We lunched here with friends and were very pleased with the food and the great service. The menu is quite varied and offers a nice range of selection. The Angus steak was perfect and the salmon was perfectly prepared as was the special of the day which was a stuffed ravioli. The salads were fresh and nicely dressed and the... More

Before visiting this restaurant for dinner on a Friday I did my research online. I heard this place is a gem compared to the Keg or other restaurants around but out meal was lack luster in my opinion. I often dine out and this meal did not meat my expectations for how "hyped up" it was. I ordered the seafood... More

French Fusion cuisine, "white glove" service and a lovely atmosphere. Chanterelle offers 'Prix Fixe' menus on special holidays such as New Year's Eve & Valentine's Day.

I often drive to Toronto for meals like they have here. I highly recommend the Cornish Hen and the Venison Tenderloin. The creme brule was also amazing! I've had it twice. Great atmosphere for all types of occasions and just a great place for dinner with friends! It can be busy, I usually call a couple hours before for reservations.... More

I have been to this restaurant twice. both times were enjoyable experiences. The food was tasty, hot and the presentation was incredible obviously coming from an experienced chef. I was sad to hear that the new location was damaged by fire. I would certainly go back there for a special occasion.

Bowmanville being a relatively small town, Chanterelle's is the most elegant place to eat a meal. Their food is scrumptious! I have tried countless things on the menu and they have always exceeded my expectations. It is a relatively small establishment run by a sincere husband and wife. They also have an excellent catering service, and we have used it... More

This is a great place for both lunch and dinner. Food is always well prepared. I especially enjoy the Sea Bass and the Venison with the dinner menu. Their soups are superb. The shrimp bisque and the mushroom soup along with the seafood chowder are among my favourites. The choices available at lunch is limited, but they are always delicious.... More

My boyfriend and I had dinner here on March 23rd, everything was absolutely delicious! For appetizers we had the goat cheese tart and heirloom tomato salad both fresh and delicious. For our main courses we had a bottle of Chianti, the beef tenderloin and Chilean sea bass, amazing! And we split the flourless chocolate cake for dessert which was the... More

You will not be disappointed with this Restaurant 45 minutes from downtown Toronto. The food is exceptionally prepared, very tasty, well displayed and hot and the owners and their staff are very accommodating and friendly and they will not rush you. The prices are 20% to 40% less than what you would pay for the same dishes in Toronto. Parking... More
