We enjoyed an amazing dining experience including wine pairings and delicious menu. The chef, Justin, has created a wonderful, tasty experience for all to enjoy. Vineland Estates Winery is majestic and overlooks the manicured vineyards. Truly a wonderful experience that we will enjoy again very soon.

Great birthday lunch in a wonderful setting on a balmy July day. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty. The patio overlooking vineyards and the blue of the lake were intoxicating as was the bubbly and the bottle of red. Well done!!

Something has changed at Vineland and not for the better. We have dined here many times but this time did not measure up to our expectations based on previous visits. Perhaps they have a new chef? The wait staff was also not up to par. Very disappointing considering we drove for 3 and half hours for lunch.

One of the most beautiful settings to dine - overlooking the vineyards and Lake Ontario. Food exquisitely prepared and full of flavour. Service was attentive and knowledgeable. The wine pairings were perfect. All in all a wonderful experience. I highly recommend the Restaurant at Vineland Estates.

We have been to Vineland Estates Winery Restaurant in the past and we were very ,
much looking forward to another gourmet wine-paired meal. Ufortunately we were very disappointed. The appetizers were good, both of our main entrees although beautifully presented were not flavourful and were cold. Dessert equally was lovely to look at but nothing unusual regarding flavour. It appears all emphasize was placed on presentation and not food quality. Although this location was always part of our stops, next time we will be visiting other venues instead. Disappointed.

Annoying music piped to patio completely destroying the ambiance until turned down to merely annoying after several requests. Excellent wine, of course. Good menu selection. Prompt, cheerful and polite service.

We love this restaurant and return every year for a birthday celebration. The setting is outstanding, with a magnificent view of vineyards and Lake Ontario. Excellent service too. We just wish that they would change the menu. We have seen many of the same items year after year.

The 3 course menu was well worth it. Unfortunately our order for dessert was lost so we had to wait a bit but without even having to ask for it we were offered icewine with the dessert. So the overall experience was great.

The best dining experience you will ever have is here at Vineland. We keep coming back for the creative dishes prepared by Chef Justin. The wine pairings are superb. The food presentation is unique, the servers are excellent, and you are overlooking the vineyard - they leave nothing to chance.

We chose Vineland Restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had dined there last year and wanted to return.
We made reservations through Open Table.
When we arrived we were warmly greeted and given the option of dining alfresco. We chose to eat inside as the weather was unsettled. We were seated at a lovely window table. Immediately we were offered a choice of water. Shortly thereafter our waiter Nigel arrived, explained the menu and the Chefs Creative Menu.
Bread along with oil and balsamic vinegar arrived as did an amuse Boucher of an oyster on a half shell.
We both chose the Chefs Creative Menu which consisted of 5 courses: cream of Asparagus Soup, Shrimp and Strawberry salad, Linguini Carbonara, Grilked Steak with Sweatbread au Jus and finished with Strawberry Yogurt Cheesecake.each of the 5 courses was beautifully presented and explained and were delicious. They were also nicely spaced out with time to eat and savour each course.
We were very pleased with the service and the meal.

Great restaurant, chard board and cheese board are top. Table d'hôte way too salty. Like so over the top salty that what would have been 5 star food experience dropped down to 2.

Shame.

The food was delicious and quite creative! The recent renovations to the outside deck are quite good looking and the view of the surrounding vineyards is, as always, one of the best on the Niagara Peninsula.

However, service is still quite slow. This has been a problem for years, although it has improved a little bit.

The lunch at the Vineland Estates Winery Restaurant was very good in lovely surroundings, reminiscent of the Napa Valley. The food was very good and the Vineland Sauvignon Blanc was also very good. Lunch was enjoyable. Better value than many other Niagara winery restaurants.

OUTSTANDING AS ALWAYS
I’ve never had a bad dish here, almost always go for the 5 Course feature which is out of this world, and always different.
The Chef certainly knows how to use many ingredients in one dish, but achieves the perfect balance so you can taste all of the flavours equally.
Your taste buds will come alive!!

Fantastic view, location and ambience. Food was phenomenal - fresh, balanced and creative - and such an amazing value for a high-end lunch (3 course meal for $39). Only drawback was that the food took a little long to be served. Would definitely return with no hesitation.
