This is our third year having a three course meal at Chanterelles on Valentine's Day. Always a treat for us! The kitchen is aware of my husband's garlic allergy and will substitute if needed. Lots of options to choose from - lobster avocado salad, beef tenderloin and lobster tail and a dessert tray to share is what we enjoyed this... More

I had put off going to this restaurant because I figured it would be too expensive but after visiting several other nearby restaurants, I figured we ought to give it a try. Hubby ordered beer and I had a glass of zinfandel. We started with a rocket salad for me and my husband had escargot. Fantastic! Waiting for the entrees... More

I write from the perspective of a diner with Celiac who requires a strict gluten free menu. This little gem is exceptional on any level, but it's how an establishment handles a guest with special need that's the real test. Spoiler alert, this is my new favourite spot for a special night out. It’s privately owned, situated in Bowmanville, Ontario.... More

I took a friend for a belated birthday here last night. What a lovely surprise. The service was excellent. The wine list is very impressive! The food was done to perfection and served piping hot! My friend had the beef tenderloin with scalloped potatoes and seasonal veg and I have the surf and turf. So delicious! And of course we... More

My wife and I made reservations here for a nice quiet dinner to end the old and bring in the new. We like the place having dined here on 3 or 4 occasions in the past. This time we were seated upstairs which was a new experience for us. We had a cozy little table with a window view over... More

I wanted to send my 87 year old Dad, who lives in Bowmanville about 6 blocks away, to this restaurant, since it had such a great review online. I live in Ottawa, so I called the Manager on Dec. 20, to buy a Gift Certificate. I didn't know how to get the gift to my Dad, but the Manager offered... More

There is nothing bad I could say about this place. There is a cozy atmosphere, we had amazing service and the food was incredible! We started off with their delicious crab cakes, then we all thoroughly enjoyed our entrees (Duck Confit, Striploin Steak, Risotto, and my favourite the Chilean Sea Bass). My mouth is watering just think about those dishes.... More
