Lovely ambiance . The only negative was how dour our server was . Not sure she was having a bad day or what , but they should hire more pleasant and friendly servers for the price a diner is paying .

Tried the 7 courses tasting menu - good experimental dishes but some are a bit over-seasoned. Didn't go with the wine pairing but the server there provided very good recommendations on the wine choice to go with the menu.

I would have loved to give this restaurant 5 stars but I had a few issues. The lunch we had was great, I had the braised lamb sirloin and my mom had the salmon. They gave us a great appetizer on the house. We ordered the honey mascarpone cheesecake for dessert, which was a bit disappointing. It was two chunks of mascarpone cheese with a small scoop of peach sorbet on top of graham wafer crumbs... but there was no cake! The dish was odd and misleading.

I gave this restaurant a 3/5 because our waitress was extremely rude at the end of our meal. When I paid she held the machine, ripped off the receipt and just dropped it on the table and left in a huff. I tipped 15% but it seemed like she was incredibly offended by this tip, and it really put a damper on our meal. Either the tip was the problem or she was annoyed that we were at this restaurant, maybe she expected a different class or race of people, I'm not sure. I would still recommend this restaurant to others but not without mentioning this incident.

Heard great things about the food, however the execution fell a bit short. Had the 5 course tasting menu: The first course was some sort of terrine - texture was not smooth but rather chunky. The second corse was some roasted tomato soup - the amount of black pepper added to the soup did nothing but overpower any sort of tomato taste left. The 3 course was a seared salmon - the skin was beautifully crisp however the salmon was overdone - it should have had a little pink inside. The fourth course was the duck breast - I didn't have any issues with mine but some of my friend's duck was too rare and it became too chewy - they had to spit it out. The last course was a deconstructed berries cheese cake - it was nice but there was too much sauce. Will consider trying other wineries next time before I return.

I had a great experience here at Peller. I had the seven course tasting menu with wine pairing and it was fabulous. Restaurant was gorgeous and the view was beyond beautiful espacially the sunset. Pairings went very well with each course. Service was well executed as well.

we have rated the food a four star but the scallops were "soggy" and that meal I would rate a 3.
The service was excellent and our server was very knowledgeable and very pleasant. In particular our dessert was delicious and the bottle of sauvignon blanc provided a most soothing taste to the palate.

Peller has perhaps become a victim of its own success. It does a very large group dining business and attracts large numbers of international tourists. Thus, on a busy night the kitchen and wait staff become overwhelmed among all the customers spread over several dining rooms.
This is what occurred on my recent Sunday night at the restaurant. Service was slow and perfunctory, and the 5-course tasting menu (all chef's choice) was uninspiring. There are better choices in NOL for a splurge dinner.

The food was HORRIBLE. I treated my co-worker with the 5 course meal and I was very disappointed. I had dined at the Peller Estate 10 years ago with my company and I remember the food being outstanding. The quality has really gone down. The wine is good but I would not recommend the restaurant.

This dining experience was a big diaappointment on several fronts. We were visiting the area with a friend from the wine country (around Napa) in California and had high expectations that this would be an unforgettable experience and it would live up to its reputation as one of the top 100 restaurants in Canada. It was unforgettable - for all the wrong reasons.
In terms of cleanliness, the carpet around our table was dirty and needed replacing. The washrooms were not clean. Someone left a dirty kleenex on the basin, a water bottle in one of the stalls, the adhesive from a panty liner in the toilet and "stuff" was handing out of the dispenser for diapers/sanitary napkins. Washrooms need to be supervised more often and a check list established to ensure this gets done.
In terms of service, the restaurant was clearly understaffed on the Sunday evening we were there. The supervisor was actively involved in servicing the tables and spilt wine on the table while pouring. Instead of providing a new glass, he topped up the glass even though there was wine on the outside of the glass. Not a good idea when you are serving a sommelier! Too many people were providing service to our table and they of course did not know who ordered what when the food arrived. Also, the main course of the tasting menu was not hot when it arrived at our table. There is clearly a problem with the management of this establishment.
The restaurant did provide was with a credit towards the cost of the food and a complimentary dessert, but that was not enough to compensate for the evening. We will not be returning to this restaurant.

What a beautiful lunch at Peller! My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and were seated outside. Gorgeous view and beautiful weather made the experience perfect. We ordered from the brunch menu and everything we had was absolutely delicious. The detail that is put into each dish shows special dedication that goes into every touch. It is a work of art of the culinary world. Our waiter, Jordan, was outstanding. The service and knowledge he provided also added to the great experience. Thank you for a wonderful day!

We had the 7 course tasting menu with the premium wine tasting Our food preferences were accommodated very nicely. The only complaint was the dessert which was too hard to eat. It was served with a crumb mixture(called gravel or rocks) that we couldn’t chew - - 2 of us almost cracked a tooth/crown. This was such a letdown following a near perfect dinner. Our dinner was also a birthday celebration, but the birthday girl did not receive anything special.

From the moment we walked in it was amazing! We had Brad as our server and he was fantastic! Everyone there though made our evening a night to remember! I had to smile everytime a new dish came out, not only because every dish preceding outdid my expectations.... but because everyone who brought us or next course or who interacted with us was genuinely thrilled for us to try the next dish and the next! It truly was an amazing evening! Thank you to everyone at Peller Estates!

My wife and I went to Peller Estates to celebrate the last evening of our honeymoon.
We were welcomed by Rose who sat us at a great table and congratulated us on our marriage (3 days previous). We were offered a complimentary glass of sparkling wine to celebrate the occasion which was a nice touch.
Our server was Jason who did a fantastic job throughout the evening. Since it was a special occasion we ended up opting for the 7 course, chef tasting menu and premium wine pairings.
We were not disappointed with any of the courses or the wines. The food was fantastic as was the wine. Peller also did a great job spacing out the menu to ensure you could enjoy each course. We spent over 4 hours at the restaurant.
Everything was fantastic, at the end of the day was it expensive, yes, but totally worth it for a special occasion.

Our visit to Peller Estates' restaurant was an exquisite exercise in sybaritic hedonism the likes of which we have not experienced in a VERY long time.

OK. Maybe a little over the top. I will tell you, though, it was an idyllic setting on a glorious day, outstanding & adventurous food, and knowledgeable/sophisticated service. Really.

The two us deployed our not-unusual approach of combining the "4-Course Signature Tasting Menu" (with Premium Wine Pairings) with a judicious selection of some à la carte items to share. When we expressed some apprehension that perhaps one of the à la carte items might be duplicated in the Tasting Menu, we were assured that such was not a cause for concern.

Suffice it to say that we really liked this joint. Not cheap but worth a splurge. However, maybe they should update their dining room pictures to show the new chandeliers of grapes hosting "Botrytis cinerea" on their way to Ice Wine, a local specialty.
