Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I recently had an amazing afternoon lunch at Vineland Estates. The food was tasty and the view spectacular. I also discovered a wonderful new wine called Pinot Meunier. This light red was a delightful surprise. I highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion."

  • "food was reasonably good; service was excellent; but the single medium piece of scallop on my appetizer was too small to swallow;"

  • "I had gone there on a recommendation and they lived up to their reputation! It was a special day as I had earlier proposed over the falls in a helicopter! We then went to Vineland and had their 3 course creative lunch with wine pairing....mmmm! We were late for our reservation however they kept our special reserved table for us...class act! Great service, great food, great wine...all of which they are known for. Thanks again Vineland!"

  • "This was our second visit to experience the chef's 5 course creative menu. This should be on everyone's "bucket list" to try at least once. All of the selections were exceptional, but the overall table favourite was the duck breast with mushroom risotto that literally melted in your mouth. It was a beautiful July evening on the patio. Thank you Vineland for another memorable evening out!"

  • "A little pricy but well worth it. We both had the 5 course dinner and it was amazing. Great setting and even better food."

  • "Patio view was breathtaking and food was well beyond our expectations."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Not quite the same since the patio tree came down. The sail needs another layer to keep the sun off the tables. Still one of our favorite spots for lunch or dinner."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "My husbandand I love to go with friends to Vineland Estats Restaurant. Great ambience,and we enjoy the wine pairings offered with the chef's menu. Lovely spot with historic buildings and great wine shop."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We had the back room off the patio, which was half contained, half open to the air but totally shaded. We lucked out and it was our own private spot. The food, as usual was wonderful, and the staff very accommodating and friendly."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "We keep returning to Vineland Estates for a very good reason. It is a truly incredible food, wine and Ontario experience. The chef's creative menu was done with imagination and made from the very best incredients possible. The staff are always friendly and time the delivery of your courses perfectly. Dining here is just like making the "Discover Ontario" commercials into reality. We will be back!"

  • "My partner and I received a gift certificate for the chef's creative luncheon with wine pairing for Christmas, but we saving it for a nice summer day since we were told they have a wonderful patio. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease (cannot have gluten) a few weeks ago and was afraid it would affect my ability to enjoy the lunch. Not at all! I contacted Vineland in advance and was told that it would be no problem at all. The hospitality manager made a special note in my reservation for the Chef, and that was all there was to it. The entire creative lunch was gluten-free. The food was absolutely delicious. I usually don't even like red wine, but the wine they picked for the pairing we enjoyed so much we bought a bottle on our way out!"

  • "Wife's pickerel was very good but $50 steak was well done, instead of medium. Restaurant comped wine to make up for it which was the right thing to do."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • " We have dined at vineyard restaurants in several countries and have never had a better experience. Each course presented the same dilemma - we did not want that course to be finished but we could not wait for the next to arrive! Every dish was as beautiful as it was delicious and worked well with the wine. Our first visit was about 15 years ago and we return often and we have found the food to change almost in step with our tastes. The food, the wine, the service and the view - - - who could ask for more. Finally, to Visa Infinite holders, check for the perks!"

  • "We sat on the terrace with a view of the vines and Lake Ontario. The weather, the view, the food, wine and service could not have been better. Whenever we are in the Niagara Region of Ontario, we always eat here."

  • "Went to Vineland Estates on a sunny afternoon for lunch on the patio with a group of four. I loved the perfectly prepared scallop appetizers and the amazing duck confit (a take on chicken & waffles). Everyone else was equally impressed with their meals. The only thing that detracted from the food and setting was the service. Julie C., our server, was not very attentive resulting in our entrees arriving with all of our wine glasses empty. None of the other wait staff seemed to notice what we considered an oversight either. We did manage to order another bottle of wine which arrived promptly after most of our meal was finished. Disappointing to eat such a nice meal without wine to accompany it...and at a winery too!!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The view and ambience on the patio is excellent. The food was above average but not excellent. Service was first class. We will return."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Lunch at Vinelands was a real treat. We dined on the patio overlooking rolling hills and vineyards down to the lake, and dined on expertly-prepared food. The service was excellent, and we felt appreciated and cared for. I recommend this setting to anybody doing wine tours in the area, as we were, or for a special occasion."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Food was amazing. Lots attention to detail making the dishes very intricate. They use local fresh ingredients to make their creative dishes. The amazing view was the cherry on top."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We have dined (lunch) at Vineland a number of times before and it is consistently a great experience for us. You provide a very welcoming environment, serve up delicious food and wine, and deliver very friendly and attentive service. Vineland has good looking buildings (restaurant, function suite and wine shop) and a relaxing layout. The restaurant has a comfortable feeling with great views over the vineyard to Lake Ontario. You cannot go there and not have a wonderful experience."

  • "I splurged and had the 5 course meal (which I could have shared with someone!). Took longer for dinner, but it included many delicious tastes and special foods."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "My friends and I were out to celebrate our mutual birthdays and decided to take a day trip to the Niagara wine region. Our main goal was to have some delicious food and try some different wines. Our experience at Vineland Estates more than exceeded our expectations. We all enjoyed the lunch tasting menu. Each course was beautifully presented. But the intensity of the flavours and the cooking were what blew us away. We will certainly be returning to enjoy the food, ambiance and service at this lovely restaurant."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Worth EVERY penny for the Chef Tasting menu and premium wine pairings. Server was a young lad in University who had been with them since age of 15. He was exceptional with service and knowledge of wine pairings. Loved every minute of the evening...EXCEPTIONAL!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "It's been a few years since we last dined at Vineland - the kitchen had lost its way. But boy, it's now back - and how. The views have always been spectacular - by far the best on the peninsula, especially from the large outside deck. Food on this visit was truly outstanding - it's not cheap, but it's wonderful value. The service was outstanding - attentive but not "in-your face". I'd highly recommend the revived Vineland for any sort of event - small, low key to larger celebration We will be back"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We had dinner at Vinelands June the 5th and truly had an amazing culinary experience. The tasting menu was an excellent reflection of the quality of our experience. The chef truly knew what he was doing. The service was bar none EXCELLENT!"
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "we went to vinelands because of the reputation and it did not disappoint. A relaxed meal with well crafted and tasty delights. we opted for the al la carte rather than the fixed meal and all five of us had a fantastic meal. Will definitely come again and recommend it to my friends. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Don't hesitate - have the "Creative Menu" with the reserve wine pairing. The wines chosen are a beautiful complement to the spectacular food - you would not think either could get any better but toegther they do!! A very special treat! "

  • "I have been here twice. This place is extraordinary for those who have sampled our global village. The view is amazing. The food and wine parings are perfect. But it still retains an off-the-grid ambiance. It is worth the trek from whatever corner of the world you reside. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Very nice tasting menu and wine pairing. There was some construction out front (maybe new landscaping?) so a little muddy and unattractive but will probably look lovely when it' small finished). Food was great but we also really like the wines here."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Excellent winery, restaurant has great food, service and serves great wines from its winery which were all very good. The view is also spectacular and all the employees there are very friendly and accommodating. Will vists again."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "We came here to celebrate Mother's Day and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious, atmosphere and view lovely, and the service outstanding. One of the reasons chose Vineland because they were serving a 3 course meal rather than a buffet brunch, which was much better for my 90 year old mother who does not enjoy buffets. She is a tough judge and she thoroughly enjoyed the food and the venue. I would not hesitate to return here. It is a great place for a group but I would also come here to enjoy a evening out with my husband."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We went on Mother's Day, not for that occasion, but b/c we were in the region for the day from out of town. It isn't our usual spot. It was a fixed menu, which was disappointing but understandable, and the food was good, even with the limited choices. The wine list, of their own wines, is reasonable, but I wasn't excited by it. Service was cheerful and reasonably attentive, given how busy they were. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "This is our third mothers day brunch at Vineland. Every year they put together a varied, interesting and delicious menu at a price that in my mind is very reasonable value. They were accommodating to our 5 yr old, creating a separate pasta dish for him. The servers were knowledgable and offered great advice on the wine pairings throughout the meal. The restaurant itself is lovely, a renovated old farmhouse building - the dining area offers great views of the vineyards and Lake Ontario in the distance."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Seven of us went to lunch here on Mothers Day to honour the three mothers present. There was a special menu for the day and all of us were very pleased with the choices we made. The servings were tasty, attractively plated, and just the right size - not too small and not overwhelmingly huge! The service was friendly and attentive. And the setting - on an escarpment vineyard with Lake Ontario in the distance on one of our first really nice days of spring - fantastic! We will add this to our list of favorites in Niagara."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "There was obvious attention to detail from the moment we were shown to our table. The seating was arranged to take advantage of the view AND to allow ourselves an intimate setting for conversation. We received superior attention without feeling intruded upon. We also appreciated the EXCELLENT wine selection advice from the knowledgeable staff. The flavours and freshness of the dishes we ordered were outstanding! Ours was a celebration of a special occasion, and our whole lunch experience was just that-special! "

  • "Sunday lunch at Vineland Estates is a treat I look forward to. We always have the chef's tasting menu and are never disappointed. On this last visit, we started with a delicious red pepper soup garnished with prosciutto & creme fraiche. The main course was a perfectly cooked skirt steak with asparagus and roast potato with goat cheese. To round out the meal, the most delicious creme brulee I've had in ages. We choose the wine pairing for each course which only added to the experience. Service was excellent - friendly but not too much so and knowledgeable about the foods & the wines. Definitely will be back in the future. "
