Very very expensive with and super small serving sizes/ not filling but amazing scenery but very big drinking menu. The patio was sadly closed when we got there so it was a big disappointment.More

Thank you for taking your time to write a review. Sorry the patio was not open when you were here. Sometimes we have to make that hard decision not to serve outside, depending on weather and staff availability. We hope you try us again in...More

Hubby wanted us to go out for a nice lunch today and he couldn't have picked a better place. We started with oysters, you can never go wrong with local oysters. I had the seafood chowder. I have to say it is the best we...have had in 2 weeks travelling around the maritimes. Hubby had their reuben sandwich and the duck fat fried fries. I also had a glass of their white wine. It was very crisp, refreshing. Quite enjoyable. Would return if ever in the area againMore

We brought our small party of 10 to celebrate our wedding at Le Caveau. The food was delicious and everyone was pleased with their choices. Everyone ordered trout or hangar steak - both were excellent! The staff were attentive and kind without being intrusive. The...atmosphere in the restaurant was warm and inviting. It was the perfect setting for our small, valley wedding. We'll be back to celebrate our anniversary. Can't wait!More

We visited for lunch after reading great things about this restaurant. The food is ok - no wow factor. The sparkling wine we had with the meal was great as was the beautiful outdoor seating and fantastic service. But the food is just ok.More

My husband and I both did the 4-course tasting menu and I'm not sure we would go again. Staff was very kind, but service was slow and the restaurant was very loud. The first course was gravlax and it set the bar high, but unfortunately...we weren't as impressed with the 3 other courses, especially the main course - beef cheek over mashed potatoes. Lacked in flavour and appearance. The other 3 courses were however beautifully plated. Nice wine list too, including several international wines.More

The atmosphere, food, and wine is exceptional. The service is second to none. Never disappointed! Love sharing my favorite spot with clients and we send everyone here; those in town for an elopement and those celebrating with a small group of family and friends. They're...always happy with Le Caveau. Thank you!More

If you’re a foodie and appreciate excellent food, skip this spot. Way overpriced, mostly mediocre. Out of four dishes, one was terrible, two were mediocre, one was excellent: Amuse-bouche: uninspired, unremarkable Trout gnocchi: trout was tasty, but the “gnocchi” was definitely not (taste and texture...just like regular pasta). We commented to the server to this effect. She told us it was, just a different style, made with potato flour 🤷🏼‍♀️ Smoked duck: meh Squid ink seafood rigatoni: terrible. Overcooked seafood, tomato sauce bland and basic. Hangar steak: excellent, 5-star. If all of the food was of this caliber, the restaurant would deserve its reputation.More

Our family recently enjoyed an incredible meal at Le Caveau. We ate outdoors which was a special experience in the evening. The service was fantastic, the food incredible (including the vegan options and the suggested wine pairings outstanding. If you are thinking of going, do...it! I am still thinking about my meal 1 days later!More

We try to get to the Grand Pre Winery every year but had to miss last year during COVID. So glad we were able to come back! They now have added the Inn, too new it seems to be included in Trip Advisor so I'll...review it here, too. The restaurant is operated by Jason Lynch, son-in-law of the winery's owner. Excellent food with locally sourced ingredients and outstanding, enthusiastic service. The indoors caveau is tastefully decorated and homey, perhaps a little loud when full of diners (not an issue now during COVID). The outdoor "pergola" consists of several private pergolas around a spacious courtyard, with lovely seasonal plantings around and adjacent to the vineyard. Dined here both nights. All exceptional but the charcuterie/cheese plate takes first prize. Pictou County oysters come in a close second. The Inn has 6 spacious rooms in the family's former mid-19th century home. Some original features plus repurposed or remilled beautiful pine floors & gorgeous stairway (not handicapped accessible). Breakfast brought to room in AM. Our room #5 overlooks the beautiful central plaza of the winery with its decorative stonework.More

Where do I begin? Service was very good. Lacked atmosphere. Had been looking forward to this experience for weeks, three sisters treating ourselves. Trout gnocchi was delicious, chowder was tasteless, lacked seafood, the worst I ever had. The wagyu beef was very well presented and...very tasty and cooked to order. But! The trout entree was absolutely tasteless. Now the dessert! Cheesecake…..supposedly a work of art, a deconstructed cheesecake…. looked awful and definitely not what one would expect …was more like a mousse. Envoyer The only Sauvignon blanc in menu was unavailable. Would not recommend and will not return . Patio did look nice .More

Good evening, thank you for your message. We don't have a formal dress code, but ask for no sweat pants. Casual is fine. Some people certainly dress up, but it is not required at all. I hope this is helpful! Cheers
