We rode the boat to dinner and arrived earlier than our reservation but Adam sat us anyway so we could get done before it got too dark out. We sat on the patio outside overlooking the river and with view of Niagara Falls. Even though we live across the river we felt like we were on vacation. This restaurant along with every other in our area is experiencing a staff shortage so they did very well with what they have. Better than most places actually. Adam, who sat us and waited on us also made our drinks which were fantastic. Menu is small but something for everyone. My wife had salmon, I had a giant burger and my two teenage boys each had their own pizza. All cooked perfect. Surprisingly we were served pretty quick and definitely hope to be back again before the boat gets put away. This year we were turned away more than we were able to get in due to the on going worker shortage so that was disappointing but not the restaurant’s fault. Hope the best for this and the other establishments and that things get back to how they were soon.
My wife and I made reservations and the restaurant wasn’t even open
Great view and the service was very nice even with limited staff!
Poor service, one very raw hamburger, and smoking should never be allowed on the patio.
Birthday dinner! Our waitress was great!! She had a large party but still was very tentative to our table. Warm and friendly. Atmosphere was beautiful!!
Our server was excellent
And a beautiful view
The pasta was clearly pre-cooked, so the meal wasn’t great but the server was fantastic!!
The restaurant was very nice and had a great location. It was peaceful to have a conversation but still had a great atmosphere.
Service was just ok
Lots of bugs outside
Like an expensive Applebee’s
We had a wonderful lunch after spending the day sight seeing in Niagara Falls! I would recommend this restaurant to travelers and anyone!
Restaurant wasn’t even open. Not sure why we were able to make a reservation if they were closed. The girl at the desk who was not very pleasant said they haven’t been open on Mondays in forever. They should probably update their hours.
The restaurant was not what we expected. The pasta tasted like it was reheated from yesterday. Outdoor dining was not available.
Great food, great views, great atmosphere but service was kind of slow both times I dined at Bella Vista Ristorante. I still enjoyed my visit and would go back for sure!
This survey forces you to rate all items. Should have a "not applicable" response. I was forced to rate the food, for example, even though we did not order. Having discovered this restaurant and the fact it offered outdoor dining on the Niagara river we were excited to try.
We made reservations for 7:15, arrived shortly after 7pm, and after a few minute wait were seated on the patio slightly before our 7:15 reservation time. At 7:30 pm we were delivered napkins and silverware. At 7:45, half an hour after our reservation time, we sat waiting, ignored, without so much as a glass of water or an apology. We were seated at a table right near the door where the server had to frequently enter and leave the patio so he knew we were there. At that point I was in no mood to wait further, so we got up to leave. The server who checked us in was standing behind the bar and watched us walk out without saying a word. I guess the $100 tab the three of us would have generated with dinner and drinks was not enough for them - I guess they make too much money already.
Would not go back unless hotel the restaurant is in changes management
Beautiful views of the river at sunset, food was great. The room was a little too bright, lighting and the chairs was like a conference room.
While the restaurant is located in a hotel lobby, you will have people coming and going to the pool and whatnot, I recommend this place highly. The food was great, the view is amazing, and the service.. oh boy the service.
Adam was my waiter. We let him know it was our one year of marriage, and he went well above and beyond to make it special. He gave us a wonderful seat between the fireplace and the windows. Adam also recommended a wine that we enjoyed so much we finished the bottle. The website says they are open until 10, but they actually closed at 9. Adam made us feel very welcome and let us hang out while also conversing with us and having a great time even a little after close. He was very good at staying busy and getting things done, while also making us feel welcome and at home.
Overall, this was our second visit to Niagara, so we had to come back a second time. I will definitely make this a stop every single time we are in the area.
Valentine’s Day dinner. Originally put requested notes 3/4 weeks before the reservation to be by the window to look at the water but was seated somewhere else... however they were able to accommodate my request and move me to the seats. Great view, settle music and atmosphere, great food selection, and reasonable pricing. However our server blonde hair glasses was slow, and had to repeat and wait on requests simple as napkins and refills. We also were able to overlook the doc and water. But in the room in front with these glass windows this couple had their masks off and the lady took off her heel and kept rubbing her bare feet and picking on the nails which wasn’t pleasant while we were eating. Despite those couple mistakes I would still recommend the place & would go back.
Great menu, very well-priced and the service was outstanding! What a hidden gem this restaurant is! Highly recommend.
We absolutely loved the food and service here; however, the ambiance was a little lacking. We went at 7pm and the lights were so bright in the restaurant, I felt like I was in a classroom. A little mood lighting goes a long way! That’s truly my only critique. The stuffed figs, bolognese, and Heathbar cheesecake were phenomenal! We’ll definitely be back when return to the area in the summer.
All around it was a good night out!
Loved it ! It’s such a beautiful place over looking the river. Enjoyable in winter and I bet you come spring and summer. Loved the food, service, everything !
One of the meals ordered was awful. It tasted sour. It was a pasta dish and after only one bite taken we told the waiter and he did nothing about it besides say sorry. I would not recommend this restaurant.
Great food, great service, great views. Once the flagship or the Treadway Inn.
Great dinner! Wonderful service, best pizza around.
Would def go back--esp. during better weather--when the outside patio can be enjoyed -for the view of the river!! Everything was A-Plus--minus a couple of hiccups-but were corrected!! Our waitress was exceptional!!
Our experience was wonderful , the food was outstanding , the chef is definitely gifted!
Walked into restaurant and no one was working. Was confirmed for a 715 reservation
Happy hour meeting was perfect! The charcuterie for 2 was perfect for 3 ladies. Wine was delicious. Service could not have been better!! Adam, you deserve a raise! Your service was spot on. A lovely afternoon/evening in a beautiful river venue.
Everything about our meal and experience there was great. Our waitress was very efficient and polite. We were there for the Sweetest Day menue and now we cant wait till next year.
We went on Sweetest Day for the dinner for two special. The food and service were the best we had any where since the pandemic. Cannot wait to go back to try other items on their menu.
Great view, food and service! I will be sure to visit again !
Food and service as always was excellent. Both dinner and dessert were cooked and arrived to our table in a timely matter and tasted great. I love their steak pizza and our server was super attentive and sweet. 10/10 would recommend and will be back soon
The pork wood fired pizza was perfectly cooked along with the chicken pesto pasta. The outdoor seating at night was pleasantly quiet
The food and service was amazing! We will be back.
Love the view and food!
Outdoor seating is amazing!! Chicken pesto was good as well as their Cheese board w great views
Great food and view!
with Covid was looking for an outdoor venue and this hit the spot. directly on the river with a large covered deck. Good service and view. One of the better meals we had while visiting the area. worth the drive
The outdoor seating offers a spectacular view and although the staff is trying hard, the service is sketchy. Biggest complain is quality of the salads. Chopped salad is nowhere like an actual salad and looks and tastes exactly like the Greek salad. The pasta dishes are a disappointment. Noodles stick together and not tossed properly with seasoning.
Two female waiters, I wish I got their names, were outstanding on Sunday Sept 6 evening. The greatest asset for any restaurant are its staff. Thank you.
