting, easy to social distance. Never been disappointed.
Delicious food and great service in a beautiful setting.
One of the best patios I've ever sat on. The food was absolutely delicious. It would be great if they had beers on tap.
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.
Excellent service and food as always!!
Food, service, ambiance was perfect. Would recommend for any event.
I loved this place because this is were I had my wedding reception 28 years ago. Good food, great ambiance and good service. No complain with the brunch experience in Hart House.
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!
The mussels were absolutely amazing!! Definitely recommend
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.
A lovely menu for Sunday brunch with family to celebrate a birthday.

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.
