Fantastic experience for myself and my fiancée. We enjoyed the light background music, the open patio and pergola, the beautiful gardens, and delicious food. The wine pairings were perfect too. We would love to come back next time we're in the area!

Great, friendly service. Food was amazing. We had a pomeranian dog as part of our group, we were accommodated in the picnic bench area which had a very VIP feel!

This is one of our favorite places to take visitors when they come looking to visit wine Country! This is our go to lunch stop, all year round, but especially in the summer. The patio seating has you sitting right out in the gardens with the vineyards to one side and the peach orchard to the other. How can you not love that!

You would never guess you are just off the highway....you can’t hear the traffic at all.

Everyone is so amazing and the wonderful owner Nicolette is almost always around to welcome you

Their farm to table menu is always changing so it is a new adventure every time. The food is always great and the wines are nice (and not too pricy). You can count on them to have a vegan dish on the menu and the za’s from the wood fires oven make me wish I could eat gluten and dairy.

In the past we have thoroughly enjoyed the good earth. This time, not so much. The menu seemed to feature quite heavy foods. We had the hamburger, which was tough, and had enough French fries for three people/.

This is the first time I've had a disappointing experience at Good Earth. The food was excellent as always (for the most part) but 3 of us were almost finished before the fourth got his meal. When it arrived, the fish was a bit undercooked and I would have returned it but he said it was 'ok'. The winds were high on the outside patio and when they slowed the flies were awful. Negative comments about a $26 hamburger were tossed about. I recommended this place and they were not impressed. With no discussion at all, Good Earth made up for it by comping the fish meal which went a long way to appease. However, I don't believe our friends will ever go back.

Outstanding atmosphere, very good food. Service was good but not excellent, I think just because they were busy and it was a long weekend. They all seemed very tired but did keep a smile on their face and were attentive.

I will go back for sure.

Still a great spot...food is well prepared ...the service has improved immensely ....friendly and fast but leisurely enough allowing you to take in the venue at your pace. Always worth the trip!

3 women out for lunch. We ate outside, had excellent service. We all loved our choices. I did find the salmon I had quite salty so didn’t finish it but the salad that came with it was excellent. I would definitely go again.

We have been at this place last summer few times and we liked it very much, so we have tried this Year again a month ago, we did not liked it, then since they changed a menu ones in a few month we decided to go again and we were disappointed again, the burger was dry and not good at all, the steak was a 4 pieces and too salty, and it is very overpriced, so I would not recommend this place

I booked a reservation at Good Earth for my Seventh Wedding anniversary. My wife and I were so happy with the service and the food is outstanding. Our waiter gave us a few recommendations and they were perfect. There was also young man playing the guitar in the background made our experience that much better. We will defiantly go back many times.

The food was absolutely amazing and the prices were very reasonable, but the service was very pushy and I actually felt shamed by them. I assume they wanted me to get wine and dessert so they would have a bigger tip, but I was driving and a dessert at home that I made. I've never had service that made me so uncomfortable before, I would love to go back but I'm not happy with how I was treated

We spent the afternoon visiting the Niagara wineries and enjoying the beauty of the region then finished the day at Good Earth. The environment is absolutely stunning, it’s like being nestled in an English country garden and then surrounded by vineyard and peach trees. The servers were all very professional and the food was delicious. Most of the menu felt very fresh and inspired, while along a general modern Canadian theme. All in all it is a delightful place to have a date or a family meal.

My wife and I arrived early for our lunch reservation and were immediately seated in the covered outdoor patio, a real pretty setting, surrounded by peach trees and grape vines. Service was very good and very friendly. Unfortunately, I cant say the same thing about their wines, a house Rose and Riesling. Very tart wines, closer to wine vinegar than dinner wines. My wife mentioned this to our server and he immediately replaced her Rose with a sweeter wine, still not the greatest but better than the Rose.
We both ordered the Steak Frite for our main course. My wife’s was tender and tasty, mine was very tough and stringy - could not chew it and it was cooked to medium rare, so obviously not over-cooked. I mentioned it to our server and he offered to replace it for a new dinner of my choice. By the time my replacement dinner arrived, my wife was finished eating. The replacement dinner was only marginally better (tender) than the original.

Not a good eating experience. Unfortunately, when the bill came I was still charged full price for this experience. Not likely that we will be returning to The Good Earth Bistro for another meal. Too many other good wineries in the region to take a chance with this one.
