Beautiful atmosphere. Friendly staff. Delicious food!
Beautiful setting and really nice to have live music outside on the patio. Food was good but not accurate in it's description. (ie. Manhattan Chowder was more of a seafood soup). Service was horribly inattentive and slow. We were given 2 food menus for 3 people, no side plates or cutlery when food arrived and frequently had to wave down server to get items, ask for bill, etc.
Not sure if I would recommend Honsberger Estate to friends. Overall the food we had was good, however, it could also be described as "ok". The Hons Burger was average. I was quite surprised that they charged fir every cup of coffee. Haven't experienced that ever. I asked for another cloth napkin and when I was using it on my face I felt something rubbing against my face but not the same texture. Opening it up I discovered a piece of chewing gum stuck inside. I gave the napkin to the server who apologized however no one else ever addressed the issue with us which surprised me. Makes me wonder about the cleanliness of other things related to the restaurant. Ambiance was good. The grounds were very appealing. Staff were friendly. Not very busy therefore easy to have a conversation.
Food -$19 burger should not have gristle
-Chowder was tasty but difficult to eat out of the small hot frying pan
- Pizza was tasty
- menu was overpriced
On a chilly evening heaters would be appreciated but the blanket was a nice touch
If you live in the gta it is definitely worth the drive to visit
I have been to Honsberger Estate several times and love everything about it! The food is incredible. I have Celiac and find that I have so many options here (the Mac and Chorizo is gluten free and dynamite!). The patio and grounds are beautiful, and are dog and family friendly. The staff are all lovely and so hospitable; they brought out a high chair for the baby, water for the dog, were attentive and welcoming. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could!!!
We loved the place, it was beautiful and the food wonderful. The only concern, and it is very real is the large dog (the size of a small horse) that almost knocked my husband over. Since he has a broken arm and is already in a lot of pain that would have been a disaster. In fact, having 5 dogs of various sizes running loose amongst the diners was a bit unnerving. One guest had brought their own dog, and they were visibly terrified with all the barking. They had to restrain their pet. While I appreciate the home atmosphere, and I might go back. I suggest a big warning, beware of dogs!!
They have music a number of evenings that would increase the noise but adds to the ambiance.
I’m not sure it was the weather or what but not the usual great fare a
This was absolutely perfect and a good surprise. Our kids are 14 and 11 and they ate every bite and enjoyed the atmosphere.
Great atmosphere!! The prices have gone up a bit which is disappointing but overall great food and service.
Pizzas were good but were burnt. Would not order again for that price
Amazing restaurant with high quality food and wine. My only issue was it took longer than expected to get our entré’s but in the end it was worth the wait! Great service!
I've given 4 stars to food just because there is no separate category for vine. The food was great (one of the best burgers I have ever had, too bad we did not realize the full menu was not available on Sunday - I was looking forward to try the mussels...) Vine is a separate story, personally, I would expect much more for a bottle of vine at $55 price range. The vine was so so (Merlot 2016), I expected more from the vineyard.
Lovely setting, friendly and efficient service. Good variety of items on the menu.
We brought our friends from British Columbia who are foodies...and they loved it all! food, ambience, and the property. Great evening.
Always love getting the change to go to honsberger - can’t wait for the pizza oven to open up again
What a lovely place to have lunch at. The ambience is beautiful, the musicians delightful and food and drink, Amazing! If your ever in the area, this is a MUST to stop and visit.
Such a great experience! Not many restaurants do you get to sit on a couch to eat your meal. So cozy and friendly service. We did wait an hour for our food which was okay because the live music was amazing but we were with 3 kids under 5 and they were getting pretty impatient. Next time I’d go back without kids ...sit back and enjoy. The kids loved visiting all the animals afterwards. The food was incredible !
Service very slow. Food ok but overpriced!
Staff was flustered when large group arrived
Grounds were messy, boxes piled up, tools left out.
Inside door (at horrible looking entrance) was confusing with handle on inside. A few people thought it was locked but you pushed instead of pull.
Waitress lacked common sense and unprofessional appearance.
Won’t go back
We dined there twice for lunch while we were in Niagara in May, first as a couple, then as a group of 7. On the first visit on a weekday the food and the service were OK. Menu was interesting, wine list was poor.
On the next Saturday, they lost the reservation we made by phone a few months before. They offered to set up a table in the adjoining barn. We were then ignored for 30 minutes, and service as so poor during the meal we didn't care anymore if the food was good or not. We will not go back.
Wonderful venue and the food was wonderful! I can see it being a beautiful spot for a wedding.
Maybe, the gift shop area could be a bit larger with some unique items.
Great atmosphere, very welcoming staff and place. We were attended to from beginning to end. Staff were very good with seniors, food sensitivities, attending to special needs and gave constant help, making sure people had what they needed. Our server was extremely patient and we felt very cared for. The entire meal went above and beyond and we all enjoyed what we had. No disappointments whatsoever. Will definitely recommend to friends and family and will return for family functions. GOOD JOB
Love the Atmosphere, temperature, lighting, music, food, service and the overall Design. I am extremely picky with restaurants but with this place I can check all the boxes! Will definitely go again soon!
First let me start with the food was amazing, but the service was terrible, our server took 15mins to come to table to order drinks, we ordered apps and our meals, our meals came out 5 mins after recieving our apps. Why !? And she didnt care she started moving things around to place them down by the time we got to them they were cold. She made us feel rushed will never return or reccommend sorry.
The menu is too limited and does not appeal to most tastes.
I have enjoyed dining here many times for brunch, lunch and at the patio. We enjoyed the fresh bread presented in a cast iron pan, polenta fries, and shared the jerk chicken sandwich. Our meal was spread out and as we waited for the sandwich, we sat by the fireplace on the comfy couch with a glass of wine, enjoying the ambience. Perfection! Our server was friendly and attentive. We left feeling relaxed and satisfied with the dining experience. Our only regret, no room for dessert!
Wonderful dinner with friends with outstanding service. Start to finish a must go too!
Such a lovely winery to visit, amazing food, good wine, and they even have farm animals walking nearby you can go see after dinner! One of my favourite places to go
Our new favorite place to dine! Rustic....quiet.....relaxing atmosphere. Service & food is superb!
I love holiday weekends. I used to be a very traditional family girl. However now I take advantage of doing something a little less traditional. The time I get to spend with my husband and my boys is slim so I like to make the day count if I can. Tonight’s dinner is brought to you by Honsberger Estates. .
You won’t be disappointed! The atmosphere, the service, the food oh my 🤗 Tonight’s menu ... Mussels in a Vietnamese sauce, Calamari Grape Salad and traditional Fish and Chips (because it is Good Friday). Paired with a bottle of Fireside Red from a neighbour Fielding Estates @honsbergerestatewinery @fieldingwinery #lovewherelive #fieldingwinery #fieldingestatewinery #fishandchips #mustgo #instagood #food #wine
It was a great experience for the first time. We were greeted at the front entrance with a smiling face and seated right away.
The server was very knowledgeable of the food and drinks that were available. The only unfortunate part was that the red wine choices were limited.
The lunch was fantastic the food great and the server was very attentive to our party.
Overall very everyone was pleased with their choices and enjoyed the rest of our time at honsberger’s.
We will return.
Really excellent food and service. Very quaint and pleasant atmosphere. Love the place! Highly recommend!!!
The one man band was amazing. So talented and has a varied playlist The ambiance and vibe of this special spot is so incredible. You feel so well cared for and like you have been transported into a magazine because the place is so unique and hip. Servers took amazing care of us and made great suggestions. Owner on site and pops by to welcome
Us. It is our favourite spot. Their sparkling and cab frank were delicious. Can not wait to come back
A great spot for dinner or lunch. Their patio with the pizza oven is a perfect spot to enjoy the outdoor ambiance. The burger is amazing with that kiss of blue cheese. Solid value great tastes. A quaint spot to take a break from your wine tour.
Beautiful Decor, atmosphere and great service. Food was very good and price point was fair. A great place for a gathering of friends
Fabulous as usual. Lunch with the girls, ceasars are like an appetizer with just the amazing garnish. Highly recommend to everyone!
The small barn is beautifully decorated and is very warm and comfortable. The staff are friendly and the chef is accommodating in providing delicious vegan food options. Visiting is always a wonderful experience whether in the small barn or patio.
This was my second time. I came in January with a group of 20 plus women for a friends birthday. The food was incredible! I couldn't wait to come back.
So, for my birthday I had my husband take me. Unpon arriving I was told there were a lot of items not available due to a new menu launch. However the chef called in sick so they were sticking to what was left.
Not sure who the replacement was, but they were not ready for this new resposiblity as the food was terrible. To start I had a pear and blue cheese salad that was underdressed and with very little topping besides the pear. Next I had seared tuna on a bed of spicy greens. The tuna was so over cooked, I needed a steak knife to cut it and it was missing a red sauce.
Next the service. When we arrived there were exactly 10 other people dining (two tables of four and one of two) in the small barn. It took us 2 hours and 40 minutes to have a stater, a main, and coffee with dessert. I had to flag down our server numerous times for items such as salt and pepper, water, a knapkin, a beer for my husband, the dessert list, the bill...etc. Our waitress was so preoccupied talking with staff that I eventually started flagging down a lady that I assume was the dining manager. I'd be surprised if she didn't noticed how neglected our table was.
