The restaurant is clearly trying to achieve. The setting is lovely. The service was good. The food was okay but generally lacked flavour and character. The pasta dish, for example, had no taste, although it was cooked well. The online menu suggested that they would have dry aged beef, which is certainly not what was presented; to be fair, there was a caveat that the menu could change due to availability. As we were going in the chefs were discussing how much chicken to cook and they noted that they had one left over from the previous night, which did not inspire confidence. The dining room is all hard surfaces and too noisy to suit us. The food was okay, and there was a lot of it, but I can't see going back unless the food (and wine) substantially improves.
In our opinion the best restaurant in the County. Creative and beautifully presented dishes using local products. Scott McInerney's beet carpacio with house smoked salmon was a particularly inspired combination. We both had the fish which was excellent and very well prepared highlighting it's freshness. The house made custard with peach preserve was lovely. The weakest dish was the cheese with fermented plum which overpowered the delicate cheese. Overall a great meal and well paced attentive service. Check it out when in PEC.
What an outstanding experience! We absolutely loved the Chef’s six course tasting menu as we celebrated my husband’s Birthday! The quality and attention to detail created a farm to table dinner to remember! The ambiance of the restaurant and waterfront location added to the peaceful and beautiful setting! Highly recommended for all foodies 🥰!
Great vibe, scenery is wonderful, food was delicious, service outstanding.
The service was spectacular. Our waiter sommelier was knowledgeable on top of being extremely kind and generous.
Food wise, some plates stood out more than others (the home made pita bread was divine) and the plate presentation lacked finesse at times.
Overall, great experience
The food and service were outstanding. The prices were very reasonable for both the food and wine. The location was amazing and the staff very professional. We even had a visit from the chef which was a nice touch.
The only issue we had was transportation. We were enjoying the lovely wine so chose not to drive. We managed to get a cab from Picton to dinner but really struggled to get a ride back later at night.
Thanks to the Waupoos staff!

It was a very good meal, and we recommend it to everyone who wants to have a good evening. The place is outstanding, the staff very attentive and courteous and the very talented chef certainly has a bright future ahead of him.
We really loved our dinner at Waupoos Winery. We enjoyed all of the food except the mains. The chicken was dry & the texture of the beef was off even though it was cooked correctly. The waitress never refilled our wine & our bottle sat empty for awhile before we flagged her down for another drink. Otherwise, it was a stunning location & the rest of the food was excellent.
We had a wonderful time there. The food was excellent and the Manager and rest of staff very friendly and informative. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone
We had lunch here on Sunday and had the fixed price menu. The atmosphere was breathtaking but the service was so slow. It was over an hour before we got our main coarse which was surprising. The restaurant was not that busy, and given there was a set menu you would think it wouldn’t take that long. Also others that were seated way after us received their food in half the amount of time. It’s like we were forgotten about. We ended up having to take our dessert to go. For a lunch that cost over $100 I wasn’t impressed.
Very nice food in a lovely setting. Highly recommend.
We really enjoyed a flavourful meal with a beautiful view from the terrace. It was also great that they had kid’s meal options too. The service was excellent too
The food is unbelievable and the atmosphere is wonderful. Andrea was our server and she is incredible.
The chef came out to see us at the end and explained a lot of the prep process which was really cool and very kind.
Love this place!
An absolutely amazing meal and experience. In the top 3 of restaurant meals I have had in my life Highly recommend.
It was a surprise find in PEC.
waupoos winery was great. the prix fix menu was perfectly curated for a great experience. Ana was an amazing server as well! Highly recommend!
Excellent service and food, very attentive service, good ambience. Well designed menu to taste the freshness local ingredients.
Lovely evening with the special Countylicious menu. Food and wine were great.
Wonderful dinner at Waupoose Restaurant!
My wife and I stayed at the ClaFeld House across the street from the Waupoose winery restaurant this past Saturday. We lucked out as that was the last day before it closed for the season. We chose from the countylicious menu. Everything from the cesar salad, smoked salmon, beef and lamb to the dessert was fabulous!
The service was excellent. We were very impressed with the COVID-19 protocols and how seriously they adhered to them.
We hope to stay at the house again this summer and will reserve for dinner at this restaurant once again for sure!

Everything was great. The host was friendly, attentive and was pleasant to chat with. The food was hot and delicious, while the lighting and music were at appropriate levels. The owner had a very fun and colourful face mask on and genuinely wanted us to have an excellent evening at his establishment.
Service and food excellent. Beautiful location overlooking the vineyard on Lake Ontario.
Excellent choices, quality and generous portion size. We had very attentive service in a lovely setting.
Wonderful food and service. Would certainly recommend and will definitely be back.
Enjoyed the food. Tables spaced well apart and felt comfortable eating there.
Love the fact that most of the ingredients for the meal came directly from the County.
Everything we ate was delicious. Highly recommend the bread pudding!
We'll be back.
2020 Countylicious dinner; first time there for dinner. Surprised at the simplicity of the ambience given the prices but the food and service were good.
We always look forward to going to Waupoos winery for dinner during Countylicious. We particularly like the less frenzied pace of the off season. Smoked salmon and Caesar salad were excellent, I had the pickerel which was good and my husband had the steak which was cooked perfectly. We both enjoyed our desserts (creme brûlée’s and bread pudding) immensely. We were happy with our wine choice although we would have preferred a larger selection. Service started off a little slow but made up for it as the evening went on. Would definitely recommend! Bring your mask and wear it whenever staff approach your table.
The staff was lovely and the meal was delicious. All COVID safety precautions were carefully taken.
Great setting and delicious food. Dinner menu was a bit pricey but well worth it for the quality.
Perhaps the experience would have been better had it not been during pandemic measures. We were cold, as the door was left open. It was frustrating to see a couple seated in the inner circle, in warmth and luxurious chairs, while the rest of us ate in the outer circle. The food may have been delicious but it had been over salted.
There was absolutely no ambiance in this restaurant. Fluorescent lights were on and the waiter’s covid mask was Halloween themed with a scary bloody clown smiling on it! Very unprofessional and unsettling for what was supposed to be a finer dining experience at a winery. There were also buckets full of dirt and unpotted plants right behind our table as if we were dining in a greenhouse. The food was okay but the real issue was the total lack of ambiance.
Our server was great and we feel special beings checked in from time to time even by the chef to ensure we have a perfect thanksgiving dinner.
Great service and wonderful place to bring the family.
Ribs were not cooked to perfection.
A bit disappointed.
Cold in the restaurant.
Covid precautions were very well respected.
Would not return.
They need to light the walkway from restaurant to parking!
It was pitch black!
Ordered a steak with a side poutine. They served my steak on top of the poutine. Ordered a bottle of wine and they gave us plastic cups. Also served me a warm cider. Apologized for the temperature of the cider and offered me ice for it. It took over an hour for the table beside me to get their food as-well.
I ate there in the past and had a great experience and time but this time I spent 120$ and really came out feeling like it wasn’t worth it.
We were greeted by a rude host, no water was served. Beer was warm without carbonation and waitress offered us ice cubes to go with it. We waited 85 minutes for sandwiches and when we asked why, the staff answered that they were focusing on making steaks and chicken off the "after 4p" dinner items. Food was not terrible once we got it but if you are looking for elevated food synonym of eating at a winery then this is 100% not it. Expect overpriced pub food with little taste and poor service that is becoming increasingly a trend in Prince Edward County. If you thought they did not like tourists before COVID-19, you have seen nothing yet.
The best way to describe this restaurant is "meh". The food is passable, but not exquisite, if you are thinking you are going to a winery in Niagara, where the restaurants are great, it is not.
Started off with the caprese salad and poutine, salad was good, poutine they used processed gravy, unfortunately they do not make their own...salad was a 4 out of 5 poutine was a 3 out of 5
I had the chicken, skin was rubbery, not crispy, polenta was good. my date had the ribs with fries which was reminiscent of a chain restaurant that sells side ribs, both were a generous 3 out of 5
It is a winery and they have barrels of fermenting things inside the restaurant which would account for the sour smell that you get a whiff of every once in a while.
The restaurant is a cool concept. But... It was cold, had a very strong garbage smell (the lake?) and flies! For our anniversary with a request for a window seat we were seated at the back next to a storage area.
It is definitely a casual and energetic fun place to grab a burger
Good food but unwelcoming attitude from the Manager (?) front of house staff. Wouldn’t go back or recommend.
First of all, the property alone is stunning. You are in the vineyard in a circular restaurant. Our weather was chilly and we could not sit outside, but they made sure to allow us to have an excellent view of the water. Our server was super bubbly and friendly and had no problem telling us the specials and recommendations. We had the smoked salmon plate to start and it was DELICIOUS. After for our main course we had the 28 aged prime rib and to say delicious, was an understatement.....it was UNREAL! The food melted in our mouths.
It was a super nice treat and we would DEFINITELY go back. One of the nicest meals we have had in ages!
