Went for the Valentine’s Day menu and I’m at a loss. I just can’t properly describe how utterly fantastic the food is. The creativity and flavours that literally tingle the palate are beyond description. Easily the best restaurant around. I’ve been all over the world and I’ve said this about Vineland estates many times while I’m eating the meal “if I’ve had a better meal in my lifetime, I can’t remember it being better than this.” The chef George Ward is Picasso.

This restaurant does not disappoint. Everything we have is always fantastic. The tasting menu is creative, fun and delicious. Been twice this month and can’t wait to come back. Beautifully plated meals that look like a work of art, that taste twice as good. Need to visit at least once and then you will be back again and again.

We come to the area for a wine trip every February and we always eat at Vineland on Thursday evening. We always get the Chef's menu and wine pairing and find it to be a wonderful experience every time. Its one of my favorite spots and I look forward to it all year long.

Thoroughly enjoyable experience at the Vineland winery restaurant. I was pleased that they allowed only one of us to order the Tasting Menu, which was a great way to try five menu items. Excellent plating and presentation but more importantly, truly delicious tastes and textures.

Shared a charcuterie platter, mussels (in white wine sauce), grilled calamari, sorbets, and spiced pumpkin mousse amongst four people. Every single dish was fantastic. Would absolutely recommend.

We very much enjoyed our anniversary lunch. It was excellent and our server, Andrea, was attentive and courteous. We would certainly go again and refer the restaurant to friends and family.

Service was excellent, Andrea and Autumn were attentive but gave you space to enjoy the dining experience. Food was amazing, the celery soup was deliciously creamy, Ahi tuna was beautifully rare and tasty, the lamb was very tender and flavourful. The chocolate pate dessert was decadent! And the presentation of each the dishes was very well done and appetizing. I highly recommend including the wine pairings. The taste of the wine changed for the better, with the dish it was served with and complimented it very well. The view would be lovely when the sun is up. The price point is high but certainly is a treat to enjoy.

Excellent meal. Lots of fun. Worth every mile we took to get here.

Food is always first class and never dissatisfied.

Spend a few dollars more for the vintage wines. A world of difference.

Service great, food overpriced, table next to a 50 person baptism party so noisy. Would expect it to be a better experience normally but bad timing. Toilet in woman’s bathroom wouldn’t flush and no running water to wash hands. No one at front desk to notify. Overall beautiful building but have had much better lunch experiences.

Our recent visit to Vineland Estates was to celebrate a birthday lunch with my close friend and it didn't disappoint! We loved the choices on the set menu and added fresh oysters to start. Our choices included the beet salad, calamari, duck entree, 16 hr Chuck, parsnip cake and chocolate torte. Everything was nicely presented and we really enjoyed the mix of flavors and textures ( oh my goodness, the fried chicken skin! Lol) With a lovely view of the autumn vineyard, a crisp rose and an off dry gewurztraminer to sip, it was a wonderful way to mark my friend's birthday. Definitely excellent value and worth a return visit!

We picked the perfect autumn day to enjoy this restaurant. From the large expanse of windows, we were able to take in the beautiful color-change of the grapes vines in early November. There was a little harvesting still going on, so that was fun to watch too. Our lunch was very good and we enjoyed the wine pairing with each course. As the menu and prices are set, the choices are somewhat limited. The dishes were seasonal, expertly prepared - and delicious. If there were more choices, I would have given this 5 stars.
