  • "This was the second time we have celebrated a special occasion here. Both were memorable in a positive way, very good food prepared in a creative and thoughtful fashion, attentive, personalized service in a ambient setting. A wonderful experience, we would recommend without reservation."

  • "We chose the 5 course meal with classic wine pairings. Each dish was unique, beautifully presented and perfectly paired with wine. The waiter kindly answered our questions about the ingredients and was very knowledgable about each course and each food pairing. What a wonderful meal experience. The classic rock music playing in the background was the cherry on the cake!"

All food was excellent in taste and presentation, and delivered to our table in a very professional way. Ambiance and scenic view from our table was excellent. We would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "At first didn't know what to expect when I first made the reservation. However, I was really very impressed by everything from the wine tasting, the scenery to the restaurant's food and the quality of service. Even the prices are a bit high it was worthwhile. I highly recommended for those special moments (occasions) like anniversaries and b-day or just want to give a special treat to that someone special. This is the place to go and enjoy a good wine and meal and enjoy the scenery in company of that someone."

  • "We continue to come here every time we are in the Niagara Wine region and it never fails to please. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the kitchen is willing to make changes if you have dietary restrictions. Food is imaginative, well presented and delicious to the last bite. Highly recommended."

  • "My wife and I go at least once every two months as it is a 45 min drive from where we live. On this occasion we had the five course Chef designed special menu. It was presented beautifully by our very knowledgeable server who not only described a complex nesting of flavours but recommended wine pairings that enhanced the whole dining experience a hundred fold. This restaurant remains one of our favourites and I would complement the staff on the food preparation as well as the presentation. Our good fortune was to bring along some close friends who were visiting from Ottawa and that evening was the highlight of their trip!!!!"

  • "We brought a group of out of town and local friends here after an afternoon at the Shaw. The staff were very accommodating and attentive. At our table of 8 we had dietary challenges for eggs and gluten; 3 of us had the creative tasting menu with wine pairings...an exceptional foodie treat and the others selected widely from the a la carte menu. All menu items were delicately plated, delicious and the meal well paced given the variations in courses we were having. We had a wonderful evening and were able to purchase estate wines there long after the winery store had closed. Highly recommend Vineland Estates Winery especially for Riesling fans and the location away from the busyness of Niagara on the Lake. We'll be back!"

  • "We went for dinner at Vineland during our first visit to the Niagara-on-the-Lake region. We decided to go for the 5 course chef's menu and we were satisfied beyond our expectations with every course of the meal. The presentation was nice, the food always had the perfect temperature, texture/consistency and the mix of flavor was divine. The location of the restaurant and wineyard is a bit remote, but that makes it even more enchanting. The old stone buildings and the overview of the wineyard and countryside makes the view quite romantic. We will surely come back when we next visit the area!"

  • "This continues to be one of my all time favorite restaurants in & around the GTA. We thoroughly enjoyed the tasting menu for lunch. Red pepper bisque to die for, steak cooked to perfection with a bacon jam to perfectly complement. I'm not a cauliflower lover, but the puree accompanying the dish with roasted vegies was delicious. Dessert of white chocolate tart with seasonal berries was the perfect end. Wine pairings made the meal more awesome. The view from the deck was so relaxing. Service was attentive but not obtrusive. The food and wine continue to be outstanding here. I will definitely be back."

  • "5 course dinner done properly. Food beats 5 star hotels and big name restaurants in toronto. Sevice was slow and chill but why are you in a hurry? Good view. Minor food comment: mushroom risotto was a little too acidic and not earthy enough for me. Overall: very impressed and you should go."

  • "Another great experience and awesome food! Only concern was while sitting outside on the beautiful patio we were inconvenienced with the level of flies...which was a little expected sitting outside. Still over all another great experience and will return. thanks."

  • "We haven't been back to Vineland Estates for 5 years, after a very disappointing experience 5 years ago. However, a friend told us they had improved - so we thought we'd try it again; we did that this weekend. Our group of 6 very discerning foodies had the 5 course tasting menu and I'm delighted to say every dish was superb. The combination of ingredients were often surprising, yet worked unbelievably well. As just one example, corn bisque with shrimp and pork belly was heavenly. Our only disappointment was that we forgot to get the recipe. Similarly, the unusual combination of lime sorbet with spicy chocolate cake was a perfect way to end the dinner. The wine pairings were also excellent. We'll certainly be back soon!"

  • "This restaurant is expensive but the food is not only a meal it is an experience. If you have the opportunity to try a chef's menu selection, then try it. A la carte is always good but the selection groupings are extraordinary."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "food was reasonably good; service was excellent; but the single medium piece of scallop on my appetizer was too small to swallow;"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
