Ravine Vineyard Winery Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
I was ultimately very disappointed with my experience at Ravine. While I am a big fan of their wines and tasting room I was surprised by what felt like a lack of care and attention to almost every aspect of the restaurant. For a place that has a reputation of being romantic and charming, to not have candles on the table at dinner was a huge disservice. It actually served to make me want to eat and get out, rather than stay a while and enjoy my wine and my date. Then of course I thought, well don’t worry the food is sure to be redeeming of the dull ambiance but aside from a tasty cheese board (no mentioned of where the cheeses were made), it felt like I was transported back in time to some wacky Canadian grandmas kitchen, and not at all in a good way. Firstly we were disappointed by the fact that the burger and short rib we had seen online weren’t offered since they were only doing brunch... (it was a Sunday at 7:30pm and this was not explained online or at time of booking). I found pairings to be strange - take for instance 3 nacho chips with cheese melted on them to be paired with trout gravlax ... or the peanut crust (the menu read hazelnuts but I could have sworn it was peanuts) on the pork loin. The pacing of plates was off for ys too, waiting 10-15 mins between courses. We took our desert (chocolate peanut tart which was good) to go because I was feeling so saddened by the experience and just wanted to crawl into bed. Of course this tart came on a plate to our table after we had already paid and we proceeded to wait what seemed like an absurd amount of time for it to be placed in a box. Ultimately I was very surprised based on what I had heard of this restaurant from friends and the reviews. I would be hesitant to recommend this restaurant after my experience there.
Great Saturday afternoon lunch was had. From the front of house staff to the servers. All three courses from their prix fixe menu were absolutely delicious. I had the Heirloom beet & goat cheese salad to start, beef short rib as my main and the sticky toffee pudding for dessert.
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.
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!
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!
