Great food and service and an interesting ambiance. I love the fact there is no piped in music and one can carry on a conversation.

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.

Love this place. A hidden gem downtown. Right inside the lovely Osgoode Hall courthouse. Open to the public! Great ambience, excellent service. Small but outstanding menu. Everything is delicious!

Well kept secret in downtown dining. Hidden away inside the magnificent Osgoode Hall. A wonderful high-ceilinged room lined with books. Great food, fast, friendly, professional service. Highly recommend!

A wonderful setting and ambiance for a lovely and delicious lunch with friends. We highly recommend you visit the Grand Library and Court hall after lunch. Osgoode Hall is a jewel in Toronto and to experience it though its restaurant and stately rooms is delightful! Highly recommended!

It was a great experience to visit Osgoode Hall, to walk around after lunch and not be questioned or watched!
The room for lunch was no less than fabulous. I could have stared at the windows forever.
The food was delicious, nicely presented as well as pared wine selection.
The gentleman who served us was extremely professional, confident and had a good sense of humor.
It is appreciated that the public can lunch at one of Canada's historic and prestigious landmarks.
A move to meatless selections is a must everywhere for obvious reasons.
We will return for a tour.
Thank you.

Food has improved a great deal since I was last there years ago. The appetizer of the day was terrific. The presentation of the cod equally so, and the dessert was yummy.

I wouldn’t change a thing, though my table was talking about the noise level being high. But we’re old professional musicians and our hearing is sensitive!

The chicken salad was delicious, with wonderfully crisp and fresh Boston lettuce. We liked everything about the lunch except the limited menu of main dishes: the quiche was was already sold out at 12:20 pm and thus the choices were rather heavy: pasta and beef Wellington.

Fabulous and a best kept secret in fabulous surroundings...and you know the clientele are good at keeping secrets too if you want to have a private lunch meeting (mostly lawyers and judges!). I also half expected to see Harry, Ron, and Hermione at the next table. A+

I do not like this question. I know nothing about the Law Society of Ontario. I will, however, recommend The Osgoode Hall Restaurant to friends and return frequently with my friends . It is a unique dining experience and my quiche yesterday was the best I’ve ever had in Toronto.

As always, Osgoode Hall restaurant provided a superb lunch. Very professional and attentive service, and quiet ambience, though it was on Monday and can be a bit louder on busier afternoons. The food itself was outstanding. We had the Chef's Menu - three courses, prix fixe. The salad course was almost all fresh spring shoots, perfect for a sunny day in May. The entrée was braised beef, tender as could be, with polenta that was both silky in texture and flavourful. The dessert was a crème brulee, but not the run-of-the-mill kind, not here. It was mocha-flavoured and the sugar topping was likely brown sugar, therefore extra caramelly! The only negative was that the prix fixe has risen to $33 per person; with tax and tip a pricey lunch for two. Still, overall a lovely lunch to remember.
