Diner Reviews
  • "Great view with excellent service, price is reasonable for the area and with such view. Great for all occasions."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "What a great dinner for my wife and I! Booked this online based on reviews and it is everything everyone says it is. The view is spectacular. Wonderful full view of both falls and the Canadian side. The service is top notch!! We were constantly checked in on by either our waitress or the Asst. Manager. Our waitress was extremely helpful with drink selection for my wife. She definitely knew the menu and drinks. The food was as visually appealing as it was delicious. My wife got the filet, and it absolutely melted in her mouth. It was devine!! We have found a new special occasion dinner spot!!!"

  • "Excellent service and above average food. Outstanding view."

  • "My girlfriend and I had an incredible time. The food was fantastic. We had the calamari appetizer which maybe the best breaded calamari i've personally ever eaten. For Entrees she had the Halibut which was a special of the day and I had the Rack of Lamb. Both where cooked perfectly and tasted even better then the dishes looked. Which was incredible. The servers where quick, polite and very friendly. The view of the 2 falls was also a nice treat while eating. Will definitely go back."

  • "I have to say...I had low expectations. I thought it would be an expensive tourist trap....labelled fine dining but with underwhelming food. I was completely wrong. The food was AMAZING. High quality and cooked to perfection. Presentation was beautiful as well. I have been to very few tourist/hotel area restaurants labeled fine dining that actually fit the bill. The Rainbow Room was definitely at the top. I will reiterate because it was just that good....the food was AMAZING!!!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "While the view is breath-taking, and the service outstanding, our entrees were a 50/50 split as to impressiveness. The scallops were second to none; however, the lobster risotto left something to be desired as the lobster was scarce and the flavor just wasn't there."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Highly anticipated but a total disappointment. Overly large, poorly presented main courses, tasted like 'tourist food'. Any relationship to his Mistura restaurant is purely coincidental. I fear Mr Capra has 'sold out'"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We were visiting from Maine and found this place on-line. The view was amazing, we watched the fireworks over the falls from our table. Our server Matt was the best! The food was outstanding, everyone loved their meals in our party of 4! We will be back."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "My daughter & I had a lovely experience here. The view was fantastic & the food was excellent cuisine but you will pay for all of that of course."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "We took a ceasar salad which was delicious even I found it a little bit acid. The linguini carbonara dish was fabulous. It's the best pasta I ever ate. It's the same for my boyfriend who take the half chicken... The cheesecake is very tasty and creamy.. it was so delicious. It's our first cheesecake and we don't regret it."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The restaurant is very classy and soothing. The music is not loud, the service, discreet. We had the pear&proscuitto and the fried artichokes, then the eggplant involtini and the scalops. The appetizers were delicous, and nicely portioned. The eggplants were perhaps overpriced but delicious. They might have been too little as a main, though. The scallops were on a bed of beets risotto, delicious and creamy, in addition to visually very appetizing. The paired wines were available by the glass and the waiter graciously accomodated our requests to share most plates (we like doing this to increase our ability to taste more options!) I was concerned being in a hotel restaurant in Niagara Falls on the strip but was not disappointed!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "The chef at this restaurant was highly recommended and written up as one of Canada's top chefs. Overall we found the food very ordinary. I had the pork chop, which was nothing special. My husband had the lamb shank, which again was just OK. The food was not bad, and the service was good and it is a really lovely view. We just didn't find the food as special as we expected."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "We just had our first experience at Rainbow Room this past Friday and can't wait to go back! Not only was our view amazing, our server Amy was probably one of the best servers we have ever had at a restaurant. She was extremely knowledgeable on the food, neighborhood, wines, etc. She was extremely friendly and made sure that we were happy with our meal and service. The food was served beautifully, delicious and I loved the fact that the ingredients were fresh. Can't wait to go back. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Overall everything was good. If I had to point out the negatives, the service was a bit slow and although we had requested a table with a view of the falls we didn't get it. Nevertheless the staff was very accommodating and nice, and we had a great time. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "When we made our reservations, we included that we were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary. They were completely prepared to ensure we had a memorable meal. Our server, Tammy, was the best. We started w/a very good calamari. In addition, we were treated to a chef special complimentary appetizer. Our main courses of salmon and Mediterranean sea bass were exceptional. We washed everything down w/a local Riesling wine which was also very good. Our desert of a filo dough cheesecake was also complimentary and it too was delicious. The restaurant made our meal a memorable one and we are very thankful that they did. We would definitely dine here again and highly recommend the restaurant to anyone visiting Niagara Falls, Ontario."

  • "My girlfriend and I had dinner here during our stay in Niagara Falls. Our meals were prepared with care, were very well done, and had great flavors. The staff was extremely polite, helpful and friendly and the service was excellent. We'd definitely return on our next visit!"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "My husband and I went for dinner during our trip to Niagara Falls CN. We were seated at a table overlooking the falls. Our waiter, Matt, was extremely knowledgeable regarding the menu and local places not to miss! Our food was delightful, not too much but just enough to satisfy our hungry bellies! It was presented beautifully. I would definitely go here again!"
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "My husband & I had dinner at The Rainbow Room for our 1st Wedding Anniversary - and it was PERFECT! We were greeted by Ellie - who was very nice. Our Server (Matt) was knowledgable and DOWN TO EARTH! We had a wonderful Fallsview "window" table which allowed us to see THE most beautiful rainbow half way through our meal. We now know why they call it The Rainbow Room :). We can't say ENOUGH about how delicious the food is. DELICIOIUS!!!!!! Esp. the Seared Sterling Salmon & the Butternut Squash soup!!! Overall - our 1st Wedding Anniversary was well spent; but dining at The Rainbow Room was an extra little "cherry" on top. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "The view of the falls is nice but due to the orientation of the windows and the time of year (May) the sun is shining into your face. Wines we wanted were sold out. Then the waitress uncorked the wine and splashed it all over me. Shirt and pants. She was quick with the soda water and paid for a dessert. Just one. (I thought they should have comp'd the wine as I wore some of it). Ordered meat and cheese plate that came with no cheese. Huh? Waitress had to check with the chef on that one. Main course was seared scallops over risotto that was actually quite good. Cooked perfectly. Really wanted to have a special anniversary dinner that turned out to be just ok. "
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Beautiful view of the American Falls and the Horseshoe Falls in the distance. Friendly staff. My wife had the Rack of Lamb which was excellent, large portion size and very tasty. I had the Linguini Carbonara which was decent. Calamari appetizer was very good. Prizes are at the fine dining level, service was very good. The décor is outdated and worn. Needs an update badly."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "We enjoyed our experience at the restaurant but the directions on the website was a nightmare. We came from the US side especially for Mother's Day dinner and did not know the area. We had to stop for directions at a visitor's center. The kind lady there told us the directions we printed from the website was all wrong. I would like to see that corrected for future patrons of this very nice restaurant."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "This was recommended for having excellent views; they were adequate, but some of the windows on this 10th floor restaurant atop a one time premier hotel (now the Crowne Plaza) are obscured by columns. Scallops and rack of lamb are their two signature dishes. The lamb WAS superior. Scallops atop a somewhat chewy risotto would have been overpowered by the hollandaise-like sauce that is best asked for on the side. Service was attentive and enthusiastic, and was the overall redeeming factor. This place has seen it's day, and I suspect there are better views and better food in newer, less "tired" surroundings. Nevertheless, dinner was enjoyable, and we left satisfied."

  • "Wonderful view, excellent food and super wines. Great experience, thank you!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We had a great experience at Massimo Capras Rainbow Room. The food was in our opinion 5 star and the service was great. We would reccommend the Rainbow Room to anyone visiting the Niagra Falls area."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The restaurant was very beautiful with an amazing view of the falls on the US and Canadian side. We generally get a bottle of wine with dinner to compliment both of our meals, but the menu offered suggestions with each item -- so we decided to follow it that evening. They were nicely paired and the Fettuccine Bolognese was extremely delicious. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Food was great, view was great and service was excellent. Price was slightly steep, but the rest made up for it."

  • "Dinning experience was very nice. The service was friendly and inviting and food was served promptly!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I had the diver scallops dish which I just loved. My husband had the chicken and thought it was very good. Rosemary bread with pepper hummus was excellent. I will definitely return and try Caesar salad and pasta."

  • "The Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra (in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada) is an excellent, top-notch restaurant to visit for a special occasion, an intimate dinner or delightful dining with friends and/or family. It offers quality food (local when possible) well-prepared that your senses will savour at the time and that your memory will fondly hold as an amazing meal to have enjoyed. The scenic views of the Niagara River flowing over both the American and Horseshoe Falls are spectacular, especially when illuminated at night or when a fireworks display is given. Well worth a visit to Niagara Falls by itself, even if you don't take in any of the many other activities/adventures to enjoy while there. Advance reservations strongly recommended."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "The restaurant is "tired". It needs to be spruced up, at least the entrance."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "This is our second time to the Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra and the food, service was just as great this time. This time we celebrated our 30th Wedding Annivrsary and a I would reccommend this restaurant to all my friends. Also a great review was given by me on TripAdvisor."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "This is by far the best restaurant in the Niagara area (the Canadian side of course). The view is amazing, service is excellent and the food is delicious. The pear salad is delicious and I've had several of the pasta dishes and they're all equally good. It's absolutely worth the trip to the other end of Falls Drive. One word of caution, we called to get reservations and were told the earliest was 8:00 PM but Open Table had many other options."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "my husband and I went to this restaurant for an evening meal. I am vegetarian and was more than impressed with the vegetarian options. I absolutely loved the eggplant dish that I ordered. The artichoke appetizer was absolutely amazing! My husband ordered the fish which was the special of the day and he really enjoyed it too. We had an excellent experience and would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. We had a beautiful view of both waterfalls and our server was super friendly and knowledgeable. I have not had a meal this delicious in a very long time."

  • "Only good thing was the view. Food was mediocre. The service was slow and pretentious."

  • "We selected The Rainbow Room specifically because it is Chef Capra's restaurant. We were not disappointed!!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "This place was nice. Food was tasteful, pretty and well cooked. The best thing about this place was the view of the falls. Little pricey and for us it would be a special occasion type place. It is in a hotel so no real shock about the pricing. The view was amazing especially at dinner time, sadly the sun blinded us half the meal. After sun set it was AWESOME. Artichokes were amazing, followed by healthy portions of pasta and fish. Wine list was not extensive but was tasteful."

  • "I was a little dissappointed that they didn't have Halibut, but the substituted fish was very good. We enjoyed the quiet relaxed ambience and the wonderful view."
