My sister and I loved not only the ambience but the comfort look and feel of the restaurant. Loved the food and also enjoyed the wine. We'll go there again for sure.

We stopped in for the Surf and Turf special ( runs from Feb to mid April). We had 4 different orders in regards to how our meat was prepared and the chef nailed all four. The meat and lobster were outstanding. Anna, our server, did a great job, she made us feel relaxed and at home. This is our second time there with different servers and both were great. We will be back in the summer for some patio dinning!!

We had an amazing dining experience. The service by Tracey was outstanding. The presentation was food for the eyes and the flavours were incredible. Everyone’s meal was cooked to perfection. All courses arrived in a timely manner and yet it was relaxed atmosphere. It couldn’t have been better,

What a wonderful experience! For my milestone birthday, I had out of towners come to have lunch with me. The food, service and ambience were all fantastic and we sat for 3 hours visiting (the room was nearly empty in late afternoon) and no one seemed to mind. Special sparkler in my dessert for my birthday but no huge embarrassing to-do. It’s pricy but well worth it for a special occasion.

We ate here a year ago and the food quality seemed to be so much better! Our server was proficient but I felt rushed at the end. She mentioned that that day was her last before vacation. I had the daily pasta which was ok, the cheese board was the best of the lunch experience. The lavender crepe brûlée was tasty as well.

The only disappointment is that the place is outdated in it’s colour and decoration. Outside needs repair....wood is rotting-obvious from where we were sitting. I guess when I pay $115 for lunch I expect you to spend some of that money on maintenance.

Initial seating downstairs on the main floor as staff were set up for main floor dining.
Being a repeat customer, asked if seating was available on the second floor (intimate dining with incredible view). Staff went out of their way to accommodate our request. Extremely impressed!!!!!
From starter to desert, delicious!!!!!
Winter mid week Surf and Turf special incredible value!!!!
Will be back soon.

We dined at Peninsula Ridge during the Steak and Lobster special ($29.00) When we were ordering, it was brought to our attention that there was also another option.....Surf and Surf. We assumed that they were both the same price, however, when the bill arrived the Surf and Surf was $45. I think that should have been mentioned when the dish was described at the ordering stage.
Other than that, we had a lovely meal.

We were there for Sunday brunch. The scone was one of the best I’ve ever had. However, in all places that serve proper scones, they are served traditionally with cream (whipped). Not so at Peninsula Ridge. Disappointing! The frittata I ordered was bland, dry, over cooked and hard to cut through. Very bad. The salad served with the frittata was delightful. I also ordered a hit chocolate and could not taste any chocolate. It tasted like hot milk. This is my first bad experience at Peninsula Ridge.

Been back several times since the first time for lunch on patio a few years back. Have introduced several other people to this wonderful spot and extremely great food.
service was wonderful though a little rushed even though we mentioned we were in no rush whatsoever. Look forward to their summer version of mussels with bee pollen. Delicious. Definitely a keeper.

We waited what appeared a long time between courses. The food was good despite not pleantiful but quite pricey. First time our family of four ate a three course meal and there was not a spec left on any of the plates. This was our third visit despite a consistant feeling when lesving... good food but small portions and quite pricey.

A memorable dining experience, celebrating our 50th. Anniversary at Penninsula Ridge. My only disappointment was the fact that when I made the reservation, I indicated we were celebrating our 50th.
I thought we might have been presented with a glass of sparkling wine or even a dessert on the house. We even told our waitress we were celebrating our special anniversary. I guess it isn’t their policy. So many restaurants do acknowledge special events in some small way.
Wonderful food, wine and service and we will eat there again. We wer given a lovely table at the front of the foyer overlooking the vineyards and the lake.
