A generally pleasant dining experience. Food is nice and the patio is lovely. There is a separate vegetarian menu, which is very nice. Service, however, was annoying. We spent much time searching for a dish that could be made vegetarian without much compromise to the taste. Eventually we asked the waitress for help. “Oh,” she said, “we have a vegetarian... More

We took a day trip to Niagara on the lake during our honeymoon in Ontario. Epicurean was recommended to us by a server we had in Niagara Falls that was once employed at Epicurean. What a mistake! The food was very overpriced for what was served (or shall I say, what we served our selves). My husband ordered the burger... More

We decided to stop and have a bit to eat at the Epicurean and they had a wonderful selection of foods and all very fresh. I had a lovely tuna sandwich on pumpernickel bread with a salad with poppyseed dressing and my husbands had the turkey and cheese sandwich with a salad and all was very fresh and tasty. We... More

This has to be the worst meal experience I have had in along time. four of us arrive and are seated. We wait 15 mins for the server to arrive. She pours one glass of water and run off. She returns 10 minutes later and does not pour anyone else water. Begins taking our orders. we ask to share a... More

Our visit to Niagara on the Lake, started off with supper at this lovely spot. Indoor and outdoor seating and a lovely ambience. Our dinners were fabulous. Filled with flavour and wine pairings were wonderful. The only let down was the bread offered to start which was dry and tasteless. Nonetheless, the pickerel was amazing, the salmon delicious. The spinach... More

This IS our first stop when arriving in NOTL. And we often come here to eat more than once as it is convenient, great selection, friendly staff, and reasonably priced. In good weather there is a pleasant deck area to eat outside. Food is fresh and tasty! Sometimes we also do dinner, and they are great at adjusting the menu... More

Made our third visit. Even when the place was far from full, the pace of service was slower than we preferred. Dressings on salads are light, which is fine, but in one case dressing was missing. My pasta with lamb seemed okay, but after tasting lamb shank at another restaurant the next day, I realized my dish didn't offer much... More

My boyfriend and I were visiting Niagra-on-the-Lake for the first time, and happened upon Epicurean between the lunch & dinner hour. We walked in to check it out, and were fortunate to meet Peter Brittain, Executive Chef. After a quick review of the menu, we jumped at the chance to make a reservation that evening. One of the most delicious... More

The outdoor patio was quiet and shady. The food was very tasty and well prepared-I especially liked the clam appetizer and the shared ice cream dessert.
