We open the end of May and run until the end of October. We have weddings every weekend, so our patio is not open for dinner on those days. Some Fridays we don't have weddings we will be open for dinner or have events. Please call the restaurant for larger parties and events at 905-562-4339 (ext 2). You can call for reservations or go through our website and book online on Open Table. During our high traffic season, we request you follow our turn times: 1-2 guests is an hour and a half, 3-6 guests is 2 hours, 7 and more is 3 hours. We want everyone to have a wonderful dining experience and we look forward to serving all Summer on the patio.

This is my second time using Open Table for Honsberger Estate and both times I enjoyed both the reservation experience and the dining experience.
This time my six guests and I all had only superlative comments to make.
I highly recommend this venue and the booking/reservation format.

2nd time here... both times were phenomenal. The food is amazing and Honsberger's award-winning wines are worth the price tag. The atmosphere is 2nd to none.

My wife and I visited Honsberger on the recommendation from my sister in law... They did not disappoint! We had one of the most relaxing, enjoyable dinners that we have ever experienced. And the musician was a pleasant surprise. The pizza from the wood fired oven was amazing. Definitely a five star rating in every aspect!

What a hidden gem! So glad I finally got to check out this winery. The views and the patio is such a beautiful set up! The food was very good and we enjoyed the truffle mushroom cheese pizza. This place is very kid friendly and our girls really enjoyed the place. Overall, I would go again and try something else on the menu!

We had a reservation for six people but ended up having seven people with us. They were more than happy to accommodate us. The grounds there are very nice and the retractable awning was put to use as we had a brief rain shower. The menu is not huge but a good variety as there is something for everyone. Great selection of wines and a few beer choices for non wine drinkers. Service was awesome and overall a great evening

We love this spot. Went again on a beautiful evening with another couple. Food, service and the atmosphere are excellent. One of many Niagara region gems (from Grimsby to the Jordan valley).

Although my food was good, my friend's rice ball, another's hamburger and the "peach" (but really apricot) salad were underwhelming. Wish we had walked a bit further in as the interior patio was nicer than where we sat - which was breezy, alternating between too cold and too hot.

This was our first time at Honsberger and definitely won't be our last. It was like walking into a secret garden! The service was excellent. Our waitress was attentive and friendly, the food was terrific! The entertainment just made the night. Thank you!

We were visiting the Niagara region and came for the outdoor dining experience. It may have been the perfect evening weather we had which made this experience so amazing, but the fantastic mushroom pizza helped a lot too! Their estate wine was also very good and there was also a wonderful guitarist which added to the ambiance. I cant emphasize enough how fantastic our experience was!!!

Wonderful afternoon. Busy but understandable given the season and location. So it was a bit noisier than anticipated and a little less relaxing than it usually is. Love love love this place. The mussels were awesome but i should have asked for a spoon. The broth was delicious

We were greeted by a friendly staff member and shown to a nice table. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable about the Honsberger wine selection and we chose a very excellent CabFranc, we bought some more when we left. We had the Steak frites which was excellent and cooked as ordered. And another had the pickerel which was also excellent.

My husband and I have been going to Honsberger Estate for about a year now and have always enjoyed the food, the ambience and the music. The service is usually excellent. This time, we went with my sister-in-law and a friend of hers, who are not wine drinkers but enjoy a good meal. My husband and I shared a pizza which was delicious, as always. The other two in our party both ordered the steak which, at $33, is the most expensive thing on the menu. While her friend's steak was tender and juicy, my sister-in-law's steak was tough and chewy with lots of gristle. She unfortunately refused to complain about it, due in part to the fact that we waited over an hour for our meal and she didn't want to have to wait AGAIN. She put in down to just "a bad piece of meat" and shrugged it off. All in all, we enjoyed being there together but I'm not sure I would recommend the steak!

Sehr schöne gepflegte Terrasse. Sehr freundlicher, liebenswürdiger, aber bei unserem Besuch völlig überforderter Service. Tolle Livemusik. Das Essen war an diesem Abend leider nicht gut. Muscheln schmeckten teilweise fischig, Die Pizza aus dem Holzofen war versalzen und mit zum Teil stark verbranntem Knoblauch , der den gesamten Geschmack dominierte, gewürzt, Gemüse war z. Teil angebrannt und der Fisch sehr trocken. Die Beilage, das Couscous, wurde ohne Ankündigung durch noch mehr ( verbranntes)Gemüse ersetzt, da mein Mann keine Zwiebeln isst.
Vielleicht hatten wir an diesem Abend einfach Pech mit der Qualität des Essen, denn offensichtlich ist das Lokal sehr beliebt.
Das Ambiente ist wirklich wunderschön, und deshalb werden wir auch gerne nochmal hingehen, man muss nur gut aufpassen, was man zu essen bestellt :-)

Everything was good, but since the patio is in an outdoor treed area it is a good idea to put on some bug spray if you have bare feet or legs.. low flying ankle biters!

We’ve been to Honsberger two times. First time was good. Such a sweet place, live music, yummy food.
Although a few things on their menu were no longer available when it came time for us to order. No big deal.
We liked it so much, we came back as a family this past Friday. It wasn’t busy, but there was a large group in, so all of the servers were working hard to serve them. Therefore our food was very backed up.
I received my meal, which was not very good, sorry to say. ( it was the ciabatta chicken sandwich), and was finished before my kids and hubby received their pizza. Drinks were also not replenished until much later.
It’s sad. We really want to love this place, but....it was not a good experience.

In 2018 we stopped for lunch at Honsberger Estate and really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. This year we decided to stop for dinner on our yearly tour around the Niagara wine region and we were not disappointed. Again the atmosphere and food are exceptional with live music that added to the overall enjoyment. The staff is very friendly and attentive providing excellent suggestions for our drinks and meal (try the lemonade). My wife and I would highly recommend a stop at Honsberger Estate for a real taste of the region.
