I brought my daughter for lunch to celebrate her being accepted to Osgoode Law school and it was perfect. The staff and the atmosphere were beautiful and so appreciated. Thank you

Went to Osgood for lunch with friends, the atmosphere is really great, you are in an expansive elegant room with books on every wall. A lovely atmosphere for a meal. The service was attentive and friendly and the food was great. Two of us ordered the club sandwich and the other person ordered steak and salad, everything was excellent. The restaurant is one of the best values in downtown Toronto for a fine dining experience. The club had a real whole chicken breast (not the processed slices) and the portion size was generous. I would highly recommend this place to anyone in the downtown core.

I enjoy the ambience of the dining room and have always enjoyed whatever I choose from the menu.
The practicality of the location close to the TTC subway is a definite plus.
Staff are always pleasant and welcoming.
Could benefit from more appealing and closer to dining room washrooms for women.

The food was delicious, a bit on the pricey side though. The service was a little too slow as even though both of us had to rush back to court (and we notified our waiter of this), it still took him a while to get back to us with the bill. We were surprised that such a large and prestigious restaurant has only one debit machine.

Has always been one of Downtown Toronto’s best kept only luncheon secrets. Everything on their menu whether a la carte or prixfix is excellent, good, high quality and accessible food, and the limited wine list is excellent. All hits, no misses, Service is polite, friendly and efficient. At holidays, the one big, high-ceiling room can be crowded and noisy, otherwise good, quiet conversation is possible. Clientele are generally but not necessarily lawyers and firm staff. Nonetheless it’s a comfortable, civilized, attractive, old Ontario type venue. Avg $50 each.

We are a group of seven former co-workers who get together regularly for lunch and to catch up with one another.

We began to have our Christmas Lunch at Osgoode Hall restaurant quite a few years ago. The decor - wood panelling, stained-glass windows, high ceilings evokes a Christmas feel.

The menu is varied but most of our members enjoy the turkey prix fixe - appetizer, main and dessert which at about $25 is quite reasonable. Table staff are very efficient and discreet.

All in all, just the right place for the occasion!

Every year we attend as a group for the festive pre fixe menu. This year, all 8 of us arrived with bells on at 12.30 to be told that they were already out of the turkey dinner. You were out of your most popular dish 1/2 an hour after you opened? Wow. In addition, they were also already out of the other pre fixe menu special. Wow again. One would think that Osgoode has been doing these meals long enough that they really should have a handle on how to be prepared for their customers.

We have a Christmas tradition of lunch at Osgoode Hall. It is always a treat. The setting is beautiful. The food is delicious. The price is extremely reasonable for the quality. The value can be seen in the difficulty of securing reservations. I would suggest that they should consider a dinner seating during the Christmas season. We will be back!

I don’t often write reviews but I would regret not having written this one because it deserves it. I brought my goddaughters with me for lunch on december 7th and I believe our waiter was Andrew (?). I hope I have his name correctly because he deserves all the accolades for making our lunch a fantastic Christmas lunch with a 16 and 13 yr old. He was so attentive and kind and the service was excellent. All of this staff were so gracious and the food was very good. Thank you

The idea of passing through a security screening to get to lunch may sound off-putting to some, but it was actually quick and painless. The venue, inside historic Osgoode Hall, provided an unique experience for my American friends. So we started with an historic setting and also enjoyed the wonderful ambiance-quiet and therefore easy for conversation. The menu, while not extensive, is sufficiently varied. None of us could resist the three course prix fixe daily special. The rainbow trout was perfectly prepared and tastefully presented. The pear tart the perfect culmination. Note made to self to always come at noon as the daily special is reportedly (and understandably) frequently sold out by 1PM. The service was excellent: prompt and efficient. Incredibly good value. Entrance through the doors on east side quickest and most direct; entrance through the main south doors more impressive and well signed.

We always enjoy dining at Osgoode Hall. There is good variety on the menu which is updated every month. I am a fairly plain eater and my fallback menu item is the Chicken Club sandwich on multigrain bread. Always good and the Krinckle cut chips are delicious!
