Wellington Court Restaurant + Catering Ratings and Reviews
Great meal at the Wellington Court. One of our favourite places in Niagara. The food is incredible!
Can I leave 10 stars?! Every time we go to Wellington Court EVERYTHING is good. I have never been disappointed. Erik catered my sisters wedding and we will continue to visit when we are in the Niagara Region. A wonderful 20th anniversary dinner for us and our friends.
Always has and Always will be our favourite restaurant! Love Love Love!!!
One of my favourite spots in Niagara. Dale and Erik have a great little restaurant. My brother and I stopped in for lunch....he had the rigatoni, I had the perch. Both were delicious (a tad too much salt on the perch, but nothing to diminish the meal). We both had a microbrew....excellent. Our server was cheerful and attentive. We'll be back!
Service was some what slow, but otherwise food quality was excellent.
Have been going to Wellington Court for many years. As always, the food was delicious & creative and the staff attentive & gracious. We're never disappointed. Only downside, noise level.
Have been a customer over many years. Have had periods of trying new places, as many have
opened in the area, where originally, Wellington Court was one of very few consistently
Came for a special 93rd birthday lunch. Food, service good. Always think, hmmm, should
come more often. Love it, it is a neighbourhood treasure.
The food is always excellent. Staff and the owners are exceptionally diligent. I always enjoy my experience at this establishment and recommend this location to all my clients.
Back within a week! Guess it's great!!!!
We had a very nice evening with friends from out of town. Fix prix menu was very good value. The artic char and local vegetable main was very good
There fore lunch. All of our meals were perfect. Service was great. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Excellent food ! Nice service. Perfect for foodies & poeple looking for a good meal. Highly recommand.
For anniversary. Service was good. Had ribeye steak which was amazing! Good portion and great presentation. Would highly recommend Wellington Court.
Lovely staff, prompt service. We were seated indoors and were not asked if we had a preference. Guests at another table were sharing Facetime on speaker and were very intrusive.
The menu is adequate. My guests had the pickerel and the halibut respectively, while I had the chicken. Both fish dishes were excellent, but the chicken was disappointingly lacking in flavor, with basic sides of roasted onions and potatoes. My salmon tartare appetizer was good, but the delicate salmon was overpowered by the hot pepper.
If one charges big city prices, expectations are high.
Wellington Court is a Niagara gem! Fabulous food, great wine list, amazing staff & the live music on Friday nights in the summer is such a special treat for anyone visiting. 10/10 experience.
Attended this restaurant for a special birthday celebration with a girlfriend. We were served right away, the place was slow and the service was attentive. The food was exceptional, local resourced ingredients and the taste was fabulous. The waitress suggested a wine pairing that was perfect. Always consistently good here but you will not get off with a small bill.
My Daughters College Graduation lunch - the perfect restaurant for a celebratory lunch! Service and food were amazing and they even took us a full hour ahead of our reservation! Well done folks!
Delicious food, great service and a lovely quiet patio.
Pleasant fine dinning.
Nice soft background music.
The Halibut melted in the mouth.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the lunch selections they made, which ranged from pancakes and bacon to fried chicken livers to green eggs and ham. We were surprised and pleased by the large offering of vegan options on the menu. The wine and food prices were very reasonable for an upscale restaurant. The service was a bit slow, but since we were in no rush, it was not an issue.
An outstanding restaurant with fabulous service and food that tantalizes you from beginning to end.
Never been disappointed here!
Our favourite place in Niagara
Beautiful menu , incredible wine, friendly and attentive service. I just love spending time at Wellington❤️
1st time - enjoyed the meal, great service, just a bit pricey.
My wife's meal was good, she said. I had the ribeye, rare. Wrong cut! Very fatty and grisly. The steak was done perfectly but there were two large potato wedges that had been deep-fried and were very oily. The dish was served with all the food items - including a 'salad' heaped on top of the warm meat. Hence, a soggy, partially warm salad, dressed, mixing with oily potato wedges. I give the meal 2.5 stars.
This is the best restaurant in St Catharines. We love the changing, seasonal menu; the quality of the food and the ambiance. The patio in the summer is great too!
The menu is always very creative and fun. The plating is amazing and the the blend of flavors is fantastic! One of our all time favorite places! Great for any time or day! Must try this place if you have not.
Great decor. Attentive service and delicious apps followed by top notch entree's that were generous portions. A definite hidden gem.
This restaurant has been around for quite a long time but this was our first visit. I wish we had gone there sooner. Food and service where fantastic and although it is not inexpensive, the quality makes it fair value for money. It has a very cozy atmosphere he and the staff are knowledgable. We will be back soon......
Fantastic dinner from begging to end will be returning
Dinner at Wellington Court Cafe was outstanding ! The staff , ambiance and especially the food was fantastic ! I would highly recommend !
Succulent prime rib dinner for 2 was perfect for Valentine's Day.
Personal attention by the staff as soon as we arrived was first class and continued throughout the dinner service.
Our starter and entree selections were excellent and very well presented.
The ambiance was relaxing and intimate enough that we could conduct a conversation easily without being concerned about other diners.
Onsite parking was a bonus for a Downtown location
Delicious food and awesome service. Mood was delightful.
We had a casual business dinner with another couple. Weeknight so very quiet. We were seated promptly and waited upon promptly . Our food arrived super quick , was hit and delicious. We had the zucchini Parmesan , the steak and chicken meals. We were all very happy with our delicious choices.
Coffee ( very good ) and dessert trifle and citrus meringue both lovely complimented our meal.
We are looking forward to returning soon!!
Thanks for a wonderful evening!
Great service, nice food!
I have dined at this restaurant for lunch and dinner. I was not satisfied with the luncheon food. The food for dinner was better. I felt that the food at both sittings were over priced.
We were there on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy but the service was excellent. The kitchen uses local products and it is very tasty. We had the paté as an appetizer and it was excellent. For the main we had the venison. Cooked to perfection. The wine list encourages local wineries as all wines come from the region.
It is quite expensive but the quality of the food and the service is outstanding. We will return.
Consistently good food and service. I would like to see a more varied menu but the quality, quantity and taste is excellent
Wonderful atmosphere, incredible dishes, great value for the dinner and experience.
