We were celebrating a birthday,however, we were not asked the reason for dining. The food was fantastic and good service. Our server was a bit too earnest but he was accurate with the wine description and food offerings

I tried the tasting menu and my fiancé had the farmers feast. Right off the bat our server was constantly trying to up sell all of our choices. I understand that he was only trying to do his job but it was a bit much. Unfortunately none of our food came to the table hot, and our food took a very long time between courses. Our plates were not cleared in a timely fashion. The wine prices were good, however we felt that we did not get good value for our meal portion of the dinner. Great decor and ambiance. We were seating much earlier than most tables in the restaurant but some larger groups came into the restaurant after us, and this is what most likely held our courses up. If you are looking for a great tasting menu experience we suggest Vineland estates over Trius.

Great meal Tasting Menue was great for my Wife.
My Mushroom appetizer was slightly over room temperature. The flavour was excellent.
The Lamb dinner was too over done. I ordered Medium rare but it came to the table as almost well done. Again the flavour was good.

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.

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.

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.

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. :(
