No wine pairings?! Huh? Food was good, atmosphere was good, service was fine but wine was amazingly awful with my chosen dinner. I asked about pairings and was told they don’t do that and was given a suggestion so I took it not being familiar...with the local wines they carry and it was fine with the salad but amazingly awful with the vegan dinner that was ordered at the same time as the wine and salad. Bring in the pairings and sell more glasses of wine!More

Wonderful little restaurants Within walking distance of the major attractions. Service was top notch and everything from the seasonal salad to the grilled salmon to the crème brûlée were cooked to perfection. It wasn’t a meal but an experience-highly recommend this gem!

Terrific atmosphere, just like an old cellar, below street level, wood beams, lovely ambience. Our server could not have been more helpful or pleasant. This place uses a pricing scheme I don't really like---five items for $85 (contrary to web site, there is no longer...a three item possibility) and you have to pay for five even if you only want three or four. An item is an appetizer or glass of wine or entree, and so on. There are surcharges for a 9 oz glass of wine or the steak entree. Our entrees were very disappointing. The salmon was surprisingly small and extremely undercooked (the server volunteered to cook more); the pork chop was very overcooked (no remedy for this). Given the pricing and quality of food, we probably won't go back. This said, the restaurant appears to be popular.More

In a town that resembles the Canadian version of Myrtle Beach with a main strip filled with souvenier shops and iHops, Weinkeller offers a refreshing escape. Discretely tucked away in an unpretentious building with exposed brick walls and low level ambient lighting. The uniqueness lies...in the fixed price menu with a 5 course offering that allows you to mix & match while cocktails count as a course. Not being a dessert fan I used my 5th course to get a cognac. The food was excellent but I was a bit disappointed with the upgrade (is that a Canadian thing) from Striploin to Filet. A bit chewy and the char was more than char, it was burned. Overall a great experience though and I would highly recommend to those that prefer local flair as opposed to Outback, Fridays, etc. You can get that anywhere in any town.More

My husband and I traveled from St. Louis, MO to Canada for the first time and ate dinner here to celebrate our anniversary. I have SEVERAL food allergies: soy, dairy, eggs and yeast. They were so gracious and helpful and made several trips back and...forth to the kitchen to double check with the chef and were able to make a VERY wonderful and perfectly safe meal for me. I was able to enjoy the experience as much as everyone else there. The atmosphere was amazing and we really appreciated everything Dan and Kaleigh did to make us feel special! I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant!More

Service is very friendly but the food was slightly disappointing. We had wine but the carafe was chipped, we wanted the oysters but they didn't have any so we had the beef carpaccio and the tuna ceviche. The panzanella salad on the carpaccio was just...2 handfuls of croutons however the micro greens were great. The beef was over done it was not raw as it should be and the tuna ceviche was more like a tuna adequate. The entrées were the pork chop and the Seafood Casino. Hum .. The pork chop was cooked very well and I opted for the apple cider reduction but the potato cake (I think that was what it was) was hard like a puck and I fear was not made that day but reheated. The seafood was good but the gnocchi was mushy and not very appealing. I like the concept and as a local was looking for a place we could go frequently but sadly our search continues as it was not seasonal by any stretch of the imagination. All heavy and as the restaurant got quite warm as the evening continued I think they need to consider a 'fresh' approach. We will go back in the fall but not in the heat of summer.More

Had a great meal and loved the menu concept where you can add a drink or two. The service was a treat and the restaurant was inviting. Recommend a try.

Jaz was very helpful, explained the menu, and made sure we enjoyed our experience with our various dietary quirks. The food was exquisite! I love my cedar plank salmon. Thank you for finding my friends and I a last minute table.

We went on a spontaneous trip to Canada and didn't have a reservation. Visited the Weinkeller the day we arrived in hopes of getting a reservation for the next night for dinner. We sat at the bar and had a drink, met the owner, Chris,...and he made it happen. Everyone was extremely friendly and it was the highlight of our trip. By far the best meal we've had since our trip to France last year, it's that impressive. The menu is simple but flavorful, creative, and fresh. We would gladly drive five hours back to Ontario just for another meal here.More

There is no dress code. Flip-flop sandals may be an issue. We dressed casually.
