Transit: Unlike an urban property, On The Twenty is not well served by public transportation options. We urge you to consider this issue in planning the conclusion of your evening or event.
Description: On the Twenty restaurant predates the Inn by a number of years and came into being to help contextualize Niagara wines with a regional cuisine - an easy task with the bounty of Niagara all around us for inspiration. Our goal: to make innovative dishes that complement our wines and leave guests wanting "more Niagara".Our dining rooms are intimate in size and overlook the Twenty Valley and a lush perennial garden. The vibrant golden walls are a backdrop to fine Ontario art. The mood is special, but still casual. Our staff love food and wine - to talk about it too: they are our ambassadors!We have a full bar and we serve both Cave Spring wines and those of Ontario wineries we are proud to call colleagues. A limited international list supplements our VQA offerings.

“On the 20 Always a Winner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Every year we visit the Niagara-on-the-Lake area in Canada and make a stop for lunch at the On the 20 at Jordan Station. (Part of the Inn on the 20). The food and wine are always exceptional, and their luncheon specials are a good value. The service is impeccable, and the views out the large former-mill windows is lovely. This year was no exception -- and its a compliment to the restaurant that their high standards continue year after year. The connected Cave Spring store sells their nice wines, and some terrific bread. Nice shops surround the restaurant, though our favorite garden shop has gone. And the cheese at the Upper Canada Cheese company nearby is not to be missed.

“Expected better service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

I have always (since1993) wanted to go to this restaurant and was finally treated to lunch yesterday. Beautiful spot, lovely food having a great time, until.... Dessert. I ordered pumpkin spice cheesecake to find no flavor of pumpkin. It was definitely orange flavoring. My table mate ordered this highly recommended dessert as well with the same puzzled taste. We enjoyed it non the less but (sweetly) mentioned our surprise that there was no pumpkin flavor to which we were told, " I tried it last week and it was great" no other response even though we asked to speak to the mgr. As we were leaving we hovered near the vacant hostess booth and waited for the manager to appear. We finally ran into her ( the restaurant was emptying out) she told me that the chef did not have time for her to taste it. Bye!

“Consistently Fantastic !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We visited this restaurant on Sunday for lunch. This was my 4th time there. Everytime I visit this restaurant, I am impressed. The food is fantastic. We had the butternut squash soup and I had the whitefish. Then I had the berry crumble. Each dish was better than the last. I can't wait to go back.

“Fine restaurant for a large group”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

I always wanted to try On the Twenty and we booked for a large group of 12 from Quebec on a busy fall week end. They gave us a private dining room the setting was perfect but no scenic view. Claire our server did an amazing job and handled us very well Speaking on behalf of the group everybody was impressed by the quality of food myself had the scallops perfectly done and the basil pasta. I tried the pork chops which were the day recommendation with the sweet sauce with a hint of vanilla cooked to perfection and moist The creme brulee and cheese cake were great pleaser. Overall everybody had a great evening and will definitely return. Kuddos to Claire that put up with us until the end.
