The dining hall is very nice and the food was great. However, service is very slow and not very friendly.

I had been to this place once before for a team event, loved everything that I had to come back with a group of work colleagues. Everything about this place is perfect, food, service and especially the ambiance. It's a hidden Gem.

The primary server did not have a smile that came easy. Was happy to share your restaurant with a visitor from Quebec City.
A meal should be a happy moment and not to feel rushed. Regards

Always enjoy dining here---very comfortable setting for speaking with a friend-i.e. tables separated enough that one is not overhearing the next table's conversation.
Food always good. Staff helpful and respectful.
Wine could have been decanted a little better as we had sediment in our glasses--first time this ever happened.

Looks like the dining hall at Hogwarts! Panelled walls, high ceilings, huge portraits and stained windows, lots of books -- very unique and quiet, charming ambiance.
Menu changes daily (we opted for steak frites, rather than pan seared halibut or quiche) and food is very tasty. Service wasn't great but server was a well-meaning elderly gentleman like a movie character so it added to the fun!
You have to go through a scanner when you get into the building so allow a couple extra minutes. Check it out -- it's like nowhere else!

Loved the stained glass windows and bookshelves. Very different vibe from usual restaurants. I like that the menu changed do frequently. Only negative was the long wait despite reservations as there was only one person at the desk and she would disappear for a long time to seat each group.

The food is usually very good, but this time I was disappointed with the entree. The pasta carbonara was too yellow and the bacon had a strange aftertaste. My companion's butter tart sat in the middle of a bare plate and the filling was runny. I'll go back, but if this had been my first experience, I might not be so inclined.

Recently my mother and I have taken to having lunch and this spot is the perfect place for us! The food and service are always excellent, the noise level is quite manageable for conversation and the atmosphere is really different - stained glass windows, books, wood paneling - old world charm and sophistication. I always look forward to our next visit there!

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.
