Easily one of the best meals I have had in Canada. This is a must-visit restaurant. We made a day of it out from Toronto and couldn’t have been more impressed. Everything from the space, service and spectacular seasonal produce was executed with simple, natural elegance.

An absolute incredible experience! My husband and I came for our 4 year wedding anniversary and you guys did not disappoint! Even with a dairy allergy, you guys had no problem accommodating. Staff was incredible, knowledgeable and down to earth. The food was amazing, local, fresh and creative. The wine pairing was perfect with each course. My husband and I are both in the hospitality industry so they were nice enough to give us a tour of the kitchen and speak with the chefs. Thank you for a memorable experience, we will be back and recommend to others!

Excellent food, wonderful presentations. The chefs came and met with us. Would be nice if a greater emphasis was put on the local wines of Pearl Morissette which are wonderful and a big reason to go to Pearl Morissette.

The space was lovely. Service exceptional. Martin, our server helped us with everything. The chefs/cooks brought out the artistic presentations and explained every delicious item. Glad the wines chosen for the wine pairings do not necessarily use the wines from their winery as the pairing was food driven. Delighted that there was no tip was needed. Thx also for accommodating our 4 year old too!

Gorgeous space with an abundance of natural light. We opted for the 5 course Lunch (which as per most tasting menus translates to about 9 dishes!) and every bite was executed beautifully. Each plate was both visually stunning and made with delicious, high quality ingredients, making it clear that the Chefs take the same pride and attention to detail in their food as François Morissette does with his award winning wines.
As it was lunch, we opted against the wine pairing and instead relied upon our server to choose individual glasses to compliment the meal (and our tastes) and we were thrilled with his choices.
Our only criticism was that the pace could have been sped up ever so slightly. The overall experience was phenomenal, but at over 3hrs, we found that we glanced at our watches a few too many times.
Still, highly recommended and the best meal we’ve had in the Niagara area by a long shot.

Everything was absolutely perfect! My husband and I went for my Birthday Dinner and were very impressed. The food and wine pairings were amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. You can tell they are passionate in what they do both in terms of food and wine. They even quietly came out with a candle to wish me Happy Birthday which I appreciated. We are looking forward to returning in the near future!

Our recent visit indicated that the PM team is constantly improving. The food was excellent. Overall, a bit expensive for an everyday outing but very reasonable for 'special occasions' given the quality and effort evident in the food preparation/presentation.

This was probably one of the best meals we have had in Canada. My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and could not have picked a better place. We chose the 5 course tasting menu which is always a little bit of a risk but in this case was exceptional. Each course was very well put together in both flavour combination and appearance. On this particular day the journey began with a Seared Scallop and was followed by Grilled Beets with Yoghurt & Lamb Jus, an amuse bouche of an Oyster in Ham Broth, Potato with Arugula, Pickerel with Winter Spinach, Smoked Duck with Black Mushrooms, Kale & Berries, Rhubarb Sorbet and finished with a divine Apple Cake with Sour Cream & Rosehip.
Each course was delicious but the star of the show was the Apple Cake.
The menu changes constantly depending what is in season so we will absolutely return during a different season. We would definitely highly recommend this restaurant as one of the best in Southern Ontario.

An outstanding dining experience in every way and truly not to be missed-fabulous and creative food, equally good wine pairings including many of the winery’s own, attentive and informed service in a beautiful setting. Loved that the co-chef’s presented many of the courses and talked about their inspiration and sourcing for each dish. It was a memorable 70th birthday dinner for my husband and all of us who joined him. Thanks again team Pearl Morrisette!

Probably one of the two best tasting menus we've ever had, beautifully marrying texture and taste. The wine pairings were also excellent and highlighted both local and international brands. Impeccable service as well.

Appetizers although imaginative lacked layers of flavoring. Fish dish, raw halibut with pickled asparagus looked good but also lacked balance/depth of flavors. The oysters course and pork neck were excellent. Service was good. Ambiance is great,. Room is modern, comfortable and inviting. A good start to a very new restaurant but definitely room for improvement. Its obvious the talent is there to evolve the place into a great restaurant.

The hospitality was outstanding and the ambience was lovely. The food was good, but the chefs could focus on developing bolder and more assertive flavours. These flavours would pair better with the wine selections and offer a better dining experience.
