Absolutely wonderful experience!! Food was incredibly delicious and flavorful. Portions were large but not excessive Service was wonderful, personable, attentive and informative. Warm, cozy and very relaxing atmosphere. I will definitely go back and suggest everyone try this gem out!!!

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... More

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 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

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...
