A word from Quatrefoil
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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We heard this restaurant was very good. The presentation was amazing. The portions were just enough. Lovely atmosphere. Waiter/waitresses very helpful and knowledgeable. I would definitely dine here again. There was only one bad thing my hubby had the oyster appetizer and one oyster was bad. He told me after on the way home. But all in all very impressive. Lived up to all hype regarding this place. Thanks for lovely evening."

  • "My wife and I do not usually eat at fine (a.k.a. expensive) restaurants, in part because we fear that the quality will not justify the expense, but this was a special occasion (her retirement). For people like us, as well as for those who simply like to eat well, I thoroughly recommend Quatrefoil. Excellent food, wine, and service: attentive but not obtrusive. We ate outside. The setting -- close to downtown Dundas -- is very pleasant. We had dinner here, but I can imagine that the shaded patio would be excellent for a lunch, coupled with a local day out."

  • "I really appreciate the selection of half bottles on the excellent wine list."

  • "French inspired cuisine is creative and intricate in flavors. Foie gras torchon was fabulous, with many complementing flavors on the sides. Gnocchi was el dente, very tasty sauce and served with fresh garden peas. Veal loin was done to perfection and all sides were wonderful. The striped bass was an unexpected success and the portion was substantial. Rhubarb panna cotta was a tasty dessert. Pressed coffee was very aromatic. Service was very good, with just the right amount of attention. $30 corkage allows diners to bring that special bottle of wine, we took advantage with our 1996 Bordeaux. Ambiance is somewhat formal, but comfortable."

  • "We had a great experience at this wonderful restaurant. Excellent and courteous service, FANTASTIC food and quite an impressive wine list with varied choices by the glass, half bottles and all styles and prices by the bottle. Everything from the amuse bouche to the petits fours was made with great attention to detail. Kudos to everyone involved in the whole operation of this fantastic restaurant."

  • "On Friday we went to Quatrefoil for my wife's birthday. We were expecting a great dinner as we had been there before and why drive from Georgetown to Dundas if it was not going to be special. They REALLY OUT DID THEMSELVES, and yes the caps were necessary. They are now doing a 5 course tasting menu on the weekend. It sounded really great so we both went for it. I asked the server whether they could do a wine pairing with the meal and he said yes. The amuse bouche was a small deviled quail egg with a crispy parmesan dust. Then we went to a warm white asparagus salad with garlic prosciutto. Then fried salmon, with a crisp skin that you have to eat, it made the dish. Then an ash covered veal medallion. No more room, so JUST COME HERE!"

The service was attentive but not at all intrusive. The atmosphere quiet, serene and elegant. We had a memorable meal and dining experience for our anniversary."

  • "My husband and I joined my Brother and Sister-In law for a nice "catch up" Dinner. We all love a Fine Food experience and enjoy trying different restruants. This was a first time visit for Dinner for all of us. (I was there once for lunch and was impressed then) The Food was second to none! All of us enjoyed our courses and were very impressed with the Flavours, Quality and presentation of the Food. the Service was professional and attentive. the Decor is gorgeous and I would recommend this restruant for any special occasion or romantic dinner for two. It is a little on the pricey side but worth every penny. 5 Stars from this Foodie!!!"

  • "Bon appetit! A restaurant reminiscent of those found in Paris, France. Beautiful restored home in a neighborhood (so very quiet). Maitre D very attentive to us on arrival. Professional waiter. Every dish from appetizer to dessert was so tasty! Commented to my wife that among the hundreds of restaurants we have dined at over the past 10 years, this restaurant ranks in the top 3!!! Bon appetit!!"

  • "Quatrefoil is the most obvious sign that Dundas is in the midst of a renaissance, and has been for some time. Nice to see Cumbrae's, the local butcher credited on the menu. Four perfect meals nestled within a tranquil valley full of trees to dapple the setting sun. The food was made and served by people who love what they do. Who could possibly ask for anything more?"

  • "My wife and I have been to Quatrefoil many times for special occasions. The food and staff never disappoint. Go hungry, you'll want to splurge on a full-course meal. The soup will never disappoint, even if the ingredients don't sound like a personal favorite. The special always simply a work of art. The cheese platter from Mickey's is a must to cap a wonderful evening."

  • "We love everything about Quatrefoil, the food is outstanding always! Service is impeccable, with experienced and very friendly staff always!! As we are gluten intolerant it is beyond wonderful that we can go there and know not only that we are getting top quality food, done to perfection, but that they really don't even use flour in many of their dishes (a sign of a GREAT chef and restaurant in my opinion) and most of their menu items are available to us, and if not they are more than happy to make substitutions!

  • "our romantic birthday dinner met and exceeded all of our expectations. Gnocchi melted in your mouth and the seared tuna was scrumptious. Only upset that we didn't leave enough room for desserts, but shared one."

  • "We went to Quatrefoil for the first time on our anniversary. I had the beef tenderloin and my husband had the salmon and did not regret our choices. The meat was cooked to perfection and the sauces and spices were complex and complimentary. The Shiraz tasted so good on its own and with the beef. The champagne was a romantic finish the celebration."

  • "We have been several times to Quatrefoil and always enjoyed it. This time the weather was such that we were able to enjoy cocktails outdoors on the delightful patio. Our meal was delicious and service good..... although my still half full G and T was not brought to our table from outside when we were told our table was ready. When i asked another was brought but it was too late - we were ready for wine at that point. I did respond when asked if this was a specal occasion and i said it was our anniversary.... however no note was made of this. We will return. It is a pleasant venue and food is a high calibre."

  • "Mr wife and I have been coming to Quatrefoil ever since it opened and the food and dining experience are as awesome and polished today as it was then. Nice to see that the wine list has expanded a bit in the past couple of years, but I would say that the only disappointing thing is that improved wine list has come with a remarkable mark-up on some listings. We've now elected to bring our own wine an pay the (still fair at $30) corkage fee."

  • "It is simple. Quatrefoil is simply one of the best restaurants you will find in Southern Ontario if not in Canada. I am highly mobile and have tried many of the finest, but there is just something about the total package here. The fact that is in Dundas is our luck and we book every chance we get. The quality, presentation, and the portion size (not too much!) offered is perfect to our liking. The staff are well trained friendly, attentive but not too much so, and accommodating to our tastes and needs. Highly recommend this restaurant!"

  • "My husband and I picked this restaurant from reviews online. We live in Rochester but were in Hamilton for a concert. The restaurant and dinner were absolutely amazing! We dine out a lot and have high expectations and Quatrefoil surpassed them. Service was great, good was outstanding, and the ambiance is cool. It's pricey,yes, but well worth it and we will definitely be back!"

  • "I live in CA and I have dined at the best San Francisco has to offer, and I found Quatrefoil every bit as good. The food was adventurous without being pretentious and the service was spot on. The ambiance was the surprise though as we had never been to the restaurant: all in shades of white with white banquettes but with a lovely soft light that made it a beautiful room. Kudos to manager Rueben and waiter Kyle! Will definitely be back my next trip up from CA."
