    Went in the off season (late fall). The place was not busy. Had an 8pm reservation. Walked in at 6, was seated and got almost the best table in the house. A group of 4 beat me to the best (in my opinion). Although dozens of tables have prime views, not just a couple. The service was fast, and excellent. The bread and spreads were very unique, and tasty. Wine, is not my thing, but their list was extensive. Dinner looked, and tasted excellent. But my one criticism, the strip was a bit tough. Cooked perfect, but a bit tough. Now, can one blame a chef for tough steaks? Are do you blame the cow? Not sure on that. The view alone is worth the visit. The service will bring you back. And the food most likely will as well. Mid to high end price for prime viewing, great food, and ambiance. I would go at night, if possible.

    We had a delightful experience at the Rainbow Room. Our server was very courteous and helpful with the menu. She helped us select a bottle of wine as well as our food. The artichoke appetizer was magnificent. My girlfriend had the salmon and I had the beef tenderloin and both meat plates were exquisitely presented.

    The view of the falls was amazing and it was nice and quiet during dinner. Other restaurants you can't hear yourself talk. The only issue was the price of the food. It was a little to pricey for the food that you get. Cooked well. However, still not worth 35 dollars for salmon or 44 for a steak. Would have been better if you got more of a side and not just vegetables.

    We were visiting for our Anniversary and was going to go to Skylon but the reviews of the food were not good so I tried Rainbow Room. The views were impressive of both falls and the food and service were wonderful. Christopher was a great waiter, efficient, helpful and very professional without being to familiar. The food was delicious and I enjoyed event he unexpected things like the scallion dip with the Calamari. They bought us desert for our anniversary which was very nice but unexpected. Where we live this would have been a 400 meal but we got out of there for 166 which was a steal. I would highly recommend this place.

    I booked this restaurant after researching online. It was my wife's birthday and I wanted to make it a special dinner. When we entered, it was a bit noisy and there was a certain food smell. Perhaps the table right near the entry had ordered something. We were given a table by the window but the view was not great. But then the greeter came back to us after a while (good attention to customer satisfaction) asking us if we like the table or if we would like another table as some tables were freed up. We were seated a table with a great view. Our server was Tammy. She was professional, pleasant and detail oriented. The food was amazing right from starters all the way to dessert. It was our best dining experience.

    We really enjoyed our dinner at the Rainbow Room on our recent visit to Niagara Falls. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Our server, Sarah, was terrific. She was knowledgeable and made excellent suggestions. Their special cocktails were delicious and the wine pairings offered with the entrees was helpful. She was attentive without being overbearing. The restaurant is a little pricey but worth it for a special night with a spectacular view of the falls.

    Celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary at The Rainbow Room was the highlight of our trip to Niagara Falls. Service from our waiter, Christopher, was refreshing. He was attentive and professional while friendly and considerate. The Pan Seared Diver scallop dish I had was the BEST I have ever had...tender, tasty and not at all gritty (as they sometimes are)...excellent! My wife had the eggplant Involtini- also very tasty and prepared to her liking...thin tender slices filled with a cheese mixture that was exquisite! She toasted our anniversary with a special cocktail, the Marilyn Monroe... wonderful! and for dessert --Blood Orange Crème Brûlée/Italian blood orange and cinnamon scented Budino, candied walnuts and berries - was to die for!!!

    A total disappointment First it was very difficult to find does not explain that it's in the Crown plaza hotel 10th floor Second parking was a challenge since it's self park and we had to go to the 6 th floor to find a spot take the elevator to the 2 floor lobby walk around to find another elevator to take us to the 10 th floor When we were finally seated it fealt exactly like you were in a hotel restaurant not a Capra restaurant When were given the menu , it seemed Italian inspired , but not noticed no Italian wines on the very limited wine list , no Italian beer , we were told they had to serve only. We only had apps Massimo should spend more time here if his name is on the door Octopus carpaccio topped with corn and sausage, really?

    We made reservations online for the Rainbow Room, which was so simple and because we were staying at a resort hotel, we received a $40 voucher for dinner there. It was an absolutely amazing experience. The view is unrivaled with the falls lit up in the evening. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the lights are low, creating a romantic atmosphere. The steaks were prepared perfectly (though we both preferred the NY Strip to my Tenderloin) and the complimentary appetizers were fantastic. Our server, Gary, was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine items and took great care of us. Although this fine dining experience costs quite a fine penny, we both felt that the experience was absolutely worth every Canadian cent.

    From the time we stepped off the elevator the experience was outstanding. We decided to sit at a bar table prior to dinner with a bottle of wine and enjoy the spectacular view. We were acknowledged by all staff that passed our table...just with a simple hello, or welcoming remarks, we were made to feel like we were personal friends or family, how refreshing. The staff was exceptional and so knowledgeable, the menu was explained with such detail. They seem to be as passionate about the food as the Chef himself. All the ingredients are sourced locally and of an excellent quality. What a delicious dinner! The food exceeded expectations. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves good food and warm ambiance.

    It was our anniversary dinner. It was very romantic & very special. The restaurant is on a higher floor and we were seated by a window overlooking the beautiful Niagara Falls. They were lit up since it was evening. Our hostess was friendly and seated us promptly. Our waiter was exceptional and paid special attention to our requests even though he was very busy. We had read where some thought the food was pricey. We thought that given the location, the atmosphere, the view and the presentation of our entrees that it was not overpriced. Our seafood linguine and the sea scallops were delicious.

    The pork was ok, nothing special and the butternut risotto was too chewy . The artichoke hearts were very greasy, pass on those, but the salads are excellent . THE DISH to order is the diver scallops. The beet risotto was perfectly cooked and the blood orange sauce.....YUM. The scallops melt in your mouth.

    I made the reservation for 6 pm but had to call and move it to later because we were running late. When we got there the hostess made my husband and guests have second thoughts about my restaurant choice because she was scrambling to get a table ready off in the corner of the restaurant, i figured we got sent of to the corner because we brought our 5 month old son. After that our server (who's name i can't remember) was wonderful she made up for everything her manners were excellent and her knowledge. The food was wonderful from the initial palate cleanser to dessert. My husband having been a restaurant owner isnt impressed often or easily, he was extremely impressed in food and service. I would definitely recommend this place.

    While the meal itself was was very nice, the service very disappointing and the restaurant was very quiet at the time we arrived. I felt we were an afterthought throughout the whole evening which was disappointing. We sat for 10 mins before being acknowledged by our waitress, then everything happened in reverse order and different to other diners. Our bread was brought out after our appertiser was served, the steak knife was brought after the meal was served (other tables had bread while waiting for their appertiser & steak knife on table straight after ordering) dessert had to be sent back as although the bowl was very hot the dessert was very cold. The table next to us even had the wrong meal served. Overall disappointing
