On The Twenty was envisioned as a place where Niagara's food and wine bounty could be presented in an innovative and inspiring way. We aim to deliver freshness and sophistication to meals that will harmonize well with the wines of Cave Spring and its colleagues in this unique wine region. Where possible, we focus on fresh regional produce that our neighbours grow here in Niagara. Our location was decided on by Leonard Pennachetti who, when looking for a building with a great cellar, happened upon the old Jordan Wines building. The building in which the restaurant is located dates back to the 1830s. The addition of the terrace, restaurant, meeting space, gardens, and many retail boutiques have totally changed the character of both the building and this end of historic Jordan Village. All in all, Jordan Village makes a great destination for a day trip, special event, or a romantic getaway. It is our privilege to enjoy Jordan everyday, we would love to share it with you.

Food was great. It got very loud and felt a little rushed by wait staff. Go often though and always recommend.

Still one of the best fine dining restos in the Niagara area. The service is exceptional and the food is superb. We were a little concerned when the new owners too over that the former high standards would not be met...we needn't have worried.
On this occasion we had the Sushi Style scallops and Sweet Potato soup appetizers , the Roast chicken with a goat cheese stuffing and Halibut mains. All were uniquely flavoured and cooked to perfection.

Beautiful view from our table of the gardens. The food and service were excellent. I gave this restaurant 5 stars for value, because you get high quality gourmet food, perfect sized portions, excellent service and a wonderful ambiance without inflated prices. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone taking a trip down the winery routes in Niagara Region.

Booked in July for our Golden Wedding (50th) Anniversary dinner on September 1st with the family (7). I specifically mentioned the occasion, the fact that 3 guests were vegetarian and there were 2 children, ages 15 & 10. Apart from being wished a Happy Anniversary by our waiter, no other ‘niceties’ were offered. There was only 1 vegetarian option as an entree - gnocchi, which my daughter doesn’t like. There was a pasta dish but it had pancetta on it. The waiter offered to provide the pasta dish without pancetta. My 10 year old granddaughter also asked for the pasta without pancetta & mushrooms. When the pasta dishes were served, there were vegetables added, presumably in lieu of the pancetta. My granddaughter had mushrooms in her pasta & the added vegetables were squash, not to her liking. It is such a cop-out to remove meat from a pasta dish & add more vegetables for vegetarians - where was the protein?
The price was Fine Dining but unfortunately the service and quality of food were definitely not Fine Dining. Disappointing, we won’t go back.

Great place for a quiet lunch with a view of the beautiful garden through the back window. Attentive and always friendly service. Very good food and great desserts. There is comfort food, and this is definitely a comfort place.

Room was too cold, seated under AC blowing, soup was warm, not hot and waitress cleared my wife’s plate while I was still eating. She should have waited and cleared the four of us at the same time.
Not likely to return very soon.

Beautiful restaurant in terms of decor, view, and ambience but entrees are small for the price point. Service terrific - attentive & pleasant. Appropriate setting for date, special occasion, or business dinner. Middle-aged to elderly crowd so keep this in mind if looking for a different demographic.

We get together once a year at your restaurant and really enjoy the atmosphere, the service and the food. We plan to meet again next year around the same time.
Thank you.
If you have never been to downtown Jordan, you should and make sure you stop at the Inn on the Twenty.
Hope it is as memorable as it has been for us for the last 6 years. Cheers

We love the atmosphere and the food is fantastic. The menus are different every time we visit this place and we never complained. I am very sensitive to preservatives and tenderizers and MSG and I have allergy to avocado and soy and garlic. I never had any problems or discomfort after having lunch in this place. I highly recommend it to everybody.

It took us about 40 minutes to drive from Niagara on the Lake to Jordan where this restaurant is located...it was worth every minute! Excellent food and service. Our waiter was very knowledge on local wines and his recommendations for food and wines were perfect. Do not miss!!!

Delicious food made with a great combination of fresh and local ingredients. It is great to pair with a wine tasting at Cave Spring next door. The ambiance is best if you request a seat by the window, the view is lovely.

We had the Winemaker's 3 course lunch, which was good value for $32. The mushroom soup was very tasty and mushroomy. The boneless fried chicken leg was tender and tasty. The snapper was a bit overcooked.
I always like CaveSpring Rielsing and the dry one did not disappoint - fruity pineapple and pear.
Service was friendly and efficient. Our table overlooked a wooded ravine - very pleasant on a sunny afternoon.

Found the menu too experimental
Who serves uncooked scallops? They were not even marinated anyways quatrefoil Dundas / twisted lemon Lincoln / two sisters Niagara on lake are all better bets

Our waitress was busy with 2 fairly large groups 8+ and we had to ask for coffee refills several times. She was pleasant and helpful and did her best!
Traffic from Oakville was terrible. May rethink the drive next time

We were on a wine tour mini vacation & had reservations elsewhere. We decided the day before to change them to The Twenty...great decision. We sat outside for lunch, a beautiful day. Our server was great, very friendly and helpful. We had the gnocchi....I called them “little pillows of heaven” they were that good. I would recommend this restaurant for a date night or out with friends or family.

This was our 4th visit and we have enjoyed every meal. It was a wonderfully prepared meal. The taste and portion sizes were perfect.
We left the meal feeling pleasantly full.
The only thing I would have liked is to have my soup hotter. I prefer piping hot soup. The taste however was outstanding.

We have eaten at Inn on the Twenty numerous times over the years, and it has consistently been an outstanding experience. The menu changes in subtle ways each time, and the food, service, and whole atmosphere is first rate. This most recent visit I had the duck, my wife had the lamb, both frequent menu items, but done a little differently this time. I often get the creme brulee for dessert, and this time is was blueberry -- fantastic! The service is always perfect. We'll keep going back....
