Diner Reviews
  • "Went for dinner on the weekend with my hubby and 2 friends and we were not disappointed. It's pricy but worth every penny. Food presentation was very good, taste was very good and the service was excellent. The only thing was there was no sign of the restaurant as you enter the Sterling Inn. Is it just me or anybody out there wonder why most fine dining restaurants lighting are always on dimmed side or too dark?"

  • "I was in a group of four and we all ordered something different. Every detail for each dinner was perfection-flavor, presentation, and service. If you are in the area make a reservation at the AG. It's worth every penny."

  • "This is the best fine dinning restaurant in the Niagara Falls area. The service is great, the live music adds a plus. All the food is from local sources and exquisite, great for special occasions."

  • "We were so lucky to dine at AG while on vacation to Niagara Falls. At the start of our trip, we had been extremely disappointed with the food options in the area. Since it is a high tourist area, there tends to be all chain establishments. My husband and I like to dine at local restaurants, and consider ourselves to be foodies. We were so thrilled with our experience at AG! It was the dining highlight of the trip. Our server was extremely professional and knowledgeable, the food and drink selection was tremendous, and they even had some live music that was great. I would strongly suggest this for intimate dining experience!"

  • "Wow! We were so impressed with AG. Coming from Toronto, we knew about some of the Niagara area "fit for foodies" restaurants recommended through Toronto life, like Treadwells, but I don't know why there is not more hype around AG. Everything is cooked fresh, presentation is mag worthy, and the service staff are incredibly knowledgable and informed of the dishes. Just a read of the menu will tell you a hint of how good the food is. All this tucked away in Niagara Falls, near Clifton hill. Who would have thought! We thought that taking our son to Niagara Falls would mean a dinner at the keg. Next time we will leave our son at home and book a night at the sterling hotel and fine at the AG."

  • "This was a perfect choice for a romantic dinner on a getaway weekend. Our table was next to the bar bu secluded from it by a partition which was a wine rack so the activity at the bar was not a distraction. The lighting was subdued, but not to the point where i had to use the candle on the table to see the menu or our food. John was very helpful when it came to choosing the wine, all were Canadian, and our final choice went well with dinner. The beef tenderloin looked exactly like its picture on the web and tasted as good as it looked. Next time I am at the falls, it's my choice!"

  • "My wife and I had the pleasure of dining at AG for the first time recently. It was a pleasant surprise. Not only do they use fresh local seasonal product they do it at a level which rivals anything we have seen on the Food Network. My wife and I have dined in many high end eatery's in and outside North America and this is a hidden gem. Another fabulous reason to go there is the price. Now it is more expensive that pub food which has its place but when you consider the quality of the food, presentation and service it is exceptional. My wife and I dined food, drinks and all for $150.00 cdn which is a reasonable price for this kind of Haute Cuisine. AG blew away the Hilton's "Watermark" hands down. Scott C. Smith - Dundas, ON"

  • "This was a terrific find for a romantic meal. The cocktails were interesting, featuring local wines and "Canadian" themes. The service was excellent. John was an impeccable host at the bar, and Kelly made some very good recommendations from the menu. The flavours in each course of our meal were well-balanced, and the wine pairings were delicious. The atmosphere was intimate. Overall a very enjoyable experience!"

  • "My husband and I came to Niagara Falls for a "night out" and wasn't sure exactly where to dine. I chose AG based on internet reviews from real diners and I wasn't disappointed. EVERYTHING about this place was impressive. First impression was the ambiance. We really liked the decor and the size of the place. Secondly was the wait staff, everyone was friendly and knowledgable. Thirdly the menue was so varied, there is something for everyone. We each had an appetizer, entree and dessert and shared between the two of use because we felt our dish was amazing. My husband kept mentioning all through dinner this was the best restaurant he's gone to in a while, we will be back for sure! Nice job AG."

  • "We were thrilled from the moment we sat down. Our group dined in the chef's table which is an intimate private enclosed glass room. The food was amazing - the chef uses local ingredients whenever possible - flavors are exquisite and the presentation is a beautiful sight. Our servers repeated the description of each dish as they presented them - a nice touch because it reminds you of the unique features of each course. Our dessert sampler & cheese plate for the table was composed on a large platter for a magnificent presentation. AG rivals any of the fine dining restaurants we've been to in all the major cities, as well as our home town (Buffalo). I encourage OpenTable readers to venture over the bridge to Canada; totally fit for foodies!"

  • "Located in the lower level of the sterling through an unimpressive building entrance, we were apprehensive. However as you descended the stairs, you were immediately greeted by a wonderful ambiance and staff. It was a pleasure to dine in a quiet atmosphere rather then in the noisy places so many are now sporting. The waiter was professional and friendly, the food was outstanding. If we are back in this area we will definitely dine there again."

  • "After looking on trip advisor in the UK for a suitable restaurant to book on valentines eve. The AG was rated the number one restaurant in Niagara - even though there were no fancy views of the falls, we decided to book it. We were not to be disappointed ! The service was top notch with an excellent bartender Nancy, & a very efficient & lovely waitress Cala. Our food was amazing - our only complaint was we couldn't manage dessert!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We were not impressed with this restaurant. I was very excited to try it out since it was listed as #2 best restaurant in the Falls, but we all got very disappointed from the very slow service. We had made reservations 2 days in advance, and were still left waiting for 35 min. The service should be more enthusiastic and not too boring. The food was good, but not outstanding. I don't think i would go back to it."

  • "The menu presented out of the ordinary, creative takes on great food choices. The Arctic char was tasty, & the portion size was perfect. The beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection, mouth watering. Server Lindsay was pleasant, helpful, & a delight to talk to. The wine was superb locally-sourced & paired well with our food choices. Atmosphere was charming, well-decorated & welcoming. A bonus was the live entertainment after dinner, which was very nice. It's quite the hidden gem!"

  • "We ate at AG during a romantic weekend away. The bartender Nancy was exceptional, knowledgeable and prompt. AG is proud of farm to table, and had great selections, although their online menu was not up to date, and I was disappointed not to get the fabulous duck listed there. We started with the Winter Salad and Elk pasta, and they were both amazing. For mains my husband had the lamb shank, and I had the highly recommended Beef Wellington. The Signature Beef Wellington was good... but not as good as I expected with the high recommendations. The pumpkin cheesecake was great, the bread pudding was okay . We would definitely go back, as the service, selection and ambiance were wonderful. solid 9.5/10."

  • "Unique, high quality, artistic. This is the best spot for a nice dinner in the Falls. Blows Ruth's Chris away with it's fresh, local ingredients and ever changing menu. Every dish is well planned. An explosion of flavor in your mouth. The beef Wellington was encrusted in Brie and almonds and sat atop wilted greens and a potato pancake in a pool of cranberry heaven sauce. The chicken saltimboca was amazingly tender, wrapped in prosciutto, and topped with fried sage. It was served with the best risotto I've ever had, sweet organic carrots and brussel sprouts, with a smear of lemon cream and capers and a few sweet cinnamon apple cubes. Wow. This place is a must. Live music at 8."

  • "Wonderful food from appetizer to dessert. The Beef tenderloin was recommended by the waiter, and it really is stellar. Food presentation was excellent, very inspired cuisine all around. Minor service issues (not receiving wine until after entrée was finished, forgetting requests - spoon for consommé) didn't detract from otherwise great meal."

  • "Great food and service. Great music and beautiful decor. All the best local wines. Definitely would come back and try more of the menu. I had made reservations for Valentines day and asked for them to supply a dozen roses at my table. They chose a great bouquet and gave me a booth. Overall a fantastic dinning experience."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Great crab cakes, bread pudding and cheesecake. As for our entrees, the Arctic Char was tough for a fish dish; the whitefish tasted oily and fishy, which I think usually indicates that it is not fresh enough. When we made our observations known to the server, she passed our comments to the management, who deducted the entrees from our bill. We would go again, and perhaps try their signature "Beef Wellington.""
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "About a 10 minute walk from the falls, a little difficult to find without a GPS! Beautiful inside, live music was great and the server was amazing. All of the wait staff knew the menu inside out and were very helpful. The food was good, but I've had better. My favourite part was the dessert!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This is definitely a place I would recommend for a romantic evening out. I can't pin point the type of restaurant this place falls under but it was a great experience. The chef did a wonderful job on the presentation of each course. I find that sometimes where presentation excels, taste falters but I was quite pleased with everything I ordered. I can not remember the names of the food verbatim but I know my plate consisted of lobster and fish and my fiance chose the chicken wrapped in prosciutto. Both entrees were great. The portions aren't the biggest but between the appetizer, entree and dessert...I was satisfied. The price can run pretty high but if you want something different, I would recommend for a special occasion."

  • "This place was amazing. From the moment you enter, you realize the level of service you're going to receive. When my girlfriend and I went in, an amiable hostess/waitress greeted us and offered to take our coats. They were a little short on serve staff since it was the off season, but we waited just a moment to be seated. The food was exquisite, as was my girlfriend's ice wine martini (I've now been instructed to make it sometime for her), the presentation was exceptional and every inch of the experience was well thought out. The restaurant was very quiet due to a lack of patrons, but I was left with the distinct impression that even if the restaurant filled up a little more, it would still maintain a quiet and elegant ambiance."
