We had dinner at AG for our anniversary, when we stayed at The Sterling. We were pleasantly surprised to see they had a price fixe menu with lots of options.
• Service was fantastic (very attentive)
• Food was delicious (even the butter!)
• location was intimate and modern

The wait between courses was somewhat long as it took approximately over 2 hours for to complete a 3 course meal. However, the meal we had was very good and the peach pound cake desert was fantastic and highly recommend it.

Was disappointed that AG has adopted a “prix fix” menu with appetizers mains desserts etc. The quality of the food was good but I much prefer the old a-la-carte menu structure. They seem to be far more focused on packages to hotel guests, which is fine, but never having stayed there I found the menu constructed more to suit a package holiday than fine dining. Overall the meal was good, but it was not at the outstanding level I had come to expect.

We went for cocktail hour, the bartender was amazing, she was very friendly, when we went to to be seated for dinner ( for our 5 year wedding anniversary) we were sat next to a closet, our server wasn’t very friendly or attentive. You would think an upscale restaurant like this would try to make your night better for our special occasion. The fact we got charged for our side of vegetables after paying $59 each person for a so called 3 course meal, even with a gift certificate of $150 our bill was still $108 we didn’t even order dessert. The apps were not very good, some cabbage slaw and green cauliflower not very well seasoned. The main dishes the beef was cooked perfectly and my husband had scallops which he got charged $9 extra when it should have been included in the 3 course meal option, clearly the server didn’t explain the menu very well as well the menu was very limited. All in all not the best dining experience

We stayed at the Sterling Inn & Spa in Niagara Falls 9/11-9/13. We were so glad that we chose to have dinner at the AG restaurant the day we arrived. It was one of the best meals that we have had in a long time. The food was exceptional. The service was outstanding. The price was a little expensive. But, you did not leave the restaurant hungry. We enjoyed the 3 course meal. My husband & I chose different entrees for each course. All six choices were very good. A special thanks to Nick, our server. He was very personable & treated us like very special guests.

My second time here; both were outstanding. Everything is well-prepared, with many local ingredients, and service is superb. This is by far the best restaurant in the Western NY/Niagara area. And price is reasonable for the quality. I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly.

We were very impressed with this restaurant. It was rather refreshing to find farm to table restaurant that not only had excellent service but the ambiance and food was top notch.
They start out with a drink cart at each table featuring a fe wof hteir signature cocktails.
They offer a 3 course dinner now with a good variety in each course to wet your appetite. What I loved most was the service and the fact that it was not rushed. They waited ample time in between each course before presenting you with the next course. We would definitely go back again.

Agree it's hard to find, but so worth it. The chef is so talented, interesting flavors, great combinations of seasonings. Our waitress was spot on, just attentive enough without being in the way. My husband had the quail, nicely crisp but not dry. Veggies were so fresh and full of flavor. I had the duck, 5 slices of breast cooked just as I had ordered, and a leg and thigh confit. Best duck I've every had. We shared the gelato for dessert and it was light but exploded with flavor. Good thing this restaurant isn't in our town, I'd be broke and way overweight! We seldom have a real dining experience any more, but AG's delivers. JUST GO!

This was the worst food I have had in a long time. We literally left without even having the desert although we paid for it. And boy did we pay... $300 for 3-person dinner with only one glass of alcohol. I live in NYC. I travel to France routinely and I am somewhat of a foodie and the quality of food absolutely offended my taste buds. Not to mention we had to wait for an hour and twenty minutes. Do not go to this place. I can’t stess this enough. And it’s in a basement of some building in the middle of the tackiest noisiest spring-break like place. Just go to Niagra on the Lake and pick something there.
