Everything was perfect. The food service and setting was perfect. The Moffit Inn had a shuttle to and from the Estate which was also perfect.
Great evening

We had the tasting menu and have had those at many fine restaurants. While the presentation was very nice and the dishes were a nice variety, we felt they were under seasoned and lacked a depth of flavor that we have experienced with other tasting menus. In addition, it must be noted that the 5 courses took approximately 2 1/2 hours to serve. We waited over 25 minutes after the wine was poured for the 4th course to be served. In fairness, the server compted us a cheese plate in recognition of the delay. Because of the above factors, primarily the somewhat bland food, we will probably not return.

Food was not bad. Ambience could be better if we did have to fight against flies during the whole meal. Hostess did not offer any help when we mentioned the annoyance. Disappointing experience.

Yes. We enjoyed our evening and the meal, although there were a couple of things that posed a problem. My wife ordered the veal loin cooked to medium, but it arrived more well done. Some dishes haad a palenta that contained goat cheese. Two of our party dislike the strong smell of goat cheese and had to ask for a substitute.

Ate lunch on the patio before going to a show. The hostess and wait staff were delightful. The food was excellent and the presentation was lovely. Wine, of course, was wonderful. We really enjoyed it.

Our guest decided to sit outside and by that they felt the service was bad. Table was not cleaned and bread crumbs all over. Service was very slow. Meals were excellent. They complained to the Manager and he said the bill is on the house and they declined it and paid for it with no tip.

I have dined at Peller Estates quite a few times over the years and have always enjoyed the experience. On this latest occasion, however, my wife and I were disappointed. The ambiance and service were very good as usual, as was the quality of the food, but the portion sizes were unsatisfactory. My appetizer was particularly disappointing, as was the trace amount of lobster in the lobster fettuccine. After having spent $223 on a two-course lunch, including one glass of wine each, one does not expect to still feel hungry!

The food was incredible and they were very accommodating to some of our parties dietary needs. Our waitress unfortunately was not very enthusiastic about our needs. But she did take our requirements and no one got sick so they did a great job there. Other than the waitress (which is the first time ever we had a bad experience) it was a great evening.

Celebrating a birthday. Had a free fizzy wine champagne for birthday. Food portions were very small but delicious.
I rated the service 3 stars because the staff that seated us was very disorganized. We were asked to wait to set our table although we had reservations . They didn’t have enough menus and kept bringing ones to share and after we were seated she came to take one of our chairs away, which we needed . We said we had a child with us but they didn’t offer a high chair . Which when they bring it had a broken belt and they changed it. Not a big deal but these things shouldn’t happen in a high end restaurant.

A girlfriend and I were looking for a treat for a "non kids" lunch and we were so pleased with Peller Estates. We had their 3 course Sparkling Lunch on the patio. The staff were very attentive and the food was out of this world. So many flavours! Highly recommend.

The food was exceptionally delicious. The portions - pretty tiny! So, not a great value if considering the quantity for the price. BUT, as every bite was so packed with flavor and so unique and such a delight, it was actually worth it. So, if you can afford it, this is definitely a place where you should order from every category, from the appetizer to the main menu and on to desert - which was also totally delicious - because you will have room for it all and be totally satisfied doing so. Highly recommend this unique and fabulous culinary experience.

We had a lovely quiet dinner with outstanding dishes. The menu is small, but the chefs have clearly planned taste combinations that enhance the ingredients in unexpected ways. No leftovers to take home with perfect portions of impeccably prepared meals. Dress nicely to match the beauty of the surroundings. Plan to speak quietly because you won’t need to yell. The servers are pleasant hosts and you’ll appreciate being their valued guest.

This is a priceless experience with the perfect food, ambiance and service! If you can, go with the wine pairing! Won’t regret! We decided to take the 4 course menu which was surprise dishes. It was very good with a smoked duck breast, chicken and pork terrine, a soup and a pork tenderloin :) pricey but it was awesome still :) we need to treat ourselves :)

The location of the restuarant and the ambiance were both perfect, we are vegans so not the best place for us. I read the menu before and a vegan meal was adverstised but the chef made a totally different meal, which was basically a salad. made out of carrots, qunioa and edame.
Tasted ok but not what we were expecting.

What can be better on a summer day than sitting on the patio, getting a tasting menu with wine pairing, looking at the vineyards! The food is excellent - (Thank you chef for having the skill to make vegetarian, tasting menu that is exquisite in it's own right and can stand beside the standard menu ).
Excellent wines and food make for an enjoyable 3 hour evening!

Wonderful place, not to be missed on your tour of Niagara on the Lake Wine tours.

I had the 5 course sampler with wine pairings. A little pricy but well worth it. It is truly an experience for a culinarian. Don’t expect gluttony but expect to savour. Be open to a new experience of cuisine and you’ll be elated. One of the best meals I’ve ever eaten - fresh, seasonal, vibrant, local and well seasoned.

This was not the first visit to the restaurant. We come back because we enjoy dining al fresco on the terrace. Food is always something to look forward to.
The sparkling wine was unexpected and very much appreciated!
We enjoyed the music by Nathan Warriner on our June 28 visit,and got to chat with him before he left.
The perfect night!
Thank you!

Have been to this winery several times. It is always very good and the patio views spectacular!!!!. My only complaint this time was that I booked a patio table to celebrate my wife's birthday. When we arrived they informed me that the patio was closed because they had re-finished the surface of the tables. I understand that maintenance must be done but why in the summer two days before a long weekend, why not in the winter? If they had told me before hand I could have booked a different day. Was disappointed as it was a beautiful hot summer day and had driven over 200km from London Ont.!!!!

The dishes we had - lobster linguine, pumpkin soup (soup of the day), cheese board and the pork dish were ordinary. Nothing to shout about. The service was excellent though. Recommendations of wine were good. The ambience was great. Beautiful and cheerful dining space. However the noise level could be keep lower.

Outstanding food. Outstanding service. This is a first class restaurant, and priced accordingly.

You will not leave disappointed. Kids are more than welcome and off-menu food choices will satisfy even the fussiest.

And try the wine. The perfect complement to your meal.

From our receptionist/hostess to our waitress (Sandra) and her assistant (Glen) to our menu de degustation to our wine pairing, this was a perfect evening in every regards. The Chef's tastings were creative and prepared to perfection. Their choice of wine for each plate was the best. This experience goes down in our books as one of the top 10 dinning experiences we have enjoyed throughout our worldly travels.
