Tasting menu had unexpected twists that made it worth coming because you won’t be eating the “same old same old” that’s available at common restaurants.

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!

My favorite place in Ontario. If I ate at this restaurant in any major food city I’d be thrilled by the experience. It being in Jordan is that much more special. Above and beyond anything else in the area.

Can't wait to come back already. A short jaunt from Toronto proper, this was worth the drive. I can't believe something this well put together is offered at the price point that it's at. An adventure, in every sense of the word.

We had the most beautiful dinner at Pearl Morissette that filled us with flavours, textures and simply surprises as to what could possibly come next. The chefs were gracious, informative and seamless and the servers complimented every portion of our meal, time in between dishes and overall evening experience.
Thank you kindly.

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.

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.

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.
