Alergies anyone? !

Anne is the lovely owner of this simple and yummy restaurant. She went at great lengths to offer us selections from her food bar that would accommodate our food allergies. She politely recited the ingredients in all of her ready prepared salads and quiches. She offered to create a personal salad to... read more

We've eaten at the Epicurean maybe 5 times. It's our favorite restaurant in town. Exceptionally good food, fair pricing, very fast and friendly service. Highly recommend for dinner.

If you're in a hurry you might like this place, but it is a glorified cafeteria. We were forced to have lunch here during a disappointing winery tour. Your lunch is reheated in a microwave and not very well. The quiche was watery & bland. A glass of pinot grigio will set you back 9.00 with the added bonus of... More

Was allowed to sip tea and wait for dinner service for 1 hour before the Candlelight Stroll in town. Then moved to a dinner table. This was the BEST STEAK and the BEST FRIES I have ever had! My friend ordered the pierogi burger (first night of their burger menu). She raved about it, especially the potato slices, as well.... More

I went here for lunch with a friend. He had a sandwich, I had a sea food chowder and quiche. The soup was on the thin side, the quiche was all right but nothing special. At lunch time meals are available cafeteria style, which certainly speeds things up. OK for a quick lunch.

Epicurean is a slightly unusual spot. By day it's a fairly decent cafe, with sandwiches, soup, pastries and so on to capture the passing trade. In the evenings, however, it transforms into a fairly ambitious restaurant. The evening ambiance is not the greatest, with the big lunch display counter running the length of the restaurant, but the staff are welcoming... More

Our first night in town for the Shaw Festival and we enjoyed excellent dishes. Being unfamiliar with some of the wines of this region, we enjoyed our waiter's guidance toward the Cabernet Francs and Syrahs, as well as his thoughts on the experiences to expect in some of the winery tasting rooms.

Lovely place to have coffee and lunch. We did find the prices a bit on the high side for soup and a bun but the food was delicious.

We found most spots full or expensive in downtown Niagara On The Lake at lunch so thought we would give Epicurean a go after looking at their posted menu. My husband and I split one sandwich and one soup and the bill was $20.00. Thought that was a little excessive considering food is served cafeteria style and interior is dark... More
