Delicious food. The seafood stew and seafood spaghettini were a little bit spicy but so tasty. They have kids menu available as well which is great for family with picky eaters. The tables are nicely spaced out in the beautiful garden. The staff wear masks. We feel very safe eating their during the pandemic.

Thanks to a great Team at Hart House, we had a very relaxing family gathering, all Covid protocols were observed and still we feel very at ease. Your patio was spaced nicely with heat lamps available if necessary.

Food was outstanding as the Kitchen Team & Chefs put in their hearts to make our experience memorable.

Koduos to Andrew and his coworkers who's name we did not obtain.

Totally recommend this beautiful restaurant for a relaxing and intimate evening!

Outdoor patio was awesome and their food too. Service could do better. We were placed under a tent and it was freezing. The heater didn’t work too. When we asked the Manager she said we didn’t have any choice because we were 5. It was too cold and getting uncomfortable. We asked again and they transferred us. I guess we did have a choice. They should not let any one use the tent if it’s freezing and customers need not ask twice. Their food was great though especially their Duck Flatbread and their Truffle Fries. Their Manager or maybe she was the owner can attend a session or two on Customer Service she seemed not to care if we freeze or not?!?😊

During pandemic, I understand how hard of running a restaurant with so many restrictions, however, we all need to follow COVID safety protocol in order to minimize cases up so we all hoping go back to our normal life sooner. Tonight, restaurant was failed. Another customer was brought next to our table without 6 feet in between, to consider we’re mask off during eating, I had to mention this to our server, they made us to move to another table instead of arranged another table for that customer which I think this was quite rude to the customer who made reservations and came before that customer, they said they were trying to keep tables close to the heater. Seriously, this is absolutely wrong during pandemic especially cases are up everyday. For food, steak was very tender so rating would be higher if they did better on table arrangements.

Dear Heidi thank you for your review. We are so disappointed that you had a poor experience dining at our restaurant. We take our Covid-19 safety plan very seriously, and the safety of our staff and guests is our top priority. Unfortunately we failed you: The manager had moved your table closer to a heater and by doing so shifted the carefully measured patio layout. This was a well-intentioned but misguided gesture. We are so sorry this happened, and we will make immediate policy changes.

Fantastic as always! We enjoyed Easter brunch on the patio, with a beautiful view of the lake. We were married at the Heart House 10 years ago, and we are still acknowledged and spoiled when we dine at the restaurant. Thank you Sonya and HeartHouse for your top notch guest service.

Nice way to enjoy outdoor dining during the third wave. Would be great if the restaurant invested in some blankets. Could only choose between covered tenting or propane heating.

Our dining experience from start to finish was wonderful. I did order the Bite of Burnaby option and was pleased with the value, portion size and everything was delicious. We also ordered cocktails which we enjoyed.
Server was pleasant and informative and I felt covid practices were good. Tables spaced very well, and of course masks worn and sanitizer available throughout restaurant. Thank you for providing a delicious meal and pleasant evening for my birthday. We will return.

Early Saturday Dinner (end of Happy Hour) - 'Appies' reasonably priced for Happy Hour.
First time offered as a 'Special', turned out to be a 'Heavenly' Main Course Dinner item - 'Pork Cheeks' on a bed of Polenta and Roasted Brussel Sprouts. Hmmm - must admit, have never before used 'Heavenly' to report on a dish at a restaurant than Michelin-rated ones in Europe. Dinner Partner's Steelhead Trout Dish needs some tweaking to make the grade.
Hart House is a great Burnaby Restaurant with very credible reputation at beautiful Deer Lake Park.

A very pleasant setting for brunch with plenty of free parking. Prices were reasonable and the service was good. The breakfast sausage was a little skinny and different-tasting than what I'm used to, but the rest of the meal was good, and the included fruit was nice.

The food was excellent, bit the service was slow. Server was nice and friendly, but for a restaurant that was fairly empty, service could been better. We waited get water at the table, then there was wait to take the order and an even longer wait to pay our bills. All together we spent almost 2 hours at the restaurant, most of it not eating. Food and ambiance were good.
