Difficult to find but worth the effort

Forget the view. Located in the basement of The Sterling. However, it is a romantic get away with very good food, quiet atmosphere even with the live music, and a repeat for us. AG is the second best meal and best dining experience we had in Niagara (if you ignore the absence of a view).

A true culinary treat- attention to detail- personal service- Our party of four all ordered something different and each was delicious as well as presented with a chef's flair. We went on a Sunday night because we couldn't get reservations on Friday or Saturday- after eating there, I understand why. If I ever return to NF, this would be a... More

This place is wonderful. But very expensive. They use only local ingredients, including many they grow themselves. The menu changes frequently based on what's available on any given day. A great melange of flavors. And by the time you're done you will be full, unlike some fancy restaurants. Expect about $50 (CAN) per person. Maybe more if you order wine... More

I went here with my husband, who tried the seasonal three course dinner. While my husband's seasonal dishes were delicious, my entree really stole the show. I tried the signature dish, the Sterling Silver Tenderloin... which I was able to cut through with a butter knife. Simply outstanding. We also had wine pairings with our courses, recommended by our server,... More

Amazing dinner, service and ambiance. Have been four times now and never been disappointed. Always keen to try the newest dish created by the Chef Cory using local ingredients. You won't be disappointed.

Excellent! Started with warm salad, Sterling Sirloin as main entree and finished with creme brulee. I am a total foodie and have eaten in many high end restaurants. This is a place that you don't want to miss. Will definitely go back next time I am in Niagara.

Our dining at the AG was 100% based on the research we conducted through trip advisor. Presented as a French dining experience, yes for the portions, style and presentation, but I would probably say the food was much better described as farm to table or locally sourced. The wines presented from in this region were a great addition to the... More

Ate at the AG for dinner with a good friend completely based on trip advisor reviews. Not going to lie, we eat out, a lot. We are total foodies, she is a chef by trade. We were amazed at the delicious menu, mix of flavours and textures for each course. Drinks were also original, delicious and they have a great... More
