The food was amazing. We had the 3 course menu. All of the things we tried were great. It’s pricey but it was worth it for a nice night out.

Wonderful easy small meal before the movie at The Film House. Our waitress was awesome and no rushing us to leave so we could linger. Perfect!

Everything is made in house from the fresh baked bread, fresh pastas and sauces, gelato and incredible desserts.

About the restaurant
The Oaklands celebrates simplicity, the season, and a sense of place. We connect people to place through respect for our history, our land, artisans and our commitment to warm hospitality and service. The restaurant takes its culinary cues from Niagara’s ingredient driven cuisine, rooted in the breadth and depth of global French culinary influence.

The beautiful setting encourages you to lose track of time enjoying stunning vineyard views and our sister property, Peller Estates, while enjoying a menu that changes with the seasons.

The service was exceptional and the interior decor was very elegant. The outside dining view of the vineyards is spectacular; however, we chose to dine indoors because the humidity that day was very high. We both ordered the scallops with asparagus, which were absolutely delicious. However, I thought the entree might have been hotter when it arrived. We have dined a number of times at Oaklands and have always enjoyed the experience. We look forward to returning again!

The food was fabulous. The service was friendly and not rushed which is how we like it. Although the first wine pairing was not what we would have picked, the other 3 were excellent. Overall a wonderful experience.

About the restaurant
Peninsula Ridge Estates is truly a world class wine and culinary destination catering to guests who are looking to pair a relaxed and casual atmosphere with an incredible dining experience. The property is stunning, with breathtaking views of the Niagara Escarpment, Lake Ontario including the Toronto Skyline and of course our pristine vineyards. The restaurant is set in our historic "Queen Anne Revival" Victorian mansion perched on the brow of the Beamsville Bench and features a great outdoor patio for dining during our long summer days and nights.



Our culinary team takes great pride in offering the ultimate dining experience using fresh locally grown produce (often grown right down the street) served by skilled, professional and friendly staff. Our reputation for epicurean excellence is often one of the main reasons why people choose The Restaurant at Peninsula Ridge.

About the restaurant
People are going to spell our name wrong, and they’re going to question the choice. Simplicity applies to all things, and burgers are not an exception. We get right to the point at HAMBRGR. We give our guests the perfect combination of locally sourced ingredients, a wide selection of craft beer, culinary artistry, and of course, one of the most memorable experiences one can muster in the enriching restaurant culture sweeping over the city.
