Frequently Asked Questions

Are you organic?

The property is not organic but rather a farm and vineyard that engages in sustainable farming practices. The name was chosen to celebrate the notion that everything good comes from the earth.

Is your restaurant vegetarian?
We celebrate food in all its glory and deliciousness. At The Good Earth dietary restrictions and alternative diets are never an afterthought. Please inform us in advance and we will be happy to accommodate your needs. We always have vegetarian and gluten free options.
What is the dress code?
We are “farmhouse chic”. Please dress for the weather remembering that Mother Nature is our air conditioner on the patio!
Do you offer wine tours?
We are unable to offer daily wine tours however we do have some options for larger wine clubs or groups (min 12/ max 20). Please call 905.563.6333 for more details.
Do you host private events such as corporate events, rehearsal parties, and weddings?
Our small size limits our ability to host large private functions.Please contact us to receive more information regarding your special event.
How would you describe your restaurant style?
We start from scratch in our kitchens every day, preparing food from ingredients sourced as locally as possible. We celebrate the seasons and the many cultural cuisines which make up Canada. We like to describe our food as “farm-to-table”. Our food is made with love and care. We embrace the philosophy that good food takes time to make and deserves time to be enjoyed.
Do we need a reservation?
We are a small and very popular venue so reservations are always strongly recommended. We have limited ability to seat groups larger than 6 people at one table. Please book through Open Table.
Do you have outdoor seating? Is there shade?
Much of our seating is outdoors on our beautiful patio. For that reason we STRONGLY advise our guests to wear sunscreen, hats and dress for the temperature. While we have covered areas, we cannot guarantee you a shady spot. There are also times when we cannot use our patio umbrellas because conditions make it unsafe for patrons and staff.
Do you have a full beverage offering?
We are a craft winery and make all our wine on our property. We are pleased to offer all of our current releases in the bistro and offer complimentary wine tasting to our bistro patrons. Wine can be enjoyed in 3, 6 and 9-ounce servings or by the bottle. Unfinished wine can be resealed and taken home for enjoyment later. We also offer craft beer and a broad range of non-alcoholic beverages.
Where can I purchase your wine?
We offer our wine in our retail store adjacent to the bistro.  You are also able to purchase our current portfolio of wines securely on-line.  We do not sell through the LCBO.
What’s the best way to find out what is going on?
We have a number of enjoyable, affordable and unique offerings taking place throughout the year. To find out what is happening, our current menu, hours of operation, wine events etc. sign up for our monthly e-newsletter below. It is the best and easiest way to stay on top of our news!
Do you take walk-ins?

Yes!   We do our best to accommodate you if we can.

Why do you sometimes have empty tables but say that you can’t seat us?

Sometimes there’s a no-show or a last minute cancellation, in which case we have to rely on walk-ins to fill that table. But the bigger reason is that we don’t want to rush our guests, so everyone gets their table for around 2 hours. That means if a reservation ends at 12:30 we may not have a reservation at that table until 2:30 pm.  We don’t want to jam someone in for only 90 minutes so that table will sit empty until the reservation shows up. Trust me, we want all our tables full every second of every day, but seating reservations is playing Tetris with tables.  Sometimes a few of them sit empty for the greater good.

Why can’t we sit outside sometimes on a sunny day?

At times we have very strong winds that make setting our tables outdoors a hazard.  We love to have guests outdoors but we have to be mindful of flying glassware.  Believe me, we want to have our guests enjoying our beautiful property!

Is there a wine tasting fee?

Yes, as a small craft producer we have to charge an $8 fee for a flight of 3 wines.  This fee is waived with the purchase of $25.

Is The Good Earth a “child friendly” destination?

As a winery focused bistro we are by definition an adult destination. While we welcome wine and food enthusiasts with children we do not have a “children’s menu” or playground.  The Good Earth is a busy property and a working farm so we request that visiting children are supervised at all times.
