    The Watermark has terrific views of the Falls. Both service and food are exceptional. My only complaint is that they seem to have priced some of their wines extremely high. For example, Mollydooker "The Boxer" is priced at $99 when you can buy it at less than $30 a bottle. A more reasonable price for a restaurant of this class would be $60 - $75.

    Was looking for a nice restaurant with a view of the falls. This was it. I did expect to pay a little additional for the location and view but the final tab was ridiculous. They don't list their prices anywhere online and now I know why. I don't mind paying for good food, but it was below average. I could have purchased a better steak at my local supermarket and the fish was nothing exceptional. The appetizer was excellent. My wife and I felt we would have been better to order two appetizers each. Service was ok. Forgot to bring a salad but charged for it on the bill. Overall, great view but the final tab really put a damper on the entire experience. Never again.

    We went here for our anniversary which i had noted on my pen table reservation. As soon as we checked in the restaurant, the wished us a happy anniversary! The view was amazing which was expected. There isn't a bad seat. What we didn't expect was for the food to be so good! We each had steak. One tenderloin and one prime rib. Both delicious and not over seasoned. It's a pricey meal but for a special occasion it was well worth it.

    Upon arrival we were seated at the corner table surrounded by windows which was amazing. Upon making the reservation I was informed the restaurant could and would accommodate my gluten free diet. The service was horrible, to be honest we had better service at the breakfast buffet that morning than we did during this $225 dinner. Our waters were NEVER refilled, when asked for a non-caffeine soda I was informed they had none and he would not offer any alternatives. When we ordered they had no idea what gluten free options were available and during several courses would bring my food informing me it may have gluten in part of it. For $225 I expect much better service. I would only go for drinks to enjoy the view yet eat elsewhere!!! D-

    The view of the falls and the restaurant surroundings were fantastic. The food was okay but considering the high prices, I would have expected more. We thought our appetizers tasted better and were more interesting than the entrees. Service was friendly and efficient for the most part, except one of our four entrees came almost ten minutes after the others.

    Our experience at the Watermark was good as always. We have been there several times since moving to Niagara Falls. Our waiter was attentive and the food was beautifully presented. The prawns with the different sauces was really good and the beef tenderloin was extremely tender. One cannot ask for a better view of the falls especially once the sun goes down. Would highly recommend the Watermark for a good evening and wonderful ambience.

    Service slow in between courses. Crab appetizers came to table not hot enough. Servers "short-handed".We had our reservation in over 1 month, and table wasn't ready when we arrived on time. We were placed by a POST blocking our scenic view for our Anniversary dinner. At the price a customer pays here, paying vital attention to details should be their # 1 priority to making the experience for their guests great. We came 1500 miles to enjoy this night, and paying spend prices would be fine for us, but balance the money by giving us flawless service.

    Overall very good experience - the food was top notch - you must try theur Fois Gras as it was out of this world. Only slight compaint was the light level, we dined in May at 8.30 - the lighting was fine until the sun went down, then the entire resteraunt was very dark. Other than that, would highly recommend.

    This is the perfect restaurant to have a romantic dinner and view the falls. We had a table, just overlooking the falls and watched the colours change over the water. The cold made the river dam up with chunks of ice. It was interesting to watch. The waiter was extremely courteous. We are not big eaters nor do we drink alcohol. He was still very polite and attentive. The food was just good. We chose the salmon which came with basmati rice and assorted vegetables. The vegetables were fresh and cooked perfectly. The rice and salmon were on the dry side. It needed a sauce, or the rice needed vegetables or something to add some moisture to the whole plate. I would still go back to the restaurant for the view.

    My wife and I have been to Watermark Restaurant before, therefore knew what to expect. We requested the little 'room' in the far corner with windows surrounding us, which made for a beautiful scenic experience. It was evening, so the lights of the city were simply stunning. My wife had the salmon, which was delicious and cooked to perfection. The rice was a bit bland, but that is our only complaint. Wonderfully cooked veggies. I had the squash filled ravioli with cherizio - which was off the chart delicious. Curls of fresh parmesan cheese atop it made it particularly tasty. The extra virgin olive oil with himilayan salt bread dipper was exceptional! Friendly staff, incredible ambience. Overall a romantic spot for couples.

I found it a little pricey considering we only had the soup as an appetizer two new York steaks and one glass of wine and soft drink - no dessert!!

    Watermark offers excellent food, with a varied selection that should capture most peoples appetites; the views are stunning, and though limited window seating is available the whole restaurant is well laid out so that some view of the Falls both USA and Canadian Horseshoe are visible. Attentive and knowledgable staff made you a well rounded dining experience.

    We had requested a window table to view the falls and we were given a corner table which was quiet and wonderful. Our drinks were amazing and so was the service. The location is amazing. Food: you really have to know the menu and it depends on your taste. We really didn't like our food so we spoke with the manager and she was kind and gave us a discount. If you receive a voucher when you check into the Hilton, take it with you. The voucher does say only for Monday - Thursday but they will accept it.

    We went on a Sunday evening. I made sure our reservations were late to get a good table and enjoy the fireworks! The presentation is wonderful. I think the prices are a bit high and there could be more diversity on the menu. The hotel provided vouchers and we knew going in - it would be a little pricey. If they mixed up their menu a bit it would be fantastic. Perhaps dinner for two with wine would be more reasonable for the $139/special. Overall, we are glad we experienced it!

    The food is a little over-priced for the quality. It is good food, but I've had better at a lot of different restaurants where I paid a lot less. I think you are paying for the view and experience more than for a great dinner. The appetizers and desserts tend to be better than the main course.

    Unfortunately we expected much more from an exclusive restaurant. The prices were very high for food that was mediocre. The salmon was over cooked, the caesar salad was nothing special, and the dessert was just ok. I would not return. We had a great waiter who was clearly over worked, he was running between tables he did his best, very professional. The food was not the worst but it was definately not up to par with other fine dining restaurants.

    I especially loved the ambiance of the watermark and the views were spectacular. I woul have loved to have had the time to enjoy a breakfast or lunch at the restaurant to really take in the spectacular views. My only complaint is that the pasta dish was not the best. As the only pasta dish on the menu i was expecting atleast a savory enjoyable dish although I found it to be extremely bland with overcooked pasta. The chef's soups of the day (cauliflower) was delicious but this was only after I traded my tomato consommé because it was unbearably salty (not only my opinion but my fiancé concurred on this) the restaurant traded my soup for a charge of 1 dollar, no biggie. The restaurant has a great romantic feel and was quiet and enjoyable.
