We hold Peller in high regard but have found it slipping the last few visits. I would no longer recommend the tasting menu as the actual menu options are more exciting. The staff changes are also impacting the overall ambience. not as personal or professional as it used to be unfortunately. Disheartening especially with the overall options in the region. It had been our favorite venue and we always attended New years also with a party of people but not as keen as we used to be.

An almost-annual tradition for us on our anniversary, Peller hasn’t disappointed us yet.

Tonight we got to sit in the back corner and enjoy the new banquette seating, new carpet, and new lighting in the main dining room. Everything looks great, although the cushions on the banquette have a partition right where you sit, so it could have been custom-made to not split there.

The cuisine was really great again. The lobster linguine should really be offered as a main and the duck was surprisingly well spiced.

We’ll definitely be back again! Lovely setting, great music (a lot of great 1930’s/1940’s tunes) and really good service.

This was the first time I have ever tried a food tasting with a wine pairing. Every dish that arrived to our table was artistically plated, with great colours and textures. Our waitress Ashley explained each dish, and ingredients and interesting stories about the ingredients. I was pleasantly surprised by the ingredients that went into each dish. I loved the tasting, and trusting the chef to come up with my surprise meal, and of course each wine that was perfectly paired to each dish! I would really reccomend a good tasting with a wine tasting for a special occasion, because this is an experience you will remember for a very long time!

Well -- this was our 3rd or 4th visit to Pellar Estates, and our 3rd with the Tasting Menu. To say we were disappointed would be an understatement. In 50 years of dining, this was probably the least memorable meal we have ever had. We had 2 very small appetizers, neither of which we would call exceptional - both used baby bok choy as the main supporting green. We had a soup which was actually pretty good. Then we got the "entree" - it was about 1/2 or less of what a full entree would be, and was yet again supported by baby bok choy - perhaps the kitchen had an overabundance. The desert was good. The service was good, but not exceptional. Overall, for what we paid (considerably more than had we gone with the ala-carte menu), it was an extreme disappointment -- we may in the future return here, but certainly not for the tasting menu.

Annual tradition to spending a day at NOTL in the first week of the New Year. Peller Estates has become part of that tradition. Thank you for a wonderful meal and exceptional service. Plus, the sparkling wine and ice wine was delicious.

This was our 9th New Year’s Eve lunch in a row. On top of that we visit for the tasting menu at least once a year (we try to come seasonally) since December 2010 when we moved to the area. I’m very surprised and impressed that in the 20+ times that we have been for the tasting menu, we have never had the same dish twice! Absolutely worth visiting to try the tasting menu. Leave the food decision to the chef.

The staff at Peller were outstanding. I planned my engagement there & they went above & beyond to accommodate me to make it easy & seamless. After I popped the question & she said Yes of course, they all came to congratulate & just made it feel that much more special & perfect. Thank you to everyone at Peller. Will always be our special place now.

My daughter and I went for lunch and we both loved our experience!
We have both been to this beautiful Pellar Restaurant several times and have always enjoyed it, thus the reason for returning time and time again.
The food is always superb, the dining room itself is lovely and well appointed, the tables are well spaced so there's no chance of bumping into others at a nearby table, etc., etc.
We will both definitely be returning in the near future.

We have been to Peller Estates restaurant in the past and again, it did not disappoint us, well worth our drive from Rochester, NY. Day or night time dining, looking out the many windows on the beautiful surroundings, it is a relaxing and special moment each time. And what makes it so special is the superb, comfortable service by all, a true dining experience.

The food also did not disappoint either, unique and excellently prepared. Most notable was the seasonal appetizer escargots in a perfectly prepared sauce with unbelievable flavor, outstanding! My wife's main course was vegetarian beautifully prepared with a variety of vegetables and good paired sauce. Mine was the salmon dish, cooked expertly and very tasty. Possible wish there was some additional seafood items to choose from since that is mine & wife's preference. However, the preparation and taste is excellent on all their dinners.

Lastly, in the past, we had chief's samplings of some items and complimentary ice wines tasting with our dinner. The chief's tastings was a unique and added to the total experience of a true Top Class dinning experience. The tasting did not occur this time and was missed.

Regarding the ice wine samplings, which did not occur this time, we vividly recall when offered to us, saying "no, since we do not like sweet wines". Well the server said we should try it since it is different, etc. We did and after tasting a white & red small bottle, we decided to purchase one to take home to share with our 'non-liking sweet wine friends'! I thought it was a great way of promoting / marketing Peller's Ice wines. Understand that this may have been a 'promo' but it was another neat experience of dinning at Pellers!

We sure will be back to dine at Peller Estate Winery Restaurant!

The restaurant is a beautiful venue, and the service is excellent. The food however was disappointing. I had the beef short rib and my wife had the chicken with risotto. The beef rib was very tasty but the veggies werew very plain and had to have salt and pepper added as well as the potatoes. The chicken was well cooked but flavourless as was the risotto, both needed salt and pepper. This was our first visit to the restaurant and it was the flavouricious promotion that was on. We will try it again with the regular menu and hopefully with better results

Awesome service by the restaurant team! I always recommend it to everyone. Now I know the golden level of professional service the diners are given, I definitely felt more fortunate to be in the same building with the server and kitchen team. Absolutely amazing job guys!

I took my mom to her first lunch on November 15th, 2018, after her 14 hrs flight and some rest. Andrea was our server and she was so nice to us, especially, very respectful to my mom. I'm very touched by how professional and understanding she is. Thank you so much Andrea, you made our day!

And, Jing, thank you for coming over and explaining the dishes again for me and my mom in Chinese. My mom really appreciated it!
