Truly amazing fresh and thoughtfully crafted meal. My husband and I spent the week in Niagra Falls for my birthday, and were looking for someplace nice to eat that wasn't the tourist trap fare normally found near the falls. AG really fit the bill. The ambiance was romantic and classy. The prix fixe menu had lots of tasty sounding options, and we were pleased with all of our dishes.

Food was delicious. If your a foody you will love this spot. The service is spot on and you are not rushed! Food is delicious and the chef pairs excellent ingredients with meats and fishes. This isn’t a tourist trap it’s a hidden gem! It’s the real deal! Wish it was closer to my hone so I could go again!

The ambiance and service is definitely amazing. I love how knowledgeable the waiters/waitresses are about the food and take the time to explain to you. The food was good but I expected it to be much more flavourful than it was..We had the signature AG dish and lamb.. The desserts are very tasty..The place is worth a try..

Excellent meal! We have been to Niagara Falls many times and never been to this gem. Inside the Sterling Inn and Spa, this restaurant has grwst ambiance, knowledgeable wait staff and incredible food. Farm to table but not too crazy out there with choices. From appetizer to dessert every bite was delectable. Excellent, low key live music. Will definitely go back.

A bit of a hidden gem, because it's in the basement of the Sterling Inn. The food is excellent and shows creativity. Ontario VQA wines are the focus of the wine list, as they should be for a place in Niagara. Service is smooth and knowledgeable.

About the only knock on the restaurant is that it feels a bit cold. The lights are bright and the interior is stark.

The restaurant was nice, pretty setting and decor had the fix prix meal first course was the chucuterie board was nothing like expected it was presented horribly and the combinations were simply not good. My boyfriend had a salad presented sloppy leaves hanging over the plate and pretty plain. A women beside us ordered the same salad and hers was loaded with toppings. Ordered a long island in which the server wasnt sure if they had all the mixes brought me a “long island” just full of lime juice and charged $16 for.. my boyfriends drinks were all watered down. My main course was the pork tenderloin it was so delicious cooked perfectly. My boyfriend had the lamb it was very chewy no flavour. Our server and the hospitality we received was not good we were there almost 3 hours the pauses in between meals were far to long nothing was really explained to us and no friendly conversation like the other tables were getting. Not once was our water glasses refilled until she had to-be asked to after waiting for over an hour with an empty glass. Our server overall wasn't very friendly yet would spend 20 minutes on end talking to other tables while we patiently waited for some service. We were celebrating anniversary and valentines so the service really spoiled our time. I would not recommend alcoholic beverages here unless your simply getting wine. It was an experience for sure a bit over priced but we would recommend just for others to try for themselves.

I went on Valentine's Day as a special date with my fiancee. I must say to start the food was delicious. The environment was amazing and the food was delicious!!! (Had to say it twice) the the staff was attentive and nice and welcoming. It was a packed house so it was a bit loud in there and the space is much smaller than I thought since it was the first time I had been. Besides that it was a great experience and wonderful menu and me and my fiancee will be back for a normal dinner service as they had a special menu for Valentine's Day. I love that it was farm to table and I love the portion size. It was a great experience.

This was one of the best meals I've ever had. Luckily our other dinner plans fell through found this restaurant kind of by accident and SO happy we did. All the plates we had were perfectly cooked and seasoned. Our server was delightful and very helpful! Definitely will be back next time we are in the falls. I would call this the perfect hidden gem.

Walking in the door and being led to our table was lovely. Beautiful space and a sexy energy. There was only 1 plant based meal option and no plant based starters or desserts. We modified our salads to eliminate the dairy and all were still delicious. Just make a plant based starter :( Our dinner was delicious but our brussel sprout side dish was the $10 star of the whole night. Absolutely perfect. If I had a plate of them with the baba ghanoush, it would have been enough. It was lovely...slow and lovely. Will definitely go back....just might go for a glass of wine and brussel sprouts!

Great vibe, food and wine. Would definitely go back. Lots of good things to try, and had a great acoustic singer there.

Sounds silly but we would have loved some crushed black pepper on one or two things but were never offered.

What an incredible experience, from the first time we all got there so the very last second, we were treated so well and the service was incredible.

They offer a 25 dollar corkage fee which was nice for a holiday party considering there were many of us who liked different things.

The food was next level, the flavours and little elements of it all went so well!

3 course for 59 dollars, I felt the supplement prices were also super fair. Everything was amazing and we will 100 percent
be back.

Food and service was supurb. Our food servers were very friendly, polite and versed in describing and assisted with the of choosing menu items.

The front desk personnel were friendly and understanding, especially with handling a small issue with the room's jacuzzi tub. She reduced my already reasonable hotel fees.

The ambience of the Inn and room decor was spectacular. The rain shower and side shower heads were invigorating and relaxing.

WE’ve been to the AG a few times. The food is always excellent. It’s never seems to be busy but often seems to be understaffed. On this occasion appetizers and main dishes were outstanding, dessert was up to it’s usual yumminess. Service was good but not exemplary.
