Great Food

I had the fish and chips. Surprisingly good. The ambiance was peaceful and the staff was friendly and very welcoming. Our server was friendly and on point, and the prices were reasonable for the area.

The Secret Garden is a fantastic restaurant! The breakfast was fast, fresh and delicious! The French Toast and omelet were perfect! The place is clean, has a great view of the falls and friendly service. Also the prices are reasonable! Well worth the visit. Love it!!!

We had lunch with our relatives there. Day was sunny but fresh so we opted to eat inside. Beautiful view of the falls. Pleasant server. The food was ok and reasonably priced - nothing spectacular but then our relatives are from France so it's hard to beat that.

We were welcomed so well here, the staff and the service are excellent and the food to die for. The restaurant is very pleasant and homely with Patio dining looking over beautiful views of the falls So if you find yourselves at Niagra Falls,this is a must place to visit.

I was so pleasantly surprised with the food quality and service of the Secret Garden. It was exceptionally good. I ordered breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs, fresh baked white bread, lean Canadian bacon, and fresh fruit. Delicious and fresh! A nice view of New York and the American Falls.

Stopped for breakfast, and was pleasantly surprised. Sat on patio overlooking the falls, and had a wonderful meal. The waiter was attentive, and it was reasonably priced,(actually spent less then IHOP). Will definitely return!

Stunning location and old building with a nice view of the park and falls. Great lunch place in the sun. The waiter was friendly and helpful and the service was quick. The food was adequate, nothing to complain about but nothing spectacular on what we ordered. Never had olives on a Ceaser salad before but I like it. I would... More

This year I am returning to The Secret Garden Restaurant . I am bringing friends so they enjoy the family atmosphere and wonderful Gluten free food. The Family run restaurant has members that have a gluten intolerance and are Celliac they are knowledgeable so I trust them
