“Four stars because of the service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

The food is Meh - but we received such world class service I had to give it 4 stars. Tiara needs a real focus and talent in the kitchen - the room and outdoor space are so beautiful but the menu is old school and the actual food choices are terrible. Example: we ordered the cheese plate on the patio and it had one tired grocery store brie, one unidentified white cheese and one scary 70s style deep orange cheddar chunk that frightened us too much to actually eat. if you are one of the best hotels in the region, your kitchen should reflect that - just sayin'

“A good dinner with Rose”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

We had a very good experience with choosing appetizers and dessert from a pricey menu with outstanding service from Rose. We were served quickly and well so that we would have plenty of time to get to the theater. Excellent food!

“Excellent Service, Great Atmosphere, and Very Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

We were two couples, looking to enjoy a special meal in a nicer setting. Tiara fit the bill, for us. There was patio seating, as well as indoor seating behind large glass windows overlooking a marina on the Niagara River. There was live jazz music playing during our entire meal.

The menu is very creative with many interesting choices. The food was well prepared and brought to us very promptly. We enjoyed beef tenderloin and with vegetables and fries, as well as Whitefish served on a bed of cous-cous. The food was tasty and satisfying.

What particularly impressed us was the friendly, fast service from our server, Rose. She
decorated our table with flower petals when she heard that one of us was celebrating a birthday. We'll definitely dine here again.

“Outstanding Food, Ambiance, and Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

My wife and I had an outstanding dinner experience at the Tiara. The food and ambiance were both excellent, but what made the experience truly outstanding was our server Rose. She was friendly, knowledgeable, warm, and very attentive. We will definitely go back there on our next visit to Niagara-on-the-lake.

“Very good but not excellent which it should be at that price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

We were seated promptly and asked if we were staying at the hotel or were on a package. Listening to the answers to that question from other diners being seated it was clear that we were almost the only ones paying menu prices for our meal. Everyone else had some sort of discount. It was needed! A first and a main with a shared dessert, one 5 oz. glass of wine and one 9 oz. glass of wine (both local Canadian) came to $200 with tax and tip. Food and service were very good but not outstanding. Perhaps the best part of the meal was the lamb sausage which accompanied the very nice sliced lamb.
