Great experienece

Really nice local and seasonal menu. We enjoyed the salads, duck confit, venison and the lemon bar dessert. Everything was super tasty and wonderfully presented. A must try for anyone interested in something other than chain restaurants in Niagara Falls.

My husband and I enjoyed the experience at AG. They have a farm to fork concept which we tend to appreciate. Our waiter was attentive but not pushy. My Spring Beet & “Victory” Leaves Salad was delicious as was the beef tenderloin which was cooked to perfection. My husband enjoyed the duck. There was a patron at a neighboring table... More

The finest meal Iv ever had (in a basement). Favourite dish was the Hand Rolled Pappardelle Noodles in bolognaise sauce with rapini and garlic cream lemon spiked ricotta. If your looking for something to round out the smaller portions then order this, its heavy, tasty and a generous portion. We also ordered the Winter Beet & "Victory" Leaves Salad, Braised... More

We came to celebrate our anniversary and what a restaurant to pick. The decor and atmosphere was wonderful. The server we had Derek was so nice and friendly. Right away he said congratulations on our anniversary. The food was so delicious and perfectly cooked. I can see why it's been the top 100 best in Canada. I highly recommend this... More

This restaurant has outstanding food preparations. We enjoyed the attention to detail on every dish from the unique salad to the wonderful dessert. The service was outstanding with great knowledge of the food preparation and wines. Large wine and beer selections made the meal more enjoyable.

This has to be one of the best Kitchen's/Chef in Ontario...I don't ever think that there is any one "best" of anything really, but I do think there are Chefs/restaurants who belong in the upper handful, or top tier when speaking of dining experiences, and this place is one of them, regardless of where you are located.

We don't normally do the "fine dining" thing, but went for a special celebration. Service was excellent, atmosphere was great, live musicians were talented. Thank goodness that the server describes what is on the plate when placing it in front of you, because the chef takes ordinary foods and turns them into unrecognizable, indescribable delicious combinations. Absolutely memorable. Oh, and... More
