Meritage wine is delicious. Charcuterie was tasty and a great variety, just needed more bread :)
Thanks Jennifer B! You can always ask for more bread - we are happy to offer it. :) We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Wine & Food were both excellent!!!! Staff are all extremely friendly!!!!! Our server Alysia was absolutely wonderful!!!!
We had a wonderful brunch experience. The softly played live music was a nice touch. Our food was so good. The mimosas were divine. Will definitely be coming back.
From start to finish, everything was fantastic. Really enjoyed the service, and brunch was to die for.
We really enjoyed brunch for their sparkling wine debut. Their menu has something for everyone and the food and wine were delicious.
As always wonderful service and outstanding brunch not to mention best wine in the county!
Really disappointed in this winery. The service was so slow. However there may need to be more staff. We sat 15-20 minutes without a drink.
The food even though unique had very little taste and flavour. The price for “À la cart” food was a bit much.
The most expressive flight ever. $15 for 4, 1 oz flights. Said it was paired with food. But it was two pieces of cheese and two crackers. Most places in the area charged $6 for 4, 1 1/2 oz flights.
The atmosphere was not great, no warm fuzzy feelings here. Felt like a pub rather than a winery.
Go next door to the North 42 winery.
Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit to CREW. It is our goal to provide a unique, flavourful experience with warm hospitality to all those who enter, and it appears that, in your case, we failed to deliver. We do feel that we offer great value in our flights by pairing with Ontario artisan cheeses and local preserves, however, it does come at a small extra cost. I am glad though that you did enjoy another area winery, and hope you can give us another try.
Fabulous wine, food and atmosphere !
Delicious appetizers and the best wine in the region! The service is super friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend a visit!
This is the first time we came to CREW for a meal and absolutely loved it. All the food was delicious, the service excellent. Would highly recommend.
Great service and knowledgeable waitstaff! Thanks for having us.
Our meal was quite disappointing. Only five minutes after our appetizer came and our dinner appeared as well. We were not allowed enough time to sit and enjoy our appetizer at all. My husband enjoyed his fish tacos but I found my steak to be over cooked. It was definitely not medium-rare and it also seemed to be a bit chewy. It’s not clear (at least to us) on the menu that you must also order sides with your meal - all that came on my plate was the steak. It was a good thing we ordered an appetizer or we would have still been hungry. Dessert was just ok.
I was very excited about dinner with it being our 28th anniversary but both of us were disappointed that we had not just stayed home and bbq’d our own steak.
Thank you for your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed the ambiance and service, yet sorry to hear of your disappointment. Our menu is not designed for traditional dining; we encourage diners to order a variety of items a la carte to experience a unique array of flavours and textures throughout the visit at a casual pace. We do try to communicate this with our guests once they are seated. I will speak with our CREW to ensure they are doing so. We hope you can give us another try with this in mind.
This was our second visit to Crew. The first time we only had their wines which we find better than the wines at other wineries in Lake Erie North Shore. This time we went for lunch. Service and food outstanding. We visit the wineries quite often and think this may become our favourite spot. Do yourself a favour and visit sooner rather than later.
Excellent afternoon with the girls..great food and best wine around..
I have told many friends already..
Staff are very helpful and sweet..thanks
The food at CREW is incredible! Everyone should experience
Great food and excellent wine! We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and tastings.
Great wines produced here, especially reds, with knowledgeable servers that give you information. Patio was one of the nicest in the region.
Always a pleasure to come to crew. The new facility is fabulous!
Both men in our party of 4 ordered the Eggs Benedict. They said the meat didn't taste like peameal bacon and the hollandaise sauce didn't taste like the traditional hollandaise.
I had eggs and steak panini and the other diner had huevos rancheros. Both these dishes were very good. Ambience and service were great but half of our party was very disappointed about the food. I would recommend CREW but would tell someone about the Eggs Benedict
Hi Deb, Thank you for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed the ambiance and the service. I am sorry to hear that two in your party were disappointed. Our Benedict is a spin on the classic; we make the peameal bacon in house with fresh pork loin and use blood orange in our made-to-order Hollandaise. They are therefore quite different than store bought or high volume products. I will ensure that our Servers know to communicate this to guests to avoid further confusions. Cheers! Michelle T, GM
Enjoyed the new brunch menu. A beautiful view of the vineyard. A wonderful new retail area with some delicious cheeses, jams etc. They had live music in the background on Sunday for brunch which added to the ambience.
Wonderful evening, hostess and waitress very attentive and the food was fabulous!
The food was excellent, but I wish the menu could be expanded.
Enjoyed our lunch on the patio at CREW. Staff were friendly and helpful. Fish tacos were delicious. Nice wine, too!
The live music was a wonderful surprise and definitely enhanced our lunch experience! The fig flatbread and the cheese board——highly recommend!
Absolutely love the new building And their set up . Patio up front and the back has a great atmosphere with grapevines on both sides . Food was excellent and the service was friendly great !
Very tasty wines the flight offer is great but the server forgot our little baguette snack until we asked for it
We had a great time celebrating a birthday at Crew. The food was fantastic! As was the wine and service. We will definitely be going back.
Excellent service and food! We appreciate all the effort the staff put in to making our anniversary special! We will be back :)
We were very disappointed with the. service. We were seated at our table and then we were forgotten about. After 20 minutes my husband got up and had to ask the person at the tasting bar for someone to take our order.
I am sorry to hear about your poor experience with our service and do understand how frustrating that must have been. While we strive for excellent hospitality, it appears that in your case we missed that mark. I do appreciate your bringing this to our attention, as feedback only helps us grow stronger as a team. Please accept my apologies on behalf of our CREW. We do hope you can give us another try. In Service, Michelle T General Manager
Outdoor patio overlooking the vineyard with a glass of cab sauv.
A little bit of heaven.
Excellent service that was very knowledgeable. Olive tapanade an amazing condiment. Had the cheese tray and 2 flights of wine. Excellent combination, quiet and inviting atmosphere on the orchard!
Lovely evening, fish tacos were excellent and the 2016 Meritage was excellent. Took a case home with me.
A great patio to relax on a hot summer day with a glass or two of wine.
Fantastic wine, delicious food, excellent service. Such a beautiful spot.
Lovely ambiance, good food, great service. Really appreciated the manager spending time at our table answering questions about the wine.
Lovely spot; great facility. Enjoyed the wine. We did not eat there, so cannot comment on the food.
We decided to visit CREW for our anniversary lunch.
After sitting down, we ordered a flight (which came with food pairing), a glass of wine and shareable flatbread.
The waitress did not bring out the pairing with any of the wine, but rather 20 minutes after all of the wine was served (every other table received their food between wines as advised by the waitress). A great amount of time went as we watched other tables (that arrived after us) receive their food, flights and pairings) the waitress comes to our table and says "would you like your bill? or to order food?" I stated "we did order food, you haven't brought it to us" she confirmed "oh yes" followed by two guesses of what we ordered. She went to check on the food and claimed it was being put in the oven.
Again, patrons that arrived and ordered after us were receiving their food. The waitress then asked if we'd like it "TO GO if were on time constraints" followed by " or I can bring out in a few minutes or just wipe it from the bill"
Terrible Terrible service, unapologetic, no attempt to remedy the disappointment or future customer relationship.
Hello, I'm sorry to hear about the poor service during your visit, especially on such a special day. We are currently rebuilding our team after recent closures. Saturday left us understaffed and was a challenging day for our young team. I'm truly sorry that came at your expense. We will discuss your visit and take some time to train on service standards. We take hospitality very seriously and I hope you can give us another try. Please contact me personally when you wish to return. Michelle T GM
lovely wines, paired with little plates...a great experience
The employees were very friendly and the scallops were delicious! We will definitely return.
Wonderful food & wine in a beautiful atmosphere. Great place to bring friends.
