We have been huge fans of the pizza/wine happy hour. Service and food have deteriorated this past year. Beet salad has far been my fav dish but yesterday the beets were rubbery overcooked wrinkled beets. A few pieces of lettuce were very gritty like they had not been washed adequately. The salad as a whole was the worst I have had, tasteless. For the pizza, yes they are larger than before but pretty tasteless. Crust was really really hard to bite through. Service, despite being almost empty, was SLOW. We filled our own wine from the table bottle every time while server chatted with other workers. Pretty much same as the last few times we were there. The service the past three times has been 1 out of 5. Chase was for my hubby and I, our go to late lunch date for years. We have given chance after chance but we have been disappointed for almost 2 years. Not complainers but happy this email review was sent to me because for our over $110 bill yesterday, so unsatisfied with food, service and experience. I understand there was an event as well yesterday but there was plenty if staff just hanging about. No need for us to serve our own wine three times. Also your wait staff LOVES to chat. Their conversations seem to always take precedence over customers.

Thank you Jennifer for the information. I am disappointed to hear we failed you more than once. The culinary team has been working hard on quality consistency. I too love the beet salad. Your comments have been taken seriously. I will be using your comments in upcoming service training as an example of impact as well. I do hope you will try us again as we will be addressing your comments directly. Sincerely, Heather Courtney GM

Taking advantage of Dining Around menu, had a lovely lunch with friends. The dining area feels a shoehorned into the tasting room - I definitely prefer when the outdoor area is accessible during the warmer months. Regardless, the food is consistently excellent and the service attentive. Wonderful presentation.

A lovely, relaxing late lunch the day before Christmas Eve.
Service was friendly and very accommodating. The kitchen even made us some delicious flatbread, outside of Happy Hour, and despite the fact that the pizza oven was not operating!
Thank you!
We’ll be back!

I'm not Canadian.
I ordered "Margherita pizza ".
But it was not " Margherita pizza" we had.
It was burnt.
It was vinegar taste.
Italian parsley was on it, not Basil.

Chef must not know what is the Margherita pizza.

They may think that we don’t know what Margherita pizza is.

Sadly, it was not our best experience at Peak Cellars. Very disappointed in the halibut dish - visually bland, fish overcooked.
One pizza was served which was clearly overdone but the server took it away and replaced it with a much better prepared pizza.
Only one selection for a red wine was disappointing for our visiting guests.

Kudos for the mussels all the same.

Overall, very disappointed.
