The food was superb. The beer cheddar soup is unmatchable. Divine. I’d love the recipe. Dyck excellent. Except the sweet potato tortellini was barely warm. The waiter didn’t didn’t come back in time for us to mention it. But he graciously took off one glass of wine from the bill. This is our second Thanksgiving dinner here. I’d go back again.

The trip to Vineland, even from as far away as Philadelphia, is always worth the effort - even if just for the splendid view. The food is almost always outstanding but is becoming rather pricey. The food is generally wonderfully fresh and, one assumes, locally sourced. The wines are very good.

Not disappointed with chef’s menu and serving and to add to the occasion sun was shining. Beautiful Autumn day at a beautiful location and wonderful lunch.

My husband and I have been eating at Vineland on our annual trip to Canada for many years. In the past the food and service were always exceptional. This year was disappointing. We had an average meal with average service. ..the only exceptional thing was the cost. The best parts of the meal were the wine, bread, and soup. The fish entree was overcooked and not paired well with the other foods on the plate. The chocolate mousse had an odd texture. We had a birthday in our party which was noted on our reservation, but it was ignored by the staff. Unfortunately, this is the last time we will choose to visit this restaurant.

The evening started with us waiting for our table. We were told it would likely be only 5-10 minutes. Most establishments would offer a drink if you wait more than ten minutes , we waited 40 minutes.
The duck confit was not crispy but the other dishes were very good.

Saturday lunch with a group of six. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Overall, food was good. I had the Lake Erie pickerel- the fillets were tasty but small and thin, more like Perch than Pickerel. Was hoping for thicker white and flaky flesh.

I have had several lunches at Vineland but for some reason this time was most memorable. The fact that on September 30 we could eat outside helped, but the food just seemed to have been executed at a higher level than on previous visits. Excellent service added to the experience. Wonderful afternoon. My mom (whose birthday we were celebrating) can’t stop raving about the pork-belly appetizer and duck confit main. Great O’Leary Chard was an excellent pairing.

Overall value poor
Soup ordered was well over priced and no “kick” put some flavour into the serving. The charcuterie board was not what your diners should Expect. Very little variety and quantity non existent Compare with other quality restaurants. This is simply a sampling of what the charcuterie board should be

Sorry but I will not return

It was good experience. The food is very multicultural with variety. It had different types of meat you like, beef, pork belly, fish and a vegan i believe. So there is options for a great lunch experience with the nature view.

The food was extremely good, the service was friendly and efficient, and the terrace location was great on a warm summer evening. Small quibble that having every dish explained in detail when placed on the table was unnecessary, and offering “cocktails” only to discover that the bar was not fully stocked was a little annoying (although the quality of the sparking wine then offered as an aperitif did mitigate this)

It was an exquisite day for my husband and I and our two friends. We started with wine tasting with John (who is so knowledgeable and a lot of fun) and then we had lunch. We sat outside because the weather was perfect. Our meals were absolutely delicious and the service was perfect. It is a lovely dining spot and the food is truly amazing.

This was by far the most memorable and enjoyable lunch we've had in the Niagara-on-the-Lake vicinity. From the moment we arrived until the moment we departed, it was pure perfection! Their attention to detail and service, the cuisine, the wine, and view are unparalleled! We cannot wait to return!

The cheese board was excellent and beautifully served. However, we both found that our mains were too clever-by-half. For example, there didn't need to be chorizo sausage added to my wife's Pickerel dish which would easily stand on its own. As well, I thought it a lapse when we had to ask for cutlery twice in a restaurant that charges top-end prices. A good start here but some work still to do.

Having lunch here was the perfect way to celebrate my birthday! It had been many years since we had last visited this winery. It was first class then and it is still first class now. Sat on the comfortable deck overlooking the lovely vineyards with a view of Lake Ontario in the distance. The service was faultless and the food was amazing. Of course, the wine was excellent.

I will not visit your restaurant again.My wife and I were celebrating our 65th wedding anniversary,with our family and chose your restaurant.This was a very bad choice.My wife had the duck which she did not care for,my son-in-law had flank steak which was not of acceptable quality and he did not finish and , I had pickerel,which was badly overcooked and came with a large mound of beans. The cost of this meal was $400+ and it was not money well spent.I certainly will not recommend your restaurant to anyone and suggest a change of staff may be required urgently.
