    From the start of our beautiful dinner to the end was fabulous. So much detail was presented in each dish created by the Chef. Our servers were so attentive throughout our visit. We so appreciated the Chef’s ability to accommodate my food challenges. We highly recommend this restaurant and can not wait to Return the next visit to Picton.

    Lovely restaurant however for the price I was expecting a bit better quality menu, things like a slice of tomato for 1 of our servings was a bit of a let down. Staff were great which was a big reason for the rating.

    the 5 course meal was beautiful. The basil gelato with perfect tomatoes was surprising and delightful. The pasta dish brought comfort food to hearty elegance. And the Sourdough Pita with buffalo cream was soft, warm, puffy. I can't even describe the bite of food... that told my brain I was having a subtle gin and tonic? It was the best meal. Full disclosure - Chef McInerney is my son. And you should go and be delighted too.

    We have been wanting to go for a number of years. We appreciated the locally sourced ingredients (many from their own farm), and their very own Reisling wine. The pasta appetizer was to die for as was the main courses we selected. Expensive, but worth it.

    Very nice restaurant on beautiful winery grounds. We went there for the 3 course dinner (was actually 6). It was very well presented, the service was great, the food tasted ok. Would recommend for the experience but not necessarily for the taste of the food

    The restaurant is right on the Lake Ontario and surrounded by the winery, blue berry farm. They have the working farm cross the road. Everything is fresh, true farm to table. All dishes were delicious made from scratch. We were there on the weekend so it’s a fixed menu. We ordered the pork chop which was the biggest pork chop I ever had. My husband had fish which is a small piece, the mean course also came with homemade pancakes and blue berry in syrup. Desert was blue berry gelato with crème brulee which my husband said it was the best. He usually doesn’t like creme brulee lol. We definitely will go back when next time we visit Prince Edward County.

    Perfect experience. Staff super friendly but sincere, everyone loved their brunch, very good accommodation of one person who has celiac and another vegetarian. We had lovely weather for patio dining so that may have contributed to the overall enjoyment but its been a long time since I've enjoyed a meal out this much

    Our dinner was expensive but the food was delicious! It was a 5 service meal with one glass of wine each (we were two) cost 315$. The service were: tomato, corn, pasta, fish and deserts. Although we had a nine time, the restaurant is located in a winery by the lake!

    It would be nice to have a menu where you don’t have to Choose three courses. I would like to have more flexibility over the number of courses I want to eat. Restaurant was about 20% full and I think if they had a more flexible menu rather than a prefix you could get more people in the door.

    We visited for brunch and had a wonderful experience. The prix fixe menu was amazing. As it is a farm to table experience it allowed the chef to highlight some wonderful combinations. The food was well prepared and the presentation was appealing. The service was excellent. Our server explained the menu at the start and described each item as it was presented. The sourdough pita was fantastic. The view from the restaurant is stunning and combined with the minimalist decor in the restaurant creates a very calm environment.

    Beautiful backdrop with amazing food and service. We ordered the prix fixe lunch and were blown away by the quality of the main courses. We tried the turkey and pork and were truly impressed. Service was excellent, the waitress was very kind and understanding as we had 2 babies with us. Food was a bit slow to come out, but overall very very good.

    Our server was amazing, so kind and made sure we had everything we needed including bringing extra of the sourdough bread! The food was out of this world- could really tell how fresh it was and the taste was sensational. Lakeside sangria was also delicious. Waupoos exceeded my expectations and I will be back when I revisit the area! 10/10.

    Everything about this place is superb. If you are there for a wonderful lunch, or a great dinner, you will find it here in a beautiful waterfront setting. The food is exceptional, and most all of the ingredients are from the farm and surrounding area. This is a new level of dining for the area. There is a very nice shaded outdoor dining veranda, as well as the octagon shaped indoor dining room. There is wine tasting, and a wine/gift shop. If you are looking for a more casual experience, right on the water, there is a place for that featuring more of a pub style dining experience while sitting on a deck at the water's edge. Currently the main dining room and veranda are serving only a 3 course fixed prix menu at lunch and a 5 course one at dinner. It will be nice when they get back to a full menu. The current choices, while limited, are excellent. This is a destination for a special day trip.

    Waupoos is our absolute favourite place to dine in PEC and some of the best food we have had period in our travels. This is our third time coming and we have now tried Brunch, Lunch and Dinner and each time was exceptional. The drinks, food and service are all wonderful. We won’t miss a chance to eat here every time we are in the county, it’s that good. The menu allows for some preference and choice while also encouraging exploring new dishes and options with the set menu. Can’t say enough good things, the view is also beautiful whether seating indoor or outdoor and the winery and grounds are lovely to explore after. My husband and I first ate here on our 1 yr wedding anniversary and joke that we found it one year too late, it would be a stunning location for a wedding. Try it out!

    Truly wonderful, I can’t say enough nice things. I rarely leave a review But this particular brunch really hit the spot both in the belly and with the scenery. I only took away one star for service because they were too good at giving you time between the courses. it certainly was not bad service, they were wonderful and very knowledgable. I will make a point of returning.

    The lunch menu was a three course meal for $55.00 a person. The salad could have been much better. The greens were not fresh and a bit bitter and all that enhanced the one type of green was a few dill sprigs and a few raspberries. I think they could have done much better on the salad. The other option for a starter was a type of grilled corn salad and it was interesting but could have been improved with a few more flavours to lift the overall impression. The pickerel main was well done, fresh and flavorful. The grilled salty pita type bread was well presented and the saltiness appreciated on the hot day. One in our party had the turkey and another the pasta and both individuals enjoyed their meal. The mezcal mule was a well done cocktail. The deserts, crème brûlée and ice cream were very well done. The atmosphere was lovely sitting on the deck with a view of the water, the garden and the vineyard and the breeze made for a lunch that we wanted to linger over. The staff were professional and service was very good. I feel the lunch was overpriced, however we had a lovely couple of hours on a beautiful summer day.
