This was our first experience at Hart House. We took advantage of the Dine Out Vancouver event. The staff was very nice, courteous and attentive.

The food was good, but I wold have liked more greens/veggies with my 'confit de canard'.

Thank you!

Karla was friendly and a good server. However the lunch special was somewhat disappointing to me and my guest. The flat bread was hard and made eating the sandwich difficult and messy. We let her know this. The chicken was very tender but overall not very flavourful. The Rosemary parm fries were delicious. The cheesecake was tasty and the lattes hot!

my partner and I had Valentines day brunch, was very much enjoyed and very uniquely enjoyed the winter landscape from the fairly novel snow fall for the area. Was the first time that I had tried the waffles would recommend them to new patrons, of course had to have a side pork belly which is always crispy and flavourful

This restaurant is by far one of the top romantic restaurants in Metro-Vancouver. This mansion of a house converted to a restaurant gives it a comfortable feel that is nicely paired with a fireplace and great view of Burnaby Lake. The ambiance has a unique antique yet modern feel that feels welcoming. It's the perfect stage for a great date or a couples celebration. The restaurant has many different rooms with unique features that can be used for either a great romantic setting or a quiet place for a business meeting. I've had the pleasure to enjoy both.
Ultimately, the food and service is what makes it stand out. The staff is cordial and attentive to your needs. I'm always impressed at how well the kitchen staff timing is delivering all the courses as you finish your previous.
The food is simply delightful as it hits your senses. The visual presentation is always on point, the aromas, textures and taste. All these combined in perfect harmony to deliver a great experience.
I've been coming to this restaurant for the last six years and look forward to continuing this tradition. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants to enjoy a great experience.

Dear Gus Thank you so much for your detailed review. We truly appreciate that you took the time to share your experience. We are so thrilled that you and your wife enjoyed your dinner at Hart House. Being open for Valentine's was a very special time for us as well, since many couples have not been out to restaurants for a long time, and we wanted to make sure everyone had a perfect evening while feeling confident about their safety.. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

We tried the dine out menu. You can tell they place a lot of thought and effort to craft their dishes. Some flavors were surprising. Overall, the quality of food was great and service was very friendly and welcoming even when we were dining with a little toddler.

From the moment, I entered, with the view of the large fireplace, to our exit, the evening was perfect. My cocktail, a New Fashion Martini, a recommendation from our server - was delicious. My husband said his steak was cooked exactly as requested. The service was paced nicely out, not rushed, but an easy flow. The only draw back was the choice of music at times, I would have liked it to be quieter; but we could still communicate easily. The heritage building on the lake provided a beautiful setting for a lovely evening out.

what a lovely way to enjoy a full filling breakfast brunch meal, while over looking the calm serene waters of deer lake with the modern sky line of towers that make up the metro town area of Burnaby, it's not just food which is suburb and the friendly service.
