One of the elevators was broken down the whole weekend. Then on Sunday checkout the other two elevators started to have difficulties. We had to take the stairs from the 9th floor down to the lobby. Valet parking is a tad expensive and the hotel taxes are a bit extreme. We ate at Massimos. Service was excellent! Matt is a terrific server and a great soul. Our main dish was the lamb shank. It was just ok for us. We thought it needed a little salt to balance the sweet of the berry compote. Otherwise the wine, appetizers and dessert were terrific.

This has been the first time to Massimo's Restaurant, and I made the reservation to celebrate our first anniversary, 250 km away from home.
The waiter was very attentive, even bringing us 2 glasses of champagne for the occasion, I suppose complimentary, but hard to say going by the bill for the fare. The food was ok, but nothing outstanding and lacking some taste, especially the Caesar salad.
We had the lamb shank, and Sicilian chicken. The chicken was ok, but the trimmings nothing to rave about.
The lighting by the (bare and pub style) window-table leaves a LOT to be desired, perhaps on purpose to make it difficult to read the prices of the menu. At first we were just given a QR code to scan with our phones in the dark, in order to see the menu (??). But after asking for it, a printed (simple xerox paper print out) menu was available rather then a proper menu folder as expected from an up-scale restaurant. So do not forget your scanning device unless you don't mind looking 'outdated'.
Having chosen a different but popular (European) restaurant the next day, outside Niagara Falls, it could not have been any better, the food not any tastier, and all … for half the price, with a scrumptious dessert and coffee included, just minus the very overpriced view.

Fabulous dinner & with a wonderful view of the falls & Christmas lights. What really made the night was Rowan our waiter/server ( although he is much more than that) He greeted us, took time for conversation, explained the menu, gave recommendations & was always checking in on us during the dinner.

absolutely perfect. Great view of Niagara Falls and city. Peach Bellini was outstanding! Appetizers were perfect, calamari was crunchy and the dipping sauce favourful and creamy! The mains were out of this world delicious, shrimp linguine with a saffron cream sauce and the rib-eye was cooked to perfection. Rowen our server was the very best! Pleasant , helpful , funny and professional. We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate!

The table beside us had a kid on there phone playing games very loud
It would be nice not to here that noise when trying to enjoy a dinner with amazing views
The parents should invest in a head set as it is very disrespectful to other around

Our server was pleasant, Maitre d' was less professional, seemed irritable, we paid $300 including 20% tip for dinner for 2 including one bottle of ordinary wine ($21@LCBO), food was ok but nothing memorable. So inspite of great view, badly overpriced in my view

It was my birthday and we did tell them that but nothing was done to make it special. Our server was great though. Food was good but extremely over priced. I guess you pay for the view. We won’t be going back anytime soon.

Very disappointed, I was thinking it’s on upscale restaurant, but
almost like a buffet type of food!
Had a cheese tortellini, the plating was very poor and the food
was cold !
Day before I had dinner at the Fallsview casino Club 21 , that
was fantastic!

We had a window seat with a great view of the falls, food was very good and the pasta was served hot. Our server Ronan was fantastic, he recommended the entrees we had actually chosen, was knowledgeable on the wine selection, and provided pleasant service with just the right amount of attention, not interrupting our date but making sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely recommend Massimo’s. Unfortunately we didn’t take any photos to share.

Disappointing, except for the view of the falls and winter lights, which is fabulous. Unless you are too tired to venture away from the hotel/casino, skip it. I am being harsh as this was only our second meal out since the start of the pandemic and we had high expectations for the food based on meals at the original Mistura and Sopra back in their heyday. An appetier, two pasta dishes, 1 dessert and 4 glasses of wine set us back $200 with tax and tip. While there were glimmers of greatness lost in bad execution, it seems Massimo's reputation is on the rocks with that barge up the Niagara River. We started with a plate of calamari that had had a hard life manifesting themselves into tough rubber bands covered in limp under seasoned batter without enough sauce for the plate. The replacement plate was hardly better. The service was friendly and attentive at the start but got lost as the room grew busy. The bread was very good. The wines actually reasonably priced although the recommended pairings did not work especially the pinot with the tortellini - the Organized Crime pinot was to austere to mate with the slightly sweet dish, the Bachelder Chard actually worked better being a richer wine. The two pasta dishes were each quite tasty but each suffered a major fault. The Primavera's pasta lacked integrity and disintigrated making the dish seem mushy while the cheese tortellini were hard lumps devoid of any cheese flavour. The tiramissou was light and delicious albeit lacking in any essence of coffee. To add insult to injury, we were over charged which is magnified by the nearly 8% desination tax in addition HST and tip. Massimo, get thee to the Falls and fix this!

Hostess had no idea it was our anniversary dinner and didn't seem to care when we informed her, dinning room was very noisy, our waiter was exceptional and apologized quite a few times. Food was unapologetically bad. Pasta, not house made for $30 a plate was terribly overcooked, sauces were bland, calamari were like fried rubber bands, brushetta was the only star of the evening. Front of the house was on point, back of the house brought shame to Chef Capra's creations. Felt more like a higher end fast food establishment than a fine dinning restaurant. Unfortunate evening compensated by complimentary ice wine from our server. We did go elsewhere after our evening's dissapointment for something to eat.
