The view is outstanding! Food is average..... I would do it just for the view. Our salad was soaked in dressing and some brown pieces. It wasn’t fresh. My salmon was good. My husband had chicken cordon bleu. Average... the potatoes were hard as a rock. They gave us a big piece of cheese cake since we were celebrating our anniversary. That was excellent! The food overall is just average at best! U go for the ambiance and view, period. Go for the early seating. A little cheaper. It’s expensive!

Stunning view of the Falls from revolving restaurant. Food ok for price but the view is the attraction.

Skylon was a great atmosphere as one would imagine with awesome views of the Falls and countryside. The wait staff was impeccable and most pleasant. The food was outstanding. We two had prime rib and the roast chicken. Both were so tender one could cut with fork. The chicken was by far the most tender and exceptionally flavorful I’ve ever had. We finished off with creme brûlée and Italian coffee both being excellent!

We went here for a very special Anniversary. The service was very good with amazing views however the food quality was sub par. - something you would expect from a casual dining establishment. We have donned at many very high end restaurants and were very disappointed for our Anniversary dinner. We have visited Niagra Falls several times however I don’t think we will be dining at the skylon again. They really need to improve their food quality rather than just relying on the view to bring guests in.

Food is awful. There is no ice cream, yogurt. Also, only one instant bread is available. Varieties of food is very limited. I have never met this kind of buffet in the world even price is high. My kids & wife are very depressed. Coffee & tea is avaiable on the request. Never visit again.

Pricey. Rushed. Touristy—Caters to bus groups. Guest at nearby table cackled throughout dinner, bossing guests at another table for photos.

It was our 50th anniversary and quite an experience. Everything was wonderful. They had escargot which I hadn't had in years and was delicious. Knowing that it was a little pricey before I went, meant no surprise. Thank you Skylon Tower for a spectacular evening!!

The view, of course, is the main reason to dine here. The food is ok, although my husband had some stomach troubles after his meal. Mine was ok; the rice was very salty. Charging for a refill on a soda is very chintzy. Our waiter was nice. Don't like the tableside credit card payment.

The food is excellent and worth the price. The view of the falls and city is spectacular. The only downside is suffer with motion sickness. It can be a little much with the floor turning.

The view is spectacular! When we arrived, I was a bit disappointed that we didn't have a window table which I requested in my reservation. I was told that would be a 30 minute wait. We had a booth just aside from the window which was elevated and very comfortable and we could still see the falls.

Two of us ordered dirty martinis that were not dirty, but the server made up for it by bringing a flask of olive juice with extra olives to our table. The food was delicious - among the 4 of us were two filets, one prime rib and one salmon - all very good. The server convinced us to order the pecan praline cheesecake, and we were very glad we did - it was fabulous. Overall, it was a very good meal and lovely atmosphere.

I would recommend. But do NOT get the veal. It was horrible. But the filet was awesome. View was spectacular. Service was doting to begin with, and awful at the end. Probably just trying to get you out for the next seating....overpriced, but again, worth the view.

I liked it and would go back but it is VERY pricey (which I knew ahead so was not surprised). There was a long hair on the outside of my glass when my drink was set down in front of me and I noticed right away and said something so it was taken away and another drink (at least I presume another drink) was brought to me. Two small roasted potatoes were served with my prime rib. One was not fully cooked.

They certainly try to cram as many people in this restaurant as a they possibly can. We sat at a very small table for two (the smallest table I have ever sat at for two people) and the next table was so close that the back of the person’s chair at the next table was right against our table (I sat with the window beside me and my husband sat next to me facing the window) my husband had to move our bread basket because the lady’s hair was almost hanging in our basket because her chair was right up against our table. Really no fault of hers, that’s just how tight we were crammed in there.

The whole experience from start to finish was great. The views are superb. The meal was ok, not exactly five star, but very edible. The waiting staff were attentive, but not in your face. A definite must do if you are visiting Niagara Falls.

The view was amazing, the meal did not match up to the price they charged.. But you are really paying for the spectacular 360 degree revolving view. I had requested a table next to the seat, but were seated at a leveled up platform facing the windows. It just wasn't the same since you can't really see the waterfalls. We asked our waiter for another table right next to the window and he happily obliged. The rest of the night was great, we all really enjoyed the view even though the food tasted just ok. I would still recommend it for the overall experience!

Beautiful view, great service, wife's strip steak was sub standard, very fatty and loaded with muscle not worth even 1/3 of the money. Tenderloin was fine, chicken dry, apps very good, very expensive for the meal you got. Drinks were great and so was the service.

Good place with views. The prices are high, but I was fine with access to the other floors. I've been there for three times, and I am alright with my recent experience. Hope that they had a courtesy to hold my table for another 10 min though, which was taken and replaced by the table on second row far from windows.

We wish we had had a window seat for the best view, but the revolving dining room was still a good experience. The live pianist was a great addition and the servers were all very nice. We went at 7:30 during summer, so it got dark while we were up there and by the time we rotated to the falls they were illuminated!

The Skylon Tower is an older structure. Diners need to keep that in mind when going. Seating was crowded. Service was very good, as as the food. A bit pricey, but worth it for the view.

The view was of course exceptional.
Unfortunately the food was not good, we had a chicken breast which was supposed to have been with herbs of which there was little trace and the actual meat was dry. The seafood linguine were actually seafood noodles. The steak which we had ordered medium rare seemed to have been broiled as opposed to grilled, shame as the quality of the meat was good. Considering the plates were pretty basic, which is fine, it's a shame they didn't manage to cook them properly!! A missed opportunity considering the place they have.

If you are visiting Niagara Falls, a meal at the Skylon Tower is a great idea. The 360 view as the restaurant rotates is beautiful. The menu has a nice selection and the kid’s menu is especially great. The food was well prepared and served with a starch and vegetable. The meal is expensive, but considering the premium view, not unexpected. Each table has two assigned waiters and an unobstructed view.

Stay away from the arcade on the bottom floor.
