Great view. Mixed food. High prices
The appetizers and lamb chops were great. The surf and turf special was overcooked and dry.
You can't beat the view, especially if you straddle the daylight and stay long enough for the Falls lights to come on. The ambiance is lessened by the cramped quarters, especially if you sit next to a diner to keeps bumping into you to try to take pictures and talks loudly on his cell phone.
Overall, it's a good experience to do once if you can afford it, but the prices are very high for what you get. If you are daunted by the prices, there are great views at less expensive venues.

Awesome View and Experience!
I took family visiting the Buffalo area from out of town to the Skylon for lunch. The overall experience was very memorable. The food was good, the view was awesome and the service was very good. It is a great place to impress and enjoy! I definitely recommend for special occaisions and to take visitors. Only drawback was the washroom/restroom is on a different floor accessible via stairs, so could be limiting for anyone with accessiblity issues.

Awesome views from the rotating
Awesome views from the rotating restaurant, on a clear day/night you can see all of the Niagara Falls and Toronto skyline. Rotation pace was almost perfect for our meal so we saw just a bit more than a 360 degree experience. Food was excellent but service could have been a bit more attentive e.g. people left napkin and dinner roll on wall as restaurant rotated.

Once in a lifetime experience.
The Skylon restaurant was wonderful. We had excellent service, food and environment. It's a great place for a romantic evening a the view from the revolving dining room is breath taking. It is expensive, but you're certainly paying for the view and experience. I would recommend to eat here is you can afford it.

Breath Taking View
Food was good, even though first filet came out over-cooked. Sent back and new one was perfect. Pricey but worth it. Loved the revolving room and perfect day to see for miles around. Our server, DeJan, was outstanding. Would definitely go back again if ever in the area.

Food was excellent, as was the view of the Falls. A must-do if you visit there.

The place is amazing , the views are out of this world. Just for that I recommend you go. But, there's always a but. The food is way over priced and I wasn't that impressed. At a 24.00 minimal per person I needed the WOW factor. You get the WOW factor at Eemeril Lagasse's restaurants. But the service was amazing! The staff was very friendly and I really enjoy it. So for that alone I recommend you experience The Skylon Tower. Thank you and God bless.

Nice view but expensive
My wife and I received a table next to a large group who were noisy and it was crowded. They were not set up for groups. Overall food and service was great but very expensive. Thankfully the portion size (as they stated in their video) was large. The view and than fireworks were well worth the visit.

Wonderful food with a wonderful vie
This was a wonderful experience. At first we thought it was a little expensive. We thought we were just paying for the view but we were very pleasantly surprised when the food arrived and it was well worth the money for the food that was absolutely delicious, and that only added to the marvelous view! Thank you for the awesome experience!

Anniversary love affair
We had a beautiful meal with a spectacular view and friendly staff. The complimentary dessert was much appreciated and very unexpected. It was a great place to celebrate our 47th Anniversary. We were told that the food was expensive , but when you put the whole package together we felt it was well worth it.

Food & views are spectacular!
My wife and I enjoyed a fantastc dinner at Skylon while being able to see the mst scenic views of Niagara Falls we could never have imagined. My Prime Rib and my wife's salmon dishes were expertly prepared and absiolutely delicious, not to mention the excellent apetizers. The service given us by Danielle and her associate Sauturo was first class, the very best. The dining room rotates slowly so that all can experience the Falls, and goes around one rotation every hour. The cuisine was well worth a visit, but the views made it all the more wonderful and extraordinary. We are eager to visit Skylon again just for the cuisine and service.

The view is one of a kind. Excellent service. The food not what expected.

It was a once-in-a-lifetime dinner. My husband and I sat by the windows, where the view changed slowly but constantly, showing all of the Niagara Falls area; we got to watch as the sun set and the lights below came on The tables were elegantly set, and the waitstaff never far away. My husband loved his seafood gumbo, pronouncing it the best ever, and his prime rib was perfect. Being vegetarian, I found the menu limited, but was glad the chef could substitute linguine for the rice in my veggie dish. The music, loud at first, became less so as tables filled up. The dessert menu looked good, but we were too full to chance it. Yes, the meal was expensive, but it was well worth it.

Rotating food was really good
This is the best food I have ever ate at any rotating restaurant. The service was great. I had the salmon and it was very good. My wife and kids loved the view. Great memories and it was reasonably priced. Great views of Niagra Falls.

This definately is a place I would recomend when you visit Niagara Falls. The food was pretty average but the view was spectacular! Best to go around sunset so you can get a great view. I had the salmon and it was excellent but my son got the steak and it wasn't the best. The desert was excellent and the atmosphere very nice

Best prime rib
We checked in 15 minutes prior to our time. Had our picture took prior to catching the elevator up. We were seated quickly by a window as asked for. Greeted quickly by our waiter and waitress. We ordered a bottle of wine and dinner. Seafood sympathy was delicious. Lobster tail was great size and portion was well worth price. My husband had the prime rib, perfect and tender. Nice size serving for the cost. The views were awesome. You can see Toronto from the tower. Had a photographer to take our picture at table, she returned later with portfolio with two pictures if you wanted to buy. Overall, it was a great choice, with great atmosphere, and delicious food. Would recommend to anyone who is thinking of having dinner at Tower.

Not To Be Missed
This restaurant had it all - good food, good drinks, good service, and an outstanding view of Niagara Falls. Eating at Skylon was like the cherry on top of an ice cream sundae.

The view was phenomenal and the food was delicious! We went for the early bird dining and it was a wonderful experience. The food could not have been any better and the service was impeccable. Would definitely recommend this for a "MUST DO" in Niagara Falls.

Great view and weather
We had visitors in from China and thought the Skylon an excellent choice for a view. It was also a terrific place for a meal. We were all very satisfied. Thanks very much!

considering that this place
considering that this place is a tourist trap, we enjoyed the food greatly. escargot is one of our favorites and they did not disappoint,

A friend advised me of this restaurant, and I am so happy that she did. The view of Niagara Falls on the Ontario side was spectacular. The food was very good as well, which is a plus because sometimes you have you give up one for the other. Meaning (good food, not a great view, or vice versa) The staff was attentive, but not over bearing. A delightful meal, and I'm sure that I will return.
