Very much enjoyed our lunch. Everyone was full and loved the food. Our waitress was very attentive. Good timing with visits to the table and dishes cleared as she walked by from other tables. She’s a keeper!

L-O-V-E The Northern Estates Winery. Excellent service, food never disappoints, views are spectacular. Appreciated that the "background music" was "in the background, this time. Previous visit, that was an issue. If I have any less than glowing comments, it regards parking. The parking lot beside the restaurant is very small and the overflow parking is across a busy road that has a lot of traffic with no traffic lights or designated crossing area. I am hoping that is a work in progress.

We had a fabulous time out! Our first dining out experience since Covid-19. Food was great, both the hummus and charcuterie boards, Could have used a little more bread- especially the hummus. We got a generous jar of hummus, but ran out of things to eat it on. Service was lovely and we were able to have a great first time out since Covid disrupted everything.

The location on the river, architecture, perennials and surroundings are picturesque and set the tone for a fine dining and tasting experience but I was disappointed with the salad I ordered. Shaved fennel, prawn and orange....the orange pieces full of seeds, fennel so crunchy and tough it was difficult to chew and the prawns were tasteless, a nice dressing but otherwise disappointing. Fantastic service, the food just needs some more attention to detail!
