“Always A Good Meal Here”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We've been going to Niagara-on-the-Lake for many, many years now, and a meal at The Old Winery is always part of our plans. This lovely eatery has a menu of wood-fired pizzas, seasonal starters and entrees, at least one special, and very nice desserts. The portions are not overwhelming, yet they are not tiny "cheffy" portions either. Service is always attentive and knowledgeable. While the price is a bit high, this is to be expected in a touristy area.

“Another Great Meal at the Old Winery”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Three couples met for dinner at the Old Winery after the matinee performance of Guys & Dolls at the Shaw Festival on April 19th. My husband & I have dined at this establishment many times but it was the first time for our friends from out-of-town. A good choice - dinner was a big hit and our server, Lana, was excellent. The women all chose "the catch of the day" Grilled Arctic Char with basmati rice & vegetables" at $22.00, the guys all chose the Veal Parmiggiana with pasta at $18.00. All the drinks were excellent - a variety of wines, martini's and beer. My Southbrook Oaked Chardonnay was $6.00 a glass and my husband's Stella Draft beer was $6.25 a glass.

“Above average service; food - try it, you might like it!”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

It was great to find a restaurant open Monday evening in NOTL. Great menu and attentive, enthusiastic server. A few odd things like - no host or hostess immediately appearing but instead, a dour looking fellow on the phone at the 'hostess' desk..who did not acknowledge us in any way. No problem, reservations had been made and we were seated promptly and as I said, server was very good. Menu - great choices to pick from, I just didn't pick them carefully for my usual tastes. I recommend this place for anyone who likes pretty good Italian food. And the portions are, shall we say 'super sized'? Couldn't finish the calamari partly because it was so large a portion, and partly because I prefer it grilled not battered and fried. I also ordered a pizza, which was sort of heavy and greasy, but the arugula topping had been prepared with care and was much appreciated. Others ordered pasta and veal parm, and they thoroughly enjoyed those dishes. Warm mushroom salad also got rave review.
