We really went to see the band so were disappointed to be put in a back room away from the band. Other than that, excellent!

Absolutely beautiful atmosphere and delicious food and wine. I had the lamb sausage with a glass of their Flora white wine and it was very tasty. Note that the kitchen closes at 5pm (although if you show up at 4:59, they will seat you and serve you food - very accommodating!) and there is only exterior seating, so it's more of a lunch/late afternoon wine and light meal place than a supper spot.

Cold & wet ,outside tent with sides that leaked water into the tent( on the ground not above). probably do much better with ambience in good weather.
Food was nice but expensive for what you received ( individual pizzas , limited ingredients ,unfortunate because taste was nice but skimpy for price)$155 people/pizzas and 2 desserts
Server and greeter very nice/ accommodating

Table booked weeks in advance but still not seated under the tent. Two types of beer available, not many cocktails and not a fan of the wines. Split a pizza with water and went elsewhere.

Such a beautiful location. The tent can be a little cold as you’re not in the sun and the wind still comes in under. I’d recommend requesting a table not under the tent in your booking! But overall amazing lunch with a breathtaking view and accommodating friendly staff!

We enjoyed our visit. The venue was very nice and service excellent,
All 4 of us ordered different pizza. Our response was the same for all, and that was the toppings were very skimpy, as if the kitchen was trying to save money. The pizza was good though.
We ordered the chocolate cake (cheesecake?) for desert. We all thought it was absolutely wonderful considering there were 2 chocolate lovers.

Have been here on three occasions now with a recent birthday celebration for a friend. We ordered various dishes from the new light bites menu, all of which were delicious. Loved the chick pea, scallop and ravioli selections. Our group tried three different desserts and polished off all of them. Wine choices were fabulous as expected in a Vineyard with nice local beers. A fabulous location decorated with a huge Xmas tree in foyer.

The lunch menu features a selection of small plates that are excellent for sharing and tasting a variety of foods. Lightfoot & Wolfville wine is the mainstay of the beverage list along with local craft beer. The staff are friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. I would highly recommend Lightfoot & Wolfville for young couples, travelers and lovers of great food and wine.

Lightfoot & Wolfville is our favourite place to go in the Valley. Their pizza crust is amazing (get the garlic fingers!) and worth the drive up from Halifax. Such a beautiful spot with super friendly staff.

The food was very good. The downside was that the service was not great and it took 1.25 hours to get pizza to our table. I wouldn’t say they were exceptionally busy either. Just took a while and our server was not the best.

Unfortunately we did not stay dinner at the winery. That evening was cool and the heaters were broken. Rather than move guests to the comfort of an indoor space, we were asked to huddle, shivering under shared blankets in the huge tent. The tables were set far apart and there was no ambience to speak of. A huge disappointment- we left!

Excellent experience. Final stop at the end of a beautiful day and they did not disappoint. Welcoming atmosphere with live music and giant fireplace. Flight of wines poured by the knowledgeable winemaker. Ended the evening with sunset over the Blomidon cliffs eating on the open patio. Enjoyed the Chardonnay and seafood chowder. Very friendly staff even brought out Nova Scotian tartan blankets. They made it a complete experience. We will definelty return.
