    Restaurant is beautiful, staff were amazing. Very personable and genuinely nice people. Went above and beyond their duties. The only issue we had was being all sat in the same area, with the restaurant being otherwise empty. We realize these were the prime seats with the view, but this meant being able to hear the conversations of those who didnt realize or care everyone could hear them. Sometimes you dont want to hear other peoples conversations. This is not really the restaurant's fault, and the service and food more than made up for it.

    The occasion was an anniversary celebration and it turned out to be right choice. From the moment we entered the restaurant to leaving, the overall experience was memorable. It was my fiancée's first trip to Tiara and she was overwhelm with the restaurant and hotel. Our regret was not staying in the Queens Landing, but we will be back and, this time, we will stay in the hotel. I had mentioned that we were celebrating an anniversary and that fact was recognized by the staff when we entered the restaurant. Our server was great, she brought us flowers throughout the night, was attentive to our needs and regaled us with stories about the hotel and the area. The meal was fantastic (I had the duck and my fiancée had the NY Steak).

    A lovely room, delightful menu with delicious food but the service just doesn't match the offering or the price. We were in a pre-theatre rush, however, so I would recommend trying it 7:30pm or later, or anytime on a Monday when the Shaw Festival theatres are dark, to see if things run more smoothly. Servers are doing their best, just understaffed.

    3 of us went for a lovely lunch and had a picture perfect view of the harbor and lake. The service was very gracious. We had our pick of the table litters as only one other was occupied. My only "complaint" was the portion on my scampi lunch which was $25. Only 2 good size critters, not enough to justify the price or fill my belly. The accompanying buckwheat grey pasta was visually unappealing and loading the plate to take up space that should have been occupied by another crustacean at least. The cutest part of the meal was the amuse bouche for desert. A wonderful maple ganache with dark chocolate flourish. But otherwise very nice.

    Dined on 8/31/2014
    Our visit to Tiara was supposed to be a special treat, as it is quite expensive, but overall the experience was a big disappointment. The decor is nothing special. Our waiter put rose petals on our table (rather than fresh flowers) and we discovered a chunk of squash from a previous diner in the mix! The $10 cosmopolitan tasted like vodka and cranberry juice. The appetizer, at $22, was very tasty but very small. My main course (the lake trout) was wonderful but my husband's steak dinner was "nothing special." The creme brule we had for dessert was too sweet and nothing special--the strawberry jam in the bottom was not a good addition. Definitely not worth $200!

    We was very impressed with Tiara. The mushroom bisque was delicious. The Caesar salad was smooth and not overpowering. The duck breast and white fish entrees were impeccable. Service was first rate, attentive and pleasant. The ambiance was romantic and classy. We really enjoyed this meal. The price tag is high, but worth the splurge.

    The service and management of the restaurant is way above great. Truly an enjoyable place to dine. Very accommodating wait staff and kitchen for any special needs or desires. One of the few area restaurants with a list of locally grown wines from many if not all of the vineyards. Locavares and others will delight in the fresh food so expertly and sensitively prepared and everything is done in-house. Vegetarians will have a great time, too. Watch out for the bread offerings. Difficult to stop eating. Very reasonable liquor pricing. Surprisingly competitive pricing of wine, too. Most of all this establishment has never wavered in its commitment to fine dining and just keeps getting better.

    It appeared the Tiara, uncustomarily, was either short staffed or having problems in the kitchen Wine (one glass each) was the first thing ordered but did not arrive until AFTER starter salads, bread, rolls had been served. Main entrees were slow in coming. The meal took an hour and 45 minutes to complete. The server did everything she could to make up for the problems and was very attentive. The difficulties were elsewhere. The food ,as usual, was excellent.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    This formal restaurant had the prices that I expected but the quality of the too-too menu was not deserving of the prices. I thought it was the restaurant the "tried too hard". And, it was not the fault of the restaurant or the hotel that there was an actual fire in one of the banquet rooms. Actually, that was the nice part of the evening since we talked to our fellow diners when we were evacuated. The staff worked hard to not have a high delay when we returned to the dining room about 30 minutes later. Although it was not their fault, dessert or a glass of wine should have been offered on the house for the disturbance. Someone had mentioned that the tables probably had to be cleared since our food had sat there. Uhj uh.

    We had Sunday brunch at Tiara. The restaurant is nice but very cookie cutter hotel breakfast restaurant in its decor. The disappointing part was the quality of the food on the buffet. Everything was just "ok", nothing was very good. It was kind of like one of the buffets at a Disney World resort or theme park in the quality of the food items. We wouldn't return to eat here. Our server was excellent.

    I was disappointed to see guests in shorts and flip flops. The music was not conducive to the atmosphere and there were a few minor oversights with the service. However, after mentioning in conversation that it was our anniversary we were presented with rose petals on the table, our dessert decorated with a candle and anniversary wishes and a long stem rose after dinner. But we have dined at other restaurants with comparable food quality and pricing where the "stars all aligned". Not so much the case here unfortunately. The food quality was lovely and we enjoyed our meal very much. But hopefully the Queen's Landing will regained the elegance and charm that this lovely venue so deserves.

    We are 4 foodies who were expecting to have a great experience after seeing the rating on trip advisor. We were very disappointed about everything from the beginning til the end. The ambiance was inexistant, it was smeeling raw fish, the food was disgusting, not fresh and not refine at all. It tasted like an average cafeteria. It is very expensive for the bad quality. Was there a chef in the kitchen?

Large quantities of food displayed. No tags on desserts. Guests asking/ guessing the names of desserts. Several dishes empty. We were there for 12 noon. Long delay in getting the bill. Not good for those who arrive and tell staff that this is a pre theater meal. Very expensive wines.

    Great menu, although we are not sure who does not know in today's dining world what "frites" are ( apparently removed from the menu because people did not know what they are?). View was lovely. Waitress was fabulous. Reminded us of a young Rosemary Barton. The neighbourhood is lovely to walk around. Mussels were very tasty, and just the right portion for lunch.

    The food was well presented but unremarkable for the cost. The waitress was irritated that we arrived late and advised us that the dinner was expected to be two hours' in duration. We indicated that we would forego an appetizer and would order promptly at which point she suggested that we order salads and that the chef would be able to cope (the restaurant was only 25 to 30% occupied). During the service of the meal and on our departure she repeatedly urged us to stay at the hotel when next visiting Niagara on the Lake.

    Four of us dined there and we all had excellent meals. My husband and I opted for Surf(spot prawns) and turf (strip loins). The prawns were large and tender and there were two good-sized pieces of meat, again very tender. Heritage carrots, broccoli rage and whipped potatoes nicely filled out the veg component. One friend loved the lamb t-bone while his partner very much enjoyed the Cabernet Franc braised duck. The service was outstanding! Rudy and Dan were both so attentive, personable and generally excellent. Rudy's knowledge of the wine list was very helpful too. Dan gets $1/grind of the pepper shaker so we were very careful with how much pepper we asked for! Dinner was completed by a lovely dessert plate (it was one friend's birthday).
