For a variety of reasons - and despite the great rep Chef Eric has - a visit to this spot had always eluded us. (Prices for mains are high so we did not want to rush the experience and it always seemed we had a deadline.) We met Chef at an event and he told us to come by and... More

my friend and I had a lovely lunch here last month. Not only was the food delicious, the service was outstanding too.

Lunch is usually great here. We ordered the lobster and shrimp salad and it came on a cold hoagie roll which we quickly discarded. Everything else was good. Afterwards I suggested to the waitress that they might toast the roll in the future. She said they usually put it on the Panini press to warm it up. I wonder why... More

I have eaten here on several occasions and the entire experience is always "top notch". The food is consistently amazing and the owners, who are always there, genuinely care about your experience. The wine list focuses on some amazing Niagara wines, love the fact they support local wineries, I suggest you try some of their "hidden gems". The decor from... More

Our party of 10 discovered a beautiful gem in southern Ontario when we dinned at the Wellington Inn on Saturday, July 19, for the first time of what will be many to come! From the appetizers to the desserts, from the wine selection to the ports, the food and drink could not have been better. With one vegetarian in our... More

I will preface this review by saying Wellington Court has been a local favorite of mine through the years and a top restaurant in the area, along with Casa Mia in Niagara Falls, and 2 places in NOTL ( Stone Road Grille, Ravine ). We've been here several times, so when we ate here on June 19th it was not... More

My husband & I have been coming here for years. I can't even begin to describe how fantastic the food is. There is no where else I know of in Niagara that even comes close. We have never had a disappointing meal here and typically whatever we order exceeds our expectations! Just enjoyed a lovely Friday night on the patio... More

Our first impression was that the restaurant was extremely fancy. However, with limited menu options, the food did not reach expectations. For the price, it was not worth it.

I went for dinner with a group when in St. Catharines for a conference. It turned out to be a good choice -- a pleasant surprise. The food was very well-prepared (more interesting than average and good and fresh ingredients), the service attentive, and the dining room comfortable and well appointed. They also had live jazz (it was a Friday... More

We have been disappointed by the food over the last few visits and after our last visit in July, have decided that Wellington Court is no longer for us. We have enjoyed the restaurant for over 10 years now and are sad to say goodbye, however, the food today is just not comparable to the food of the past.

Dear Niagara-Foodee, Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant on Trip Advisor! We are sad that you are no longer a fan but understand that tastes change and as food and service in Niagara evolve to compete and compare with larger centers it is not going to please everyone. I am very happy to see that you... More
