Wine tasting on the terrasse with a fabulous vue. But they serve the 3 samples st same time…results: wine too hot!
We also had dinner on the terrasse; service was okay.
Food; extra salty; we had the burrata to share; it was really salty; even the bread had salt on it !!??
The Rack of lamb; really good!
Lobster linguini; so salty; and not much lobster; just a lot of pancetta…
Very dispointed.

We were expecting more about that place… it is a beautiful place inside and outide but we won’t go back.

It was amazing! All the staff were so welcoming and made my anniversary picture perfect. The Rosé wine was delicious and it paired well with the charcuterie/ cheese board we got, we were stuffed! So happy we reserved our table.

Service was slow. The lighting did not work on the patio and it became very dark. The server poured out half a bottle of wine into 2 glasses. I asked for other glasses to be brought out and got two wine glasses hot from the dishwasher.

Pellar estates winery restaurant was hit and miss. The service was very good, fast and efficient.

The food however was somewhat disappointing. We’re foodies and cook a lot so this review aims to be constructive. We started with 3 appetizers. The watermelon and heirloom tomatoes with goat cheese panacota was ok. The watermelon gel was unnecessary (already watermelon cubes on the plate), would have preferred an herbed oil to give it punch a bit. The panacota was delicious though. The grilled octopus was served cold (would have preferred hot) and there were too many lentils on the plate, making it more a lentils dish than octopus dish. The dried tomatoes on the bottom really had good flavor. Their signature lobster linguini is really good though, just good comments here.

For the mains we had salmon and prosciutto wrapped chicken. The salmon was way too cooked to provide crispy skin probably but we don’t eat skin as much. The sides and the icewine soubise were great though. For the chicken it was essentially the contrary.. the protein was delicious and perfectly cooked, but the mustard spaetzle didn’t have any mustard and they were pretty tasteless. The dish eats dry and would have benefited from a jus or a sauce.

The wines were good, we loved their sparklings. Overall, it’s a good place, the menu is creative but the execution was just lacking. The setting on the patio next to the fountain is very romantic and again the staff was great.

One negative… the ladies washroom was remarkably untidy. No at all up to Peller standards.

Pretty good. We come here all the time so its nothing new to us. We always do the 5 course tasting and it was delicious. I like it here because of the in door and out door seating. The gardens are beautiful and at least I can let my toddler run outside let off some energy before our meal. Over experience is always good here with great and friendly service.

The restaurant has a short menu. We opted for a mix of appetizer and first course offerings. They were very good and quite sufficient. Our waiter was excellent, helpful, informative about Peller wines and food, but didn't hover. We had a grand evening.

Not a bad experience overall but was shocked at the cost of a glass of wine........ $21 for a nine ounce glass of red. The bottle retails for just $2.95 more. Certainly not good value there. Close to a three hundred per cent mark up. Unrealistic in my view. Won't be back.

I recognize that Covid has raised prices everywhere but lunch for 3 with 2 glasses of wine ( at $21 each) came to $319 before tip.

Food was okay but nothing special. Won't be back.

When we first arrived we were half hour early but the hostess wouldn't seat us until the "rest" of the 4:30 reservations were seated. There appeared to be only one and after 15 minutes I went to ask again. Restaurant was not all that busy so don't know what the issue was.

We sat outside since it was a beautiful day and the scenery was nice. We ordered 2 appetizers with a glass of Peller Sauvignon Blanc. The wine was fair but not great. My wife's lobster linguine was delivered but not mine (marinated grilled octopus). We waited a couple of minutes and they had to go get it. The linguine was nothing special and there were some lobster shell bits in it. My octopus was delicious.

For the main course we ordered the prosciutto wrapped chicken and the Ontario rack of lamb. But were delicious and well presented. We had a bottle of the private reserve cab sauvignon which was very good and went well with our meals. Only complaint was there seemed to be very little goat cheese with the chicken.

Dessert was strawberry shortcake and salted caramel cheesecake. Both were delicious and a good size for us (not large).

The server gave us a bottle of the cab sauvignon to compensate for the errors during the first course which was much appreciated.

We will certainly be going back to this restaurant.

First time back @ Peller for dinner since the Covid closing. The food & patio ambience overlooking the vineyards did not disappoint. Simply superb on both counts. Service was a bit shaky with a new server (who advised he was in his final week of training). Overall a great experience - can’t wait to return. Thank you Peller!

My husband and I chose the Peller Estates winery to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. The food was outstanding and we enjoyed the ambiance within the dining room. The service was outstanding as they ensured all of the details even to a complimentary toast with a delicious rose were followed.

Beautiful property, very good service. Unfortunately the food is lacking. Salmon was overcooked, beet salad was beautiful and fresh but lacking flavour, heirloom tomato salad conspicuously lacking in tomatoes, and the most disappointing was the octopus starter - very deceiving as it wasn't the lovely meaty tentacles but rather what my culinary wizard mother thinks was the sac. Have eaten a TON of octopus in many places but have never seen octopus served this way. Shame - the lentil, olive, pepper accompaniment was delicious.

The only thing we didn’t like was having to wait, along with 5 other groups of people, at the concierge desk for almost 20 minutes. Our reservation was for 7:30 and we were seated just before 8:00.

Service was exceptional. I have fractures in my back and found the metal chairs. They provided an extra seat cushion for me to lean against so I was more comfortable.

I found it a bit costly, $260. for two which included a mid priced bottle of wine.
