Peninsula Ridge Estates is truly a world class wine and culinary destination catering to guests who are looking to pair a relaxed and casual atmosphere with an incredible dining experience. The property is stunning, with breathtaking views of the Niagara Escarpment, Lake Ontario including the Toronto Skyline and of course our pristine vineyards. The restaurant is set in our historic "Queen Anne Revival" Victorian mansion perched on the brow of the Beamsville Bench and features a great outdoor patio for dining during our long summer days and nights.



Our culinary team takes great pride in offering the ultimate dining experience using fresh locally grown produce (often grown right down the street) served by skilled, professional and friendly staff. Our reputation for epicurean excellence is often one of the main reasons why people choose The Restaurant at Peninsula Ridge.

Fantastic service. As our venue for our wedding next year, it holds a special place in our hearts and we cannot wait to get married in September. The staff are amazing and the food is to die for.

We were there for Sunday brunch. The scone was one of the best I’ve ever had. However, in all places that serve proper scones, they are served traditionally with cream (whipped). Not so at Peninsula Ridge. Disappointing! The frittata I ordered was bland, dry, over cooked and hard to cut through. Very bad. The salad served with the frittata was delightful. I also ordered a hit chocolate and could not taste any chocolate. It tasted like hot milk. This is my first bad experience at Peninsula Ridge.

Been back several times since the first time for lunch on patio a few years back. Have introduced several other people to this wonderful spot and extremely great food.
service was wonderful though a little rushed even though we mentioned we were in no rush whatsoever. Look forward to their summer version of mussels with bee pollen. Delicious. Definitely a keeper.

We waited what appeared a long time between courses. The food was good despite not pleantiful but quite pricey. First time our family of four ate a three course meal and there was not a spec left on any of the plates. This was our third visit despite a consistant feeling when lesving... good food but small portions and quite pricey.

A memorable dining experience, celebrating our 50th. Anniversary at Penninsula Ridge. My only disappointment was the fact that when I made the reservation, I indicated we were celebrating our 50th.
I thought we might have been presented with a glass of sparkling wine or even a dessert on the house. We even told our waitress we were celebrating our special anniversary. I guess it isn’t their policy. So many restaurants do acknowledge special events in some small way.
Wonderful food, wine and service and we will eat there again. We wer given a lovely table at the front of the foyer overlooking the vineyards and the lake.

I had the Lake Huron Pickerel and the portion size was a single strip about 5 inches long by one inch wide. At $34 this is not good value. I can go to my local restaurant (Jakes Oyster Bar and Grill) on a Wednesday night and five pieces of pickerel for $18.99.

I have to admit my wife had the same meal and her portion was bigger but still not what I would expect.

Beautiful setting, restaurant, food. Menu items prepared very well, all delicious. Excellent service by Tracy. On this evening we ate on the patio, which was a comfortable and pleasant dining experience. We asked for help in ordering and being served efficiently in order to get to a theater performance, and the staff accommodated this request graciously.
