We were very excited to have dinner here. The ambiance and service were practically unmatched. The food, however, was another story. Generous portions but everything was seasoned either too heavy or nothing at all. Hate to say it but we definitely would not go back.

We visited the Red Coach Inn restaurant on 2/9/19 and it was FABULOUS. The food was all delicious. I had the chicken piccata- highly recommend. My dad said the scallops were the best he's ever had. Our server was great as well. I will definitely be back!

I typically never take the time to submit reviews, but I felt compelled to after our negative experience. The service was extremely poor. When we arrived, it took forever for the hostess to seat us. There were only 3 parties in line. When we sat, it took unusually long for our drink order and then even longer to actually get our drinks. It wasn’t even that busy, especially for the bartender. The waitress explained to us that there would be no bread for the table because of issues with their cooler. I’m not sure how that is even possible. If they lost their butter due to cooler issue, they should have went to the store and bought some for the evening. As our meal went on, it took forever for our drinks to be refilled. Finally our meal wasn’t that great. Two of our steaks were over cooked instead of medium. The other steak was undercooked and wasn’t butterflied as requested. This was a very disappointing experience. On the plus side, the ambience is very nice.

A local restaurant built in 1923 (?) replicated to 18th Century English decor. Beautiful. Real wood-burning fireplace kept us cozy on a winter's day. The Niagara room overlooks the Niagara rapids, nice view. Our server was very attentive. It was my husband's birthday, and our server, Joe overheard and came over to tell him to save room for the dessert- my husband said 'how about a shot of bourbon instead?" Joe said he'd see what he could do. When came back with our drinks he also brought him a shot and said it was on him! So nice. My husband had the strip steak which was done to perfection, came with mashed potatoes and asparagus. I had the swordfish, spinach risotto and broccoli. All was most delicious. I would definitely not hesitate to go back. Not too pricey either.

The food and wine were AMAZING!!!!! My wife and I went there to celebrate her 40th birthday for a quick lunch. It was so good we cancelled our reservations for another restaurant we had and went back for dinner. Both meals were delicious and the servers were super friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere and great service. We will definitely be back.

Service, food, and atmosphere were all wonderful! We went on a Thursday night in January and were able to park right by the front door. Being off season it was very mellow and we were even able to pick where we wanted to be seated. The fireplace was crackling and warm. We enjoyed everything about our meal and we look forward to returning to explore more of the menu.

The building looked so beautiful outside and the ambience inside the restaurant was simply amazing. The Haunted history was very intriguing and added to our interest in visiting the Inn. The menu offered a vast selection. We were a party of 5 and every single entrée we ordered was utterly delicious. Service that was provided was extremely gracious & professional. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who plans to visit Buffalo.

It's my favorite restaurant for a number of reasons; the wide selection of delicious food, friendly, professional staff, the ambiance is lovely for casual or dressy occasions, it's quiet and serene for conversation, it has an enormous wood burning fireplace for cozy winter nights, and from the front dining room, an exquisite view of the rapids.

Always a great spot when in Niagara Falls. We witnessed 3 engagements and that was very exciting for everyone at the restaurant. The food was not as good as I have had in the past, it was busy and staff seemed tired. Very cool ambiance and potential for a great dinner, if staff get some support.(heard lots of complaints while sitting at the bar about management)

The starters and appetizers were to die for and the old world decor is wonderful. However, the steaks were chewy and poorly cooked the waitstaff were rude and speaking vulgar to each other within earshot of my table. It was nice to "splurge" but I would not be going back, over all the experience did not justify the bill.

We chose restaurant week options. Mine was a pork loin with cherry glaze. Pork was dry, vegetables a bit over cooked. I ordered a glass of Pinot Noir which tasted like it had been from on open bottle for a few days. Ordered decaf coffee with dessert which was very bitter / had an aftertaste. This was for a birthday celebration and was very disappointing. I would not come here again.

Service was so poor - all around. I waited at the door by the "wait to be seated" sign for over 5 minutes before anyone acknowledged me (and yes, there were servers and a bartender walking around). I was seated for ten minutes before a server said "has anyone been with you yet?" (Umm. No.). The guy who brought bread to the table just sat it down and ran off (and yet, I had just heard him explaining to the table nearby about the various varieties of butter). Waited a good half hour for a burger and fries (I do appreciate that the server let me order this. It wasn't technically on the dinner menu, but I saw one being served to a table nearby and ordered one.) No one ever came by to check to see how my dinner was (if they had, I would have asked for mayo). I waited, and waited, and waited. Finally decided to just eat it as is.

My lemon drop martini was good. The burger was good. Fries were delicious.

Again, waited about 10-15 minutes after I was finished. No one ever stopped by the table. I stopped a host seating another table and asked him to send my server with the check. The guy who dropped off the bread dropped off the check. NO ONE EVER CAME BACK. I had my credit card sitting there for a good 10 mintues. Finally scrounged around in my purse to see if I had case. Ended up having exact change for the bill. I did see my server on the way out. She was standing with two other servers. . chatting.

I waited tables for years and tip generously. I never stiff a server. But honestly had no choice since no one ever came to pick up the check. What really annoys me is that it seemed like other folks were getting better service. Perhaps the issue was a woman dining alone? PLEASE it's 2018.

We waited 8 minutes to be seated in a half empty restaurant. This front of the house is a fricking zoo , no manager or direction. Food is fair , my NY Strip was a cheap grizzly piece of meat,very yuk. I also had breakfast there , terrible waitstaff but no manager present. I NEVER got a second cup of coffee, waited 11 minutes for my check. This place is charming with SO MUCH potential but no manager and ownership doesn't give a crap.

The restaurant is handily placed when visiting the falls, as there is not much else around. However, the service was among the worst experienced. We had made a reservation and were seated fairly promptly. Although the restaurant was not full, it took a long time before our server appeared, who took orders for drinks and food. Two starters appeared before the drinks. We needed to prompt the waiter who served the starters to find out where our drinks were. In total it was more than 30 minutes before we were served drinks. Then we waited some considerable time for the mains after the starters had been cleared. No follow up to see if we were enjoying our meal.

What a beautiful restaurant! It was a unseasonably warm day, which is perhaps the reason the staff wasn't ready for patio seating. It was open, but not prepared. Some of the staff seemed a little frazzled.
The view and the food however, was wonderful. My friend and I started with the Almond Coconut Shrimp. Loved every bite. The orange sauce had some nice heat to it!
I ordered the pear salad with candied pecans, dried cranberries and goat cheese with maple-fig vinaigrette. It was delicious, if a bit sweet.
My friend had the beef on weck with potato salad. Generous portions on everything. He declared it to be one of the best he'd ever had. We really enjoyed our experience and will be back!
