It's so hard to choose a dish off the menu... everything is made fresh to order and they cater to every dietary need. The waitresses know EVERYTHING about the food/beverages and pretty much everything is locally produced. The food is amazing. The atmosphere is comfortable, yet a "nice" evening out. A perfect place for a date night or a night... More

We drove 45 minutes to meet friends for dinner as the menu sounded spectacular only to be disappointed. Food was very pricey, the presentation from the appetizers to the dessert was lacking. A slab of goat cheese on top of pastry does not make a tart. Observation on large group reservations perhaps keep in one area as we couldn't hear... More

This bistro has an exceptional wine menu and very good, but not 5/5, bistro food. The dinner menu has a good selection, and the steak special was excellent and perfectly cooked. The scalloped potatoes were only average and a bit dry and underflavoured. The duck was a bit tough and undercooked compared to my order. The dessert selection could use... More

excellent service (thank you Nadeen) Our appetizers were tasty and hot, entrees were superb. It seems to be increasingly difficult to find fine dining in our overly fast paced world and to find this little gem in Bomanville of all places was a pleasant surprise. We'll be back!

Excellent food, excellent service, excellent ambiance. We had a lovely anniversary dinner at Chanterelle's. The food was excellent - both our plates. What I particularly enjoyed was our server who was accommodating, friendly, sweet, and although very correct not even a hint of pretentiousness. There were just 3 couples there when we arrived & they seated us each in a... More

Had the honour of being taken here for a romantic birthday dinner. Could not of asked for a more wonderful night. Was given the private area by the window and treated like royalty. Food was fantastic. Dessert was even better. Wonderful service and meal.

We took a couple to dinner for a birthday celebration. All 4 of us loved our meals. Place was decorated for Christmas and was very pretty. No complaints. We liked it so much, we booked for 3 weeks later to have our annual Christmas get-together with friends. Everyone enjoyed their meals again. One small issue was that after coffee and... More

This is not French cuisine! The mashed potatoes were like a hockey puck. The one carrot was overcooked and burned. The asparagus and beans were raw and cold and the salmon had a sauce that overpowered the flavour of the fish. We didn't receive our wine until we were halfway through our meal.....this is a NO NO in a true... More

Love this restaurant so much, that we're going with friends, two weeks in a row. I am vegan and I got the most amazing meal. Mushroom risotto with veggies and a very good salad. They also had on hand, coconut ice cream! They start you all off with bread and hummus. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the service was very... More
