Excellent food with farm to table freshness and a spectacular attention to promoting local flavours. All-Niagara wine list and some great recommendations from our server.
Will definitely go back on our next time through Niagara

The ambiance and the food was great. Except for our server Darren who was very elusive and non attentive at all. A couple who were seated just after us and beside us were better served. Their server told them everything that was on their plate and what to expect. Ours were just whatever. If you happen to be non caucasians. Beware as you will not be treated the same...the atmosphere got very sour after realizing that we were not having the same treatment as our neighbors. Overall it was a bad experience tbh.

The best charred octopus ever. I’d go back and have the octopus for starter, main and dessert. The AG beef ternderloin portion was perfect for a 3 course meal, cooked perfectly and was delicious.

We very much enjoyed our evening at AG. The atmosphere is quiet and elegant. The wait staff were relaxed, friendly and professional. We had the Thursday special of steak frites for two, and a bottle of very good local merlot for $69.00. I would highly recommend AG!

Came to AG for dinner after reading the rave reviews. Service and atmosphere was top drawer. Was surprised by, but liked the three course meal for a set price. My husband is not a fan of desserts, so he was able to choose two appetizers instead. I had the candied beet salad, which I really enjoyed; he had the charred octopus salad and the steamed mussels. Also, I should mention that before our appetizers the chef sent out a little pastry with venison that was delicious! On to the main course... I was hoping when I booked the reservation that we’d be able to have the venison loin that was on the menu online, but it was not on the menu that evening, instead we both chose the AG Signature tenderloin of beef. Unfortunately, this entree was a huge disappointment. The tenderloin was generous in size and cooked to a perfect medium rare, but it was under seasoned and the melted Brie (with no almond crust) did not compliment it at all. The vegetables that came with it were also nothing to write home about - the lemon garlic greens were flavourless and the fried potato patty that it all sat on tasted like a soggy hash brown. I really wish I would have ordered something - anything, else. For dessert I had the caramel Creme brûlée that came with a ginger molasses cookie, both were delicious.
All in all, it is a very nice restaurant and the service was excellent but the main course was so underwhelming that it has left a bad taste in my mouth for the whole experience. With all the nice restaurants in Niagra Falls and N.O.T.L., I would try somewhere else before going back here again.

Everything was outstanding
Terrific flavours, well-balanced.
Impeccable staff.
Ambience was lacking for a couple of reasons.
One it’ was a Tuesday mid winter - can’t help that!
The room feels dated. Classic yes. I do not require an instagram-able room, that’s just ridiculous. Just might be nice to update a little. That said I will make a point to return in each & every visit to the Falls. Well done & thank you to all

The restaurant is at the lower level of the inn good for those staying upstairs. Not a big one and nice and comfortable seating. With choice of a la carte or between 2 set of 3 course meal. Everything an upscale restaurant should have, they got it. A spot for adults or couples looking for a romantic and charming dinner. Kids or noisy people, eh, not for them and don't take them there to spoil the tranquil atmosphere.

I chose AG at The Sterling for a Valentine's dinner with my wife. Niagara Falls does not have the best dining options in my opinion, even the higher end chain steakhouses that have been added in the last few years do not compare to the Toronto locations. So when I found AG and read the reviews I was excited. We were both very happy with our experience at AG. The night we dined had a 3 course dining menu. Each course had a number of items to choose from. We had charcuterie and bone barrow as our appetizers. Both were great and the charcuterie was large enough to share. For the main course I had venison and my wife had the lamb. They were able to make a substitution to my wife's meal to my the experience even better. Mine came as is and I was very pleased with the flavour and the portion size. Venison usually comes as a very small portion, I would estimate my plate came with between 8-10oz of meat. The desserts were also very good. We paired our meal with a bottle of wine and found the final price a very good value for what we had. Would definitely recommend.

I had the coconut curry mussels, Arctic char, Brussels sprouts, kale salad, poached pear dessert, a chocolate shot of port, and a local sparkling wine. The mussels were incredibly tender and rich. I had to stop myself from drinking the curry sauce straight out of the bowl after I was finished. The Arctic char was a delicate and light flavor with a firm, flaky texture. I hadn't had Brussels sprouts in a chili sauce before, but it was a great combination. The poached pear....it came with a chestnut tart, and I wish I had realized that eating the pear and tart together, instead of one after the other, was my best bet for flavor-- but that's my one regret for the entire meal. The wines were delicious, and the waitstaff showed a lot of pride in talking about the local vineyards and flavors brought to the table.

I left feeling like the food was so good, I could die happier for having eaten here. As for the price: I ended up spending $250 American, $325 Canadian, for a meal for three people. I think maybe that's quadruple the cost I'm used to paying for a meal, AND I enjoyed it at least 4 times as much, maybe even 10 times more. I'm planning to save my pennies to try out more expensive restaurants more often.
