We really enjoyed our service and our meal. Very creative dishes, the desert was beautiful and creative. Oysters were fabulous. Will definitely return and recommend to others. Our server was lovely. I believe her name was Lisa .. I could be wrong. She worked there for 5yrs, brunette with cool white glasses. She was attentive but not over bearing and she knew the menu and restaurant very well. Thanks for a great evening!

On entry, we heard a customer shouting at the bar. It was noisy. We had a lovely table overlooking the vineyard. We ordered from the fixed price menu. I found the selections limited - halibut, partridge, hog, beef and marrow bone, and pasta.
I chose the fish. ( I don’t eat pork. The marrow sounded unhealthy. ) My fish was served in turkey broth with strips of turkey. I found the combination bizarre. Although the fish was good it was not complimented visually or through taste.
The dessert I chose was a chocolate mousse. The chef had thrown so much sea salt on the food, I could not eat half. It was not done with care for the diner.
Our server was lovely and attentive.
The meal for me was disappointing.

Surprisingly good. I booked this on OpenTable and didn’t think anything of it until I showed up for my meal. It is kind of out in the country. The appearance of the restaurant is very casual on one side and elegant on the other. Service was very good. The food was outstanding. I had the oysters, ceviche and beef tritips. Very well prepared.
The wine was much better than I expected. I will eat here again definitely.

We had an excellent meal taking advantage of the fixed price 3 course menu. All 4 of us we extremely pleased with our selections and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Conversation was easy to hold as the noise level was quiet and the wait staff didn't interrupt us while being attentive to our needs.

Our only issue was that on an off-night (Monday in April) we couldn't reserve a table at 7:00 PM. Which given the restaurant was 1/2 full (and we showed up at 7 anyway), was curious.

This has been our go to restaurant at Niagara wine country for almost 10 years. It is sad to see both the menu and quality of food has deteriorated over time. Now the views has gone as well - a big wedding tent in a poured concrete destroyed the garden and vineyard looks. On the food front fries on burger plate was burnt and reheated dessert looked liked dropped and reassembled. But as always service staff was friendly and wonderful.

We were very disappointed on our visit. We did not order wine with our lunch. Probably a big mistake. Maybe we would have received better service. My husband ordered a hamburger and it arrived with fries. We didn’t know it came with a side and the waitress never asked fries or salad. My husband doesn’t do fries, and would have preferred a salad. Just the tone and body language of our waitress was very uncomfortable. We will not be returning.

Ravine has always been a favourite but the last couple of visits have been disappointing. I had left a note with my booking on OpenTable that one member of our party was vegan and I also called the restaurant. They said they did not receive the note but assured me that they have vegan guests all the time and that the chef would be able to make something to please. When we arrived, the waitress did not know that there was a vegan in the group. She went through the menu and basically said you can have 2 options with the dairy or meat removed. I mentioned that I was told that the chef could also make something according to what was in the kitchen. The waitress went to ask and came back and offered a pasta dish. When the soup came there was chorizo sausage on the crouton and the dessert had meringue. I was embarrassed as I had promised that there would be vegan options for this one person in the party. I feel that the restaurant needs to get with the times. There are more and more people eating a plant based diet and the new Canada Food Guide even stresses the importance. Times are changing and I would hope that Ravine takes the more progressive road.

Went for an early dinner before a play. Good soup and salad. 3 course promo meal was good but not great. Ordered beef medium rare and it came out medium to medium well. The duck confit terrine was outstanding as was the panna cotta. Service started out well but deteriorated as the restaurant got busy.
We used to think the restaurant was one of the best in the area but the last couple of years, it has not been what it once was. We dine here 6+ times every year but will not go as often in the future.

the main course also, salad basically plain just splashed with vinegar - not eatable......

It was unfortunate that we were seated beside a table with children who were on loud tablets throughout the lunch. Parents should be providing earbuds if they are not willing to have the children simply enjoy lunch with them. Most disturbing to all seated around them. Obviously not something the restaurant can really control in these times of complete expecting tolerance to everything.
Hopefully our next visit will be as expected.

I would definitely recommend this Winery Restaurant, I already have. The food was amazing for all four of us, the service was fantastic and the winery itself with its separate building for tasting and their "grocery" section is quite charming. My only comment I would make was the noise level was more then I expected for a refined winery setting. It's not the restaurants/management doing by any means, and it could have just been the date we went, but we found there were several larger groups seated through the restaurant who seemed to be overly loud, so it made talking with our friends a little on the challenging side. We will be back (we are 272 Wine Club members), and we'll be sure to continue to bring our friends and family there.

Even in the off-season Ravine vinyard is a hive of hungry hustling. Make a reservation in advance, because eating delicious food with beautiful vinyard scenery all around (especially on the patio in the summer!) os not something you want to miss. Go for a tasting next door before you dine.

The restaurant has a warm and welcoming ambiance which adds to the dining experience. We can't wait to return in the summer time to enjoy another fabulous meal, this time on the patio.

I hope to always loooove Ravine but we had a significant issue with one of our friends who has severe allergies nearly being served food she’s is deathly allergic to. The server made us aware of the allergen before she ate it, however it wasn’t until our friend burst into tears (she was genuinely sacred about the near-miss) and I spoke with the staff multiple times before I could help them understand that our friend had to eat something beyond just "a green salad." It was odd to me that they couldn’t simply prepare a burger or even just eggs without issue while our friend sat there helpless as they were unwilling to prepare anything she wasn’t allergic to? I finally convinced them to prepare a steak off the dinner menu. I find it hard to believe you have never had a guest with life-threatening allergies and being such a fabulous high-end restaurant, aren’t equipped to serve guests with allergies.
