Went with some friends t celebrate my bday. The place is beautiful and the food is amazing. Everyone had a great time!
Steak ordered medium and it was tough, definitely over priced for quality.
Weather perfect for patio dinning
Awesome food and friendly service
Excellent restaurant with superb service, and attention to detail. Food presentation and quality was impeccable. Very friendly staff and extremely accommodating. Will return for sure.
I'm disappointed to write this review: It is a beautiful place & a wonderful setting.
To start, the 1/2 cut lemon for our water, was brown & gone bad at one end.
My $50 steak was the biggest disappointment. It came out lukewarm and cut into slices.
However, the middle of every piece had tendon and large globules of fat. I could not chew it. In fact I could barely cut the already cut pieces! It did not look appetizing.
I asked the waiter what cut of meat is this... he took my plate & went to ask the chief.
He returned 5-7 minutes later & told me it was "grass fed strip steak, therefore it has more fat" I've never seen a strip steak with tendon & fat in the middle of the whole steak. The fat is usually a layer on one side of the meat.
He told me, the chief would not charge me for the steak & would I prefer another entree. Unfortunately, by now I'd lost my appetite.
Always a great experience with a fabulous view!
Excellent food. Beautiful location!
Menu options are sure to please everyone. The wine offerings are plentiful. Be sure to try something new as you can order to purchase a bottle (or two) to take home after your meal from your server without having to go into the shop. A great service, especially when the wine shop closes and no one wants to keep wine in a hot vehicle while they dine.
Had a lovely time. Only complaint is that the staff upon entry could have been more welcolming.
We had a wonderful time! We sat on the patio and it rained heavily. We stayed dry and the staff were very attentive in case we wanted to move. The food was great and the service excellent. This was our first time but we’ll be back!
We have been coming to Vineland for over 20 yrs ... NEVER disappointed in our dining experience, the staff (who are always lovely) ... the store and overall BEAUTIFUL atmosphere!
The current Chef is AMAZING and truly knows how to please the palate!!
We always enjoy our time there and leave very relaxed and satisfied!

Can't say enough. Excellent staff. Delicious food. Wine pairings were right on. The view was breathtaking
We are wine club members never disappointed they continue to exceed my expectations love the experience and wine! Would highly recommend.
Beautiful setting. The food is amazing. Not sure if the service team was understaffed and we were waiting on someone to acknowledge us for over 20 min so we could order a bottle of wine.
Either than this everything was amazing.
Spectacular winery view and truly amazing food, service and wine. Highly recommend
As always Vineland doesn't disappoint!
Sitting on the patio and enjoying the afternoon is one of life's lucky moments.
You feel welcomed and leave happy.
Absolutely excellent as usual.
The food and service are always spot on.
Hands down the best restaurant in the Niagara Peninsula.
As always, an amazing meal and beautiful scenery.
As always everything was amazing!
Awesome celebrated graduation and burthdays
ALL GOOD ... no complaints, we go 3-4 times every year
This was a lovely way to come out of covid isolation. The food was really good, the patio setting was well spaced and the service was first rate.
Beautiful patio, vineyard and delicious food!! Highly recommend.
By far one off out favorite nights out. The people are so friendly, food is unreal every time we go. Never been disappointed yet.
Great wine and food. Amazing views!
Enjoyed the overall experience very much. Was surprised though to see a yoga / meditation class of sorts show up on the lawn in view of some of us dining. Quite different?
What ought to have been the climax was a big disappointment. After a delicious soup and an excellent pasta dish (a plate of Fettucine, beautifully garnished, but $38 for pasta?), the main course -- line-caught halibut at $42 -- arrived. It ought to have been moist and flaky. It was in fact over-cooked, completely dried out, a bit like eating cardboard. No self-respecting chef should let something like this go out of his kitchen. I wish I'd sent it back. I did tell the waiter what we thought, who apologized of course, but that was it. No offer of a complimentary dessert or anything of the kind. I'm local and have dined well here many times over the years. It's a beautiful spot. But this will the last time for me. Niagara has too many fine restaurants that can be counted on.
This has become a staple for us for both for dine in and take out. Food is always great and the scenery beautiful. Staff is friendly and helpful- we are never kept waiting nor rushed
I bit on the expensive side, but delicious food.
Great service and an excellent meal
Price has shot up with the new menu. Yes, understandable but still a little steep. Charging $8.00 for sourdough bread basket (it was a little dry) ... something like this in many 4 or 5 star restaurants would have been complimentary.
Tiny piece of chocolate, fudge brownie for dessert was also too dry.
But, service was quite attentive.

Beautiful setting, attentive service but food was disappointing- halibut was dry and had to be sent back, skirt steak was tough and lacking in flavour- the sort of cut that needs a tenderizing marinade - menu needs rethinking.
The most lovely views in the region. Creative and delicious locally sourced food, great wine and outstanding service. Highly recommend.
The main dish was very salty and he have to request to cook more the steak
