“A culinary gem not to be missed”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Don't get discouraged by the Burnaby address. Not all great restaurants are downtown or in the trendy areas. The Pear Tree is one of the best places for a gourmet meal in the Lower Mainland. They use only the freshest, top quality ingredients, and no matter which dish you choose, they are all equally excellent. We were a group of six and ordered all different dishes, tasting our way around the table. I can't say I have a favorite but my chicken was divine. Totally not what you would expect of 'just chicken'. It was a masterpiece of flavor combinations and presentation. Staff is friendly and professional, the wine list ample and reasonable, and decor intimate. Call well ahead for a table because they fill up quickly.

My family (partner and two teens) took me to The Pear Tree for my birthday. The food was superb and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal.

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Read a few previous reviews and wasn't sure what I would expect on my first visit. The food was really delicious (quite a few items with pear as ingredients and most other items incorporate some fruit) and service was good. We particularly like the chocolate dessert.

Mind you, if you are hungry and are looking for big portions, you will be very disappointed. The food is nicely done but portion is really small.

“Excellent choice for something a little special”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Every year in March we celebrate sibling birthdays. This year we decided to try something new and were not disappointed in The Pear Tree. Our entire party of seven (they do not take reservations for more than 8), loved their meal and we all left feeling like we had a unique and delicious dining experience. Prices were on the pricier side, but there were no complaints at the end of the meal. The dining room is small, and modern. Save room for desert. Vegetarian options are available. I would recommend The Pear Tree, it was delicious and everyone enjoyed it...even the pickier eaters!

“Outstanding restaurant”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

This is a gem, most people don't even know about this place, 5 star restaurant on E. Hastings in a nondescript building. Check it out, you will not be disappointed.
