Benchmark always delivers excellent, quality food. I recommend this restaurant for great quality food at a reasonable price. Served by the students of the school
First off, superb service from a great staff. Next, a well thought out menu. We lucked out because the Valentine's Day prix fixe menu was still active and was really, really good. Portions generous, well prepared and both visually and taste-wise, delectable.
The onsite brewery and winery provided a very interesting addition with their beer and wine flights. Well worth the drive !!!!!
We really enjoyed our dinner. The Valentines Day menu was still going on several days later. The food was fantastic and very fresh. The manager gave me a copy of a recipe when I asked how the sorbet was made, which made me so happy. Worth the drive to Niagara for sure.
This is the second time we have been here. Each time we had young children with us. The restaurant is quite accommodating to the dietary needs of our children. This visit being a time when there is only the Valentine's menu, the kitchen that accommodate by providing additional children's menu items. Christian, our server, was very attentive, polite and helpful. For the price point, we felt the food what's excellent. Favorite was the slow-roasted Angus striploin. It was extremely juicy and tender. Highly recommended spot
The food tasted incredibly fresh and was plated so creatively. The staff were so attentive from start to finish. We will definitely be back for another wonderful meal!
Lovely day, the food was good & the service professional!!
Soup was not hot
Fish had no flavour
Duck was tough
Beet salad was good
Deserts were great
Portions were good. The food was very good but soup and main should have been hotter when served.
PRICE, WELL, GETTING TOO RICH FOR AVERAGE FOLK
MAITRE DE ON TOP OF EVERYTHING
Everything was easy, and relaxed. The service was very good, and the food well executed, and presented.
Everything was delicious. Best digby scallop dish I have ever had. D
Excellent food and service! Presentation was very artistic and wonderful to look at (and eat)!
This was my first time here but won’t be my last. The restaurant was lovely with a beautiful snowy scene out the ambundant windows. Terrific food and very friendly staff. They provided a beautiful piece of pumpkin cheeseCake for my friend’s birthday as well. Amazing to know that the kitchen is staffed with students from Niagara College’s culinary program. Well done!!!
Food and facilities were excellent, and the availability and range of onsite craft beers and local wines made the experience all the more enjoyable. The hot beet salad was amazing, as were the scallops (Mary Jane) and cod (Dave). The bread appetizer was great, but perhaps could have been paired with some dipping oils/sauces. All in all, well worth the hour's drive. We'll be back. :)
This was our first visit to Benchmark. The restaurant has a very comfortable and inviting ambience. The service we received was very friendly and attentive. Most importantly, the food was delicious. All four of us were more than pleased. Value for the money is excellent. We will definitely be back again and again. I’d consider this a real find.
