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

Four of us went for lunch to celebrate a special birthday. We dined on a Wednesday early afternoon and upon arriving were greeted promptly and ushered to our table. Service was top notch and food delectable. We started with a beautiful glass of 13th Street Cuvee Rose Brut, which was a fitting glass to toast our birthday girl. Our server... More

Quatrefoil continues to deliver consistent French inspired cuisine. More regular changes to the menu would be appreciated . Started with a wonderful sweet sweet potato soup with feta cheese and pumpkin seeds, the combination of the flavours worked together quite well. The flank steak was tasty but a tad over cooked but great frites saved the day!!! The duck leg... More

The interior of the restaurant is designed elegantly with white table settings and lots of natural light. We all decided on the four course special lunch menu. The food quality is outstanding. The server perfect.... More

Having heard so much about this restaurant I had really high expectations heading in. And they were all exceeded. The restaurant is beautiful, the service is friendly yet not overbearing and the food was amazing. Some highlights were the scallops, gnocchi and tartar starters. While both of the beef dishes we ordered as mains were perfect. A great selection of... More

I can understand why this restaurant is so highly rated in Ontario. The presentation and service was very good. The Price Fix menu seems to be very popular. I can assure you that you will... More

Outstanding place for dinner, great service and beautiful inside and out. Came over from Australia and this was by far one of my favourite places to dine. Huge selection of wine, menu is suitable for all desires and tastes as good as it looks.

Thank Brookeadams

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.
