The service was excellent, and the food was delicious. It was not a cheap meal, but I would say that it was good value, nevertheless. I had the grilled veal, and it was very tender, with quite an assortment of vegetables. I thought that the...mashed potatoes was the only weak point on the plate -- quite bland. My wife had the braised lamb shank, and I had a taste of it. It was very flavourful, and the portion was very large, so much so that I had to help her with it. the wine was good -- both red and white, and my wife said that her Caesar salad was the best she ever had. My appetizer was grilled beets -- quite delicious, and I had never eaten yellow beets before. Finally, we shared a Creme Brule. It was good, but I prefer it when served warm. All in all, a terrific experience. We will be back when we have something noteworthy to celebrate.More

The magicians in the kitchen at Chanterelle Bistro are what makes this one of Bowmanville's hidden gems. I have never had a bad meal there. From the mouth watering food to the vastly impressive wine list, you can't go wrong. This is the place you...want to take your significant other for a romantic night out.More

The ambience, wine list, and mostly the food is spectacular. Everything is homemade. Their tomato sauce is right out of Italy. The homemade ice cream and desserts are way too delicious to resist. The staff is knowledgeable and delightful. I wish it wasn’t so far...from my home or it would be a regular.More

Just back from another great dinner at Chanterelle's in downtown Bowmanville! The Muscovy duck is great! Customer service is always outstanding! It's become our preferred restaurant in town. Can't wait to go back!

A lovely night out. We started the night off right with delicious oysters Rockefeller, followed by a tomato burrata salad. My husband had the steak poivre-which is always delicious. Save room for dessert as the creme brûlée is always awesome. Our server seemed quite ‘new’...but made up for what she didn’t know about wine with a pleasant disposition & attentiveness.More

We had an absolutely fantastic evening at Chanterelles. The venison tenderloin was fantastic and we ordered a side of the mushroom risotto which complimented the dish so well. I highly recommend the thyme potato medley as a side. Excellent service, meal and ambiance.

Anniversary dinner again this year. Appetizer pate was excellent. Wine was cold. Mains were both very good (steak, seafood with rice). Dessert was a shared creme brulee that never fails to satisfy. The restaurant was quite busy which is a sign of success. Can't really...have it both ways. Lots of family groups celebrating. The only slight disappointment was a version of Caprese salad (heirloom tomatoes with balsamic vinegar and buratta cheese) served as our second appetizer. The flavours seemed a bit under powered. All in all a good evening out. We will no doubt return.More
