I'm a vegetarian so the menu is limited for me but there's always something I can enjoy. Dining is in two rooms on the smaller side or an outside patio. Cozy - can be formal or at least smart casual.

What a lovely little find. My husband and I made the road trip over the border to stay in Niagara-on-the-lake. After exhausting most of our options for dinning in town, we decided to go off the beaten path and try a little place in St. Catharines recommended by our hotel concierge. When we arrived at Wellington Court we were greeted... More

Won't be back for another 20. Maybe. One level up from budget steak. The strip lion was "sandy" @ medium rare trimmed with allot of fat/gristle and a vein of silver through the centre. Was very disappointed,every thing else was better than average. Although certainly not mind blowing. Portion sizes were small for the price and the service was polite... More

Was there on Aug 14, 2015.The food may have been great, but it was hard to focus on the food or my conversation with my friend because there were 4 - 5 middle age men who were drunk and extremely loud there for over three hours (they were still there when we left), and when we walked passed them to...

Absolutely fantastic food - not a cheap outing, but one to save for a special occasion. Also does amazing catering functions (small or big).

This was the peach festival weekend in Niagara On The Lake, and as residents we knew finding anywhere to eat locally would be difficult. So thanks to trip adviser we decided to try the #1 rate restaurant in St. Catharines, Wellington Court Restaurant. We were greeted warmly and promptly shown to our table, our waitress was very friendly and attentive,... More

After a day on the local shore watching the annual Royal Canadian Henley Regatta (amazing event with 2700 rowers from all over N. America) we noted that the #1 rated restaurant in St. Catharines was Wellington Court. We sat outside just to the right 7:15 reservation on a Friday night. Manhattan cocktail was perfect. Smoked Trout appetizer very nice. Venison... More

Went for dinner to celebrate a birthday. From start to end, all was great! Appetizers, entrees, dessert and drinks. Everything was spot on. The chef came out and talked to us as well, after our meal. Thanks for a great experience!

We had heard great things about Welliington Court and it more than met our expectations. Instead of entrees, we had 5 apps and two desserts - good decision. We had the pate - excellent, especially with the pear pieces, the smoked trout - wow!, the endive salad, pink radish with shrimp, and the beef tartare. The servings are generous and... More
