Was very good. Only complaint would be my wife who is pregnant cannot drink and there were very few non alcoholic options. For a restaurant of this calibre I feel a non alcoholic cocktail list would be helpful. Everything else was great.

The food is outstanding! Kitchen prepares the most delicious steak and seafood. They're cooked perfection with an abundance of flavors.

Staff knowable about gluten.

We will be back again and again.

Totally loved the rustic atmosphere, the cozy tables. Complementary appetizer of bread and scallion sauce was amazing, the carrot soup was absolutely delicious and so was everything else right up to dessert which topped up a fantastic evening . Super friendly service, everything was extremely enjoyable. Would definitely return for an encore evening!

We have never been disappointed whenever we come here. The fish was cooked to perfection and the lamb just melted off the bone. Apps of soup and mussels were a pleasant start to our meal.

Sat near front door and cold draft felt as ever guest entered. One of our meals was a tiny bit too salty, but overall a very enjoyable experience and we will return.

Second time visiting and it was just as good as the first time, which was in the fall on 2019. Would recommend this place to my friends and definitely will return.

Catching up for dinner with a good buddy. He has never been, so I booked reservations. Server was attentive. Food was awesome (as always). Crispy shrimp special feature was outstanding. Just a 'touch' of 'zing' at the end of eat bite. Portions were generous for both our caesar salad and our mains. My friend says he plans to come back and bring his wife on his next visit. A great night.

We visited Just Cooking for a birthday. It was delightful. Service was excellent as was the ambiance. I was thrilled that my choice for this dinner was so positive. The menu is diverse and our choices were exceptional and enjoyed by all. Great food nicely presented. What a gem here in Niagara and not too far to drive from Fonthill. Will definitely be back weather permitting. If closer would be our VERY frequent dining place. Open Table is a great service.

Great food and service. If you don’t see it on the menu just ask. I wanted a simple garlic pasta which the server accommodated readily. Server refilled water glasses and bread without being asked. Prices are very reasonable for quality of food. Kudos to the chef!

What a lovely little restaurant! I love the rework on the walls, especially the pieces for sale. What a great idea for local artists.

I have eaten here 5 times before and everything was excellent. This time 3 of the 4 of us were disappointed in our meal. I don't know if they have a new chef or what happened. It wasn't because they were too busy. It sure wasn't up to standard.

Lovely ambiance. Excellent service. Food was okay but not as good as last visit. Soup had no flavour and chicken in the pasta was over cooked.

Fortunately, this restaurant is about a 7-8 minute drive from our house. We always find the food excellent, service can range from very good to excellent depending on how many diners are there at the same time as us. Their new expansion added many seats to the original building and it seems to have worked out well for all, so it is easier to get seats/reservations.
We invited some friends to join us and everyone agreed the food we chose was excellent, especially that nights, features (wild mushroom & smoked bacon soup, rack of Lamb...).
Please note that this restaurant is two stories with the main parking lot and the bathrooms at the lower level and the restaurant at the main level, so stairs are required for anybody using either convenience.

Delicious delicious, the chowder was so full of clams and bacon and thick.
The home made bread with flavoured oil was also a hit with us.
Both mains were also delicious and great presentation, with generous portions.
No room for dessert but there is always next time.

My family and I have met at Just Cooking 6 times, and can honestly say that we have had excellent service in very nice surroundings, and we all agree that the food is excellent. Hope the Restaurant is around for years to come....

We came for New Years Eve, although this was not our first time at Just Cooking. The scallop appetizer was overpriced for only 2, the lobster was barely warm compared to the vegetables it was served with. It was disappointing because we have never had this experience in the past:(
We should have ordered from the regular menu...
