We went to Niagara Falls over a weekend in November and made reservations to check out AG. Overall, it was a great experience. I would probably give it a 4 ½ star.
Here is me breakdown of our experience at AG
The Restaurant is located in the basement of the Sterling in an Spa which is one downfall as there is no windows or view. However, the restaurant is decorated nicely. It kind of reminded me of a 60’s Bond film. When we showed up at 7pm the place was fairly empty but filled up by the time we left. They have a Jazz style band that plays starting at 8 on Friday and Saturdays which was a nice touch to the evening, and they weren’t too loud or overpowering. One thing I will mention is in the washroom, while they are nice, the automatic soup dispenser placement wasn’t thought out. In the Men’s washroom you had to reach in front of it to get to the paper towels, which leaves your shirt arm covered in soup!
We started by ordering some sparkling water and I got a class of the Trius Brut which was nice for a cheaper sparkling wine, my partner ordered a Mill Street Tankhouse which we are familiar with. Shortly after we were served the free Amuse-Bouche. This was a warm broccoli soup served in a shot class topped with aged white cheddar. This was really tasty.
We ordered an appetizer to share which was the Bourbon and Bacon Steamed P.E.I. Mussels. They brought it separated into two servings which was a nice touch so we didn’t have to reach across. The mussels were cooked perfectly. The sauce you could tasty slight bourbon with a sweet after taste. It had a slaw type of topping as well. Very fresh and a new twist to mussels we have not had before.
As our mains I ordered the Prosciutto wrapped Halibut. This was very good. The halibut was a nice size, which was flaky and fresh. It came with a side of Potato Bread Pudding with hints of herbs and some vegetables which was also quite tasty. My partner ordered the Roasted Lakeland Farm Venison Loin. He said the venison was cooked perfectly, which looked medium rare. They didn’t ask how he would like it, it seemed to just come like that, but it was the way you would want it anyways. This came with a sweet potato pie topped with a marshmallow crème which was one of his favorite things.
For Dessert we ordered to share the New York Style Pumpkin Cheesecake, topped with butterscotch poached apple ice cream. This was a good size to share and was worth the calories!
The total cost for two wines, a beer, a bottle of sparkling water, two coffees, a shot of Grand Marnier, a shared appetizer, two mains and a shared dessert came to about $185 with tax and tip.
The service was excellent. Exactly what I would expect at a restaurant like this. We had 4 or 5 people attending out table throughout the night. From the host who sat us and took our coats, the server and then those delivering the food that would explain what was in each.
Overall, a good night. I would recommend going there if in Niagara.
