Very good food with reasonable price

We 7 of us went to this restaurant this Friday. As it was the court house, we had to go thorough security check. The food was very good and tasty.

I was at the Osgood Hall restaurant for a business lunch and this was the first time in about 12 years. I don't know why I don't come here more often. I love the serenity of the room: the wood paneling and the high ceilings. The tables are set a nice distance apart. In addition, because there is no background... More

The restaurant in the Great Hall at Osgoode Hall is simply excellent. The service is superb. The menu is local Canadian fare. The desserts are great and include their famous butter tarts. The setting can't be beat. This is the site of the first law schoool in Upper Canada. There are stained glass windows all around each bearing their own... More

Tucked away in the midst of Osgoode Hall is a wonderful restaurant. Despite having to pass through airport-like security and navigate corridors and stairs, the effort is worth it. Well worth it. Food is simple but delicious. There is a range of menu items from straightforward sandwiches to steak frites. The desserts are fresh and light. It is a great... More

We had other business downtown and were invited to join our host at this establishment. Wow! What an eye opener this visit was! From the moment we were greeted at the door to the time we finished our coffees, we simply were overwhelmed by the service and the atmosphere. As were were not paying, we were very careful to order... More

I had the pleasure of bringing my father to this lovely restaurant for his birthday last month. The service at the restaurant was second to none and the food was beautifully presented and delicious. The staff went out of their way to wish my father well for his big day. I would recommend this restaurant to those that are looking... More

As the Osgoode Hall Restaurant is only open M-F for lunch, it is quite a treat for people who generally do not have the opportunity to experience this place. I recently had the privilege of having lunch here for the first time, and it did not disappoint. Service was excellent, and the three-course chef menu ($22.95) comprising of salmon with... More

What a wonderful venue for a delightful lunch. This restaurant is open to the public September through June from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. and reservations are recommended. The atmosphere is that of a private club, abundant with lawyers, clients, judges and law books. The menu, which I believe changes daily, is not extensive and the wine selection is limited but...

This unique place would be perfect for birthdays or other festive occasions. We ate lunch here last fall and enjoyed it. World-famous lawyers, local movers and shakers...an interesting bunch. The first time that we ate here several years ago, the mayor was enjoying his meal. The historic interior creates an atmosphere unattainable elsewhere. I am done. The end.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
