Hart House is a perfect brunch treat overlooking Deer Lake. It's a an intimate experience as its patio seating with social distance spacing. A special treat. The Ricotta Waffles were amazing all ingredients fresh and tasty. Staff was exceptional.

The service and food was incredible. Highly recommend the roast chicken. They also have a lovely collection of cocktails. Sitting outside was a bit chilly and they don’t have heaters for all the tables so I recommend bringing an extra sweater/jacket.

The kitchen staff clearly pay attention to small details that elevate the food from good to excellent. Discerning diners will notice the difference. Crispy Parmesan cheese on the focaccia, quality balsamic vinegar, pasta with a blend of strong flavours, unique crispy fries. And the view from the patio is wonderful.

Delicious food. The seafood stew and seafood spaghettini were a little bit spicy but so tasty. They have kids menu available as well which is great for family with picky eaters. The tables are nicely spaced out in the beautiful garden. The staff wear masks. We feel very safe eating their during the pandemic.

Thanks to a great Team at Hart House, we had a very relaxing family gathering, all Covid protocols were observed and still we feel very at ease. Your patio was spaced nicely with heat lamps available if necessary.

Food was outstanding as the Kitchen Team & Chefs put in their hearts to make our experience memorable.

Koduos to Andrew and his coworkers who's name we did not obtain.

Totally recommend this beautiful restaurant for a relaxing and intimate evening!

Outdoor patio was awesome and their food too. Service could do better. We were placed under a tent and it was freezing. The heater didn’t work too. When we asked the Manager she said we didn’t have any choice because we were 5. It was too cold and getting uncomfortable. We asked again and they transferred us. I guess we did have a choice. They should not let any one use the tent if it’s freezing and customers need not ask twice. Their food was great though especially their Duck Flatbread and their Truffle Fries. Their Manager or maybe she was the owner can attend a session or two on Customer Service she seemed not to care if we freeze or not?!?😊

During pandemic, I understand how hard of running a restaurant with so many restrictions, however, we all need to follow COVID safety protocol in order to minimize cases up so we all hoping go back to our normal life sooner. Tonight, restaurant was failed. Another customer was brought next to our table without 6 feet in between, to consider we’re mask off during eating, I had to mention this to our server, they made us to move to another table instead of arranged another table for that customer which I think this was quite rude to the customer who made reservations and came before that customer, they said they were trying to keep tables close to the heater. Seriously, this is absolutely wrong during pandemic especially cases are up everyday. For food, steak was very tender so rating would be higher if they did better on table arrangements.

Dear Heidi thank you for your review. We are so disappointed that you had a poor experience dining at our restaurant. We take our Covid-19 safety plan very seriously, and the safety of our staff and guests is our top priority. Unfortunately we failed you: The manager had moved your table closer to a heater and by doing so shifted the carefully measured patio layout. This was a well-intentioned but misguided gesture. We are so sorry this happened, and we will make immediate policy changes.
