    Very Nice Little Restaurant

    Our evening started by driving down the north side of the escarpment which offered us a fantastic view of the city of Hamilton and the mountain. The parking lot for the restaurant was full - but there was plenty of free municipal parking nearby. The restaurant is located in a charming heritage home and upon entering we immediately felt warm and welcome. Following drink orders, (Micro-brewed beer $6 and glass of house red $10) and getting over the initial sticker shock, the waiter tempted us with some wild mushroom soup ($9), which came with a dollop of creme fraiche and a good waft of black truffle. My wife really wanted to order the truffle gnocci first course which was raved about in a review in Zoomer magazine, but it was sadly no longer available. She had the pickerel feature ($32) while I couldn't resist the beef tenderloin prepared medium rare ($40). A nice assortment of home-baked breads and some irresistable little breadsticks were offered, followed by a delectable amuse bouche. Our perfect meals arrived in good time, and desert was offered - but we were all too full, a testament to the portion size. Still, a small plate of too-hard-to-resist handmade chocolate truffles arrived regardless, and we found some room afterall. I can't wait to go back.

    Culinary Art is alive and well in Dundas

    I read about Quatrefoil on Air Canada's in-flight magazine as one of Canada's top 10 new restaurants. I was amazed and delighted that this was not in Toronto! I went there for lunch with a colleague and it was amazing. The appetizers were beautifully done. I tried the whimsically named "All Day Breakfast". The crisp duck egg was absolutely incredible. My colleague tried the scallop which was beautifully presented. The main course of Rainbow Trout and Lamb Shank was cooked to perfection. The wine list was extensive but not overwhelming and reasonably priced. The service was attentive and friendly. Not the cheapest lunch I have ever had but well worth it.

    Just perfect!

    We celebrated a recent wedding anniversary having lunch at this PERFECT restaurant in Dundas. Everything that we had - from appetizers right down to coffee - was simply over-the-top. Please forgive the adjectives. This place, the servers and the chef richly deserve them! I'd say that all of the dishes that we ate had a definite and contemporary Western/Southern European touch - along with a light, ‘local’ Canadian tone, too. Well, that's not surprising. We'd heard somewhere that the chef (Fraser) had trained in Europe for a few years. It's a gorgeous restaurant in a large and handsome old home. Yet, it's very clean, contemporary and elegant inside. The service was prompt and impeccable. We've eaten in terrific places in Toronto, Montreal and B.C. (e.g. Sooke Harbour House, Vij's and Lumiere) and also in California, France, Spain and Italy. And we think that the unique and perfectly prepared and seasoned food at Quatrefoil ranks up there with the best of them. The butter (served with our lovely mixed artisan breads) was mixed with fresh herbs that included chopped chives, parsley and tarragon. Just delicious. One appetizer was a fresh-tasting (and beautiful) corn soup. Another appetizer was small, hot parsleyed gnocchi mixed with baby squash and tiny tomatoes, with a wonderful light sauce made with top quality XV olive oil. I was so tempted to cancel my main order and to order another serving of this mouth-watering gnocchi dish. (The BEST that I have ever tasted). One main was Eggs Benedict and it was wonderful. The other main was mussels mixed with finely chopped Spanish Chorizo and a nice broth. Also delightful. We shared one dessert with our *very* fresh coffee (which they served in a French Press) - lavender creme brûlée, a delicate lavender cookie and a fresh plum sorbet. Perfectly done. We also had some really good Ontario artisan beer (Wellington) and a glass of good white wine from Fielding Estates. We shared 2 glasses of sparkly, compliments of the house. Perhaps a bit pricey just for lunch (all in, for $115), but, it was so wonderful that it was truly worth it. We left feeling very well fed and so thrilled that we’d found this special place!

    Freakin' Amazing

    Second visit - even better than the first. I had the scallop & porkbelly app while my wife had the gnocchi. Both were excellent. For mains I had the Tuna special and the lady had the beef. Both were fantastic. Hats off to the chef for some very interesting food matchups. Nothing you'd necessarily expect to see together but it all seems to work out once it's in your mouth. Presentation was beautiful and the restaurant itself is quite nice. Fabulous food and worth the money. I've paid the same at other restaurants and been incredibly disappointed.

    Quatre Nice

    Beautiful patio to have lunch on! Food was lovely. Pretty to look at and great to eat. Sampler of daily corn soup was unbelievable! I'd just eat that all day long. Portion size adequate for lunch but hope dinner is larger. Risotto slightly under seasoned with no option on table to adjust

    A truly next-level meal; the chef’s tasting menu was innovative, delicious, thoughtful and memorable. And the service - completely on point. Quatrefoil lives up to its reputation, and then some.

    Went to Quatrefoil for our 15th wedding anniversary. We will definitely be going back. Attention to detail, personal attention from our waiter Kyle and the rest of the staff was top notch. Food was excellent. We enjoyed the Friday night Tasting menu. Wine pairings were spot on and the scallops and arctic char may be the best I have had! My wife and I were not over the moon about the striploin, but one not perfect course is allowed - the wine pairing made up for it!

    So we had a bit of a rocky start the waiter was new and a bit awkward and our 1st course appetizers were not hot they re did them and they were still not great. But after that a manager stepped in and they gave a free app smoked salmon which was a amazing with a wine pairing and our main courses and dessert did not disappoint. The situation was well handled we also were given a new more experienced waiter.

    We are always pleased with the service and food from Quatrefoil. The mushroom soup “of the day” was nice and creamy and the smoked salmon had the perfect balance of acidity and sweetness. The beef tenderloin tips were cooked to perfection and the beet and pomme purée was an excellent accompaniment on the plate. We are somewhat disappointed that the foie gras torchon is only available at dinner. Overall an exceptional dining experience

    Everything from start to finish was absolutely fantastic. The server knew every detail of every dish on the menu (I wish I remembered his name, he was a French-Canadian fellow, and was outstanding). On top of the complementary wine to taste at the start, which we didn't expect, at the end of our meal we were also served moscato and chocolates/macaroons on the house for our anniversary. All I have to say is that is place truly worth every penny, which I think is hard to come by nowadays. I dont need to go into detail about our first and second courses because if you go the food will speak for itself! The only disappointing about it, is that I am never going to be able to eat carrot cake from anywhere else ever again. Thank you for the awesome dining experience Quatrefoil!

    The special 5-course champagne dinner was absolutely superb from the first appetizer (beef tartar in an amazing tomato chip) to the dessert (wickedly surprising goat cheesecake). Incredibly creative kitchen. This restaurant should be on every food-lover’s list

    Excellent evening with attentive friendly servers! Food was delicious and presented beautifully! One of our guests felt cool later in the evening as we sat on the patio.I mentioned this to Linsey, the hostess, and she had shawls on hand for just that reason! They really think of everything here! Just a lovely evening in general! Thanks
