We love Honsberger for the incredible atmosphere and local music. Delicious wine
Disappointed in the meal, my husband ordered chicken supreme, it was dry and also looked so bare in the plate, more vegetables are needed
I ordered the seafood pasta, it was good. However no follow up with Parmesan cheese and no spoon to twirl the pasta. It was awkward to eat
These are fixable issues.

We love visiting Honsberger, this was our first time dining inside as we have always come in the summer. The live music was perfect for a beautiful Sunday lunch. Great experience, would definitely recommend!

Yes - enjoyed it and plan to go back in the future - just an observation that they had a limited drink list, so go for the food and ambiance and enjoy!

The space is lovely, with a fireplace warming it and providing a sense of comfort. The food is all right but nothing to rave about.

Had a great dinner in The Barn last night. It’s such a beautiful space! Eily was a very personable and knowledgeable server. Their wines, including their Brut, were top notch. Food was fabulous. I will definitely be back for the Arancini soon!

A treasure of a restaurant. We've enjoyed the patio many times but this was the first time we ate inside. It's stunning to look at, the food was amazing (all 4 of us tried something different and loved it all) and the service was fantastic. We'll definitely be back over the winter.

Enjoyable experience. Wonderful atmosphere -cozy and warm - and the service and food quality was exceptional.

Highly recommend this winery.

We had been attracted to the wood fired pizza on the menu but that was outside and ended last week. But we decided to stay after looking at the menu because the inside of the barn was so attractive. Tables were spaced out and there was a lovely fire burning. Started out with drinks and an appetizer at the bar...so far so good. But that was all to change after we moved to our table. Ordered a salad to share and our entrees. Salad arrived on one plate with no utensils to divide or no plates on which to put it. ( used our bread plates and own forks ). Our Server had disappeared! We sat for 35 minutes before my husband inquired about our main course...after another 10 minutes we decided to leave. then, of course, our server was apologetic but our appetites had been spoiled by the experience. The restaurant is lovely to look at but they need to get their act together! Cannot recommend!

We had no expectations when we arrived and quickly discovered a magical place. The ambiance was beautiful and the food and wine delicious. Our server was quite nice but not the most attentive. I would definitely go back especially in the summer when the patio and pizza oven are open

Lovely venue, excellent service and the food was very good. We will go back when we can enjoy the patio. The weather for our visit was cool and windy, so we ate inside.

Had lunch there several days ago and it was great! We had pizza and the polenta fries and a refreshing limoncello lemonade. The food was amazing, the ambiance was relaxing and tranquil amongst the beautiful gardens, can’t wait to go back.

Always a pleasure to spend an evening at Honsberger Estate. I am so fortunate to live in the neighbourhood. It is our go to place to take visitors just so they can see what amazing experiences we have in Niagara.

We waited quite a while for our meal and one member of our party received their meal about 10 minutes before everyone else. Quite awkward eating in front of the other members of our party and almost be finished eating before all others even received their meal.

Quality food and live music in a country farm setting..and their own wine to boot. A unique setting for a very enjoyable meal. Although the Calypso music was a little out of place, it was professional and fun.
They specialize in wood oven pizzas accompanied by a small but varied menu. We especially enjoyed the Edamame appetizer.

An open-air dining establishment in a winery during summer, with an outdoors pizza wood oven. We dined there in mid-September. The quality of our striploin and pizza was excellent. The AAA striploin was large and properly grilled to rare-medium rare as requested. The thin crust pizza had a wonderful charred , crispy outer crust from the wood oven. If you're a salt lover, you would be in nirvana. The kitchen was enthusiastic in its use of salt. Even the pizza had a liberal dose of salt. To its credit, staff offered to take the dishes back, but we had already eaten a fair chunk by then. The restaurant nicely did discount the price. They suggested diners identify their salt request at time of ordering, much like for allergies. Diners should do that in all restaurants.
Open-air dining is susceptible to weather. During our meal, it was cool and windy. The food got cold very quickly. Something to be aware of.
