We had the Braised Chicken Cacciatore and the Eastcoast Salmon. Both were prepared to perfection and made for an outstanding meal. The service was efficient and welcoming. We also had a flight of their wines to top off the evening. The best part was the bill was not outrageous. Be sure to make your reservation early. The Resturant books up... More

Visited for the restaurant's first winemaker's dinner. Very nice atmosphere with many guests of various backgrounds. Started with a root vegetable puree soup, then a roasted red beet salad on a bed of goat cheese. Great starters! Both courses were served with well paired wines which accented the flavors of the wine and food. Had some nice conversations with our... More

We were part of a 40+ group of seniors who had lunch following an organized tour of this educational training facility. The morning was extremely interesting and entertaining and included a chef’s cooking demonstration [risotto]. The meal was actually the icing on the cake as meal orders were pre-ordered and table staff took and delivered our drinks orders quickly and... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant. While our first visit was wonderful, we can't say the same of our dining experience this time. Three of us dined on Saturday evening. The restaurant was packed. We knew what we wanted and ordered wine, appetizers, and entrees. We were asked if we wanted bread and we said yes. We waited... More

This is a great place to find, try the college's wines and enjoy the view. I had pasta and a kale salad. Both were delicious and seasoned well.

My family and I were travelling to Niagara Falls and decided to swing by the outlets. We shopped into the evening and were getting hungry, and didn't know of a good place to eat nearby. We happened to stumble upon Benchmark and we were not disappointed. We did not have a reservation and the dining room was full. A very... More

We decided at the last minute to try The Benchmark restaurant. I had the chicken sandwich. It was loaded with grilled chicken breast, smoke bacon and lettuce. Mayo with mustard seeds and seasoned fries on the side. The chicken was goo and flavorful. The bacon was a nice thick slab which was lightly smoked. The bun was homemade. My date... More

Have had many fine meals at this restaurant so yesterday was a great disappointment. The food was cold and the service was slow despite the restaurant having few clients. In view of the prices charged, we will not return in the forseeable future.

Saw reviews and decided to visit this college restaurant. A lovely lovely day but we were the only two sitting outside. Not sure why, was gorgeous. New student year and perhaps that is why entrees were so slow. Turkey burger excellent, fries ok but lacking a little of the advertised ingredients lemon and thyme. House wine also very nice. Service... More
