    We loved the location, but the overall experience for 250.00 fell short. The waitress was polite and deserves a good rating. The product she had to serve was less. First, we had an excellent table but had to move because, in the dining room, the door to the patio was in the middle and was disruptive, letting the wind and cold air in. My wife requested to move. I ordered a 47.00 Halibit dish. While the plate looked delicious. Halibut was dry and overcooked, rubbery instead of flaky buttery. The sauce and other elements needed more salt. The dish itself if this was improved would be great. For almost 50 it was disappointing. We ordered a bottle of chardonnay. The 64.00 bottle was clearly priced high for profit. However it was the only one on menu. A 5oz glass was 14.00 and a 8oz we recall 21. Compared to other places this seemed price gauaging. Add on tip tax in a competitive market and its difficult to justify. However we agreed to buy a 64 bottle. But the waitress brought a opened bottle that had a glass missing from lunch. She told us shed take 5.00 off. I've never been so insulted as a goodie and wine informed food critic. The bottle was opened since noon and it was 6pm. It wasn't sealed with a cork with air removed but with a screw top. I would have expected the server to apologize for not having a bottle sealed and offer half off for the substandard product or just tell us to order another unless we wanted to have a glass only. If a chardonnay was 40 or 50 people may take a risk but a 64 price, the bar should never have let that come to the table as a full sale. A 5 oz glass on menu was 14.00. Yet the server offered 5.00 off for a 64.00 bottle that she said had 5oz removed. ??? We feel the food prices for the quality was over priced. But the view and character of the Hart House was saving grace. To the Hart house management. The servers deserve their tips. If you charge the prices, up the game. Even bread and butter was 6.00 on the premium menu.

    Food lacklustre and super overpriced. Cold upon arrival and eggs were rubbery.We were sat at a table next to the doorway which opens to the patio This was very inconvenient as hostess was always coming in and out and the cold wind kept blowing at my back. Service was not overly great. Pleasant enough but not worth 18% starting percentage tip. View was the only thing I enjoyed about this place. Will not be returning or recommending this place to anyone.

    I had the Prix Fixe option with duck and the wine pairing. Everything was great, with the duck being perfect. Good choices for the wines. The only blemish was the Macchiato needs a bit of work.

    This was the perfect dinner evening. The ambience in the “house” is always cozy, yet elegant. The food was tasty, well prepared and plated well. Our waiter was attentive, yet not around too frequently. There was a wedding on the go in the front garden and the lake glistened as the sun set. The wine choices were outstanding. I chose a Rioja, which rarely fails! The halibut was firm but succulent and the Creme Brule was exactly as every Brule should be. The manager/owner is always present and very sociable. So if you are in Vancouver and want a successful dinner for your guests from out of town, Hart House will always guarantee success. A meal at HH is always impressive and guaranteed to be tasty, no matter which dishes you order.

    They were very good to accommodate me with my reservations. I didn’t know we were sitting on the second floor when I made the reservations. After a second phone call, and the fact that they opened up seating outside, we were able to sit outside. However, we were forgotten while out there. Had to ask for drink service and cutlery. Once the staff knew we were occupying a table outside, the service improved.

    Another top-scoring brunch for Hart House this year. Pleasing to see, some new and interesting food selections to choose from. The only miss for me was the fish dish. To say the least the fish was underwhelming compared with last year’s. Overall the reception and service staff were top notch and we all had a pleasant and enjoyable experience.

    Overall underwhelmed. Food options were okay, wish they had more selection. $14 for a kids spaghetti overpriced when nothing else offered for spaghetti and tomato paste. Server forgot drink, and didn’t check in during meal service. Was busy not busy for Saturday Brunch.
    Hart House RestaurantResponded 5 days ago
    Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We're sorry to hear that your recent experience with us fell short of expectations. Regarding our kids' menu, we do offer a variety of options beyond spaghetti, and we apologize if this was not clearly communicated. Our homemade pasta sauce is homemade, and we're disappointed to hear that it didn't meet your expectations. In regards to your experience during Saturday Brunch, we understand that it may have been busier than usual, especially being the day before Mother's Day. While we don't use this as an excuse, we hope this helps put the situation into perspective. Nonetheless, it's clear that we failed to meet your expectations in terms of service and selection, and for that, we sincerely apologize. We appreciate your feedback as it helps us improve our offerings and service. We hope you will consider giving us another chance in the future to provide you with a more enjoyable experience. Erkan Esgin GM

    A cool rain made the fireside table very welcoming. Beautiful room, comfortable dining chairs and tables spaced well to keep the atmosphere intimate. Food was fresh and in season but too many great options made it hard to decide. Loved the risotto with peas added scallops. Lamb, halibut and seafood pasta were all perfect.

    Service and food were very good. However, if they can reduce a few tables that would make the atmosphere of the restaurant better. Further, compared to other similar restaurants, the prices are a bit higher. Anyway, I would recommend this restaurant, it is still worth a try.

    I love the Hart House. It's classical and food is always good but I am hoping this last weekend was an anomaly. The food was fine but it took forever to take our order, we had to keep asking for refills in our water glass (most of the brunch my glass was empty), my entree was not quite hot enough and the room was extraordinarily noisy. There seemed to be enough staff milling about so perhaps someone was training or they were short staffed elsewhere. I'm hoping it was a one off because this truly is one of Burnaby's hidden gems for ambiance.
