“nice surroundings somewhat overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Largest most tender pork chop ever.
Somewhat disappointing parsnip soup.
wondered where the parsnips were!!!
Scrumpdilicious dessert, we tried both the cheesecake and chocolate ones and they did not disappoint.

Because it was a Winterlicious and reservations were tight we felt somewhat rushed at the end of the meal

“Fantastic Food,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Went to Winterliscious at Trius Winery. Fantastic meal. Lamp Shank that floated off the bone with a delightful sage and pecan crust almost beat out the pork chop savoured in maple in apple as the best dish at our table. The wine pairings were perfect, exploded the pallette with complimentary flavours. Our waiter Chris was amazing and explained choice to us.

Easily able to cope and accomodate to nut allergies, Trius is a mustbrepeat restaurant.

“Great food for foodies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We went there for lunch and had prix fixe menu. My husband and I ordered different things so that we got to try more dishes. Everything was fantastic. We had wine pairing which was also very nice as well. My appetizer got combination of butternut squash ravioli with scallop and pork belly, yumm! My husband had parsnip soup which was very good as well. My main was pork chopped with cassoulet, my husband had salmon with butternut squash risotto, both were great. I had chocolate mouse for dessert and my husband had pear almondine, yum and yum. It was a great experience and we were both really enjoyed it.
If you don't want to spend so much money for a meal, go there for lunch. Dinner will be in the expensive end.

“Very good and very expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

I had a very favorable dinning experience in the barrel room. We all opted for the 5 course dinner with wine. The service was impeccable.

All the courses were 5 star. The mushroom truffle broth was a hit. The steak carved table side was one of the best tasting steaks I have ever eaten.

Everything was fantastic. It was a memorable meal but very expensive.

“Fantastic New Year's Eve celebration”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

It's was our first Trius masquerade New Year's Eve party at the Trius winery. The evening lasted till 1am which began with a reception with sparkling wine, appetizers and an environment that was intimate enough to roam and mingle. The were over 70 guests at the party, we were then seated for a fabulous dinner with our hosts Frank (executive chief) and restaurant manager. Each course was introduce by Frank, and it was simply delicious. There were more than enough wine and spatkling to go around. To ring in the new year, the party was moved to the restaurant area whe desert, coffee, bar, and a DJ was ready to entertain. We met a lot of great people at the party, the mood was festive and this makes a very memorable event to ring in the new year.
