The food is creative, has layers of flavour and textures with each bite. The food presentation makes your mouth water. My dining group and I were there last week and everyone was impressed with the food, so much they all asked when can we come again. We had the opportunity to speak with the chef. He trained at Niagara College, worked in Italy then returned to the Niagara area where he has been the chef at Vineland Estates for many years.

From the setting, to the service (thanks Todd), to the exceptional food and wine, Vineland puts on the works. It’s probably one of the best meals you’ll have out in the Niagara region, if not Toronto. I brought my parents from New Zealand here, and we didn’t want to leave. I don’t think there’s an item on the menu that you can go wrong with...and the brownie for dessert is not to be missed. Thank you team, I look forward to visiting again very soon.

We have loved this restaurant in the past, but this time around we felt that the food on the tasting menu was not as inspired as meals we have had in the past. For the amount of money it costs, we expect more and were very disappointed. We even wondered if it was a different chef. Our bus girl was either new or distracted in some way as she forgot to replenish silverware several times. She did take care of the problem quickly as soon as she was made aware of the situation.

I did very much like the new patio set up.

If we return, we will probably choice from the a la cart menu.

We are from the area and was told by someone from Thunderbay Ontario about this restaurant . The food was amazing ! Service setting and location was above and beyond our waiter was phenomenal . This is his 12th year at the winery so what does that say about this place!! Definitely can’t wait to go back!!!!

We have been coming back to Vineland for lunch every year we come to the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake. It is reliable and pleasant. Service is efficient, friendly without being intrusive. This year, we all found our food to have been overly salted. Meals were delicious but could have done with quite a bit less salt. Apart from this, it was our usual fine dining experience.

Fantastic meal for all 4 in our party. The lunch table d'hote menu offered lovely choices and was reasonably priced. Each plate was scrumptious and the presentation of the food was spot on. They have a stunning view of the vineyards, estate and in the distance Lake Ontario. Our server Etan was super pleasant and knowledgeable about the food. We'd highly recommend stopping here when you are in the Twenty Valley wine region. ( we also recommend the wines in the Twenty Valley wine region!!)

We traveled from London for lunch with friends because we wanted to introduce them to our favorite restaurant. The experience was great and they loved it. The only difference we noticed compared to all prior visits was a lower level of attention to service. For example, our server in past would always explain the dish once brought to the table. I find that to be a nice compliment because the dishes are so beautifully prepared we sometimes forget exactly what was noted on the menu. Our guests had to ask what was in their meal ( looked like pepper), it was Olive dust. Having said that, service was outstanding as usually, just thought I would offer a suggestion for a more complete experience. Thanks,

While we enjoyed a wonderful meal with excellent service, the ambiance was disturbed by the bird bangers in the vineyards and the fruit flies in the dining room. I understand this is a necessary byproduct of grape farming, however, I will be sure to avoid the restaurant at this time of year in the future.

This was easily one of the top three meals we've ever had in Canada. We had the Chef's Tasting Menu with the Reserve Wine Pairings - highly recommend it! The service was exceptional as well, and the view of the vineyard is gorgeous and romantic. My note on the noise level is not in regard to the restaurant itself but the faux gunshots used to scare away the birds from the vineyard.. if ongoing loud "gunshots" would disrupt your eating experience, don't dine there during the day or when the windows are open.

We love this restaurant, my husband and me. I rated almost everything 5 stars but the food. Actually, there is nothing to complain about the test, the presentation... but, personally I"d prefer less creamy taste or, at list one choice for vegetarians, healthy stile, preference. Something from millennials menu. If you keep in mind that is an authentic restaurant (I did not :) ) then...there we go..5 stars.

Spending a weekend away from the big city. Our server Karissa definitely took care of us this evening. She took the time to explain the entire creative menu along with all the wine pairings. I would definitely recommend this to anyone coming to Niagara-on-the-Lake.
