Really perfect for what we wanted - a relaxed friendly dinner with old friends. Service was pleasant and upbeat, but not excessive. Food was just right. Thanks.

The food was fabulous and the service was genuine, but not 100% polished. If you come in knowing it’s a training ground, and know you’re part of the lesson, you’ll both enjoy the experience and forgive the *very * slight service misses. Come back and you’ll see how the staff grow and improve through the year. Also, you really can’t beat the value! I truly enjoy this spot, and can’t recommend it highly enough!

I highly recommend The Chef's House. A fine dining experience for a very reasonable price. The menu is a choice from at least 3 selections, of each starter, entree and dessert at a fixed price. We were there for lunch and the portions were appropriately sized and artfully presented. The trout was grilled perfectly and the sous vide steak was tender in a delicious bean ragu. My only comment for an improvement is the service was attentive and eager, although felt slightly rehearsed instead of fluid. Having said that, this is expected in a teaching environment. I would highly recommend this restaurant and intent to come back many times.

As always, The Chef's House did not disappoint. The food is always meticulously prepared and well presented. While the menu options are somewhat limited, there is something for most palates and everything is always so delicious. Our server was a little inexperienced and slightly awkward, but knowing this is a live environment for students learning the industry, that minor shortcoming is easy to overlook. And the price is amazing! Thoroughly recommended.

Value for money and variety is always good here. Some of the dishes are hit or miss and there were a few small issues with service.

Table of five. Appetizers were generally great (potato soup with seafood in particular!). Tri tip steak in main course was a bit tough, chicken with peach chutney was interesting, but salmon was likely the best. For desert the Paris Brin was a let down. The dark chocolate sorbet was great.

Enthusiastic staff and a creative menu. I recommend this place for food and service. The venue is not fancy , just functional, but hey, this is a college. It's about practicing, not about styling. And prices are very attractive for what you get. Fun watching the frenzy in the open kitchen.

The menu wasn’t as good as previous menus. The sous vide beef dish was tough. Salmon was slightly undercooked with good flavours on the side.
Service was good to replace dishes for something else.
Other times this place has been great for both food and service.

I remember years ago going to George Brown College at the Nassau Campus to eat with my high school cooking class. Quite different from this time. It wasn't as fancy back then as it was time. They back then just concentrated on the food taste. The presentation now is incredible, I| loved the Curried Carrot Soup.

Delicious meal part of the Summerlicious summer 2019.
The restaurant could add a Better wines from
California to their wine list, also expand their price range
to offer more choices.

I know it a teaching restaurant so I will be a little more critical than I am usually so things will improve. We ordered drinks which we wanted to start with but they arrived at the same time as the appetizer. Sorry, but a Margarita just doesn't go with Artic Char. The appetizer was delicious. We both ordered the spinach ricotta tortellini which was a bit tough and chewy. The pasta didn't have that nice buttery softness to it. The filling was very tasty though. The lemon semi-freddo was runny and could have been a bit more tangy so that the difference between the lemon and raspberries worked better. We still enjoyed our lunch however. Felt pretty ignored by the service though. We actually had to track them down to get our bill!

A great dining experience was had. A polished space that is ripe for the education of its George Brown students.
A place of learning that delivers a high standard of service and executes it’s menu demonstrating many technical culinary levels.
We will go again.

We had dinner/summerlicious at the Chef's House this week. The service was not 5 star but not sure it is supposed to be? These are young waiters/cooks under the wings of established cooks. Our appetizers and desserts were OK. The main I found under par for my liking. I would recommend only if a visitor of another country came and was a cook in their country and wanted to see up and coming chefs. Otherwise I will pass! Thanx.

Thank you for a most enjoyable evening; creative tastes; beautifully present foods on the plate; attentive service; we had the prime table which was most accommodating to one handicapped guest. Can't say enough about a terrific experience.

Like the restaurant atmosphere. Chicken was tender and drink (Pineapple & Thai Chili Lemonade) was good. Our server was polite and smiled a lot but might need to be introduced what black coffee means. Coffee wasn't too impressive. Food were well-decorated and tasty. Maybe less MSG should be used because found out thirsty afterward.
