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!

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.

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!

It has been several years since we have dined at Hart House, but will not hesitate to do so again much sooner next time. The setting is gorgeous, the service was sterling and the food was delicious and very pleasantly presented. It was our 50th anniversary and we were treated extremely well. Thank you for a memorable evening.

We sat outside, tucked in beside the stairs. Please put a potted plant in the little space in the wall. That way the person who gets the "no view" seat has something nice to look at. Also candles on the tables -- no spotlights please!
This is my only complaint as the ambiance, service and, most importantly, the food was fabulous.

Thank you for your review Maggie! we will take your advice to heart (although we can't use candles at the moment due to a strict fire ban in the park).

It's been a long time since I've been to the Hart House. The location is straight out of a period novel. This heritage home seems in need of some updating but it is quaint nonetheless. My only reason to go to the Hart House is for the ambience and with any luck the food will be good too. I rarely go for brunch because I am all about Sunday breakfast at home but this was a one-off. Eggs benny with the oozy orange glow of good quality eggs over prosciutto and an English muffin...expected and delivered but I would have rather had Canadian bacon or a fresh ham slice instead of prosciutto. I used bits of fruit to counter the saltiness of it. Hashbrowns were okay...fruit salad was okay. Generally okay. We sat out on the patio (group decision) but I would rather have stayed inside, away from the wasps. I prefer to be dining with tablecloths than patio tables...but oh well. Be prepared for unwelcome wasps during or near the end of your meal.

Thank you so much for your review! We appreciate your detailed feedback on the Eggs Benedict. Since our cuisine is Mediterranean inspired Chef Mike opted for the prosciutto over Canadian Bacon. We are very sorry that your experience as a whole seemed to have been lacking. Unfortunately we have little control over wasps, but we will strive to improve our hash browns.

Everything was perfect with the exception of the lamb entree. It’s was over cooked, although still juicy. We didn’t think we were dining late enough for it to be well, well done (7:00 pm), so that was disappointing. However, the steelhead entree was cooked to perfection! We shared a mussels and clams, at the server’s suggestion, and they was a good idea…left room for dessert! They were also very accommodating of any dietary needs we had.

Its a great place with incomparable ambiance. The place itself is astounding from the architecture to the lake view. The food was exquisite. We had the mussels and clams for appetizer, the tenderloin and lamb for the main course. We loved all of it. The overall experience was amazing and we are going to return soon for sure.
