Intimate restaurant, delicious food, and excellent service. All their food is sourced locally whenever possible. I love that the scallops are from Digby Island, Nova Scotia (and not Asia). Reservations must be made in advance because they fill up fast! We had a larger group so we were fortunate to try most everything on the menu. I was particularly impressed... More

Probably the best fine dining restaurant in Burnaby. Celebrated my wife'd birthday along with family members who are regular customers. Fantastic food and service, we were impressed. Highly recommended.

Very small dining room so be aware of your discussions lol. To start I had the scallops with bacon risotto, incredible flavor perfectly cooked and presented. My date had the Witloof salad, candied walnuts and aged gouda shavings, she enjoyed it immensely. For main course we had the steelhead, cooked rare and with love, very nice. I had the tenderloin...

This is a first class restaurant. It's in Burnaby and it feels like you are dining in downtown Vancouver. The food is beautifully presented and delicious! The décor and staff are outstanding as well! Used to go there a lot a long time ago. Don't know why I waited so long to revisit! This will definitely be on my list... More

I went here with my boyfriend, we made the reservation online, but we had lucky, they called us and got the table earlier than our reservation hour. The service was excellent as the place, everything nice and minimalist decorated. The dish that I loved was "Lobster Cappuccino". The prices are high, but it worth it.

This place is a misfit among its neighbors...The Pear Tree is refined, elegant, substantial, delicious. To start, the service was nearly impeccable with a few main aids helping with dishes, new cutlery, hydration,etc. all friendly and professional with a touch of humor (a plus). THE FOOD was very tasty and detail-oriented. The lamb shank stew was mild and savory, but... More

We all (that's seven of us including two little girls) think this is one of the most under-rated restaurants in Metro Vancouver. Time after time, we come here for special occasions as a family and it never disappoints. The table d'hotes menu was clever: the six Kyushu oysters lightly cooked with scrumptious bits of leek, the stewed bison cheek with... More

Food was excellent! Pleasantly surprised and cost wasn't too bad either. Have always heard great things about this restaurant. If you're looking for some fine dining in the Heights, this is the place to be.

This is my first visit to this restaurant and I will definitely return.The food is exceptional; the appetizers, entrees and dessert were all expertly and creatively prepared. Our server was attentive and personable, adding a really pleasant element to our dining experience. The entire meal was delicious and I would come back for any ONE of the courses!

If you want top quality food, service and atmosphere. This is the spot. I have eaten here a number of times and have always left satisfied and astonished at the quality of food and service. This is an uptown fine dining restaurant hidden in North Burnaby. Very highly recommended!
