We visited the Purple Pear for the first time tonight for Christmas Dinner and had a wonderful evening. We had made the reservations a few weeks ago and were looking forward to going after reading the reviews and it lived up to our expectations. I went with my mother and 7 year old son and were presented with a fixed... More

Tried this restaurant with a girlfriend and was able to enjoy a wonderful meal with the fixed menu. We chose the feta and spinach in phyllo and shrimp cocktail as appetizers. Both were good. For mains we split the steak dinner and seafood pasta. Steak was disappointing as it lacked flavour was not very tender and could have used a... More

Very good food. Very polite servers. Everything was just perfect. The manager seemed very hands on. One thing though, the location isn't the greatest.

Had a wonderful Friday night surprise at the "The Pear". Very nice bottle of Niagara house Red! for dinner. Prime Rib was perfectly prepared, cut and presented. Restaurant was very busy with what looked like "regulars" and the service was spot-on!!!! I will definitely return!! Well done

We wanted an intimate setting for my parent's 50th Anniversary dinner surprise. Victor was pleasant to talk to on the phone and was very accommodating to my requests. He offered to open the restaurant early to accommodate the surprise for my parents so all the guests were there waiting when they arrived. WOW!! That's service!! The three tables were nicely...

great staff, great steak, great time. we thoroughly enjoyed our evening here. It's been almost a year and all is good at the Pear. Full house is the only bad news for us. it is more difficult to get in. But I am sure Victor is OK with that

We have eaten here in the past and always had a good meal. We decided to go here after Theatre Aquarius.I had the sirloin and my wife, the sea bass, from the fixed price menu. We were not disappointed. Ditto for the other 3 couples. The owner, Victor, is great. He even opened the restaurant early as our play was... 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
