Very disapointed, large cost and main course (tenderloin) was poorly cooked and chewy. Over rated quality of food. Cost for two - $400.00. Should have gone for chicken wings

Quatrefoil consistently provides a high quality food experience: fresh locally source ingredients, well presented, impeccable service, and the ambiance you'd expect in a first class restaurant. I have been here a few times, usually for special occasions, and they have never failed to deliver the experience I've come to expect. This is my first choice for local fine dining.

My husband and I have dined here on at least three occasions, either for birthdays or anniversaries, and we have always had a superb meal. The service is excellent, the food delicious and well presented and the staff friendly and helpful.

We've been here a few times and thought it was time to return. It didn't start well and dint end well. The hostess seemed overwhelmed with getting coats for a party leaving and us coming - we were waiting for 10 min - way too long at this type of restaurant. We were then taken to a table upstairs -...

We enjoyed the tasting menu with wine pairing on Valentine's Day this year. It was one of our top 3 meals EVER. The pairings blew us away and we still talk abut the courses to this day. A bit pricey compared to other restaurants that offer the same type of meal but SO delicious!

One chose soup, meatloaf and cheesecake . We were both very very satisfied with all our choices. Lovely presentation and fantastic tastes. The welcoming hostess and our waitress... More

Chefs Fraser Macfarlane and Georgina Mitropoulos opened Quatrefoil Restaurant in May, 2010. Since then, the restaurant has been named among the top 10 best new Canadian restaurants of 2010 by enRoute Magazine, and among the top 10 best new restaurants of 2011 in Toronto by Toronto Life magazine. Quatrefoil Restaurant is also featured as a prime dining destination in the 2011 edition of Where to Eat in Canada. Located in the quaint community of Dundas, Ontario, the restaurant offers contemporary French cuisine in a charming heritage home turned modern eatery. Macfarlane and Mitropoulos, a husband-and-wife team, met in the kitchen of Toronto's Scaramouche Restaurant, before heading to Europe to seek out new food styles and experiences. Together, the pair has cooked in some of the best Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe, training under notable chefs such as Marco Pierre White, Gordon Ramsay and Gary Hollihead.
