Had eaten there before and brought guests this past weekend. We all very much enjoyed the evening. The service was attentive and friendly, the food was fantastic. I had the bouillabaisse, my husband had the pork chop and our friends had the pasta and the trout. Thank you Peninsula Ridge.

We stopped for a family lunch before beginning a journey. We each ordered something different and all were delighted with the choices made. The chef's special was a hit as were the pizza and wrap. I ordered the mussels and as always they were a true taste treat. It was a hot day, but we chose to sit on the patio for the amazing view. The staff made sure that our water glasses were always filled. At this restaurant, they have that perfect balance of ensuring that you are well looked after without intruding. Despite the fact that everything is made from scratch, there was little waiting for each course. It was the perfect way to begin a journey. Thank you to the amazing chef and serving staff. Every trip here is perfect.

Don't know if I would recommend. Had brunch there two Sundays in a row. First Sunday, June 23, was good, except for the faux pas of the waitress, but was then corrected by taking the bottle of wine off our bill. Also pizza crust was tough, and the toppings just average. Would never order it again.

June 30: My burger was terrible and contained hard little pieces in it that looked like bone chips. Went with the same folks who were there on the 23 of June. They ordered the same as they had the week before but said it wasn't as good and would not go back.

Outdoor patio is a beautiful setting.

Went for some wine tasting first. Used this time to decide what we were going to have with our meal. Had the charcuterie for one. Excellent for two people saving for main. My wife had the Filet, perfectly done with fresh local vegetables. I had the Boulliabase, delicious. Recommend this establishment to everyone.

Every visit to this treasure of a restaurant is a special occasion. Whether dining inside this Victorian Manor with wonderful views of the lake over the vineyards from the second story window, or on the patio behind the house, it is a delight experience. Service is is excellent, menu varied and food delicious.

Beautiful day encouraged us to eat on patio. Gorgeous view and wonderful service made for a perfect afternoon.
Small problem with mussels was noted by server (without us mentioning it) and rectified without any discussion. Very
Impressive. Food was beautifully prepared and presented. First class in every way.

My husband, daughter and myself had a wonderful dinner at the restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere was wonderful. A beautiful setting overlooking the vineyard and a view of Lake Ontario. Not crowded. Just the right amount of tables and chairs on the patio. A beautiful evening with perfect weather.

My wife and I visit Peninsula Ridge once a year, as part of our season at Shaw Festival. The meal and experience was fantastic, and we are reevaluating our schedule. I expect we'll come back before the end of the summer; probably August or September.
The service was perfect, and the food (as always) was delicious.

We had a lovely brunch for Father’s Day. The place is a lovely old home with spectacular views from the upper level of the Toronto skyline.

The service was warm, welcoming and attentive.

The food is limited in choice but there is something for everyone.

Unfortunately my quiche was barely Luke warm. I sent it back and it came back pretty much the same temperature and was watery and rubbery.

We went to Peninsula Ridge winery for a Father’s Day Brunch! We had a lovely table on the 2nd floor. However the windows were so dirty you could not see out to see the view. Service was wonderful as was the food. It was not a typical buffet brunch, you order of the menu. Without tip it was $137.00 dollars! We had a peameal sandwich and salad, dessert that was too frozen to enjoy. Attention to detail was absent. Disappointing!

Absolutely beautiful meal. The courses took a while to hit the table, but we enjoyed having time to chat with eachother as we waited for food. The quality of the food was impeccable and our server was attentive to empty glasses, bread baskets, and dishes. It was a casual fine dining experience that my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed. We ordered one Ceasar salad, Penne Pasta, and Beef tenderloin with 2 glasses of wine and a soda for around $150 CAD after the tip. Not a cheap place to eat, but each bite was worth it. A perfect spot for a special occasion, but be sure to request a room upstairs in the window looking out the front!

It was our first time at the Peninsula Ridge restaurant and we plan on returning for many more visits. Our server Tracey was outstanding and offered suggestion to meet the needs of my girlfriend who is a vegan. The quality of the food was great and as Tracey suggested , we will make a special request prior to our visit for a vegan dish. The whole team of servers were very friendly and made us feel at home.

Everything was outstanding and it made my birthday that much more special. My only issue which is could be more of a preference for myself was that the rosti potato on the lamb sirloin dish seemed uncooked. It was definitely raw in the middle though and not crunchy on the outside.

You cannot fault the location,ambiance,customer service and attention to detail. The panoramic view was second to non. It is in fact idyllic. When we arrived we were seated promptly in a wonderfully secluded window bay. A perfect start to date night. Sadly,The main course was disappointing for both of us. The starters were great and generous portions but the main course,both of us had different choices, was too many competing flavours and textures and so it didn’t really work. The skirt steak was very chewy and the chicken was also chewy but less so than the steak. We will go back when the menu changes as the place is stunning and we were fortunate to be serenaded by the frogs singing in the rain. You don’t get that everyday.

We have been there 3 times before, had a wonderful experience, and since it was my husbands 65th birthday, we decided that is where we wanted to dine. The appetizer of mussels was very tasty, would definitely recommend. The mains, (the specials of the day), no! My vegetable frittata had the texture of a small sponge, and had absolutely no flavor. I almost wanted to ask for ketchup. The side salad was fresh and nicely dressed. My husbands beef ragout was appetizer size. It consisted of two bite size pieces of very fatty beef, potatoes and gravy. Will not be returning.
