We have been going to Trius Restaurant for 20 yrs and have never been disappointed. They make a special occasion even more special. Staff are attentive and the food and wine are fantastic.

Truly an outstanding dinner in beautiful Niagara wine country. We chose to dine inside last Saturday night as it was extremely hot out but next time will try for the patio. Our meal was extraordinary and Jennifer our server was excellent! The menu and dishes are not only delicious, the presentation of the food is truly a work of art! Wow is all I can say and we will definitely return. We both had the tomato salad for starters, followed by the ribeye steak for myself and the lamb for my husband. So flavourful and the presentation of the food so beautiful. Looking forward to coming back for dinner in September.
Thanks again to Jennifer for making our anniversary so special and to the chef for his incredible creations!

We had an amazing time! I had a friend from Australia and she just loved it, she had 3 courses and wine parings and just couldn’t believe it! Brad, Michaela, and Taka were fabulous the knowledge all three of them had about the food and wine was just incredible!

Reservation easy. Food was good. Caesar salad great loved the dressing. We sheared steak which was good but it would be better if it was served on hot plates. It was my birthday but did not get any cake like I would in many other restaurants.
We were hoping for quiet evening but once restaurant filled it became roudy.
I have to mention our waiter very loud and disturbing laugh. Annoying

Made a reservation for the patio, got there 10 mins before and was told that the patio is full. The hostess says, go have a drink at the bar and we will call you in 20 to 30 mins. 40 Mins later, no call, I head back over to the restaurant and to my surprise I see her seating other parties on the patio. When I asked why wasn't I called, she very rudely responded, I told you to come back. This went on for about 5 to 7 mins before we were finally seated at the patio. IF I were to score the winery on this ONE interaction, they would for sure be the worst place I've visited.

The saving grace for them, our server, Jennifer was very pleasant, she even addressed the issue with the hostess. She provided best in-class service and not because of our poor experience at the start, I could see her giving the same great service to other patrons.

Cons - terrible hostess
Pros - great food, great servers, great space

I had the tasting menu and at $75 I think it was well worth it. I have been there before and will continue to return every year when we go to the Shaw Festival. The dining room is beautiful in a contemporary style which is a nice change for NOTL.

Amazing experience. I took my husband for some relaxation and this place was the perfect place. Enjoyed everything from the surrounding to food and to excellent service. Chris was our server and he delivered. He made us felt very comfortable and welcomed. The other food served were very impressive also. It is always nice that everyone are knowledgeable of the menu.

Went with a group. We usually look forward to dining at Trius for something “different” and interesting. However the quality/taste of the food amongst our group on this visit did not seem to meet our expectations based on our dining experiences in the past.

We enjoyed a 3-course brunch on the patio overlooking the vineyards. The food was exceptional and the presentation was impressive. The girl who served us was helpful and attentive. All in all it took 2-hours and I felt the price was fair given that I felt thoroughly spoiled.

We picked Trius based on some online reviews. Everything was OK but we were expecting a much higher experience. Service was fine but not outstanding, they never brought us bread as we saw everyone else got a basket of bread as soon as they sat down. Nice Cesar salad but not fantastic. We both ordered the rib eye on the menu. Asked for medium rare and got medium well. OK steak but I was expecting outstanding for $60 a plate. We ordered a bottle of wine from the wine list turns out they didn't have it anymore. It is a winery, why is the wine list not updated?? So all in all wasn't bad but for the price it should have been great. With so many other options in the area we would try a different place next time.

The food was good, but I was expecting better since the restaurant came highly recommended. The waitress had attitude. Table scraps were left on the table throughout the meal. The restaurant was not even half full yet the tables were filled next to each other so there was no privacy in conversation. If it were busier that would not have been an issue. The Winery Tour and Tasting was Excellent. I would recommend it more for the Winery.

The patio at Trius is THE place to be on a nice summer day. The food is outstanding and the service superb. We were fortunate to be under one of the large umbrellas which provided a wonderful shady spot on a sunny afternoon. This is one of our favorite outings when we make the drive from Toronto to Niagara-on-the-Lake. We’d never miss it.

The menu was well explained, both the "Pairing menu" and the regular one. The staff were friendly, informative and attentive.
I chose this restaurant because my partner does not like meat and has a hard time finding a meal that isn't just something she can eat.
From the start they were very open to accommodating whatever she desired.
In her words, "I've never had a tofu meal cooked anywhere, including my own, anywhere as good as this!"
I had the lamb and all aspects of it were amazing.
Mission accomplished.

Not a cheap dinner but worth the price
