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.

We went there planning to take our weekly lunch at NOTL up a notch and were not disappointed. We sat on the patio which offered a nice view of the vineyards. It was a hard choice because the dining room did look very very nice. Being lunch time I chose the Angus burger and my wife have the chicken club... More

Me and my husband was planning to travel at Niagara-on-the lake for a long time. We were looking for a gorgeous restaurant around and finally chosen Riverbend Inn, the service there was great and we ordered a special glass of Riverbend Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, which we can enjoyed both the beautiful sunset view and the food there.The view from the...

Well, you can't say that we aren't loyal. After "that woman" ruined the once beautiful historic hotels in NOTL we found our way to the Riverbend. Newly renovated and operated by the former owner of The Prince of Wales hotel, the dining room was light and fresh having been painted in a soft yellow. The food, service and prices were... More

Quiet place, with a bit of a run down grounds and neglected gardens. The ownership had changed recently and the new management appears quite stingy with effort. The restauant service proved to be poor. Although the food was just Okay, my wife had to return her salad with some unappetizing stale seeds in it. Once asked for a piece of... More

I used to go to the Riverbend for many special occasions. Went last week with co-workers for an office lunch and I can say that I won't be returning any time soon. Although the service was excellent, the food was either super spicy (Asian noodle dish) or very dull (duck salad), small portions and totally lacked any visual appeal. I... More

We have eaten here before and thought it was middle of the range. Unfortunately yesterday was a terrible experience. Our waitress had no personality, was arrogant and rude. The ceasar salad had no dressing - asked for more and while she brought it, she was not impressed. Everyone had a salad as well as a main course - nothing to... More

We dined here as part of a wine tour & dinner package and expected good service & fine dining however, this was clearly not our experience. Despite the restaurant being virtually empty, we were seated outside in the setting sun without any choice being offered. Our server seemed 'put out' at the prospect of lowering the sun blinds, despite half... More

We made reservations for 10pp, 5:30pm on a May Saturday night. We ordered some wine, found it odd that tea and coffee service was served before wine. Beware, menu descriptions do not match the actual dish. Example, cranberries on the salad, my friend is allergic to cranberries. Honestly, don't expect to eat together, 3 bitter salads arrived, 10 minutes later... More

Had breakfast april 1. I ordered the classic eggs benedict, my wife ordered the salmon eggs benedict. They were both good. Only lacked a little bit of flavour. But it was good. I ordered a specialty coffee and the machine didnt work. So they lose a star for equipment maintenance. It amazes me how many restaurants i go to where... More
