    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.

    Ingrediants are very fresh, however prices are very high. Beer only comes in bottles as well. If not for the $40 promotional voucher with a hotel package, it would not have been worth it. Service is excellent though.

    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.

    The food was good. Not an extensive menu, but plenty of selection. The appetizers were very fresh tasting and just the right size. The scallops were good as well. Nothing really exciting or over-the-top, just good food. As a result, because there was nothing spectacular or overly memorable, the prices are a bit high. The service was fine, not great. The views were awesome, but the ambiance fell flat.

    The Rainbow Room offers an impressive view of Niagara Falls. We reserved a late night dinner (9:00 PM) so we could watch the fireworks over the falls. The staff dimmed the lights for the fireworks display and the result was an unobstructed view of the show. I would definitely recommend this location for the view alone. The food was also equally impressive. Everyone in our dinner party was raving about their dinner selection. Overall, definitely a great choice for a romantic and scenic dinner.

    We made a reservation. When we arrived they sat us by a window with a view of Niagara Falls that was the best we had all week. The waiter was knowledgable, friendly and very helpful. The food was wonderful, every bite was full of taste, this was a sensational meal. I had the scallops, they were very good. The crusty fruit dessert topped off the dinner. If I come back I would make an 8 p.m. Reservation so I could enjoy the lights on Niagara in the night time. This is very fine dining so be prepared to pay for it. We spent $150.00 for two people.

    My husband and I had dinner here on a Monday night in July 2014. The service was excellent and the view is just amazing! We could see the American and Canadian Falls perfectly. The food was just amazing! It's not cheap, but well worth the money. Compared to other restaurants we ate at while in Niagara Falls, the price was only slightly above the others. But I can't say enough about the food. It was just so amazingly delicious! We ate here once 5 yrs ago before Massimo Capra took over and it was very good then, but Chef Capra has taken this restaurant to a whole other level! Don't miss eating at this gem!

    I was last at the Rainbow Room 2 years ago for a last minute Easter Sunday booking. I loved the food, the view and the service then. When my mother's 81st birthday came around, what better place for a special dinner? I had the wild board agnolotti with the sour cherry sauce. My mother had the seafood linguini and a friend had the fish special. We had a lovely table overlooking the Falls on a sunny evening. Desserts were wonderful and our server was attentive. I will come back any time that I can.

    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!!!

    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.

  • Wine Pairing Offered on Menu
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 6/28/2014
    This place can be classified as fine dining although the atmosphere was relaxed. The food was ample and tasty;and so fresh that the greens in my salad had supposedly come from the sous chef's garden that day. I think every restaurant should offer wine pairing and they do here! It makes choosing a wine so much easier for the wine enthusiast who isn't a connoisseur. We had a view of the Falls which was lovely and the weather cooperated but I wasn't so impressed by the roof we had to look beyond to see the Falls, not a big deal though. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive. When following the directions indicating how to get here, they stop at the elevators. Keep in mind that you then have to go up to the 10th floor to reach the restaurant.

    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!!!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
