Very pretty room and an interesting menu. Tried the ricotta gnocchi with a lemon butter sauce and pecorino shavings. Very flavorful and light but the pecorino was too chunky. Wouldn't have wanted grated cheese, but more and thinner shavings would have significantly improved the dish....More

What a location it is absolutely a stunning building on the U of T campus. We had a business dinner, service and food were excellent. I hope to return in my own sometime. Great space for a group

This beautiful restaurant, hidden up in Hart House on U of T campus, is a reliable place for lunch. Can get a bit loud, and often requires an RSVP in advance. (There is a private dining room, if needed.) The menu is small, but well-crafted,...More

Good food, soups and salads. Pasta a little insipid. Pleasant atmosphere. The building looks like an Oxford College.

The Gallery Grill is a great place to meet friends, because the noise level is low — no music! — and the ambience is agreeable. I had the cassoulet and found it to be tasty but visually very boring. All that brown definitely needed something...More

Had a lovely lunch with my aunt, for Winterlicious. The ambience is lively, but austere. Very old, as expected with UofT, as it's situated right in Hart House. A lot of students work here, which I think is superb. The food was delicious, however, the...More

Hart House is a spectacular old school academic building (my favorite building at UofT). And on the 2nd floor over looking the great Hall is the Gallery Grill. Food is always solid with some great fish and vegan options and a sophisticated wine list. But...More

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
