The cheese bored was not worth the money. Spent twenty dollars for 1/16 of a brie, three sausages, a slice of another cheese and a biscuit. Not worth 20$

Wine-only experience on the patio. Wines, as usual, were delicious (Stratus White, Unfiltered Chardonnay, Stratus Rose and Tollgate Rose). Outstanding conversation and service provided by Natasha. Will be back.

Ben was amazing as explaining the wine and food with which it was paired.

We were a party of four and felt very safe in the current environment.

It was a great experience.

Very informative private tasting. We purchased a few wines that we would have never tasted if it weren’t for the experience. Can’t wait to pair these wines with the appropriate foods. Definitely will return.

Great wine tasting experience. Excellent wine selection. Petit Verdot is indeed a great wine of Stratus Winery. Our wine tasting pro Jack was excellent, we learned a great deal from him.

We went there to sit outside and try some glasses of wine. They were so accommodating with our guests and the staff were great. The view from the patio is beautiful and they have a lot of outdoor social distanced seating. We were there on a Saturday and there was a DJ playing some nice chill music and there was also a food stand where we could buy hot dogs or fries.

10/10 would recommend stopping here, the wine is also amazing. We had the Gamay and the Cab Franc!

Only providing 1 hour time slots despite no notice provided for this and no evidence of this in the booking confirmations. Our server notified us only 10 minutes left of our reservation and after he bought out a full glass of wine for each guest so we only had a short period to finish our wine. Terrible service, should have been upfront on the seating.

Booked a lunch reservation a week in advance for 1PM, but once they seated us they told us they had run out of food. Poor communication on behalf of stratus, and we felt obligated to order drinks as they only notified us of the lack of food after we were seated. Won’t be returning.

Did not have a meal there. So, could not really rate the food. We were there for wine by the glass and we had the chips. Those were good.

The Rose was excellent.

Staff do excellent COVID protocols. Felt very safe.

Can’t wait to return.

I booked via Open Table for our champagne wedding anniversary- got a 2:30pm reservation and when we got there we were starving! The waiter informed us there was NO food - that you had to call ahead and book a “picnic box” but they were sold out. So we had a bag of chips and left and spent another hour wandering around Niagara trying to find a table at the last minute!

Why would this restaurant be on Open Table and imply it was a restaurant when it isn’t? Why wouldn’t Open Table ask me to call ahead to book a picnic box?

Super disappointed. Big dent in our big anniversary plans.

No tastings offered when you book a table. Only 5 oz glasses. We skipped the food. It looked pre-made. We reserved a table to overlook the vineyard and a large tent was being installed and blocked the view completely. Bad timing and disappointing.

We made a reservation for a glass of wine on the patio with a light menu. The server was very nice. The seating area had a beautiful vineyard view. Unfortunately as we were seated to our table the chair pillows were a bit messed up with crumbs on one of them. We noticed this more than we might have normally being that it’s Covid times. Either way it was gross wiping off someone’s crumbs. Our white wine was very nice - not crazy great. The food was really disappointing. It was a snack menus but with the snacks they offered it didn’t really need a menu, not much. So if you book plan on just a glass of wine. We left thinking - worth checking out but not in a rush to go back.
