My wife and I go here every time we come to Niagara Falls. It is a little piece of food heaven in an otherwise poor dining city. A little pricy, but the quality is equivalent to a higher price tag in a bug city. Great for dates or special occasions!

Everything was really nice, food was delicious. Service felt a bit slow but it felt maybe more like they may have been understaffed and since the food was so good it was well worth the wait. Overall a great place to dine in Niagara Falls.

Service was impeccable. Our servers were professional, courteous and gave us wonderful recommendations.

We dined on a Thursday and took part on the “date night” special. We selected the half hen and upgraded to the tenderloin.

Both appetizers were exquisite, food was hot and full of flavour. We had the Bavarian cream for dessert and it was just the right finishing touch to our comforting meal.

Kelly and Erika (our apologies if I have misspelled your names) were so wonderful.

We were there in the off-season in November, and while a bit chilly and windy outside, it set a lovely atmosphere in the warm and cozy restaurant.

Awesome atmosphere and interesting concept (owns their own farm, produce picked daily, local ingredients when not grown themselves).
Some taste combinations were unusual, overall great experience.

Thanks.

Ordered Risotto which was suppose to have sirloin beef tips in it. The risotto was tasty but the beef in it was inedible, pure grizzle. I think they put scraps in, informed waitress but kitchen said that it was the end of the beef so that is what you get. Very disappointed.

I have had excellent meals in some of the best foodie cities in the world. We hunt down amazing dives frequently and treat ourselves to special restaurants a few times a year. I have not had such an excellent dining experience in quite some time. It's pretty amazing to take a bite of something and just stop and say "wow". I did that 3 times during this meal. From local ingredients, to wonderful service and a lovely atmosphere, AG is the whole experience.

My sisters and I brought my Mom (who lives in Oregon) to Niagara Falls to celebrate her 70th birthday. I chose this restaurant for quality of food, farm-to-table approach, and ambiance based on its excellent reviews (we chose another restaurant on our second evening in town for views of the Falls, which this restaurant does not have, being in a basement of a somewhat out-of-the-way hotel). The experience including food and service did not disappoint. Our table was tucked away, and though we could see other diners we could not hear them. The seating and atmosphere was very cozy. We started the meal with handcrafted cocktails from an offering of options that were mostly very sweet, but our choices (AG's version of an Old Fashioned and a Cosmo) were good. For starters, three of us had the tender leaf salad with the most amazing goat cheese I've ever had, and one person had the tomato bisque, which was peppery, flavored with bacon (?) and delicious. Our entrees were the scallops, beef tips risotto and the filet, with the filet being my favorite. All were very good. The sommelier, whom we called to our table for suggestions, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about local wines -- highly recommend asking for his advice (cannot remember his name - sorry!). All of us had dessert, I ordered the white chocolate creme bruleee and did NOT share. It was delicious. All in all, we were delighted with the meal, and my Mom was one happy lady. Highly recommend.

You're asked if you're coming for a special occasion when you make a reservation, which in my case was a birthday. Yet when you're there, the is no acknowledgement of the fact. Even after stating it, it's still not acknowledged... what's the point?

This was one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to! Everything was absolutely wonderful. The food was so delicious and the service was excellent! I can not stress enough how great the food was. And it was very fairly priced, especially for being in Niagara Falls where most restaurants are severely overpriced. This restaurant is an absolute hidden gem! A must try if visiting the falls!

 (Minneapolis)·Dined on October 14, 2017

I agree with other reviewers that the location of this restaurant is a bit suspect - located in the lower level of a very unassuming small hotel. But once beyond that vibe, it was a very pleasant experience with professional service and fantastic food. It really is about the food! The BLT bisque and lunchbox peppers were both great appetizers that we shared. Our four entrees were the lamb, heirloom tomato and fennel risotto (ultimate foodie comfort food), the scallops and the beef tenderloin. All were excellent entrees. While we didn't think we had enough room for dessert, we managed to demolish a seasonal one with crème and caramel that was a bit uninspired, but the gelato was to die for. Order the gelato!

Celebrated an anniversary.
Staff was very attentive and knowledgeable on the menu choices.
Husband ordered the beef, one of the best cuts of meat I have ever tried. Cooked to perfection, soft, cut like butter. I ordered the scallops, which was tasty. The only downside was the broccoli side was very much burnt and the occasional bite of scallop was sandy.
The food quantity plated was just right for me. If your looking for a generous playing of food you may be disappointed.
Piano player was a great touch to the evening. Menu prices were fair for a nice meal.
All in all great experience, different from some of the other restaurants we've been to.
