Dinner was great! Server, Aliesha, was amazing and actually made the the whole experience that much better... highly recomend this place if you are anywhere remotely close. Or even if you're not. .....worth the drive!

The food was decent; not amazing but not terrible. Was a little surprised they didn’t have baked potatoes to go with the steak. The wine was a bit steep for the price, and the server didn’t check on us all that often. Overall it was ok; wouldn’t be my first choice to go back to, but it wasn’t awful either.

We had a lovely lunch with friends. Grill on King never disappoints....food is always beautifully served and plentiful. The service is always good but this time, in particular, our server (Michelle) was especially delightful. She was knowledgeable about the items on the menu as well as the wines and made very good suggestions. We all thoroughly enjoyed what we had. Our friends were visiting from out of town and she was especially helpful and informative about sights they may be interested in seeing, not only in NOTL, but other areas of Niagara Region, which was appreciated. Well done once again Grill on King!🌻

I had booked many days in advance. I indicated there would be five of us and that I was taking the kids out for a fancier dinner to celebrate all the birthday dinners that were missed due to COVID-19. The girls were all done up, hair and dresses. The two boys in their bests. When we arrived we stood for a long period before even being addressed. When finally we were we were told that they would have a table for us soon, even though it was past our reservation time already. Looking into the restaurant there were empty tables ( I understand distancing) and there was a table for six empty. When finally seated we were taken through the restaurant and out the back door. We were put at a plastic table and chairs. It was cold out and was spitting. I would have had more understanding if this was when restaurants first opened and were getting used to the new conditions. However, this was well beyond that period. Our drinks had to be ordered twice. Ice was missing in almost all of them. The food was good and hot when we received it. Our waiter was very kind but seemed frazzled. We had to repeat our orders to him again as he forgot some. Thank goodness I had a picnic blanket in the vehicle in order to put over the three youngest as they were freezing. No one seemed to care and no one ever acknowledged that it was to celebrate their birthdays. After spending o er $200 i was pretty unhappy when I left. I had indicated all the proper information in the reservation. We also were by the dumpster which was lovely. It made a night that was to be special quite the opposite. I’ve never written a bad review in my life.

We made a reservation at 6pm. When we got there 5mins before our reservation time there was a line up. We thought let’s be courteous and wait until somebody comes over to let us in. About 6:20, host asked if we had a reservation and yes I said 6 pm. She went over to the counter and was talking to one of the server, came back told us we had to wait another 20 mins. I said what is the point of making reservation when we have to wait almost an hour like other customers who did not have reservation. He said the restaurant is full and they can’t predict the time when they will finish eating. I said isn’t that the whole point of making a reservation so customers don’t have to wait. He said there’s nothing he can do. So we waited another 15 mins and they sat us at the table. The food was great but it was very slow. The servers weren’t very organized. They just seemed overwhelmed.
It took us 3 hours to finish our meal where we usually take 2 hours at other restaurants. I might or might not go back there. It was not a very pleasant experience.

Food was delicious. Seared tuna with rice pilaf, seaweed and vegetables. Tuna perfectly cooked and very tender. The other meal was mussels in a tomato sauce. Again delicious and served with fresh bread.
Server was called Arturo and was so friendly and attentive.
Ate outside on their patio on one of those incredibly warm August evenings.
A lovely experience in Niagara on the lake and highly recommended.

Great service, fantastic food. Very quiet though, I felt like I had to almost whisper when taking to my s/o. Also, the prices here on opentable need to be updated as they are a little pricier than we had expected.

Overall great experience! :)

I had the tuna , and it was not properly seared so it tasted really bad . Then I asked for cappuccino and the milk was cured so they made me another and the milk was still cured and the waitress made me feel like I was the one with the problem !!!
So for what we paid for our dinner was definitely not worth it and I’m definitely not going to refer family or friends !

In this very nice village with lots of flowers we had our dinner at the Grill on King. The food and wine list are great. Steaks and poultry well prepared. Big portions. It was busy around 7 PM so we had to wait some time. The interior is a bit Spartan, not much decoration and no table linen, this could be improved.

I think the intention is there but the execution is not. Nice people but I think the management is the issue. Sold as a semi-formal place but service is more like a bar style. Way to casual.

Overall, I think the food is good but perhaps if the restaurant wasn't located in Niagara On The Lake, it may have a rude awakening in the "real world".

Booked our dinner weeks in advanced for our 10 Year Anniversary. Greeter/Waitress took no knowledge nor did our waitress care. She seemed preoccupied. Speaking to us while looking at another table and not paying attention to us. To top it off a waiter walked by with a tray full of plates and cutlery he had picked up from a table. A knife or fork dropped on the floor and he kicked it towards the kitchen!!!!! Instead of picking it up. It was just not somewhere I would return to be honest.

Outstanding! I have recommended the Grill on King to all my friends visiting NOTL. Their mushroom risotto is to die for. Every time I'm in town I have to get my fix. My friends loved the pasta arriabata and the chicken dish too.

Loved the food and service and it’s nice on the inside. Little fruit fly’s drove us crazy at the table. Not just one or two but many!! It took a lot away from an otherwise nice experience

The person at reception denied an online booking was a booking but luckily they had a table available. Service was quick and I ordered the sole with hollandaise, fish was beautifully cooked but sauce was small amount and dried up. My husband had the burger and enjoyed it. Meal was spoiled by being eaten alive by mosquitoes on the terrace.

It was like the revenge of the fruit flies as we were swatting them away for the entire time. Seated inside, I don’t know why this was a problem. Service suffered from what looked like a call off short staffed situation. Food was incredible though and wiped away all the sins that I have mentioned.

Food is always good. Service this visit was poor. White wine was very warm, we told our server and he simply said "sorry". He did not offer to replace it.....at $11.00 a glass we felt that was the least he could do. He was unorganized and although he seemed to be rushing around, his customer service skills need improving. Our dirty dishes sat on our table until the bill arrived. Although I have always enjoyed my meal here I am contemplating going elsewhere next time. I reside in Niagara Falls and this restaurant has been our go to when visitors come to town. Disappointed!
