The Hart House location and ambience are lovely, the service is very good, but the food is not as good as it once was. The shaved prime rib sandwich was bland, almost tasteless, and the chocolate dessert was a mess on the plate, with some delicious pieces to it. Overall, the menu choices are less appealing, more mundane than they... More

I planned a celebratory dinner at the Hart House for family members and was not disappointed. The beautifully restored heritage house is both elegant and comfortable; it sets the scene for a gracious evening. We were guided to a table with a beautiful view of the garden and Deer Lake beyond. From the moment we entered, the service was friendly,... More

The menu changes often and the food is always incredible. The put a lot of locally sourced ingredients in their dishes - including herbs grown in their garden. My husband and I love great food but don't like uppity attitudes that often come with it; Hart House is the perfect fit. Also the history of the location is worth hearing.

Recently we met friends for lunch at this former mansion near Deer Lake in Burnaby not far from the freeway into Vancouver, B.C. We were very impressed with the way in which the former grandeur has been preserved and updated. The interior of the restaurant features wide door and window trims and wooden panelling, all of which now painted white.... More

A group of five of us enjoyed a celebration dinner at Hart House, and it was an exquisite experience! The presentation and quality of food was excellent, as was the attentive - but unobtrusive - service. I would recommend the Arctic Char - it was amazing! For dessert, the Mocha Crème Brûlé was wonderful! I can only think of one... More

I certainly don't understand the reviewer who said this was nothing special. They must have been somewhere else. Just had my birthday dinner here with my daughter and it was definitely special. The setting is charming in a lush landscape with a view over extensive lawns to the lake. The mansion is tastefully restored and has an elegant, peaceful atmosphere.... More

Stopped in here for lunch this weekend. Great location in the park; nice heritage house. Great atmosphere; service was good .. not great but good throughout the visit. The menu was small but the group of 6 of us each had no problem selecting something. I had the beef sandwich with truffle fries .. the sandwich was very good; the... More
