Contemporary Canadian
Located in the heart of the Niagara Region in the city of St. Catharines, Wellington Court established as one of the top spots. Known for contemporary Canadian farm-to-table cuisine, a clever Ontario wine list + classically crafted cocktails. In the summer enjoy the pretty patio and Friday night musical entertainment under the stars. The second floor of the restaurant, UP at Wellington, is a contemporary private dining + event space available for celebrations and meetings. The food, service and atmosphere are a reflection of the love Erik and his wife Dale, who manages the front of the house, have for Niagara and the hospitality industry. Erik + Dale also operate The Coach House Cafe located at Henry of Pelham Winery, Chilero - damn awesome tacos located at the Outlet Mall in Niagara on the Lake, as well as The Duke airbnb, a fun modern space feating 3 bedrooms and awesome location!

Did not meet my expectations. I ordered the steak which tasted like lamb and was not a very good cut. The polenta was very sloppy and not much flavour - the salad added to the plate made everything taste of vinegar - so disappointed. However, my friend had the chicken and cleaned his plate - it was very good. I also had the beet salad which was awesome and my friend had the calamari with he thoroughly enjoyed. The service was perfect!

The Service and Food were outstanding. The ambience was quaint and cosy with sufficient lighting to set a good mood for myself and the rest of my party. They have an excellent selection of drinks and are very attentive to your needs.

The trout was outstanding vegan entree also yummy. The server was kind but it was surprising to not have gluten free options. Probably would respectfully suggest more attention to that and asking about allergies or intolerances. We were the only diners on this midweek night

The service and the food was excellent! We had 3 courses and everyone exceeded my expectations. Unfortunately, the noise level from a large table in the front room was difficult to ignore. Sometimes, I could not hear my partner. A glass partition or separation from the front room is needed.

Wellington boasts a lovely intimate feel, with sophisticated, modern touches. My server, Shelley, made me feel as though I was being served by an old friend - she was warm, attentive, and knowledgeable. The food did not disappoint! Innovative choices, balanced flavors, perfectly seasoned, and plentiful portions. Will definitely return.

We have eaten here many times but it seems the quality and value has fallen. I ordered a Ribeye steak that was very thin, tough and way over salted. My wife's fish was just ok.

One small criticism...broccoli was very over-salted, could not finish. My husband’s steak as well was quite salty. My husband likes salt but could not finish his steak or fries because there was too much salt.

Superb in every way! Do not miss! Roasted squash entree was subtle, very unusual and more than filling. Duck entree made to perfection. Appetizers were very unique and complimented with flavorful sauces. Desserts did not disappoint. Wine suggestions added the perfect note to meal. Service warm friendly impeccable

The patio is so lovely . What a relaxing evening although some cushion on the chairs would be welcome . I had the Manitoulin Trout and it was delicious . I would have been happy with less grains though and just some simple greens it was so filling . The Kale salad was also amazing

Gotta fix the Cappucino machine . The server did her best and apologized, but wasn't able to create any foam , and it was lukewarm. She didn't charge us and was very apologetic.
You have done such a great job of upgrading and redecorating the restaurant and the patio, but you MUST finish the bathroom updates. The old vanity and sink are tired and weary and don't mesh with the investment you have made to upscale the place.
We love Wellington Court and often recommend it- but please- finish the update on the bathrooms

This was our first time to Wellington Court, and we will definitely go back. Brendan was very personable and knowledgable. Even though the menu was smaller, there were several items that we wanted to try. The wine list was also varied and very reasonably priced. I'm looking forward to returning and introducing our friends to Wellington Court.

Some 30 years ago, before moving into town, my builder took me here as his favourite spot. It has
remained consistently great throughout that time. It has been a while since I have returned, but
it has managed to maintain it’s excellence in ambience and cuisine, both things that I appreciate as an old restaurant operator myself. You will not be disappointed.

Fantastic beef and duck. Need to work on dietary specialities. Gluten-free, dairy-free in each stage of the menu would better live up to this restaurant's reputation.
Would definitely return for the entrees.

Fantastic dinner out! Food was wonderful! Had the Oysters and Tuna Tataki as apps, wonderful flavours! Pasta with Beef and Short Rib special was delicious 😋.
They have a good selection of Canadian Wines, but also do corkage if you prefer something different.
Great service in a old home in Downtown St. Catharines.
Will be back again for sure.

As always, the food here is the best in St Catharines. Service is friendly and prices competitive. A lovely ambiance with the decor refresh. The calamari with candied lemon peel is always a favourite shared appetizer. My salmon was excellent as was my guest's Rigatoni. Sticky toffee pudding is always great for those who have never tried it here; just be forewarned everyone at your table will want a bite!
