“Gorgeous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

This is a gorgeous restaurant. I didn't even mind that it was right off the buffett restaurant because once you step inside, it is an entirely different experience.
Our waiter was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We ordered the pork rillettes, which was a nice surprise. We both enjoyed it very much. I ordered the lamb shank and my boyfriend ordered the chicken. Slight problems with both. The lamb was very fatty, it hadnt been rendered properly, so I had to pull a layer of fat off before I ate. It was incredibly delicious once I got past that though. The polenta was out of this world. The chicken was to come with truffle mashed potatoes, but truly neither of us could taste any truffle flavor at all. We buy our own truffles and use them in our own cooking, so we are aware of the flavor profile and expected more from Jamie Kennedy here.
The wine list was long and runs upwards of $12 a glass. I did have a pinot grigio that was so wonderful, I had to track it down from the winery. A nice touch is that there are several wines featured from the surrounding local vineyards.
Overall, we enjoyed our meal very much. It was romantic and delicious.

“Excellent meal and interaction with sommelier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

My wife and I consider ourselves foodies, and I was concerned by the recent reviews regarding seasoning of the food. We found the food very well seasoned with nice presentation. The highlight of the night was our interaction with the sommelier, April. We love wine and I am partial to French wines. With the large amount of Ontario wines on the list I asked her for guidance. She was great, wanting to pair the wine with our meals and cheese course, she had us taste a few wines she felt we would like, making it fun. We had a glass of excellent Ontario wine which enhanced our dining experience and our night. Of the course the view of the American falls doesn't hurt.

“Amazing Food Amazing Service and Amazing View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Well where do I start...............the apps we ordered were so tasty I knew we were in for a good meal. The goats cheese platter and the beet soup were wonderful on a cold March night, The steak cooked to perfection and the white fish we had the best ever. Staff are very knowledgeable in the wines they offer and made a wonderful selection for us. The meals are very generous and we had no room for dessert .........next time. The view is one of the best in the Falls and again right from the moment we arrived the staff were friendly and looked like they enjoyed their jobs. Fantastic evening can't wait to go back

“The Food is even Better Than the View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Our family of 8, including 2 children 8 & 12 had dinner there last night. The breathtaking view of the falls is one thing but then an evening of excellent food and service began. The wait staff were very attentive to our needs. The food was presented at a timely pace, the plate presentations beautiful and the food delicious. Between all of us we tried the rib eye steak, the whitefish, the chicken and all were cooked to perfection.Our hotel package included a $40 gift voucher so that was most welcome. For a lovely dining experience go there.
