Did not like the waitress telling me the percentage of my tip after leaving a decent one. She thinks you tip on taxes and fees. I tip on service and food. We mentioned we on our anniversary when booking and nothing noted on our stay. So don't expect a candle or anything. Food was ok but the value wasn't there. Doubt we will return. Place was cold and not romantic at all.
Awesome food and awesome service. Price is reasonable for Niagara Falls food. We had the luge, soup, and snails for starters and they were excellent. The Pork Belly and Duck Confit was to die for. The Cheese plate and gelato flight were perfect endings. In the future would come with more people to try the other dishes that they had on their menu.
The food was absolutely incredible however I have to say, the service is a big part of an experience and I have to say, without our Server Mel, it would not have been near the amazing dinner we had. She was just phenomenal. I'd go back here for sure.
Service was good and the food was delicious. Everything tasted fresh and are from local source.
Went here due to the high rating online. Made a reservation and had to put credit card down. Arrived and immediately questioned our decision to come, area and building were run down. Food attempted to be “fancy” but seemed more like a toddler threw things together. The snail dish had many elements that did not compliment each other, including stale frozen puff pastry. The red deer entrees was a mixed of what felt like left overs from the kitchen. The pork belly was good, but the addition of lamb sausage was strange. The desserts were terrible, store bought and stale. This was an expensive meal and would not recommend.
The food was outstanding snd the service was amazing.
AG offers original cuisine that is fresh and exciting. Although the entrance and frontage is a bit unorthodox and, frankly, a little off putting, once inside the restaurant proper it is modern yet still warm and inviting. The red deer was superb as was the escargot appetizer. The creme boule desert could have been tastier and the apple tarte was disappointing. The wine and martini were first rate.
The food was well presented at the table by the knowledgable server, and the servers were friendly, as a retired chef I appreciated the way the food was cooked to perfection and the way it was visually plated. A very good meal for my wife and myself for our weekend in Niagara, will will visit for sure on our next trip.

Ottima cena con menu degustazione, prodotti di altissima qualità e sapori ben bilanciati. Ottima anche la scelta dei vini, tutti della zona di Niagara.
Though some of the dishes were flavourful, nicely prepared, we didn't get that significantly 'farm to table' sense... the dated, dark 70's cocktail lounge environment felt contradictory to descriptions we had read in advance of our visit.
And at your pricing, we would've appreciated a more inspired experience.
The service was commendable.

Great service, even better food. Sort of dark and they need to find a better way to help celebrate special occasions other than a candle. But overall...Will for sure return.
My wife and I visited AG Inspired Cuisine for our anniversary and we couldn't be more pleased with our experience. The food was incredible and Fallon (our server) was extremely welcoming, friendly, and knowledgable with recommendations throughout the evening. The duck and pork belly were delicious and we appreciate the locally-sourced ingredients. We would greatly recommend this restaurant for your next special occasion!
Great 3 course menu with some fantastic local wine and impeccable service provided by Jacqueline
Awesome food and service! I would highly recommend this spot. Definite diamond in the rough.
Nice place, dark and romantic in the basement of a building with a spa in it. The food was great, the service was really amazing.
Interesting menu, food was delicious and beautifully presented but could have been hotter. Portions are not large but are satisfying. Nice ambiance, good service. We enjoyed
As always food was amazing along with the service. I always try something new on the menu the Juniper crusted loin of red deer and it was delicious. You can't go wrong eating here.
Excellent dinner, enjoyable evening and Fallon our server was amazing!
Amazing experience, can’t wait to go again. Food was superb. Fallon made the evening the most wonderful it could be
Best restaurant in the Niagara Region by far. Besides the food being top shelf, the staff are amazing. Definitely our go to.
Very interesting menu. The only issue is it must be 3 course dinner. They do not allow 2 courses for the dietary challenged. I.e. skipping either the starter or dessert, and charge less.
My wife and I went AG to celebrate our 45 wedding anniversary. This was our first visit. The service was outstanding- our server Jackie was very friendly and answered any questions we had regarding any of the food. She was extremely helpful in helping us make our wine selection. The service was prompt without being rushed. The food itself was delicious. We will definitely return in the future.
Just what we wanted for our anniversary dinner. A quiet atmosphere, and excellent kind service ( thanks Fallon!) Beautiful dishes with care in the prep.
Food was mediocre. One of had the Flank Steak which was very tough, barely edible. The starters lacked seasoning and the pork belly main was not properly rendered down and very fatty. They charged surcharges for certain dishes was is not appropriate for a 75 dollar dining experience. Overall very poor value for money. I would not dine here again.
Reading the overall reviews about food in Niagara we were worried we wouldn’t find anywhere to go. So we booked AG Inspired Cuisine and OMG it surpassed our expectations. Our server “Jackie” (I hope I get her name right) was amazing. Knowledgeable and attentive she made us feel at home! It’s a 3 course menu ($75 which is about £40 a head). I had octopus, beef tenderloin and Creme brûlée (supplements for some dishes). My partner had a summer salad, beef tenderloin and home made gelato. The food was the vest we’d had all trip! We are had amazing red wine (suggested by Jackie) along with pre dinner cocktails and after dinner drinks. I couldn’t fault the experience. Ps look past the decor and the journey to the restaurant it’s a little dated but you won’t be disappointed once you are there!!!! (I’ve added pics but forgot to take one of the beef - because it was so good!
Superb cuisine at reasonable prices.
Wine match choices both respected Niagara and were excellent.
The room is well laid out for intimacy but has enough buzz to have an intimate conversation.
Room colours not to my liking but that is the only drawback.
We will return
This was a special birthday celebration and it was perfect.
A gem in Niagara. Great fine dining experience.
Very impressed with the atmosphere and most of all the food. Anniversary diner was a success with the hit of the night being the Pork Belly. Highly recommend getting that as well as whatever the server recommends. Fallen, our server was extremely kind and a joy to have everytime she came to the table.
Absolutely wonderful food, ambiance, and service. A+
Was a little surprised with the fries side with the flank steak, not disappointed but could’ve been something a little more appealing!
Bisque was amazing, absolutely incredible as well with the scallops!
Dessert was incredible as well! Great job to the chef and the staff for an amazing experience!
We are from Montreal, a city that offers exceptional restaurants. This restaurant was top! Service was excellent and fast. Food was just delicious, original dishes with fresh produce. The octopus was the best I have ever had. Worth the money and time to go and enjoy.
It doesn't get better than this, absolutely amazing food and fantastic service by our server "Fallon".
We will definitely be back for more of what this fantastic restaurant has to offer!
Best restaurant experience from beginning to end!
The restaurant is OUTRAGEOUSLY overpriced! In Ottawa or Montreal for the same type of run-of-the-mill "fine dining experience", you would pay 50% of the price, but this is Niagara Falls and everything has a premium. The portions were very small and we left hungry. Also, there was a mark up on the only hors d'oeuvres and deserts worth ordering... Frankly, not worth it. We had much more fund and food at Skylon Tower, and while the food was much less sophisticated, the experience was unique! Save your money and skip AG!
AG, the restaurant on site of The Sterling Inn, is first class!!!!!! Such quality food, perfect serving sizes, and great options from a pre-fixe menu at $75 Canadian dollars per person. Stephan seated me while my husband was delayed a bit, and he made a beautiful glass of Cab Franc appear before me as quickly as I needed it! The two of us enjoyed appetizers of the prosciutto salad and the grilled octopus, entrees of the AG tenderloin and seared scallops, and desserts of pumpkin creme brulee and lemon lavender cake. The octopus was thick and tender with perfect grill marks, adding a lovely light char taste. The tenderloin was cooked perfectly as were the scallops. The lemon lavender cake is something I would never have thought I would enjoy, but MAN, it was so light in flavor, dense in texture, and very very moist. My husband enjoyed the creme brulee as well. This is a farm-to-table restaurant with a chef who has been there 15 years. GO to AG! Thank me later : )
Amazing!!! Will be back!!
Food was amazing, service was great. Overall 10/0 experience.
Their farm to table approach is excellent! All our course were delicious. Service was also amazing, Melanie was very knowledgeable with both the food and wines, extremely good at what she does! We will be back.
The bread was stale..felt like was made weeks ago. Otherwise it was good
