The breakfast if mediocre at best. The bad part is having the wait for over an hour for pancakes!!! Diner was no better. An uncomfortable wait with little to no service. Bread was offered with a cooking grade oil and balsamic. Not what you expect from a 4 diamond restaurant. The main was a lobster risotto with what seemed to... More

This is my third time at the over-rated Riverbend Restaurant. I came back because I really wanted to write a fair review. The restaurant and patio are small but charming. Things are well kept, lovely to look at and there is a spectacular view. Unfortunately, all goes downhill quite quickly from here. Let's begin with their wait staff. On each... More

Made dinner reservations since this restaurant was give four diamonds by AAA. The dining room/bar was tastefully decorated but very noisy. The appetizer we ordered was overpriced. Three very small shrimp, a crab cake, and two seared scallops that were virtually tasteless. The prime rib was overdone and the Yorkshire pudding was also overdone. The vegetables were not cooked enough.... More

The food was prepared well at the two breakfasts and one dinner we had at the Inn during our stay. Breakfast was understaffed, however, which created longish waits for coffee refills. Management would do well to hire additional staff to accommodate guest volume, particularly during "high season" / holiday weekends.

We had lunch outside at this lovely inn restaurant in the middle of Niagara wine country. The outside patio provides great views. The food was good and, no surprise, the wine list was inviting.

The restaurant is well maintained but when asked if we wished to sit outdoors, which we did, it was strictly patio furniture, no table cloth , not enough cutlery and a very busy server who could have used some help. The food was average but the prices were top drawer! The views on to the vineyard are spectacular and the... More

We went there in late August after a day of bike ride in the Niagara-on-the-Lake area. I had high hopes since the reviews on TA have been great. When we arrived, we were impressed by the driveway leading to the majestic building facade. The vineyards, the unobstructed view facing west, the nicely decorated patio for al fresco dining, and the... More

Me and my boyfriend came in to have a nice romantic dinner. It was very nice and classic looking with a great menu. Our server Eric was amazing. Sangria is really good and the prime rib was very nice.

Beautiful wine from the estate served along with excellent food. The Seafood Trio was outstanding. There was a wedding in the grounds while we lunched but it just added to the atmosphere.
