The entire experience was amazing from start to finish. What starts as an unassuming building at a winery with no sign turns into an unforgettable treat for your pallet! The food and wine pairings are the star of this off the beaten path gem!!

A hidden gem in Niagara wine country. Hesitant about revealing this treasure to others so as to keep this oasis in farm country our little secret. We loved the entire dining experience and look forward to our return visit.

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.

A bucket-list menu...beautifully presented, carefully created and so delicious. The chefs did a beautiful job for my vegetarian request, and my husband's meal (with meat) was fantastic. Be sure to go with the wine pairings, absolutely perfect!!!

No sir, please put away that 50 dollar bill!!!
Yes, it’s a 5 star winery tasting menu, and not cheap...where staff are on salary with full benefits. They don’t accept tips!!
So maybe NOT SO EXPENSIVE!
Very creative, excellent food.
The lack of signage, replaced by the red cardinal statue makes it feel like a secret speak easy...
Truly romantic and charming.

A phenomenal meal filled with delicious seasonal produce, and every plate came with a story of their producer. A wonderful showcase of what Canada has to offer. Wine parings were on point, and recommendations from staff for our table were exactly what we were looking for. One of the best meals we’ve had in a long time.

I learned about this restaurant from a co worker. Otherwise I never would have came across it. It was absolutely amazing. We enjoyed a delicious 10 course meal, three of which were dessert! It wasn't just a dinner but a total experience. I enjoyed how the chefs brought out each dish and explained how it was made. It's a great place to sit and chat and have some wine and slowly eat lots of gorgeous food.

Overall I would have to say I am disappointed. After having waited for 6 weeks for the reservation I had high expectation. I have been to a number of restaurants with tasting menus now and this was my least favourite. Odd flavour combinations and of the 9 courses I really only really enjoyed 2 of them, and 2 were ok. The value is what is to be expected for a tasting menu, with expensive wine pairings, which I did not get, overall I would recommend other niagara tasting menus over this one and I likely won’t be coming back here. The service and atmosphere were great, just too bad about the flavours.

I have never been to a restaurant like Pearl Morissette. It was my first blind tasting menu experience and I was incredibly impressed. Each course was presented and described in detail by one of the chefs. The wine pairing option is excellent and full of very interesting wines that you will likely not be able to find elsewhere. Pearl Morissette is well worth a visit.

If not all locallly sources/grown, majority of dishes were! Brought newborn baby and staff happily seated us in the corner with sufficient space. Food tasted fresh and was thoroughly thought thru. Note it’s a blind tasting menu so be prepared. Also traffic is typically horrible during the weekend so buffer an extra 30 mins of drive on a Saturday . Will def give another try in the winter.

My partner and I had such an amazing time visiting the restaurant at Pearl Morissette. We arrived 30 minutes before our reservation and enjoyed a glass of wine at the bar (a lovely sparkling honey wine and a PM riesling). We were seated at a window seat of our choosing, on either side of the restaurant. We chose to look over the pond, which gave us views of some farm animals and a beautiful evening sky.

Our evening unfolded perfectly from there. We chose to go with wine pairings with our tasting menu.. one PM wine with 4 international wines that went SO well with the beautiful food. The staff (ALL staff) were attentive, friendly and super knowledgeable, inviting questions and having great answers (in a very unpretentious manner might I add).. Amazing teamwork is present in this restaurant. Chefs and cooks will run the food out, and everyone was sure to give wonderful descriptions of what we were about to enjoy along with our wine pairing.
I can't say enough how much we enjoyed the food. It was so unique, beautifully prepared and the flavours were outstanding. I kept saying to my partner that I never wanted the evening to end. We ended up buying a bottle of PM Napa Valley Cab Sauv and enjoyed a glass at the end of our meal on the couch in their lovely little lounge area before corking the bottle and taking the rest home with us.
When the bill arrived, we noticed a humble little blurb in the corner informing us that they do not accept gratuity. As a hospitality professional myself, it felt strange to pay without leaving a tip, but we were ensured that this is a conscious decision made to elicit a group effort to make every guest experience exceptional...
If this is the secret to this level of service and quality of product, then I say we all to do with gratuities everywhere and take after this exceptional example that the team at Pearl Morissette put forth. Thank you for a wonderful evening that went far beyond both of our expectations.

Wow!! That's really all I can say. My wife and I went for a date night here and it was simply superb! The blind menu was great. We requested no fish or seafood and they gladly obliged. The timing of each course was perfect, the food creativity was through the roof and the service was top notch! I really wish we could've tipped because they deserved a large one. The building itself is one of a kind, you'd never know a place like this was there or could even exist. We loved our experience here and highly recommend you come and experience it for yourself. Thank you to everyone who showed us a great evening there!
