Excellent in all aspects. Have eaten there on several occasions & have always been delighted. Food quality, preparation, service & ambience are first-rate. To my mind, it is the best dining experience in the Western New York & lower Ontario region.

Not a huge number of options on the menu and all on the extreme high end price wise, but taste of food and service was excellent.

I have been to the restaurant before , but never to the Brunch. The food was cold. I think they need to upgrade their heating devices at the buffet. The salmon was very fishy..... I am used to Nova ( Scotia) which has a fresher taste. The ambiance is excellent and the service was great.

Fabulicious was excellent. This was our first time dining at Queen’s Landing. The meal was fabulous. The only thing a little lacking were the mussels. Other than that a fabulous meal. Service was outstanding!!

I want to recommend Gerry for his great service. He went above and beyond and made our lunch fascinating. He engaged us with good conversations and delighted the kids. He gave us recommendations to come back for a seafood lovers lunch every Sunday. Aside from the good steaks we had at Tiara, Gerry’s attentive service make us want to come back for that Seafood lunch every Sunday.

Waitress was excellent but had to much to do, too many tables. Not enough support staff. Most restaurants of this caliber have support staff to deliver meals, refill water, etc. There were six of us and the meals did not come out at the same time, neither did the appetizers or the desert. Once the food arrived it was excellent. Hats off to the chef and the hardworking waitress. Management however needs to eat at a few of their competitors to see how a well run dining room works, I suggest Trius or The keg.

Servers basically ignored us for the first 20 minutes. No one brought menus or acquainted us with any specials. My wife was famished, having eaten too lightly at breakfast.
We had to request bread.
Pasta dish contained charred beef tips and a sauce, but all I could taste was too much Parmesan, which blotted out the other flavours.
My wife had a lamb shank, which was good, but dry, with only about a teaspoon of sauce on the plate.
All in all... not what one would expect from a restaurant at this level.

The staff are friendly and attentive and the room is stunning but for the second time, the food was incredibly poor. We had breakfast and it's hard to know how you can make a simple dish so badly... You'll get a breakfast ten times as well prepared and tasty at Sunset Grill. Our eggs were hard but also watery from the poach, the toast was burnt, the potatoes a combination of raw and burnt. It was practically inedible. I would not write this place off as it's such a nice venue and you could not ask for better service, but the kitchen is not great just now.

A disappointing experience.
Service was very good and friendly. Server was quite attentive.
Food fell short of expectations, especially in view of the prices.
Large, loud group was seated close to "tables for two" even though all of the rest of the restaurant was available.

We had a lovely dinner at Tiara...it was our second visit and it did not disappoint! Food was delicious! We were lucky to have the same server, Rose, and the service was classy and top-notch. Great evening in Niagara on the Lake. We will definitely return on our next visit!

Tiara has a really good brunch, the choices are many and varied and it is all really flavourful. The hot food however has to be put on ice cold plates so by the time I sat down to eat the food was cold. This was disappointing and hopefully this situation can be rectified. I will still recommend Tiara for brunch and I will go back again myself because its really good.

We had a very nice dinner with great table service but the atmosphere is somewhat bland institutional and the noise level was surprisingly high as it’s one large room with little sound buffering fabric or dividers. There is a nice view over the marina. However, we’ve had equally nice, if not better, meals with equally
good service at other locations that had a lot more character. I will rate this place highly as there was nothing wrong, but we’re unlikely to choose to dine there again as we prefer places with better ambiance.

What exceptional views this restaurant offers, overlooking the marina and surrounding beautifully groomed flowerbeds, regardless what table you are seated in! Elegant, sophisticated ambiance and decor throughout. Excellent, knowledgeable staff. Food and service were wonderful. The Thanksgiving dinner incorporated the finest local and regional ingredients. 'Truly delicious' Baked Celery Root Soup with Grainy Mustard Cream; Niagara Pear and Cardamon Sorbet; Herb Roasted Turkey Breast with Praline Pudding; Maple Roots and Bulbs; Spiced Apple Walnut Torte. All food was so beautifully plated. Our heartfelt Congratulations to the very talented, creative Chef!

The service was very slow. However, we were out to enjoy ourselves. One comment. The family next to us decided to let their kids entertain themselves with video games. I could not hear the nice jazz over the dinging of the game.

You may want to have a cell phone / gaming policy in the dining room. Children that can't behave should go to a bar or a roadhouse.

This was our Thanksgiving celebration dinner. We are locals who have often eaten in the Tiara room. We found the food just OK, service quite slow (but waitress very good). We were kind of disappointed overall.

Book early if you want the Sunday brunch 11:30 to 1; my reservation was for 1:15 we were a bit early (1:00) but they were able to seat us. The selection were great and well presented. Waitress was friendly and attentive. Would recommend this brunch. My wife uses a walker and they made sure we were seated on the upper level. One suggestion for the buffet a few signs to show the start not obvious when coming from the dining room (large dinner plates are at the far end. It was our anniversary (51) and they had a nice desert presentation for us:) Mike & Toni Toronto

Dining room was not what we were expecting- it felt more like a banquet hall at a hotel: detached, generic, musty. The food was ok, but not for the price. I dislike when restaurant in popular areas take advantage of this by inflating their worth and quality.

From the moment we checked in the sophistication and class of this restaurant was apparent. A very extensive wine and cocktail menu was explained and a sommelier was offered if we had any questions. Rose, our server, was friendly and engaging while making sure we had everything we needed for our Anniversary meal. We were surprised with a rose, candles and dessert. This was top notch for sure. A must while in NOTL.

I asked for a quieter spot but there was no need as the restaurant was very quiet. Great table by the window and excellent food and service.
