This was a perfect dinner, the food is amazing,! We had aranchini, wild boar meat balls, the salmon and the organic chicken. Everything was so different and so tasty I do not have words to describe...I added some pics to show the dishes. You have to try, I think is the best food experience we ever had in Niagara! Also the view is pretty amazing from the 10th floor. Courtesy of Chef Massimo Capra!

Our server was great. Very knowlegable. Very friendly. Our reasons for not giving 5 stars: The pacing of the meal; There was virtually no time lapse between finishing our appetizers and the serving of the mains. Similarly between finishing the mains and our dessert. We asked for some time and got less than 5 minutes. The restaurant was by no means full so we should have had better pacing. We were in and out in just over 2 hours.
Lastly the mashed potatoes on my chicken entree tasted suspiciously instant not real.

Worst dinner of my life I've had better service and food at Montana's would never recommend this place and will never return.

My wife and I ordered the sane meal and our stakes came at the same time mine was closer to med and hers was a decent med rare waited 15 minutes for wouldn't even call her our server but waited when she did walk by I had to ask her to look at my meal and how over cooked it was and proceeded to offer me another as my wife us almost done here u said no just our bill almost 10 minutes later the manager comes to our table to fix my steak and I had to again say no all I need is my bill.....


One would think a restaurant carrying the name of an amazing chef and one that works out to a min 100 a plate with wine could cook a steak right but I guess not.


Disappointed do not recommended to eat here at all.

We went on a special birthday dinner, had requested for candles, they did not see it. The food was mediocre, had honey in the halibut dish which did not taste good. The server brought the wrong cocktail, then we returned it and was charged. We saw two other tables unhappy and walk out, not satisfied. The big consolation is the great views of Niagara.

Our server Chris was amazing. Very polite, helpful in making a decision and his service and presentation was exceptional.
Our food however, and to be honest, was not worth the 200$ bill.
Steak was over-charred and burnt. Salmon was nothing spectacular. In fact my fiancée said I’ve made better steaks and fish dishes st home.
Cocktails were also not worth the 10$/drink. They were not mixed properly so very strong liquor taste instead of flavour.
Can’t say I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. I’d take the keg any day which said to say about a fine dining restaurant.

Food presentation was great. Did ordered two Caesar salad, but they brought us kind of garden salad with overpowering vinegar.
Also one of the dishes came with mashed potato instead of risotto. They brought risotto in 15 min after while the dish was cold, with just a “Sorry about that”.
Sorry, not a high scale restaurant as advertise themselves.
View is nice, just make sure to ask for a table on the windows and visit summer time when windows are not foggy.

We were in The Falls and wanted to try a different restaurant than we'd been to before. Our friends had recently been to The Rainbow Room so we thought we'd give it a try.

First off, the service. Our waiter Christopher was top notch. Very attentive without intruding. Very friendly and knowledgeable. He should get a raise!

Second the food. I opted for the line caught halibut and it was delicious. My fingerling potatoes were not as crispy as the menu suggested, perhaps even a bit underdone, but the overall plate was excellent. My girlfriend had the fettuccine bolognese. Excellent portion size and very tasty. Cooked to perfection.

Lastly the atmosphere. We had a late seating at 8:30pm on New Years Day. There were a few people in the place but it was mostly empty. In fact we were the last to leave. I expect it is much busier on a normal business day. That said it was cozy and the view is fantastic by the windows. Also good music in the background.

You put us in a function room...we understand you cannot accommodate our window seat request in the dining area but we would have at least been given the option to be seated in the main dining area. It took away from the experience of being at the restaurant, which plays a part in enjoying the meal.

Also, I was given the soup without a spoon. I drank it anyway while it was hot because I did not want to wait for another one. In both entrees the peas were undercooked and the mashed potatoes cold.

Went as a family of 4, my wife, 2 boys (ages 10 and 13) and myself.

Food was fantastic. Portions were deceivingly bigger than they appear. From the Beef Tenderloin to the Rack of Lamb and Line Caught Wild Halibut, everything was prepared, presented, and tasted amazingly.

The ambiance was disappointing. For a fine dining restaurant, we were seated very close to two other tables, which were both very loud and boisterous. We were seated close enough to both tables, one on either side of us, that we could have joined both conversations with ease. Our seats were also opposite the kitchen entrance and had wait staff walking past all evening. There were many tables open away from this area and it felt to us as though they seated tables in clumps to make it easier on the wait staff which detracts from the dining experience.

All in all, the food and general service was above expectations. The seating was lacking, and detracted from our overall experience.

A wonderful experience during the holidays to save all the stress of cooking at home Christmas day. The food was delicious and the view spectacular. We were running late but we were not rushed at all. My daughter and her friend live in Toronto and do a great deal of traveling and they have eaten in very trendy restaurants and they thoroughly enjoyed everything about the meal and service. This is our third time at Christmas and we will do it again. We were hoping for a full course Turkey diner but had the Cornish hens instead.

The first two appetizers we ordered were out in minutes. Which (to me) means frozen and microwaved. From there, my opinion was skewed.

Kale chips was sautéed spinach. Mushroom crostinI was bland.

Cauliflower gnocchi was Exceptional! It's why I went; I'd go back just for that. Amazing.

View you can't beat. We had Lindsey, who was friendly & knowledgeable and patient.

This was our second dining opportunity at the Rainbow Room. We chose it to celebrate our daughter’s engagement. Our wait person Lindsay (sommelier in training) was wonderful with just the right amount of advice for our group of 6.

I was disappointed that despite reservations well ahead, and a special request for a window table, no effort was made to accommodate us. The regular seating arrangement along the window includes only 2 tables for 6 (these are allocated on a first come first served basis) and the rest are tables for 2. It would have been very easy to put 3 of them together and make a window seating for 6. This was the only disappointing aspect. Our food was delicious and our group thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance.

The food was really good and the Waiter was great. Nice views of both Niagara and the American falls and got a view of the fireworks over the falls. There was a rather loud obnoxious group of people on a nearby table which wasn't great but no fault of the restaurants. Would definitely recommend and eat here again.

The staff were very nice and our server was great! However, the food was average. We got the prosciutto and pear which was really good but the steak was horrible. I'm not sure if it was the cut of the meat that was bad quality or that it was way overcooked but it was dry and hard to chew, I almost choked on a small piece. The dessert was quite nice, we got the banana lava cake but there was so molting chocolate; it still tasted good though.

We came here recently and it was dark and rainy so the view wasn't great, I would recommend this place during the day if you want to see the falls and take photos. Also, if you're a foodie bring a light cause it is very dim, which is great for a romantic atmosphere, but it's hard to get a good food photo.

The food and service was excellent. I thought it was going to be really upscale, so planning attire was an issue before leaving home. But we gambled and went casual, no tie and jacket required. The view of the falls from the table made for an excellent evening. Cocktails were just okay, I’d stay with wine if that’s your thing.

Nice view of the falls. Not busy at all. Tired decor. Caesar salad had way too much vinegar in the dressing and no cheese at all. Cocktails were tasty but definitely light on the alcohol. Some tables got bread, but we did not. Eggplant was good. Service was slow. Expensive overall. We would not go back.

First and foremost, the staff was amazing so this review is strictly based on the food quality/price itself.

For an "upscale" restaurant, the food options and quality was quite lacking. Plating seems more about tricking you to eating something of quality rather than actually providing it to you. Lamb was extremely dry and the teaspoon of sauce they gave you did not help cover that up. Wife's meal was equally below what you'd expect. Asparagus had Swiss cheese melted on it that looked like it was warmed in a microwave with a Kraft Single put on it.

You obviously pay for a view here, but the fact that the falls are pretty far away and the glaring lights of the adjacent Ferris Wheel really blinds out the ambience for you, it is rather a waste of money to be honest. Don't know if there are better restaurants for views in the area, but the quality of food definitely wasn't worth what you pay and I'd rather have a good meal and then walk to the falls to see them at night afterwards.

The food was absolutely delicious and well priced for what you get. The server was a little bit holier-than-thou, and some menu items were either out of stock or unavailable due to broken kitchen equipment, which was definitely disappointing. The windows also reflected a lot of glare, but the view was spectacular. I would definitely recommend this for a date night.
