Great experience. Outstanding service. Food was delicious and portions quite large.
Had a fantastic meal (sirloin strip steak with an amazing peppercorn sauce).
Great assortment of cocktails to start of the meal. Will definitely come again.
Great restaurant! Food was really delicious ,top quality. Everyone was very personable great service. Would highly recommend this cool little restaurant!
Drove in from Toronto and the experience was definitely worth it. The staff were friendly and engaging, the food was amazing, and the setting was very nice.
Excellent food. Great service. COVID protocols adhered to. Felt safe.
Excellent food and good service.
Lamb was cooked to perfection. Pork chops were fabulous!
Good restaurant with above average food. Not outstanding but very good.
Amazing food and one of the sweetest servers we’ve ever had.
Great service , delicious food made with love, generous portions
We enjoyed our time however we were seated near the door it was quite chilly.
I would highly recommend The Epicurean because of the friendly, welcoming staff, the wonderful, bright dining room and the excellent quality of the meals. It’s now our go to restaurant when we visit Niagara-on-the-Lake!
My wife and I have visited Niagara-on-the-Lake many times in the past, but this was our first time dinning at the Epicurean. It was a week night for dinner to celebrate my wife’s birthday and the establishment did not disappoint! Our waiter took excellent care of us from start to finish, even offering to take pictures during the evening. The menu is comprehensive and so too is the wine list. You have to try the lamb, it is excellent! It was a very enjoyable experience and I would expect that we will be going back this summer.
Very good service. Good food. Overall a very pleasant experience. We would go back.
Delicious lunch with quick and friendly service. We will come back
It was our first time returning to the Shaw Festival Theatre in two years so we wanted a lovely place to dine afterwards. The restaurant has a very warm ambiance. Staff are very welcoming and attentive. Food is excellent!
We always make sure to visit the Epicurian whenever we're in NOTL. Great food and the service is always excellant. A wonderful spot for a perfect meal.
My wife and I visited in Winter. NOTL was lovely and decorated.
I loved this place. Every staff was friendly and knew what they were talking about. Service was remarkable.
Porkchop was so good.
We will return.
The food was outstanding. Our server was very good. Will definitely be back again!!
We enjoyed a lovely evening out at the Epicurean. We found the staff to be warm and friendly. They would check in with us and were very attentive. The food arrived hot and obviously had just been plated before being brought out to us. The only down side was we were right next to the door on a cold night, but that would not be a concern for most people dining there. We would definitely eat there again.
We had an excellent experience and will be happy to return.
The food was hot, flavourful and the best I've had in a while.
Service was courteous and prompt, the restaurant was warm and inviting and the cost was where I expected it too be. Given the food quality and service level, the cost was quite fair.
Everything was delightful! The food, the service, the ambiance... All make me want to go back soon.
Great service! Very friendly staff. Food was delicious. Love going there any time of the year Highly recommend this restaurant 👍
Nice location with friendly staff. Downfall is very average food a real dussapointment
I would highly recommend this restaurant. We went with another couple and we all agreed that the food, service, and total experience was excellent. We will definitely go again!
This establishment is a hidden gem.
The food is amazing. The penne arrabiata is to die for. Atmosphere is nice Phillip our server was excellent
Very friendly and courteous servers and the food preparation and presentation is excellent! Best ribs and pasta bolognese I’ve ever had.
Our experience at the Epicurean was okay; there was nothing wrong, but also nothing outstanding. The food was good, the service was friendly, the atmosphere was fine but nothing special. I found the prices to be a bit on the high side for the overall experience.
I wouldn’t say don’t go, but if you are looking for something special or different, this isn’t it.
Horrible service. Waitress was very rude. Once she realized we wouldn’t have a huge bill as we don’t drink alcohol, she stopped acknowledging us. Didn’t say two words to us all night. Tossed the cheque on the table at the end of the meal and walked away.
A warm, cozy place to have lunch with a friend in NOTL. Service was quite attentive and the roasted veggie panini with fries and salad were very good.
The food was quite good. We did have to wait a decent amount of time for our food and then felt a little rushed at the end as our 1.5 hour time slot was almost over. We did show up on time for our reservation. One of our group had a food allergy that wasn’t handled well by the kitchen unfortunately.
Food— Amazing! Food was perfectly made, presentation was great. Price was ok point for quality.
Service - TERRIBLE! If it wasn’t for the food I would give 0 stars. First they had 2 teenage girls who were a bit too immature to be at the hostesses. I could go into more detail but honestly, they’re kids and I don’t want to bash kids.
Second they sat us by the washroom….no one wants to smell the washroom while eating. They did have other spots. Yes I know social distancing makes it more difficult, BUT there were more tables. We did end up getting a spot, obviously.
Third, the part that is unacceptable, when I asked to move tables they were so rude!! I was even told “do you want to just go somewhere else?” Who says that?!? She seemed to be a manager maybe, no name tag so not sure. But she was EXTREMELY condescending.
BTW : This was a a reservation, not a walk in, and it was our wedding anniversary dinner.
So yes the food is really good, our actual server was very nice. But the other people I interacted with were off putting.
So no I won’t be going back or recommend it.
Good food, nice ambience – have been here before in the summer time and always enjoyed the garden patio.
Great food and service! Exceptional pasta!!
If the lights were dimmer the atmosphere would have been better.
The food and service were good.The ambience was O.K.The printed menu was stained from previous use to the point that I moved it around with my serviette.It was Sunday night and very quiet which made it good and bad.Not their fault.I think you need a little buzz going on around you.
Always a fantastic experience. Never disappointed.
The location is what allows The Epicurean to charge the prices they do. The service was poor, we sat at the bar and the bartender was friendly, but didn’t know what he was doing and forgot a number of items. When the food came, it was hit, but that’s about it. My wife had the pasta, and for the price it needed a lot of works. I had the 10oz steak, which at best was maybe pushing 6oz; I’d have no issue if the quality and flavour was there. However, the steak had a lot of silver skin and little seasoning, the peppercorn sauce had no peppercorns and was thick like glue.
Great service with timely delivery of delicious food food . Would recommend !
Amazing food. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend. We will be coming back!
