Good appointments and fine service. It is worth a visit if you are touring the Niagara Wine Region. The service is as close to faultless as it gets.

Food excellent but with only a few tables it lacked an experience. Lightning too high, staff although super nice didn't know much about wine differences. Maybe just an off night as it's usually a 5 star

This was a first visit on a recommendation from an acquaintance. Although the weather was overcast it did not deter from the scenery and outstanding food. We choose our lunch with wine pairings and our server Rebecca provided excellent description of each pairing. Rebecca was a great host. We will definitely return in early summer on our next visit to Ontario.

This was our third visit to this restaurant and it has never failed to impress. The chef's menu is always varied and innovative. The character and location superb and the views from the restaurant are worth the cost of the meal alone.

I ordered the gnocchi. It was the best plated meal I have ever ordered. Beautiful and colourful. The gnocchi was served on a yellow squash purée with red cherry tomatoes, orange squash chips, crispy green brussel sprouts, creamy sliced Brie, and so much more. Delicious. It was like Disneyland on a plate. We have eaten in many, many Michelin Star restaraunts. This dish could have been served at any of them.

Looked forward to this meal for quite awhile, Vineland Estates Winery is quite amazing when driving up, the buildings set the scene for what was going to be a good meal.........eventually. The failure happened right away, upon entering the restaurant the hostesses have no clue what's going on, severe lack of leadership here from the management. To further make matters worse the lack of confidence grew. When our table wasn't ready which was fine we asked if we could grab a drink at the bar right in front of us. The hostess stumbled and then it took roughly 4 waitresses (no bartender present) to get us a drink menu and order uhhhh wine? Had this been in Toronto we would have left, nuff said, 2 severe initial moves would have had us leave the restaurant but being that we we're in the middle of the winery and had no other reservations we waited till we met our waitress Andrea. Andrea saved the day :-), the 5 course chef meal and wine pairings were incredible and so was the view. Andrea rocked and if it wasn't for her this would have been a great disappointment on what was our 8th anniversary. If Mgmt of Vineland estates is reading this improve your entrance, have confidence and teach this to your staff. Leaders lead, enough said.

Food was average tasting. They served us so fast and we had to ask them to slow down. Shrimp was soggy. Main course beef was tough as nails. Wine paring was very poorly presented. Each time the new wine came when we were half done our course and very little explanation of the wine. I would have though it would have been more professional in execution.

Overall so disappointing and would never come again

It was a quiet night, we had to ask for spoons and more bread twice. The scallop dinner, 2 scallops and 3 tiny bits of sweetbreads was a miss for the price, not much of dinner. Bread was good, trout dish was good.

The food was nothing special. The charcuterie board had so many different unappealing meats which were unfortunately not good. We both had the Gnocchi which was alright, the only problem is that it had too much going on. I had a glass of Merlot with lunch which was again, no big deal. Besides the beautiful view, the food and wine are completely over priced given the flavour, and the presentation doesn’t make up for the lack of simple good ingredients. Too many complex, trying to be fancy garnishes that make the dish taste awful. Keep it simple. I also never received my points for this reservation which is ridiculous, given we were more than on time.

The food is creative, has layers of flavour and textures with each bite. The food presentation makes your mouth water. My dining group and I were there last week and everyone was impressed with the food, so much they all asked when can we come again. We had the opportunity to speak with the chef. He trained at Niagara College, worked in Italy then returned to the Niagara area where he has been the chef at Vineland Estates for many years.
