“FLAWLESS”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Just came from a perfect lunch at this restaurant. We each had two courses...all 4 were excellent. We dined outside on the patio and initially I was concerned about timely service since the patio appeared quite full. No fears, however, service was smooth, well-timed and cordial and staff were easily able to answer all questions. Their suggested wine pairings were just right. Without going into details about every delicious bite, I can just say the meal was delightful... Perfectly cooked, lovely to look at, well portioned and sophisticated but not intimidating. Kudos to the kitchen staff ... All that prep worked ended in a perfect summer lunch. This is our third visit and it has always been so good we are hesitant to go anywhere else for lunch in Niagara. Tomorrow's lunch has a hard act to follow.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

The late lunch at Trius restaurant was impressive. We were able to walk right in to our table without any reservations considering the hot day. Everyone wanted to go on the patio. OUr server Keith was very knowledgeable and provided excellent service. The food was wonderfully paired with all of the wines. What a great experience!

“Fabulous staff”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Thank you Trius for a great wine tasting experience, my husband and I had a complimentary voucher and we were made to feel special. Lots of information and staff could answer our questions, so different to Peller winery experience.

The tasting vouchers sure come in handy! Trius and Peller are definitely very different- but both wineries deliver a warm welcome to any guest who walks through the door. I am glad you had such a great experience, you will have to come back and join us for lunch or dinner!

“Dinner at Hillebrand”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

The dinner at Trius restaurant was creative and exquisitely delicious. However, it took far too long to get to our table -I'm talking at least 50 minutes to get the 1st course. Afterwards, the main took another 35 min to arrive. We were hungry. Our glasses of white wine reached room temperature. The timing spoiled everything. We didn't order coffee and dessert because we'd already been at table for almost 2 hrs. Eat a light lunch before you come & bring a book. June 24

I apologize for the wait time- Some people prefer to have time between courses to enjoy the paired wine with each course. If you give us a second chance, please mention your experience as the wait staff can try to move quicker for you! Hope to see you soon.
