We arrived 6:25 and left 9:21 almost 3 hours to eat. It took 1 hour to get the first course and 2 hours for the other 4 courses. The restaurant was tastefully decorated, the service staff friendly, the food was good but certainly not outstanding, it took forever to get it and not much of it when it came. I would never order the tasting menu again. The most memorable thing was the bill, $327.00 for two people for a dinner that took 3 hours. Just not worth the money.

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

First time and wished we had come here years ago! Amazing short ribs with these delicious blue cheese puffs that were a delicious combination. Citrus cake was fantastic...very light...similar to a lemon tart in flavour but elevated several levels. Even the bread was delicious...especially those cheese sticks. One of the best restaurants we’ve ever been to....definitely our new favourite!

We were celebrating a 90th birthday. For this reason we wanted the quietest area possible in the restaurant and made that request at the time of reservation. The restaurant emailed back almost immediately. We were given a lovely booth in a secluded area which worked out perfectly. The evening was enjoyed by all. The waiter we had was attentive and friendly but not overbearing. The food was top-notch. Presented and served beautifully. Absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.

I went with a group of friends for the Farmer's Supper. I was very disappointed in the overall experience . The same group had been the previous year for the same dinner and had a very special evening.To start with there were no white tablecloths on the tables, something that is associated with fine dining and the tables had a bleach odor. The service was poor. We waited half an hour before our drink and meal orders were taken.By the time we got our cocktails and dinner we were waiting over an hour. The cocktails and dinner were served all at once. I have never been in a restaurant where cocktails were not served first. It made for a very long wait for dinner. I had the steak that was served in a sauce that was very strong flavored and way too much of it. In general the meal was not what is expected of highly rated restaurant.I am not sure what happened,but there has been a decline in service and quality of food from my previous experience.

This was a family event, and a new experience for two members. The food was excellent, and the service very good, with added touches based on staff picking up on our conversation. It was a lovely evening, and of course we would return. There are times when a high end restaurant is worth every penny, and this was one of them.

Quatrefoil was a wonderful way to wind down the week. The coziness of the upstairs dining area was so pleasant and relaxing. We chose the tasting menu and it was amazing. Each dish was timed so well; the portions were a perfect size and the balance of flavors of each intricate dish were a joy to the taste buds.Although the restaurant was full we felt very pampered. A huge thank You to the chef and staff. Highly recommended for a special evening.

This was our first visit to Quatrefoil. We came to celebrate a birthday and to explore Dundas, in general, for a getaway weekend. We have eaten at some truly exquisite restaurants but this was unique. The food was so intricate but delicate and unpretentious. Each ingredient was treated with such respect and introduced to one another in the way a gracious hostess would introduce guests. The atmosphere is warm and intimate; it felt like we had walked into the coziest dining room in someone's home. And our server, Kyle, made us feel incredibly welcome, relaxed, and yet entertained. In a way, the whole thing felt like a dream the next morning. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

After visiting Quatrefoil on Feb.16 for a Valentine's dinner I was incredibly satisfied in all aspects of a typical dining experience. Upon walking up to the restaurant, it had amazing character from the outside with a beautiful 'homey' vibe coming from the heritage home. As soon as I walked in I immediately noticed the stunning decor and quaint ambience. My server - Victor, was extremely attentive and friendly to my significant other and myself. His prompt service showed that he cared. He consistently made sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend him as a server, he was fantastic! The food was exceptional with so many fine touches in every dish. Perfectly cooked with all the right flavours. There is no need to say more about the food, you have to try it for yourself to believe it! The wait time for the food was very impressive, it does help that Quatrefoil gives you some nibbles to eat while waiting for your food. My evening at Quatrefoil was absolutely delightful and I recommend it to anyone looking for a true fine dining experience. It all starts with the food!
