Wellington Court Restaurant + Catering
Always outstanding - food, service, ambiance - a gem.
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.
The fish special entree at $30 was too expensive for lunch.
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.
Great food and service. However the music on the patio was way too loud.
Great spot for dinner. I am a big fan. The pasta dish was amazing. Cheers
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
Made reservation last minutes and arrived just before closing time. Chef was nice to reopen kitchen and served us a fabulous meal.
Amazing experience and made us feel comfortable. Food was delicious and they were accommodating of our special needs.
Great food, attentive service and nice atmosphere
As always excellent service, food and drink. Our favourite St.Catharines restaurant.
Wonderful and friendly. Excellent value. Celebrated wedding anniversary and was treated very specially.
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
Fabulous meal with old friends. Respected one of our six with her food allergies. A gem mostly overlooked.
Our food was delicious
Prices way too high on the menu
Not enough food.....
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.
This was our second visit and brought a group of 5. It was as great as first visit. Wonderful attentive staff great food!
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!
Always expect the best in food quality, imaginative menu and dedicated professional service - a must for any visitor to Niagara!
Great quality food and service, and it is such a nice atmosphere!
Our overall experience was pleasant, but we are both vegetarian and found the vegetarian main to be very weak. Cauliflower "steaks" do not visualize as a pile of cauliflower florets...which is what we were served. Truthfully, I'm not sure if we would return, even though everything else was nice.
A local gem. Been going for years and always very consistent. Have never had a bad meal/ experience and Dale’s great smile puts my evening over the top.
Have been a customer since Eric was a waiter. Still think it's the best in St. Catharines.
I must say it's the first time I've been to Wellington Court. Shelley greeted us at the door and sat us at our table. She explained the changes to the menu and served us our drinks very quickly. We had a couple of appetizers and I must say the calamari were probably the best we've ever had. the caesar salad was large and again very very good. I had the lamb shepherd's pie and not only was it filling it was great. I expected ground lamb but no it was so tender you could cut it just using your fork. My wife had the cod and enjoyed it along withe rapini and rossato. Although I would have liked to try the pickerel it must be just coming into season. All i all I would highly recommend the Wellington Court restaurant to everyone.
Totally excellent in every way!
Some fantastic food, and great atmosphere. Despite the higher prices, the food is absolutely worth the price you pay.
Continues to impress on every visit
Great starter, carrot, apple soup with candied pecans with fresh focaccia. Super wine selection, including some I have never tried. Enjoyed Ravine’s Sand and Gravel blend. Yum!
I tell people that wellington Court is the best restaurant in St catharines but we were a victim of a bad seating situation. Out for a special occassion dinner, we (a couple) were seated beside a large family with two small children who shrieked and hollored most of the time. There were 2 other tables for two in the adjoining room that we could have been offered.
The service was very good and Ross midgley's cooking is suberb. Unfortunately the evening was marred by a total lack of ambience.
Great experience . Smaller menu but excellent choices something for everyone. Chef is outstanding and accomadation. Service was excellent. Will go back and recommend it.
We had been recommended to this restaurant by friends who eat out a lot, so I'm not sure if it was just a bad kitchen night or its regular standard.
It was a prix fixe menu from Valentines Day - already disappointed because no where on its website did it say that. Limited choices of food - good for restaurant's bottom line, not so much for the diner - unless you're Pearl Morrisette and it's been lovingly curated.
Do we give it another try? Not sure
Beautiful food, exceptional service, overall just an amazing experience. We will be back!
There were some unfortunate experiences that were had on the night in question. Though we showed up on time as per our reservation we had to wait for our table still, and there is really no where to wait. We had to dodge patrons and wait staff while people navigated between the upstairs and downstairs. Also I ordered the lobster bisque, as well as the prawn and lobster risotto. The bisque it would seem broke, and while flavourful as it was runny and not characteristic of a bisque at all. I had to send the risotto back the as the rice was not cooked and basically had to watch my partner eat while I waited for them to make another one. The entire experience was a more negative one than positive one, and because of this I feel I will not be back.
Great food and service. All four meals were excellent.
Had a great time at Wellington court. I was dining alone and my server was attentive, friendly but knew that I was also looking to be independent and have my space. The food was excellent, but the chicken a little too salty for my taste. Their split pea soup was amazing, however and if they have it as a feature on the menu I’d highly recommend it. Also great cocktails!!!!
