From the moment we entered the restaurant area, we were impressed and it only got better as the luncheon continued. Simple but elegant gold spheres which hang from the ceiling add to a lovely ambiance. Wonderful menu selection - we opted for the scallops appetizer, which was seared to perfection. As the main course, we had the braised lamb shanks, tender and delectable. Our server, Joanna, was professional and provided excellent customer service. We were treated to a complimentary sparkling wine in honour of my friend's birthday - how classy! Well done, everyone at Trius!!! We will be back when we are in the area again.

Enjoyed the butternut squash soup as an appetizer. It was so yummy, my only comment is that I thought the portion size was small. I had the Halibut for my entree. Also delicious!

On Sunday the restaurant provides a 3 course meal for a very reasonable price. Food v good and great service.
Only suggestion is to give clients the opportunity to order a la cart in case they don’t want 3 course meal.
Overall we definitely suggest this place!

We waited 30 min after being on time for our restervation, we were given a free glass of wine though. Food was very good, but not mind blowing. Our server was incredible and although it was night and little could be seen, the grounds seemed very cute, would love to go back for lunch for the full effect.

The food was amazing. Every course on the tasting menu was delectable, especially the beef ribeye, which was comparable to wagyu which melts in your mouth yet not as fatty. The dishes were made with high quality ingredients. Love everything and will definitely recommend Trius to all our friends. We will return for sure! Our server was Cherina. She did a great job explaining everything and was very genuine. Her excellent service made our already superb meal even more memorable.

The food - from presentation to taste was superb. Lovely, imaginative dishes were on offer. We were a table of three and we all enjoyed the dishes we chose. Even their salad was deconstructed and presented in such a beautiful manner. Our server was also very knowledgeable and attentive without being all over us. And the setting is so very pretty and overlooking the vineyards lends itself to a very relaxing environment.
My only suggestion for improvement would be with the front door hosting staff. The restaurant had many empty tables, including many tables empty on the patio - but the gentleman on the front desk acted harried and was turning disappointed people away. These tables stayed empty during our entire almost 1.5 hours at the restaurant and there were too many to put down to missed reservations. He just didn't seem very accommodating plus his attitude was on the snobby side. But overall, our dining experience was such a joy and we can't wait until we're able to sample the cuisine of such a talented kitchen again. I would ideally give 4.5 stars if option available.

Absolutely excellent meal, with great service and a fantastic menu. They will suggest wines for each course which is a great way to taste the local wines. Timely but not rushed service. Lovely ambience. It is expensive but for that special occasion it is ideal. I last went 15 years ago and it has not disappointed this time. We would highly recommend Trius.

My boyfriend and I took a tour of Trius Winery for our anniversary. We booked a reservation for Trius Restaurant as well. The restaurant itself was nicely decorated and organized. We sat at a table by the window with a nice view of the winery. Our server Brad was polite and friendly, we enjoyed his service. Our food was delicious, particularly the Hero’s plate, so many wonderful options. Our entrees (the halibut and the falafel cakes) were wonderful as well. All in all, a happy anniversary dinner, thank you Trius and Brad!

We had lunch with a small group to celebrate a birthday and were treated to sparkling wine to start and a special dessert (with sparkler!) for the birthday girl. The food was very good, as was the service, and we enjoyed the ambiance which was conducive to conversation. Would highly recommend for a special occasion.

Two of us and two friends came for dinner as we had done a couple of years ago. The food and wine were great and we were seated in the dining room because it was too cool to sit outside. It was quite noisy (a table of six younger people were next to us) and while their conversation was not overly loud it did affect our ability to converse. Last time we were there we were outside on the patio and it was much better.
Overall, the experience was very good and our waitress was excellent.

I didn´t know that Niagara on the Lake was a wine area until we drive nearby. When we arrived at the restaurant, we had a very good impression. It looks very sophisticate, but the service was so kind and gentil that we felt totally comfortable.
the food. The starters were delicious, well presented and very unique.
The main course, however, wasn´t big enough to share, at least when you have more men on the table... The only disappointment was the fish & chips. although it wasn´t "dry", the aspect and taste didn´t please. No problem; next time we will choose another course and it will be perfect, for sure!

I think the bread with your wine butter was a good start. the salad was not what I expected two little bites should be more we waited quite a while for our next main when I got the main their was basically meat one little potato very little sides it needs more vegetables more substance potatoes savor to balance out the food experience.We order Ed desert received an icecream bar with some blueberries it did not taste any different than a Chapman's ice cream bar.l paid over 200.00 with tip you asked me that's my opinion thanks Roger 🇨🇦

We dine at Trius almost every time we visit NOTL, which is about 4 times per year. Typically, a great meal is a standard expectation which is why we visit so consistently. Unfortunately, this was the first experience we had which just wasn’t good. Overall, the service was fine, but the food was not. The menu has become way too heavy on eggs (a top everything) and goat cheese (which I can’t stand). I ordered the steak with a horseradish popover. At $60 per plate I expected to have it cooked as requested which was medium-well. The steak arrived “grey” well done, bone hard and flavorless. The popover, supposedly horseradish infused, was full of goat cheese which was not listed on the menu. Our server was kind enough to remove the dish from our final bill, but that experience left me disappointed overall.
