We started off with the cheese tray appetizer which was wonderful - great selection of cheeses with nuts, lingonberries, and delicious crisp toasts. We shared the appetizer and the amount of food was so generous that not only did we each get our fill but we took the remainder home. Our main entrees were the leg of duck confit and rack of lamb. The duck leg was overcooked and dry, very obviously burnt/charred on the outside. It was served with pine nut rice which was mushy - the accompanying vegetables were mostly zucchini. The rack of lamb was good - properly cooked but unfortunately, the sauce was boring and virtually flavourless. It was served with oka polenta which was beautifully cooked but bland (served with a flavourful sauce, it would be great). The accompanying vegetables were excellent - purple mini-carrots, beautiful baby green beans, cauliflower and spinach. Service was excellent and of course the view was outstanding! We were disappointed as we've been there a few times before and have always had outstanding, delicious meals.

We live in the Niagara region and this was our second time at Windows. We absolutle love visiting Windows not only for the view but the service and food is amazing! We did the prix fix 2 course dinner which is great value for 3 courses of food in that caliber of fine dining. Michael was attentive and kind. Chef Jay came out to ask us how were were enjoying our meal which was a really nice, personalized gesture. We cant to have another reason to go back and celebrate at Windows!

We booked a table by the widow with a great view of the falls, you can spend a long time watching these from any vantage point with getting bored and this one is no exception, the food was really very good, the staff knowledgable and some very good wines on offer too, celebrated our 50th birthdays here that night and wasn't disappointed.

This restaurant oversees the Niagara Falls and provide a unique experience at night. The food partly sourced from local farmers and suppliers, paired well with Niagara wines makes for a great overall experience.

My spouse is rapidly approaching the big 4-oh, and we had a chance for a getaway, and this is one of the places we got to done at... OUTSTANDING.

Our server, Julie, introduced herself and was congenial, lively, and interacted with us all night. She took the time to provide recommendations, not only her own, but other staff members as well, when it came to selecting dinner wine from the impressive drinks menu.

Julie was quite happy to provide background on the dishes being served, and cater to our tastes. We started off with in-house complimentary freshly baked multi-grain bread, with house-made maple butter. Appetizers were PEI Mussels and an Artisan Cheese Board. Main course was Beef Tenderloin, and egg noodle Spaghetti Carbonara. Dessert was Pear Crème Brûlée and Coriander & Clove Carrot Cake.

Not a morsel was left standing. It was flavourful, delicious, savoury bite after bite after bite after bite. Perfectly portioned so as to get just enough of a delicious creation, but not too much so as to be too full to enjoy the next offering from the kitchen. Well done, Windows!!
