Great place for lunch. Unique and exquisitely made lunch options. The Dry aged beef burger and Duck Confit were amazing. The Grilled Romain lettuce salad was very unique and Uber tasty.
They made my burger Keto (no bun). Which was a request they had no trouble fulfilling.
Great service; prompt and attentive; very friendly.
We were a party of 2, made reservations the day before

We had a wonderful meal at the restaurant this past week. Staff member, Tracy, was extremely attentive and knowledgeable about the meals offered on the Lunch menu. Meals were terrific..well prepared and beautifully served. I had the paella which was well seasoned and chock full of seafood. My mother, uncle, and sister were all very satisfied with their meals...the steelhead trout, the burger and the chimichurri chicken. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for any occasion. It was also nice to wander over to the on site wine store for tasting and learning about how the wine is produced.

After 10+ years we visited for lunch again. Even better than we remembered. We sat outside on the breezy patio and enjoyed the vista... lake, vineyards, fruit trees and hills. And the food was as wonderful as the view. We shared the very tasty perch fishcakes appetizer. I had the Panko Crusted Gomes Tomato Sandwich on focaccia and my date had the Chicken Chimichurri Sandwich on sourdow bread. Both were exceptional and large. We enjoyed the Peninsula Ridge Reisling and the Pino Noir and next time we visit we will be buying some bottles to drink at the B&B.

Delicious Food and Great Value in a Beautiful Setting
This restaurant should be on your list if you are visiting wine country in Niagara.
We visited on a Sunday and had their Brunch menu. This restaurant has one of the best Brunch menus in the area. We were a party of 4 and loved every dish we had. The cuisine is creative and delicious and is served by professional and attentive staff. Two of us ordered the Grilled Baby Romaine Caesar with Pingue prosciutto, fried capers, pecorino cheese shavings and anchovy lemon dressing to which we added the grilled prawns so this became our main. Both of us loved this dish as a main because the ingredients were fresh and creatively presented. Another person ordered the Cedar Plank Lake Lois Steelhead Trout marinated in stone ground mustard and maple syrup served with fingerling potato lyonnaise and vegetables and said it was fabulous. Again this dish was beautifully presented. The other person in our party ordered the Grilled Dry Aged Ontario Beef Burger with fingerling potatoes and it too was delicious. They have an excellent wine menu that compliments the food. All of the desserts were creatively presented and “yummy”. For desserts two of us had the Profiterole au Chocolat filled with house made vanilla ice cream served with a raspberry compote and hot dark chocolate sauce. This dish was absolutely delectable; the best profiteroles I have had. Another person had the Lemon Curd Pavlova with rhubarb coulis and mint oil and loved this dish as well. The other person in our party had the Lemon Sorbet served with a chocolate macaroon and enjoyed it. The desserts were a great finish to our meal. Our server, Michelle, made dining at The Restaurant at Peninsula Ridge a fun experience. We appreciated Michelle’s friendly and attentive service. Whether you are having lunch or dinner you will enjoy the fabulous food and terrific service at this restaurant.

Our server Jeannie was delightful, cheery, knowledgeable and friendly. The soup of the day, asparagus was delicious as were the mussels. Steaks were cooked to perfection and the presentation photographed. Not cool to take pictures of your food, but someone insisted. The wine as usual was excellent. Just a wonderful evening.

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!
