Food and wine was delicious! This is the second time we've been here and it doesn't disappoint! I was also on crutches and the staff did everything to help me. Definitely recommend and we will most certainly be back!

First night of our get away and we were last reservation of the night. We never felt rushed the whole evening. Excellent service and the staff very knowledgeable and friendly. Mussels were good, salmon was excellent (generous portions) and the stuffed chicken breast excellent as well. Would highly recommend this winery to everyone. We came back the next day on our bike trip and Seth amazed us with his knowledge of the wines he served us.

I would go again for a dinner. Was there for lunch and realize there are shareable, but would like to see more lunch options, or separate lunch menu. I thought it was a bit pricey for lunch, but the food was good.

We really enjoy the setting and the food at North 42. It is in our top 3 places to go for lunch or dinner. The waiters we had both time is excellent at her job. She knows the food and will change things up to suit our needs. Highly recommend it to anyone interested in visiting winery

Though our overall experience was very nice we did experience a hitch or two.
Although we knew you were a winery we thought we could enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail. Our friend asked to order a Caesar or a Magherita neither of which were available to him.
We were told that the gnocchi entree was not available and when he tried to order the scallops he was told that they also were not available.
Our reservation was for 6:00pm and we found it somewhat annoying that a restaurant would be out of items that early over dinner.
Our waiter was very pleasant and courteous but somewhat embarrassed that he had to keep telling us that what we wanted to order was not available.

This winery was an unexpected surprise. It was in a lovely location and restaurant offered a beautiful view of the vineyards and lavender garden. Staff were knowledgeable about the wines offered in the tasting flights. The Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon Rose, Summer Chill and Gerwurztraminer were our favourites.
The leisurely lunch in the restaurant including dessert was excellent. We had the stuffed chicken breast with scalloped potatoes with a medley of seasonal, local vegetables and Chocolate tart for dessert. Outstanding lunch and outstanding service. Hope to get back there next year.

Flavors were outstanding, not our first time savoring their offerings. Pork belly was excellent, mussels were also. Found little light on the cheese balance on the Meat and Cheese board.
Service was excellent and the chef even checked on our experience.

Great space for a restaurant. The server was attentive. The food was decent but could have been better - more flavor in the various sauces. I might return again to see if there are improvements.

Thank you guys for a wonderful experience once again. Your food is by far the best out of all the surrounding wineries. My only regret is the date I brought there with me 🙄 will definitely be coming again. Will definitely be bringing someone else

Yes but with a caveat. Beautiful facility with gorgeous views. However the food was not the best. The beef tips were like rubber and not hot. The mussels were good. The scallops were also cold with not much taste.
Undecided as to whether We try it again.

My wife and I celebrated our 43 anniversary and enjoyed a nice dinner.
We read a few bad reviews and were having 2nd thoughts but decided to take a chance.

Was very attentive and made good recommendations. Thank you Page for the great service and enjoyable dining experience. Only negative comment wine was a little pricey but acceptable.

The food at North 42 Bistro is excellent. The service was extremely responsive. My only comment is the dining chairs are uncomfortable if you are taller. I thought it was only me at 5’8” but my dinging partner also commented. Seats of the chairs are low so if you are experiencing hip problems it will be a quick night.

The daily goncchi never disappoints! Majority of the dining room has a gorgeous view of the vineyard. Ask to be seated in the alcove for a view of the lavender garden on one side, and vineyard on the other.

Excellent food...top notch in fine dining. We had the steak, the salmon, and the chicken and eat dish was excellent. The inside did get noisy due to a large group of young women who were part of a pre-wedding celebration but it did not interfere with our dining.
