Posh ambience. We've been coming here for years and whereas the food is still very good, I had to hunt for dishes that weren't too spicy. However, the food is always way above average and I love the surroundings so I shall return. The drawing room where they serve Afternoon Tea looked intriguing... read more

On the final night of our stay at the Prince of Wales Hotel, my friend and I made dinner reservations at the hotel restaurant, Escabeche. Upon entering the restaurant, we were immediately greeted by a friendly hostess, who went out of her way to make us feel welcome and to accommodate our specific seating request (my traveling companion was in...

We visited Escabeche today in the glorious Prince of Wales Hotel in Niagara on the Lake for the family celebration of my Mom's 83rd Birthday and my Brother's 60th. Our party of seven received impeccable service and exquisite cuisine. To begin with, it is quite simple to make a reservation online which includes an email reminder closer to the date.... More

My mom and I went here for a special dinner. I made reservations ahead of time with a note about gluten allergies. We were promptly seated and the service was great. The wine sommelier was very helpful in suggesting the perfect wine for our meal. They brought me special gluten free bread which was really appreciated and we were able... More

My wife and I both had the same meal except for desert. The Caesar salad was easily one of the 2 or 3 best I have had in my life! Steak (I'm very fussy) was brought out as asked, between Medium rare and medium. Now I think it's an art form to make steak outstanding, and they did so with... More

My wife and I booked a getaway holiday in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, with room and tickets to plays at the Shaw Festival, but we were on our own for restaurant meals. We decided to have dinner at the Prince of Wales Hotel, in their Escabèche Restaurant. We were running a little late, and so we booked for 6:15, knowing that with... More

We visited Niagara on the Lake for the day with friends on our recent trip to Canada. We spotted this delightful hotel (The Prince of Wales) opposite the park and decided to have a spot of lunch on the verandah. The food was excellent as was the choice of drinks, especially the cocktails (non alcoholic and alcoholic). The service was... More

Superior service, great food. Highly recommend it. We had a wonderful bottle of wine, recommended by the sommelier, which was very reasonably priced.

I had two meals here. We arrived and wanted a quick lunch. The servers are excellent. The food choices work a bit to hard at being upscale and unique while quality and taste were lacking. The next day, I had a breakfast buffet after find nothing to my liking on the menu. The breakfast menu tends heavily towards carbohydrates. I... More
