Great! The food was delicious, atmosphere was lovely. Where we were seated the tables were a little close and we could overhear the person at the next table swearing which we could have done with out.

This lovely old restaurant got a new chef (from O & B) a year ago. Unfortunately, he has single-handedly obliterated the quiet atmosphere for which it has been known for centuries. The all-day, unwanted, inappropriate commercial pop music is not conducive to stressed courtroom lawyers discussing their active litigation matters and overworked judges treating their fresh-faced clerks to a peaceful lunch. What a loss. What a shame. How one person is allowed to be so destructive of such a long, cherished tradition should be addressed by the LSO benchers.

The dining room itself is of great architectural interest and the stained glass windows are stunning. The menu offers good choice and the dishes we chose were delicious. Service and value are top notch. And, after dining, you can explore (ssshhh) the library and the Rotunda for further architectural delights.

Wild trout was over cooked, accompanying wild rice salad seemed like it was prepared the day before and too cold. Coffee was not good.

We booked a reservation for 10 for my call to the bar ceremony. The food, wine, service and atmosphere were all perfect. We had a wonderful time. The light coming in through the stained glass windows was lovely.

Great as usual - we are never disappointed but on this visit I have to say that I had the best service I have ever had at Osgoode Hall. Our server was phenomenal and this compliment comes from three industry veterans - all sommeliers!!

Never disappointed but the food (which was always good) is better than I can ever remember. My Icelandic cod main was fresh and perfectly cooked with delicious and well chosen accompaniments. One of the finest kitchens in the city - I’m returning for a business lunch next week!!

This is one of the best kept restaurant secrets in the city. This may not be fine cuisine / dining, but it’s consistently excellent. I’ve been dining there for more than a decade, and continue to recommend it highly.

Beautiful historic room, well maintained. Food was simple and good. Service was professional. Good value.

Hostess was inefficient and did not relate to customers. Just going about doing her job, without any particular heart / passion.

In summary, an enjoyable experience. We will visit again soon.

Osgoode Restaurant is located in a beautiful space at the Law Society of Ontario. With lots of history surrounding us, we enjoyed a delicious and healthy meal. I had the chicken breast and my friend enjoyed the trout. The Belgian chocolate cake was succulent! Prices are excellent for the quality of food, service and chance to dine in a one of kind historic building.

The restaurant is quite unique. You are surrounded by books and stained glass windows in an almost church-library like atmosphere. Service is excellent. The food was good. My soup starter had been heated too hot and was nothing special. My fish main course and dessert were good. My partner chose steak and chips and stated it was the best meal he has eaten in Canada!!!
A wonderful experience! We will be returning again soon.

We ordered the fixed menu. Everyone found the appetizers and soups a bit disappointing. The main course was delicious, as was the dessert. Service was excellent, linen, plates and silverware were clean. Great ambience, and even though the tables are quite close together, the noise level was quite moderate and we could comfortably have good conversations. Would definitely recommend this to friends and colleagues.
