The Hart House is a great place to dine but it will be better when the virus is not causing problems. It seems strange with the isolation and the staff all wearing masks.

Thank you for your feedback! Sometimes our kitchen team cannot keep up with the demand for cheesecake since it is made fresh in small batches. We will strive to always have enough dessert on hand. Hot tip: the Ricotta Doughnuts are to die for.

Very disappointing Christmas Eve dinner! Food was very low quality. We’ve dined many times at Hart House and found the food to be inconsistent. Will not be back.

Thank you for sharing your feedback - we appreciate that you took the time, it means a lot to us: your feedback helps us improve continuously. We would love to know what it was that disappointed you so greatly. Our Chef prepared our Christmas Dinner with great care, and the feedback has been positive so far. Something must have gone terribly wrong, and we are devastated that this could have happened on our watch. Please contact Sonja or Erkan so we can get to the bottom of this.

We went for our Christmas celebration on Christmas Eve. I was disappointed in myself for not specifying that I wanted to be seated downstairs - it is difficult for my mom to navigate a long staircase and the decor upstairs is not as elegant.
I think for Christmas the decorations could have been nicer in the dining room - maybe more twinkle lights around the windows, and a better room centrepiece (it was just a plain table with a large poinsettia) since the tables had to be sparsely decorated due to Covid restrictions. But then it may be hard for restaurants to make the investment in more decorations right now.
However the Hart House has the most inviting entrance area with the beautiful Christmas tree and fireplace. The staff were all very warm and attentive - the tables were very nicely spaced to allow for private conversation and a feeling of safety in the pandemic.
The food was AMAZING!!!! For me the atmosphere of a restaurant is most important, but for my parents it is the food taste. And they are very hard to please - I was a little anxious as I had selected the restaurant for our celebration, and if they didn't like it my mom would get critical and crass and my dad would make sarcastic comments. But they were soooo happy and impressed that mom asked me the next day about general availability at the restaurant and wants to return for her birthday in January. As a feather in my cap, my dad was very pleased with the wine the waitress brought him with his very vague description of what he felt like.

Thank you for your review! We appreciate that you took the time to share your feedback about your dinner. We are devastated that we disappointed you and your family on such a special occasion. We shared your feedback regarding the Duck Confit and Burger with our Chef and kitchen team, and will make sure this does not happen again. Missing your son's meal is inexcusable, and especially terrible considering it was his birthday. We will contact you directly to discuss how we can make it up to you.

It was a very good experience last month so i took my kids and husband to celebrate Christmas yesterday. It was a horrible dinner. Not sure if the chef is not in a good mood or what. The duck leg was so salty that can’t eat at all. The Angus beef burger was so dry and the bun hadn’t even heat up. My son’s entree was totally missed (and we were celebrating his birthday as well 🙁). The server was so busy running with 5 tables coming at the same time which never happens in fine dining before. Not a pleasant experience at all.

Don’t understand the noise level question. Is the smallest step for low noise level ( good) or for poorest quality of noise level (too noisy.)? Very ambiguous. I meant that it was lovely and quiet, just right.
