This was my first time dining at Peninsula Ridge. The grounds are beautiful and with the winery on site, it makes for a great lunch experience. The weather was beautiful so we dined outside on the patio. It was very nice. We shared a salad and both ordered the mussels which came in a delicious and interesting broth which had honey pollen and lavender in the ingredients. The brandy latte we finished with was amazing. Overall a great experience!

Sunday lunch at patio in a long weekend, beginning of the spring/sunmer season. The view is lovely. Although most of the servers are new, the service is good. Food and wine are better we expected, especially the burger, mushroom salad and quiche. Will to visit again.

First went to this restaurant over a dozen years ago...Went this year for Valentines Day and was so pleased with the food, we went again for my birthday. Service was excellent and attentive, food once again excellent and I like their wine. I had their better Chardonnay (very nice), my wife loves their Rose. We've decided to put this back in our regular rotation of restaurants, price for quality of food and service was good, too!

Our experience here was excellent, the food was presented in a wonderful manner and the ambiance was great. The only thing I was surprised at was no offering of ground pepper or parmesan cheese.

It was a sunny but windy day and we decided on a car ride through the countryside. We didn’t want to drive on the 401, 407, QEW or highway 6 or 8. Just back roads from KW to wherever. Looking at the map and open table we came across Peninsula Ridge. We hadn’t been there in ages but the rating was still excellent. After a very long drive it did not disappoint. The menu was small but everything was delicious. I would especially recommend the mussels with lavender. We look forward to going back again but perhaps we will take the highways next time.

Enjoyed our family Sunday brunch. They had an issue in the morning but called us immediately and kept us apprised of the situation and ultimately it all worked out. Really appreciated the communication. We had the best table on the ground floor by the window. What an amazing view of the vineyards, Lake Ontario and Toronto on the horizon.

The food was awesome and when we weren't happy with something, they quickly made it right. The homemade scones are very yummy.

Great meal, great service, great location. We come a couple of times a year and always enjoy it.

Have been at Peninsula a couple times before, with good experience.
This time, Saturday lunch, the service very very slow with restaurant half full; and
the food mixed...don't have pizza or crab cakes - cold and dried out.

My husband and I went for dinner. I received a gift card from work when I retired in June. This was our first visit to the Restaurant.
The food was amazing, the service was awesome, and the atmosphere was wonderful with the great views of the properties' rolling hills. As the restaurant is in wine country, the wine was superb. The chef did an amazing job with the beautiful main courses, salad and presentation.
We will definitely go back.

Tracey, our waitress was superb from the moment we sat down to the very end of our meal - gave suggestions that were spot on - she was overworked as she was the only waitress for the entire ground floor. Food was superb - we started with the crab cakes to no disappointment then, my wife had the surf and turf (always delicious) and I had the pork belly w sea scallops also delicious - we opted for the walnut tart desert and that didn't let us down at all w complimentary drink from Peninsula Ridge - the evening was a wonderful night out - we will definitely be back in the not - too - distant future !

Superb lunch. Great menu choices. Excellent presentation. Friendly and prompt service. We received a gift card to visit a while back and we would definitely return. Reasonable prices for this type of higher end restaurant. Beautiful view of the lake from our table and elegant dining atmosphere! Thanks to Jeannie for making our lunch with friends one to remember!

We went early on a Saturday and got a very private table just off the front door/ greeting area.
The wine (their own) was excellent. I had the chicken, probably one of the best I've had. I was really pleased. My wife had the fish dish which was also very good.
We hadn't been there for about 12 years, and after our meal decided this was bad judgement on our part and we are looking forward to going back. We actually returned the next day to purchase some of the wine that we had!
Excellent overall...thanks!

Overall it was a great evening, the Surf and Turf was great. I thought being a winey restaurant the wine by glass was a little overpriced @$15.00 ... when the same wine sells in the winery for $24.00.

My wife and I decided to try the dining room following a recommendation from a friend of mine who lives in Etobicoke and was familiar with the Winery and the dining room.

It was a very enjoyable evening. The food was very good, the service was attentive. The only negative was the location of our table (which we had chosen BTW) because it was not well lit. The ceiling lighting was behind my wife, and my chair backed into the fireplace. We hadn't wanted to be in the middle of the room, but I guess we chose the table without due care to the lighting.

We also didn't know there was additional seating on the second floor, which might have better met our expectations. Next time perhaps.

We sat upstairs next to a drafty door. Our food was delicious and well plated. Our service was poor. Neither our waitress nor the bus person checked on us during the entire meal. I had to ask for a refill of my glass of water and my question was met with a quizzical and unpleasant response. Not five star dining at its best when only the food is superior.
