I should start by saying we were a large party of 10 women on a Saturday night. We were seated right away, and after a long day of wine tastings and spa services, we needed water. We asked our waitress if it was possible to have a pitcher at the table, and she was unwilling to leave a large one,... More

Wife and I were staying at Pillar and Post so dining here was our first choice. We were seated fairly quickly as we had a reservation and our dinner was part of the room package for our stay at the Pillar and Post. It was not very busy; the place really has alot of charm and character. Our server was... More

Best Prime Rib since The Beef Baron in Niagara Falls, (2010). Patricia our server was amazing. Friendly, funny, hospitable, knowledgeable, great service. Allowed us to take our time, never rushed. The Prawns appetizer to share was perfect, and her recommendation of the Prime Rib, well, she was absolutely right. Best I have had in a long time. You definitely need... More

There's a bit of a country feel to this fine dining restaurant. Everything was perfect, no disappointments. I had the seafood linguine which had some nice size shrimp, mussels, calamari. I generally love green olives but I found them an odd flavour combination with the rest of my dish - perhaps that's just me. I highly recommend the crab cakes,... More

My husband and I checked the top ten restaurants in Niagara-on-the-Lake and chose to have dinner at the Cannery Restaurant on July 15 since it was our first visit to the town. Our waitress Sharon was very welcoming and pleasant. I ordered the chicken breast stuffed with feta and spinach with roasted vegetables and pesto mashed potatoes. The chicken was... More

Dinner for two was well presented with excellent service and varied menu. Breakfast was very good buffet or ala carte.

We booked to stay in Niagara on the Lake on a whim and loved it so much we cut our stay at Niagara Falls short to come back here! We also fell in love with the Vintage Hotel line - first staying at their Prince of Wales location and upon our return staying at Pillar and Post. Being from Texas... More

Enjoyed a great meal here. We loved the relaxed atmosphere, the prompt and friendly service and the delicious food. Our waitress was extremely warm and friendly. Would definitely revisit. Our favourite dinner while in Niagara on the Lake.

The decor is gloomy. Reminiscent of dinner in a nursing home. The menu is in need of updating and seasonal adjustments. We were there in July but there was nothing light or summery on the menu. That's not to say that the food wasn't good. The Roast beef and rib steak were both very good, the salad was over dressed,... More

We recently ate dinner here (reserved for 6 PM and seated even earlier) before attending a play at the Shaw Festival. We let the waitress know that we had a play to get to by 8PM. We had our entrees served to us in less than 15 minutes! I think I was still nibbling on the bread. In the past... More

Top it all off with a sweet and savoury dessert featuring fresh local fruits or devilishly dark chocolate. Every guest will leave satisfied with great service and an outstanding taste of Ontario cuisine. Every dish can be complemented by a selection from our extensive Wine List, filled with local and international favourites.
