We visited Quatrefoil today to celebrate my husband's birthday. I had lunched there before, but it was his first visit. Food and service was excellent. We both chose options from the prix fix lunch menu with the addition of a glass of wine. The tempura shrimp were hot and crisp. The braised beef tender. The eggs Benedict with smoked salmon... More

Five stars well deserved. I was impressed with Quatrefoil's amazing food, beautiful plating, and exceptional service! To start, they gave us an assortment of bread as a complimentary appetizer. I liked the ones that looked like a miniature of yorkshire puddings. Their wholewheat bread was pretty good, too. Cornmeal Crusted Calamari was so crispy and tasty. It tasted soooooo yummy... More

Last night, my husband indulged me for my birthday by taking me here for dinner. Quatrefoil's dishes are so well prepared and presented that dining here is truly a gourmet experience. And the quality of their service raises it to delightful! From the amuse bouche to the complimentary sweets and Moscato, I couldn't have asked for a better evening. Our... More

My wife and I attended Quatrefoil in the beginning of April 2017. All of the wait staff are professional, friendly and attentive. We each had an appetizer, one was the salad and one was the cannelloni. Both were excellent. For the main course I had the tenderloin and my wife had the short ribs. Again very tasty. I believe the... More

We started the evening with a complimentary amuse-bouche. A small dumpling to cleanse the palate. Ordered a bottle of Malbec ( one of the best we have ever had. Out today... More

Quatrefoil never disappoints! Between the service and the food, it was all excellent. We did the tasting menu on a Friday night. Perfect for us: lovely portions and variety. They didn't have the wine we chose but the waiter quickly offered a substitute at the same price. Lovely to go to a place where food preparation, presentation and service is... More

Excellent food and service. Generally a great dining experience. Expensive and yet blue for money given the quality of the meal. I would say this is at least the equivalent of a 2 star Michelin for less than 1 star pricing. Simply the best in its class in our region.

I recently visited with a small group. The service was excellent and the food great. There is a great choice of items on the menu. There are also daily specials. The menu items change to some extent on the seasons and what is available locally. However some items like the cumbrae steaks are always there. The choice of wine is... More

Chefs Fraser Macfarlane and Georgina Mitropoulos opened Quatrefoil Restaurant in May, 2010. Since then, the restaurant has been named among the top 10 best new Canadian restaurants of 2010 by enRoute Magazine, and among the top 10 best new restaurants of 2011 in Toronto by Toronto Life magazine. Quatrefoil Restaurant is also featured as a prime dining destination in the 2011 edition of Where to Eat in Canada. Located in the quaint community of Dundas, Ontario, the restaurant offers contemporary French cuisine in a charming heritage home turned modern eatery. Macfarlane and Mitropoulos, a husband-and-wife team, met in the kitchen of Toronto's Scaramouche Restaurant, before heading to Europe to seek out new food styles and experiences. Together, the pair has cooked in some of the best Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe, training under notable chefs such as Marco Pierre White, Gordon Ramsay and Gary Hollihead.
