    Food was excellent - very tasty. Service was slow - seemed disorganized. We sat without being offered a drink for at least 15 minutes. Wine was eventually brought over, but not by our server? We were told food would be coming out ‘soon’, but both appetizers and main course took took a long time to appear. Not sure if the problem was a short-staffed kitchen? We were at a wine tasting event here, months ago, where the service was equally problematic.

    My last review of this restaurant was not a very good one, but this one will make up for it. Our table was ready for us on arrival and I soon had a large glass of Italian Pinot Grigio in my hand. I ordered two servings of an appetizer, instead of a starter and a main. That made for a lot of mussels and chorizo, and every single one was a delight. The service was truly excellent. I will be going back!

    Excellent food, prompt service, lovely surroundings; price on par with other fine dining establishments in the city. The only caveat is that there is little local wine in the wine list; some Niagara offerings would pair better than the California imports.

    We enjoyed the pleasant ambience, although we found the music rather loud. The food was very good, but servings were very large. Most of us left almost half of our meal. We hate to see so much food wasted, and would appreciate a smaller serving for less price. Our waiter was excellent bot we waited a very long time for our food. We arrived at 12:00 and weren't served till after 1:15.

    The baked Alaska was good. Continental breakfast was nothing special. The service is not knowledgeable about the menu or the history of the locale; overall blase and a bit uncouth.

    Unfortunately our dining experience was not positive. We sat an hour before even being served bread. Not an ideal situation when you are accompanied by two children aged five and seven! The children’s cheese and crackers served was smoked cheddar and carmelized onion, not a thought through children’s cheese selection from the kitchen. The food when it finally arrived was delicious and the manager was most apologetic with a reduced bill. But by now the children had fallen asleep. Dinners were boxed up for a sad trip home. The evening was a disappointing Birthday family dining celebration for all six members!

    Our food was outstanding. The server was extremely rude. We asked to move tables because of the entertainment. She gave us a difficult time about changing tables and there were only 2 other tables in the restaurant at the time. When we actually moved tables, she TOLD us to bring our menus and waters to the new table rather than asking a bus person to do that . She did not tell us the features of the evening, the vegetables she mentioned were included in our food was not what we received. We did not finish our wine because we did not like the Merlot we had chosen, she did not inquire as to why we didn’t finish our wine or offer us another selection. We were married at the Windermere and celebrate our anniversary annually there. We will continue to come because the food is outstanding but will request to never be served by Katherine G again.

    Our lunch was most disappointing. The Service was slow. My meal Fish and Chips was almost uneatable, the 'Chips' were SOGGY and lukewarm, the fish batter was a lightly breaded apology for BEER BATTER ! My colleague ordered a Salad , the Bill, with Tip was Fifty Dollars. Utterly and Completely Exorbitant. We will not be returning or recommending this establishment.

    Had been once before and everything was fantastic. Brought a different friend on my second visit raving about it only to be let down and leaving them questioning why I loved it so much. Seemed it was a miscommunication between staff as to why were ignored for almost 20 minutes before even taking our drinks order. Once we were served the food was great and they seemed extra attentive. No attempt at making it right was made, no discount, no anything really other than a quick explanation and a sorry. Had I not had an awesome experience the first time I would have upped and left though. Debatable if I'll return.

    We both enjoyed our lunches, mine was quiche and salad and my friend had the perch and salad. Our server was great and very attentive. My friend is hard of hearing and she had much difficulty hearing me across the table once the room began to fill up with patrons. I would suggest tablecloths or something on the walls to deaden the sound as there are all hard surfaces in the restaurant except for the napkins. Will certainly go back.
