Although the service was great, and I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant, overall it wasn’t that great of a meal. The food was just average and for what you pay, I was expecting a better tasting experience.

Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable He assisted us in making delicious choices. There were many choices for cocktails choices and wines to accompany our meal. We had mussels and garlic bread to start. We then each had a pasta dish both equally delicious. We were too full for desert but were given a bit of an Ice Wine for our Anniversary which we enjoyed. The only downside was the additional unregulated local tax applied on top of the Government tax of 13%. I feel this takes advantage of your tourists who are already spending their money freely at your beautiful hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions as well as tipping well those providing us with their service.

We had a lovely evening at Massimo's. Carley was a great server, spot on with recommendations and very professional. We had a great table by the window to view the falls and the fireworks. Food was delicious. We ended up getting the 3 course prix fixe menus. Hubby had calamari, linguine carbonara, and tiramisu - liked them all. I chose carpaccio and the veal chop special which was fabulous! I also had a triple chocolate dessert. We had some wines by the glass and a bottle of local red (went to the winery the next day). Carley also encouraged us to stay for the fireworks with complimentary glasses of ice wine. What a good experience and nice evening. Thanks!

We ordered the three course meal. My carbonara was excellent. The chocolate dessert wonderful. Caesar salad was very good , but way too much. Service was very attentive.

We booked a table for my son’s birthday last minute asking for the best available table and they sat us right next to the window! Great atmosphere, service, food and food presentation. Would go there again in a minute! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

What a great experience! My friend and I decided to share a main dish because we were going out after and did not want to carry leftovers - this is a great option if you're not super hungry. It was AMAZING. I will 100% be going back, next time with my boyfriend. Great service, friendly, we were seated fast (with reso), and the view was amazing even from the high-top table. Go there!! You won't regret it.

Reserved a table 3 weeks in advance, with memo that it was for a VERY special occasion, mentioned the occasion. Were seated at the table next to the bar and door to the kitchen (the last table in the restaurant, a two seater). All other diners that we could see, even the walk in couples, were at larger tables. Very noisy with the service bar next to us, and the servers stopping to talk before entering into the kitchen. Food was very disappointing. I had the penne ragu, there were 3 small pencil eraser sized pieces of meat in it, appeared to be ground beef . Husband had the crab pasta special, tasted like crab, but no pieces of crab meat. Garlic bread excellent (for 18.00 dollars it better be!) And calamari was also excellent. Breathtaking view and EXCELLENT service were the pluses.

View was great our server very friendly but that’s all that was good about our visit. Calamari was chewy , the chicken dry and risotto over cooked. The decor was dated and no table linens. For what they charge, I had expected more.

Massimo's was our favorite restaurant in the Niagara area. Christian was one of the best servers we met on our nine day trip. His explanation of the food and excellent recommendation for a bottle of wine made the dinner exceptional. He stopped at the table a couple times to make sure we were pleased with the food. He certainly has a lot of experience in the business and makes people feel good about the restaurant and your property. We will be back!

Lovely dining experience for a very “touristy” location. The restaurant had excellent views, great food and outstanding service. Our server, Jessie, was excellent. Super friendly and accommodating and made the night that much better.

Food bland, service extremely poor but the chianti wine was good. The staff handled our complaint of poor food & service very poorly. Our appetiser was served only a few minutes before our main meal was served. Not good at all & expensive for what we had.

We were greeted warmly when we got there and seated right away. Our server, Chevonn, was amazing. She helped us making our choices with food and with wine pairings and everything was just perfect.

The food was fantastic and cooked exactly how we asked.

This was our 40th anniversary dinner and we could not have asked for anything more.

Thank you!!

We went because we had the dinning coupon from the hotel but wouldn't have gone otherwise. Very expensive for what it was. Waitress asked if we wanted to start out with water or sparkling water...was assuming because she offered between the two that there was no charge for the sparkling water...boy was I wrong. It was $7.50 for the 750ml bottle, there was no way as one person I was going to drink all that. Wish she would have said it is a charge. Even with the $20 voucher the meal still came to $80 and that is with the $5 bread and two pasta dinners. I experienced it sure but probably wouldn't go back based on the shear cost of the dinning experience. View was great but not worth it overall if you ask me.
