Description: As one of Niagara's first winery restaurants and a forerunner of Niagara's flourishing wine and culinary scene, we offer cuisine featuring ingredients from local purveyors prepared by an internationally trained team of chefs led by Executive Chef Justin Downes. Guests dine indoors in the renovated 1845 farmhouse or outdoors under the new shade sails. Wherever you are seated, you will take in the views of rolling vineyards, the forests of the Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario and Toronto in the distance. The Restaurant is open for Lunch and Dinner.

Got a gift certificate from a friend. Neither the wife nor I are wine drinkers and would have never picked this place for dinner. It is a little off the beaten path from the Q.E.W. The service was good and the restaurant was clean.
The food was well above average and reasonably priced for a nicer restaurant. I ordered the beef tenderloin and the wife got the seared tuna. Glad I had the opportunity to eat here.
Hint: sit on the deck for the view, but ignore the flies, you are in the middle of a field after all.

We are never disappointed with a visit to Vineland and recently we took friends that were visiting from Virginia (first time to Canada, met at Sandals) and they truly enjoyed the experience. As always, staff was attentive, making the experience perfect. The wine tasting, samples and of course the shopping was first class.

The vista offered is the tops in the region and the food never disappoints. This time sweetbreads were matched with slightly tart veggies making the overall a fantastic appetizer experience. The perfectly cooked char could have used a light frothy sauce to complement the fabulous taste of the dish.

Enjoyed and evening dinner on the patio and even has a surprise when they had a band scheduled. The views are amazing and the service was excellent and of course the food was delicious. Just know this is a high end restaurants and portions are smaller than normal. What you lose in portions, you more than make up in flavour.

We decided to try several first and second course selections and bypassed the main to get some variety. The grilled calamari was excellent.

We will definitely make this a regular stop when in the Niagara area.

To start this review we absolutely love Vineland Estate winery, especially the wine tasting bar, the people there are wonderful. So on this day we went to the restaurant as we often do. Our server Mathew was outstanding when he was available. Unfortunately he had to wait on too many tables at the same time. So the end result, kept us waiting for about 20 minutes or more to get any service at all, such as a glass of water or to ask if we would want more wine. To top it off we are wine club members which in our eyes should elevate our service. So the bottom line is we were very disappointed in the lack of attentive service which we have always been accustomed. This by no means is detriment to Mathew because he had sooo many tables to try and keep happy.
Having more staff in summer hours makes more sense to us.
