  • Decent option in Niagara with a few suggestions
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/24/2014
    We were in on a slow Monday evening. Beautiful view, sat against the window overlooking the falls. There's not really a bad table in the restaurant. We brought our own wine, there is an 18$ corkage fee. Worth it if you want to drink some of the lovely wine you picked up at a local winery. Service was decent, friendly, but not exceeding expectations. ..that could be a next step to push the restaurant from good to amazing. Beautiful ambiance however the curtain separating the restaurant from the buffet unfortunately doesn't buffer the noise of large families and babies crying just next door. Overall the experience pleased us. Food was great, well seasoned. We started with the soup of the day and squash chorizo soup. Chorizo soup was perfect. And both soups were seasoned great which is something that usually dissapoints us. Our mains were the chicken two ways and the lamb rack. CChicken was great. Lamb was good however the delicious flavour of the local chop was smothered in a grainy mustard that overpowered everything. Not sure it's necessary on that plate. Also 6 chops portioned two per section are obviously cooked after portioned. First chop I ate was perfect midrare. While second and third were closer to midwell. More attention there would have made it all the better. Besides the few things I've mentioned I would return again and would recommend this restaurant to my industry friends looking for a nice place to dine in Niagara. Oh yes, one last note. A server should never tell a guest the kitchen boys are breaking down/cleaning the kitchen to imply that dessert should be ordered. Honestly I shouldn't have to care about that. I'm there to enjoy a meal and our reso was at 730. It's not like we strolled in at 9 asking for a meal. That is a mistake many establishments make. You are providing an experience, follow it through to completion! You'll be better for it.

    My girlfriend and I were celebrating our one year anniversary and decided to try Windows by Jamie Kennedy, a decision which we would make again in a heartbeat. Our waiter was extraordinarily helpful (I believe his name was Corey?), giving us recommendations and answering all of our questions in a very courteous manner. My rack of lamb was absolutely exquisite, and my girlfriend's chicken was equally delicious. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough if you're looking for fine dining in the Niagara Falls area.

    We were so fortunate to have dinner with best friends at this fabulous restaurant. Although the view was incredible we were all too busy tasting each others food to notice. From appetizers to entrees to wine - will have to say that this meal is in our top five. Service was amazing as well. Do not miss out on this dining experience if you are in the Niagara area. I honestly cannot say who ordered the best meal. Our table ordered the lamb, scallops, sablefish and the chicken - all out of this world.

    Breath Taking scenic view. Food was very pricey and tasted pretty bad. 1.Apettizer - Shrimp and Lobster was bland and no taste. 2.Main - Scallops had sand and grit in them, very noticeable when you chewed on it. We asked for them to be cooked throughout and 2 were still undercooked. Wasn't mommy to be friendly. 3.Main - Rack of lamb was drowning in the reduction. And the lamb was bland, and very difficult to cut and eat. This is a dish I've ordered many time in fine dining restaurants and for the price JK charges, it was not what I expected. We didn't complain as we wanted to enjoy our evening out to celebrate our anniversary. But thought others and the JK management might want to know our experience.

    Our server Terry & the manager went out of their way to make my husband's birthday celebration exceptional. They seated us at a premier table with an amazing view, after the first available table was not to our liking. Terry was very knowledgeable about the menu & specific ingredients & had the most pleasant personality throughout the evening. He paced our courses so that we would remain in time for the fireworks celebration. The bartender went the extra step to decant our bottle of wine. The manager stopped by to ensure that everything was to our liking. The service was top notch. Best scallops I have ever had! The view with the fireworks for his birthday was phenomenal! Thank you for making his birthday so memorable!

    My wife and I were quite tired after a day of shopping... so despite it being my 40th birthday, we decided to each have two appetizers at the hotel restaurant rather than go out. What a fantastic decision. The food was awesome. The (complimentary) cheesecake was better than any I've ever eaten!

    The food and service were exceptional. The view of the falls was spell binding. The waiter was friendly and described the dishes and wines without being snobbish or haughty. I had for appetizer the seared sashimi tuna that was on special and turned to be a delight, with crushed olives & capers. My wife had the cold shrimp & scallops (yes shrimp= one humongous shrimp cooked to perfection). For main dishes, the Nova scotia scallops were huge and delicious but the polenta did not marry well with the scallops. My better half had the sable fish and I had a bite: it was flaky and very tasty. The lemon tart that we shared was the best we have ever had anywhere. You have to try the peppermint tea that came in a pot that gave us three generous cups.

    My girlfriend and I recently attended Windows for dinner on her birthday. The food at this restaurant was amazing - we enjoyed the Salad as a shared appetizer - very fresh/local and the smoked bacon and chevre cheese were delicious. Main courses ordered were the Sablefish and the Scallops. Sablefish melted in your mouth and the accompanying risotta was also quite flavourful and perfectly prepared. The scallops were large and tasty, and we also shared an order of the famous twice cooked fries - once again, perfect. When it came time for desert the waiter brought out a piece of cheese cake with a candle free of charge. Service was impecable - great suggestions and very helpful. Would recommend this restaurant to friends any time.

    My fiance and I had an incredible dining experience. Our romantic night started off with the beautiful view and the atmosphere which was rounded off by the helpful and cheerful server. The food was delicious and well proportioned. We had the squash soup and shrimp/lobster appetizers along with the warm bread and peach butter. Then we had the scallops and beef tenderloin for entrees. Both were simply delicious. We even had side dishes of seasoned french fries with the best sauces for dipping as well as sauteed mushrooms. Last, we capped off the meal with the most wonderful peach dessert. It was like an open tart. I wish I could remember the name, but it was delightful. I would recommend highly!

    Really no words to describe the experience adequately. I've never had such an outstanding meal. Never have seen "sablefish" on a menu. I often find vegetables either over or under cooked. These were perfect! Also, the risotto. There were four of us and each meal was outstanding. I am someone who always adds salt or pepper to my food. Not that night. Never missed it. AND I could taste every subtle flavor the chef bestowed on his creation. Our sommellier was a great help and gave us some background on the wine we chose. (we had two bottles). Our server, Lorne, was very polite, professional and personable. All in all, a perfect celebration of my daughter's 50th birthday and my first visit to the Falls. Thank you Jamie!!

    My girlfriend and I spent the weekend in Canada at Niagara Falls for my 35th birthday. We covered a lot of ground in just 3 days. Our first night we had reservations with a place considered to be "done well" and I was not overly impressed. I had been to this type of dining before and thought it could have been better. As soon as I looked at the menu for windows I knew right away I wanted the scallops. My girlfriend thought the same, so I went with the salmon. They were both great choices. My girlfriend says, some of the best scallops she has ever had. I loved everything that came out, but at the top of my list was the pear shallot butter that comes with the bread. Wow! Oh, and I cannot forget to mention our server was second to none.

    Our meals were fabulous and memorable to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. The only unfortunate thing, was a very young baby crying and screaming frequently during our meal. We realize the restaurant is not responsible for people bringing babies into an inappropriate scenario...but it was definitely irritating. It was an expensive meal and ambiance is as important. Would recommend this restaurant most definitely.

    Made a last minute reservation on a Saturday and since there were a lot of times available i thought it might not be good. We were very pleasantly surprised. The view of Niagara Falls is spectacular. We had rainbow trout and salmon which were both done to perfection. The service was attentive. Great dining experience. Surprised that there were not more people there. Maybe it is a little pricey and not a place fir kids so that may deter some people from dining there.

    What an amazing experience! I discovered the restaurant a few weeks before our trip was scheduled, so I just threw my name on the list in hopes of having a somewhat decent meal away from most of the tourists in NF. What we got was much more than we anticipated. Our server was amazing, explaining all of the dishes to my husband and even recommending a wine that would go with both of our dishes equally (hubby had beef tenderloin and I had scallops). He was exceptional and descriptive. With the beautiful unobstructed view of the Falls in front of us and some romantic lighting above, it was the perfect setting for our romantic weekend. We will be back! With friends!
