Ambience is what makes this place. The patio was quaint and the views beautiful. Food was average. Didn’t leave thinking it was one of my best meals. Service was good. Wish that for a winery restaurant they used proper stemware, rather than stemless. It’s fitting for the pizza patio, but less so for the restaurant. We have come for the pizza oven several times, always wanted to dine at the full restaurant, now that we have we’ll likely stick to the pizza.

We returned to Ravine after an excellent experience a few years ago and wished we hadn’t. It’s gone downhill on all counts. The menu is no longer interesting and the food service is appalling. We waited about half an hour to get our order taken and then close to an hour between appetizer and Mains. Little apology and no reason given. Plus the food was mediocre. We won’t return. Too many other Niagara options.

We waited a long time for main course however waiter was awesome - our cheese plate and tomatoe plate got delivered by someone other than our waiter who did not describe the varieties of cheese or tomato - our waiter when asked did - we did enjoy our lunch though and sorry we were late

An excellent dining experience with superb wait staff. Food was inspired and beautifully presented. I would not recommend their Riesling wine, however.

Service was amazing- prompt, courteous, friendly, and efficient. Beautiful view of the vineyards. Food was incredible, the cheese tray was a little skimpy, but delicious. We split the tomato salad and were too full for dessert. Wine was lovely. A little pricey. A great experience and for sure, we'll go back.

We had a marvelous anniversary celebration at Ravine. Riley and Cheryl were most attentive and
the suggested 'Bubbly' and oysters were perfect. Our only other comment as everyone was aware
of our special day was that dessert was not 'on the house'. It seemed to us that last year when we
went on the same day it was gratis!

Ravine is always THE REASON we go to Niagara on the Lake for a day/weekend trip. The food and service is always outstanding! We have had Cheryl a few times as our server and her service is always outstanding! We will be back again to check out your fall menu (like always!)

The staff in the tasting room is always friendly and knowledgeable. I didn’t get his name, but he helped me pick out my favourite Cabernet Franc after giving me a few tastings of similar reds.

The food was tasty but not quite worth the expensive price in our opinion. Unfortunately, we were not greeted warmly. We arrived through the accessible entrance as we had a baby stroller, we were ignored a couple of times by the server responsible for the Patio. She then said "there's someone inside" in an annoyed tone... We went in and were seated outside. The location was gorgeous and everything seemed to go well, until we had realized it has been more than 20 minutes and no one had come to serve us or even offer us water. We had a young child with us who was getting quite hungry and antsy. We were quite close to just getting up to go. A server appeared from inside and said "There seemed to have been a mix-up, sorry!" She joked "not my fault though! Haha" we ordered with her. She then proceeded to give our order to the server on the patio who had been ignoring us. I heard her say very clearly "well no one told me they were in my section"... There were only two other seated tables outside and then us... At least check to see why you've walked by us so many times and not seen anyone come take our order or at least offer us water on a hot day. The person whom we can only assume was the House Manager at the time did come out and apologize for the wait and offered to take care of our drinks. We appreciated the gesture. However, the patio server continued to be somewhat rude and treat us quite differently than her other tables. I'm not sure why she felt she could just be rude, but in my opinion as our server she is the face of the company and therefore now we have a marred experience of the Ravine Winery Restaurant. If it weren't for her, we would have written a glowing review as everything else was excellent! Hopefully she can learn from that experience and improve upon her customer service skills.

Highly recommend. Great food, service and ambiance. There is an outdoor area with the sameness me u as inside. Beautiful views wherever you sit. There is also a second outdoor area with more casual menu. We started outside then it started raining. They were quick to engage a roof over top yhe eating area. Eventually we moved inside due to sideways wind and they were extremely accommodating. Seems they have a back up area inside to hold the outdoor section. Wine was great, lemon curd desert outstanding! Five stars all around .

I've been to Ravine 2 or 3 times. The food is the real star at this restaurant. Quality is extremely high, and closely matched by presentation. Even with the football game on the TV in the bar (go Steelers!), the restaurant is still very appropriate for close conversation with friends and family. We'll definitely be back.

A midweek visit with family; the kitchen does not disappoint, always fresh, always seasonal, always something new – sitting just on the edge of the vines makes this one of the best VQA dining experiences to be had in my opinion.

Recently visited the Ravine restaurant for lunch. Lunch was just okay for me. The charcuterie was very good but the burger was not okay. It did not taste good at all. Service was just okay. For two people, lunch was $100 plus.

Excellent quality, great and friendly service, great wines from the vineyard. Excellent bang-for-buck ratio. Do not pay more at any restaurant in NOTL Old Town. Go there instead. Scallops with sweetbreads were mind blowing.

Brought two visitors from Tampa Bay Florida to Niagara Falls and the wine region. The service was impeccable, food was great and all well prepared and flavourful. We enjoyed the cheese and charcuterie plates to share and were pleased that all the charcuterie was cured in house.

Wines were tasty and reasonably priced. Honestly I swear by this place whenever I bring international guests.

We are a local couple that eats out a lot so we have sampled most of the area restaurants. At Ravine the food was good and our waitress was friendly. The hostess was not very nice and it ruined our experience. With so many great restaurants in the area we will spend our money elsewhere and not go back to Ravine.

this is the place we celebrate our Anniversary Unfortunately this time around there was a loud couple that everyone heard their conversation which did not make the experience as nice.
Also the food was not as good as we have had in the past, not sure if it was because this is the busiest we have ever experienced..but it needed a little more something 🤔. Should have done the pizza bar instead. Which was cheaper and nicer once we went outside to listen to music.

There are many restaurants and wineries you can go to in niagara region. One of the best is Ravine vineyards and restaurant
Setting is delightful food is superb and service is second to none.
If you have time visit their barrel basement below the main building.
We can't wait to go back and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Be sure to reserve a table as during the Summer there can be long lines and demands
