Vineland Estates Winery Restaurant
Awesome venue and good food and wine. That's 50 characters at least
Came for the winter lunch menu. Food was delicious and impressive. Great value for the price.
Service was fantastic. Food was well done; wine was decent.
First let me say that the service was good, although she did make a few errors and forgot a few things..but she very apologetic and did her best.
The food on the other hand was disappointing for both of us. My partner had the soup and it was quite good although the waitress said it came topped with sweat breads and it came out with cracklin....a bit of a difference. I had the pork belly and it was okay but kind of bland.
We both had the quail which was a little over cooked and dry.
The cheesecake for desert was good but tiny. I am all for smaller portions but that was ridiculous.
For my tastebuds....it just seemed like the chef was trying to do too much, too many flavours on one plate that just did not work synergistically.
Cappuccino was cold, they replaced it but the barista obviously did not preheat the cups.
The atmosphere was good, not great....large open rooms and brightly lit. Its a shame because it is a beautiful location.
Excellent food! The food was delicious and was plated well. Would recommend to all my friends. Can't wait to go back. Best meal in Niagara Region.
Always an amazing meal! Love the ambience, the view and the service!
Had a lovely chef’s dinner the other night. Food was excellent with many interesting combinations and very nice seasonings. We enjoyed it immensely .
Wonderful, inventive cuisine with attentive staff and great wine.
Everything was perfect!
The food and service were amazing!! For sure, one of the best restaurants I ever been!
Fabulicious menu. Great value. Outstanding food as always
Ok. Not to sure where to start. Although it seemed expensive we chose to have the chefs special. What a great choice. The food was fantastic. Every course that we had was amazing. Service was great and we had time between each course to relax. What a great night. As new members to the wine club this was an extra bonus. Each course came with a different wine tasting which as a wine club member was included. Great dinner, great service great value. Thanks to my wife for making this an amazing night. Love you
Had the gnocchi. Hands down - the absolute best meal in a very long time. Seriously - chef's should win awards!
Staff were attentive. Food was excellent, and the portions were perfect. The atmosphere was wonderful! My husband and I both enjoyed having lunch while enjoying the beautiful view of the winery, as well as, sitting around the woodstove afterwards! Loved it!
Our experience started off on the wrong foot. When I booked our reservation for Valentine's Day I noticed that they had two menus. One was themed for the 'special day' the other was an a la carte menu which was less expensive but also had vegan options which are mandatory for my diet. I selected two a la carte reservations but when we arrived we were told there was no a la carte menu and we would be served the themed dinner which was nearly twice the price as the one I thought I had selected. When our dinners arrived my wife's included items like steak and oysters while mine was basically pasta and salads. We paid the same price for both meals and had a bottle of sparkling wine which we were told was on sale but for which we were charged full price. Granted the food was good, although no one asked my wife how she preferred her steak prepared (She likes well done. It was very rare) but it certainly wasn't much of a value and frankly I thought rather pretentious with more concern for the chef's tastes than for the guest's. All in all the dinner was an experience but not one I will soon choose to repeat.
We have come to this restaurant for our special occasions since we moved to the area The food is beyond excellent. Servers know the food.
Just a lovely experience all round
Outstandingly delicious courses as beautiful to look upon as they are to eat! Wine pairings complement each dish elevating the entire dining experience. Knowledgeable staff provided exemplary service. There is no better way to celebrate with the ones you love than dinner at Vineland Estates Winery Restaurant!
We do a yearly trip to Niagara-on-the-lake every year for a wine weekend with a group of friends. We always go up on Thursday just to have the chance to have a dinner at Vineland. We have never been disappointed. We usually do the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings. The chef is inventive, the ingredients are unusual and the combinations of flavors are marvelous. We have never been disappointed. It is pricey but worth every penny!
Amazing. Loved every aspect of our meal. Will definitely be returning.
Very quiet beautiful views from f the vines and Lake Ontario. Service was super and food was tasty and well prepared price was less then expected. Will go again wine was also exquisite had the 2015 Cabernet Frank and purchased a couple of bottles to take home.
Some of us ordered the 5 course chef special. Course 4 the strip loin steak I believe it was called was the size of a small medallion. 2 bites and done and I cut it in 2 only to make it last. We were shocked and laughing when we saw it. The smallest steak we ever saw. I ate a marshmallow earlier bigger than that. At least plate 3 small medallions so it looks like you’re getting something. Won’t go back for dinner there after that. Lesson learned the first time. Maybe a cocktail in the summer for the view. That’s it. I didn’t take a photo of it but I so wish I did. You have to see to believe
I had been to this restaurant maybe 10 or more years ago for lunch and thought it was "OK". But Friday night's 5-course meal with wine pairings was exceptional. Service was fantastic. Will definitely not wait another 10 years to return.
I've always enjoyed my meals at Vineland Estates. They have consistently good meals and use local, quality ingredients. I recommend the chef's tasting menu with a wine pairing if you can. This night, our 5-course meal started with some oysters as an amuse-bouche, a pear and parsnip bisque, a chilled lobster and shrimp salad on frisee with double-smoked bacon, some delicious ricotta tortellini, sliced ribeye for the main, and a blackberry panna cotta for dessert. The classic wine pairing was free if you're a member of their wine club, and it's worth signing up, even if you just do it at the table.
Suggest changes to the lighting—lower interior intensity (understand you want to ensure dishes are displayed appropriately) but it’s too bright with the contrast of the darkness outside. Suggest installing exterior lighting to compensate. This would create a much better ambiance.
Our experience at Vineland Estates Winery Restaurant was exceptional from beginning to end.
We were seated at a lovely table directly in front of the fireplace on a COLD winter night. There were many appealing options on the menu, both for appetizers and mains ,but when our waiter explained the “tasting” menu for the evening we all decided to go for that. We were not disappointed. Every course had lots of different flavors and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Definitely plan to return and would highly recommend this special place.
Fantastic meal. We tried the 5 course with wine pairing. Everything was so delicious and beautifully prepared. This restaurant never lets you down and the service was amazing. Very quiet and romantic.
We had New Years Eve Dinner here, just my husband and I. It was a busy place - as you can imagine for this time of the year. However in spite of that, the staff were kind and conscientious. The Chef came out and greeted us at one point during our meal. The vista in winter is great, can you imagine it in the spring / summer / fall? Thanks to all for a memorable occasion.
Excellent food and superb service. The food is prepared with great care and expertise. Each dish is a superb marriage of flavours. Wine pairing is great and all from the winery. Has a beautiful view on the estate.
The food and wine were excellent. A quiet atmosphere among the rolling hills and vineyards.
This was a 20th anniversary celebration and it was awesome as always!
Vineland never disappoints. It’s the only restaurant in wine country that serves some of the best food in the area. We always make a pit stop when in the Niagara region for some winery hopping. This last visit, we stopped by after visiting Niagara Falls with our guests from Australia, and everyone was raving about the food for days!!
First rate as usual
Excellent food and service. Our group ordered a variety of meals including duck breast salad, short ribs, gnocci and the chefs 5 course special dinner. All were outstanding.
Not good experience at all.
Server Andrea was exceptional! Creative presentations. Generous pours. Lovely view - clean glass, floors, tables ... exceptional attention to details.
Amazing food, amazing wine, beautiful location. Can’t say enough good things about Vineland.
Excellent food and nice ambience..great background live music playing
Vineland is a favourite of ours. The tasting menu paired with special reserve wines is pricey but phenomenal! Each ingredient is selected purposefully and with care. The presentation is creative and appealing. The wines are unparalleled. The service is always top-notch.
This time around I had the short-rib and wasn't a fan (the one I make at home is better) but I'm just being picky and this is the first time in our many visits that I encountered a dish that wasn't to my taste. I didn't complain, but I'm sure that with their excellent customer service that if I would have they probably would have handled it really well... like I said, I was just being pick and sometimes you just pick the wrong dish..
My cured duck breast salad appetizer, on the other hand was possibly the best thing I've ever eaten. We will certainly be back, I just won't order the shortrib next time.
Food is unbelievable and the wine is always amazing. The service is above and beyond. I’d recommend Vineland Estates to anyone looking for a high end experience, you’re guaranteed to be impressed.
The service was amazing from the moment we walked through the door. We did the chef’s menu and wine pairing. Every dish that came out was better than the last. Our waiter took his time explaining each course and wine selection. Wasn’t our first visit and certainly won’t be our last!
