Dined here with my husband and thoroughly enjoyed it. Cannot beat the vineyard view, the quality of the fresh, local ingredients and the simple yet elegant preparation of food never disappoints. We have been here a few times before for lunch but this was our first time for dinner. Recommend the charcuterie plate and the smoked pork chop. Delicious! Service was excellent (kudos, Cheryl). We will definitely be back.

We'd made reservations for the Private Reserve Tasting (at $10/person this turned out to be a FANTASTIC deal), but showed up early and popped in to the restaurant. Although we didn't have reservations, they served us drinks and appetizers us in the waiting area until a table was ready. We were so comfy where we were at we just stayed put!

Next we were ready for our tasting. We were very pleasantly surprised that the tasting included charcuterie along with the reserve wines. Our host, Michael, was lively, knowledgeable and interesting. He clearly knew the story behind each bottle and spent 90 minutes with us.

We spent 5 days in Niagara-on-the-Lake touring vineyards. This is the ONE vineyard I pretty much told everyone else they must see. Thoroughly enjoyed the entire visit.

Came to Ravine on our way back home. WE had tasted many wines over three days. But our interest was soon sparked by the high energy of the staff. After inquiring what our tastes were, the seemed to take pride in finding something we would enjoy. They were indeed successful. They also have a wide selection of cheeses to allow the creation of a perfect picnic.

Ravine was the first stop on our tour of Niagara-on-the-lake wineries and I must say, this was a great place to start. The young lady, Karen I believe?, giving us our tasting was very talkative and knowledgable about the vines, the vines, and even in things to do in the area and surrounding cities.

The property is a beautiful small sized vineyard offering great scenery for their resturant and a great place to stroll.

The Ravine resturant was a great choice for starting out with lunch for the day. You should make a reservation as they looked like they were getting busy towards the end of our meal.

Should you choose this winery you will not be dissapointed. The wines were excellent offering something for everyone. The staff was helpful and the tasting was a great value.

Passed on our bikes and decided to go in.

Delicious wine tasting (loved both Chardonnays) and a lovely atmosphere.

A wedding was about to start (cool place to get hitched!) so we didn't linger but wished we could have tried the restaurant. Next time.
