About the restaurant

Since 1998, when we opened our Niagara farm, home and hearts to our guests, The Good Earth Food and Wine Co. has been a haven for discerning food and wine lovers and an oasis for the senses. Our gardens, orchards and vineyards provide a spectacular backdrop for wine and culinary experiences that reflect all the good things the earth has to offer.

About the restaurant
The Oaklands celebrates simplicity, the season, and a sense of place. We connect people to place through respect for our history, our land, artisans and our commitment to warm hospitality and service. The restaurant takes its culinary cues from Niagara’s ingredient driven cuisine, rooted in the breadth and depth of global French culinary influence.

The beautiful setting encourages you to lose track of time enjoying stunning vineyard views and our sister property, Peller Estates, while enjoying a menu that changes with the seasons.

The service was exceptional and the interior decor was very elegant. The outside dining view of the vineyards is spectacular; however, we chose to dine indoors because the humidity that day was very high. We both ordered the scallops with asparagus, which were absolutely delicious. However, I thought the entree might have been hotter when it arrived. We have dined a number of times at Oaklands and have always enjoyed the experience. We look forward to returning again!

This is a stunning location, the patio overlooks lake Ontario, the setting is casual. The food is pub classics with a Canadian flavour twist. Enjoyed the starter of coconut crusted prawns, Maple flavoured trout with green beans and warm potato salad for main.

It was nice to be able to book a larger group online. The restaurant is cozy but has a very chill vibe. They were accommodating, the music was good, the food was good, and prices reasonable. It was a great first experience for our family.
