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!

The Purple Pear is the best place to eat in Hamilton. My husband and I have been going there for years. The owner is so nice and very good at his job. The food is excellent and the prices are comparable to a good steak house. We have never been disappointed with any meal there. They make you feel special... More

We visited Purple Pear on Thursday and enjoyed their pre-fixed meal. Excellent choices, scrumptious flavours and impeccable service. Purple Pear is our go-to place for an enjoyable relaxing meal and where you feel like royalty.

The food and atmosphere are awesome. Not much on the outside but great inside. Victor the owner will greet and seat you. Very relaxing and friendly place.

We dined at the Purple Pear for Valentine's Day, and overall the experience was fairly good. The service was nice, with ample attention from a variety of people, including our server, who mentioned that he was new. Yes, the décor is dated and could be seen as cheesy to some, but it seems to fit well with the clientele, whose... More

My wife and I attended the Purple Pear for Valentine's Day. It was our second visit to this restaurant and we were very pleased as always. The Purple Pear, located deep in Hamilton, although it is an area less traveled by some who live in other parts of Hamilton, is clearly worth the drive. We were greeted by the owner,... More

We called Saturday morning for a reservation for 14 for my dad's 80th birthday. Smart alec guy on at the restaurant asked if I just found out today it was his 80th.
