I did some searching on google maps and found this place only a few blocks from the concert The staff was extremely friendly, great atmosphere and great food, no complaints. They had a great choice for a decent price and we agree it is not located... More

I had no idea the Purple Pear existed until I did a restaurant search for the Hamilton area. I was pleasantly surprised when I found this hidden gem. While it may not be located in the best area, the food and service were excellent. It offers more of a formal dining experience without the hefty price tag. Their steak is... More

The Purple Pear is geared to the older crowd, based on the menu and decor. We had the steak and it was just OK. It was rather thin and so when I asked for rare, it was more medium-well. Overall, it is just ok. I will not drive out of my way to visit this place again.

Just returned from having dinner using a wagjag coupon for two 3 course meals for $39. I would have scored it higher if the neighbourhood was better and the decor more modern. That being said the service was prompt,courteous,and efficient. The appetizers and mains were all of excellent quality and presentation. The two desserts were good but both were too... More

The presentation of the food was very good, the atmosphere was adequate. Very disappointed in the fish, sea bass was recommended by the waiter when the sea bass arrived for two people in the party the fish was tasteless and tough even difficult to cut with a knife, when getting towards the middle of the fish the inside was actually...

They are only open for dinner on Wednesday to Sunday evenings. So trying to arrange to go there was tricky. It is not a big place and fills up quickly so a reservation is a must if you want to get in. parking in the back or meters out front. The food selection is a not huge but something for... More

We came here with a Groupon and were so impressed! The food was delicious, the presentation beautiful, and the service was perfect! We had the steak and salmon. Both were done to perfection, and the desserts are heavenly! The wine list, while not extensive, is reasonably priced, and offers something for everyone. We will return for sure!
