    Dined on 11/15/2014
    We are locals and visit Queens Landing a few times throughout the year. We were eagerly looking forward to our dinner on Saturday, November 15th during their Winterlicious Tasting Menu. We both had the crab cake which was ok, a bit thin, I think it would of been better served as one instead of two thin crab cakes. Our appetizers came out very quickly even before we finished the bread they offered us but there was a long wait for our entrees. I ordered the Rainbow Trout which was excellent! My husband ordered the strip lion and added a lobster tail for $18. The plates of which our food came on were pipping hot!! I began eating and my husband was putting his lobster trail in the drawn butter when the waitress asked how our dinner where and we told her fine. My husband then tried his steak but it was stone cold. We called the waitress back, she appologized and took my husbands dinner away. When she arrived back, I had finished my entree. My husbands had more potatoes on the place and the kitchen staff had dumped his lobster on the plate and poured gravy over it. The steak was not much warmer and upon tasting, was a poor quality grizzly steak. This is saying something because my husband will eat just about anything without complaining. At this point, we said to ourselves, there was no further point in having them try to fix it because we would be sitting there for another hour or so. My husband had cheesecake for desert and the waitress allowed me to switch out the coco creme brulee to a ginger creme brulee which was delicious. The cost of dinner with wine and a lobster tail was $160. At this price point, a restaurant needs to exceed my expectations as there are far to many 5 star dining options in Niagara to choose from! Cold food, does not exceed my expectation. We won't be back and sadly won't be recommending Tiarra.

    We had outstanding service. the waitress was very knowledgeable about all the food selections and wine pairings and took such care to make sure everything was perfect. the atmosphere was perfect and romantic it made our anniversary even more special. The food was divine as was the presentation! from the rose petals scattered across our table to the soft music and lighting. and to top it off, an unexpected suprise with our desert... Placed together on a plate bearing happy anniversary with a candle. It was a special evening made even more special by the service we recieved. Also you get so much food we were so full. Perfect perfect perfect. cant wait to be back!

    -Open Table reservation system was flawless. -Staff & server were cheerful, accommodating, attentive. -Elegant and relaxed ambiance. No Versailles palace, but exactly what you'd expect to get from an upscale British restaurant in NOTL. -Beautiful classical music played in the background: classical piano works by Beethoven and the greats, etc. -The portions were generous. My steak was delicious, but I was surprised that my side order of veggies had very clearly been frozen. I could have made that myself. I definitely expected fresh food at that price! -2 things I would change about this restaurant: a) the name (Tiara? It's cheapens the allure of Queens Landing); and b) I would give my customers more menu options to chose from..fresh options.

    Our party of eight enjoyed our pre Shaw dinner at Queen's landing. We especially appreciated the round table, which allowed for equidistance of all, contributing significantly to and enjoyable meal, enhanced by good conversation, and a very ambient atmosphere. The young lady taking our orders was quite helpful, and your support staff smoothly efficient. My husband and I found our steaks to be exactly as ordered, and simply impossible to leave unfinished--which is definitely a positive compliment to the chef. Your food was plated very attractively, especially the deserts. We have visited your facility in prior periods, chose Queen's Landing for one wedding, and would definitely recommend it, and return for dinner going forward.

    My husband and I were here for a quick romantic weekend getaway in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We chose Tiara based on Trip Advisor ratings. This was one of the most fabulous dinners we have ever had in a restaurant! I had the duck that had been brined in Cabernet sauce, with porcini mushrooms and brussel sprouts, all in a plum gastrique. It was incredible! Everything was delicious and perfect. We enjoyed the leisurely pace of the dinner and the quiet table at a window. We hope to come back again.

    We dined at Tiara on recently for our anniversary. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Jill, our server, brought us rose petals for our table and even gave me a rose to take home for the special occasion. She was so good about explaining the specialty items on the menu, and everything we had was superb. My only complaint was that I was so full after an app and my entrée that I had no room for dessert! Just another reason to return on our next visit to Niagara on the Lake. I can't wait to return in the spring or summer and sit outside.

    My wife and I wanted a nice quiet and romantic getaway for the weekend. Tiara delivered. We were placed at a window. The food was great and service was good (service was good however he seemed to be friendlier with guests at other tables for some reason). My steak was cooked to perfection as was my wife's thanksgiving dinner special. Good portions left only enough room for us to share a dessert. Nice atmosphere.

    I had requested a table by a window for my wife's and my anniversary. The young and wonderfully pleasant hostess, Erin, cheerfully took us to a perfectly located linen-covered table, with white and red rose petals covering the upper area! Nice touch! Our server, Rudy, couldn't have been more professional, delightful, and accommodating! I had the White Fish special which was perfectly prepared, and equally delicious! The dinner was marvelous and romantic!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.
