    The smoked salmon benny was delicious and of high quality. The smoked salmon was a nice thickness and I loved the hollandaise sauce! The salad was light and the roasted potatoes were great. My husband liked his benny too (with peameal bacon). The perfect brunch meal that filled us up until dinner time. I appreciated the reservation system and the friendly staff. The restaurant had gluten free bread available.

    This is the place to get perfect eggs Benedict and the variations of the bennies are wonderful. The French Canadian Creton appetizer was amazing.

    My friend has a hearing problem and the music was too loud but when she asked our server to lower it she did so and it made all the difference. Very tastey and visually pleasing food..

    Food was great - always delicious with quality ingredients. Service was disappointing as we had to request things multiple times (e.g. water, coffee refills, ketchup) and there was just a general lack of attention.

    Our first time for brunch though we have enjoyed several dinners. The food is delicious, our poached eggs cooked to perfection. Our only criticism is the coffee - with food this good, an espresso machine is a must.

    The best hidden gem ever! The food is absolutely amazing! Head chef Jason is definitely far ahead of the curve. His uses of flavors and design are just top notch. Add the fact that they make you feel like family upon entry, this is hands down the best restaurant around!

    We found the food and service to be very good. The only "complaint" was I found the noise quite high; probably due to a lack of soft surfaces to absorb/dampen sound. I would certainly eat here again

    If you like Eggs Benedict, then this is the place to go. Whether you like smoked salmon, bacon, sausage, etc. Menu changes so you never know what might be offered. Friendly staff.

    We enjoyed our dinner at your establishment very much. The food was delicious and the server was great. We will definitely be back. One small thing that you might want to address. As we were entering, the first thing I noticed was the front door was very dirty. Not a great first impression. All it would take would be a little Windex to make a difference.

    The Yellow Pear has a reputation for being a hidden gem, and it really is! My wife and I had the salmon with a side of potatoes and creme brulee. Perfection! We've decided to return again and again until we've tried every item on the menu, it's that good! Highy recommend The Yellow Pear.

    Wonderful to have Nicole and The Yellow Pear back for brunch. Lovely new items on the menu too. The shakshuka was mouth watering. I woke up wanting it again the next morning and haven’t stopped talking about it. Also the best dining room playlist on rotation
