We came to Grill on King on Dec 31st for my fiances birthday as well as New Years Eve. Our waiter was fantastic (I think his name was Jeff?) I will feel bad if I am wrong.

He was awesome- polite, friendly and helped us pick out what we wanted to eat. The service was amazing.

The food- wow!! We left feeling so happy and so full. My fiance had the 14oz prime rib and I had the sole neptune. Best meal we have ever had. Thanks so much for the great New Years Eve!! I almost never clean my plate off at a restaurant but this time I ate everything!!
Please pass this message onto your manager.

Thanks so much we will be back again

This place was GREAT! Not too busy (we did go off season) and everything was spot-on. Esp. our waiter. He was pleasant, helpful and stayed in the background. The food was excellent. Our whole group preferred the Grill on King to another highly touted eating establishment in the area. We will be back.

Our food, drinks and server was wonderful. The restaurant was clean and inviting. One of our guests had a garlic allergy and they were very accommodating and offered dishes that were suitable. We would highly recommend this restaurant to all our friends and family. The prices were in line with what we feel is a fine dining menu, and we will definitely return. I was there this past summer and enjoyed lunch on the patio. Good value, good food, great service!

We've dined at the Grill on king number of times and keep coming back. Food is always good, nice ambience and service is always great. We make it a dining stop either before or after the theatre and have never been disappointed.

Had dinner with some friends and had a great time. Dinner and service was good. They even stayed later since we were talking and didn’t notice the time. No one ever pressured us to leave. Nice spot!

My husband and I have frequented Grill on King on a number of occasions and thoroughly enjoyed. This past Friday we had dinner with our son and his girlfriend. It was meant to be an evening of pleasant dining and catching up. It was a cool fall night and the restaurant door was left open the whole evening. It was extremely uncomfortable. I mentioned it to our waiter and he said he was hot because he was running around. We were sitting near a table for eight (I believe there were 7 diners). They were extremely loud the whole evening. It was virtually impossible for us to hear each other. While I would not expect the restaurant staff to ask them to keep it down, it would have been nice if they offered to move us to another table. Not sure if I'd go back.

Our visit to the Grill on King was delicious and enjoyable. The menu is varied, with plenty of choices for a variety of palates. The rack of lamb, especially, was excellent. Our server was also friendly and entertaining, adding to our enjoyment of our meal. This was my second visit to this establishment and I would definitely recommend it for dinner during your stay in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

We had a very pleasant evening at Grill on King. Our waiter, Sean, was great - from his sense of humour to his helpful suggestions. Our meals were very tasty...roasted chicken and mushroom rissotto. A nice atmosphere and great location in the heart of town.

Nice atmosphere and dinner fit for an anniversary. The ambiance is great for post theatre. The dinner entree could use more side veggies. The dessert apple pie a la mode was too pricy at 12.00. Skip dessert plenty of options in NOTL. Would recommend and visit again.

Such an outstanding meal and all the staff were super friendly. We couldn't eat dessert as we
were so full so our waiter kindly packed us a dessert for us to take with us.
As we were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary we thought they might have come up with a complimentary glass of Champagne!

We came here six years ago and it was fantastic - which is why I thought to bring my sister and brother in law here for her birthday. Huge disappointment! The service was fantastic, but the food was horrible and not worth what they're charging. They cooked my steak well done - it was dry and tough. Horrible. I asked for it to be medium. They attempted to cook another steak, but again, it came out well done. This wasn't the worst part, however. Their policy is that they can only take 25% off your dinner. So, I had to pay for a steak that I couldn't even eat. With two attempts, they still couldn't cook it the way I asked for it and I still had to pay!!?! I've never encountered this anywhere else! I asked for a grey goose and soda as my drink (on a Saturday night at 7pm) and they had run out of it. There was a reason that restaurant was empty on a Saturday night while all the others were packed! Never again!
