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.

Delicious food and great service. Definitely a splurge as it’s pretty pricey - but we knew that going in and the food is delicious, so we felt it was worth it. Highly recommend the creme brûlée - and the beef Wellington was cooked to perfection (although this was on the Valentines tasting menu so not sure if it’s available all the time).

What a fantastic meal! We celebrated my husbands birthday and we’re the only ones at the restaurant on this snowy night. Our waiter David could not have been better. He was knowledgeable and attentive and friendly. The meal was outstanding! Definitely would go back.

Service was excellent....view was pretty. Food was enjoyable but was expecting "better" for the prices. Presentation was just ok.
Dining room is very tired and dowdy for a highly rated restaurant. A totally reno is needed!

Great location and we had a great view out of the back windows. Service was attentive and polite, food was very good quality though my dining partners who had lamb shank found it difficult to eat. I had the set lunch and it was great value. $32 for 3 courses!
Will definitely return. It was off season on a Friday so it was really quiet only 13 people in the restaurant.

Super Friendly service. Relaxing dinner. Tasty and savoury food! Menu has something for most everyone but can be limiting if you frequent the restaurant a few times during the season. Should add steak and a daily special for variety. Highly recommended for that special occasion.

Food was very good in presentation and complementary flavors. Service impeccable. Would like to discover more of the capabilities of the new chef.
It was suggested by a friend that I try the Friday special combo to experience the dishes of the new chef.
Wish that it had been mentioned at the restaurant. All in all, a most enjoyable evening. Will definitely go back.

It was a wonderful evening with amazing service from Bryan (great job paring wines with food). Food was excellent and I look for ward to a couple of things from this iconic restaurant.
1. A complete dining room make over, it's still nice but its tired and needs to be fresh.
2. A better wine selection by the class. Vintages from only one local winery is not my thing. I want choice and I hope this changes soon.

Staff is excited about the new management and the changes happening which makes it exciting for existing and new clientele!

Christmas Brunch was a grand slam for our family. Lovely selection, great portions of the hot entrees so we could try most of them. It was our first experience eating out on Christmas, but I hope we can do it again next year. Even the music was excellent.

This was one of the worst restaurant I have ever been to. There were celiac diners among us. The waiter kept bringing out dishes unsuitable for celiac. The chilled white wine was placed on the table beside the candle, not In a wine chiller. The lights were turned up brightly like a cafeteria. I had to ask to have them turned down to create some ambience.
There were few Christmas decorations. Service was slow. It was loud. Very expensive for discomfort and poor service!!
It retrospect, we should not have eaten there at all. We found the atmosphere uncceotable from the start.
Do not waste your money at this restaurant.

The building was being renovated and there was a very strong smell of paint or something when we walked in which was a bit off-putting. Once seated by the windows though, we didn’t notice it and proceeded to have a lovely lunch. Our wait person Linda, was friendly and attentive at all the right times. I ordered the Fish Pie and it came loaded with salmon, peas and leeks in a deliciously subtle dill sauce, and the pastry was excellent! My companion had the Soup of the Day and a salad and enjoyed it too. Dessert was Apple Crisp for her, and Chocolate Pecan Tart for me ...yummy! I Have never had a bad meal at Inn on the Twenty, and will definitely be back.

We had lunch at the Inn on Monday. It was our annual Christmas get together with friends. We love this restaurant, for its lovely setting, and terrific food. We all ordered a different dish, and each one of us raved about how delicious our meals were. Our server, Mary was lovely. Friendly, very professional. Always seemed to know when we needed her, without having to look for her. My husband looked at my meal...the fried chicken thighs, and said, we need to come back next week because I want to order that. The food was absolutely amazing. We will try to get back there in the next week. So worth the drive.

Went to Inn on the Twenty with two girlfriends for lunch. They served bread and butter- the bread was soooo amazing. We had mussels to start which were in a delicious sauce. I had the Winemakers luncheon with a parsnip and apple soup to start and my main I selected was the eggplant and zucchini Parmesan. It was so good. The dessert was an apple crumble which was very tasty. My friends also very much enjoyed their meals. Definitely would go back. Worth the drive.

We came here to celebrate our anniversary as we have been here a few times before and have enjoyed it. We were greeted and seated immediately and everything was fine until the couple right next to us were seated and received complimentary wine for their anniversary. It was pretty upsetting that I specifically said I was there celebrating my anniversary and we got to watch the table next to us be celebrated. The food was great but the Mushroom Risotto could have had better presentation and the vegetable side was a little salty. Bryan was our server and he was absolutely delightful! One last unfortunate part of our time was that my husband left with the finish of the wood on his hands and arms just from resting them there. It would be nice to see them get an update. Also, I’m not sure if the waiters are required to ask this but it was really weird to have both our table and 3 others around us asked by two separate servers “are you sure you don’t want an appetizer to start” and “what about a digestif with your dessert”. It was just be nice to have a little bit more of a tailored experience in that sense.

Five former workmates met for wine and cheese reunion on Tuesday afternoon. Jordan Village is central to the five of us as we are from Burlington, Niagara Falls, Grimsby, Beamsville and Campden. The easy drive was perfect for all. The venue is elegant and friendly, with amazing local shops all around. We lingered for 2.5 hours enjoying cheese boards and other nibbles paired with good wine. The cheese boards were loaded with selection of fine local cheeses for every taste. Soaked preserved whole grapes and cherries were a nice touch along with sweet ripe apricots that went so well with some of the cheeses. The white porcelain spoons of pure honey also complemented each bite. Professional and friendly wait staff were present when needed, more than willing to take photos for us and laugh along with us ... and also disappeared (just enough) to allow us to talk and relax as we liked. Everything was so good that we all decided to stay for another hour and devoured chocolate pecan tarts with bourbon ice cream and the silky creme brulee did not disappoint! Of course we look forward to visiting again soon. Our next reservation will be for the four-course supper advertised at an incredible price and includes endive salad, gnocchi, grid iron steak with all the trimmings, and dessert. We highly recommend On The Twenty restaurant. Booking on line at OpenTable was so easy.
