    Thoroughly enjoyed my meal at Windows. We had a seat right next to the window and the view was spectacular. We started with a cheese plate which was wonderful. For the entree, I ordered the tenderloin and the wife ordered the scallops. both cooked excellently and very flavorful. No complaints.

    My girlfriend and I went to windows for dinner, I had the lamb and she had the chicken two ways. Both dishes were fantastic. The lamb, which was ordered rare, was cooked perfectly and the chicken two ways with the gravy was delicious. Great atmosphere and services. Highly recommend going.

    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!

    The food by great chef Jamie Kennedy was fantastic. Beet and Stilton starter followed by a BC fish that was superb. My partner had a short rib starter followed by Ontario rack of lamb, delicious. The view of Niagara Falls was wonderful and we watched fireworks ove the falls with a brandy after dinner. The Ontario regional wines on offer were excellent. Service was helpful and friendly. A great night.

    We are a big fan of Jamie Kennedy and when we heard that The Windows restaurant has been opened with his menu (though he is not in the kitchen), we were very excited to try the place. The Windows has a great location, with fantastic view of the falls. Dining room itself is not very big, tables/chairs and stuff on the table were very ordinary though and did not match the quality and presentation of the food. Other than that, the service was excellent, our server was very knowledgable and helpful, food was excellent, presentation outstanding, and the wine list selection and price appropriate. We really enjoyed ourselves. I strongly recommend this restaurant for special occasions, and also for people who consider themselves foodies.

    The Nova Scotia Scallop with polenta is to die for. The scallop was cooked to perfection, and when taken with a bite of polenta, it was harmony. The Sable Fish with risotto was excellent. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and chose the perfect wine pair for us. Though it is pricey, but the view, food, wait staff and menu designed by one of the top Canadian Chef was well worth the money. I highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic night out or special occasion.

    The view of the falls was breathtaking, but the food was bland - at best! Both food and drinks were incredibly over-priced, and alcoholic drink portions were tiny (only 1 oz. of alcohol is used). Our server, Terry was EXTREMELY accommodating and took a personal interest in pleasing his customers. Avoid this place, but if you must go please make sure you sit in Terry's section.

    Went here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and had an amazing time. The ambiance was romantic, service was efficient and the food was fresh, unique and very delicious. Our server was well informed and pleasant. We started with house bread and infused butter! The scallops were cooked to perfection with a sweet and tangy sauce and the chicken two ways was flavourful and different. Dessert was to die for (we had the gluten free chocolate cake)! My only negative comment is for the the California roll, it was not what I expected and definitely not worth the money. This is why my experienced was almost perfect...

    We had a wonderful meal with a lovely view of Niagara Falls. The food was excellent, and the choice of wine was varied, and included a number of local wines. We chose the Taws Valley, on the recommendation of our waiter, and it was a suberb choice. My sister was very happy that there was a gluten-free dessert on the menu, and all the dishes used local produce.

    First, to get hold of this restaurant to ask a question is impossible. I had to try calling for 2 days. For a 4 diamond restaurant and the price of food, I expected a better ambience. The view was spectacular, but restaurant shares washroom with the buffet customers and there is a grey curtain separating the two restaurants. Food was only ok, needed some more seasoning.
