Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "We sat on the terrace and had a lovely lunch starting with a glass of the wonderful Trius Brut. The salmon and crab rillette was excellent, then followed by the perfectly cooked Manatoulin Island Trout Filet. All served absolutely correctly and a lovely presentation! Finished with the summer Strawberry dessert. Delicious!"

  • "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!"

  • "Last week I had lunch at Trius with 3 friends from different corners of the United States. We all agreed that the patio is about as close to heaven as one can get on a pleasant summer day! The starters were absolutely delicious, and the presentation of each dish was a work of art. We especially loved the tomato and sweet pepper soup, but the Atlantic Scallop was divine, and every dish was fresh and flavorful. We shared the Fresh Strawberries and Chocolate pot for dessert. Our only criticism about the food is that the portions could be a tiny bit larger. Our server, Kate, was knowledgable, attentive, and had a bubbly personality. This was my first visit to Trius, but definitely won't be my last!"

  • "What a wonderful experience. Patio view looking out into the vineyard, starting off the night with some pink bubbly, delish 5 course meal both for the eyes and mouth, enjoyed a Trius white and red during dinner, and caught some NIFF ambiance. Terrific end to our terrific day in Niagara."

  • "The food at Trius was excellent, the room lovely but the place is just missing something like personality. This stems from management down. Staff all seemed a little tired and lacked enthusiasm. They have such an opportunity to create a real sizzle and it just fell short. Even with great food, we would have a tough time returning unless we go with a large group of friends to provide our own fun."

  • "very rude waitress, asking her about a different menue, answers in a very bad manner. their menue on father's day very limited and poorly put together, their wine tasting area was good but not the wine , kind of expensive for the amount offered . will never go back , what a disapointment"

  • "We have returned year after year to dine at Trius. Two comments about our recent experience: 1. music upon arrival was loud, distracting for conversation 2. country music, which has its place and which I enjoy at times, but which I do not think is appropriate for a fine dining establishment 3. your present menu, in terms of layout and choices, is less comprehensible and less coherent than in the past. However, the food itself and the presentation were superb. The staff were very helpful in obtaining the desired wine, a Ghost Creek Riesling."

  • "Excellent restaurant! Service sas impeccable. They accepted our party of 4 25 mins after our reservation without delay. Waitress was very helpful, and when it got chilly on the patio,over us indoors to finish the meal. We stayed well past the closing time. Not only did they not rush us, but we were offered us a free snack AFTER our dessert course. The food is remarkable. We ordered almost Everything on the menu. Each dish was imaculately presented. And the flavours just explode in your mouth. Fantastic dinner. Recommend recommend recommend 4 of us ate, with 6 apps, 4 mains, 2 desserts, 1 bottle of white wine (+ 1 extra glass of red). Each person paid $75+tip"

  • "We went to the winery for movie night. Ambience is fantastic. The food was very creative. One issue - they ran out of beer. I understand it is a winery, but I'm just not sure how exactly you run out of beer."

  • "We have been here many times, and we have never failed to be delighted by this restaurant. We visited for lunch to celebrate my husband's birthday, and we sat out on their patio overlooking their vineyards. Beautiful setting, matched by our lovely waitress, Katie, who provided top-notch service. The lunch menu is small, but diverse. My husband had a buttermilk fried chicken panini and their delectable fries, and I ordered salmon atop ricotta and asparagus pasta. My salmon was absolutely perfectly prepared, a little crisped skin and moist pink inside. We ended with a cheese plate and some of their ice wine. A perfect afternoon!"

  • "We had our lunch at the Trius restaurant the past Monday. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. We were half an hour early and they made some rearrangement to seat us right away. The food was great too. the quality and plating were very nice. Price is comparable to other restaurant ."

  • "My sister and a bunch of friends had a lunch at Trius over the weekend and had a great time. The service staff were knowledgeable and were very helpful in answering our questions about food and wine pairings, they were also courteous and polite. We sat at the patio which had a view of the winery and the staff even gave us a heads up that a helicopter was landing ahead of time such that we wouldn't be startled. Outside of the restaurant, the grounds were beautiful. I would definitely come again! "

  • "I took my fiancé here for her birthday and was blown away by the service here. Our host had overheard us talking about our wedding and asked when we became engaged; a few minutes later we were greeted by flutes of complimentary champagne. The menu itself is a tasting menu although you can order a la carte if you choose. Although the portions are quite small (which makes sense since it is designed as a tasting menu)the portions are filling. All in all a 10/10 experience. I would recommend Trius to anyone who wants a romantic evening with great food and a wonderful view. "

  • "My husband and I were taking a well-deserved weekend getaway. We wanted a really nice dinner Saturday and we found it at Trius. While not inexpensive the restaurant has a nice ambience, comfortable seating and a good view of the vineyards. Service was outstanding and our waitress/ wine steward duo did a great job of pairing outstanding wines with each course and answering our questions. Our waitress, Ashley, kept a list of our favorite wines through dinner and we went back the next day to buy several bottles of each. Definitely a gem both as restaurant and winery."

  • "Food was good overall, if on the smallish side portions--but we were on a Mother's Day 3 course menu, so maybe it was portioned that way. Our server forgot many things, including bread for table, water, and topping up of wines. Service in general was inattentive and it was not that busy at that time, so no real excuse. Setting was lovely overlooking vineyards, but site lines of concrete columns cut off some of the view. Thought entire food, service, and atmosphere last time was much better than this visit, perhaps an off-time for them. Will try again."

The restaurant is beautiful with a fantastic view of the vineyard, the food was fabulous and the service very attentive. Though we have been wine club members for a number of years, this was our first visit to the restaurant. Overall, the experience was exceptional - thank you Trius!"

  • "The Truis burger is delicious so we decided to go for lunch. Atmosphere was exceptional, service very good....not too slow or fast and definitely not in your face. Our appetizers were very tasty we had the cheese platter and cream of mushroom soup. For our entrées we ordered the pork chop and the trout with duck egg. The presentation was excellent the meat for both entrées was cook well but the flavours not the greatest. The trout tasted like it was cooked in too much duck fat and tasted more like duck than trout which was disappointing because it was cooked perfect to medium as for the pork chop my husband said it lacked flavour. No dessert but we did join the wine club...so I guess it wasn't that bad."

  • "I was very impressed with the service here. I made a note on our reservation that it was our anniversary, and not only the host made a point of it to wish us well but our server as well. Gorgeous dining experience. Only slight downfall may have been the lack of options on the menu. I know this is common among most fine dinning restaurants but I felt in the mood for a good steak"
