This place is a hidden gem. We went for lunch and then returned the same day for dinner. The food was amazing and the price was so reasonable. 3 courses for $35. The menu's change weekly which is very neat. Definitely stop into the tasting bar and brewery. They make amazing wines here. I will definitely return again soon.

Visited Ice wine and Chocolate festival.
Never ate so much chocolate in my life!!
It was absolutely delicious!
Not a big fan of ice wine, though enjoyed it!
Bought few bottles of Niagara College wine at the winery.
Still keep one for special occasion ;-)
Culinary students cooked food for this event, and i honestly didnt expect it to be that good!
Would love to visit this place one more time!

The Benchmark is my "go to" place for fine dining in Niagara. The food is always fresh and innovative. I love that we are supporting Niagara producers, Niagara College and its students when we dine there. And then you can shop at the wine store after the meal and take home what you've tried.

Eating here is such a pleasure. We have never been disappointed. The food is creative, nicely presented and delicious. The presentation at the tables is impeccable, the wait staff are very well trained, and it just goes to make the whole experience very enjoyable. Value for money and for great food, this can't be beaten. Will continue to keep going there, so that's the recommendation.

When I first visited this restaurant a few years back I didn't know what to expect as it was located inside the Niagara College Campus. I was pleasantly surprised and have been each time I go back with my family or for business lunches. The restaurant serves gourmet type lunches and dinners at a fraction of the cost of a traditional 5-star restaurant. The premise of the restaurant is for the students in the Chef program to hone their skills. I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant and always tell people about it that are not from the area.
