  • "This is by far the best restaurant in the city and matches some of the best in New York City. It doesn't matter what you order, it is guaranteed to come out looking beautiful and tasting delicious!"

  • "My wife and I went to AG last night. What can I say except that if you are in Niagara Falls and want to eat truly inspiring food come here. From the moment you walk down the stairs , you know you are going to have a dining experience. The decor is beautiful, the ambiance is subdued, the staff are wonderful( our server Lindsey was a treat). As for the food well our taste buds were never more happier. If we are back in Niagara anytime soon we will be back. Please try AG you will not be disappointed!!!!!"

  • "The AG restaurant is a real treasure in the sea of commercialized chain restaurants that are inescapable in the Niagara Falls area. The food was fresh, local, and beautifully presented. All of our dishes were unique and creatively put together. We would definitely go back next time we are in the area, and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a memorable dining experience away from the throngs."

  • "Just a short review. I chose AG due to Trip Advisors reviews stating it was the # 1 restaurant in the Falls area. I also picked it specifically for its French inspired menu. The restaurant was very nice, the staff was very attentive but the food was a bit of a let down. By no means was the food bad we did enjoy it. We were just expecting something more. I suppose we had higher expectations as we had been to Paris recently. Our meals in Paris were on a whole different level. I was hoping for a similar experience of French inspired cuisine at AG. That being said I would still recommend the restaurant for its good food and attentive staff"

  • "For over 20 years, we have spent a weekend in the Niagara region. This restaurant by far is the best in Niagara Falls and it can compete with the best in Niagara-on-the -Lake. The signature tenderloin main is great, as was the halibut my wife had. Also, the Niagara only wine list was great. When we travel internationally, we always eat and drink locally produced food, and this restaurant does the same. Although we are from nearby Toronto, we will certainly continue to eat here annually."

  • "The ambience, the service, the food, everything was just wonderful here. The entire staff was friendly and attentive and there was a young singer providing acoustic covers of popular easy listening songs that added to the wonderful scene. We've been talking about that experience for a few nights since and would definitely go back."

  • "As we had read, 'one of the best in the area'--and it was. The ambiance, decor, food and service were superb. Highly recommended."

  • "The service and food were outstanding. I had flowers for my wife delivered to AG in advance and they had them waiting on the table. Knowing it was a special occasion they seated us in corner booth that was more private. Location is off the main area, but we'll worth it."

  • "I dined here in January during the Niagara Icewine Festival and was totally blown away by the ambience, service and quality of food, and especially the restaurant's farm-to-table concept! Naturally, I had high expectations for my second visit this time around and I was not disappointed! AG Sterling has a wide variety of appetizers and entrees to choose from - beef, lamb, duck, even red deer...talk about difficult choices! My friend also really liked how the menu had non-alcoholic beverages as she is not a big wine drinker, making this a great choice for couples, friends and families alike! Although the restaurant is slightly out of the way of the main Niagara falls tourist area, it is well worth the visit!"

  • "A little further away from the Falls, of the beaten path. Wait staff was excellent. Food was farm to table concept. Lamb dish was excellent, my steak was too saucy. Overall food quality was very good."

  • "By this sham of a fine dining place. The place smelled like an airplane food cart. We wisely opted to only order apps and then leave. We would have been wiser to have never entered. Quail over potato salad was burnt and an awful combination. The goat cheese"truffles" were meh at best. We wish we never entered. The Keg was better. Unfit for foodies."

  • "Every part of the meal was spot-on, and the lamb sirloin in particular was exceptional. The maple whiskey is great for after-dinner."

  • "Don't be put off by the stairs leading down, nor by the appearance of the room- the food here is excellent- locally sourced and perfectly prepared, with enough creativity to be interesting- and it all worked. Our server was excellent- knowledgeable and attentive. After many unmemorable meals in Niagara Falls this was a very welcome surprise"

  • "AG is an absolute diamond of a restaurant. The food is amazingly tasty, the service is superb and the ambience is great. And they specialize in using locally grown and raised food. Hard to believe that such a great restaurant is in such a small city. I wish it was in Miami so I could go there regularly."

  • "I have dined in many different high-end restaurant in GTA area, this restaurant doesn't look fancy and decoration is simple, located in basement style old building, the staff are friendly but we were hungry by the time, so we felt the speed of the services were bit slow, otherwise, the food itself was great."

  • "By far the best dining experience when staying at the falls, and not much difference in price either. It was a lovely romantic dinner, the food was fantastic, perfectly portioned and loved that it was local farm to table. Service was great, very knowledgeable and friendly. Great ambience, not noisy and good for convseestion ans enjoyed the live piano. upscale dining but not in a snobby way, and patrons were a mix of dressy and more casual. I would highly recommend to others and definitely will visit again. "

  • "This restaurant is on par with and even better than some restaurants you might find in big cities, such as New York. It is a hidden gem, in Niagara Falls, where most of the restaurant scene is filled with chains and over-priced "fine-dining" experiences. From the truly inspired menu to the friendly and knowledgable staff, AG is tops! If you are in Niagara to celebrate a special occasion, look no further! My wife and I have made a total of five visits to Niagara over the course of the past 12 years and have never had a dining experience like this before. Thank You AG."

  • "Overall, the food was very good (fettuccine with steak was not great), but the rest of the meals/appetizers were very good. Tenderloin was EXCELLENT. Why I will never return or recommend this restaurant was because I had sent in a note indicating that it was my husband's 35th birthday and he had just lost his job the previous week so wasn't his normal self for the last few wks... to my shock absolutely nothing was done, not even a simple 'happy birthday'. Very disappointing for a restaurant that has such fantastic reviews. I manage rather large events for a living, and details like this should not be missed...I apologize for the negative review as it could have been so much better..."

  • "My wife and I went to AG to celebrate her birthday. We were not disappointed. The service was impeccable and the dinner was delicious. Each exquisite dish was presented with an explanation of what we were about to enjoy. And enjoy we did. The restaurant is divided to several semi private dining areas, allowing for a more intimate experience. The only negatives I can relate were the lack of signage directing you downstairs to the restaurant and the guitarist that started playing at 8. He had a wonderful voice but it was too loud. Conversation went out the window once he started playing. All in all, a meal you will. Not long forget"

  • "This is our getaway place when we just need to be alone without children. I wish we could go more often but distance does not allow this luxury. The food is perfect- both in presentation and taste, the service is spot on and you always feel as if you are the only people there. Cannot wait to return for our next romantic break. Truly an evening that is looked forward to."
