We had an outstanding meal, everything was delicious. We chose the chef’s 5 course tasting with wine pairings. It wasn’t inexpensive but it worth every penny. Service was phenomenal. A perfect evening.

This restaurant continues to impress. Of all the meals we had in the NOTL region this one was a stand out. The food was just delicious and the wine pairings were spot on. We sat on the patio and watched the day fade into night - very romantic with a beautiful view.

I asked to be seated outdoors and in the shade, and good thing I did cause the view was spectacular! The rolling hills, the freshly cut grass, it was all great.
Audrey our server was very knowledgeable and was always smiling and attentive. Will be back for sure

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.

We've been going to Vineland several times a summer for several years. It's an absolutely gorgeous setting for outdoor dining and the food is excellent! Our only problem with it has been the unusually and consistently long time it takes for the food to be served. Happy to report though that on this visit, even though the restaurant was quite crowded, the food was served in a reasonable period of time and was particularly good. And the staff couldn't have been nicer. We highly recommend Vineland!

Excellent venue overall in a spectacular setting. This was a return visit for us locals , and the staff just does not disappoint. AS pointed out by others, one would think there would be a price consideration for the wine served , however, its not a deal breaker by any stretch . Wait staff was excellent..food was well prepared . Its a great place to come back to !!

This was my second visit and I really enjoy that the menu is not always the same. We were a party of three that were sharing meals to taste a variety of food. They were very accommodating and extremely pleasant

Fabulous food with wines that suited each course. Highly recommend a fixed menu. Pricey, but worth it for a special occasion.

it was a great experience. the only drawback would be on the wine pairing cost. $40 for 3 x 3 oz glasses was a bit steep. especially that it came from the winery, i would have expected a better deal or a bit more in the glass for that price.

Fabulous food, lovely setting outdoors...I loved the ricotta with lemon spread on the delicious bread. The hostess would not give me a paper copy of the menu, but suggested I look at it online. My husband thought that was crummy after spending $400.

The appetizers and main course entries were excellent. Unfortunately, the dessert which was described as cheesecake was disappointing and over priced. A sad ending to an otherwise excellent experience.

This is an amazing winery. However, the dining experience was quite underwhelming. The food was average, at best, but the service could use a lot of improvement.

A last minute spontaneous reservation on our way home to Oakville from Niagara-on-the lake on a Saturday evening was well rewarded. The food was outstanding! Both of our fish appetizers - tuna tartare and grilled scallop with calamari - were gorgeous in presentation, innovative and delicious. The main course of ricotta stuffed pasta on a plentiful bed of wild mushrooms and tender snow peas all cooked to perfection and served hot was absolutely divine. Vineland Estates chardonnay and cab wines by the glass were OK - but we are California wine snobs so the Ontario wines just can't compete! Service was attentive but not over-bearing.

A beautiful setting for an al fresco summer lunch. Classy, team oriented and competent service and top-notch prix fixe menu. The wine pairing was very good and there were no missteps with the food - and the corn bisque had to have been one of the best soups I have ever had. Can't wait to return.

Absolutely gorgeous setting on a lovely summer evening. The creative menu is perhaps the best we have ever had in terms of quality, freshness, and great flavour choices. Each course was thoughtful, very well presented, and delicious. Service was excellent, the wines were very good, and two of them in particular were exceptional. Good value for a tasting menu with reserve pairings. We will certainly return and would definitely recommend.

Everything was lovely but the noise level of construction was terrible on the patio. we felt they could have dispensed with the work over the lunch period.
Other than this all other aspects of our visit were great
