The food was absolutely incredible. The staff were friendly and our server was so attentive. The setting is stunning, old world and gentle. A view of Deer Lake and greenery surrounds. Great wine selection with careful attention to uncommon vines.

We were welcomed very warmly and shown to a beautiful table surrounded by windows looking out onto the radiant green lawn leading down to the lake. Our waiter was very personable and respectful, with a good sense of humour. The food and wine were both very good and the price was reasonable. The music was inappropriate for a restaurant of that ambience, but they were quick to turn it down when we asked. Is the decor ready for a refresher . . . or is the focus on keeping the original intact?

I’m not sure why but the restaurant has a weird odour. I don’t recall it smelling like this before. The food was mediocre. We had the special, halibut. Very quiet and service was good.

Had a great Thanksgiving dinner. Love the building and ambience, plenty of space, it was not noisy at all, staff was friendly and accomodating, there to serve when you needed, and ultimately just a great dining experience. I'll be back.

We didn’t know people could dine in the garden and reserved a table indoors. They put a bottle of wine for the table I wanted. But when I found outside was more pleasant, we were brought to a nice table outside. But the food is average.

Midweek 6:45 reservation for a special occasion - what could go wrong? Well even though depressing empty they were already out of the two dishes we most craved based on reviews. We left, before it got worse. You have to try harder Hart House.

Dear David thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on your experience at Hart House. Although we strive to have more than enough fresh seafood on hand for each service we do sometimes sell out of certain dishes, and I am very sorry this happened on the night in question. Since it was a beautiful, sunny day almost all guests were seated on the patio and lawn, which left the inside of the restaurant quite empty, especially considering that we have reduced our tables by 50% in order to provide proper distancing to keep our guests safe. Sincerely, Sonja Muller Sales Manager

We barely had to wait for our reservation and they gave us complimentary champagne! But being able to sit by a fire is fine by me anyways, very nice ambiance.
Food was perfect and so was the service.
I highly recommend and will be back myself.

Had a reservation of 6, 4 people showed up (my apologies) but we ordered 5 entrees.

Got feedback that Dungeness crab egg plant daily special was excellent. Waffles were really delicious (best I've had). Mussels and clams were fresh. I eat pretty lightly salted veggies-based foods at home so I found the pork sauce with the mussels was a bit salty but may not be to other diners. Loved the heritage setting of the restaurant. Waiter was attentive. Will definitely be back again!

I had a lovely and romantic dinner with my fiancée on Sunday Sept 20 at the Hart House. It was very quiet and the ambience was romantic especially when they dimmed the lights around 7:30-8pm (I believe).The food was great and the manager and server were kind to make sure our dietary needs were accommodated. It was a great evening and I will return.

My husband and I were celebrating our birthdays. This is a wonderful place for just such an occasion. The servers were so warm and welcoming, the food was very well prepared, and the price was much less than we expected. There was a 3 course set meal that I had, that was excellent: duck pate, seared scallops, and a chocolate ganache tart. My husband had stuffed meatballs (huge appetizer!), crab spagettini, and shared my dessert. We are hearty eaters and we were more than full, and even took left over pasta home with us! If it had not been so smoky outside, we would have gone for a walk after dinner, since it’s such a lovely location on Burnaby Lake.

Definitely recommend the Hart House!
