This is a nice downtown restaurant with friendly employee-mostly students from GBC , and exceptionally good plates for reasonable prices.

We had a wonderful experience. My only critique is that I had ordered the 4 course dinner, but the server forgot one of my courses. I only got charged for 3 courses, and in the end it was plenty of food (I would have been too full if I had all 4), so it worked out fine. I'd go again - the quality was great.

I think the wait staff need a better command of English - communication proved to be quite a bit challenging and as well the wait staff (Jenny) was not able to describe any of the dishes only to read the menu for us, which we were quite capable of doing

Ambience was nice, servers could not understand English very well, everything was very very rushed, appys were good, mains slightly over cooked and not hot, dessert very good.

Our only complaint was portion size. Both males in our party said the portions were a little light.

I will recommend this place to friends. A hidden little gem that I wasn't aware of until I was searching for restos in the King East area. Good value for money and great choices on the pre fixe menu.

Our dinner was fantastic. We were celebrating my son's 16th birthday and he chose the restaurant as he is interested in becoming a chef. The staff showed him around between courses and explained the various jobs within the kitchen. But back to the food... it was all incredible. We will be back.

Food was great. The only thing we noticed was the menu on line was different from the menu at the restaurant (on wall outside) which was different from what was on the table. We like to plan our meal and see if the food is what we want to eat and then book the table. All should be the same

We had a lovely birthday/anniversary dinner at The Chef's House. I would like to have been able to tip our wait staff directly, as they were so conscientious, but the rule is to share tips at the end of term.

This was our visit to the Chef's House and we were very happy with the two-course lunch. We weren't expecting fresh focaccia and dip, so that was a nice starter. The background music was quiet and pleasant, adding to the relaxed experience. We have already recommended Chef's House to a friend, and we will return.

Great opportunity for young chefs to highlight their creativeness. Great value for a 4 course menu. Servers need further training perhaps a preshift could be beneficial

A lovely atmosphere in an interesting part of the city. Eating here gives you good food and service and the opportunity to contribute to an educational experience for the young wait staff and cooks. My friend and I went to celebrate a special birthday and mentioned this to the floor supervisor. When we got our dessert, hers had "happy birthday" written in chocolate on the rim of her plate. Very classy! I would go again and encourage others to do the same. Getting a reservation at noon is not easy but well worth the effort.

We were welcomed and seared. Our server Monika was very pleasant and accommodating.
We selected a glass of wine as we celebrated a special occasion. The chef came out and chatted briefly with us. Then my husband selected the Italian menu. I chose the best root salad, the Cornish hen dinner with the apple pie dessert.
All was delicious.
