Ravine Vineyard Winery Restaurant
Amazing ambience and super friendly staff. Loved the fresh produce and Ravine wine. Awesome vineyard experience
Restaurant was busy did not have enough staff. Server was poor not attentive enough not very personable. Husbands fish lacked flavour. My chicken was spectacular. Dessert of peach cobbler barely edible. Booked over a month ago and could not accommodate a table overlooking the vineyard disappointing.
Really fantastic lunch! Lovely wines and great seasonal food.
Great service provided by Barb! Great food and great ambiance. Looking forward to going back.
We had reserved a table for six people right by the window on the lower level, specifically and personally spoke to the hostess who assured us that we would have that table. We were hosting two couples from out of town who were celebrating their 60th wedding anniversaries. I might mention that we are also Ravine wine Club 262 members, and have been Ravine wine club members for several years. As a wine club member, one of the perks is that we are allowed preference over others for the selection of table when reserving. Upon arrival we were seated in the corner on the upper level. We were not happy. The same hostess was there and was very embarrassed as she remembered us but not our request and had given away our table to another group of six. She assured us that as soon as the group of six left we would get their table. That is NOT what we had asked for. Our reservation had been made for 6:30 pm. By 8 pm we were still awaiting for that table (and had not had dinner). We were finally given the table at 8:30 pm. It was also extremely noisy, with many patrons speaking so loudly that I couldn't hear my own conversation but could verbatim tell you what the next tables were discussing. Fortunately our wonderful server, Jason, worked very hard to compensate. We were not charged for our three glasses of wine that the group of six ordered.
The food was delicious and overall it was a great experience for my parents 47th anniversary!
I do not rate very many things Outstanding, but the meal we had was so good , we couldn't remember when we had such delicious food....the drinks, the Lamb BLT, grain salad, pasta dish...everything was cooked perfectly! We have never been disappointed eating at Ravine, but we really enjoyed this last visit. We will, of course be back!
A beautiful setting and fantastic dinner! We really enjoyed all parts of our meal, so much so that we went back two days later to try their charcuterie and cheese plate. Our only complaint during dinner was the fruit flies were all over - so perhaps they can investigate some natural fruit flycatcher.
It took over an hour to get our mains. We waited about 30-40 minutes after having oysters and a cheese board. Our water glasses were often empty and the menu was incredibly limited with few options for vegetarians.
Place was amazing. Food was great. Complimentary wine and Charcuterie board from Paul for our 1 year anniversary.
Drinks, food, service...everything was perfect! We will absolutely be returning and highly recommend to everyone!
Hi Allie, Thanks for the review! We love knowing that our guests enjoyed their experience and it brings great pride to our team. I'll pass along the review and we look forward to your return.
I have nothing good to say.
Not good. Not good. Still want me to say lousy.
I love this place. It makes me want to breathe in and slowly let the air out. It is the country atmosphere I suppose. The service staff are always just terrific and I do so love those checkered black and white shirts. Would like one for myself!!!! My most recent visit with some friends was a little disappointing in that they ordered the hamburger which I love and felt the taste was off. Apparently there is some sort of fish sauce in the mix which is what may have caused the taste discomfort. In any event, the restaurant handled it with outstanding flair. No fuss, they just automatically cancelled the payment. Amazing. Yes I would go back again. Thank you.
An extremely well thought out menu with unique dishes. I live in NOTL and that was the best meal my wife and I have had in town. Period!
The food and wine was great! And the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming :)
It is a lovely setting and I have enjoyed my meals there before but this time I found it overpriced and not a very special meal. My friends had the BLT with lamb but both had to peel the fat/grissel from their sandwich. My serving of pasta was very small and the Chardonnay was very expensive. $50 for a glass of wine and a small bowl of pasta seemed rather over priced. The waitress was very good.
Food, ambience, service..everything was superb. Everything on the charcuterie board was house made and all delicious. My fave was the chicken liver parfait... Sooo good! The scallops was just as amazing. Looking forward to going back soon. Highly recommend for all occasions and foodies.
First bottle of wine was off, the waitress had to get another. The waitress forgot to give us bread and we had to ask. Not sure why they ask if you are celebrating a special occasion as they don't do anything special if you are.
Loved the charcuterie board and enjoyed the chardonnay!
Favourite nice place eat for dates. Great food.
Beautiful terrace, view, and setting. Excellent service with knowledgeable staff. Mains were excellent however the oysters were a poor value given they were small, and expensive at $42 for a dozen. Also, the menu didn't specify the origin of the oysters. Wine was very nice and priced at market value.
Amazing food, personable service and outstanding setting. Couldn’t ask for more. Can’t wait to go back.
Ravine is an estate winery of 34 acres, making small batches of a wide variety of wines. Although the farm has been in the family since 1867, the first vines were only planted in 2006. Not surprisingly many of their wines taste young with strong tannins. But the best part of our visit was having lunch on their spacious terrace. We arrived 1 hr early, but that was no problem for the hostess who showed us around and took us to a wine tasting. Lunch on the patio was very pleasant. Service was low key and friendly. After lunch we had fun walking the property and talking to the owner who told us of the history of the property and vineyard. We declined the formal tour, which was $30-40 CAD. Overall a great visit.
The food was excellent and our server was not only friendly and attentive but a great ambassador for the whole area, even giving us a handwritten list of things to do locally during our stay. A great evening all around.
Outstanding from start to finish!
Good venture and impressive in good and wine.
Such a lovely setting and no loud music blaring. Food was delicious. Drinks also excellent. Recommend highly. Our waitress was delightful.
We had a lovely lunch at Ravine! It was a weekday so not too busy and it was easy to get a table. Of course the view and ambiance was fantastic. The food was great, although next time I'll try the pizza. Before lunch we had a tasting with quite the entertaining host in the tasting room. We will be back in September!
The restaurant was about 20% capacity but we were ushered to area not preferable to us.
The table/area of our choice was not used the whole period while we were there!
Food was at best ordinary in contrast to the steep prices on the menu.
On a sunny day, I cannot imagine there are too many more beautiful locations to have lunch in the region. The service was excellent as were the food and wine, so i would recommend.
Great menu - The oysters are delicious. The ambiance is amazing. Beautiful spot. I highly recommend!
Two things I would note:
1. If you are sitting outside ( which you should it’s amazing) bring a jacket or a blanket it gets chilly when the sun goes down.
2. Dress code leans more dressy than casual. We showed up in sundresses and flip flops after wine tasting all day - it was fine but we were a bit dressed down. Just something to note...
Lunch was lovely.Our appetizer(sweetbreads and scallops) was delicious.
Found the hamburgers too thick with the double patties. (Had to remove one patty)
Overall a tasty lunch.
A lovely winery and dinning experience.
Warm, welcoming, good food. Charlie at the wine tasting bar was fantastic!
Delicious farm to table menu with local seasonal selections. Casual patio or comfortable indoor dining. Wine pairings and view of vinyards. Wine, cheese, and preserves shop on site.
Jen was our server and she was fantastic. Food quality was outstanding overall. Delicious wines! We will be back!
Thanks Elizabeth! I will let Jen and our Chef know of your compliments. We appreciate the review and look forward to seeing you again.
The food was very good .. The service , wine, view somewhat impeded by tent
..did not like the TV on.. like a sports bar.. We don’t come to ravine for a sports bar atmosphere
The tomato salad Was delicious but included some tops with core..
It was still an enjoyable evening.. main course of Halibut and veggies.. delicious
Always consistently good and enjoyable. Ravine has never disappointed us.
