My boyfriend and I came for a wine tasting and lunch before heading back to the States. We ended up doing the tasting, enjoying a three course lunch with a bottle of wine and brought a bottle home. Everything was spectacular and we were both very impressed. We would absolutely return again on or next Canada Trip.
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.
The service was terrific: knowledgeable, courteous, prompt without being intrusive. The food was very creative, beautifully presented, and amazing!
Overall very good.....one meal was a little over cooked.......two a little undercooked.....but still quite tasty! Great value too
Great value, 3 course meal with lots of variety. Excellent meal.
We loved everything about Ravine! Winter price fixe menu with wine pairings was outstanding! Cheryl (our server) was awesome! The food was delicious and just the right portion size. Will definitely be back!
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.
Our entire party was over joyed with the service and exceptional food.
For all of us it was our first time there, but definitely not the last!
Always great food & wine! We will be back! The food is local and menu is seasonal. This is a farm to table restaurant in St. Davids - about 12 mins from downtown Niagara on the Lake. Reliable choice for a nice dinner out.
Love the Ravine Vineyard Winery Restaurant!!! Hadn’t been there for several months, so it was great to see the same high level of food choices, great service and, of course, excellent wine!
Great night. From the service to the amazing cuisine. The meal delicious and tasty. Overall Everything was great.
Ravine is always a wonderful dining experience. The food is fabulous and well portioned, the service is excellent and the atmosphere very comfortable. Take advantage of the winter fixed price 3 coarse dinner
Very knowledgeable and helpful service. Generous portions and also very good.
Always Five Stars, This restaurant delivers wonderful meals. Beef short ribs were fantastic.
Excellent lunch, staff and ambiance!
Can’t say enough about Ravine Vineyard! One of the best places I have been to in years.
Everything was absolutely perfect! I'd go back in a heartbeat. Each dish was expertly crafted and my sister's 40th birthday was an unparalleled success!
Great service, great wine, great value. Glad we decided to go there for this birthday get together.
Jason our server was very courteous and informative. We shared a lovely meal and bottle of wine for my husbands birthday.
Jeran was a wonderful server. Food was great and atmosphere is always friendly!
