It was our anniversary and they knew it but they never recognized it. They sat us in a corner table above the stairs. Staff were all men....which is okay but they were a bit weird.

Although our food was really good.....eating in a basement of an old made over hotel takes away from the experience. The area seemed a little sketchy to someone from out of town. Would have loved to take a stroll often our dinner but really....we were afraid to! I would recommend a ‘fresh’ new location to really show off your local fair and the very unique dishes.

The wait staff was friendly, courteous and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was excellent. Everything was prepared perfectly and presentation was beautiful. The appropriate amount of time was given between all the courses, so we did not feel as though we were rushed.
A complimentary dessert for our anniversary was a nice touch. We would recommend the AG at the Sterling to anyone.

When we tried to call to make a reservation, the reception seemed a bit confused about their availability...saying they only had a table at 9pm. We ended up going online and found a table for 8:30pm. However, when we arrived the restaurant definitely looked nearly empty.

Overall, the food was really delicious. I would highly recommend it. It is a genuine farm-to-table experience, and the quality of the ingredients can be tasted. It is a hidden gem.

Our dining experience was nice. However, even when we asked for the AC to be turned down, the party room we were at was extremely cold. One of our guests had allergies, we informed our server after we placed our order (that was clearly our mistake), and he assured us that the food we ordered would not contain any of the ingredients that our guest would be allergic to.

The chef sent out complimentary amuse bouche, we enjoyed that generous gesture of hospitality. However, much to our chagrin the server notified us AFTER we had already eaten the amuse bouche that it contained a small trace of one of the ingredients our guest is allergic to. Luckily, no allergic reaction ensued.

When ordering our food, we turned to our server for recommendations on the wine. We were hoping for guidance or pairing recommendations but it seemed that our server was not able to provide us with that. For the price and the upscale atmosphere of this restaurant, I would assume that the servers would be knowledgeable and fluent in all aspects of the menu.

We also noticed one of our knives had a spot left over from not being cleaned properly. When we ordered a bottle of ice wine for dessert, our server didn't realize they actually didn't have the wine we ordered. It wasn't anything major but it did detract from the experience. If they want to be completely immersive with the upscale restaurant, I think they need to spend a bit more effort in paying attention to the detail.

We were a party of four and everyone was blown away by the food and service. We each tried different dishes and all were excellent. The chef creates wonderful presentations with unique local ingredients. AG is serious about food—this restaurant could compete with some of the finest in the world. Outstanding!

The dining room is hidden in the basement of the Sterling Hotel—don’t let that dissuade you. This is a dining experience not to miss when in Niagara Falls. We also felt that the price (US $85 including tax and tip) was reasonable. We had a round of cocktails, three courses, and wine.

We reserved table from this place and asked if they’re still offering the Sunday special as it says on the website. We arrived there and no one greeted us to the entrance. Have to wait for the server and even raise my hand for them to come to me. Then we just know on the spot they don’t have the Sunday special anymore- only reason why we’re eating here. So we had to order ala carte. Food and service were on point. Delicious food and the servers are explaining the food well with very professional attitude. Had some sparkling wine as complements.

Absolutely excellent meal one of our best ever and we are well traveled. Excellent service and not rushed at all. Seasonal farm to table meal so I can state that we had the most unique escargot appetizer ever and my husband had to duck 2 ways and I had the beef tenderloin the house specialty and rosemary creme brulee for dessert all of which may not be on the menu when you may decide to dine at AG since seasonal menu. Please try this restaurant if you are at Niagara Falls Canadian side and I think you will enjoy a phenomenal meal.

Birthday dinner...fabulous, fresh creative food! Level of food quality and service (incredible!) did not match the atmosphere which was just ok. Farm to table dining seems to call for a more hip, modern atmosphere,not a dark basement with dated decor. But once again...food was top shelf!

Wow, wow, and wow!! What a wonderful dining experience this was. Did a little online research on where to dine while vacationing in Niagara Falls after a couple of other poor dining experiences at other restaurants during our stay. This has to have been one of my all time favorite meals and experience ever. I live in the Washington, DC area where we’ve had many amazing meals. AG was the highlight of our vacation. Looking forward to a return visit next year for sure.

The best restaurant in the falls now has one of the best deals in the falls. The steak frites special on Sunday night was fantastic, one of the best we've ever had. Everything we had from start to finish, even the bread, was incredible. Service was great too, can't want to get back.

My date and I enjoyed dinner at the AG at The Sterling on April 22, 2018. My comments are as follows. Many of us have to drive after dinner and having a bottle of wine for two people may represent a larger quantity than is safe for driving. Perhaps your wine choices by the glass should be greater than three whites and three reds even if the wines do come from local Niagara wineries. I had the duck entrée and the duck portion was very large and could have been smaller. Some vegetables and potato or rice or pasta to accompany the duck would have been nice. The chef prepared a vegetarian dish by my request for my date. A vegetarian choice or two on the menu would have been appreciated. We enjoyed our meal.

We had higher expectations for this "farm to table" restaurant. We didn't have a bad meal or bad service, but there were things missing that would make it competitive with similar restaurants in Niagara On The Lake. We would not go back.

Service and food were excellent. As always. There were a couple of noisy kids in the restaurant which is no fault of the AG. Not a place for kids unless they are accustomed to finer dining and maintaining a low noise level. Enjoyed the date night menu with a bottle of wine. Upgraded to the beef tenderloin. After leaving a 20% grat, our bill was approx $200. Worth every penny.

We spent the night at the hotel to celebrate my husband's birthday. I saw that this restaurant was highly rated with good reviews. All of the other "fine dining" restaurants in Niagara are overpriced for what you actually get.
The staff was very attentive and provided great service overall.

Lovely cocktail, we both ordered the tenderloin steak - my husbands came perfect but mine was so over cooked. I don’t usually send food back but I’ve eaten here before and it was always great, so I told the waitress who was delightful, and she took it back. They apologized and asked if they could bring us a glass of wine each , a very nice Canadian Cab, to drink while we waited. We agreed. It was nice and the glasses were also beautiful . The new steak came done perfectly and was great. We ordered a Creme Brûlée for dessert which was delicious and they also treated us to that! I thought that was really nice of them -what more could you ask?

Everything was absolutely amazing!

The food looked amazing and everything was perfectly cooked. The waitress was attentive and very knowledgeable, everything that was brought to us was described in great detail. We will definitely be coming back.
