Peller Estates Winery Restaurant
A beautiful and well-keptA beautiful and well-kept space with great views of the countryside through ample large windows provides for a quiet and comfortable dining experience. It is obvious the staff and chefs pay attention to details. The food is excellent fine dining, as is the service, and pricing reflects the upscale experience.12/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always spectacularThe food is always spectacular here, and our dinner last week was no exception. We went specifically for the five-course tasting menu, which is discounted $30 per person through the end of Mar. We added the wine pairings with each course. The food was amazing, and the wine pairings all worked well. Sadly, they really needed one or two more servers on duty the night we were there, as service suffered. We have come to expect perfection at this restaurant, and we didn't get it this time, at least not in the service department. That will not deter us from going back.12/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAn evening of excellenceWe both had the 5 course chef selection along with the paired wines. The presentation of the food was excellent. We both rated the meal as good as some of the best restaurants in Toronto.
The only negative and one which should be taken into account especially if choosing the 7 course plus wine is the amount of alcohol consumed.11/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Great Wine, willGreat Food, Great Wine, will be back for a return visit soon11/3/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the 4-Course TastingEnjoyed the 4-Course Tasting Menu. Everything was excellent.7/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOver looking the vineyardWhat a beautiful way to enjoy well prepared and presented food. Well done but not over done. The wine pairings always interesting even if you find only one wine you really like, they all go with the meal. Well designed and elegant events.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was perfect. FourEverything was perfect. Four of us selected the five course chef's choice menu with wine pairings. Diner lasted three hours and we all thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The serving staff was attentive and knowledgeable without being pretentious. The wine pairings were selected from the top end of the Peller offerings and were ideal matches to the food courses.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMawesomeReally really enjoyed everything that was provided for us at Peller. Service, food and ambiance were awesome.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner and wine pairingDid the five course meal with wine pairing and it was an excellent choice. Every dish was excellent and even the wine. Definitely would return. Did a wine tasting before dinner and decided to buy some wine to take home.

The food was fantastic, and service went above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable. Great time overall.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM25th Birthday CelebrationWe enjoyed a wonderful family celebration at Peller.
A day of winery tours and tastings followed by dinner at Peller.
The food and in particular the plating was excellent.
Our service was first class.
What a lovely way to celebrate our daughters 25th birthday !!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways greatMy wife and I eat at Peller 2 or 3 times/year and we always are very pleased and impressed. The food quality and presentation is always excellent. Innovative combinations and ingredients, for example they used some black garlic in a beautiful game bird soup. This was our first taste of black garlic and it is wonderful. In addition, Peller's wines are outstanding and award winning. With our main course we had a Pinot Noir that was perfect. If you like a particular wine that you have with your dinner, you can ask them to put a bottle or 2 on your bill and take them home (we like this style of "wine tasting"). Also, great service and view out over the vineyards help to make for a perfect evening.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional Dining ExperienceThis restaurant has it all, exceptional food thanks to Chef Jason Parsons, attentive and caring staff, beautiful view of the vineyards and hills beyond. Whether a gathering of family, good friends or a romantic evening out, I highly recommend this venue!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experienceWe took our good friends there as they had not been before. We all loved our lunch. I had the trout which was perfect. Weather was cool so we sat indoors and the dining room is beautiful. service was great. Highly recommend.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb Winery RestaurantMy husband a I had a wonderful brunch at Peller Estates Winery--excellent service, free harvest wine was a nice touch, and beautiful scenery inside and out. Great food, too!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceVisited Peller for dinner on a girls weekend trip. Everything was fantastic. Our waiter was one of the best waiters I've ever had & the food was wonderful. Everything about this place was enjoyable!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOn your Bucket ListIf you have a bucket list of the greatest dining experiences in the world this should be on it! The 7 course tasting menu "Chef" tastes the wine and then pairs the food to compliment it, as opposed to everywhere else doing it the other way around. On the Patio overlooking the vineyards it's nearly impossible to imagine a better experience. The waiter deserves a 5 for service, but a couple of his assistants could use more training. (one spilled the soup and we had to ask to have it cleaned) but I've brought groups here and dined as a couple when service was impeccable. Restaurant critics would do well to leave NYC, Paris and LA and visit Peller Estates and Chez Francois on the River in Vermillion, Ohio. Definitely two not to be missed!.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous experience, as usual.Fabulous experience, as usual. Wait staff were exceptionally accommodating particularly with special dietary needs. Extra "treats" were presented as we were celebrating 2 birthdays, which was a wonderful surprise.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAn epicurean delight!What a lovely place in which to enjoy a memorable meal! The wait staff were efficient and friendly, making our amazing meal even more enjoyable. The presentations were works of art; the wines paired with our 5-course tasting were delicious -- all in all, this is a place to visit on a special occasion for an elegant combination of food, drink, and ambiance.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA Memorable MealMy husband and I were visiting from Calgary and decided to try Peller Estates' restaurant after seeing favourable reviews online. It was a truly memorable meal! We ordered 7 courses with wine pairings, and each dish was more impressive than the last. Every bite was amazing! Thanks for a wonderful experience -- we will be back!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticMy wife and I were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary and started off our weekend getaway with lunch at the Peller Estates restaurant. This was our second visit and like the first, we were absolutely delighted with the quality of the food and service.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AM4 course tasting menuFood in general tasted very good. I enjoyed every course. The entree was probably the only dish that is a more decent size. All other portion sizes were very tiny. I was disappointed how little soup was given. Soup was very tasty. My husband's cheesecake dessert was literally a few spoonful. I thought they were coming back to put the cake on top.
Service was excellent. I am a small person. I needed to eat bread to fill myself up with a 4 course meal. I can't imagine the men would feel full coming out from a 4 course meal.
I really enjoyed myself though. They were also attentive to my children.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLove itAnd will come back again! This was my 6th time there and all was perfect!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. Amuse boucheExcellent food. Amuse bouche and palette cleanser were amazing.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't rate it high enough...This was easily one of the Top 10 meals we have ever had. We had the seven-course tasting menu with wine pairing. Each course was excellently and delicately prepared with great attention to detail.
The selected wines went very well with each course and we were amazed each time a new course came out from the kitchen. The timing of each dish was perfect. Our experience lasted about three hours and it was worth every minute.
Although it is a blind tasting, your server will ask you if you have any dietary restrictions or special preferences so they can adjust accordingly.
Our server, Joanna was perfect. It is obvious she cares about her job and her guests.
Highly recommend Peller Estates if you are in the area.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't rate it high enough!We have eaten in a lot of restaurants and I can honestly say this was probably one of the Top 10 meals we have ever eaten.
We had the seven-course chef's tasting menu with wine pairings. I had a few questions about it that our server, Joanna, answered quickly and expertly. She was probably one of the best servers we have ever encountered. A real pleasure to interact with.
We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and the restaurant added a few nice touches including a table by the window, a glass of sparkling wine before the meal, and a Happy Anniversary note written in chocolate on our dessert plates.
We are so happy that we chose Peller Estates for our anniversary dinner.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality over quantityThis is a restaurant that focuses on the quality of its food rather than the quantity. So you need to gauge your expectations accordingly or you will go hungry. The Chet's tasting menu of 5 or 7 items is about right for most folks. Without or without wine pairing. Can be pricey but it is a food experience you'll remember for a long time,5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experienceThis was one of my best dining experience, thanks for making a special night amazing.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPellar Estates -a favourite of oursPellar Estate, and Jason Parsons overseeing the kitchen, is one of our favourite places to dine in the Niagara-on-the-Lake area. An excellent view of the vineyards, excellent service, and great food make for a very enjoyable experience.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mothers Day BrunchWe had the wine tasting brunch and everything was excellent. We were asked about food allergies etc. so the menu could be adjusted as needed. This was a very thoughtful thing to do. We love the restaurant and the winery.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely view and great wine/foodWe love going to Peller Estates and went for a special treat for Mother's Day. We had the 5 course tasting menu and loved it. The most unique combination was the soup course - fennel and taragon broth with scallops - and I look forward to getting the recipe to try it at home.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMbest meal ever experiencedWe loved our entire experience at Peller Estates Winery. The 7 course tasting menu with wine pairings was incredible. We returned the next day to purchase a couple of bottles of our favorite wine from the evening. My husband ordered from the main menu and had the elk and duck salad. The elk was like cutting through butter and was delicious. The service far exceeded our expectations as each wine was explained in detail as was each course of the tasting menu. The tasting menu is actually a blind menu that can be adjusted to accomodate any food allergies or preferences. A bit intimidated to try at first but so glad I did.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFive course dinner surpriseWe all ordered the Five course dinner Chef's choice dinner with the wine paring. It was excellent and because you really didn't know what you were getting it was an adventure for sure. You just didn't know what to expect and everything was fantastic. Our server was knowledgable and kept her distance when we were talking. She wasn't at the table all the time. What a wonderful place for dinner and just ambiance!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
