In keeping with the University of Toronto’s efforts to prioritize the safety of the community by encouraging social distancing to help disrupt the chain of transmission of COVID-19, and in compliance with the requirements of both local and provincial authorities, the Gallery Grill restaurant will remain closed until further notice.
From tarte flambè with Arctic char to crème brulée sweetened with our famous maple syrup, Chef Suzanne Baby’s inspired menu has won her a devoted following among Toronto diners.
Renowned for sophisticated weekday lunch and Sunday brunch, Gallery Grill also serves as a stunning setting for private events and receptions. Unwind over signature cocktails by the fireplace, meet for a quick coffee in the cafe, or celebrate a special occasion in one of the University of Toronto’s most beloved spaces.
You can’t beat that room and the brunch was very nice. The waiters are pleasant and very professional (a cut above).
Superb, high quality food every time. Gallery Grill NEVER dissapoints. Wehad the cheese starter with lavash which was very good. There are so many delicious sounding dishes that it was very hard to choose a main – i had the sea bream – delicate and very flavourful – loved the crispy lentils. This was followed by a classic Canuck dessert….. the maple creme brulee – out of this world!!! One of our group had the carrot cake dulce de leche – again, absolutely phenom. Our server was absolutely a delight and made very good rcommendations. Can’t wait to return!
Great food and atmosphere. A wonderful spot for lunch.
Waiter was very brash and a bit harried and was not accurate in describing a refreshment. So I felt too intimidated to tell anyone that my rainbow trout was not cooked at all in the middle.
Always a culinary treat and ambience so lovely! The servers are friendly and attentive.
Always a pleasure with exceptional service. It did feel a bit hurried perhaps because of the midweek daytime reso and having two servers wait on you feels a bit unnecessary and confusing.
Always a great experience at GG. The food is outstanding and the setting is lovely.
A real gem in historic Hart House at University of Toronto. Very good Sunday brunch menu. Very good service.
This charming old place with high ceilings is a bit noisy.
“””””””A beautiful meal, lovely decor and very good service, polite and friendly. The only con – the portions are small, all of them. I had soup, mains and dessert and all were small. I’m not looking for large portions, but a little more of each would make the bill, >”””
We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary over Sunday brunch at the University of Toronto’s Gallery Grill…a lovely Hart House setting overlooking the Great Hall – the venue for our 1980 wedding reception! The dining experience was exceptional in terms of our menu selections as well as the impeccable and attentive service – fanatic attention to detail. We look forward to celebrating future family events at the Gallery Grill! Thanks so much.
Our table for five was in the lounge area of the grill thereby affording us a quiet atmosphere in which to converse. Everyone very much enjoyed their choice for brunch. The steak (with eggs) was exceptionally tender and delicious.
