As soon we entered in the restaurant we were greeted warmly by the hostess,we were not pushed by the service,the waitress was perfect!! The food was outstanding from our starters to our main courses.
I would recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.
Thank you for making this evening memorable.

Ate at Pinocchio in early October during a weekend getaway to magog with my wife. Read the positive comments about the restaurant and passed by in the afternoon to see the place and to make a reservation in person.

The decor is very nice. When we went back to eat later that evening we found the noise level a little high. You are better at the left of the restaurant where the noise level is lower.

We had the table d'hote:
The salad was good - fresh with a nice dressing
Escargot & mushrooms was good
Mussels were Ok but not great however expensive
The filet mignon was nice and tender however the sauce had burned after-taste.
The service was attentive.

Note: if you pay with the visa terminal and you choose to pay with % tip it will calculate the tip on the total amount including the tax. On their bill, they calculate the amount for 15% tip before tax. So you are better to enter the amount rather than letting the terminal calculate it for you.

Never the less, overall the meal and service was good so the few bucks extra tip did not bother me too much. From my all the reviews i read, i was a little disappointed with the food or maybe my expectations were too high but the restaurant did meet my expectations in atmosphere and food presentation.

the hotel directed us to Pinocchio, a very stylish restaurant on the main street. After seeing no great alternatives we followed the recommendation. For a tuesday night service was fine, atmosphere good a there was a reasonable crowd. My wife chose the risotto which was good although on the verge of spending too long under he heat lamp. I chose with 100% angus beef burger with frites. The burger presented nicely with vegetables and onion rings was dry and completely flavourless, The frites were that dark brown that comes ahead of the burn which is then followed by the soggy droop. The staff seemingly unsure what to do with the feedback offered a free coffee.

On our recent visit to the beautiful Magog area (from Vancouver) we were fortunate to be introduced to this restaurant by our hosts.
Pinocchio is an amazing high quality restaurant with modern décor and a great outdoor patio. We were overwhelmed by the presentation, freshness and taste of our choice of meals. I highly recommend Pinocchio's for a memorable experience.
Merci to Marlene, our fabulous server, and Alexandra, owner extraordinaire.

Great experience.

Well-made cocktails.

Well-chosen and reasonably priced wines.

Professional bi-lingual service.

Especially enjoyed the boudin noir, salmon tartare and veal liver.

Nice molten choc dessert.

Elegant decor.

Modest pricing, all things considered.

We'll be back
