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.

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!!

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.

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.

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.

Nestled on a hilltop in Jordan is this gorgeous winery. Beautiful stone shaped and event centre. And resto with patio. My only gripe was I wish the patio was heated with outdoor propane heaters on a chilly Labor Day weekend night. I had the 5 course meal — tomato gazpacho with crisp prosciutto and chorizo, scallops and smoked salmon frissee salad, duck breast on carbonara pasta with truffle, beef tenderloin and a warm chocolate dessert. All nicely done. And an amouse bouchée of east coast oysters to start. We will be back.

Many years ago I was a regular at Vineland bi weekly Friday or Saturday. The chef then was Mark Picone. It was alway an experience when we would go. Every detail was covered. Mark would on occasion come out and ask how we enjoyed the food. The place was packed and need reservations on weekend. I have returned a few time and the quality has not been to the same level. Although the food was good it wasn’t outstanding. I had the pickerel which was very good. However it was served with dried chorizo sausage. I don’t get it. Vineland always served their dinner with homemade sour dough bread. That is now an extra charge. Service was not great. We had to ask a couple time for our server. It was my wife’s retirement dinner which they acknowledge. Appreciated that. I didn’t care about cost. I want to be dazzled when I go to a higher end restaurant. Atmosphere at Vineland is hard to beat.

I suggest a reinvent.

While this is still our favorite restaurant, since the chef has changed the main course wasn't as we expected. I had the gnocchi and it just had way too many Vegetables with so many different flavours that it didn't blend together as well as I had imagined. Previously all ingredients that chef Parsons included complimented eachother and tasted amazing. This time around it was just too complicated and not very good. The soup and dessert was amazing though

We had a very pleasant lunch outside on the terrace. On a hot sunny day it was nice to have a choice of shade or sun.

The pork belly appetizer was excellent, the duck confit was good, but the key lime tart was tasteless. Good service and a nice view.

Everything was great for our dinner, my wife and I have been there before but this time we brought our kids for the experience. The views are fabulous and the waitress also added to the experience as she was very helpful with choosing our meals and made good recommendations. The food and wine were also excellent and the overall experience was good considering it had just rained out and the storm passed so we were able to sit outside. To add to the ambience they had live entertainment during the dinner, a very nice touch.

Interesting mix of ingredients on my appetizer and main course. With pork belly + mussels (???) and with my lake pickerel + a piece of chorizo sausage (???). Looked forward to my key lime cheesecake for dessert but disappointed to see it 'garnished' with a side of definitely previously frozen strawberries (no local berries in mid-summer?). Wine pairings were a great match.

Surprised at the toughness of my steak. I should have sent it back. Everything else, however was top notch but with a limited menu and the prices you would expect your steak would be exceptional.....tender at least.

Took our friends from Iowa to experience a winery lunch and we were extremely pleased with the whole experience. They were very impressed with the ambiance, food, service. Scenery, shop and of course the quality of wine served with our food as we decided to do pairing. Service was excellent. We will go back and tell our friends as well.
