First time in Niagra in the lake and this restaurant was absolutely amazing. The mushroom soup was great and enjoyed my chicken skewer as well. Service was wonderful

We opted to sit outside as the interior seating was very noisy from a large group with small children. The patio seating was somewhat cramped . The food was well prepared and the server was very helpful and attentive . Great location with easy access to the theatre , short 10 minute walk .This has been our go to pre-theatre restaurant in Niagara on the Lake for a number of years.

Waiter would have preferred if we knew what we wished to order before we even got there. He was grumpy and rushed us all through ordering and dinner. The tables are so small that it is uncomfortable for 4 people to dine together not recommended

I am glad we were not scared off by the negative reviews. The menu selections were quite extensive even though pricey..but that was a special occasion so we were okay with it.
Our server Michele was a darling and on the spot with everything we wanted and needed. The servings were generous. The chicken skewer was more than my wife could handle with rice and potatoes and vegetables.
I had the calves liver with mashed potatoes and I didn't need a knife...it was so tender. I found out later that this is a house specialty.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant and be sure to ignore the " sour grape " reviews.

We had lunch today at Grill on King. We sat outside on the patio. The patio was lovely with lots of flowers on a fairly quiet street. The wait staff was attentive, the service prompt but not rushed. The food was very good. All in all it was a very nice lunch.

Went with family on a Tuesday evening. Service was excellent. Food was very, very good and brought quickly. Cheesecake was spectacular! Decor is clean and modern. Staff was friendly.
Will be making this a regular stop anytime in Niagara area. Highly recommended.

Food was good, but the waitress seemed to be having a bad day. Young hostess stood there leaning on her podium, no offer to help wait staff. Sad to see when they probably share their tips with her.

Service was awful. Waitress never asked if we wanted a drink other than what type of water . We were basically ignored once she asked where we were from and it was the NYC area.
The food was not great. Sole was over cooked and hollandaise sauce was too thick. Seafood cake was not good . My husbands salmon was ok, but not great. This could be a great place, but our experience was disappointing.

We had to wait for awhile for our table.
The hostess was very sweet about it though. The evening was nice enough to sit outside on the patio, something I requested when making the reservation.
We enjoyed sitting at the bar and waiting for our table as the bartender was extremely personable.
Our server was good even though she was very busy with other tables.
Food was all very tasty.
Overall we would definitely go back and the location of this restaurant was good.

We have been there a few times in the past and always enjoyed our meal. We decided to go back and it was very nice but the server was having an off day! She never read us the specials, oh wait the table next to us was told very abruptly when they asked "WE DON'T HAVE SPECIALS, WE HAVE FEATURES!!" I think they were shocked and so were we. I asked if you had a certain drink I like and I was told "NO!!" with no follow up. By the way I would have loved to order the Tuna Special, I mean Feature.
We were never asked if we wanted coffee or desert, she just dropped the check on the table. The Food was very good and we sat outside and it was a beautiful evening. We were in no hurry and would like to have a second drink and relax. Also we were staying at the Harbor House for two nights and I know your connected.
It was our Anniversary Weekend and we would go back but ask for a different Server.

Dunes on aug 8/19 & seated on patio. Which had 2 servers each serving their side. Well the lady waitress on our side was WAY slower at taking our order. Never asked if we wanted wine. Never told us the specials (would’ve changed what we ordered - heard from next table after we ordered) & the menu prices were $10 more than what is listed below. Told her we were hungry when we ordered and then asked we are we from & where are we staying. Just above the restaurant.

I hope the restaurant mgr reads this to prove their customer service is better by giving us a credit before we leave August 10

The evening was almost totally spoiled by a stand in hostess. She seemed disinterested, unwilling to be flexible and we noticed she scared several potential customers away by her approach. We sat near the entrance to the patio yet did not see her smile once. She was also inappropriately dressed wearing something akin to a romper suit.

We shall check she is no longer there before booking again. She is certainly not an asset to one of our favourite restaurants.

Had the Grill Burger which was not fresh. Fries were soggy. Too pricey in my opinion and geared towards US tourists. They get 30% discount due to exchange. Wouldn't go back.

The ambience was as non-existent as the personality of the staff. I felt like he was doing us a favor by seating us (with a reservation) in a near empty restaurant. We were there with 2 other couples during the busy summer season. The lack of customers should have been a dead give away. But at least the food was expensive and not good.

We were there for dinner before a show at the Shaw festival. The food was delicious and our martinis were appropriately prepared. Service was friendly and attentive, but not overbearing, and the food was prepared and brought out in an appropriate amount of time for prepared fish.

Highly recommend for your Shaw festival dining.

Was vacationing in NOTL and saw this restaurant on a brochure. Chose it mostly because it has patio dining which is not common in NOTL. Wife had the orange roughy and I had the rack of lamb. Both were incredible! Perfectly done and presented beautifully. Service was impeccable as they were very accommodating and did not rush us. The weather was perfect and the outdoor seating was comfortable and pleasant. Just a great dinner in a great town. I highly recommend both.

A most pleasant eatery with both outside porch and inside tables available. Service was efficient and most congenial. Our group of four had a variety of dishes, The Atlantic Salmon, The Calves Liver, The Seafood Fettucine, and the Seafood Neptune. All four entrees were deemed to be absolutely excellent, adequate portions and nicely flavoured. The collective agreement that the meals were superb was easily reached. Highly recommend this eatery. We will be back for sure.
