Fabulicious!

Went with a friends for the Fabulicious lunch. As always, the service was impeccable. I had the soup which was lovely and not too big. Served in a coffee cup...just the right size for me. Also had the burger which was really a large slider. Again, just the perfect size with fresh cut fries... read more

We did only have lunch and would have welcomed the opportunity of having brunch or dinner on another occasion

We recently braved the frigid temperatures and blowing snow to eat at Trius winery in NOTL on Valentine's Day and thoroughly enjoyed their tasting menu. There were two prix fixe menus named appropriately "I'm Yours" and "Be Mine". As there were about 5 courses altogether, each course was the perfect size to savour but was not overwhelming. My main course... More

Absolutely perfect Birthday surprise. Food was excellent and the restaurant warm and inviting despite the cold weather. We tried the black glass wine pairing where different wines were served with each course in A black glass to hide the colour. We were invited to take part in an informal quiz between ourselves to guess the colour, grape and year. Very... More

We ate here during the icewine festival. The restaurant was very pretty inside, and had nice windows overlooking the vineyard. We were a little early, so they offered to let us sit at our table (the restaurant didn't technically open until our reservation time) or offered us free tasting coupons. We did a tasting then came back and had an... More

I had high expectations going into our dinner at Trius, given the very positive reviews on TripAdvisor and other websites. The soup was flavourful but lukewarm. We shared the charcuterie board, which had some very interesting meats but was very small portion size, and did not come with crackers or anything to eat the meats with, which seemed odd. Also...

Best food ever. Rack of lamb to die for. Highly recommend pumpkin soup, too. Suggested wine pairings were very helpful. Attentive and informed wait staff. Great ambiance.

Our day started with a tasting of 10 Trius wines ranging from the very wonderful and surprising Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc to the Grand Red with its rich, velvety feel on the palette and long finish. Trius winery restaurant last lunch reservation is around 2:30. We were immediately seated at a table near the picture window overlooking the vineyard. Fabulicious... More

We stopped primarily for the wine tasting; however, decided to grab a quick lunch. We ordered the fish and chips for lunch and while our friends' fish seemed to be perfectly cooked; the batter on our fish was over cooked which gave it a burned taste and it was extremely flakey. As the chef, I would never send out one... More
