This restaurant has been notorious for from stealing from their staff for years. They charge customers a percentage of their banquet bill for a "gratuity" and then keep the money for themselves despite paying their, constantly turned over, wait staff less than minimum wage. If you're going to check the restaurant out, regardless, take cash to tip your server, because... More

I spent 3 days in Niagara falls in May 2013 and I was really looking forward to our dinner at the love boat. We had already tried a restaurant named with a connection to boats in Disney land and had a horrible experience. The restaurant had just opened a few days ago because they didn't have anything and were not... More

My family and I were staying at the imperial for one night to see family, the front desk advised us to try the love boat. As I always do when traveling is to look at trip advisor to see other reviews. When reading the reviews I almost didnt come in!!! Thank goodness we tried it. The seafood was cooked perfect!... More

My hubsand and I went to the love boat for dinner last night. I had the prime rib special and my husband had the chicken parmesan. The food was blah at best. At 7 pm on a Friday night we were the only customers in the restaurant, which made us feel uncomfortable! The best thing about our experience was the... More

Dinner was just okay. The grilled shrimp was good. My husband had the prime rib special. He enjoyed his meal. Service was not bad, but not that great either. The atmosphere was acceptable. We did feel we got our monies worth. However, while traveling we like to have unique experiences. This was not one of them.

My wife and I had dinner at the Love Boat Labor Day weekend (Aug 2013). It may be the worst meal and the worst dinner experience, we have ever had. We frequently dine out at home (Toronto) and other cities, and although there have been some unfortunate experiences, we usually vote with our dollars, and do not go back to... More

We were 2 families with 5 kids - everything, the drinks, the food and the service were outstanding. We come from Montreal and are demanding customers - they exceeded all our expectations! The service, including handling the 5 children was tops!!!! Bottom line - we reserved for tonight again! My understanding is that it is a new team running this... More

I randomly walked into this restaurant with family and friends and wow, what a surprise! We had one of the best meals of all time. We are Italian from Montreal and have been to some of the top restaurants in North America. This is easily in the top 5. Home cooking, great service, you need to go asap. We already... More

Should advertise as GREAT Italian, not steak and seafood. Drinks were good, wine was very good. Husband had steak and it was okay. My chicken parmigiana was very good. The pasts may have been homemade and the sauce was superb! Wait staff was attentive.
