My Italian/chef husband and I lived for months at a time in France and Italy and have eaten at some exceptionally fine eateries in many European cities. We have been searching for a 'special' restaurant in St. Catharines since we moved to the Niagara Region from Toronto... After 5 yrs., we have found it! Wellington Court won't get rid of... More

We are "foodies" and always looking for somewhere new to try. Normally, we usually end up heading towards TO, but I wanted to see if there was something new or something we had missed in the Niagara area. A simple "St Catherines restaurant" search lead us to the Wellington Court. We were so impressed right from the time we walked... More

I had Chicken Breast with Risotto and my husband had the Striploin Steak and we were pleased with that! We also indulged in dessert. I had the sticky pudding which was delicious and my husband had a... More

My husband and I had dinner at Wellington Court for my birthday and as always, it was incredible. We were greeted at the door immediately and taken to our table, where the server took our coats. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful, candlelit with amazing artwork throughout. Started with a sparking cuvée, calamari and pate - both to die for and... More

This is a small restaurant located in downtown St. Catharines in an old home. The interior is quite nicely done up, and tables are not jammed together, providing an excellent atmosphere. The food was excellent, and the service was friendly and very efficient. The menu was fairly limited with 6 or 7 entrees, and a like number of appetizers and... More

Taking out my family to celebrate a birthday and the season was truly a magnificent experience. We received service that is unparalleled in this region. The food was a proverbial home run. We dine out often just because, but this experience will go down as unforgettable.
