AG at The Sterling
Fantastic!AG at the Sterling was fabulous! We were celebrating our anniversary and it was the perfect spot for a romatice evening-great atmosphere. Was a nice departure from the crowds on the main streets. The service was wonderful and the food was incredible. Easily the BEST piece of cheesecake I've ever had!9/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best find in a tourist city.I am so happy I found this place. It is off the main area a little, but worth going. The staff were tentative and provided everything we needed and more. The chef provided a little appetizer, as a compliment, that was fantastic. The cocktails were delicious and not over priced. The food was superb in everyway. My wife and I went to a different restaurant the night before and were disappointed. This place made up for it. We loved the fresh local food and you could tell the chef cared about the food quality. I loved that the waitstaff would detail what you ordered when it was brought to the table. The atmosphere was romantic and quite, which made it a very special night.7/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinnerEverything was awesome. Service was wonderful, and the food was amazing. Not rushed.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good FoodPros: amazing ambience, great service and good food. Changing menu so different every time
Overall: great for special occasions.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMtop notch seasonal, local foodFor background, we live in San Francisco and so have bazillions of upper end eateries and lots that do the farm to table thing. Food-wise the AG is right up there, and everything we had was well-conceived and perfectly cooked. Peas and rhubarb were in season and tasty (peas along with both mains, the rhubarb in a fantastic cheesecake)
From what else i've read about N Falls dining, this seems like the place to go if you want top quality eats.
- The service was nice, but really slow with big gaps.
- Cocktail i had was way too sweet. not a place for cocktails
- Only has 3 wines by the glass, but the one we had was good at least6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Spot In Niagara Falls!If you are looking for a outstanding dining experience, look no further. Really great menu, very interesting and delicious! Only a 5 minute cab ride if you are staying by the falls.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience!Interesting entrees, nice live music in lounge, local farmed food, and the service went out of their way to acccomadate.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a very fancy restaurant.This was a very fancy restaurant. The service, food, and atmosphere were all outstanding. I would highly recommend. It's pricey but not as bad as we thought it would be. We were a little underdressed for such a nice place, I recommend dressy attire. very good experience.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAGService was superb and food was just amazing.
highly recommended for a romantic evening.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Service and FoodGreat service, great food, kind of hard to find but well worth it... definitely recommended for anyone that is looking for amazing food while on the road. The waiter even gave us directions and a card for complimentary wine tasting at the winery where they got their wines from when we inquired. Amazing experience.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!!I live in New York City, and this was one of the finest dinners I have had in years! We were 4 diners & each had different appi's & different mains. We ALL loved the food & the local wine (recommended by our server) was terrific. I am not easily impressed, but
I truly wish I lived closer as I would definitely go back.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting combinations, Tasty!The list on the menu was short but the combination of ingredients were interesting and tasty6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTop rated Restaurant for a ReasonAmazing menu, everything above and beyond expectations, which were high to start with as the restaurant has a great reputation. In a bit of an odd place, in the basement of a milk-bottle shaped hotel, and on the pricey side of course, but well worth it. We had five people, including on child, and everything we ordered was top-notch. Service was also incredible and very accommodating even to a young child's picky tastes. Would highly recommend to anyone.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent meal!!!We decided upon AG after sorting through online reviews.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent attention to detailWe recently ate at the AG Cuisine again and had another memorable experience. The attention to detail in the menu and the presentation and flavors was as we remembered from previous visits..5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMUnderground TreasureRomantic, modern, bold decor. Loved the oysters. Soup created in 3 different presentations. Seafood dish could have had more larger portions of scallops, but good taste. Pasta & beef, very good. Service was slow at first, but once started, no problem after that. Crème brûlée & rhubarb cheesecake, excellent.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely dining!Our best meal during a three night stay in Niagara. Perfectly timed service and great food.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousIncredibly surprising! There is excellent dining in Niagara Falls, ON, after all. It is apparent that the chef and the entire staff take great pride in their craft.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA night to rememberWe were treated like royalty during our recent dining experience at AG. The service was impeccable, knowledge of menu and wine pairings were incredible. We had the most delicious meals...in fact we loved it so much we went back the next night!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, which is reallyDelicious food, which is really well presented....this is fine dining at its best! The signature dish (beef wellington) is worth the price. These are NYC prices but the service and food are top notch quality.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA welcome change to chainsNiagara Falls is full of chain eateries. AG was an oasis of delicious, local, seasonal food. When we arrived the hostess asked what time our reservation was, before asking how many. Later in our meal another couple had trouble getting a table without reservations, so reservations are a must. We ordered a ramp tartlet to share as an appetizer. It was delicious and so creamy. I ordered the roasted venison loin for my meal. The venison was tender and perfectly cooked. The sweet potato was the perfect complement, just the right level of sweetness paired with the espresso flavors. My husband had the beef tenderloin - AG's signature dish, we were told. He said it was the best steak he'd had in a very long time. I would return to AG in a second.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent presentation andExcellent presentation and knowledgable staff. Service fast but not rushed. Fresh incredients5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was excellent.Everything was excellent. Perhaps a bit overpriced but it is Niagara Falls.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for dinner,not for late nightServers were friendly and knowledgable, food outstanding. Had the oysters to start...super fresh. Beef tenderloin was delicious. Creme brûlée was unique and wonderful. Lots of delicious local wines and they're happy to make recommendations.
Came 2nd night (Sun) for late night drinks and snacks. Signature Caesar was perfect. Sadly, though, there wasn't really a late night food menu...just the regular appetizers. Would be nice to have a few late night munchie options.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA Foodies Paradise!The food at AG is top notch. Beef filet with almond brie crust, etc. served on cranberry, fois gras jus. Floating Island, with poached, not baked, meringue, filled with chestnut mousse, served on icewine-poached pear puree. Even better than it sounds. Along with the regular seasonal menu, they have a 3-course, seasonal prix fixe menu with optional wine parings.
The only thing I didn't love about AG was the RED in the the decor. Once inside the hotel, the restaurant is not well signed. It's actually down in the basement. Most of the fixtures and finishes are lovely, but they have red curtains, red faux paint that make you feel like your in a night club, not a fine dining establishment. Don't let that stop you from going though!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly recomendedFantastic Food
Atmosphere suitable for a special occasion or a more upscale night out
Dined on a Thursday night so I am sure less active than a weekend5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find in Niagara Falls!As we were going to the basement of what appeared to be a renovated Ramada, my husband asks “this place got good reviews, right?”. I can’t fault him for asking, because the entrance to the restaurant is a little less than grand, but once you find your way down, it was nicely decorated. And indeed, this place earns all the good reviews they get! Kudos to the chef for his use of local, seasonal ingredients. He really has the right como of quality ingredients, technique, and a love for what he is doing. It shows in the meal’s superb flavors & thoughtful presentation. One of the best meals we have had lately! Menu is small, but carefully thought out, and the ingredients are married quite well on the plate to produce wonderful overall flavors.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentCame here during an overnight stay at Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Was not feeling particularly hungry after feasting at other restaurants throughout the day, but AG had food that was prepared so impeccably, we had no problems cleaning off our plates. The venison tartar that arrived compliments of the chef was a pleasant surprise and gave a good clue as to how much pride the chefs take in their food.
Service was pleasant and the atmosphere created by the live music really enhanced the entire dining experience. Price is incredibly reasonable considering the portion sizes and quality. Would absolutely recommend to any friends visiting the area.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Local FoodWe were very impressed with the AG. Service great! Loved the taste and presentation of the food. We also felt good about supporting local farms as most of the items on their menu were from Ontario!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAG = Amazing good & Great atmospherThe food, I honestly can't think of what to say! It's so flavourful with every bite! I had the duck and it was so tender an juicy. My boyfriend had the tenderloin and it was cooked to perfection. Everything was amazing and our server was very knowledgable paired our wine to our dinner suggested the bone marrow (meat butter it's so smooth and delish!) the atmosphere was very nice dim lighting and a nice soothing piano in the back ground . I would recommend AG to anyone looking for a full flavour dining experience who's staff is very knowldgable of their menus and will go above and beyond to meet your needs! My hat off to the chef!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGem of the FallsAG was suggested to us by Niagara Vintage Wine Tours. We love local, thoughtfully prepared food a'la Alice Waters, and AG hit the mark on everything. We chose the special Farm to Fork meal with wine pairings, and every bite was a symphony of flavor. Our last vacation was to France, and the food at the AG still surpassed our wildest dreams. Make a point to find this restaurant, tucked into the Sterling Inn and Spa. Memorable cuisine.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good show all around !!Very good all around !! Food taste and presentation was superb and the service was excellent - definitely going back for another special occassion5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable eveningAG provides excellent food in an unassuming and unobtrusive manner. The wine list leaves something to be desired however.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe kitchen staff and theThe kitchen staff and the wait staff were wonderful. They all worked together for a delicious and professional presentation. Highly recommended!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
