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.

A wonderful evening in a charming dining room with great service from our waiter. The food was different, tasteful, exciting and extremely delicious. Certainly not a disappointment but was exceptional which is what we wanted for the evening we were there.

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.

The food was OK but not great by any means - very overpriced for what you get. Service was OK but a bit too snobby for our taste. We spent about $600 for 6 adults - but I felt like we probably would have gotten better service / food quality somewhere else. Wont be back.

This gem of a restaurant is located in Jordan, an old farming village about 10 km west of St. Catharines (take Jordan exit off QEW). Cave Springs winery opened the 20 around 25 years ago. It's beautifully situated alongside the 20 mile creek. The restaurant itself is very attractive, with tall windows overlooking the Jordan valley. The food is superb and very reasonably priced,, and the service is excellent. The wine list is limited, not surprising as it is owned by CS. Highly recommended. An easy detour if you're on the way to Niagara on the Lake or the Falls.

Food was outdated as was décor.
Very tired looking, chairs were worn and uncomfortable.
Had the fish pie. Tasted okay but not enough fish to keep hunger at bay for more than a couple of hours.
More fish in the pie would have upped the protein content and therefor satiety.

We have been going to the Inn on the twenty for more than two decades and have always had great service and excellent food and this time was no exception. There was a bit of an uncomfortable situation at the table beside us and staff handled it perfectly and very discretely. I would suggest that the lunch menu is little bit lacking in adventurousness, then again I Don't have any suggestions to offer.
Bottom line is,,we enjoyed our food and had a very pleasant birthday lunch and will be back again.

Restaurant/Open Table system is unacceptable! We couldn't reserve a place for our son at our table, although there were at least ten ten tables empty throughout the two hours we were at lunch. Restaurant lost revenue, server lost a tip and we lost the pleasure of a son's company.!

We were there for my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary and loved the food. Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. We would have liked to be closer to the action in the restaurant (our group of 8 was kind of sequestered), and the meals came out VERY long after ordering (we waited approximately 40-50 mins for main courses and weren’t checked in very often). That being said, the food 100000% was worth the wait - everything was incredibly tasty and the perfect portions.

Everything was lovely, food delicious, good value for money, just a bit of a disconnect between ordering, arrival of appetizers then quite a long wait for the mains to arrive (30+minutes, after the appetizer plates were cleared. The restaurant was only about 1/4 full so it’s not like the kitchen was slammed. Won’t stop me from going back. Very good food and value.

Went here for my sister’s birthday with my parents after a lovely day wine tasting in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Food and cocktails were unreal! For drinks I got the Rosemary Bourbon Lemonade and my sister got the Lavender Collins both were very well put together cocktails. I got the Steelhead Trout and my sister and Mom got the Short Rib and my dad got the dinner special of that day. Everything was amazing! The trout was cooked perfectly and the short rib literally fell off the bone. For dessert My sister and I shared the white chocolate coconut tart and my parents got the peach crumble and both were so delicious. Would definitely return and highly recommend!
