Booked reservation months in advance (even called to confirm reservation 3 days ahead) but when we arrived for our dinner (to celebrate a very special occasion), I was told in a very unprofessional way in front of my guests that they were only accepting dining patrons who were staying at their hotel (we were staying at a nearby B&B). They did eventually seat us but didn't communicate our situation to our waiter so when it was time to settle the bill, it was a huge mess and took a long time to sort out (charging "special hotel guest prices" vs. actual price and restaurant staff not sure how to handle it ... right in front of us). The food was very very good but the other chaos took away from the wonderful experience it should have been!
Food was average, didn’t know that menu was with such a limited choice if you come as a part of the package with the stay in the hotel. Not everyone likes cheesecake, should be a choice of at least three desserts. Very poor value.
This was our first time to the Cannery Restaurant. We had a 2 hour time slot and the meal was spaced out perfectly to allot for this time available. Appreciated the time between courses in order to savor what we had just eaten as well as relax and enjoy what was about to come next. I had the stuffed chicken and my husband had the salmon. Extremely tasty. The cheesecake desert was the best we had ever tasted. Hope to visit again in the not too distant future. Bon Appetit !!!
This hsd always been my favourite restaurant in Niagara on the Lake and has never disappointed. Another great dinner.
Weekend getaway with family.
Fabulous waiter and food !
The food was amazing!!!
Lovely experience at this restaurant with a phenomenal ambiance. The service was a bit sub par, but that didn’t dampen the evening overall. Definitely recommend and would visit again!
We had a male waiter. Unfortunately I don’t know his name
But he was awesome! Very attentive, excellent customer service! We love Vintage Hotels!! Cannot wait to return!
We drive to NOTL several times a year just to have breakfast in the Cannery Restaurant at Pillar and Post. We throughly enjoy the food and ambiance. We enjoying catching up and chatting with our favourite waiters, Frank & Silvana. For us there is no place in Toronto as warm and inviting, we look forward to our next visit very soon!
How incredibly disappointing! I booked a lunch reservation to eat in the Cannery and was told the restaurant did not open for lunch and was sent to eat in the lounge! This was supposed to be a special birthday lunch for myself and my girlfriend, which I mentioned in the booking. The menu we were offered was no where near comparable to that of the Cannery. I found this to be incredibly misleading. I would never have booked a special birthday lunch in a dark and dismal lounge in the basement with so many wonderful and bright alternatives in Niagara on the lake.
It is a very good restaurant doing everything possible in the current circumstances to serve the clients and to feed them fine food, particularly at Christmas.
Excellent service and ambiance. Server name Alison was very welcoming and helpful. Food was appetizing and delicious.
Fantastic food and great service. We had a table by the fireplace and it felt extremely cozy. The salmon is spectacular!
Had 2 meals there. My husband and I had the short ribs, salmon, and chicken. By far, the short ribs were our favourite.
Delicious and well presented. Excellent service from the wait staff. Beautiful setting, fireplaces all throughout the large restaurant to give it a cozy ambiance. Because of COVID all the tables were spread out. Five star ⭐️ establishment.
Excellent restaurant, delicious food, can’t talk enough of how great the short rib was, 5 stars!
The food was amazing , portions were very good. Our waitress Patricia was amazing - we had a lovely time
Food and service was exceptional. I would highly recommend dining there. Mushrooms on toast, amazing! Prime rib was delish
This is an excellent location for a terrific meal in Niagara-On-The-Lake. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the location is excellent and the food is always prepared to order.
Loved it; pricey but the food was awesome
One of the best dining we had in Niagara Region. From the place to the food and the service, everything was perfect. The price is very reasonable. Looking forward to go back again when everything goes well with this pandemic. Highly recommended.
The service and the ambiance was wonderful, however the food was just alright. I intend to stay at the hotel again, however, I will be looking elsewhere to eat dinner
Beautiful ambiance and great service. Expensive, but huge portions for the price.
Very nice place to eat. We dined with our 1.5 year old daughter and they were extremely accommodating. It was very quiet, which was nice but I felt like I was on eggshells with my daughter. Overall it was very nice and the food was great. It is a bit more expensive than I am used to, but my expensive might be someone else’s cheap
Amazing ambience, fantastic food, great service and tons of wine options. Perfect place for a romantic dinner or quiet family dinner.
Absolutely amazing service and amazing quality food.
Had the beef gnocchi and the Cajun striploin, absolutely incredible. Mushrooms on toast for the app are to die for.
Our server Sharon was wonderful. Wine and meals arrived in good time. Sharon was professional and fun, contributing to a lovely dinner. Food was fantastic, portions were generous and the wine selection was impressive.
We had a lovely meal Sunday night. The prime rib was excellent as were the veggies. Our server Dave was professional, friendly and helpful.
Overall a very good experience.
Great service !!
You will love it !!!
Great ambiance, amazing food, flavorful. No issues, would recommend and go back.
Service was exceptional - friendly and helpful. Meals were delicious. We shared the Mushroom Spread. I had Beef Gnocchi and my husband had the Prime Rib. Portions were generous.
Food was excellent was a little concerned about proximity to other diners
It was the best of times it was the worst of times. I had the prime rib which was amazing. My wife had the beef gnocchi and it was the worst dish we have ever had. It was like a bowl of soup with very little beef and stringy vegetables. This entree has no place on the menu of a restaurant such as this.
Had a wonderful dinner, short ribs with asparagus, nice salad and dessert. Restaurant decorated beautifully for Christmas.
Well worth experience from the taste to the atmosphere
Never disappointed. Always an excellent meal and service. Thank you.
Amazing meal for my birthday celebration. My husband and i both had the prime rib and it was delicious!
The food was fabulous quality. The service was amazing. Nothing bad to say about this restaurant. Very clean and staff wore appropriate PPE.
Our server did not serve the soup that was ordered. Everything else was perfect.
We had such a lovely evening at the Cannery! Being vegan, we were a little nervous about food options, but luckily they had a delicious curry dish. Will definitely be back!
