Fantastic food and service at the AG

Food is amazing. Choose the chefs menu. Seasonal selections with locally grown. Affordable 5 star dining. Great wine selection. So happy to see Lailey on the wine list! Food and wine was just under $100 per person. I look forward to returning.

We came here for my dad's birthday last November. I wanted it to be special, so I picked this place based on the reviews here. It was not what I expected. The place looks nice, but I didn't like the fact that it was in the basement. We were staying at the Hilton and as the weather was nice that... More

Great Service. Delicious food. I had the lamb shank and it was falling right off of the bone. My husband had a scallops dish. He was a little disapointed because the menu had made it seem like scallops were the star of the dish and when it arrived there were only 2 scallops on the plate. When he expressed his... More

Easily one of the best meals my wife and I have had on a vacation. The decor was lovely, and the waitstaff prompt and attentive. I had the roast rabbit and truffle crepes to start, she had the Jerusalem artichoke. Both absolutely to die for. I also indulged in the ice wine cocktail which I could have enjoyed about seven...

To cap our trip to Niagara Falls on our 25th Anniversary, I took my wife for a nice quiet dinner. It's our first time in this place so we didn't really know what to expect. My wife has put up with me for a long time so I'm not really worried if I screw up one more night with my... More

My wife and I were staying at the Sterling Inn and our package included a meal at AG Inspired Cuisine. It was one of the best meals I've ever had. I'm not a fine dining type of guy, basically can't afford it, but decided to do something special for my 25th anniversary, and am I ever glad I did. Everything... More

Based on reviews on Trip Advisor, my boyfriend and I decided to check this place out. We were not disappointed. The place has a very intimate and romantic feel to it. The service was outstanding and the food was great. I had the braised Elk and it was delicious not the least bit gamey. My boyfriend had the forest mushroom... More

We dined at night and the restaurant is in the basement, so you may get a different vibe in the daytime without window light, but we had a terrific time. The staff are friendly, helpful and the restaurant uses local products and wines from the region. On the Saturday evening we were there they had a singer to add to... More
