Staff are great - they remember regular customers! I always feel welcome.
The food was beyond amazing, the dishes were made with love and you can taste it. My family and I spend over 3 hours there and loved every second. Waiter was kind and helpful! It was truly a memorable experience.
My wife and I had a late valentines dinner here and loved it!
Don’t think menu is as good as it use to be partner disappointed with menu
Enjoyed meal from beginning to end, we had the oysters for appy, tenderloin and burger for main. Excellent
This is a gem - beautiful tudor-style mansion on a lake with white table cloths and proper settings that is rare to find in Vancouver anymore. The atmosphere is rare to find at the same menu pricing as most restaurants. With views over the sprawling lawn and Deer Lake, the experience is hard to beat.
Try Sunday brunch --- lovely! Or sitting out on the patio in the sunshine - outstanding!
Quite disappointed in the Valentines Day set menu we had last night. I went with my wife and although the service and setting were at least worth 4 stars the food was only worth 2 stars. Hence my 3 star rating. Nothing really stood out as great food. When I pay $88.00 per person I expect GREAT food. Nothing was bad (sandy scallops might be the exception - but were cooked perfectly). The appetizers were kind of boring (the cornmeal "pancake" and arctic char combination was truly tasteless) . The oysters three ways were pretty decent (the cucumber oyster was boring). The shared truffle risotto plate was ok but nothing special, the flavour was dominated by the Parmesan, the smoked carrots got completely lost -(very oddly served too as a communal share plate with two small bread plates given to each person but no spoon to serve - we scooped it up with our forks). The beef dish was good (very small portions and no side) and the scallops were good save the beach hardware mentioned above (loved the little cauliflower breaded bites though),. The cheesecake and chocolate tart were very yummy and done well - definitely the high-point of the night.
While the restaurant itself is quite cute and clean, the service and food fall flat on its face in all regards. May be worth it if this was priced perhaps $30 cheaper per person. Considering this is not the case, I will review the restaurant at the price point they prescribed @ $185 before tip for two people. I will be only noting the notable dishes in this review. Anything not mentioned would be defined as average.
This price range and course descriptions suggests they are fine dining, they are anything but. Starting with service, it was lack luster throughout the meal with no dish descriptions, overly casual, not taking away dishes.
The table bread they serve tastes terrible, and served with hard cold butter... One of the first times in my life I didn't even manage to eat a single slice. Also the server never took away the bread that we were clearly not eating the entire meal.
Truffle risotto was more like carrot risotto. Truffles shaved rather than infused, but low quality truffles make it nearly undetectable. The truffles were further masked by the slightly under cooked carrots that made the dish too sweet and carrot like. Their first attempt was under seasoned and it was sent back. They tried again but now overly salty, but it was much improved. Very strange they decided that this would be a dish that came shared... This is extremely unusual for fine dining, and especially a savory dish. Maybe its a play on valentines day, but that presentation seemed more lazy than romantic.
Beef dish was very small (one tiny slice of beef), all the sides were basically untouched because they didn't really do anything for the palette.
Scallops were cooked nicely, but overly salted on top. Was biting through chunks of salt on the 4 scallops they served for the entree.
Desserts were a complete failure. Cheesecake had an awful taste, chocolate tart was too hard and too much caramel.
Just don't go. You can go to Hawksworth for similar cost.
Great restaurant in an old mansion with beautiful view over Deer Lake and Burnaby
Dined at Hart house for lunch on Valentine's day
Food was outstanding
Presentation and taste were top notch
Service was courteous
The heritage building is elegant and is actually quite spacious inside
Will come again
Excellent dining experience in a beautiful heritage building!
Great food and fabulous old European feel. Would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
Absolutely love this place. We went here as a small group for a birthday celebration. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere of the place is beautiful. Would come again!
The food was delicious! I would definitely come back for any special occasion.
This restaurant in a heritage home is an experience of its own. Someone greeting you at the door and checking your coat. Your glass never runs dry. The food was creative and delicious. The descriptions don’t do it justice. They don’t look like large portions but I was full at the end of my 3 courses from dine out Vancouver.
Everything seems fine except the gentleman brought us to the table pull chair out for me but didn’t push it back in behind me ... I have to pull the chair in by myself ...
I loved the comfortable atmosphere and the service was friendly and considerate. Great food. We went as a group of friends and it was not too loud so we were able to have a conversation. Loved our experience!
This is a nice place for a more fine dining experience. Service was attentive and polite and food portions were just right.
Left quite satisfied.
Highly recommended, I am and always will be, a return customer. Cozy atmosphere, intimate dinning and very attentive staff make this a complete experience.
WE camde to celebrate our wedding anniversary, as we have done for several years. The food and the service were as good as they always have been.
