Description: Chefs Fraser Macfarlane and Georgina Mitropoulos opened Quatrefoil...
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.

A top class dining experience in a beautiful valley town.

Everything was perfection. Visited Quatrefoil at lunchtime since our budget was limited at the time. Very reasonable. Soup, salad and quiche were gourmet and served with flair!

Went for a birthday dinner here with my wife. It was our first visit. The restaurant is very nicely decorated, the staff warm & welcoming. The menu is exactly what I'd hoped for - half dozen appetizers & mains plus a nightly special. This ensures enough choice for most folks, plus means the kitchen can focus on hand crafting a... More

I brought my 7 year old son on a gift card, all the staff gushed over him coming in a suit (well it is a fancy restaurant). We very much enjoyed our food and would definitely go back again soon. It is a higher priced restaurant.

What's to be said that hasn't already about this place? Have been here on two separate occasions, and both times were equally delicious. This place knows how to elevate your senses with their masterpieces they call food. Yes, the portions are small, as one should expect from a fine dining restaurant, but, I was extremely satisfied with my full meal.... More

First off if you are searching for great food at a cheap price.... look elsewhere. It is pricey but the service, ambiance, quality of food and overall experience is worth the price. I took friends here for dinner as they were moving back to their homeland. We selected our food choices from the on-line menu, called the restaurant to ensure... More

We recently dined at Quatrefoil to celebrate our anniversary. I booked online using open table, and had a few requests (quiet table, wheat sensitivity). Upon arrival, we were seated upstairs in a quieter area of the restaurant. When the waiter arrived, he mentioned my dietary requests, and they were honoured (gluten free bread from a local bakery was provided for... More

I've been to this restaurant several times for business lunches but I wouldn't hesitate to go for dinner with my husband and/or friends. The menus are always original and the food is truly beautiful.

We have gone to Quatrefoil consistently since it opened and it never fails to please. Food is delicious, well presented and served. Wine suggestions are always good. Nice cocktails and beer on tap. We go here for a special dinner a few times a year.
