Very much worth the visit. Staff is very attentive. Food is tasty. Might be trying a bit to hard to be unique/cutting edge in some things. Fresh bread and spreads were fantastic ! Had Duck Tortellini and would order it again any time

The food is excellent - it is a very humbling place to eat as you see the pride in the chefs and the intent attitude of the hospitality servers as they try to ensure you have the best dining experience.

It is my favorite place to eat in the city and it make me proud that George Brown allows us to experience the success of their programs.

a great find! The chefs in training produced a spectacular dining experience. Some of the meals were maybe a bit basic taste wise … but The plating was outstanding and overall experience exceeded expectations. Great value for money (and you're investing in the next great chef!)

We had the post-graduate Italian chef’s special meal
And it was absolute delicious. The timing of drinks/meal was not perfect but the food made up for it.
Can’t wait to go back. Great space.

It was our first visit to The Chef's House. We loved it - from the ambience to the service to the food. Wonderful to see that OpenTable is asking about the noise level. Thankfully this is a place where you can speak comfortably to your lunch companions. A terrific vibe!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Winterlicious lunch. We especially loved the lamb shank and lemon tart! We had a couple of opportunities to chat with the chef whose menu was being featured that day (Craig?), and enjoyed hearing about his time in Italy and how it enhanced his culinary skills.

We had a fantastic winterlicious meal. The food was great and presented well. The service was great but almost a bit 'too much' .. every time I took a sip she was over refilling my glass :) My only issue was that we were given a terrible table. I booked many weeks in advance and were given a table that was just stuck back by the coats! There were just two of us and we were given a table for four but two of the chairs were taken away and it just felt like the table shouldn't have even been there. The food was great but it just ruined the atmosphere to be stuck in this weird spot.

Wonderful experience; food was great and so was service, especially with a nice touch for the person celebrating his birthday - thank you! One note: the servers should get some intro to wine serving and pairing. Maybe George Brown College could get into some partnership with Brock University - that would certainly provide the students with great opportunity to learn about wines. Otherwise, it was fantastic evening. Thank you again.

Five of us came here during Winterlicious during our lunch hour, had reservations for 12:15 and were seated right away. Food was very good, but service was very slow (it was not busy at all). Our meal didn’t come until close to 1pm. And then we had to flag staff down for tea/coffee and then again for the bill at close to 2pm. Kudos to the chefs/cooks though. Not sure I’d come back if I was pressed to get in and out within an hour or so.

I went for the Winterlicious event BUT was pleasantly surprised when a chef from the school was being featured as well (Jordan Diniz). His menu offering was the same pricing as the Winterlicious offering, the difference being that Jordan was featuring a three or four course based on his experiencing "apprenticing" in France. You could also mix and match from both menus, which I thought was very accommodating.

I went for the entire offerings from Jordan's menu ad was NOT disappointed. His fusion of his own creativity and the knowledge he gleaned from his experience in France made for a delicious tasting and an outstanding culinary delight. His main course of duck was quite spectacular both to the palate and the eyes.

More engaging was the conversation with Jordan as he visited every table to give a talk about his menu and the choices in terms of the preparation and his experimentation with his local and overseas knowledge.

Bravo!

The cuisine made from scratch was delicious from start to finish. Homemade rolls at recess or warm with what cuisine butter and spread or enjoyable. The entrées offered great selection and pallet pleasing tastes.

Music was a bit loud at one point and not conducive to dining and discussions. All was accomodated including fzcilities and a grand maitre d’hotel. Shall have more birthday celebrations at The Chef’s House. Merci!

We had a wonderful first lunch experience. Surprised that a special Italian menu was being offered in addition to the menu that was posted online. Given that it was the last day of the special Italian menu and the fact the the chef introduced himself and his special menu, 3 out of 4 of us had to go Italian. Everything was delicious. Particularly impressed with the lovely root veggie salad and uniquely smoke infused pasta. However, service was rather slow. Servers were all very pleasant, but a bit hesitant in delivery which will undoubtedly improve over time. Website menu should be updated to include special menus. Will definitely return!
