She made sure our reservation was just like we asked it to be: In the sun room, for the correct amount of seats, and accommodated our particular requests (vegetarian sandwiches only). The food was wonderful, and who ever... More

We were not rushed at all. The menu offered an excellent variety to choose from. They catered to people nearby us that had allergies to various items and they went out of their way to make sure these people's needs were met. It was a very relaxing, comfortable experience.

Dinner was very good. Service was friendly and attentive. We were staying at the hotel, so we asked for dessert to be sent up to the room. They were very obliging.

We had the 5 course tasting menu. The leek soup was bland and cold, salad ok, duck rillette good, pork belly outstanding, and apple dessert only ok but with an excellent black current ice cream, so the meal was all over the place. We had excellent service and our server Brad was very knowledgeable about the food and hotel.

It was very busy that night and the host insisted I had our reservation time incorrect. I think he just wanted a little extra cash but that did not happen. We went to the bar and waited. The food was excellent; we had the steak and lobster and they have the best Caesar Salad! Our server, Brad was very funny... More

I have been going to Niagara-on-the-Lake for most of my life and started going to Escabeche a few years ago. The experience never disappoints and we'll definitely come back again.
