“Food delicious, staff were great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

Enjoyed a leisurely meal that a chef should be proud of. Presented well by the staff who know their wines and pairing. As an anniversary choice, my partner chose well. Recommend the trout. Beautifully done.

“Excellent service and menu!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

I celebrated by birthday with their pre-fixe menu offering and was so happy I made the last minute reservation. Amazing food and wine pairings recommended by our server and he made us feel like we were the only table in the restaurant. Try the cheesecake for dessert (if they still have it) and Ontario pork chop for the main!

Trius Winery has a beautiful location. It would be a great place to hold a special event.

The staff were friendly and knowledgable; I liked their sparkling wine.

“Good wine, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

I'm not a huge fan of Trius wines, but the restaurant was highly recommended by the Inn we stayed at in NOTL

I can't say I was surprised by the quality of the meal based on how highly it cam recommended, but it was really very good. I started with the Romaine hearts, which was served wrapped in top quality prosciutto. This was one of the best fancy versions of a ceasar salad I have ever had. For the main I had the lamb, which I find is a hit or miss dish in most restaurants. This was a hit. Nothing over the top, but tasty without any gaminess.

The service was great. I don't have any idea what some of the other reviewers are complaining about. Our server was friendly, fast and we never waited for anything.

For a winery restaurant, I highly recommend it.

“Trius Winery”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

The staff here is so unfriendly and not willing to take the time with you that I couldn't even stomach to drink the wine. This is such a popular winery on the wine tours that i could not believe they can get away with this kind of service. I am not sure what this winery has that keeps the people coming, but I can guarantee that I will never stop here again!
