                                Westcott is our favourite winery in the Niagara region. The unique simplicity and rustic ambiance is a never ending welcome. If you stay to enjoy dinner, you will never be disappointed. The quality and presentation of the amazing menu will curb your taste buds each and every bite. See you soon John and Cindy D’Ambrosio

                                Fabulous food! Really enjoyed the deviled eggs, edamame guacamole, chicken sandwich and veg pizza! Raw oysters served on cold rocks were creative and delicious! Wine pairings were perfect as well. Despite the rain, we were cozy in the blankets and dry and happy.

                                The ambiance is very good, with a view of the vineyard. Of course, there are many restaurants with similar or better ambiance so it was not an outstanding ambiance. The food options were few, and the food was average. I had the hamburger, which was a regular hamburger. There was nothing special about it and had minimum condiments. The hamburger did not come with a side, and I ordered a side of 'fries', which was potato wedges covered with feta cheese (which I love), a bit of salsa and lots of garlic (too much I would say). Wine is mediocre. We had just stopped for wine tasting elsewhere, and the wine at Westcott was water compared to the wine we had just tasted. There was noise that I suspected there is a shooting range close to it, but it may have been an event of sort nearby so I am not sure if the noise level is high all the time. We didn't mind the noise though. The waitress was kind. I don't think I will go back.

                                Hi TOGUY, Thank you for your feedback. Given that our restaurant overlooks our vineyard, we consider the ambiance pretty unique. As for the burger, we use a house made cheese whiz and Mac sauce aioli as condiments. Perhaps you had requested these be removed? Additionally, we and many of the surrounding wineries use machines called bird bangers which emit a loud noise to scare away the birds from eating our crop. We do this to maintain the quality of our internationally award-winning wines.

                                We were expecting a more comfy place without the noise of gunshots and better menu option. Wine was really expensive as I think we get only one ounce in a glass for $14.

                                Hi Zaita, We are sorry to hear that your experience was not up to expectations. We and many of the surrounding wineries use machines called bird bangers which emit a loud noise to scare away the birds from eating the crop. This, while a bit loud, is a precaution so that we can maintain the quality of our wine. Also, we are not sure how you were charged $14 for 1 ounce our as we use a 6 ounce pour. $14 is our most expensive glass of wine and we feel that this is a good value for the price.

                                Celebrated my parents 62nd anniversary with a trip to wine country including lunch at Westcott. Great location especially under the covered patio. Our first wine choice was not available but we still enjoyed a nice bottle of Pinot Noir. Overall the food was very enjoyable with lots of good tasty selections. I was disappointed with the pizza which I expected to be thin crust and prepared in the wood oven- instead it was a rather thick, soft crust with little if any wood oven cooking and while it was nice to have local peach as a topping, they were not charred. Oysters were on special and were very good but not served on ice and had to request hot sauce. Cheese and meat board was excellent as were the devilled eggs, bread and butter ( butter was served hard??), edamame guacamole and chips were tasty and cauliflower dish was exceptional . Service was very good. Price point was reasonable for the quality of food and ambiance. A few minor issues but overall I would certainly go back and would recommend Westcott be part of your itinerary

                                Everything about our experience at the Patio at Westcott Vineyards was perfect and beyond! We arrived just as the sun was setting so everything, the tasting room, the rustic outdoor kitchen, the garden and the vineyard, was bathed in gorgeous golden light, much like the food and service! This winery has more charm than one could dream of! There were a few kids quietly playing with lawn games, and adults sipping on glasses local wine as they watched the sun go down- pure magic. Ricky + Olivia always impress! They served up an incredibly tasty feast for our party of 7, some of which is grown table side in their garden, and the rest from local farms- we love their focus on sustainability! Allergies were taken seriously, and dishes were adapted to suit. We loved the hand riddled ´Brilliant ‘ sparkling, the Reserve Chardonnay and the Estate Pinot Noir. The whole experience was hands down the highlight of our trip to the Niagara region!!

                                What a perfect way to end the weekend! Delicious wine and food, gorgeous views, great service, a relaxed atmosphere on the covered patio followed by settling into a comfy muskoka chair to take in the beautiful sunset!! Highly recommend.

                                Food: The food was okay, but not amazing. Pros: flavour was good. Cons: size of the portion, price and lack of side dish. Ambiance: Beautiful. You’re overlooking the vineyards and it’s cozy under the tent. Noise level: Very distracting. My husband and I were surrounded by two larger tables of 8 people and then approx. 5 tables of 2 people. The large tables weren’t the issue, as whatever they were saying was muffled. However, we could hear everything being said by some of the 2 person tables. The acoustics carried from under the tent and it was difficult to have a quiet conversation with my husband without adding to the noise level. Would we go back? For wine, yes. For food, no.

                                We were rushed out by our server. Had our bill dropped while we still had our food and never had our plates cleared. Would have gotten more than one glass of wine each if we were asked. The whole experience only lasted about an hour before we were out. Would have loved to stay much longer and enjoy ourselves but the feeling of being rushed out made us feel very uncomfortable.

                                Menu seems very limited. I used to enjoy meeting friends for lunch snacks or dinner. This visit proved disappointing in food choices. Even the meat and cheese board was not up to standard. I however will still come for a glass of wine.

                                The lunch we had was lovely. The scenery was beautiful and the server was friendly and helpful! We tried many different dishes from the cheese plate, deviled eggs, chicken, surf and surf, pizza and shrimp. All were very tasty. We really enjoyed the nettle cheese. The only comment the table had was that they wish the chicken dish came with a side. We had a few bottles of rose for the table! A pleasant experience and will be back :)

                                We thoroughly enjoyed your meal on the patio this past weekend! We have dined at Westcott numerous times since Ricky and Olivia have taken over the patio and have never been disappointed. We also enjoyed their meal during Fireside Fridays in the winter and the brunch they did for Mother's Day. We love their take on a Hawaiian pizza (the peaches make it!) as well as the edamame guacamole. The beef tartar was also very good. The wine was excellent, as always. Westcott is offering great wine, awesome food and a fabulous view. As locals it is most definitely a go to for a relaxing afternoon or evening out.

                                This is a great place to come for a relaxing afternoon; whether it be on the lawn sipping wine or under the canopy enjoying some food.

                                The ambiance was outstanding, but as far as the food, you were actually ordering an appetizer not a main course. I had the Surf & Surf, which was three shrimp and the smallest piece of fish imaginable ... It tasted amazing, but really it was just an appetizer for $25
