My wife and I have been coming to Hart House for 25 years or more. As long as it's been open as a restaurant. We always request a table in the Sun Room and have always been accommodated except for the last 3 times we've visited. Last night, not only did we not get the Sun Room, but ended up in the room directly to the right of reception. A horrible place to eat and the same place we ended up the previous visit. You might as well be at Denny' since it's so bright and uninviting. Not fine dining! Fine dining prices without the fine dining.
The most disconcerting part of the entire evening was not be checked for our Vaccine Passport. If we end up with Covid we'll know where we contracted it. We never thought of it until we had actually ordered our food, otherwise we would not have stayed.
The only good part of the evening was that we eventually ended up in the Sun Room after showing my annoyance. What a horrible way to spend our special evening.
Meal was good but not a showstopper. Wasn’t even hot. Snapper and veggies in a sauce needed to be more than just warm. Nothing made it extra special. A little disappointing really.
I would recommend going with some reservation.
Great business lunch. Wide and varied menu in outstandingly beautiful setting
As always, going to Hart House is a great experience, not only a culinary experience.
The service is excellent, the music, the light...
I'm waiting to come back!
A great place for lunch or dinner. Cotton table clothes and napkins, a place where you can hear your conversations. Food and service are great. A lovely experience.
Celebrated our anniversary, a 2 hr.dinner not rushed, my soup unfortunately was lukewarm but graciously replaced and was much better, lamb was disappointing
This has been a special place for our family for many years so we were happy to share it with friends visiting from Ontario.
Servers were great, very friendly and welcoming. Food was amazing! Can't wait to visit again.
Really good food, you pay for the quality.
Beautiful place for brunch. Make sure to enjoy the patio on warm days.
The overall experience was great, especially our server, really appreciate her hospitality.
Hart House lives up to its stellar reputation! The new chef, Gordon Goss, is establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with in the BC dining industry. The daily feature eggs benedict, generally a red-flag menu item, instead won my unwavering loyalty to Hart House under Goss's influence. Using ingredients like shrimp, halloumi, and duck confit in an eggs benedict is the kind of class-eschewing mad genius the world needs right now. The service was predictably attentive and sociable, taking great care to ensure no mistakes were made or customer left behind. We were able to redeem a years-old voucher signed by a previous manager with no hesitation from the staff, which was a pleasant surprise. All in all, an rewarding, fun experience with unrestrained creativity on full display. Highly encourage new Lower Mainlanders to make the drive! Excellent venue for special events as well.
The food was excellent. The guests were quite noisy and near the window it was cold.
All the staff we interacted with were lovely. The food was absolutely amazing (mushroom/spinach risotto and the tenderloin). The setting was quiet and romantic which was perfect.
Perfectly cooked dishes served in a beautiful heritage House turn restaurant. Love coming here, especially in the summer on their patio!!
Thank you so much for your review!
Presentation of the food was not good. Flavours didn’t blend well.
My niece is going to have her wedding here next October. Our family is very impressed with this venue and excited for her and her fiancé. Absolutely would recommend. We enjoy a lovely lunch prior to seeing the beautifully decorated tent.
Very nice staff and friendly environmen. Service and food was perfect. Highly recommended.
I’ve been several times over the last couple months and has been very enjoyable but noticed that with more people in the restaurant, it’s very hard to talk as it’s gets sooo loud! Food is decent but I wish they had a bigger menu with more food choices. I won’t be going for awhile as menu options are so limited & don’t want to be eating the same thing! Dessert choices are not good so I never order it. Limit to 2 hours & is quite apparent when time is up! Overall is ok.
Very lovely and quaint atmosphere overlooking the lake.
Excellent as usual, have dined here many times.
The lamb sirloin was excellent, my wife had the burger, possibly the best burger she’s ever had!
The manger and servicers are so friendly and relax place to have lunch here
We were welcomed when we arrived in a very friendly manner and shown to our table rather quickly. Our server ( G ) was very pleasant and outgoing. The menu had what we were looking for and the meal was fantastic. We were married at the Hart House 14 years ago and have returned for our anniversary every year since. Thanks again HH. Looking forward to number 15.
This is such a chilled, elegant, romantic escape of a restaurant that features very, very good food and truly hospitable and welcoming service!
The Hart House provides an excellent dining experience with relaxing atmosphere and stunning surroundings.
Charming heritage building, good food, dissent price, spacious setting.
Perfect lunch on patio overlooking Deer Lake. Great food and service!
Relaxing, great atmosphere and lovely food and impeccable service.
One of the best restaurants in metro Vancouver area.
One of our favorite places - friendly, welcoming staff, great food served in a comfortable home style atmosphere.
Great food, lovely setting on the terrace, reasonable prices.
I’ve been back 3 times since my first visit in July. I’m impressed and extremely satisfied with the exceptional food quality and impeccable service. Hart House - you are a class act!!
Had the brunch with a request of chef which was handled without issue.
Nice ambiance and atmosphere and great dining experience. Menu offers a range of choices. Excellent service.
It was a perfect evening - service, food, ambiance, everything was lovely. HIghly recommend this gem.
Three of us used to meet 3-4 times a year before the pandemic. This was our first gathering since Feb 2020. We’re glad we chose this place for our “reunion”. We had so much to catch up and were there for almost 3 hrs. The service was excellent and we never felt pressured to leave. Thanks for a wonderful “reunion”! We’ll surely come back!
Beautiful location with great ambience.
Waitress failed to pour wine refills, offer replacement utensils, bring steak knife.
The menu and food were superb.
We will return.
Dear Keith thank you for your feedback; we appreciate that you took the time. We clearly need to have a staff training session and refresh some of the basic service steps. We look forward to seeing you again!
Beautiful setting. We love to sit in the patio but indoors is beautiful too. Food is always great eventhough selections are small compared to other restaurants. Service is good too.
Fantastic, a secluded cornucopia of sublime delights tucked away in an old tudor style manor with excellent service and a stellar setting.
