The pasta was quite bland, skin on chicken was not crispy and browned.

This was our visit to the Chef's House and we were very happy with the two-course lunch. We weren't expecting fresh focaccia and dip, so that was a nice starter. The background music was quiet and pleasant, adding to the relaxed experience. We have already recommended Chef's House to a friend, and we will return.

This is the second time we have eaten here in less than 3 months and both times one person has had to wait over 10 minutes to get their dessert.

Great opportunity for young chefs to highlight their creativeness. Great value for a 4 course menu. Servers need further training perhaps a preshift could be beneficial

A lovely atmosphere in an interesting part of the city. Eating here gives you good food and service and the opportunity to contribute to an educational experience for the young wait staff and cooks. My friend and I went to celebrate a special birthday and mentioned this to the floor supervisor. When we got our dessert, hers had "happy birthday" written in chocolate on the rim of her plate. Very classy! I would go again and encourage others to do the same. Getting a reservation at noon is not easy but well worth the effort.

We were welcomed and seared. Our server Monika was very pleasant and accommodating.
We selected a glass of wine as we celebrated a special occasion. The chef came out and chatted briefly with us. Then my husband selected the Italian menu. I chose the best root salad, the Cornish hen dinner with the apple pie dessert.
All was delicious.

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.

My husband and I had lunch here on March 11th ... absolutely wonderful from reception to dessert... the service, food were excellent.
We love trying new restaurants...eat out on on regular basis ... and we had been trying to get a reservation for quite awhile ... as we all know, the restaurant hours align with the school schedule ...
So very worth the wait!! .. we both agree that the (3 course) meal was definitely one of the best we have ever had! ...

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.
