The dishes were presented in a timely manner. The food was amazing, seasoned and cooked to perfection. The winter squash bisque was the best that I have ever had. I love that the food came with an explanation of ingredients and flavour.

Food was delicious. Our server was good, she was there when she needed to be there. One of the food runners was great and went over and beyond. She noticed we were celebrating something and asked if we wanted our photo taken. She was polite and kind. I wish we got her name so I can actually name her out but unfortunately I did not.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening - the atmosphere, service and food were all top notch. The dishes were all creatively designed and beautifully plated. Every course was delicious and has inspired us to be even more creative with our own cooking! We will be back!

Tasting menu was not worth the price. Soup was very good. Tenderloin was disappointing...brie and almond topping dominated instead of complimented the flavour of the steak and the au jus was bland. Dessert was disappointing too...the pumpkin spice latte creme brulee was too spicy overwhelming the flavour of pumpkin. The brownie was dry and bland. Overall, I wasnt impressed for a restaurant that bills itself as one of Ontario's best fine dining establishments.

This was not our first or second visit to AG and it let us down
The menu was too limited and not inspiring - beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection but the presentation was not - served on mashed potatoes with limp spinach
The Deer was a little tough and not to our tastes
The cheese platter ( at a supplement of $4! ) was not good value at all
2 different cheeses with stale crackers and crumbled - not whole or halved - but crumbled walnuts - very uninspiring to say the least

Over rated restaurant. Uneasy to find.
Ambiance almost classy BUT some people let notifications whatssapp ON all along their meal and others facelive while dining...service was correct but not as classy as the ambiance and my deer arrived while i was eating the liver terrine. Deer was OK but why calling the side "cassoulet" (????- nothing to see with, except a few beans), the LIVER terrine btw was excellent. Pumkin dessert was ok. Would appreciate to have the choice between small and large glass of wine. Sparkling wine was very good, cabernetsauvignon to much fruity for my taste. But the worst TRAP is the supplements on numerous choices in the menu wich is supposed to be a fixed price @78Can. Not fair.
Over all Good , but do not expect too much ....

Did not like the waitress telling me the percentage of my tip after leaving a decent one. She thinks you tip on taxes and fees. I tip on service and food. We mentioned we on our anniversary when booking and nothing noted on our stay. So don't expect a candle or anything. Food was ok but the value wasn't there. Doubt we will return. Place was cold and not romantic at all.

Awesome food and awesome service. Price is reasonable for Niagara Falls food. We had the luge, soup, and snails for starters and they were excellent. The Pork Belly and Duck Confit was to die for. The Cheese plate and gelato flight were perfect endings. In the future would come with more people to try the other dishes that they had on their menu.

The food was absolutely incredible however I have to say, the service is a big part of an experience and I have to say, without our Server Mel, it would not have been near the amazing dinner we had. She was just phenomenal. I'd go back here for sure.

Went here due to the high rating online. Made a reservation and had to put credit card down. Arrived and immediately questioned our decision to come, area and building were run down. Food attempted to be “fancy” but seemed more like a toddler threw things together. The snail dish had many elements that did not compliment each other, including stale frozen puff pastry. The red deer entrees was a mixed of what felt like left overs from the kitchen. The pork belly was good, but the addition of lamb sausage was strange. The desserts were terrible, store bought and stale. This was an expensive meal and would not recommend.

AG offers original cuisine that is fresh and exciting. Although the entrance and frontage is a bit unorthodox and, frankly, a little off putting, once inside the restaurant proper it is modern yet still warm and inviting. The red deer was superb as was the escargot appetizer. The creme boule desert could have been tastier and the apple tarte was disappointing. The wine and martini were first rate.

The food was well presented at the table by the knowledgable server, and the servers were friendly, as a retired chef I appreciated the way the food was cooked to perfection and the way it was visually plated. A very good meal for my wife and myself for our weekend in Niagara, will will visit for sure on our next trip.
