Come for the wine, stay for the bistro

The attendant in the tasting room was very nice. On her recommendation we ate lunch at the bistro and we were not disappointed. The food at the bistro was awesome. Best grilled cheese ever!

We accepted the advice of a friend - cancelled reservations at another well-known bistro and went out for the season opening at Hillside. The meal was simply perfect. Apparently we were treated to a new menu and we savoured the experience. Be prepared to experience something unique and bold. The creative presentations, the flavours of the meal and the perfect...

I have been to this winery before with a group of women on a golf/wine tour that I was escorting many years ago. It is lovely with a wonderful bistro. Unfortunately we were there in early season (March 22) so they did not have the bistro open. The wine tasting was very good and they waived the fee since it... More

I have been for lunch several times and dinner once, all have had a good meal. Although you can find a burger on the menu for the majority it is not your normal type of lunch fair and go with an open mind to experience something different . A culinary experience. its a little pricey but what wineries aren't. They... More

this is a great looking building with the spire and surroundings to set it off perfectly. the views from the spires are great and the wine is lovely, not a red fan but even I enjoyed the reds on offer. actually visited august 2013 but only just getting round to reviewing (sorry)

In the winter you need to rely on the fresh food choices rather than the breathtaking view of the summer. We have eaten at Hillside many times and the quality is always very good. Wine prices are reasonable and it's a chance to do wine tasting before you even sit down for dinner. Lunch is also good with a variety... More

This is our "We Did It!" for friends, family and everyone who supported our Challenge Athletes Go-To Monday Night Celebration spot over the last 5 years. We keep going back, and Hillside keeps up with our eclectic group... foodies, wine geeks, wine snobs and wine lovers... never disappointed. By the fireplace, or outside, our large group (one large, long table,... More

Always love the Hillside Estate bistro even in October when sitting inside is necessary. Good hardy food choices for lunch included burgers, sandwiches and homemade soups. Great bottle of Hillside Pinot Noir topped out the meal. Good service, beautiful setting by the fireplace in the restaurant. It is an event to come to Hillside but be prepared as the bistro... More

It was a cool, windy October day and we found the ambiance at this quaint winery bistro to be very inviting. We especially appreciated the warmth of the fireplace! It more than made up for the fact there is no view from the dining room. We found the wine pairings recommended by the winery were perfect matches for our choices... More
