    I've walked by The Chef's House and always wondered what it was like. Yesterday I stopped walking past an went in. I was very pleasantly surprised by what I found. The lunch I ordered was delicious. Not a generous serving, but it was definitely appreciated. Our server was very nice, as was everyone there. I'm definitely going to return for another lunch!

    Giving 5 stars for everything seems over the top but I think it's justified. It is busy so not for a quiet dinner but so much to see. Staff were friendly. And the food was great. I am a mushroom lover and they piled on the porcinis. If course it is students so asking tough questions -where do you source your mushrooms - did not get an answer. Fair enough. Loved the tv screen so we could watch prep. A play by play announcer ? ; )

    Had an amazing time at "The Chefs' House"! We grabbed seats at the bar and got totally sucked into watching the kitchen hustle – it’s like live food TV but better. The service was spot-on. They were there when you needed them without hovering too much. And the food, oh the food, it tasted as good as it looked, which says a lot because it was pretty stunning. Definitely check this place out if you’re into seeing how your food is made and want to eat something that’s as much a treat for your eyes as for your taste buds.

    Please visit! The service was top notch and the food presentation artful and delicious. Our server, Jamie, provided good recommendations for a wine pairing with my meal while my partner enjoyed the selection of cocktails. This restaurant can easily compete with any of Toronto's elite restaurants but the pricing matches your local family spot.

    A lovely experience. Great value, very good food and attentive ( perhaps a little too attentive) service. It has to be taken into consideration that these are students in training. The sincerity and effort is charming. We will definitely be back when the menu changes. Highly recommended.

    From the moment we walked in to be greeted by Ainsley & Jamie who presented as front door and as our server they both reflected the establishment in the best possible light. The soundtrack was eclectic and very good. The food and time to be served ten out of ten. We shall spread the word.

    This restaurant provides is a unique dining experience…helping hospitality and culinary students. Food is exquisite, art on a plate! Service is good. It’s fun to see the young people working so hard to learn the ins and ours of waiting on tables. A great spot. Lunch (Winterlicious) was delicious. There is a pause between the lunch service and the dinner service. We were not rushed in any way after lunch….

    The menu offers variety and great quality. The pace of serving the different dishes is excellent. Some of the wait staff may need some further training as there seems to be a slight communication confusion, although overall they are attentive and well trained. We had a very enjoyable meal and we highly recommend your restaurant.

    The experience was amazing. The food was the greatest quality, the flavours of the dishes were dashing. It is amazing to be able to see the students cooking and you cannot even tell the food is made by students if they do not tell you. The service was exceptional and it is 100000% worth it for the money, since it is pretty cheap for a gourmet meal.

    We came here last night for their Winterlicious menu. - Really great bang for the buck! - I’ve visited The Chef’s House multiple times during Winterlicious/Summerlicious and it never disappoints. - I love how you can get a fine dining experience at a lower price. Our table was especially large and our area was spacious, so it was great for placing all my camera gear and personal items. - I was impressed with my main course (sea bream) and dessert (lemon tart)! - You could tell that staff were really trying to deliver exceptional service. -Also love how they had multiple areas for guests to hang their coats. I would give 4.5/5 stars overall

    Thank you for the opportunity to review this fabulous lunch. My sister and I had the Winterliscious menu, and enjoyed it thoroughly. Flavour and presentation were topnotch and we had excellent service. We couldn't tip but did send funds for scholarships. Over all, it was outstanding.
