“Another great meal”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

The food and service is always great at Benchmark. The prix fixe was 4 courses featuring peaches which are now in season. Very innovative and outstanding flavours. Then is constantly coming up with new dishes that a real treat. The wine pairing is quite good as well. You simply can't go wrong with Benchmark.

“Spot on”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Everything was very well done. You do have to bear in mind that this is a College, but the food is superb, the local wine well worth trying & the servers try very hard to get things right. Cut them some slack, remembering what it was like to be a student, and they will work very hard for you.

“Great food”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We ate here on Recommendations from Kellar House B&B and they were right on the mark. The appetizers were very tasty. Loved the steak and portions were ample. The atmosphere is very romantic and modern. We will have to return again when we come back to Niagara.

“Lovely experience on a beautiful summer day”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

This was a really nice lunch experience at a very affordable price. We knew that this was a cooking school restaurant so we were prepared for some flaws but there really weren't any. The server was sweet and knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about his job. (The service was a little leisurely, but that was OK with us.) The food was well prepared overall - delicious trout meuniere, portobello burgers, salads and house-made sorbet. However, the fried fish (a special that day) had an overly heavy batter. The ingredients were very fresh and often locally sourced, including wine made at the college.

The setting is beautiful - looking out over the college's vineyard and greenhouse. Don't miss the wine education center across the parking lot. Niagara College has a teaching winery. Staff there were also knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Were were able to sample and buy some wonderful ice wines.

“Fresh and interesting”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We stopped in for lunch one weekday. My husband was pleased with his Trust Us choice which was wonderful fish and chips. I had a pork sandwich which was full of interesting flavours. The restaurant is bright and relaxing and the service was excellent. We enjoyed some student-brewed beer with our lunch and then wandered over to the brew store. We will go back.
