Fine food!!!

Expensive but fine food. My husband and I decided to splurge. Food was great. It was a little pricey for two people but we enjoyed our visit.

We were greeted with great service as soon as we walked in the door. The amuse bouche was a delicious surprise. We decided to go all in and indulged in the seasonal appetizer, a sweet potato crab cake plus one of their regular selections which was recommended by the waiter. Everything was cooked and presented to perfection. It is a... More

Although at the upper end of the price range in Niagara I can't fault the value for money. I've dined here twice, once choosing al a carte and once the tasting menu and both times the service was attentive, the food excellent and good wines on the list. The actual access to the restaurant is not exactly attractive as it... More

My husband, daughter and I came to AG to celebrate a birthday last night and were not disappointed. My husband and I had dined here about a month ago for the first time and enjoyed it so much he wanted to come back for his birthday. Our waiter, Derek, was pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu and the wines. More... More

Service was good, as was the meal. It just doesn't equal another restaurant in town, close by. Also, it's a bit more expensive, and hard to find, since the signage is limited and it's in the basement.

I am probably one of the few rebels writing a poor review of AG here, but my wife and I were just left very disappointed by our overall experience, especially on night that is as special as Valentine's. I am sure that people overall have had great experiences here, but my experience was quite the contrary. First, we made reservations... More

The food at this restaurant is great. Very good flavor and I have absolutely no complaints about the looks and the flavor. I did order my steak rare and it came out medium but the flavor of the dish was very very good. Our waitress in my opinion was one of the best I've seen in years. Made sure her... More

My husband and I haven't had a magical experience at a restaurant for quite some time now, and AG far exceeded the expectations of a fine dining restaurant experience..
