Delicious food- we especially enjoyed the 3 course prix fixe menu.
Unfortunately service (or kitchen) was a little slow so we spent more time there then we planned.

Whenever we tour the wineries, Ravine is the must stop place to sample the potent potables and sit down and enjoy an amazing lunch. The menu items are fresh and delicious, the staff well versed in the menu, and excellent service. I will come back again and again and will always recommend Ravine to everyone.

Unfortunately it was -30C and the restaurant was cold and drafty. It would be ideal in the spring summer and fall and the braised ribs were excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Ravine Winery Restaurant. They welcomed us with champagne to acknowledge our 40th wedding anniversary. The service was pleasant and attentive. We were offered a tasting prior to selecting our Sauvignon Franc with dinner. We both enjoyed the parsnip soup. I had the delicious burger and my husband enjoyed the beef rib dinner. We shared the “deconstructed” tiramisu for desert. A memorable evening and worth the drive from Toronto!

This was my second time here. The menu changes regularly and everything is just wonderful. One of the people in the group is a vegetarian and there were lots of options.

When we visit Canada from the States, this is usually our 1st stop for lunch on our way into the country. It just helps us set our minds to this beautiful little oasis of Niagara wine country and prepares us for a restful vacation ahead. Good food, good wines, great service. Highly recommend.

We tried the restaurant at Ravine after hearing many recommendations.... the food was very good although we found the servings (especially the potatos!) too large, which made the presentation a little less than what might have been possible. The highlight was the charcuterie platter, which was spectacular. They use their own pickled products a little too heavily through all courses although they are very tasty, so if you like pickled veggies you're good!

We had a group of 6 and had reservations for 12:30 on a Monday. We had a cheese and charcuterie board to start with and lunch entree after. The only small complaint was that the cheese and charcuterie boards took about 45 minutes to arrive, which seemed like a long time to us. The restaurant was not that busy when we arrived, but did fill up after. The food was delicious and the entree's came out in good timing, everyone had a great time. Would definitely head back again.

We celebrated our anniversary at Niagara-on-the-Lake and Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery was highly recommended by a friend. Excellent cuisine served by a friendly and professional waiter who made wonderful suggestions. Due to the weather and our arrival in the evening, we were unable to tour the grounds, which we heard are beautiful.

You can not go wrong with anything on the menu or with the wine list. The historic building and wonderful decor really make this a spot to behold. Service was amazing from the managers to the busters playing a part in making our night wonderful. It is the quintessential spot for a true Niagara experience. Arnagar.

We were greeted by chickens upon our arrival and I knew immediately that I was going to enjoy my experience at Ravine Vineyard.

Chef Ross is definitely one of the best chefs in Niagara, a region already boasting some exceptional food, and his seasonal, locavore-friendly menu at Ravine is excellent. Book well in advance because Ravine is modestly sized and hugely popular. It may get a little loud, but the atmosphere is comfortable and unpretentious.

An absolutely stunning restaurant attached to a great winery/farm. They raise their own hogs and create their beautiful chacuterie board filled with pickled vegetables also from their gardens. The smoked pork chop over grits with purple cauliflower purée and roasted vegetables was the best pork chop I've had, and the pumpkin and sage stuffed tortelli with cranberry compote was a vegetarians thanksgiving dream. The view over looking the vineyard was stunning as the chickens roamed free entertaining all the window diners. Service was friendly, prompt, knowledgable and also uninvassive. Jerah(sp?) was absolutely fantastic walking us through the menu and explaining what it is Ravine Vineyards is all about. An absolute must try in wine country!
