    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

    Quatrefoil is always outstanding! The service is without fail friendly and professional. Food is always excellent with amazing flavours and beautiful presentation. Our gluten intolerance is always handled without any issue and always with delicious substitutions if necessary. By far our favourite restaurant in the GTA!

    My wife and I had an impromptu dinner at Quatrefoil and as always, we were very satisfied. We both had the halibut special, which was simply outstanding. This, together with the excellent choice of wine and the usual attentive and friendly service, made for another memorable evening.

    We had a confirmed reservation. When we arrived we were turned away and our reservation not honored. Quatrefoil had previously booked an event and were shut-down to others but left their reservations open.

    I had a reservation for dinner for my 25th wedding anniversary. An hour before, the restaurant telephoned me to tell me they would not be able to accommodate me as the restaurant was closed for a private function. They suggested that I could come the following evening. I will never, ever step foot in this restaurant and will bad mouth it to everyone.

    I love the service, the staff is extremely friendly. It is a top notch restaurant yet I don't feel "stuffy". We have two children, while they are not young, they are somewhat restless and we feel at ease. The food is fantastic, though a bit pricy. We love the look of the patio and we will come back!

    Love the four different types of bread we were served first thing after ordering. The sweet potato soup was so smooth and tasty (I wanted to like the bowl..lol). Main course was excellent. We all had the cod and found it light, flaky, delicious! Really enjoyed the tartar sauce, just the right amount of dill...yum. Dessert was very good...we cleaned our plates...that's a good sign! Once again Quatrefoil did not disappoint. It was my aunt's 92nd birthday so they put a single candle on the plate and she was thrilled to make awish and blow it out. Nice touch!! Thank you!

    Very attentive service, friendly and knowledgeable of the menu and wines. Very happy with our evening out to Quatrefoil. We chose the testing menu and we were not disappointed with the high quality of each 5 presentations. Really like how they used seasonally produce for each one and the scallops and beef just melted in your mouth. Would recommended to anyone who are looking to have a special evening out.
