Awesome mix of flavours. Every bite was a discovery. 3-course lunch menu for fix price was reasonable and a good idea to discover this winery.

I have been to vineland estates a handful of times. They have never disappointed me there. Service and food are top shelf, however be prepared to pay for that privilege.

Everything was stellar! Pairings were fantastic. We had the spring lunch menu and found it very satisfying.

My daughter is vegan and I wasn’t aware when I booked that only the Spring Fling menu was available with no vegan options. The kitchen responded by making her a stunning, beautifully presented, vegan salad that made our Easter celebration extra special. We were all very impressed. Very much appreciated. The sticky toffee pudding was also extra yummy.

We came for the Spring Fling. The food was very creative and delicious. I had the rainbow trout with the mussels and orange and fennel salad ( it was absolutely delicious). My husband had the Korean short rib, burger w/frites ( he absolutely enjoyed it). Our server Ethan, was very friendly,nice and very polite. Would absolutely recommend this restaurant. We're always treated like family. We have been wine club members for 5 years and will continue do so.

Always one of the finest meals of any restaurant we dine at. Chef Justin Downs and his staff are first class from when you enter the restaurant until you leave. The menu is always creative, using fresh local ingredients with flavours that give your taste buds a real treat. The service staff is on top of all your needs without suffocating you. An Amazing Food Experience!!!

Disappointed in lack of choices on the menu. Food was good, but didn’t deliver the value we were expecting. Dessert was best part of the meal. Bad sign. Service was very attentive & prompt.

Optimally balanced palate with superb pairings and colourful presentation on cherrywood planks are basic achievements here. This restaurant ascends another level into the varied dare say "perfect" food textures (and contrasts) within each dish, in addition to colour, scent and of course taste! Briefly, the beef cuts like butter, fish is crusty on the outside then melts like a creme brulee. Selected vegetables look like radishes and beets but taste like apples and plums with loads of sweetness and barely detectable bitterness. Could go on but truly a high level sensory experience for distinguished foodies! Kudos team!

Truly a wonderful night at Vineland for Valentines Day. A delicious 5 course menu with each dish better than the last. Service was impeccable and wine pairings were spot on.

We had a lovely Valentines Day lunch in a very pleasant setting. The steak was a tiny bit overseasoned and the frites could have used more salt (or salt cellar on the table), but nothing major. If I had one criticism, it would be the sorbet. Although it was a pleasant refresher in the mouth, if I hadn't ordered peach, I wouldn't have been able to tell you what the flavour was.
The service was beyond reproach - very attentive without being intrusive - from the time we arrived to the time we left. Kudos to the staff! The music was a little loud but possibly would have been less noticeable if we'd been there at a peak time.
Over all, it was a wonderful experience and we look forward to returning again.

As it always has been, this is a relaxing venue with great views across vineyards and Lake Ontario, low key attentive service, very good food well plated and the opportunity to pair and taste previous vintages. A reliable high quality go to in a region of many options.

we went there on new years eve and after a very long wait at the border we got to restaurant a few minutes late, but it was no big deal. We were warmly greeted and the server really did go over much about the special menu. She what was on there but kind of just asked if we were ready to order. The food was wonderful the entree was a little on the small side, but it worked. Yes we will be back..

The occasion was New Year's Eve. The five course meal with wine pairings was A Feast for the eyes and the palate! The service was impeccable ( thanks to Karissa and her coworkers). Chef Justin was at his best tonight. This is our fifth New Year's Eve in a row sharing the evening with out-of-town friends at Vineland Estates Winery restaurant. We have never been disappointed. I am adding some pics from our evening. There were two choices for each course. The wines were very well suited to each dish.

The tastes of the dishes never disappoints. Vineland’s chef seems to always have an innovative meal they carefully pair with their wines. What has been a bit of a let down has been the ever increasing charges. When we first went to Vineland a small breadbasket was part of the welcoming. Now there is a $7 charge for about half a loaf of bread to accompany a meal your paying over $39 for. I hope they reconsider that because they are coming across as just like some Toronto money grab.

We found the menus creative and interesting. The waiter took the trouble to warn us of high sodium in the duck confit, and that was true.
I suggest that the soup should be served a bit hot though not boiling hot. But our soup arrived barely lukewarm. And do you have make an additional charge for bread? That doesn’t seem reasonable!
We mostly liked your wine although I found your Cabernet Franc to be a bit too sweet.

Have eaten here before and really enjoyed it. Summertime, outdoors is amazing - incredible view - but it turns out cold, rainy nights indoors in November are great also. All four of our group had the chef's tasting menu, with wine pairings, and enjoyed it immensely. One of the best meals I've had in Niagara and my friends call me a "Toronto Foodie" (for whatever that's worth).

More exclusive menu options, but the times we've eaten there were memorable and satisfying. Not for the faint of wallet, but the fairly priced five course option was a decadent blend of flavour from a wide array of sources. Consider that, while browsing the substantial wine list or local beer options and it all makes for an excellent experience,...
