We enjoyed a shared tomahawk steak and their Bordeaux blend style red. Both absolutely outstanding. We’ve drunk plenty of good Bordeaux in our time but never have enjoyed beef of that quite quality. Clearly people who care about what they serve and do it very well.

My beautiful wife and I went to HILLSIDE WINERY for our 22year wedding anniversary. Our table was booked for 830pm . Upon arrival we were greeted very nicely and seated right away. No messing around with the menu everything was clear and communicated well , our server was bubbly and happy to be there .. she was descriptive in the selection of wines available and recommended popular dishes to suit .. after the main coarse our server asked us if we would like to sit outside on the patio for desert and we readily agreed!! The surroundings were pretty/the ambience just right our server brought a blanket for my wife to snuggle in while enjoying a bowl of coffee flavoured ice cream with blueberries and chocolate! We paid our bill and drove away into the night both of us thinking ..”what a delightful experience that we will not forget” ❤️

We had our anniversary dinner on Sep 25 at Hillside, and it could not have been more perfect! We were early for our reservation, but they still took us in and seated us on the patio so we could slowly have some wine and enjoy the beautiful afternoon. Our server (sorry can't remember her name) was amazingly helpful and friendly, and she went over and above to get us set up with the wine club. The view, atmosphere, food and wine were all superb!

I understand that restaurants are struggling to hire and train staff after the last rollercoaster year, however it was disappointing to see our waitress ignore our table and spend time chatting with other servers. We waited for 30 mins to get our drinks and appetizer which we could see sitting on the counter waiting for pickup. We were about to go find her when our entrees took another hour to arrive. Dinner for two took 2.5 hours to complete and we were ignored for most of that time. Very disappointed and expected better based on the reviews and the bill.

This winery restaurant has a menu that is not overly ambitious (a good thing), and we enjoyed the light meal we had — particularly the halibut main. We also liked the elegant muscat white wine. Unfortunately the weather turned cooler, so we weren’t able to eat outside. Recommended.

We had our hearts set on the tomahawk ribeye, and even though they were out of it for the evening, the chef graciously prepared a portion for us - and it did not disappoint.

Our server was could have been a robot and I wouldn't have noticed a difference. Excusable if they were in a rough / stressful situation, otherwise would have loved to see more engagement.

Best creme brule I've ever had since it didn't taste like burnt sugar, perfectly caramelized.

All other food was great. Wines were quality.

first time having dinner at Hillside -- have stopped in for lunch many times. The dinner menu has more large plates, less sharing options. Still very enjoyable. My husband and I split the bone in pork loin and I loved it altho he thought it was just good. Our friends very much enjoyed their pork belly and scallop dish. We ordered a gorgeous bottle of wine to go with dinner; loved it so much we bought 2 more to take home. Wished we could have done a proper tasting before dinner but tasting hours and dinner service hours don't overlap at all.
