Food was AMAZING!!
Delicious tasting. Well seasoned. Perfectly cooked.
Not disappointed with chef’s menu and serving and to add to the occasion sun was shining. Beautiful Autumn day at a beautiful location and wonderful lunch.
My husband and I have been eating at Vineland on our annual trip to Canada for many years. In the past the food and service were always exceptional. This year was disappointing. We had an average meal with average service. ..the only exceptional thing was the cost. The best parts of the meal were the wine, bread, and soup. The fish entree was overcooked and not paired well with the other foods on the plate. The chocolate mousse had an odd texture. We had a birthday in our party which was noted on our reservation, but it was ignored by the staff. Unfortunately, this is the last time we will choose to visit this restaurant.
The evening started with us waiting for our table. We were told it would likely be only 5-10 minutes. Most establishments would offer a drink if you wait more than ten minutes , we waited 40 minutes.
The duck confit was not crispy but the other dishes were very good.
We had a gift card and are very happy that we experienced coming to Vineland Estates. It was lovely.
Chef George was spectacular !!
Everything was perfect!
Saturday lunch with a group of six. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Overall, food was good. I had the Lake Erie pickerel- the fillets were tasty but small and thin, more like Perch than Pickerel. Was hoping for thicker white and flaky flesh.
We forgot how good it is
Knowledge servers gave good suggestions on wine pairings. Beautiful presentation of food which tasted amazing! Food combinations delighted all areas of the palette. Our greatest compliments to the chef and staff!
I have had several lunches at Vineland but for some reason this time was most memorable. The fact that on September 30 we could eat outside helped, but the food just seemed to have been executed at a higher level than on previous visits. Excellent service added to the experience. Wonderful afternoon. My mom (whose birthday we were celebrating) can’t stop raving about the pork-belly appetizer and duck confit main. Great O’Leary Chard was an excellent pairing.
It was a wonderful experience as usual. I think we will make it a traditional dining experience going forward on our wedding anniversary.
Vineland once again met our high expectations
Food surprised us as did the cab.franc bo-peek. The Chef had really done as well. Unfortunately our table faced the parking lot.
Spectacular meal and service and my friend’s birthday was made so special with the sparkling wine and dessert with happy birthday written in! Love it!
Food and wine pairings here were absolutely fantastic. Almost every single pairing was spot on. A bit pricey but if you are looking for a treat, strongly recommend this place, their food and wine.
We went for our 5 year anniversary and I can’t speak highly enough about the experience. The view was beautiful, the staff were incredibly personable and the food was top drawer.
Overall value poor
Soup ordered was well over priced and no “kick” put some flavour into the serving. The charcuterie board was not what your diners should Expect. Very little variety and quantity non existent Compare with other quality restaurants. This is simply a sampling of what the charcuterie board should be
Sorry but I will not return
We had an absolutely wonderful lunch, sipping wine and enjoying the most magnificent view...does it get any better.
It was good experience. The food is very multicultural with variety. It had different types of meat you like, beef, pork belly, fish and a vegan i believe. So there is options for a great lunch experience with the nature view.
The food was extremely good, the service was friendly and efficient, and the terrace location was great on a warm summer evening. Small quibble that having every dish explained in detail when placed on the table was unnecessary, and offering “cocktails” only to discover that the bar was not fully stocked was a little annoying (although the quality of the sparking wine then offered as an aperitif did mitigate this)
Thank you to John for our tour and Tees for all her work in setting our our reservation to a night we’ll never forget. It was awesome!
It was an exquisite day for my husband and I and our two friends. We started with wine tasting with John (who is so knowledgeable and a lot of fun) and then we had lunch. We sat outside because the weather was perfect. Our meals were absolutely delicious and the service was perfect. It is a lovely dining spot and the food is truly amazing.
Delightful ambience on the deck overlooking vineyards and the lake. Excellent service - made us feel welcome & appreciated. Food & wine beautifully presented, cuisine delicious, wine superb, good value. Highly recommended!
This was by far the most memorable and enjoyable lunch we've had in the Niagara-on-the-Lake vicinity. From the moment we arrived until the moment we departed, it was pure perfection! Their attention to detail and service, the cuisine, the wine, and view are unparalleled! We cannot wait to return!
As usual.. beautiful food and patio!
Although we found lunch a bit pricey, the food was delicious and beautifully presented. We had excellent service as we were allowed to take our time and visit with our friends.
The cheese board was excellent and beautifully served. However, we both found that our mains were too clever-by-half. For example, there didn't need to be chorizo sausage added to my wife's Pickerel dish which would easily stand on its own. As well, I thought it a lapse when we had to ask for cutlery twice in a restaurant that charges top-end prices. A good start here but some work still to do.
Having lunch here was the perfect way to celebrate my birthday! It had been many years since we had last visited this winery. It was first class then and it is still first class now. Sat on the comfortable deck overlooking the lovely vineyards with a view of Lake Ontario in the distance. The service was faultless and the food was amazing. Of course, the wine was excellent.
Not often does one experience the elusive integration of genuine, engaging hospitality, savory cuisine and an iconic wine country dining circumstance.
Service was not good , we had a platter to share with food basket extra .. the meats were so salty and the bread was just a sesame sliced .. definitely nothing special and the noise from the bangs to scare the birds was constant .. very disappointed!!
We came for a Birthday dinner - everything was amazing. I NEVER write reviews; but just to say that the team was awesome and the food was terrific. Compliments all around!
I will not visit your restaurant again.My wife and I were celebrating our 65th wedding anniversary,with our family and chose your restaurant.This was a very bad choice.My wife had the duck which she did not care for,my son-in-law had flank steak which was not of acceptable quality and he did not finish and , I had pickerel,which was badly overcooked and came with a large mound of beans. The cost of this meal was $400+ and it was not money well spent.I certainly will not recommend your restaurant to anyone and suggest a change of staff may be required urgently.

The location is a morsel of beauty for the eyes. The food and service are exceptional.
Superb Red Pepper soup, great pairings, everyone enjoyed the mains. The reduction and barbecued corn with the flank steak was perfectly done. Of course the wine pairings were also great. A dependable restaurant for any occasion.
Was simply amazing. Had the 5 course dinner with wine pairing: simply exquisite. Had dinner on the terrace overlooking the vineyards and Lake Ontario in the distance at sunset. A moment to remember. Highly recommend.
Amazing experience. The restaurant has beautiful view to the vineyard. Food was excellent. Definetely would return.
We dined early on Sunday evening and had the chef's five-course menu. The food was fabulous as was the wine pairing. The staff were friendly and helpful. It's a wonderful location and great restaurant.
Outstanding restaurant in a heavenly location.
Book a table on the outside deck and enjoy the massive green fields all around, the quietness and the super delicious food.
Every year I make sure to go to this winery and restaurant at least once.
My family was celebrating my parents' 32nd anniversary. Everyone was very satisfied with the food and service. Food tasted delicious, plating was beautiful, and portions generous. Thank you!
