Occasionally one course during a fine dining experience is unusual and invites comment (Ooo, that's pretty!). At Black Tree, every dish is a conversation stopper. The lengthy descriptions by the waiter are an experience on their own, but when the dishes are presented, you will be hard pressed not to stop talking and just marvel at what Chef Matteo has...

Have heard about this place for the last couple years - finally checked it out for our 10th Anniversary! This is the way Fine Dining is SUPPOSED TO BE! EVERYTHING was PERFECT! Service, Music, Menu, Wine, Quality, Timing, and friendly, relaxed Staff with a meet the Chef in the Kitchen afterwards! Cannot go wrong. Don't let the location fool you.

Absolutely one of the finest restaurants in Canada. Matteo is a genius in the kitchen. The menu which changes regularly is one of the most inventive, diverse and unusual you will find. The food is exceptional with tasting experiences you will never have found. Always one of the finest dining experiences I know. Very small reservations are a must.

I went here with my family, about 10 total. The chef worked with us to design a 5 course menu and it was amazing, It was about a year ago and i still think about the gnocchi. I do not understand the terrible reviews. The food is small and its not cheap, if you want big portions of familiar food... More

The Blacktree always serves high quality imaginative food at the best of times. The new tasting menu has the same amazing food in smaller courses. A great way to try the best food in Burlington for bargain price. Try it you won't regret it.

Had dinner last night at Blacktree and unquestionably it remains the best fine dining restaurant in Burlington. Food was imaginative and beautifully plated; taste was absolutely exquisite! Loved the little extras: the delightful Amuse Bouche, and the rhubarb Palate Cleanser, as well as the delicious bread and apple butter. Wait staff is excellent: friendly and knowledgable about food and what... More

My husband and I go to Blacktree for every special occasion we can think of. The food is simply outstanding, and just when I'm sure it couldn't possibly get any better, the next visit proves me wrong. Chef Matteo is a technical and artistic genius; I'm a picky eater, but I'd eat just about anything he prepares. And I appreciate... More

Suffice to say the food and the service were unpalatable. This was our second visit to this restaurant and we will not return.

This place is off the charts on artistic value, and short on taste and portion size. With a menu that includes endless never-heard-of-combinations like left handed Russian deer with Jupiter grown mushrooms Yadi Yadi... Listening to the menu is the better part of the evening. The food itself is fresh and imaginative, but short on taste. I even wanted to... More

Outstanding food served in a kitschy small dining room. Mateo is a master. He combines the craft of fine french preparation with a touch of molecular gastronomy. His carpaccio of game meats is always superb, his sweet breads the best I have ever had and his fish and sea food mains, sublime. The service is very professional and the wine... More
