A little disappointed the patio wasn't open, as they felt it was too windy. Service was good, had the pickerel and the chicken.

In town visiting and really enjoyed the food, the service, and the delicious olive oils and balsamic vinegars. The Antipasto Share Plate and a few (many) glasses of Strewn wine are a must. Will definitely return.

We have eaten here many times both lunch and dinner. The food is excellent (not overpriced like many of the restaurants in Niagara on the Lake). Good service. Nice patio. BUT $5.75 for an espresso is outrageous

Exquisite flavours! The food was really delicious, thoughtfully prepared and well-presented. The salads were light and original. The mains were refreshing, and very tastey. And the desserts were light, sweet, and perfection. For non-drinkers the Balsamic Blast is a really good drink. This is my...More

I would make reservations just to be safe in the summer time for sure. Not sure if kids would enjoy the food it is vert good but different if your kids are picky. You might want to call a head and check to be sure.
