Truly, we enjoyed our experience. The only issue was we found our sides a little lack luster. My husband found his garlic mashed potatoes were on the cold side and my rice was clumped together and not hot so it felt like it was sitting for a while.

However, we felt the lobster dip, french onion soup, salmon and bacon wrapped filet were delicious.

We had a party of 6 and were provided with a private room, our waitress, Lise was a delight and her service and recommendations were on point. The food was amazing from the apertizers to dessert. We tried three different desserts from the menu and shared them around, all of them to die for.
This is a restaurant that I will be returning to on my next occasion.
I would recommend it to those looking for a delicious experience.

This restaurant completely dropped the ball on the reservation. They had no record of the Open Table reservation. The restaurant was not busy so we had no trouble getting a seat. The message of the birthday did not get through.

Went here to celebrate my sons 12th birthday in Niagara Falls. The food was very average and overpriced- we ordered the biggest dessert with two slices of cake and sherbet- they did not even put a candle in the cake nor acknowledge my sons dinner. Waitress was not good - it was like we were an inconvenience.

We really enjoyed our meal here. The food and drinks were excellent, our waitress did a wonderful job. The decor was really nice and after a long day doing Niagara Falls tours, it was great to sit in comfortable chairs. It is a little bit outside of the main tourist area, located inside the Double Tree hotel, so it was not at all busy.

Our server was absolutely wonderful. My husband and I were visiting in the middle of doing the Whole30 restriction diet, so we had a number of questions, and both our server and the chef were wonderful - incredibly patient and very accommodating. The food was wonderful, and the setting was nice. Bummer the restaurant doesn't have a view of the falls, but the restaurant itself is beautiful nonetheless.

We were impressed by the atmosphere as soon as we walked in. However, we’re disappointed to be told by the hostess that our name was not listed on the reservation list. We had confirmed this reservation through ‘Open Table’ which we were then told ‘Buchanan’s does not have ‘Open Table’ reaervations. She was shortly corrected by another worker.
This would have been a much bigger issue had the restaurant been busier. But there were lots of tables available.
The food was very delicious. The waitress who served us unfortunately did not smile, was very monotone and did not engage with us whatsoever, except to take our order. She was polite enough, but a smile goes a long way!
Would recommend local friends and family to this restaurant for their tasty dishes and cozy atmosphere.

We were disappointed as the reviews I had read were excellent. The service was absolutely fantastic. The onion soup was excellent as well. The green salad was nothing special and the caesar salad was not to par with our expectations. The biggest disappointment was with the 10 ounces NY striploin. We were expecting a nice piece of thick steak. Instead we got a steak that was thin, with not much juices and I asked mine to be medium rare and it was unfortunately more on the medium side than the juicer rare side. The vegetables were your usual ones - two spears of asparagus, a couple of carrots and either mashed potatoes ( they were good), french fries ( seasoned with something they could do without AND they were frozen) or baked potato. All in all not what we were expecting of a " steak" house. Guess we will have to go back to the Keg.
