Absolutely wonderful flavors and wonderful plating. Love that it was farm to fork. Original fruits and veggies. I had the quail. Loved the risotto and the mushrooms. Quail was done to perfection. My husband had the halibut and it too was tasty and light. Jerusalem couscous was light, bright cucumber flavors. Would highly recommend. Excellence!

My wife and I liked being taken to our table by a man in a blue blazer and blue jeans (less formal) to a beautifully set table. We have traveled through the US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Singapore, French Polynesia, England, France and Italy and certainly haven’t eaten everywhere BUT I had the best overall meal I have ever had at the AG. My wife says, it’s one of the top places on her list, but she will not say it’s 1st. She is not sure. We all know that it takes more than food to make a great meal. Certainly tasty, well presented food is necessary but also the waiters; the Chef; the background music; the table setting; the wine or other drinks and your overall feelings make it special or beyond. For me it was beyond excellent. It was the top of everything I look for.

Weekend trip with hubby. We enjoy fine dining, not chain restaurants. Service was informed, personable and attentive. Food was local, seasonal and uncommon in all course options with unexpected, creative flavor pairings. Delicious and impressive—would highly recommend!!
Very nice selection of wines and non-spirited cocktails too.

The food is just great and it is a really nice, cozy, romantic atmosphere. We chose to go for dinner on Saturday night when there was live music. It wasn't too loud and just made it that much more romantic. Staff was very friendly and food was excellent and left us stuffed.

This is the second time dining at AG. The first time was a few years ago, and this experience was as wonderful as we remember from the first time.

The food is always fresh, inventive, and delicious. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to Niagara: an absolute must for us.

The AG is an exceptional restaurant! Interesting, delicious and beautifully-presented food. Excellent service. We ate our dinner (fixed price for $60.00) in the bar area, whose casual atmosphere we prefer to the more formal dining room.

We went the restaurant on Wednesday night for Birthday celebration. Greetings and welcoming was good, we ordered frog leg and salmon gravlax for first course and duck confit and beef tenderloin for main courses.
All the dishes were presented well and tasty.
Quality of the dishes was worth the price.
We would recommend this place for dinner.

From an internationally travelled foodie I found the food very palatable, imagantive and well presented. Abience once you get over basement location and the hallways and stairs to get their is wonderful. Service is much slower than it need be. One bus person to serve bread, water in a timely fashion would have been expected from a restaurant with this rating and price range. Wine list should have more wines I'm the 55 to 75 range. There are some excellent Niagara wines that would retail in restaurants in that segment.

The waitstaff was wonderful and very much a delight to speak to.
I order from their Farm to Table portion for my salad of Tomato’s and Peach. Ontario tomatoes and peaches sound great. I was surprised to have a salad with 2 tiny 1/2 slices of peach..mainly all lettuce...

AG is the finest restaurant we’ve been to in quite awhile! The creative menu selections focused on farm-to-table with many ingredients sourced from their own farm. They feature a 3-course menu with many choices-it was really hard to choose as everything sounds amazing, so the four of us picked different items so we could taste a bit of each. I would highly recommend AG to my fellow “foodie” friends.

Our server Jackie was excellent. She was welcoming and patient with us. Answered all of our questions and steered us in a direction in which we had a most enjoyable culinary experience. The AG tenderloin lived up to its hype and was perfectly seasoned and came out at the perfect temperature. The halibut was also delicious, subtle flavors, again expertly cooked. The whole experience was enjoyable, and we would certainly recommend AG to others!!

A unique culinary experience. Each plate was a playful artistic expression of a deep scientific knowledge of food. Group of 6 and not one bad thing hit our table!! The talents of the kitchen staff were incredible. The front of the house staff needs to keep up if this restaurants wants to stay busy! Waiting for menus and lack of personality from the server brought down my review to a 4 star.

Love the farm to table food. Everything was delicious. Had the halibut and couscous - excellent. Not a complaint about the restaurant it's about people who come, not sure why they find it necessary to wear an overabundance of perfume, I want to taste my food not your perfume. I wish people would be mindful of others.

Have dined at AG a few times but this time I thought the restaurant looked cold and sterile and the air conditional could have been set a little lower. Apart from that the food was excellent and the Staff were excellent. I am in the wine business and I thought the wine we chose could have been a little cheaper. The price for the wine in the Winery was $22.95 and AG cost $59.00, quite a markup.

Service was 100%. Attentive and not over the top. Enjoyed the food. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. Don’t be put off by the location and external appearance. Yes it is in the basement of a hotel, but you soon forget about that when you are seated.

Fantastic dining experience. Fresh ingredients, creative cuisine. Very limited menu as the menu is based upon organic produce provided by farm. Excellent choices available. Interesting presentation.

Wait staff very professional and knowledgeable about wine pairings. Elegant restaurant with intimate setting. Great music. Small bar area. Small private dining room available that is beautiful.

Would highly recommend.

Food and atmosphere were great. Service was SO slow. 30 minutes from reservation time to get my 1st drink. Almost 2 hours for entire meal. I was there by myself, as I saw great reviews and wanted to try it out. 2 hours was just too long to sit for a solo meal, despite it being delicious

Without a doubt, this was one of our best dining experiences ever, anywhere. Each course was absolutely excellent, as was the service. Although this is a farm-to-table restaurant, we didn't expect that the wines would be local also, which turned out to be a very pleasant surprise and introduced us to the quality wines produced in this area. A great find!
