“Disappointed by the Kitchen”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

I was very excited to have friends in town from TO to try the Syndicate. I frequently visit Taps and know the quality of the beer. We were seated quickly, a party of 5. We didn't wait long for service. Our waitress was attentive. Order placed at 8:05. Two price fixe meals, two mussels and a hamburger. We waited and waited. The waitress warned us the kitchen was running 'slow'. But meals didn't come until 915. The mashed potatoes in the price fixe meal were cold. We did inform the waitress and she offered to replace them but we didn't want to wait any longer. By the time we finished it was 1015 after dessert finally came. This was a little much for a 730 reservation. I hope that whomever runs the kitchen gets their affairs in order because this was a major disappointment and really ruined our plans for that we had for the night. Parking was pretty atrocious. Food was delicious overall by the way but it was taken away from by this experience. I'm obviously a local and I'd think twice before recommending this restaurant to friends.

“It Just Keeps Getting Better...”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Seriously, you have to try this place. The price fixe menu provides value, the fresh ingredients and house brews provide taste, and the staff and manager provide a great, comfortable eating experience. I'm not going to lie, this is my second review of the Syndicate, but I can't stress how much it doesn't disappoint. I had the pasta bar special and the rest of our party had the roasted chicken. No complaints from anyone, just good conversation with great food in a quaint restaurant. Make a reservation and check it out, you won't be disappointed. Thanks Syndicate!

“Farm to Table to Internet Review”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Wonderful culinary experience. Pre Fixe menu was very nice. Recommend the cheese plate for dessert but, it could've easily been the appetizer with one of their craft beers. The ambience was lackluster; it seemed to be missing a tad bit of inspiration. There was a handyman of sorts doing something with a jigsaw during our dinner -- that sucked! Sara did a wonderful job of taking care of us though. Portions exceeded the price and taste exceeded expectations so value for dollar is very high! Management should think about public wifi access for travelers getting fleeced by cell carriers just for crossing the border.

“Farm to table need we say more?”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Make a reservation and go. We were so upset we found this place on our last night in Niagara. We didn't try the beer but the food was excellent. I had the NY Strip that was on the menu that night it was cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. Truly one of the best steaks I've ever had (and i used to live in Texas.) Like the title says..farm to table the freshness can't be beat. Especially with all the food chains in town with frozen or bagged ingredients. Such an excellent find.
