The Oven restaurant is our seasonal outdoor patio, utilizing a wood-fired pizza oven. We are completely outdoors, with no indoor seating. If it rains, we now have a beautiful awning that will protect from the rain, with some exception to moving inside. On wedding days, we cannot move inside, so it is come rain or come shine.

I knew about this place, and had not tried it, but when i was made aware of the evening with a Latin band, i immediately made a reservation. It would have been awesome, and for a few minutes it was, because they sounded great and made the whole experience feel like i was somewhere tropical. But the band played VERY little. In my 1 1/2 hours, they took 3 LONG breaks. I and my dinner companion were so disappointed..... that was the reason I went there! So we liked everything else, and I will go back, but please tell entertainers to entertain! Otherwise there is no point!

We've driven past every year since it opened...so pleased we finally stopped for dinner. Great food in a lovely outdoor setting. In the middle of the farm and vineyards between the former barn and the 100 year old house. An oasis of flowers, trees and dining tables. We had Edamame as our shared appetizer. for our mains, the wood-oven pizzas. FUN-GI Roasted Garlic. Mozzarella. Goat Cheese. Sundried Tomato. And the roast beef with horse-radish and cheese. More than enough...in fact we took some pizza back to the hotel for breakfast. The Honsberger Reisling and Pino Noir wines rounded out our evening.
It turned out that Wednesday evening is their music night and we very much enjoyed the guitar and vocals of Michael Saracino.
A perfect night.

Went with a friend to experience Honsberger. We are going to check out new wineries in Niagara.
We were surprised by the lovely atmosphere, grand old home, animals and general ease and peacefulness
of your winery. Staff were very gracious too.

We would return. Food good. Down the driveway to a private, peaceful spot of unexpected size, variety
of spots .

Great place. Food, drinks, musician and ambience are all above average. Service was slow but we weren’t in a rush and planned on staying for the evening to listen to music so it didn’t ruin our experience.
Will be back and recommend for anyone.

Wednesdays are the busiest night at Honsberger and on the night we dined there, July 11, the service was terribly slow. We were later told that Wednesday is the busiest and slowest night. The singer is popular and many patrons seemed to be enjoying the beautiful summer evening and dining leisurely. But for us, at a casual restaurant, the wait was much too long. We were seated at 7:45 p.m. Our dinners arrived cold at 9 p.m. We were seated at the bar and watched numerous dinners being prepared. After a half hour we began to thing the next one would be ours, but we waited and waited. A couple who came in after us by 15 minutes finished their dinner and left and still we waited. Finally the food came at 9 p.m., but my fish tacos were cold and unappetizing. My husband's burrito was lukewarm. To her credit, the server removed the food charge for my item which was the coldest. (My husband ate his.) We have visited Honsberger three times in recent weeks, and so this bad experience was a surprise. The pizzas looked better on this visit, though we did not order one. Previously, we were disappointed with the pizzas. The ingredients were skimpy and one was burned. On a warm summer night, this is a lovely spot, but we won't be back for awhile.

A friend and I drove by Honsberger Estate about a month ago and thought we should try it one day. So on June 30th I went online to book a reservation for July 1st and we were welcomed right from the start. It was nice to sit on the patio and enjoy the sights. The grounds are beautiful and we could see the horses from where we sat. The waitress recommended a cool summer drink that was delicious and refreshing. We ordered the pizza special of the day and the salad. It was just what we expected. Every person working that day was awesome. Alot of people came to the restaurant but we never felt rushed to leave. The whole experience was over the top. Have already recommended Honsberger Estates to many friends and family.
I know that I will returning again for another fantastic outing.

Cheers

Our favorite place for outdoor dining! We love watching the horses in the paddock, parking under the trees, and enjoying the unobtrusive entertainment. Service tends to be a little on the slow side, which is nice, so don’t expect everything to come rushing at you at once - it’s not that kind of place. It’s not like a roadhouse on an US Interstate, is what I’m saying.

What it is, is absolutely charming and bucolic!

You’ll love it!

Wood fired pizza was great, drinks were great, but service was slow. Could have been because it was one of the hottest days of the year and they only have outdoor dining. I think I would have been working slower in those conditions as well. Would give it another try! Ambience is great!

I was so impressed with the ambience of the place and the delicious food, but it was actually Keisha’s wonderful service that put it over the top. She was lovely and attentive and arranged for a piece of cheesecake to be brought out for my mom who was celebrating her 78th birthday. We fully enjoyed our time there and will continue to spread the word about this wonderful restaurant!

We have been to Honsberger before and enjoy the wood fired pizza, patio and Country casual atmosphere. We went to celebrate Fathers day and as usual the service was friendly and efficient.
The pizza was good, but I was somewhat taken aback at the cost of drinks this year. A bottle of wine is now $40, glass is $10 and the beer was 10 as well. This is the quite an increase (last yr. Btl. Of wine Was 20 something). Based on this, the value equation isn't the same as before and now would compete with many other finer restaurants in the Niagara area.
