    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.

    Pickerel is delicious as is the Crème Brulée and sourdough pita. Excellent service and the view is absolutely lovely. I wasn't crazy about the Pinot, though.

    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.

    Wonderful dinning room, nice environment. Unfortunately, the food was not a match. Sour dough pita was a great start but it was downhill from there. The beef was tough and favourless. The staff kept asking how was everything but didn't seem to notice the problem with yhe food left on the plate. Very disappointing

    Absolutely amazing. Reservation for 3 same day was easy on Open Table. Seated immediately with care to where would be most comfortable. Ambiance was perfect. The wait staff was really knowledgeable in the wine selection (expected) and we really enjoyed the Shiraz. There was a fixed menu with 3 courses selected for you and the main had 3 choices, plus a prepared dessert. The server explained every detail about each 'farm to table' dish as it came out. We didn't feel rushed to finish or delayed in receiving the next course. Having 3 people, and 3 choices for the main, each of us selected a different meal. They were all incredible. The chicken dish was a wee bit overdone but only so slightly. The braised short ribs and pickerel were cooked to perfection. Dessert was so good that we were dreaming about it a few days later. Their cappuccino was incredible It may seem a strange thing, but even the water was delicious. I don't normally drink tap water as there is always a flavor, but this was refreshing, clear and so good I didn't need lemons to adjust. At the end of the meal the chef came out and spoke with us about some of his process and how long he prepares for different dishes. Some dishes take years to prep as the farm to table experience elevated to this level requires careful planning for canning, curing and growing very specific ingredients. The ONLY suggestion that I feel would have made the experience/meal better would have been to offer a set wine pairing (at a cost) with each course to better bring out and not overpower the flavors so carefully planned out. As an example, the (albeit delicious) shiraz would have been too heavy and robust to serve with the pickerel, but the Moscat paired perfectly). The cost for the per person meal was a bit higher than expected from the description online, but totally worth every penny. It wasn't unreasonable or higher than the value of the food. Definitely will return. 5 stars overall.

    The farm to table experience was wonderful. The chef is to be complimented for creating such delightful courses. The second course was based on strawberries was to die for. Other courses were also rich in flavour & texture. The server was attentive, welcoming & informative. Beautiful setting overlooking the lake. We’ll be back

    The food is absolutely phenomenal. This was our second time coming to eat at Waupoos. We’ve now had the dinner and brunch during different seasons and both were exceptional. The service and atmosphere is laid back and comfortable and between the natural setting of the water and the vineyard and the lights, sitting inside or outside is beautiful. We really can’t say enough good things, it’s our favourite spot for a special occasion or meal now. We will be back and continue telling everyone we know!

    The winery was beautiful. Seated on the patio overlooking the lake on a sunny Saturday we enjoyed the brunch. Overall, the food was all nicely presented and tasted good which is what I would expect for a high end venue, but it wasn’t stellar. I did have the pickerel as my main dish and it was cooked to perfection. My husband had the pasta dish and he felt it was fine. Asparagus salad was good and the crème brûlée was good. What was outstanding about this place though was the Outstanding Service from Damien. He was friendly, knowledgeable and gave amazing service. This winery is a picture perfect place to enjoy a beautiful day!

    Pretty much everything was ok, except one of the main dishes, the lamb, wasn’t good at all. We were not able to cut it, even less chew it. It was exchanged for something else, but no apologies were offered. It happened to at least another customer from what I know.
