We've had dinner and breakfast here in the past, so we thought we would try breakfast here again on Saturday morning. In the past we found this restaurant to be okay - not great. After our breakfast on Saturday we will never return!! The service was incredibly slow, the food was only mediocre. Seriously how long does it take to... More

We returned to this restaurant after a 25 year absence for our 25th wedding anniversary. The staff were attentive and not pretentious. Fred, the sommelier spent quite a bit of time with us with recommendations of wineries to visit the next day. He even prepared us an itinerary! His wine recommendation for our meal was perfect! I had the fresh... More

Niagara-on-the-Lake is as quaint and charming a town as it gets. Especially in the evening when the lights come on. Escabeche fits perfectly in this setting with its Victorian style. The ambiance of this restaurant is fairy tale like. The service was impeccable. The food was exquisite, even for a vegetarian. And the desserts.. Forget about it! Dinner at Escabeche... More

We stayed at the Prince of Wales and were looking for a special dinner. After a look around town we came back to Escabeche as it had the best menu, setting and ambiance. The service was great from the moment we walked in, the staff are friendly and knowledgable on the food and wines and not OTT. The food was... More

My wife and I had our first dinner as husband and wife here 32 years ago and the present experience only strengthens the wonderful memories. Excellent food, wonderfully prepared with the most attentive service and charming surroundings. Ask for Alex as your waiter. The hotel has maintained its wonderful atmosphere while updating the facilities without changing the ambience. Most reasonable... More

We went for a pre-theatre lunch on a Saturday at noon. Our waiter was not knowledgeable about the menu. When I asked him what a tostada was he said he didn't know. We asked if it was like a fajita and he nodded and said yes yes. I saw it served to another diner and it was nothing like a... More

The food was excellent as was the service, but the best part was the atmosphere...what a beautiful hotel and location...we enjoyed just looking around and absorbing the atmosphere.

Great Service and good selection on the menu although I was surprised that the menu didn't include more local/regional foods considering we were there in August at peak season for local produce. Enjoyable nonetheless.

The breakfast buffet was included, which had a generous selection of traditional breakfast dishes. Any breakfast included in the room rate that is not continental is nice. The ambiance of the restaurant is nice and we enjoyed it as a family.
