Greeted promptly by friendly hostess. Service was good. Menu has lots of choices.
Was disappointed with the mushroom risotto. Not enough mushroom flavour.

We were there for dinner before a show at the Shaw festival. The food was delicious and our martinis were appropriately prepared. Service was friendly and attentive, but not overbearing, and the food was prepared and brought out in an appropriate amount of time for prepared fish.

Highly recommend for your Shaw festival dining.

Was vacationing in NOTL and saw this restaurant on a brochure. Chose it mostly because it has patio dining which is not common in NOTL. Wife had the orange roughy and I had the rack of lamb. Both were incredible! Perfectly done and presented beautifully. Service was impeccable as they were very accommodating and did not rush us. The weather was perfect and the outdoor seating was comfortable and pleasant. Just a great dinner in a great town. I highly recommend both.

A most pleasant eatery with both outside porch and inside tables available. Service was efficient and most congenial. Our group of four had a variety of dishes, The Atlantic Salmon, The Calves Liver, The Seafood Fettucine, and the Seafood Neptune. All four entrees were deemed to be absolutely excellent, adequate portions and nicely flavoured. The collective agreement that the meals were superb was easily reached. Highly recommend this eatery. We will be back for sure.

We first ordered onion soup which was more than half soggy bread. Our guests ordered Sole which was very overcooked, the rice was tasteless , the meal was not even adequate and the cost for those two meals & one onion soup was over $100.00. I could NEVER recommend this restaurant.

Not only is the wholesome, fresh Mediterranean cuisine excellent, the presentation & service are superb.
The tender, grilled calamari was divine, as well as the salmon inside dining is warm & private, w/ a large bar.
Conveniently located in the heart of town, near hotels, historic sites, park & shops.
After my first visit, I returned the next day & the following day...Hats off to the Chef & all 3 of my fabulous servers who made this American feel like a local resident!

Grill on King is just off the main street in Niagara-on-the-Lake and the food was very good. We had Sole Neptune and the New York Strip steak, and both were very enjoyable. Our waiter, Chris, was fantastic! I would recommend this as a stop before an evening play.

My fiance and I were in NOTL for the first time to celebrate her birthday. We chose this restaurant for her birthday dinner and I put a special request to let them know this. I also called earlier in the day to make sure they were aware and they confirmed they were. Dinner came and went with no acknowledgement whatsoever. Our waiter was pleasant but when we got there only the lunch menus were on the table, we were never asked if we wanted drinks, and toward the end of the meal the staff all just appeared to be socializing in the restaurant. Food was good.

Overall great experience. Food was really good and service was great. Normally prefer to sit outside - but the weather wouldn't permit. Although a little loud inside - not too bad - could still hold a conversation.

This was our first visit to this location. We were pleasantly surprised. Most of the restaraunt sin town are too expensive for us to frequent very often. We lived in town for about seven years and we would come to the Grill again.

We've walked past the Grill for many years when we come to the Shaw Festival and want lunch. This year we decided to walk in. Should have done this years ago!! We had a great lunch with a wonderful, bubbly waitress and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Service was fast, food was very good and the place is very nicely decorated. We will be back!!

We were sat as soon as we arrived on a busy Saturday night per our reservation. Table of six, all dishes were perfect, with compliments to the chef for the liver, crab cakes and steak all done to perfection. We travel from the states and always eat here. Restaurant was full, noise level was good and our server was attentive. We had one guest that requested a special meal and changed sides-all done with no issues. We will continue to eat here every visit. Entire restuarant was clean, staff friendly and curtious. Best meal and ambiance in NOTL!

The only reason I didn't award full marks is because there was a large loud party (with children and babies) beside us who treated the restaurant as a private space, even going so far as to make speeches of a personal nature... like you would hear at a wedding. The restaurant should not have allowed this. Otherwise, the food and service were excellent.

The food and service was great. Very cozy and quiet. The waitress was very knowledgeable and they were more than accommodating to our dietary needs.
I highly recommend Grill on King for any occasion. In our case, we had dinner before doing a carriage ride and wedding proposal.
The location is right in the middle of all the shops, bars and tourist attractions.
We will return again.

This is a very nice restaurant with very good food in a great location. It also has parking behind the restaurant. Unfortunately, the night that we were there, it was not very crowded, so that takes away from the ambience. However the service was exemplary and our table liked the smoked salmon platter, the steak, the orange roughy, and the spanakopita appetizer.
