A word from Inn on the Twenty
On The Twenty was envisioned as a place where Niagara's food and wine bounty could be presented in an innovative and inspiring way. We aim to deliver freshness and sophistication to meals that will harmonize well with the wines of Cave Spring and its colleagues in this unique wine region. Where possible, we focus on fresh regional produce that our neighbours grow here in Niagara. Our location was decided on by Leonard Pennachetti who, when looking for a building with a great cellar, happened upon the old Jordan Wines building. The building in which the restaurant is located dates back to the 1830s. The addition of the terrace, restaurant, meeting space, gardens, and many retail boutiques have totally changed the character of both the building and this end of historic Jordan Village. All in all, Jordan Village makes a great destination for a day trip, special event, or a romantic getaway. It is our privilege to enjoy Jordan everyday, we would love to share it with you.

    Loved "On the Twenty". Our server (Patty I believe) was fabulous. We loved the fact that the tables were not too close together. The food and the service were excellent. The only negative (and it is a very small negative) would be the scallop appetizer. While it tasted great and the presentation was beautiful I believe they only used one scallop (very thinly sliced). An extra scallop or two would have been nice.

    on the twenty is a destination because it is in the middle of nowhere between Buffalo NY and Toronto or Stratford, Ontario. It sits in a lush escarpment in the Jordan Valley. The food is unique, first rate, and extremely well prepared. We have been there many times, but this time Kathy Fox was our server. She was prompt, funny, very efficient and kind, and just great fun. She had a difficult table next to us and handled it with great aplomb. Also Patty at the desk was extremely good. Their winery, Cave Spring, has some of the best wine anywhere.

    when ordering the scallop appetizer I did not realize that it would be raw and when it came it smelled very fishy (fresh scallops usually don't smell that bad) I did manage to discreetly dispose of them. even less appetizing was the duck breast very under done steak is fine "blue rare" but duck not so much. I just paid the bill and left the food on the plate. perhaps the chef is a cannibal or just was in a rush to get done for the night? Morrie Baylor

    These days it's called a dining experience .Truly good food prepared with skill and knowledge. There's hardly anything beyond okay in this part of Niagara and this is way beyond that. Seasoning enhances not overwhelms, presentation is attractive without architecture, service is appropriately friendly not obsequious. Expensive but not overpriced.

    Dined on 8/18/2014
    It was a sunny Monday and was my aunt's first visit to Niagara. I have been in On the Twenty before and wanted to show her. We ordered 2 lunch specials of pork chop. Th esoup was pear and pear with goat cheese. It was hot and tasty. But the pork chop was so so lean and dry. My aunt is an elderly, she found hard to chew. The other pork chop is very much the same just that I sliced it in to very thin slices. The dessert is a straberry pudding - nothing extraordinary. To me, the food at On the Twenty had deteriated comparing to previous year. I don't think i will go back again.

    The Inn on the Twenty Restaurant was wonderful. Food very good to excellent. The salads and deserts are highlights. The service is wonderful. We had Claire serve us on the first of two dinners. She was professional, fun and attentive. She has been a server at the Inn on Twenty for several years and it shows in her knowledge, attentiveness and fluid service. We also had breakfast at the Inn on the Twenty as we stayed at the Bed and Breakfast of the same name. The service was exceptional and the breakfast which included cold and hot offerings delicious. Thank you Joanne! You are truly a gem!

    My wife surprised me with reservations. It gave us a chance to dressup and make going here, another date night. There is a great variety of choices on the menu and the tastes "mmmmh good". The presentation was exquisite and the birthday candle on my panna cotta was a nice touch. The last notable time we were @ Inn on the Twenty was July 8, 2012...it was the 5 yr Anniversary of my wife's "2nd chance at Life". My wife's life was saved @ LHSC on July 8, 2007 @ 6am, Patty had a liver transplant. Kind regards, Eugene Serwatiak.

    Once again a delicious meal and friendly and attentive service. The asparagus soup was fantastic. The house Riesling matched the pork loin perfectly. Only one (of four) of us left a speck on the plate and that was to be taken home for the next day's lunch. And there was a candle with dessert (not ordered in advance) for the Birthday girl!

    Inn on the Twenty is one of the choices (the other is Vineland) for me to stop for a bite while on the wine route. The food is always good and the wines from Cave Spring are always reliable and fairly priced. My daughter had a lamb loin which was done medium, it was juicy and favourful, the lamb sausage on the side tasted great too. My lunch set comes with a cream of asparagus soup which was light and fit for summer. The pork chop was grilled to perfection with home fries done with duck fat. The dessert pudding was light and not too sweet. Great lunch with great service.

    Dined on 7/26/2014
    We have eaten here many times over the years with delight. This time we were bringing guests there and had raved about dinner. Sadly, our advanced raves didn't meet the reality. The chef seemed to have lost his salt shaker in preparation of most dishes. The soup was so bland each of us had to season it. The ribeyes were cooked correctly but the meat was tough (but cut) and severely under-seasoned. The ambiance is great, but overall not a great experience and likely won't be back anytime soon. Far too big of a bill to be dissatisfied as much as we were. In general a much more senior clientele that night so perhaps they are cooking more to the demographic who prefer less salt and flavour.

    It's been a couple of years since we've visited the Inn on the Twenty. On previous visits we'd been blown away by the quality of the food. Today's offerings were very good, although admittedly not up to our memory. (there were no surprises) Loved the beef carpaccio appetizer; nicely balanced flavours. Wine pairings with each course were excellent. Really enjoyed the mini-cheesecake (with salted caramel) dessert.
