My husband and I went for an early dinner before a rock concert last night. The service was exceptional and the food was divine! I had the Mushroom Risotto, that I couldn't stop eating, and my husband had the Beef Tenderloin. The Tenderloin was cooked to perfection and the Potatoes Ana was amazing! The Risotto was hot and bursting with... More

My wife and I went here for dinner for the first time based on reviews. I do not know where other people who have reviewed this restaurant have eaten but i would not classify this as 'fine dining'. The service was average, certainly nothing special, and not anywhere near the standard i would classify as fine dining. The restaurant itself... More

If you want a delightful meal - French fusion style - with superb service and lovely ambience, slip off Highway 401 and proceed to downtown Bowmanville. Marita Aguete and Derek Leung, owners of Chanterelle Bistro, are passionate about food and skilled at presenting dishes filled with flavour. Lovely appetizers. Terrific lamb shank. Excellent vegetarian pasta (not on the menu but... More

Been wanting to try this for some time. Food was fantastic. Excellent escargot. Great lamb shank. Very good gnocchi. And service was excellent. Great experience.

While I wouldn't say I had a bad meal I would say I had an expensive average meal. My husband, myself, daughter and son went. Menu looked great and sounded so good I was unsure what to order. Starters included shrimp bisque which was good, Buffalo mozzarella tomato confit salad which looked nice on arrival but was textually challenged as... More

On business and walked in alone. Quaint decor and nice vibe. Service was excellent, and the food was brilliant. Well done Chanterelle Bistro. Cant wait to return with my wife.

We had a 50th wedding anniversary party with 15 people and they let us have the front room reserved. They made one long table down the middle. I brought my 39" flat screen t.v. and my laptop and they accommodated me setting it up to play a few special videos on. The owners advised we could have a set 3... More

My sister had her small wedding reception here over the weekend, and at first, I was skeptical. The outside of the building is not impressive and it is not very exciting looking. However, the food and service completely surprised me and ended up being perfect for the evening and one of the best meals I have had in a long... More

Not being from the area, we had no idea that this place existed. We were the for a wedding reception last weekend and upon arrival, we were not sure what our experience would be as the building is unassuming. But once we were seated the service could not have been better. The staff was extremely attentive, the food was excellent.... More

This is my hubby and my fav spot for an enjoyable date night out. It's close to home but the quality of cuisine is comparable with food we have enjoyed in Las Vegas/Toronto. The crusted lamb is to die for, actually the entire menu, from apps to dessert is impeccable. It's often difficult for us to choose what to have... More
