My wife and I are foodies and always enjoy finding hidden gems for a great meal. This was one of those places. Niagra Falls on the Canadian side is really a tacky glitzy kind of place we usually avoid. But this place was worth finding. We were greeted enthusiastically when entering and given a bottle of sparkling water. The atmosphere reminded me of some places in Germany, a basement type setting, dark but very casual and nice. Started out with appies. My wife had a compressed watermelon salad she raved about. I had a tuna dish with a mix of citrus and a wasabi/creme fraiche mix that was superb. My wife then had a salmon with a wonderful sauce. I had a steak, which was a little tough, but not enough to complain about. Save room for desert. They are outstanding. First time in a long time I wanted to lick the plate. The meal was accompanied with their own made wines, which were very nice. The service was excellent. You were really made to feel special throughout the entire meal. This is a real gem among all the tackiness of the rest of Niagra Falls.

We just walked by me popped in. It's a bit dark, but the food is awesome and the staff is even better. Definitely get dessert!

My companion checked out another web portal and this place popped up. A few blocks way from the wax museum, haunted house, burger joints, etc, but well worth the 2 block walk. The owner Chris greeted us at the door and chatted up his decor, jewel tones and city centric location. He explained that they have some very good home-made wines on tap. We tried a few and just enjoyed the inviting ambiance. We didn't order any food, but our next trip this will be stop number 1. It's always nice to go to an establishment in an unknown area and feel like you've made a new friend! Try this place out and ask for Chris! You might just have a very enjoyable experience. We did!

Thank you for the comments... our goal is to be that little hidden spot in Niagara. Just off the beaten track but worth the short walk. Can't wait for you to try the food now!!

As locals we don't usually venture into the tourist area to eat, but we have heard good things about this restaurant, so decided to try it. Had a great experience, the service was excellent it was fun to try the wines first and then decide on which to have with dinner. The smoked salmon bisque and mussels were both delicious.
The atmosphere was comfortable and yet upscale. It would be a nice spot for winter time, especially in front of the fire in the big cozy armchairs!

We planned on going here even before our trip and the day before we stopped by and talked with an owner about the restaurant. Very nice person... even had good things to say about another restaurant. So we went the next day for dinner. One of the best meal/dinner experiences we have ever had. Excellent wine, service, and meal. The fried goat cheese was spectacular as was the special which was filet with some type of coffee related seasonings. The decor and atmosphere was really awesome also. We left telling each other that this was the best meal we have ever had. Well worth the money.
