We moved back to Ontario a few months ago from Vancouver, and were worried about leaving that superb food city. Quatrefoil has banished all of those worries. It is as good or better than the best of the West Coast. The innovative combinations of ingredients and flavours reminds us of Hawksworth, but Quatrefoil is often better. The Friday night tasting...

I have dined their a few times now, and have enjoyed each and every time. Each time there has been a different menu. Some exotic ingredients, but always something yummy! The wait staff are very knowledgeable and attentive. It's a higher price point, but they deliver.

Staff was very attentive and we had a lovely patio seating. The amuse bouche was so wonderful, I could have eaten 10 of those and forgot about dinner, but that would have been a mistake to miss out on more perfection. The price was worth the meal

My friend invited me for dinner in Dundas . The food was just fantastic. I have been to many restaurants, but only twice I have experienced incredibly tasty food, Dundas and Tobago. This cooks are just simply artists in their profession. BRAVO !

The meal was great. Limited menu but I am sure there is ample to satisfy most. Service was great. Your order would be taken by a waiter and your order would be deliver by somebody else and the orders were never delivered to the wrong person. This was our first time being at the Quatrefoil.

I went to the restaurant for the first time to celebrate my 60th birthday!, we had such a wonderful experience that night. The waiter was wonderful, the chef sent out little bites of different food for us to try while we waited for the next course, just an amazing evening. We have returned many more times for both lunch and... More
