First off. When I was given the wine menu I thought I would be sensible and order a reasonably priced bottle of wine. I showed the waitress which bottle I wanted. We waited over 30 minutes to get our bottle of wine. The food portions are incredibly small. Some of the food had a funky taste that we could not stomach. When we got our bill we found out the price of the meal. It was outrageous and to top things off, the bottle of wine that showed on the bill was different from the bottle of wine that I had ordered. When I asked the waitress about the price of the wine and how it was different than the one that I had ordered she said that wasn’t the price of the bottle that she gave me and the conversation was over. I was stuck paying for a much more expensive bottle that I didn’t order. My wife and I expected so much more for spending 3 hours away from our kids and spending over $330 on a meal. The experience and the time were not worth it. We wish we would have been informed about the time, size of portions and price before we had gone and we would have been able to make the decision not to dine at this restaurant. To top it all off, we needed to eat when we got home because we left very hungry.

There were 9 courses of the surprise menu. Flavours of dishes were very good however, the portion sizes were very small. My party was still hungry upon leaving the restaurant. I did not feel the meal cost of $88 was worth the money. The wine list was very expensive for VQA wines. A 3 oz glass was $10. Overall the dining experience was unique but I will not return.

An outstanding fine dining experience from start to finish. Definitely one of the best meals we've yet to have. Our server Morgan was exceptional and immediately made us feel welcome. The only problem with The Restaurant at Pearl Morisette is that at the end of each and every course, you'll say that was the best yet. Appreciate that the dining area is not jammed with tables - the owners could easily double the size. Well worth the drive for anyone in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Great value for money.

A bit hard to find. Look for the cardinal statue. No name at the entrance to the farm. Great for an eclectic experience. Food was excellent but may not be for everyone. Although they told us each dish and their ingredients l am not sure what I was eating. Very unique experience. Excellent service. Trendy seating. Not recommended to wear your Stilettos -gravel parking lot.

We finally visited Pearl Morissette this past weekend, and it was worth the drive. The venue itself is gorgeous - cozy yet modern. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. We love that the chef's help to serve and describe the courses themselves - you could certainly feel their passion for the food and the local ingredients. It's a great destination date - we went to a winery and a brewery close-by ahead of time for some tastings. Overall, I highly recommend to try it, at least once!

This was my second time at Pearl Morissette and it was just as amazing as my first visit two months ago. The food is creative, inventive, organic or as close to it as possible. The chefs are able to cater to any lifestyle or health restricted diet. The environment is simply stunning. All the severs are extremely well informed and describe what went into your food courses in great detail and how they were prepared.
Wine pairings were excellent and even wines that i would not normally drink come alive with the food. This is an experience for special occasions or just to pamper yourself. Staff are friendly, and take the time to answer your questions. It's a top notch experience. I understand why they were voted Canada's best new restaurant.

The progression of the dishes was perfect. Each dish was materfully conceived and executed. Where most restaurants have a flaw or weakness, be it a dish out of place or the sweet course falling flat, the chef’s orchastrated a magnificent symphony of seamless courses. The choice of ingredients and imaginative techniques to hit all the right taste notes was perfect. The knowledgeable and extremely friendly staff made the whole experience exceptional. Congratulations on presenting one of the best meal experiences that we have had in many a year. We will definitely be returning. Thank you.
