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.

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!

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
good.

Came for a special 93rd birthday lunch. Food, service good. Always think, hmmm, should
come more often. Love it, it is a neighbourhood treasure.

Thank you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
