Well established as one of the top spots to dine in Niagara. The quality, fresh ingredients that go into creating a cuisine inspired by the beauty and bounty of the Niagara Region. Wellington Court offers a relaxing atmosphere catering to diners looking for the best quality and best value.

Wow!!!

Took my 2 daughters and wife out for the most amazing dinner at Wellington. This small restaurant has the most amazing atmosphere and the staff made us feel so welcome. No need for a special occasion to be treated to an evening that you'll be dying to come back to.

Wellington Court is one of our favourite upscale dining venues in St Catharines! Their Downtown Delish menu selections exceeded our expectations, servers were well versed in wine selections and very professional in their attentiveness to our table. Changes have been made to the restaurant décor since we were last in - very chic and appealing. There were so many highlights... More

Met friends for dinner last Sat nite and enjoyed the Downtown D'Lish 3 course prix fix dinner selections. Charred trout was delicious as well as black cod, chicken and steak, We were able to bring some fine bottles of wine with a corkage fee of $15.00. Everything was great until the end of the meal when the waitress reminded us... More

We had dinner here with another couple on a busy weeknight in mid December. It is one of their favourite restaurants and they have dined here over many years. They were not wrong. The service was attentive and the food, delicious. We sampled the charcuterie tray, oysters, salt cod fritters and mushroom soup for appetizers and all were outstanding. For... More

This restaurant is off the beaten track but well worth seeking it out. My husband and I felt the warm pleasing atmosphere as soon as we walked in. The white tablecloths didn't make it feel overly formal but set the stage for fine dining. We were seated right away and the waitress was pleasant and attentive. The menu indicated that... More

After reading the rave reviews on trip advisor, my wife and I had to try this little gem of a place. From the service, the cuisine, the atmosphere and modern art we enjoyed every minute of the experience. We definitely recommend and will return when back in the area.

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
