  • "We ate lunch on the outdoor patio nestled under the umbrellas surrounded by greenery, a water fountain and a horizon filled with hilly rows of vineyards! Great ambience for a relaxing afternoon. Wait staff was extremely polite, friendly and knowledgeable about all the menu choices as well as the special events and history of Hillebrand. Our waitress was very approachable,attentive and helpful which enhanced our dining experience. Our menu choices were superb....the maple brined pork was done to perfection and melted in your mouth. The summer salad bowl was a colourful creation of beets, cheese, red onion and walnut...flavours all well balance. A tasty surprise was the seasonal corn bisque..creamy and with a smoky finish. Wine....fantastic!"

  • "My husband and I had one of the best meals we've ever had at Trius, we did the tasting menu and it was pretty much perfection. We've done many tastings at other restaurants where we liked some of the dishes but not all but at Trius each dish was equally amazing. It was the type of meal that at the end you wished you could go back and start all over again. It was so good in fact that no other restaurants compared the rest of our vacation. In hindsight we wish we could have just gone there every night, we can't stop talking about it. Our server too was so nice, she was very sweet and enhanced the experience that much more."

  • "Fantastic restaurant on a beautiful winery. Visited during a weekend getaway. It just happened to coincide with the Blues Festival and the atmosphere was electric. The wait staff were very attentive and very relaxed. We were a little worried since the Blues Festivities meant a limited menu, but we need not have been as the food was top notch. I would best describe it as rustic cuisine but delectably elevated. The corn bisque was perfectly balanced and not too sweet, but the crostini and pork belly gave it the perfect balance. The Wellington prime rib was perfectly cooked and the accoutrements were deliciously thought out. My girlfriend and I both enjoyed our meals greatly and we will definitely come back when we are next in the area."

  • "The view from the patio is gorgeous and the service is very good. They went out of their way to accommodate our allergies. The food was excellent but the menu was a bit limited. One surprise was the wine served with dinner was very reasonably priced and not marked up as we had expected in a winery. Lovely evening. Would definitely recommend."

  • "The food and wine was great, but our server lacked personality. The server waited on us like we were at Denny's. Very quick, and no classy presentation. But we loved the food and wine. Just not the server."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "This is a beautiful place with very nice wines, but a shallow dinner least! It was quite disappointing to see so few entree meals. We were there about 3 years ago and it was quite different! I could not recommend this to our friends!"

  • "Chef Frank Dodd is a magician. every course from the amazing "fish &chips" to the personalized dessert he created for us , was a culinary magic. out standing flavours with eye popping artistic presentations. Bravo! we'v been eating here for the past 12 years and this visit was the best . we took the 5 course menu, it was wearth every penny . service was friendly knowledgeable and impecable. we will definitely come back. no doubt , this is the best restaurant in the Niagara region !"

  • "My husband and I come from Rochester to NOTL every year to celebrate our anniversary. This is the second year we chose Trius for its tasting menu with wine pairing. We were not disappointed. Each course was expertly prepared and beautifully plated. The wine pairings enhanced the flavor of each course and each course enhanced the flavor of each wine. The patio is beautiful and the vineyard view at sunset is picture perfect. The service is quite good. Each server seems well-trained and is able to discuss both wine and food. The meal was well paced with a nice amount of time between each course. I would definitely recommend a trip to Trius."

  • "The vineyard setting is scenic, the ambience is beautiful, the food is amazing and the staff was helpful and friendly. We had been looking forward to a specific dessert, but the menu had changed the day before. Our waitress checked with the kitchen, and there were two left of the dessert we wanted, and they would hold them for us. Some of the best chocolate pots de creme! Of course, it's off the menu for now, but staff trying very hard to make the experience great."

  • "We did the 3 course brunch with wine pairing... each course presentation was very well done, tastes good but the portions were a bit small unless you got the pasta."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "It was a lovely dinner and the food was excellent...but there were 2 things that were a little annoying... 1) We reserved a table outside about a month ago through your service, and we were given a lousy table in back corner... 2) We ordered red meat dishes as our main course...and were not given steak knives...making it a little more difficult to cut our meat. When we asked about knives...we were told that the chef does not allow steak knives because the meat should be tender enough to cut with a regular knife...it was not. So we had to work at it. It was not tough, but it was annoying. That being said, Chris, our waiter was very nice and very helpful..."

  • "We have travelled many wineries in Australia, New Zealand , Chile, Italy, France , B.C. In Canada and Napa Valley and I must forget some. Trius was a very good experience with special presentation of fine foods. If you are in Niagara on the Lake don't miss this winery . Enjoy"

  • "We had a very nice 5 course dinner with 3 little extra courses in between and very good wine pairing. Service was excellent and the supervisor on-site was very friendly and made sure that everything was to our liking. Great place for a romantic evening. We dined inside for comfort but had a great view on the vineyards and sunset. We went on a Monday night so it was quiet and service was very quick."

  • "I had made a dinner reservation to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday on a Sunday night. We first went to the Wine Shop to had some Ice Wine Tasting, the person who served us was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Afterwards we had went for dinner, our server Brad was extremely accommodating and friendly. He acknowledged the fact that it was her birthday and made the dinner extra special with some very nice touches to our tasting menu. The view from the outdoor patio was phenomenal as you look out into the vineyards. Simply incredible. Will definitely come back again."

  • "With so much competition in Niagara area in terms of wineries, lot of them are upping the ante with additional services: boutique shops, restaurants, specialty tastings. In terms of the restaurant offerings, Trius aims for higher end and it is fairly good, albeit somewhat expensive for what it delivers. The food is tasty and polished, but not special in terms of inspiration. The menu is thin in terms of main course offerings, they are clearly geared to 5-course prix-fix. That approach back-fires when people are not hungry for all 5 courses - I did not find one main course intriguing enough to order, sticking to tiny appetiser. Service was good, atmosphere is pleasant and relaxed without being loose and the patio is the amazing."

  • "Tries never lets us down with their superb menu and wine pairings! When we travel to Niagara Falls, Trius is always on the top if our list to visit!"

  • "I work in the industry, and have to say that our experience here exceeded expectations. The food was absolutely incredible - the staff do a great job explaining each dish individually, and everything tasted amazing. They specifically recommend a win that pairs perfectly with the dish you ordered, and works with your personal preferences. We were greeted with a glass of their delicious Brut, which was perfect to sip on with our appetizer course. You can't beat the view of the vineyard either. 10 out of 10 forsure!"

  • "My party of four dined at 7:30pm on a summer Saturday. Among us were foodies who have dined around the world. Trius that night was one of the best dining experiences we have had. The ingredients and flavors are excellent, the presentation is striking, and the meals are creatively done. We look forward to returning."

  • "There was a wild table of young kids from a large party made a "romantic" evening on patio of a pricey place a little disappointing. When kids are running through the view you are paying for falling, and crying, it is kind of a bummer. The service was just minimal, server hard to locate, and different "food runners" seemed to take over after beverages were served. Food very good, though expensive. Of course, you are paying for the view, which is gorgeous. Servers looked happy that table of unruly kids left...it is a shame when parents can't teach kids under ten how to act if they are taking them to a nice place."

  • "Hadn't been here for a couple of years, but friends gave us a gift card. Pricey for the quality/quantity. Wine pairing with dinner only so-so. Friday night movie night ruined the view of the vineyards from the patio. Not what I expected or wanted for a beautiful Friday night with my lovely bride."

  • "A very lovely spot, made me happy just to sit there! The food and service were so great, it made our lunchtime experience memorable. I had the capon. The waiter was proficient and educationally enlightening, helping us understand the culinary nuances of cooking capon vs. chicken. And, it was a perfectly cooked delight. A good meal in the Niagra-on-the Lake wine region."

  • "I went for lunch with a friend to celebrate her birthday and we weren't disappointed at all. Although we couldn't have any alcohol (I was driving, she was on medication), the service and food was amazing. She had the Ontario Lamb Sirloin for entree and the Trius Vanilla Cheese Cake for dessert, while I had the Maple Brined Perth County Pork Chop and Chocolate Pot au Creme. Our waiter, Anthony, was very charming and graciously brought me a new dish when I realized that it was raw. I would definitely recommend Trius Winery Restaurant for an upscale dining experience."

  • "we stopped in for a late, lighter supper so we selected the cheese board and the meat board. The 5 cheese selections were very nice and represented a broad selection from sheep to goat to aged. The meat board was varied but I have to say, pretty skinny on the quantity. We found ourselves sharing a nibble to a thin sliver of cured meat trying to grasp the flavor of the presentation. Wines as always were excellent."

  • "Understand that I came in with VERY high expectations. The first time I went to this restaurant was almost 10 years ago and it was, at the time, and in my memory, the best meal I'd had in my life! I loved it so much that I bought the chef's cookbook (which I've used several times to great success) All I can remember is how spot on the pairings were and how ridiculously delicious the food was! I've returned twice since and it just hasn't met up with my expectations. The service is exceptional and the food was quite good, but the pairings were ok, not fantastic, and the food was just not as creative as it used to be. Everything was still delicious, I'm just stuck with that memory of my first experience that can never be recreated!"
