Trius Winery Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We have high expectations of the chefs menu because his creations have always pleased our palates and left us wanting more though the portions are always satisfying. This visit was slightly disappointing since the vegetarian parsnip entree felt a bit too sweet for an entree.
Appetizers and desserts were amazing, as expected. We will still go back as this is the first time we have ever felt like this about a dish.
Thanks to the chef and service staff for their excellent service!
The ambience was very nice. It may have been a bad day for the chefs. We had the icewine pear desert and it was basically a chocolate covered ice cream stick. The description was very misleading. There was no lunch menu and the main options for the brunch were limited. I was not happy with the lobster cakes. I don't want to judge a nice restaurant from one visit but we were not happy with the food options and the quality of the food.
We had our family Christmas dinner at Trius. Excellent food, unique dishes, great ambience and unrushed service. All the staff were friendly and were knowledgeable of each dish and described them well. I would highly recommend for special family events. We also had a lovely wine tasting before lunch at the tasting room and gift shop.
My husband and I went to Trius for a quiet dinner before the chaos of the Holiday season started and it was perfect! Food was delicious and plating was beautiful. Trius wine is always fabulous! The lights inside and outside set a classy ambiance for Christmas. Staff was pleasant, kind, and knowledgeable about the menu, especially with Celiac options. Highly recommended.
Food and service make for an exceptional experience. This is FIVE STAR quality at an affordable price. From end-to-end, these folks really know what they are doing and make you feel welcome. Staff are patient and knowledgeable, and the food is absolutely sensational. My wife and I are eager to return for a third time.
The wait staff were pleasant and the food was delivered at proper intervals so that we had time to enjoy each course. The pacing was perfect - did not feel rushed. The chicken 'main' was not well represented on the menu - it read as a pasta dish but was in fact much more than that. Great night out.
Absolutely amazing locally inspired Niagara cuisine and experience!
We have dined at the Hillebrand Restaurant for the past 6 years for our anniversary and it never disappoints.
Staff went above and beyond to celebrate our anniversary this time with complimentary house Brut and signature mini dessert platter.
Can't wait to go back again next year!
Last minute reservation based on previous ratings. One person got the tasting menu, the other a la carte. Other then the deserts, the food was very unappealing and inedible. Perhaps the chef was away. Very disappointed in the experience. Can not recommend to anyone.
As usual, Chef Dodd didn't disappoint! Awesome lunch with awesome friends - the perfect way to spend an afternoon. I sampled all the entrees - flatbread with pulled pork and chorizo, Mennonite chicken, and lamb shank. All delicious with outstanding wine pairings.
My wife and I and two friends had lunch at Trius a few days ago. The meal was excellent, service great and the wines that they paired with our starters and main courses were some of the best I have ever had. All in all a great meal. Gluten free not a problem. They even had warm gluten free bread from the oven for me to enjoy.
We went for Fabulicious and it was. Our only complaint...We ordered a beer to start and mentioned how we wanted to enjoy it prior to starting our tasting menu offerings with wine. Our waitress made us believe that she would take care of it and there was no need for our concern of being served before the appropriate time, but within 10 minutes our wine pairing and appetizer arrived. So there we sat with tempting food staring back at us while we tried not to rush our first beverages. :(
We were somewhat disappointed with our experience at Trius. The service is very friendly, we were seated soon after our arrival and the decor and ambiance were excellent.
We had a 3 course meal with wine pairings. Both the appetizers and desserts were quite good. One of the mains (the fish and chips) was good but the lamb shank was tough and chewy. It was also quite bland.
The wine pairings also left something to be desired. The wines we were offered as pairings were almost exclusively at the lower end of their range. The exception was a Vidal ice wine that was served with one of the desserts that was excellent. It would have been nice to have been offered their Trius 'Red' blend which is lovely or one of their wild fermentation or barrel fermentation whites.
While I really like Trius the winery, I do not plan to return to the Trius restaurant.
