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 of 2020 enjoy the pretty patio on the parking lot 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, as well as The Duke airbnb, a fun modern space feating 3 bedrooms and awesome location!

The food and service were fabulous. The Thai curry was very flavourful and delicious. The barbecued brisket plate was plentiful, tender and moist. Service was spot on and friendly without being intrusive. Will definitely return!

Our usual appetizer was the pate and focaccia toasts, followed by a wonderful entrée... duck breast medallions with very nice brussels sprouts with a beet puree. The portion was perfect and the whole experience was very good. Thank you.

Wonderful meal with friends. They offer corkage if you prefer to bring your own selection.
Had the oysters app which I am guessing don’t get ordered that often as the waiter didn’t know what kind they were and they were served without horseradish, spoon for the minuet and were not all removed from the muscles, but they corrected all quickly.
The duck ravioli was fantastic as was the pork belly and duck main.
Wonderful evening

Disappointing. Came here on Valentine’s Day and it appeared the restaurant was overwhelmed. When we entered, there was no one to greet you and you stood around until somebody called your name. We’re seated on the second floor, and it felt like a second-floor dining room that lacked the ambience of the first floor. The poor and slow service dominated our dining experience unfortunately, because the food at the restaurant has always been respectable. We have been coming to this restaurant for probably 15 years when Eric and his mother ran it. Currently there doesn’t appear that anybody is in charge.

This was our first experience at the Wellington court Restaurant. It was evident from the beginning this restaurant is not able to manage the capacity of a holiday celebration (Valentines Day). We sat at the bar when we first arrived due to the line up coming in behind us. No drink order was taken, we were seated at a table opposite to the front door (recommendation don’t sit at that table on a cold night). It was freezing and kept my coat over my shoulders the entire evening. It took almost 20 minutes to be offered a glass of water. When we finally got to order the wine there was no white Pinot Grigio on the menu! Who doesn’t offer Pinot? We did get a rose which was delicious ! Forty minutes in and we were finally asked for our order for apps. We ordered our apps waited another 25mins and watched tables around us receive theirs that was seats after us. Finally the apps arrived! What?? They are the wrong ones! Lots of apologies! We suggested we order our main meal because we weren’t sure how long that would take. When we got our meal finally!!!! The evening turned around from misery to amazing because of the food. We had a young couple next to us and we had great conversation and laughs listening to them at the stage of young parents to our stage as what we would call young grandparents. The evening came to a close and we received our bill and no apology for all the unpleasantries in the beginning no offer to of a small % off our bill for the inconveniences. Just a very large bill. Will we return yes maybe but the Wellington would not be our first place to go for a celebration night unless they revamp their planning and the ability to serve their capacity. If a restaurant is taking reservations then then they need to be prepared to provide the ultimate experience. We would not recommend this restaurant to family and friends due to the inconsistently of our one and only experience.

The restaurant was great and we would revisit again. The staff were beyond amazing. We were stuck in traffic and they pushed our reservation back by 1 hour despite being Valentines Day. The decor and overall feel was modern and fresh. The food was good. The calamari was delish! The lobster was a bit on the salty side for our taste and the strip loin was jus an average streak and sweet potato fries. We had a show to get to and sadly we were unable to taste the desserts. I am sure they would have been incredible.

My one critique would be that anyone in heels, the laminate floor in the bathroom area is like a skating rink .... wow! I looked like Bambi! Also, where the kitchen door is a caution sign needs to be placed. I was almost taken out by the door ... it gave us a good chuckle!

Overall, when in St. Catherines we would go again and would highly recommend.

First time. Although we enjoyed our food, we found the service to be average. It was acceptable but not terribly friendly. At no time during or at the end of our dinner did anyone check in with us as to how we were enjoying our meals. I only ate less than half of my dinner which normally results in being questioned as to anything being wrong, I was asked only if I wanted to take it with me. Disappointed.

We ordered a dry red from Big Red Cellars. Two of us chose a Caesar salad, which was freshly made with real bacon and tasty dressing. The third person in our group picked the beet salad and said it was absolutely delicious. I also enjoyed the seafood dumpling appetizer, served in a tangy broth. All three of us chose the duck breast for the entrée, which was fantastic, served with a side of glazed brussel sprouts, all perfectly done. Dessert was carrot cake and a hazelnut torte with a smooth chocolate sauce, none of which was too sweet. Really enjoyed our visit, and found the service to be timely, but never felt rushed. We really enjoyed our evening and would definitely recommend this.

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 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.
