This restaurant never disappoints. I have eaten here on numerous occasions for dinner. Sensational every time. Definitely worth the drive from Toronto. This occasion was to have lunch with a great friend prior to heading to Niagara Falls. So special. And absolutely fantastic for lunch. Great wine pairings! And fret, not. I am allergic to fish and shellfish and do not eat beef or pork and I was not disappointed. So much care was given to my dish as was given to my friend's (who consumes everything). Will definitely return.

A memorable experience from start to finish! Great service, great food & great wine!

We were asked where we wanted to be seated, ordered the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing. Added the lobster linguine (out of this world)!

Our waiter Taylor was the best! He was courteous, attentive and very knowledgeable. Great asset!

We loved being surprised with the food that was to be served. The only negative for me all night was the duck (not their fault) I just did not like it as a personal taste, as I had never tried it before I chose this by choice just to try something new.

I felt sick during dinner for personal health reasons and feel bad that the staff were so concerned; they kept checking on me! It was just too much food & wine...lol!!

I would go back in a heart-beat but would just order a smaller meal for myself.

We had reservations for their "Grill" room but upon arriving were told that it was closed so we decided to have lunch in their main restaurant. Immediately after we were seated outside, a nearby worker started up a very loud leaf blower... so loud we were unable to have a conversation. After bringing this to our server's attention, she spoke to a manager and it was finally turned off. Then a band was setting up on the lawn area adjacent to us and turned on some kind of irritating machine, and then proceeded to test the microphones throughout our entire lunch (1,2 ee, aw, 1,2 ee, aw, 1,2 ee, aw). The noise was so amazingly bad, all we could do was laugh and wait for what was coming next! I ordered the linguine with lobster. It was very tasty but the lobster was tough and chewy. My husband ordered the salmon which he stated was "good." The meal was very pricey and there were only six items on the menu to choose. And they were not typical lunch foods, more like what I would order for dinner. I don't think we will be returning.

Very disappointed. Too much wine and too little food. No explanation of food. Many people bring out food so no one really talks. $400 too much for wine paring and dinner. Was hoping for a better experience for the style of restaurant.

Patty and I can not say enough about our dinner, atmosphere and service.
We had the three course option.
Jordan our server was extraordinary. Professional, polite, funny , personable,and a complete gentleman. we could talk to him without being rushed. The rest of the wait staff were all extremely courteous.
Our entire meal was out of this world delicious.
Jason the main chef, his masterpieces of food are world class.

This is our 2nd time visiting the restaurant. We have done lunch previously and now dinner. We couldn't be happier. The service is fantastic, the food is divine. We did the tasting and pairing menu. You may think the portions are small - but you do get full. It is a bit pricey, but definitely worth it. The ambiance, the wine is fantastic (we are also wine club members), just beautiful. You will not regret it.

After hearing many great things, we were so disappointed. Nothing lived up to expectations. After being encouraged to order the sharing special, we were informed they were out of both mains and needed to substitute. The duck was served pretty much raw. Food generally unimpressive. Lacklustre service, with several forgotten items. After booking weeks in advance for a special occasion, our table wasn't ready when we arrived. Don't waste your money. Go to Two Sisters winery. Their restaurant, Kitchen 76, is fabulous with great service.

Food was amazing but pricey for what we got. Lunch for 4 was well over $500. Amazing meal but for that pricepoint there are better options in my opinion. My 14 month old sons meal was about $30 which he did not even eat. Scenery was lovely, service was great. A few flies in the room but everything else was exceptional. Amazing experience, I just think they could have done more for that pricepoint. (more wine or food) 3 of us had the tasting menu

We had lunch on the terrace of the restaurant, overlooking the vineyards.
We were very pleasantly greeted by the hostess who kindly gave us a table outside on this beautiful day.
Our waiter was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable on both all the items on the menu as well as the wines.
It was a very enjoyable long leisurely and extremely delicious gastronomic lunch and I recommend it very warmly.

It would have been perfect had a stage not been being erected for an upcoming festival and some really dreadful singers not been singing

The set meal was excellent
Great flavours
Additional lobster linguine was superb!
Halibut course was the only disappointment as fish had been overlooked/dried out. The flavours of the accompanying squid ink risotto were very good however.

Service fantastic

Chef Jason Parsons did not disappoint and the food came out of the kitchen in a timely manner. However, service was uneven, with our server forgetting my wine pairings twice. He offered to take one off the bill - it was set up after the course was eaten - and completely forgot the wine pairing for the third course.
And the late, complimentary second wine pairing was actually not taken off the bill. Disappointed, as we had booked our reservation at least 2 weeks prior to our lunch for my husband’s birthday - which birthday was not even acknowledged.

Also, there was a pretty hard sell from winery staff to join their Wine Club, which was off-putting. We would return to the restaurant, though, to taste more of Chef Parson’s food.

Had the tasting menu and it was good but expected really different things than those on the actual menu. We had heard that the wines weren't great before we went but tried anyway. We had a sparkling, Sauvignon blanc, merlot, cab franc and a cab franc dessert wine. Weren't anything special. However the ambiance and service was really what makes the visit worthwhile and the view was fantastic.

The service and dining room ambiance was excellent. Servers knew the food and details on the wines they were serving. Two of us had the tasting menu and the other ordered a la carte. The signature seafood lobster linguine appeared to have been under a heat lamp as the sauce had begun to set. For the type of restaurant and price, we expected better.

As always, the tasting menu did not disappoint. Food was all excellently prepared and tasty. Wine pairings were interesting. Our only negative was we waited more than 20 minutes for one course. They had brought the wine pairing, which makes you think the course is imminent, but that was not the case. They did apologize and compensate with a cheese tray (how did they know that was my weakness?). Overall, I would highly recommend. The view on the vines is relaxing.

One of the wines served with the 6 wines being offered to accompany the various courses was a Riesling that was undrinkable to us. Another was offered and we were charged $18.00 extra. I felt that as we were paying $155 per person, an alternate included wine should have been served without such a supplement.
There was a lot of food and you are unable to have any choice except with the fish and meat main courses.
The waiter encouraged us to have tagliatelle with lobster paoched in ice wine. It was by far the best part of the meal. However my guests were then so full they could not eat the veal medallions.
When they bill came , I was charged $20.00 per person extra for this course which we did not really need. At no time was there any mention by the waiter of such a supplementary charge for this extra course.
Overall I felt the kitchen had extended itself too far and the meal was not totally satisfactory.
