  • "Gourmet food, great service romantic booths, all good. Loved it!"

  • "By far the nicest place I have been too. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful and romantic night. They even take pictures for you at the table. Wine list was impressive as well and the drinks were great."

  • "We were very pleased with everything UNTIL we asked for more bread 3, yes 3 times! There was no excuse in a restaurant of this caliber. When we finally got more bread, there was no apology for the delay, which would have gone a long way in wording this review."

  • "Highly recommend by a friend, restaurant down stairs in Spa/hotel. Nice ambiance, very welcomed by the very attentive staff. Menu was seasonal using local produce. We were guided through it expertly by Lindsey. The food was outstanding and it is obvious that the chef and sous chef take an immense pride in what they do. Each course was presented very well and explained as it was presented. Wine list was local to Niagara and bottle of unfiltered Cabernet we had was exceptional. I will say that we had August 13 one of the most delicious and memorable meals in our whole 36 years of marriage. Definitely on my recommend list for people who maybe visiting the area."

  • "Very refined establishment, kind of surprising in a tourist town like Niagara Falls. Dinner was excellent and service very professional without being obtrusive. Very fresh ingredients, elegant presentation. Skimpy drinks, but I guess that's due to Canadian law. Pity, because everything else was first class."

  • "Super nice place for special occasion or romantic dinner. Food is great, tastes good, presentation is interesting. I'm usually not the biggest fan of live music, but girl playing guitar there was just awesome and really fit in overall atmosphere. We were there with kids (the only people with kids:)) and felt very comfortable, but this is not the place where you want to go with kids and its not because somebody was unhappy that we brought children, just atmosphere there is so romantic, you want to save this visit for something special."

  • "Spent the day going to local wineries an end the day at AG. Food was outstanding the scallops were possible the best scallops I have ever ate. We left just in time to catch the fireworks at the falls. But probably could have stayed for a few more hours enjoying the wine and delissio us food. The only negative thing I can say is that it's located in niagara and I live in oakville."

  • "This is our number one favorite restaurant, not just in the Niagara region but in general! Unique cuisine from a master chief. Every detail has been carefully chosen, experienced wait staff are a delight. Atmosphere is modern, romantic but still very friendly."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "My wife and I checked into the Sterling Hotel and based on the quirkiness of the place we were worried that maybe AG wouldn't be as good as reviews had indicated. Our worries were for nothing. The food, service and atmosphere were all terrific. We will definitely be back next time we're in Niagara Falls."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Our dining experience was exceptional. The food was outstanding as was the service. We would strongly recommend AG to others. The scallop appetizer was delicious. The signature beef tenderloin was wonderful - cooked perfectly and quite unique with its almond Brie topping. For dessert, we felt like some fresh fruit and ice cream and the chef put together a beautiful dish that was light and included a variety of fruit from the region. Look forward to returning."

  • "Aside from the majesty of the falls and neighboring parks, the rest of Niagara Falls is rather honky tonk. Run, don't walk to this restaurant for delicious, beautifully presented food with friendly, helpful servers. A find among the overpriced, underwhelming crowded streets."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Difficult to find. Atmosphere is nice, very quite and private. Very pretentious and ambitious presentation of their philosophy, and bellow average food. Complete lack of flavors and texture. Presentation is somewhat nice though. Very limited choice of wines. Would never go back"

  • "Great food and great service. I'm so happy we ate here, even if it was an expensive evening. The food was delicious"

  • "After doing our research and reading all of the reviews we were ready for a great dining experience. However, AG easily beat all expectations. Food and service were spectacular. Our concern with its' basement venue faded with the first bite and seeing its' lovely decor. Expensive but worth every penny, but a great value for the money. We will book again on our next visit and certainly recommend to our friends."

  • "Wonderful menu selection. Priced surprisingly well for the ambiance, quality and food presentation. Kudos to the chef's. Great place for anniversary or a special date night. Wait staff were pleasant, courteous and knowlegable of the menu and wine list. This was our fist visit and we will be sure to return again very soon."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Food excellent. Location is a little obscure, down in a basement. That is ok but could be better marked inside hotel building. I recommend."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "It was difficult to choose just two entrees from the menu of this restaurant. We finally decided on red deer and lamb. Both were tender and very flavorful. The accompanying vegetables were well prepared with just enough sauce. The portions were perfectly sized to allow dessert and coffee with out feeling too full. We split a pavlova which was light and delicious. We chose a local wine for the Strewn vineyard just north near Niagara on the Lake. The Cab/Merlot blend was perfect with the deer and lamb. Our server informed us that all the wines served at AG were local. I look forward to returning to this restaurant. Very romantic and quiet. Ask for a table in the corner that is partially draped for a bit or privacy."

  • "Darrin was great as was the rest of the staff. Field to Fork took all the pressure of choosing off of us and allowed the chef to shine! Excellent job!"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Each aspect fo the meal, appetizers, main and desert, we both had one of each, was simply delicious. Service was great as was the presentation. I have already told a number of friends about this amazing find. Menu had a number of fabulous selections, and it was hard to choose, but don't think you could go wrong. Very reasonably priced for the level of service and quality of fare."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Once again the beef tenderloin out does itself. If you are a meat eater this is the dish for you. It's the house specialty, potatoe rotti, spinach topped with the best piece of beef tenderloin covered with cheese, nuts, and a fabulous rhubarb sauce."

  • "Me and my wife stayed at the Sterling hotel and we took the escape package that came with a 3 course meal at AG. We checked the reviews of the restaurant the day before our reservation and it was rated the #1 restaurant in Niagara on TripAdvisor. Well there is a reason for that, out is a great restaurant! It is a nice and classy place and it was very quite and romantic. The staff were very friendly and polite. The food was extremely good and we both liked that local ingredients were used and the combination of flavors used by the chef for the dishes. I usually have something to complain about but I couldn't really find something to complain about for AG."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food, service and romantic ambiance was awesome. The server was very knowledgeable about the local ingredients and was very good. Our overall experience was awesome. The slightly negative comment is that it almost felt too quiet."
