Always a nice atmosphere. Good job with COVID PPE and distancing.

Burger a bit high priced, fries were over cooked.

Eating out on the lawn with a view of Deer Lake on a warm sunny night in August is wonderful. Wonderful enough to still recommend going - at least until September.

We were also greeted warmly our wine order was forgotten until we asked the passing hostess.

The food was ... OK. Certainly not bad but uninspired. Not having a single fresh salad on the menu in August is disappointing.

Good for a fine dining meal.
Pretty good with COVID policies but could be a little more spaced out l. Just a little, I felt too close to the other table but that could be cause they were speaking extremely loudly

The mussels and clams soup was very good. The Mediterranean flatbread was tasty but very hard on edges. I mentioned that to the server and I received 25% off.
Wine pairing was very good.

We ate outside on a beautiful day with a gorgeous view of the lake. It was so quiet, private and peaceful, with tables spread a good distance apart. It was our first restaurant dining in months and the staff made us feel very welcome, safe and catered to. The service was attentive but discreet. We enjoyed the whole experience.

With the wedding tent gone due to COVID, the Hart House set up tables on the lawn and it is absolutely stunning! Best patio in all of the Lower Mainland, hands down.
Food and service are five stars as usual which is always a treat.

We were celebrating our daughter’s 21st with an intimate family brunch. From start to finish, it was a lovely experience. We were greeted with smiles, seated in a lovely separate outdoor dining balcony area (as they knew it was a special occasion), and the food was scrumptious. The offerings were limited but every dish we had, from the mussels with a saffron infused sauce, to the orzo wild mushroom dish, to the waffles, was incredible. Our server was friendly, attentive, and skilled. We enjoyed an afternoon in the splendor of the outdoors with all the conveniences of the indoors. My daughter loved it - as did we. We will definitely book our next special occasion here!

Group of 4 adults on Sunday July 26. Seated inside which we preferred, but the doors were open and there were large black flies all over (many) - in our faces and around our food. Staff all had masks on (thank you), but we had a different person to our table every time (5 or 6) which was odd, not to mention we didn’t know who our server was... We had eggs benny special, mushroom orzo, and the burger. Food was ok. Nothing “blow your mind”. Once we got our food we did not have anyone stop by to ask if we wanted more drinks etc so our glasses were empty for at least 30 minutes until we finally got sick of waiting for eye contact and had to wave another new person down for assistance. We had originally ordered a bottle of wine for the table and would have liked to have had another drink with our meal (or even cold water would have sufficed). Overall it was fine. We would go back but it will not be our first choice. Hopefully they get some screen doors and ensure the wait staff are at least walking by so they can continue to up sell additional drinks during the meals. BTW - the Chefs should eat at Howe Sound Brewing in Squamish so they can try their burger and make Hart’s better.

I just found the halibut a bit salty and the parmesan fries were too salty.
$ was a bit overpriced for the amount of food that was served.
Other than that, the service and the ambiance were superb.
Thank you!

My husband and I have been dining at Hart House off and on for 27 years. It is beautifully located on Deer Lake in Burnaby The atmosphere is so relaxing, friendly and warm. Like an old friend. The chefs do amazing dishes that are absolutely delicious and beautifully plated. We have never been disappointed. The wine list has many lovely wines and ports to choose from.
After dinner you can stroll along the lake which borders the property through the back garden.
We highly recommend Hart House, you won't be disappointed.

We wanted a restaurant that offered a beautiful location, excellent food and a place where we could converse with friends. The Hart House satisfied all our requests. We had halibut which was done to perfection. My husband had a lamb shank which he said was the best he ever had. My friend's husband had the tenderloin which was of the best quality. We really enjoyed our lunch and will return.

I reserved a patio table for out of town guests. When we arrived the table wasn’t available so we had to eat inside. When we were half finished we could have moved outside but it was a little late. Two of us ordered spaghettini with seafood. The seafood was very sparse and in very small pieces. Drinks were good but I was very disappointed with the main course. This has been one of my “go-to” restaurants but I am hesitant to go again soon.

Brunch was great. We all tried the Eggs Bennie and loved the prosciutto rather than traditional ham. The Hollandaise sauce was light and not too much.

The restaurant back yard is open to Burnaby park and they've setup tables, well spaced out, looking at Burnaby lake. It creates an incredible ambiance and experience. Elegant food, wine, and great weather. Definitely an incredibly satisfying experience. I would definitely do it again.

Wonderful views from our appropriately distanced table on the south lawn. Server was excellent- all staff wearing masks and respecting guest’s personal space.
As always- the food was spectacular with a wide variety of options. Wine list is varied with many excellent offerings.
Absolutely 5 STARS!!

service was good. he split the appetizer for us which was nice. waiter forgot to bring my drink. the food was very good but the portions were very small. i was hungry after leaving and that was frustrating as i don't mind spending the $ but i want to be full when i leave. they all wished my wife a happy birthday but i was hoping for a candle for her to blow but i guess restaurants are cutting costs.

Great food and service. Pleasant atmosphere. I was surprised to see that a few people were dressed too casually in my opinion, like they were out for fast food. The only criticism I have about the service is, it would have been nice to have a special dessert or something for our anniversary. There was nothing to recognize out special occasion.

Enjoyed a special anniversary occasion with a weekday Brunch booking, seated outside facing the beautiful Deer Lake setting. Due to Covid-19, proper seating and serving procedures were followed. Service was outstanding and the food was excellent. This is our favorite local restaurant.

We had a great table out on the lawn and were entertained by the flock of Canadian geese - this was especially good for keeping our 7 year old granddaughter entertained. The food was good with some meatless entrees for the two vegetarians in our party.

We were very pleased with most aspects of our evening. Our server was very helpful and answered our many questions happily. The room we were in was charming with suitable distancing.
We were a little disappointed with the menu as we had taken time to go through it at home and chosen what we would have liked only to find that several of the items we had selected were not on the menu although they had been included when we perused the menu at home. I'm sure some of this was unavoidable but there should have been a way to let us know beforehand
Thank you.

Beautiful Place to dine in and wonderful experience. we dine on the sunroom for sunday brunch and overlooking grass yard and Deerlake. Really beautiful. Breakfast could be a bit more special for the price. I ordered egg benedict and it was ok. potatoes were dry. service was good. overall I enjoyed time there and will return. Tried all 3 Desserts, was really good.
