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
Fantastic food and service as usual. Chef menu with premium wine matches was terrific. Left feeling fully satisfied.
Fabulous Experience, perfect way to celebrate my Birthday.
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
Excellent 3 course Sunday brunch. Quality of food was top notch. Very good service. Will be back.
Honestly one of the best brunch meals I’ve ever had! The three course menu is amazing. Everything was wonderful. You must go!
Thanks to our Server- Ashley, who made our evening memorable for us and our guests
Absolutely. We enjoyed our meal. We had the 4 course tasting menu with matching wines. Mt wife found the scallop plate a little on the salty side. Otherwise the dinner was great.
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.
Wonderful! We had the 5 course menu, each course was small, but that was perfect and we were totally full by the end. A fabulous experience!
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.
Great time! Was my girlfriends birthday and she really enjoyed herself!
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.
Just have say it was a great experience coupled with a great tour. We had a ball!!
The place is wonderful, the food was great too, but I found it overpriced.
We often eat in high end restaurants, but I found the balance between price and quality leaning heavy towards price...
Staff were nice in general but some not so much. We were with small kids and looked like we were put further away from good spots. Still good experience. The really down side was the price and food. Too expensive for not that mich options
Joanna was absolutely fabulous, she knowledgeable and kind and great with everything! She made our experience here at Trius just memorable! Cant wait to come by again!
It was a birthday lunch and they made it special with a glass of bubbly!
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.
Everything was as good or better than expected. I recommend the sabouring experience for an extra memory.
Celebrated my Moms 81st Birthday. Always a pleasure to dine at Trius. She loved the chefs menu with wine pairing. It was her first time doing that type of experience and she really enjoyed it.
We make reservations at Trius for lunch or dinner everytime we are in the area. The food and service are out of this world.
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.
Very good food, fish excellent, accommodated lactose free and gluten free. Nice touch with sparkling wine toast when we sat down as it was my wife’s birthday.
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.
Our favorite dinner on this year's annual visit to NOTL. We both had the Duck Egg starter and the Halibut, Pasta and Pesto main course. Delicious! Service and ambiance were excellent. We've already recommended Trius to other visitors.
Awesome. Great food, great wines and nice environment .
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.
Not a cheap dinner but worth the price
The view is very pleasant and the food is definitely good. A place to check when in Niagara.
Fantastic view, great staff, and the food is the best in Niagara
Food was expensive but good. Service and ambiance was outstanding.
Excellent food and fun black glass wine pairing, where we had to guess the wine!
To Chef and your staff: whatever sacrifices you had to make in life to get your culinary education...it was all worth it! Beyond food, this was an experience....and well worth it! Thank you!
Beautiful venue to have lunch and start our Niagara-on-the-Lake “weekend”!
The vegetarian option was DELICIOUS. Service was incredible!
Dinner was just as good as the service.
The food was great, and the staff were awesome! It's a beautiful restaurant.
One of our best friend-gatherings at Trius, as usual, we started with Trius white wine & the cheese platter. Of course we did order the pork chop as our main course for the day lunch.
Further to our recent party at Trius for Jolie last month, we always love to dine at this lovely winery either lunch or dinner.
But I wish Trius can go back to the tasting menu as you did in a couple years ago.
