Lovely impromptu dinner with Mom at the end of a hectic Sunday.
Great value for the impeccable food, attentive, friendly and engaging service, and gorgeous view.
Everyone should come and enjoy!
My husband and I went to Hart House Restaurant for our anniversary dinner. We were greeted with the host acknowledging our anniversary. We were asked to wait for a couple of minutes so we can get seated at one of their nicest tables. It was a really nice spot. We ordered from their three course menu and we were quite impressed by everything we ate! Servers made the evening extra special with very polished service. We are already talking about going back on my birthday!
Just a wonderful place to be. Great service and old world charm when you don't want to be stunned by hype.
We come back here every year on our anniversary (and other times as well) We have always had outstanding service. The menu changes and I like to try meals that I wouldn’t make at home. The duck confit was just as the server described. Delicious. A very special place for us. We’ve never been disappointed
Very nice view of the lake
The host was very polite in receiving us. The waiter was nice too but he got my order wrong. He felt bad about it and shyly asked if I wanted another plate but I just let it slide. The person who brought our food to the table was always in a rush, never once asked if we needed anything else. She just left the food and turned around so fast. We had to flag them for fresh pepper.
Overall the food was good, I had seafood sphagettini and my friend had steak. Nice ambience, especially for special occasion.
There should be a system to monitor customers. Folks at table in the sun room where we were dining were playing U tube, were loud laughter etc; very inappropriate for a fine dining evening. Thus the noise level was such we couldn’t converse at our table, causing us to speak to them re their inappropriate behaviour.
Food satisfying but for our friends when ordering tenderloin we expected potatoes. Also, seasonal vegetables were sparse and rather unappetizing.
Service was great. Manager and server very attentive.
Excellent food & fantastic service. Beautiful setting and a great place for a special occasion. Will be back!
One of our favorite places to eat for special occasions but the kitchen was a bit off this night resulting in my steak being over cooked and having to be sent back. The manager tried to make it right after to her credit but the meal was ackward
Great moderate priced lunch. We were surprised at the menu prices. Very reasonable....
The restaurant is in an elegant heritage house, with a lovely decor, overlooking Deer Lake. We enjoyed the ambiance of being seated in the sun room on this sunny day. Service was excellent & attentive from the time we stepped in to the time we left. The server seemed to know whenever the water glasses needed to be refilled. The food was tasty, cooked perfectly, and plated nicely. It was a great dining experience and we would definitely return.
We had a great time with our friend and kids on a beautiful Sunday morning. The food was so nice that was enjoyed by both adults and kids. Love the brunch that it was a wide range of selection for everyone :) we will definitely choose the Hart House again and will try the outside dining for the next time!
Great location...great food..great service. Will definitely go back again. Highly recommend Hart House
Really pleased to see the changes to your menu. Including an item from the dinner menu on the lunch menu as a special was really pleasing. Thank you.
Wowzzzz....what’s a place. Beautiful place, relaxing, atmosphere is so tranquil and staffs are beyond friendly and on the ball.
I will definitely be back with family and friends.
The room, the service and food was A-1. We will return when we dine out.
Great overall but we thought the music was loud. Difficult to hear what people were saying.
Lovely Sunday brunch and the restaurant was bright with linens on the tables that made it elegant but not pretentious. Service was attentive and waiter friendly - food was great with lots of variety. A nice little walk afterwards in the park made for a very memorable and relaxing afternoon. We’ll definitely come again.
Great food. Service usually excellent; this time I had to ask multiple times for items that I shouldn't have had to ask for (milk; sugar; spoon; etc), which is mildly annoying, but it was otherwise good. Eggs benny special (steelhead) was fantastic.
Perfect place 👍🏻😋😊 amazing view, nice food, good service!
Good, professional service, very attentive, very helpful. Knew the menu.
One of the few places I can go for quiet intimate conversation.
It is a good place for special occasions. great service, great experience, but the food quality was average, food was not fresh.
Great Restaurant with great service! Very attentive but not intrusive at the same time! we will definitely be back!
Lovely room. Attentive service. Pedestrian food. Maybe it was just a busy Sunday Brunch with additional special events booked. Expected better breakfast.
How did we not know about this amazing restaurant before? Everything was fantastic. This is perhaps the best Greater Vancouver restaurant I’ve been to in 14 years.
Food was wonderful and atmosphere lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit..
Warm hospitality and friendly, efficient service.
Beautiful food presentation and quality.
A lovely special occasion experience!
It was another wonderful experience at the Hart House. Very romantic. We will be back.
Since it was a cold evening and there were few there, we were fortunate we could leave the window seat and move inside. There was a very cold draft coming off the tall window.
The mens wash room really needs an inside rebuild as the entrance is TOO small.
The Hart House is a wonderful restaurant to celebrate Valentine's Day. With the warm cozy fireplace at the entrance and the beautiful "glassed-in" sunroom on a sunny, snow-filled day overlooking Deer Lake, it doesn't get any better. Food and service was great!
Excellent lamb shank entre -ordered by 3 of us - was hands down best we have ever had! Beautiful setting & layout. Outstanding service by all. Highly recommended.
Try the Dine Out (extended 1 week) Sturgeon. Amazing!
Exceptional service and nice environment. Though will not recommend raw food.
Disappointed no lunch menu on Sunday. Special wasn’t good value at all.
First time there and was very disappointed.
Food is OK, but too overpriced for the value. Ambient is very old school and service was just Ok.
Had not been to Hart House for few years. The setting is still great the food not so much. We were there during dine out Vancouver so I know they like to move people along but as soon as we put done our utensils the plate was picked up whether quite ready or not and then the next one was brought out. Between dishes 5 minutes did not even pass. The mushroom soap was fantastic the lamb was extremely gamey tasting and not enjoyable. The dessert was very average we tried the chocolate and shortbread and neither would I ever order again. The whole experience was okay wont be back for a few more years.
Great food and ambiance. Will defiantly go back!
Our server was too soft spoken, and it felt like we had to please him to get things done.
