“Expensive for What You Get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We received 2 vouchers for $40 at dinner and free breakfast as part of a Groupon deal for the Marriott so of course we wanted to use them. We were pretty underwhelmed in general with the food but thought the staff was very considerate. They were attentive and friendly on both of our visits. The breakfast buffet was quite nice, providing lots of options for all tastes. Dinner was overpriced for what you got. I ordered the Caesar salad and it was good but nothing special. My boyfriend ordered steak that was tough - we've had much better for half the price. Our second night we decided (having spent so much even with the voucher on night one) to order apps and dessert only. We enjoyed the fried calamari, but thought the quail left a lot to be desired. We completely agreed however that the cheesecake with honey pecans and caramel was by far the best thing we had the whole stay! Highly recommend that. Also we didn't feel the view was that spectacular with all the trees. The restaurant should be up several floors!

“Pleasantly Surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

I was expecting "hotel" food...overpriced and not that great...but I was happily surprised. The prime rib, steak and lobster were all great. The salad was fresh and the home made dressing was very nice. They did something nice with the butter for the lobster which stayed warm with a mini chaffing dish. Server was quite lovely and positive...albeit mildly slow at moments. Overall a very nice meal, lovely atmosphere and gorgeous views provided a romantic evening.

“View and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

After a day of Falls viewing and walking around the NY State Park, we were ready for a culinary experience. And we were not disappointed. The blackened Ontario trout was perfect. The pasta dishes were hearty. An excellent place , especially if you are tired and staying at the Falls View!

“Prime rib lovers place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

The end cut of prime rib was the best I've had in a long time. The juice from the beef was slightly seasoned but delicious. The baked potato and asparagus were both excellent.
