The students always do an excellent job- from the chefs to the servers. Never disappointed. A lovely setting as well.

Had a wonderful dinner here at 2/3 the price it would have cost in town. Students were friendly and professional. Will return again for dinner and try lunch when we have the opportunity.

We didn't realize there was a restaurant open to the public at the College. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch in a beautiful surrounding, and looked after by attentive servers. The menu is varied so you can have a lighter fare or more substantial. They offer a selection of appetizers such as Apple tempura, cheese plates, charcuterie etc. Right to mains... More

We had the Braised Chicken Cacciatore and the Eastcoast Salmon. Both were prepared to perfection and made for an outstanding meal. The service was efficient and welcoming. We also had a flight of their wines to top off the evening. The best part was the bill was not outrageous. Be sure to make your reservation early. The Resturant books up... More

Visited for the restaurant's first winemaker's dinner. Very nice atmosphere with many guests of various backgrounds. Started with a root vegetable puree soup, then a roasted red beet salad on a bed of goat cheese. Great starters! Both courses were served with well paired wines which accented the flavors of the wine and food. Had some nice conversations with our... More

We were part of a 40+ group of seniors who had lunch following an organized tour of this educational training facility. The morning was extremely interesting and entertaining and included a chef’s cooking demonstration [risotto]. The meal was actually the icing on the cake as meal orders were pre-ordered and table staff took and delivered our drinks orders quickly and... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant. While our first visit was wonderful, we can't say the same of our dining experience this time. Three of us dined on Saturday evening. The restaurant was packed. We knew what we wanted and ordered wine, appetizers, and entrees. We were asked if we wanted bread and we said yes. We waited... More

This is a great place to find, try the college's wines and enjoy the view. I had pasta and a kale salad. Both were delicious and seasoned well.

My family and I were travelling to Niagara Falls and decided to swing by the outlets. We shopped into the evening and were getting hungry, and didn't know of a good place to eat nearby. We happened to stumble upon Benchmark and we were not disappointed. We did not have a reservation and the dining room was full. A very... More

We decided at the last minute to try The Benchmark restaurant. I had the chicken sandwich. It was loaded with grilled chicken breast, smoke bacon and lettuce. Mayo with mustard seeds and seasoned fries on the side. The chicken was goo and flavorful. The bacon was a nice thick slab which was lightly smoked. The bun was homemade. My date... More
