“Wellington Court - St Catharines, Ontario”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

When I was visiting St Catharines last October (2013) I found Wellington Court completely by accident. I was doing genealogy research and decided to drive around St Catharines to take photos of the homes where my husband's ancestors had lived. This house was where the Franklin family lived in the early 1950's! I had no reservations and was alone, but decided to have dinner here so I could see the inside of the house. I was welcomed warmly and had one of the best dining experiences of my life in this lovely restaurant.

I ordered the Endive Salad with poached apple, crumbled bleu cheese and toasted almonds -- it was wonderful with the sweet vermouth vinaigrette. For my main course I couldn't resist the Venison Rack, served with bacon, creamed savoy cabbage, herbed fingerling potatoes, confit tomatoes with a red wine sauce. Dessert was a lovely and unusual Blue Cheese cheesecake with bacon on top!

I'll be back in St Catharines again in the near future and will be sure to dine at Wellington Court again - fantastic and creative food, and wonderful quiet atmosphere.

Eric Peacock always comes up with great new ideas to keep the menu interesting and fresh. Both of our meals were excellent and the whole experience was top notch.

“Top Notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

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 us! We are hooked after one meal. - Duck with figs, polenta and greens, surloinstrip steak with pommes frites & spinach salad. Beautifully presented. Reasonable prices and excellent local wines. The service was gracious and classy! On weekends, be sure to have a reservation. We will be there often.

“Asked if it was ok to "lick the plate"....need I say more!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

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 in.....fantastic atmosphere, great menu with a couple of not so common items....grilled octopus (don't confuse with calamari, which they have as well) venison and rabbit. Food was absolutely amazing as was the presentation.
Since we had apps and an entree....there was no room for dessert. From what I could see, it looked amazing as well. My only dissappointment was the selection of white wines by the glass. There are only 3 and they are all on the dry side....suggest "swapping" one out and adding a reisling/pinot grigio.
Cannot wait to go back and try lunch....and maybe dessert this time!!
