Good food. Extremely friendly and personal service from Rosemary.
Food was delicious and the service was great!
Food selection was very limited, menus were grubby, service hohum. Not the experience we were used to based on previous visits.
Service was very good.
The Patio dining area was very nice and is a recommended option.
However the food was below what one would expect. The pasta was overcooked and parts of it were not warm.
I found it also too expensive for the food they presented.
Great wine list and menu variety
Great garden patio as well
This is a very nice large patio that is nicely landscaped with trees for shade and a great selection of plants for all seasons. The menu is very adequate for most tastes. The staff were welcoming and attentive. We will eat there again on our next visit to Niagara on the Lake
Food was very average but the service made up for it somewhat. Nice server, average food
Will not go again. Don’t waste your time. Horrible server ruined our night out. She was rude, short and have no knowledge of the menu or wine. I advised I had an allergy which she kept forgetting. Also my main arrived covered in cheese which I’m allergic too. We had dirty plates and glasses on our table almost the whole meal. Lamb was chewy fatty and not worth $55. Crab cakes were good. If you don’t like serving just quit. This horrible service makes this a skip for us. Spend your money elsewhere.
Andrea our server was excellent! She was attentive but overly. Suggested wine pairing with our food choice. The meal was fabulous. I would definitely go there again when back in NOTL and would recommend to others.
This was our second restaurant in NOTL and was so ever disappointed. The food was well overpriced for what it was. We ordered wraps, and sandwiches for lunch. The wraps were dry and the sandwiches lacked flavour. The dressing for the salad was utterly too sweet and drenched the dishes. The service was slow and no one checked up on us or bothered to fill our water glasses. The order station was right behind our booth and we can hear the hostesses and servers chatting but they didn't bother to actually serve us. I wouldn't recommend this place for the food or service.
Wonderful service and great food!!
Nice garden patio, good food and impeccable service.
Nice restaurant. Service was great, food was delicious . And much better value then another restaurant we attended.we preferred this restaurant to others we had visited.
It was very hot inside. The air was on the the front doors were open. Food was excellent. It would be nice to have something to cover your wine as there were so many fruit flies I had to keep fighting them off Maybe a coaster
Or cocktail napkin?
Music too loud
Lovely place, warm and inviting. Two large TVs in dining room allowed us to keep up with Olympic news while we ate. Crab cakes were wonderful.
Food was mediocre. Calamari were over cooked and bruschetta was soggy.
Patio was great, nice atmosphere. Food… ehh.. overpriced. French onion soup was decent nothing to write home about. The Roast Beef panini was flat, lacking flavour - for $24
PS - Open table has an old menu on file. We booked based on it but there is a new more narrow menu and 20-30% higher prices
Service was great everyone was very nice and attentive. Food was good but a little pricey for what it was (we got both pastas, nothing too special), I suppose that’s pricing for NOTL. Overall a cute spot to celebrate a special occasion.
We had a nice early dinner at the Epicrean, the place is beautiful! The food was good!! It’s a great option when in NOTL… Lunch and dinner ambiance is different.
The waiter was very friendly and accommodating. We ordered salads and they were delicious. This place is definitely a great spot for every day dining.
Also the crab cakes were divine.
Limited parking in the back. When approaching the hostess stand was asked rudely “where did you park? Did you park in the back?” That’s for reservations only.” A better introduction would have been “welcome, do you have a reservation?” Especially since we had a reservation. Off putting and will not return based on that introduction. Also saw another waitress telling a few gentlemen that they had to order more than a few drinks to keep a table. Was not aware there were table minimums in Niagara on the lake for restaurant patios that are literally in an alleyway. One positive note, Our server was really good. Food was ok. Calamari was mostly batter and had an off taste. Margarita glass was visibly chipped. Would not recommend from the moment we arrived. Not a great lunch for $300 for 4 guests.
Unfortunately we were a few minutes late but the hostess was very friendly and seated us promptly. Our server was very nice and helpful.
Great food and service. Patio looks really nice but it was rainy so we ate inside which was nice too.
The Epicurean was delicious. Service was great and very covid safe. Would def recommend for a stop in Niagara
It was a fantastic place to celebrate our engagement. They have a really nice patio spot.. it feels like you're in a garden. The food was great and we will definitely be returning.
We had cocktails and they were delicious. I love their white sangria it’s so delicious. My husband had a beer. We will be back again.
It was a good day for patio dining. We arrived at the restaurant and were seated. For 25 minutes no one approached us again. No offer of drinks or a reassurance we would be served soon. Eventually we simply had to leave. The menu was quite poor as well. Limited choices and the mains were mostly sandwiches. We visit the area often but will not visit here again. We tried the Greek restaurant just a bit over and the service was excellent and the food was perfect. They salvaged the day.
Always a delicious meal. The outdoor patio is extensive and a large portion is covered. Some chairs are white plastic outdoor chairs (not the most comfortable). The staff are always friendly and the owner is always on hand to ensure everyone is enjoying their meal.
Friendly service with great staff. I've come here twice now while on the lake, and the food quality has been consistent both times.
The back patio is a great spot, it's not too loud even with a bunch of other tables around, it's well spaced for COVID rules and nicely shaded by a large tree in the middle. Location is right in the center of the main street, and the back patio lets you get away from the crowds and people for a while.
The server makes a huge difference in customer experience!! Our server exceeded the level of service that we had expected: 1) I had made a request for our table and my sister's table to be located near each other, and they went beyond by putting the tables together when we got there; 2) my dad wanted a certain dish and she had made it possible that the kitchen make the dish that he requested! ; 3) she was personable and made just the right amount of effort to converse with us. She absolutely made the experience enjoyable by setting the right mood and tone. Well done!!
Very good service and food!
There are 2 patio locations…out front and also in the back surrounding a huge tree. The food is excellent and I highly recommend the ribs!!
Beautiful patio tugged away from the busy Main Street traffic. Great service and food. Really enjoyed my time there with my husband for his birthday. If you are looking for a beautiful place for a quiet conversation over a glass of wine and nice food - Highly recommend
Food was horrible. Service started out good. Took two hours to get our meal.
Yummy food and good service! Nice little location behind the busyness of the main street of NOTL.
Food was good, our server was good but could be a bit more attentive. Lots of families and children which caused a bit of noise but overall a decent experience.
Our server was attentive. The food came out quickly end was tasty.
We enjoyed our patio lunch during our 32 anniversary weekend. The natural patio with a large tree in the centre is so beautiful. We received great service. The food was good but menu limited due to Covid. We will go back again. Don’t be fooled by the little patio at the front which is great for people watching but it’s the back that worked well for us. We felt like we were at a personal large patio. You have to experience it for yourself.
