Always great, a must experience. They were clsoed for the day they booked, opened up and honored our reservation. my fourth experience here, it's always a different menu. Expensive but worth it!
Great meal, service and value. hands down recommend the restaurant and the chef tasting menu.
Everything was done superbly.
Amazing as always. Can't wait to go back again. Loved the new Chef's tasting menu. Always changing it up and gets better every time.
Great food + great atmosphere.
This restaurant came recommended by the B&B we were staying at and it was a wonderful night out. The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. Several days later, I can still describe some of my favorites bites from that night. We also had several allergies and they were very willing to accommodate. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to any serious foodies and cannot wait to dine there again on another visit to Niagara on the Lake.
Venison was delicious. Friendly, attentive service. Was a lovely quiet spot for 2.
Great tasting menu showcasing Niagara region. Comparable to a Michelin star restaurant.
Just wonderful food & staff! Great evening!
Backhouse is our go-to restaurant of choice when we want a fine dining experience and when entertaining. Although we have dined there dozens of times, Chef Ryan and his staff have never failed to present us sething new and unique ! Service has always been exceptional!
We have been to Backhouse several times now and every time it's been a different menu, and every time it has not disappointed. The food and service are always excellent and, as a major bonus, everything is locally sourced and truly farm-to-table. One of the best restaurants in NOTL!
Outstanding in every way!! Fantastic food, wine pairings and creative presentation. Staff were extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
Outstanding on every level! Superb service and food that was innovative and delicious, on par with some of the best meals we have had, including at restaurants with Michelin stars.
I found the pricing high. Also the pace of the food was a bit slow. While you don’t want to be rushed through a meal, we were about 1.5 hours before the “main” arrived. So I found I was very hungry through most of the meal which impacted on my overall enjoyment.
From the moment you arrive, to the moment you leave it is such a pleasure to walk/eat through the chefs menu along with the pairings. Absolutely Delicious!
Amazing from start to finish. Great food, great pairings. Service impeccable! Can’t wait to come back
What a wonderful experience! Kim our server was outstanding! the food was outstanding. Couldn't ask for a better evening.
There's a lot to love about Chef Crawford's restaurant; he sources his food locally and proudly from his own farm, he butchers and prepares his own meats, the menu is always evolving seasonally, the staff are attentive and personable and the atmosphere is relaxed. With this caliber of dining, you'd expect black ties, but everything about backhouse is unpretentious, inviting, and comfortable. It's so... Canadian. I encourage anyone who is looking for a memorable "cool cuisine" dining experience to check backhouse out.
This is a great spot in NOTL with beautifully created dishes. We used to go when it was Stone Road Grill. It was my favorite then and I’m loving the new set up/transformation. My husband and I were there to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. No one acknowledged it which was a bit disappointing. We made it in during a snow storm rather than cancel our reservation so if asked if it was worth it...yes, yes it was.
Wonderful experience, enjoyed sitting at the bar watching the food preparation. Food was delicious!
What a great find! The service is amazing along with the food, a must try
Amazing dining experience. We sat at the counter and got to see the chef's at work. They were able to converse with us about what we were eating and how it was prepared. I definitely recommend the tasting menu as every course that came out was unique, well thought out and delicious. The ambiance was cozy, with wood fire ovens and fur throws on the chairs. A must try!
We have been a few times now and always enjoyed the food. So much fun anticipating what is coming next on the tasting menu.
Our biggest issue is the uncomfortable chairs. It has come up in conversation on every visit. In fact, my husband even said he should bring a cushion before we left the house.
Other than that, always a great dining experience.
We did the chef’s tasting menu. For Niagara region the food was impressive. I would place the food just on par with tasting menus in major cities but not superior. The service was excellent.
We had a lovely dinner at Backhouse- would highly recommend. The food was amazing and the service was great. The tasting menu had delicious food and the wine pairings were phenomenal.
Food was fantastic as always, service was horrible.....if you're going to go, sit at the bar and you'll have a great time
The staff and kitchen were amazing in accommodating my food intolerances.
Great tasting menus with locally sourced ingredients. If you’re feeling experimental try one of their bespoke bottles created for the restaurant by locally wineries. Fantastic.
Lovely surprise on entering the restaurant as the outside gives no indication of the lovely ambience inside. The staff were all very attentive and pleasant.
Whilst the food was quite nice and mostly presented in an innovative way, it wasn’t as delicious as I expected to find a tasting menu. In particular there were three dishes that involved bread. The egg and soldiers, the sourdough and the mousse.
Overall it was an interesting experience.
2nd anniversary spent here. The food is amazing and the service is flawless.
Great dining experience.
