Very quiet dinner for two on Monday evening. Chose the 5 course tasting menu with premium wines and it was fabulous. The service was great and throughly enjoyed the evening. Loved it!

Once again a superb evening, creative and delicious food by Chef Jason Parsons who delighted our palates from amuse-bouche to dessert. The elegant ambiance is great for indulgence, but also not so formal that one feels uncomfortable. Servers are well informed and impeccably trained. We enjoyed the seven-course tasting menu with wine pairing.
You will not make a mistake by paying this delightful winery restaurant a visit.

The 4 course tasting menu was fantastic. Everything tasted as wonderful as it looked and it was a great value too. The service was exceptional - friendly, knowledgeable and the courses were served at appropriate speeds.

We loved the look of the place; classic elegance, with confortable chairs, white table clothes. Servise was very friendly and fast. We ordered a five course tasting menu and it was trully amazing! All courses were very tasty and the presentation was exceptional; each plate looking like a piece of art. Our friends ordered from a regular menu and were equally happy with their choices. This place is a hidded gem for food lovers

My 2nd dining experience did not meet the same expectations as my 1st.
1st time I tried the chef's 7 course meal & wine pairings and it was exciting & delicious! The waiter was fabulous & the chef even came to sit with us!
This time we chose from the fixed menu and it wasn't that great. Not many gluten free options, a meat dish was cold and the waiter had no personality. Not to mention a couple next to us who stormed out yelling something about paying top dollar for being treated like they were at McDonalds. Yikes! (Manager did come out to apologize)
Beautiful winery but maybe it was an off night?

We went for the Chef's select menu with a premium wine pairing. While the server was friendly, she didn't seem to be knowledgeable about the wine, and the chef didn't visit. A fine meal,but we wouldn't visit again based on this evening.

This is my second time visiting this restaurant in Niagara On The Lake and the experience never disappointed.
This time, my wife and I was on a getaway and plan to have dinner at Peller Estate on Thanksgiving Monday. We actually arrived there 1/2 hr early and we asked if we could sit down earlier at the table to rest our fatigue bodies. They kindly rejected us and gave us a complimentary wine tasting (which has a worth of $15) before we can sit down to enjoy the dinner.
The food, according to my wife, was wonderful and the service was pretty good. The waiter was so attentive even to our very basic questions.

Even for Sunday lunch, Peller offers your choice of a brunch menu, "blind" tasting menu, and a great regular menu. The food is great and Peller pours their fine wines. Our server, Michaela, was delightful and very professional. Pellet is a great spot for whatever you feel like on a Sunday afternoon.

My wife and I along with our daughter and son-in-law went to Peller for our wedding anniversary and were treated to a most outstanding meal with impeccable service, perfect ambiance, and the best wine parings imaginable. We all had the 5 course meal with the Signature wine parings and were not disappointed with any of the courses. The food was saved with class, it was fresh and delicious, and the water was informative but not intrusive. I cannot recommend this restaurant high enough for a special occasion. Order the 5 course of 7 course meal - it is great fun to put yourself in the expert hands of the chef and to be surprised (always pleasantly) with each course. It is not inexpensive, but for a special occasion, well worth the money.

We brought my husband's parents to dinner on Saturday October 8th 2016 and it was amazing! We wanted to thank them for all the help they did on our stag and doe and wedding this year! They well deserved it. We had the 5 course tasting menu and everyone was full after the meals! Great wine, great pairing, great food and must of all great company!

The food and the presentation of the food was outstanding. We really felt like VIP guests. Definitely we will be back next time. Much appreciated the chef efforts to make out dinner to look and test PERFECT! Thanks you! Delia and Marius

An outstanding Tasting Menu, paired with great wines, beautifully served by attentive wait staff. The outdoor patio overlooking the expansive vineyards on a warm evening with the setting sun, and twinkling tree lights was absolutely magical. Every time we go, it gets even better. Memorable for sure!

Nice location with a scenic view. Very friendly staff. Food was overpriced and many items weren't even cooked properly. For example, my mom's dish had a side of potatoes which were not even close to being fully cooked. We asked for a replacement and they brought a different kind of potato (garlic fingerlings this time) and parts of them were cold while only the smallest potatoes were cooked. The larger pieces were still raw in the middle! How does a restaurant of this price range screw up potatoes?! My risotto was really good but the zucchini blossoms were fried in a tempura batter so I was expecting a nice stuffing to the flowers but there was barely anything inside. Therefore, it was just doughy fried flowers. Hmm. My mom's duck breast was nicely cooked. Probably the best thing on all four of our plates. My sister's scallops were slightly underdone as well. Wouldn't go back.

The Peller Estates restaurant is beautiful and the view of the vineyards is amazing. Unfortunately the quality of the food did not match the place - we ordered the 4-course tasting menu and was disappointed to find the taste and quality to be sub-par. The salmon confit was stale and fishy and so was the pickerel amuse-bouche. We will probably be back for wine tasting but won't come back to the restaurant.

I was disappointed in the food, I had read so many great reviews but I suspect like many fine dining restaurants the absence of the original chef means quality slides a bit.
I had the signature lobster appetizer which was a bit bland followed by the duck which was Luke warm - although tasty.
My sister had the scallops and her pea risotto was cold and tasteless. I was surprised our waiter didn't ask more questions as she only ate the scallops, leaving behind 3/4 of the meal.
It was okay but for the price and reputation I expected a lot more.

There is no doubt that everything at Peller Estates is first-class. Everything from the atmosphere and ambiance to the fantastic service and amazing meal. Once again, our group enjoyed the Chef's Tasting Menu with the wine pairings and it was spectacular to say the least. I would also like to highlight the tremendous service that the staff provided from the moment we walked in. We started off in the Tasting Area prior to our reservation in the Dining Room and our group was extremely impressed by the attention to detail. Our servers Sandra & Colin are true professionals at what they do and we could not have enjoyed ourselves more. Thank you... and we will be back again soon!

We enjoyed the food overall and the service. The appetizers (salmon and tuna) were great, as well the sparkling wine. We had duck breast and venison for mains. We loved the duck breast. Venison felt strange a little bit - it didn't have the taste of venison, tasted more like cow liver. Overall, we liked the restaurant and would recommend it.

Great locale and a great server. The chef needed help though. For a 4.5 star restaurant I expected more. The sweet pea appetizer was a combination of flavors that were totally unexpected and certainly not described on the menu. To include sweep pea puree with blue cheese wedges was not a friendly combination.
The main course was the sliced beef. It was prepared perfectly but was totally smothered in very heavily smoked sausage that entirely overpowered the beef and left nothing in your mouth but a very heavy smoked flavor, leading one to ask 'where was the beef?'
The desert which we ordered was the ice cream, mostly to get the heavily smoked flavor out of our mouths. Nothing should be simpler than ice cream, but once again the ice cream was concotted with a bunch of other indidstinguishable ingredients that led to false expectations and disappointment.

Never any question. Peller is our favourite for special occasions and our Anniversary celebration was no exception. Wonderful food, great service, excellent wine options, and continuity in quality. That's why we return.

We were so lucky to find this restaurant years ago and we now make sure that we have a dinner here when we come to NOTL. The service is impeccable, the food is absolutely delicious and just a touch of unusual ingredients offers you something to try that you would not get somewhere else. Along with the menu you choose from, you will also receive an amuse bouche from the chef and an ice in between courses - just a taste but a treat nevertheless. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a relaxed meal with impressive decor and views outside, not really a place for kids - the meal will take too long and they will get bored.

If you want a true culinary experience this place is absolutely the best in the region. Everything about this place is on another level, fantastic ambiance, food and service are truly 5 star not to mention excellent wines. It was so good we went 3 times during our 3 day stay in the region.

It was a wonderful experience. We had a knowledgeable & gracious server. Each course with Signature wine pairing was elegantly presented and delicious. Timing of serving each course was impeccable. A yable by the window offered a glorious view of the vineyard! Thanks Peller!

Peller Estates was exactly what we needed. A nice get away from the city. The dining room was elegantly set up with breath-taking views of the winery. Our dining experience was worth the drive. From our server, Josh who super attentive and knowledgeable, to the well presented and delicious food - pretty much tried everything between the 4 of us, topped off with the wines of our choice was fabulous. We enjoyed every morsel with flowing conversations without being rushed. The icing on the cake was, we met Jason Parsons who was absolutely friendly and graced us with a group photo. My mom was in her element!
Thank you for a wonderful and relaxed dining experience!

Peller is my go-to restaurant in Niagara-on-the-Lake for a consistently quality dining experience. All components of a great meal are there: great service with well-trained staff, a menu that features creative yet approachable options, wonderful atmosphere - what more could you want?

Gorgeous dining room that just makes guests feel elegant and special. Excellent service from knowledgeable and professional staff. We enjoyed the creative menu offerings and always have the 5-course tasting menu. This time, however, we were a bit disappointed that the tasting menu had 3 seafood courses and two of them were cold or room temperature (they seemed to have been prepared in advance). And, these two cold/room temp seafood courses followed a beef tartare, so it was a rather strange and unsatisfying meal overall. Good choice of wines from the onsite vineyard property, but they are rather overpriced for the quality.
While we feel let down by the chef on this last visit, we will go back again (this was our 5th visit) because the room is so lovely and the service is so good.
