    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.

    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

    We very much enjoyed our dinner at Massimo's except for three minor details. Once seated we waited at least 10 minutes for service, once we got service it was impeccable but too long to wait. Secondly the food was amazing except for the calamari. Honestly that is pub style calamari and we were shocked that it was not of a better quality after all isn't this the type of calamari they dis on Restaurant Makeover? And lastly we tried a Pinot Noir that was on the special list and it tasted very much like a fruity Kool-Aid. How could they keep that on the list? We did not complain to the waitress but thought we would share this in hopes they might do something. Overall a good restaurant and we would go back, the Bolognese was to die for!!

    How come rainbow room isn't advertised more? I've been to niagara hundreds of times and never heard of rainbow room until I stayed at the Sheraton. Maybe because I usually stay at the hilton I didn't hear about rainbow room? But anyways Service was great! Our waiter was amazing, such a nice guy. Loved how we received two complimentary shots of beet & carrot juice,delicious!! The calamari fritti were to die for. The dipping sauces are so yummy! My bf and I ordered the lamb racks and omg they were the best lamb racks we have ever had!! The view was just so beautiful as we'll. Honestly move over Ruth's Chris in niagara from now on we dine at Rainbow room!! Portions are great, very filling! Wish we had room for dessert :(

    I booked a seating for 4 to bring friends to the restaurant for the first time 1.5 months in advance. Our table was not ready when we arrived. Then we were seated overlooking the neighbouring buildings Hvac system. I mentioned I was unhappy with our table location considering how far in advance I had booked (an alternate option was not offered). Our server also pointed out that the kitchen closed at 9 (we had an 8:30pm seating) therefore she needed to get our orders in. I was shocked. We all skipped appetizers due to the timing and went right to the main course. My fiancé ordered dessert while our friends were still eating their entree because we felt rushed. A disappointing experience considering the food is always delicious.

    I choose this restaurant for two reasons. The first is the view and the second is the chef. The view was limited unless you had a certain 5 or 6 tables in front of the falls, the other tables did not offer such a spectacular view they claimed on their website. Second the food was not good at all. Salmon was dry, calmer made from a frozen bag, kids pizza was worse than McCains. The house salad was good and as was the warm bread. However service was very slow (not blaming the server…but it was) The dessert took over 20 minutes to come out and not that I need anything free, but they could have offered.

    If you appreciate fine dining in an atmosphere that isn't loaded with pretentious servers and staff, then this is the place for you. Fresh organic ingredients, artfully prepared cuisine and the beauty of the Niagara Falls come together at The Rainbow Room to create the perfect dining experience. Bring your favourite people and experience how food should be prepared and presented. Would expect nothing less from a restaurant with Massimo Capra's name!!

    Seated by the window with a gorgeous view of the falls. We had cocktails to start along with the artichoke appetizer and charcuterie board. Both were fantastic. Our entries were equally so. Scallops, tenderloin, rack of lamb and the halibut - all were superb. We had well paired wine with our meal and finished it off with a lovely dessert of dark chocolate and caramel. The only downside was the accidental burst of bright light at the of the evening (closing time?). Luckily we were about to leave. Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience and we will return when we visit again.
