It was a great experience to visit Osgoode Hall, to walk around after lunch and not be questioned or watched!
The room for lunch was no less than fabulous. I could have stared at the windows forever.
The food was delicious, nicely presented as well as pared wine selection.
The gentleman who served us was extremely professional, confident and had a good sense of humor.
It is appreciated that the public can lunch at one of Canada's historic and prestigious landmarks.
A move to meatless selections is a must everywhere for obvious reasons.
We will return for a tour.
Thank you.

Food has improved a great deal since I was last there years ago. The appetizer of the day was terrific. The presentation of the cod equally so, and the dessert was yummy.

The chicken salad was delicious, with wonderfully crisp and fresh Boston lettuce. We liked everything about the lunch except the limited menu of main dishes: the quiche was was already sold out at 12:20 pm and thus the choices were rather heavy: pasta and beef Wellington.

I do not like this question. I know nothing about the Law Society of Ontario. I will, however, recommend The Osgoode Hall Restaurant to friends and return frequently with my friends . It is a unique dining experience and my quiche yesterday was the best I’ve ever had in Toronto.

As always, Osgoode Hall restaurant provided a superb lunch. Very professional and attentive service, and quiet ambience, though it was on Monday and can be a bit louder on busier afternoons. The food itself was outstanding. We had the Chef's Menu - three courses, prix fixe. The salad course was almost all fresh spring shoots, perfect for a sunny day in May. The entrée was braised beef, tender as could be, with polenta that was both silky in texture and flavourful. The dessert was a crème brulee, but not the run-of-the-mill kind, not here. It was mocha-flavoured and the sugar topping was likely brown sugar, therefore extra caramelly! The only negative was that the prix fixe has risen to $33 per person; with tax and tip a pricey lunch for two. Still, overall a lovely lunch to remember.

Always enjoy dining here---very comfortable setting for speaking with a friend-i.e. tables separated enough that one is not overhearing the next table's conversation.
Food always good. Staff helpful and respectful.
Wine could have been decanted a little better as we had sediment in our glasses--first time this ever happened.

Looks like the dining hall at Hogwarts! Panelled walls, high ceilings, huge portraits and stained windows, lots of books -- very unique and quiet, charming ambiance.
Menu changes daily (we opted for steak frites, rather than pan seared halibut or quiche) and food is very tasty. Service wasn't great but server was a well-meaning elderly gentleman like a movie character so it added to the fun!
You have to go through a scanner when you get into the building so allow a couple extra minutes. Check it out -- it's like nowhere else!

The food is usually very good, but this time I was disappointed with the entree. The pasta carbonara was too yellow and the bacon had a strange aftertaste. My companion's butter tart sat in the middle of a bare plate and the filling was runny. I'll go back, but if this had been my first experience, I might not be so inclined.
