    Fetucinne was bland as was the lamb. Presentation was nice. good choice of vegitables with the lamb. Trout was good. Not sure why we needed two servers as the one waiter did most of the work while the waitress just took our order and money.

    We recentlty dined at Vineland Estates with our daughter and her boyfriend and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We all selected the chef's menu, with the classic wine pairings, which was kindly tweaked to accommodate our daughters gluten allergy. The staff were extremely accommodating, and the few changes needed for her were taken care of and beautifully presented. Love, love, love this restaurant!

    was lovely vineyard and beautiful view - the dining room was nicely decorated. Table was unstable but seats comfortable, we had a hornet buzzing around us the entire time and ended up killing it ourselves. the service started out well but then got really slow - we were the first people seated but others received their food faster than us. Some of the group loved their food - others were not satisfied. the wine was lovely - it should be if they make it themselves. Little overpriced for the experience.

    Last Monday was my second time in Vineland and it was better than the first last summer, and the first was amazing! I love the way the food is presented, perfect time, no long wait; the local red wine was smooth and sweet. The scenic view is beautiful and match perfectly with the environment within the restaurant. Actually I can said Vineland is one of my favorite places!!!!

    I've dined at Vineland many times, entertained clients and friends there. This last time however, I felt the food had declined somewhat. the beef served for lunch was a striploin, sliced, it was tough to be honest, there were many slices but couldn't eat them. The choice of a main, seemed standard and not the usually inventive fair I was used to. wine and service were flawless, and we enjoyed ourselves

    We had trouble getting there as all the accesses from NOTL were blocked/detoured & consequently we arrived 10 min. past our 3pm/their last reservation time & we feared we'd be turned away. But the maitre couldn't have been kinder, told us we were there now, showed us to our table & said just relax & enjoy. And we did. The views were breathtaking, the ambiance calm & welcoming, the service impeccable & the food beyond delicious & at no time did we feel rushed. It was the perfect end to my husband's Birthday weekend in NOTL before taking our sons to Pearson airport to return to NYC.

    It has been some years since we went to Vineland, but this trip was just as good if not better than our last visit. The food was exceptional, the service timely and friendly, and, being a fan of their Elevation Riesling, the 2008 was a real treat. Sitting on the patio with its wonderful vista and the sun setting was a perfect evening. I wouldn't hesitate to go back or recommend to anyone.

    Stunning views from all seats in the restaurant and the patio, elegant table settings, friendly attentive staff are a backdrop for the imaginative and delicious menu. Plating is modern, portions are perfect, cooked to perfection, taste is exactly perfect. Deserts are fun and creative. The property is beautiful with old stone buildings housing the winery and the gift store that has a variety of items from clay pottery to spices and all things wine related. The wine we choose was crisp and light matching perfectly with the dinner. A wonderful spot for lunch or dinner. My Number One pick of the year.

    90 minute drive but worth it!...94 year old mother came along and was pleased to be helped with her walker and other needs in a kind but unobtrusive way. The staff is welcoming, knowledgeable and attentive, but know when to leave us alone to enjoy our meal and our own company. We were seated in a shady spot with a fabulous view of acres of grapes with Lake Ontario and Toronto in the distance. Our lunches included fresh trout and pork tenderloin beautifully and may I say tastefully presented! ... starters included a yummy corn soup and at the end, we indulged ourselves with chocolate, maple and other delights.(I feel like I am gushing...you really should try it for yourself! ) oh...and the suggested wine pairings were delicious.

    This patio offers a view that I think is unmatched in Ontario. From the patio in late summer, rows of vineyards fill the panorama as far as the eye can see. The food is thoughtful and the service helpful. I think about this place often over the winter months.
