I will admit the food was very good and so were the drinks, but the ambiance is a bit questionable if you are looking for a fancy fine dining experience. This restaurant is poorly located and when you enter from the building, they could do a lottttt better a job making you feel like you are entering a special restaurant. We had to wait 5-10 minutes for our table to be prepared, no one offered us a drink either while we were sitting at a high top waiting. We didn't get our first drink for about 20-25 min after arrival, this could've improved things greatly too.

Our friends ended up joining us for last minute dinner plans and AG was extremely accommodating.
The mussels were the most delicious I believe I’ve ever had - including out east. And the almond and Brie crusted tenderloin was to die for.
Our friends and my husband thoroughly enjoyed their flank stank - Chimichurri was so tasty.
But none of us can rave more about her the desserts - the creme brûlée was our friends favourite. And my husband and we’re obsessed with gelato. We would 100% come again when we are back in the Niagara area. Thank you so much !

This was a fabulous choice for dinner! The three course dinner menu had lots of great choices. Loved the charcuterie for an appetizer. My wife chose the salmon and I had the scallops. Both were excellent. Service was excellent. Only negative is location - basement of Sterling Inn. Not the greatest for ambiance. But food and service made it a great choice.

We love AG, ever since our first visit 10 years ago. The food is outstanding, we have never once been disappointed. Being our first restaurant outing since Co-Vid, AG certainly went above & beyond. From our favourite menu items to the most delicious bottle of local Niagara wine, we had the best date night. Our server, Fallon, was incredible and made the whole experience worth the wait.

Truly amazing fresh and thoughtfully crafted meal. My husband and I spent the week in Niagra Falls for my birthday, and were looking for someplace nice to eat that wasn't the tourist trap fare normally found near the falls. AG really fit the bill. The ambiance was romantic and classy. The prix fixe menu had lots of tasty sounding options, and we were pleased with all of our dishes.

The ambiance and service is definitely amazing. I love how knowledgeable the waiters/waitresses are about the food and take the time to explain to you. The food was good but I expected it to be much more flavourful than it was..We had the signature AG dish and lamb.. The desserts are very tasty..The place is worth a try..

Excellent meal! We have been to Niagara Falls many times and never been to this gem. Inside the Sterling Inn and Spa, this restaurant has grwst ambiance, knowledgeable wait staff and incredible food. Farm to table but not too crazy out there with choices. From appetizer to dessert every bite was delectable. Excellent, low key live music. Will definitely go back.

A bit of a hidden gem, because it's in the basement of the Sterling Inn. The food is excellent and shows creativity. Ontario VQA wines are the focus of the wine list, as they should be for a place in Niagara. Service is smooth and knowledgeable.

About the only knock on the restaurant is that it feels a bit cold. The lights are bright and the interior is stark.

The restaurant was nice, pretty setting and decor had the fix prix meal first course was the chucuterie board was nothing like expected it was presented horribly and the combinations were simply not good. My boyfriend had a salad presented sloppy leaves hanging over the plate and pretty plain. A women beside us ordered the same salad and hers was loaded with toppings. Ordered a long island in which the server wasnt sure if they had all the mixes brought me a “long island” just full of lime juice and charged $16 for.. my boyfriends drinks were all watered down. My main course was the pork tenderloin it was so delicious cooked perfectly. My boyfriend had the lamb it was very chewy no flavour. Our server and the hospitality we received was not good we were there almost 3 hours the pauses in between meals were far to long nothing was really explained to us and no friendly conversation like the other tables were getting. Not once was our water glasses refilled until she had to-be asked to after waiting for over an hour with an empty glass. Our server overall wasn't very friendly yet would spend 20 minutes on end talking to other tables while we patiently waited for some service. We were celebrating anniversary and valentines so the service really spoiled our time. I would not recommend alcoholic beverages here unless your simply getting wine. It was an experience for sure a bit over priced but we would recommend just for others to try for themselves.

I went on Valentine's Day as a special date with my fiancee. I must say to start the food was delicious. The environment was amazing and the food was delicious!!! (Had to say it twice) the the staff was attentive and nice and welcoming. It was a packed house so it was a bit loud in there and the space is much smaller than I thought since it was the first time I had been. Besides that it was a great experience and wonderful menu and me and my fiancee will be back for a normal dinner service as they had a special menu for Valentine's Day. I love that it was farm to table and I love the portion size. It was a great experience.

This was one of the best meals I've ever had. Luckily our other dinner plans fell through found this restaurant kind of by accident and SO happy we did. All the plates we had were perfectly cooked and seasoned. Our server was delightful and very helpful! Definitely will be back next time we are in the falls. I would call this the perfect hidden gem.

Walking in the door and being led to our table was lovely. Beautiful space and a sexy energy. There was only 1 plant based meal option and no plant based starters or desserts. We modified our salads to eliminate the dairy and all were still delicious. Just make a plant based starter :( Our dinner was delicious but our brussel sprout side dish was the $10 star of the whole night. Absolutely perfect. If I had a plate of them with the baba ghanoush, it would have been enough. It was lovely...slow and lovely. Will definitely go back....just might go for a glass of wine and brussel sprouts!
