    We brought our 2yr old to the early supper, and we all had a fantastic time! I would have liked more diversity on the kids menu, but our girl enjoyed her carb/sugar heavy meal! Worth the money spent. I'd go again.

    My husband & I went here for dinner to celebrate my birthday. The service was decent and the food came out in no time. I would not; however, recommend this place for a night time visit in the colder months. The idea behind the restaurant is that you are able to see both the US and Canadian Falls. Because it was autumn, it was pitched black at 6pm. We didn't get to enjoy the breathtaking views of the Falls because it was too early for the night lights to be turned on the Falls. Taking pictures was also a challenge due to the dark.

    The Skylon has a very impressive view of Niagra Falls and the surrounding area. The seating was a little cramped on the aisle side. The table legs were barely on the raised part of the floor and the table was a little too long to fit the small area where it was set. The service was excellent! Pricing was reasonable. We would definitely return, but ask to sit at a window table next time!

    I had read mixed reviews online and was unsure of the restaurant. However, it was my husband's 60th birthday and he wanted to go there, so I booked a table for 8. It was outstanding. The wait staff was efficient; but not stuffy. They had a sense of humor and interacted with our outgoing and personable group. The food was incredible. Several individuals went for the surf and turf and were not disappointed. Other entrees were delicious as well. Everyone in our group felt the experience was extremely enjoyable. We booked at 6:00 which was a perfect time as we got to see the falls during daylight and after dusk when the night lights made the entire sky gorgeous. It was not the touristy environment it could have been, it was classy!

    Started when we we were sat directly beside another couple.. Like I mean like a table for 4 split down the middle with about 4 inches between the 2 tables.. Felt sorry for the people behind us who ended up with some loud mouth beside her chatting it up while they were trying to enjoy a romantic meal...food was bland...expected alot more for the price ...plus accumulated 24$ in soft drinks because they failed to inform us there was not beverage refills!! Overall not impressed!!!!i would on the other hand reccomend the 360 restaurant at the CN Tower..if you are looking for a nice romantic meal!!

    Dined on 9/16/2014
    We were excited to experience the "world famous revolving dining room" but were sorely disappointed! The food was below average and ridiculously expensive (OpenTable needs to update its price range). We were jam-packed into the dining room to the point it was quite uncomfortable and we were practically on top of the other diners. There was barely room between the tables and chairs for the service staff to move. While we had a reservation, we had to wait 10-15 minutes for a table and were not offered to wait at the bar. While we expected a cheesy tourist experience, we walked away feeling like we were completely fleeced.

    Dined on 9/13/2014
    I was very disappointed with my entree. I ordered salmon and it was a very thick piece, I was expecting it to be medium well but it was dry and overcooked. I complained to waiter and they gave me a dessert that I was not interested in without asking how they could resolve the situation. Them asked it if I wanted a to-go box. Really? It's not edible here what makes you think if I took it home it would be any different. It is for this reason I would not visit again. At those prices that is truly unexceptable. That was my only issue, everything else was awesome and we got a bonus sunset...absolutely gorgeous!

    Reading many reviews that had disparaging remarks I was apprehensive about dining at Skylon, but was pleased with the overall experience. First, if the restaurant is busy like it was when I dined then just go ahead and say hello to the table next to yours; the tables are so close that it's like you are dining together anyway. The food was better than I anticipated, although I'll admit the half baked potatoes were dry. That wasn't too bad, but on the down side the rest of the dinner was almost one note. The breaded shrimp and scallops used the same breading and there was even a bit on the lobster. Still, the scallops were cooked excellently and the lobster and shrimp were very good. It was an expensive dinner, but worth it for one night.

    We visited this restaurant over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Once you arrive at the building, finding your way to the restaurant was confusing. We figured it out eventually and got in line for the elevator to get up to the restaurant. Of course, there was the sales pitch to have your photo taken. Another line took us to the elevator and we rode to that floor. The wait for a table (had reservation) was just a few minutes. The ambiance was good, friendly service and a view that was spectacular. We saw both the horseshoe falls and the falls on the American side from the restaurant. My only issue was that it was hot in there!! They can certainly cool that restaurant better.

    My husband and I were celebrating my birthday and our 1 year wedding anniversary... The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. If you do not like to sit close to other people I would not recommend this restaurant. It was not something that bothered but you do sit very close to others. My only complaint if I had to give one would be the price.. It is very pricy however it was totally worth it for us. We really enjoyed our experience and met some wonderful people.

    When I made my reservation and when I checked in I requested a table by the window so my 3 kids could see or a table that would view the fireworks when they came around. It was not that crowded and I got neither. Kids cant see in the back row of this restaurant and we had to get up during our meal and walk over to the other side to see the fireworks. If you go with kids and don't get the table you want don't sit down, Wait for the table. The view make 1 rotation an hour, so anyone should be able to figure out where you want to sit for 10pm fireworks. If you dont think you got the right table, just leave, it is not worth the money with kids.

    My wife and I made reservations for this restaurant for our 25th wedding anniversary. The staff never acknowledged our special event even after I spoke to them directly. To say it was a disappointment is an understatement. Not only was the service lax at best, the food was extremely over-priced and not good at all. I chose to have the Prime Rib as it was recommended to be excellent. It was horrible. When I asked for extra au jus for the dry piece of beef they served me, they provided me with a cup of "burnt" liquid. The potato side was as dry as a piece of paper and the vegetables were not very fresh. We would have expected much more for $200.00 for a meal. Don't waste your time or money going to this "tourist" trap.

My only wish is I would REALLY love to see a more notable wine list for such a high end restaurant. Many Niagara region wines, but not much else worth mentioning as far as wines go.

    Made a reservation - but was seated on a first come, first serve basis. The food was not at any quality for the prices; drinks were overpriced. When asking for specific liquor, received a drink that was clearly made with bottom shelf liquor but was charged the higher amount. While the concept was cool, will not return.

    Based on some of the reviews I read prior to going I did not have high expectations. This is a very good restaurant, service was really good, had rack of lamb, very good as well as calamari and escargo. Calamari was fresh, and food arrived timely. The dinning area revolves around the falls 725 feet off the ground, enough said about the view. Would recommend this on several levels, if you are only going to Niagara once, I would take in this restaurant.

    Really enjoyed this. The food, service, view, it was awesome and well worth the price. Go for the early dinner at 4:30. The food selection is great and you won't be disappointed. We weren't rushed and were treated like special guests! We even opted for a glass of house wine which added to the bill but made it even more romantic. Strongly recommend doing this at least once in your life, although not worth it for little kids.
