A word from Ravine Vineyard Restaurant
Tucked away from the bustle of Niagara and set among the vines on St. Davids Bench, this fifth-generation, family-owned farm property invites casual country dining overlooking the Niagara Peninsula.

Ravine Vineyard's Winery Restaurant features refined rustic fare with a contemporary edge, featuring the best ingredients from the nearby garden and local farms, under the inspired guidance of Chefs Nathan Young and Paul Harber.

Enjoy an organic, property-grown salad, a plate full of mussels or BLT made with bacon from pigs raised at Ravine and delicious desserts paired with Ravine's critically acclaimed biodynamic and organically-grown wines.

  • "Had a fantastic lunch experience and the view was simply amazing. Food and service were excellent with good proportions. Best part was the wine, menu had suggested pairings. Add the wine tour at the adjoining building with tasting at the end and it made the most memorable visit to Niagara yet. Looking forward to visiting again in the summer when the vineyard is in full bloom full of colour!"

  • "For my husband's birthday, we thoroughly enjoyed lunch at The Ravine. Friendly staff, timely service, bright cheerful ambiance (even on a cloudy day) prepared us for the lovely meal. The mushroom soup with biscuit were a burst of flavour, the green salad with parmigiano reggiano bright and satisfying,the trout was perfectly prepared sitting on a round of bread pudding, and the buttermik chicken crisp on the outside with melt-in-your mouth inside with the best bean salad I've ever had! The delicious meal was nicely accompanied by crisp, dry white wine. Will return."

  • "The food was fantastic and service was great! I would go back in a minute. The staff were able to coordinate getting our brunch order in quickly so that we could make it to their "fun food pairing" after brunch. The food was fantastic and we had a great view of the vineyard. The fun food pairing was well done too. We tried different snack foods like chips and chocolate and sampled multiple wines to see which ones we thought matched best! Great idea!"

  • "We were in Niagara for a day and wanted a nice place for dinner, so I found Ravine Vineyard on TripAdvisor. It was well rated and we were not disappointed. The only problem we had was it was very, very quiet, which is understandable in March. We ended up being the only people in the restaurant for most of our meal, but it was delicious, and the service was very good. We were able to try some of the vineyards wines with dinner and purchase bottles at the vineyard price."

  • "Our friend turned 50 in mid-March and we decided to take her for a spa weekend. For the 'special birthday celebration' dinner,, we picked Ravine. We were not disappointed! We ordered a couple of share appetizers - oh my goodness - the trout pate - fabulous; chicken pate with clarified butter - wonderful. Our main courses were great. Lamb shank with lentils and stuffed Cornish hen. The restaurant was quiet but we had VIP service; Tina, our waitress was attentive but not overbearing. Entertainment all to ourselves. At the end of the evening, we toured the kitchen / facilities below - clean and they had a private area with barrels and a cantina where one could host a private intimate party. We will go again, next time in NOL."

  • "My husband and I visited Ravine with last minute reservations and were pleased we were able to get a table. Our meal was absolutely delicious! My husband had the Baby Romaine Salad and the Whitefish, I had the Trout Rillette and the Ravioli. We both enjoyed our dishes as they were very flavourful and beautifully presented. The wine we chose for each of our dishes were paired well as per suggested by the menu. We ended our meal with a cheesecake dessert that was not too rich but a good sweet ending. That evening there was live music -- a gentleman singing with an acoustic guitar. It brought the ambience a bit lively but not too intrusive. The service was what I expected -- warm and welcoming and checking in with us once in awhile."

  • "We've loved Ravine wine for a while, and so we were excited to go there as part of Fabulicious. It lived up to our expectations 100%! Excellent food and we even got to drink some classic Ravine wine we hadn't tried before. And the service was excellent - super knowledgeable and very pleasant! We'll go back for sure!"

  • "The food was totally excellent, as were the servers. However, it was overly expensive (we all thought) and I was slightly offended at having to pay more than twice the cost of a bottle of wine that I was able to buy just steps away at their retail shop. We also went there for the "Days of wine and chocolate" and while the triple layer cake was to die for (the best I've had), their ice wine sample was the chintziest one out of all the wineries we went to 28 of them). What's with that! Are they showcasing their food, or their wine? It doesn't appear to be both."

  • "My husband & I decided to try the Fabulicious lunch at Ravine. It was a set course which you could complement with wine selections. I started w/the liver parfait, followed by trout and chocolate caramel pie. Everything was delicious! I raved about the liver parfait (pate) & asked if it was avail. in the store. Our server (sorry, can't remember her name) said it wasn't but would see if the chef had some avail. for sale. He did & we bought it. We had it with the fresh baguette we bought in the store, later that night, which only extended the pleasure and satisfaction we felt with our lunch. WELL DONE, RAVINE!"

  • "Went here for dinner on Feb 15th, the service was great and far away from Niagara tourist area (10-15mins drive). There was a musician playing in the lounge and they tastefully decorated the place for the Valentines theme. This really set a great overall ambiance in the restaurant. We had the charcuterie board (excellent), duck leg and rib eye (pretty good). The portions are a good size for the price and it's the kind of food you would expect from a vineyard restaurant. The dining room has floor to ceiling windows and we can only imagine how beautiful the scenery would be during the summer months! Too bad it was dark and winter. Would definitely go to this restaurant again during lunch in the summer."

  • "We visited this restaurant on a Sunday evening in early February. It was quiet -- only three tables. Still, the food was fantastic and the lamb was packing tons of flavour. Definitely recommended as a place to visit in NOTL. The only thing we didn't enjoy was getting lost, as the restaurant is located at this address in St. David's, Ontario -- not Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. That's somebody's house. If you're relying on the GPS to guide you, make sure you've got the right town!"

  • "The view of the snow covered vineyards made the inside of the restaurant feel even more cozy for our reunion lunch. The roasted root vegetable soup was a hit with it's rich, smooth texture and depth of flavour. The mussels came nice and hot, with a subtly herbed broth. I wanted to soak up every drop with the artisanal bread that accompanied our meal. The service was warm and attentive. Our party of five all enjoyed their selections ( a salad for the lady, hearty gourmet style burgers for two of the men, and trout for another). We would definitely like to try the dinner menu the next time we're visiting the area."

  • "These people are really into neat food concepts . Their own bread , wine , meat , vegetables , and a general store selling their brands plus gourmet items . In the summer it would be outdoors spectacular . Quite out of the way , but convenient once you find it . The food was excellent , basic with an upscale twist . Beet cake , like carrot cake but beets for example . We will take our children , and grandchildren, here for special occasions"

  • "Courses over-salted to point of being inedible (same problem in different dishes). Exceedingly poor waiter. Had to yell over noise level. Long waiting times for service. Were not given water until we asked for it while ordering (15 minutes in). Different amounts of wine poured. Pairings worked with only parts of the dishes. Served the same preserved cabbage in both courses. Did not bother staying for dessert. Worst restaurant experience in memory. Had high hopes because of great reviews. Thoroughly disappointed and would not go back or recommend. Table next to us also left half of their second course on their plates."

  • "Took my girlfriend for lunch and we both had the most amazing butternut squash soup of our lives. It honestly was to die for, especially with the rosemary goat cheese muffin that just melted in your mouth. I would higly recommend the Ravine to everyone i know. Main course was breath taking, I enjoyed every single bite of the salmon so much flavour! And the Chocolate cake was out of this world Amazing! It was so worth all of the calories, every bit of it!"

  • "Best cuisine in the Niagara Wine Country. You don't want to miss out on a meal in the vineyard and not to mention their outstanding wines produced! Highly recommend. My very favourite wine/restaurant in Niagara. Food is fresh, delicious and artistically presented. The service is friendly and attentive. Prices are moderate. Scenic view of the vineyard. Wine for purchase in boutique area coupled with wine tasting. You get free wine tasting when you show you dining receipt! Great place to visit!"

  • "Restaurant has a nice atmosphere, very welcoming and non pretentious. Menu has a great selection of fresh to table items and seasonal menu. Wine pairing recommended to really savour the different wines offered by Ravine. The restaurant overlooks the vineyard and is great for a special occasion, girls lunch, romantic meal or family dinner. We have never had a bad experience and I have been at this restaurant 4times in the past 3 months. Don't miss out, a must try if you are in the Niagara wine region!"

  • "We had lunch there recently. The food was quite good and they had some nice wine pairing suggestions for all of their dishes. The menu was very limited and there was nothing that really caught my eye however, the food that we ordered was very good and well prepared. Service was a bit uneven but overall was fine."
