The food was great. Chef was fantastic. Our waitress (Sasha) was wonderful. Only recommendation would be is that they had carts with all of the dirty dishes that they would roll by the waiting line for tables. Would suggest that they cover them up. The view of the Falls was awesome and everything was perfect!

The amount of food for the price was shocking. But then again, it is located in a Sheraton Hotel so they will charge more.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Absolutely unacceptable service. From the beginning, they gave away my reservation, and I had to settle for a smaller table. After we ordered, it took over one hour and a half for the food that never arrived. When I asked the waiter about our food, he kept on saying it was on its way, but that moment never came. Eventually, I ordered the bill with just the appetizer and water we had ordered.

Absolutely atrocious restaurant and overpriced for the food. The calamari was bland and overpriced and the main courses never came. This restaurant is not befitting of even one star quality. Would not recommend this to anyone.

Combined the Buffet and Massimo's (Previously Jamie Kennedy's) so you are in a private smaller area than the buffet separated by a curtain. Tried to make it intimate. Window seating is recommended however, every able has a view of the American or Niagara Falls. Food is much better at Massimo's in the Sheraton than the other hotel. So if you haven't been back since, give it a try. Staff is very friendly, however pretty rigid on their menu. Suggest you review their menu online prior to booking to ensure you see something you like. Otherwise, you may have to compromise and at those prices you want what you want. Iwould recommend and return next time back in the falls.

Lovely attentive staff and the food is good. Appetizer was great - we had the brushcetta and calamari. Pasta was great. Lamb could have been better. Dessert was phenomenal.

You come here for the view and it's beautiful. Overlooking the falls, you can seeboth American and horseshoe falls. The fireworks at ten looked gorgeous as well.

I'd go again, but I'd stick with the pasta.

The wait for dinner after ordering was well over an hour, the beef medallion and veggies was very however the gnocchi was just ok. Very pricey for what we got. The waitress was very nice, however, I believe the kitchen slowed her down. When asked about time she offered to bring bread, which we accepted. While the charge was nominal, I would not expect a fine restaurant to ask you to wait then not provide complimentary bread. Room for improvement.

We had a lovely dinner. I requested a window table for a special occasion in my reservation and we were seated in a great spot. The carbonara and gnocchi were awesome. The rigatoni was excellent. The focaccia and calamari were also great.

Food and service were on par with the view. Unfortunately the price was also as breathtaking as the view.

Even though I knew it going in, still added up very quickly to an amount that questions the value of the experience.

My second third visit and the food was not what I was use to. The starter was excellent but my main and desert were sub par. I asked for my meat dish to be medium rare but it was over cooked and over salted.
The desert sounded great but it lacked
Not sure I would re visit. Just hope my clients enjoyed it more than me.

It was very crowded and noisy for our 845 reservation. Service from our waitress was very good. Food quality was below average considering the prices were far above average. Our order of plain garlic bread priced out at 18 dollars before tax. It looked like my rigatoni was under a heat lamp before it was brought out. The pasta was under cooked and tough to chew on all three dishes ordered at our table. Also found it extremely dark at the table and my wife used her phone flashlight to read the menu. I was expecting a little better than this from a well known chef. I give it a somewhat generous 3 stars.

Our waiter was fine, nothing good or bad, but the food was the worst part of this experience. The rigatoni was very hard, and the gnocchi was too mushy and stringy. Even if the pasta had been cooked correctly, the sauces were not very good. Even the bread wasn't great. Pretty basic and bland with no olive oil offered to dip it in. While everything in Niagara Falls is more expensive because it's touristy, the poor food did not merit the high prices. Too bad because it's a really nice view from the restaurant.

The portions weren’t relative to the price we paid. Appetizers were very good but the main course was lacking in flavour. We found it very expensive for the amount of food we had and would have paid a lot less back home for more food.
Great view of the falls but disappointed about leaving with a 300$ for 3 adults and 1 child.

The restaurant is hyped as THE restaurant in Niagara Falls (Whig isn’t too hard unless you love fried food) but the service was lacking, they were out of the one item I wanted and the furnishings look like they are 10 years past due for replacement. The view is great - the three bachelorette parties were hugely annoying and the “who cares” attitude of our server was inexcusable. They even screwed up a martini (it tasted like it was vodka and 3 tablespoons of salt with a few gross jarred olives thrown in to add to the already too saltiness.

Go for a drink and to see the Falls and save your money and skip the food. Masimo may want to stop by by and check out this disappointing eatery.

Disappointing meal for 3 out of 4 of us. (Husband loved his seafood linguine). Carbonara was overpowered by the double smoked bacon, bolognese was overpowered by oregano and the gnocchi, which had a really tasty sauce, was so over cooked that a lot of it was unrecognisable as gnocchi. Nice server. Nice wine. Very expensive

Went out of my way to visit due to the reviews on trip advisor relaying that they had vegan options. Aside from bread and water, this is not true. However, the kitchen was able to accommodate and create a olive oil garlic pasta. Would be great to see some vegan options pop up here, perhaps the ravioli without cheese? (It sounded delicious!)

We dined here on a Friday evening for my daughters 17th birthday. The best thing about the restaurant was the view. The falls are spectacular. The food was good but the portions were very small. My husband and I ordered iced tea which was in a 8oz glass and never refilled for almost $4 a glass. The early dining special was a good value but our portions were smaller than our sons kids meal. The menu is also very limited. We would probably choose the buffet if we ate at the Sheraton again.

L’accueil courtois, nous étions à l'avance, on nous a trouvé une place au bar pour prendre un apéro dans l'attente de notre table. J'avais demandé une table près de la fenêtre pour voir les feux d'artifice et on nous a installé de magnifique façon. Le service a été fantastique avec de bons conseils ainsi qu'une attention soutenue. La nourriture était excellente, le prix un peu élevé, mais on paye pour la fenêtre et la vue des feux.

Je recommande...

Our dinner at Massimo's was incredible! The food was wonderful, the service incredible, and the view spectacular! Not a cheap night out, but definitely worth the money. My only criticism is that for a higher end Italian restaurant, they can't make cappuccinos or lattes - they have an espresso machine, but no milk steamer ... a bit of a damper, but still worth the visit.

I went on a date here and it was fantastic! The server was so nice and the view was unbeatable. It is expensive, but well worth it for us. If you’re looking for a classy place to have a romantic dinner, then I would certainly recommend this restaurant. Side note about the parking situation - it is very difficult to find parking near this hotel (Sheraton). I recommend taking an Uber here or walking if you are staying elsewhere.

This man should be stripped of his restaurant. We paid $200 and received pasta in three minutes clearly meaning it was scooped from The buffet. You can’t make carbonara in two minutes. It had chunks of cheap undercooked bacon in it and my husbands rigatoni was chef boyardi. We only ate it because we were starving after a day of driving across the country. The garlic bread price was offensive. The entire experience was offensive. I’m certain any Italian chef who came into this place would try to beat up this chef. Also he looks like a villain in a Disney movie. Hands down the poorest dining experience ever. Don’t rip off people with greed just because you’re in a good location. Attempt a human meal. Have some pride in your food

This was a great choice for dinner! I reserved through Open Table, explained that we were celebrating our anniversary and requested a window table. Wow! What a view. We booked at 8pm so that we got to see the falls lit up at night. Our server even encouraged us to stay at the table to watch the fireworks after we finished dessert. As far as the meal, we ordered a bottle of wine, then had the calamari, the Caprese salad (amazing), the shrimp fettucine and tiramisu. There is an extensive wine list featuring local wines as well as some Italian and West Coast, US wines. We were so pleasantly surprised at the quality of everything at this restaurant, in a town full of chain restaurants aimed at families. There were some families dining there at 8pm, but it was quiet. A great experience.
