Hostess was not at all warm or friendly. ..I would say quite miserable. We were seated in a high traffic area out to the patio and although it was our anniversary, noted on the reservation, it was not even mentioned or acknowledged in any way. Terrible table with the staff in and out serving food on the patio. Very limited choice for lunch, very small portions., very expensive for what you got. The gravlox was terrible, I passed it to my husband not to waste it...tasteless and very strong fish odour, unlike smoked salmon.
They started with a complimentary pate. I bit down on a hard pellet and brought it to their attention..they explained it was cartilage which turned my stomach. Almost cracked a tooth.
The manager apologized and said he would "do something for us". At the end they credited the bill for one appetizer.... $16.00. With tip the bill was $176.00 for two appetizers and two entrees and a bottle of wine.
We go there every year as a treat and in the past thought it was lovely...special. I can say that generally speaking the staff were "flat" and disinterested in making it a good experience.
Such a disappointment.
We booked a wine tour and topped it off with lunch at the restaurant
Voyage de vacances
It was a great experience. The estate was gorgeous. The best part of the tour was the ice wine cellar. Would recommend this to anyone! We ate at the restaurant on property and it was an experience. Service was amazing and the food was good!
Food was very good but the portions extremely small unless you want to fill up with dessert. We unfortunately had some diabetics and apetizer plus entre is too small. Very, very good food though.
Amazing food, each course was so thoughtfully prepared and presented. Wow, it did not disappoint. Pricey, but worth it for a special occasion. Service was outstanding and the wine pairings were excellent.
We were served complimentary sparkling wine to begin as it iwas a birthday celebration.
We felt special.
Food was excellent!
I took my mom to Peller for lunch. I have been here in the past as well and the service is always stellar. We had live music this time, and the view on the patio was spectacular. Food is delicious - very nicely prepared. I would return in a heartbeat.
The lunch at the Peller Estates Winery Restaurant was good but not great. The food did not live up to the atmosphere of formal white linen tablecloths and Parisian-style waiter uniforms. On the four-course menu, the gravlax had texture but no flavour. The variation of eggs benedict was good. The cream in the pasta with cream sauce and truffles was in evidence but there was no flavour of truffles which was the principal attraction.
Pretty location but certainly did not merit the eventual cost. All in all a disappointing and over-priced outing.
Encountered some difficulties trying to be seated on the patio. Reservations are not taken for the patio specifically although tables were set aside for parties yet to arrive. Eventually we were accommodated but I still don’t understand the initial problem.
Party of four had the five course tasting menu paired with wine. Food was well presented and tasty but a bit lacking compared to passed visits. Felt service was average based on price.
Great ambiance and well maintained.
Will return based on past experience but recency bias would suggest to go somewhere else for better value (Two Sisters, Backhouse, Pearl Morsette)
We enjoyed a lovely chefs menu on the occasion of my birthday. It was the centrepiece for our travel to Niagara on the Lake and the service, food and wine did not disappoint. The servers were knowledgeable about the food they served and also provided answers to our questions about the property in general. My only "surprise" came with the cost of the pasta course we added. It was absolutely delicious but did feel the additional price was a little dear. Otherwise, I recommend this to anyone looking to have a wonderful food and wine experience, and delightful evening.
As always a 5 star experience. The service and food were exceptional as always.
Everything was perfect! Will definitely be back.
Great place to relax after a few glasses of wine and food was exquisite. Love everything about the restaurant
As usual, surpassed all expectations- local produce with brilliant wine pairings- we will visit again
We celebrated our anniversary at Peller. We thoroughly enjoyed the blind tasting lunch and wine pairings. The experience topped off our special day. Would definitely recommend this experience!
They made our anniversary very special. Beautiful view of the the vineyards.
2016 Signature series Chardonnay was disappointing, radically different from 2015 which buttery. Also affected the lobster linguine which uses Chardonnay cream sauce. Still very good.
The dinner tasting menu was amazing!
We expected an other memorable gourmet diner with excellent wine pairing... this had been our past experience! The wine did not disappoint but unfortunately this time, the food did!
The portion sizes are very meagre (apparently, that is à la carte for you) and there aren't many choices on the menu.
The waiting staff are extremely polite, professional and deferent. The surroundings and general ambience are fantastic and have a romantic air.
Final destination for our visit to Niagara Falls. First we did the wine tasting and after dinner with wine pairing. Service and knowledge of the servings team was excellent. It was a night to remember!
We celebrated our anniversary at the restaurant. Food, service and ambience made for a very special evening. Big thanks to the wonderful team, both in the kitchen and the servers.
Having eaten here a half dozen times, I was disappointed by the new prix fixe approach. It was very limited and significantly over-priced. The service and ambiance was wonderful, but the food did not match my expectations. I don't mind paying the price, but I expected a better experience for the investment. (As an example, the squab was not rare and tender - it was under-prepared to the point of being bloody.)
Also, when one is paying $350 dollars for dinner and wine for two people, one expects a clean bathroom. I had to leave the bathroom to ask for soap, toilet paper, and paper towels - all of which were missing. I know that the bathroom is also used for the tasting room and shops, but I encourage the staff to check it periodically.
Very good, but a bit slow. 1.15h to get the entree.
A superb blind menu! Dinner here is an amazing event—we spent about 3.5 hours and loved every minute. Food and wine are incredible. Sit out on the patio and enjoy the sun setting over the vineyard!
This is such a classy restaurant. It was a sunny day so we had lunch on their lovely patio. The food is outstanding - brilliant chef and the service was excellent from Ashley. Great atmosphere and couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience. Perfect for an interlude before our show.
We had a family dinner there. The experience was great
Slow service. Our reservation was at 1:30pm and their service took 2 hrs for the four course preset meal. The pasta was tasty but the white fish was a big disappointment - no flavour and looked aweful. I would not visit again.
Vraiment une expérience culinaire magique; menu dégustation avec accompagnement de vin! Dans mes meilleures expériences!
Amazing dinner with a creative menu and lots of remarkable flavours in the Chefs Selection/Blind menu... Great service from the restaurant staff and a fantastic overall experience.
We opted for the Chef's tasting menu with wine parings. Our meal was wonderful and the servers did a great job explaining the food and wine to us.
Food and wine pairings was excellent, ambiance and view also.
We have never been disappointed, hence the reason we always return.
I went here with my fiance to celebrate his birthday. We took a wine tour, which was really cool. Their ice wine is delicious, and you go into the ice cellar and put on jackets and can take really cool pictures. we went back the next day and had their prix fixe menu for lunch, and it was DELICIOUS. I highly recommend this place. We went to Trius, which was great food but the Peller estate is much nicer.
One of the best dinner experiences I have ever had.
Always an amazing dining experience. Our server Audrey was simply amazing
Harvest dinner was wonderful
We made a reservation for a late lunch and were told it was a prix fixe brunch because of a wine club members weekend. Wish we had been informed when we made the reservation as we wouldn't have made a brunch reservation at 2:30pm and also would have planned our day differently. Normally there is a la carte options though. Then we were seated in the lounge where we were ignored for 15 mins before we were acknowledged despite several staff walking past us. For the price, the service did not measure up.
We had a charcuterie board and wine in the lounge and it wasn't the best I've had.
Had Sunday brunch. Lovely location among the vineyards.
The food was delicious and well presented and the service was excellent.
A well prepared and very interesting tasting menu matched to excellent wine pairings. The service was superior and the food was well timed with out any sense of urgency to finish the meal.
I can highly recommend this restaurant
