The food and service were good.The ambience was O.K.The printed menu was stained from previous use to the point that I moved it around with my serviette.It was Sunday night and very quiet which made it good and bad.Not their fault.I think you need a little buzz going on around you.
Always a fantastic experience. Never disappointed.
The location is what allows The Epicurean to charge the prices they do. The service was poor, we sat at the bar and the bartender was friendly, but didn’t know what he was doing and forgot a number of items. When the food came, it was hit, but that’s about it. My wife had the pasta, and for the price it needed a lot of works. I had the 10oz steak, which at best was maybe pushing 6oz; I’d have no issue if the quality and flavour was there. However, the steak had a lot of silver skin and little seasoning, the peppercorn sauce had no peppercorns and was thick like glue.
Great service with timely delivery of delicious food food . Would recommend !
Amazing food. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend. We will be coming back!
We had a lovely meal with great service. Quite a change from our experience at other restaurants in Niagara in the Lake.
Food was great with portions just right. Servers were friendly, attentive and fun
Excellent place, food was amazing! All staff were very friendly and very pleasant!! Will go back again!
The decor and seats can use some improvement but overall a good experience. The food, presentation and service was very good.
It was a delightful dining experience. Hope to try the patio next time!
The back patio is nice, the food we ordered was good and the service was also quite good (our waitress Lorenza was very friendly).
Unfortunately, we realized immediately after paying that they had overcharged us by 33.3%. We asked for a reversal and a recharge of the correct amount, but the server did not have the authority. We were made to wait 1 hr and 15 minutes and then we had to leave (I left my contact info). In the late afternoon, they had not contacted me, so I called them and then went back to the restaurant. I asked that the problem be rectified immediately. The owner informed me that she was unable to void all three charges unless she had the other credit cards. I told her that she had ignored us for well over an hour earler in the day when the issue could easily have been rectified. My friends had had to leave and under no circumstances could they return. I asked her to find another solution, since I found it deeply embarrassing that my friends had been overcharged so much by a restaurant that I had selected. The owner became quite abusive and started to shout at me. I was absolutely shocked. I have never been treated in my town by a business owner this way. I told her that I understood that mistakes can happen and that I did not blame the server in any way. I was only upset with the owner for ignoring us and then treating her customers so poorly. I ended up refunding the amounts to both my friends myself, since the restaurant had not done so as requested. This experience is truly unfortunate, as I like to recommend friends and family to local businesses and I honestly could never recommend this restaurant to anyone again.
Waitress was very friendly and made great recommendations
Relaxing atmosphere for a lovely lunch just steps from great shops. Our new favourite place in NOTL.
What a lovely evening!! Spent dinner with a great friend of mine and the ambiance was so nice! We sat by the lighted tree! Waiters were cute too!! 😉 service was quick and food very delicious!!
Rose was excellent!!
The restaurant was virtually empty, but then we did have an early reservation. The food was good and what we had expected, not gourmet, but well done: salmon, in my husband's case, and pasta for me. Our waitress was outstanding, good recommendations on wines and on the menu.
Fantastic atmosphere and food.
Staff was excellent
The best patio in town. Exceptional service. Large portions.
The food was amazing, we ordered pasta and the portions are big! Crab cakes were a bit overcooked though. But great choice of drinks!
Amazing food!! But they badly needed more lighting on the tables after the sun went down for the tables that weren't right next to the one central lit up tree. It was way too dark to see my food.
Not sure if my last review went thru. The evening was excellent. It was just the little stuff! We were told that the next day was a shopping day and that was why you were out of butter, hot sauce and zhirracha. Your bread rolls were and are delishes - just needed butter. There is a grocery store so close by. Our bill was significant yet all we could talk about was butter and hot sauce.
Good food. Extremely friendly and personal service from Rosemary.
Food was delicious and the service was great!
Food selection was very limited, menus were grubby, service hohum. Not the experience we were used to based on previous visits.
Service was very good.
The Patio dining area was very nice and is a recommended option.
However the food was below what one would expect. The pasta was overcooked and parts of it were not warm.
I found it also too expensive for the food they presented.
Great wine list and menu variety
Great garden patio as well
This is a very nice large patio that is nicely landscaped with trees for shade and a great selection of plants for all seasons. The menu is very adequate for most tastes. The staff were welcoming and attentive. We will eat there again on our next visit to Niagara on the Lake
Food was very average but the service made up for it somewhat. Nice server, average food
Will not go again. Don’t waste your time. Horrible server ruined our night out. She was rude, short and have no knowledge of the menu or wine. I advised I had an allergy which she kept forgetting. Also my main arrived covered in cheese which I’m allergic too. We had dirty plates and glasses on our table almost the whole meal. Lamb was chewy fatty and not worth $55. Crab cakes were good. If you don’t like serving just quit. This horrible service makes this a skip for us. Spend your money elsewhere.
Yummy food..great service and atmosphere ..pricing a little high but portions are worth it.
Andrea our server was excellent! She was attentive but overly. Suggested wine pairing with our food choice. The meal was fabulous. I would definitely go there again when back in NOTL and would recommend to others.
Excellent service and great tasting food.
This was our second restaurant in NOTL and was so ever disappointed. The food was well overpriced for what it was. We ordered wraps, and sandwiches for lunch. The wraps were dry and the sandwiches lacked flavour. The dressing for the salad was utterly too sweet and drenched the dishes. The service was slow and no one checked up on us or bothered to fill our water glasses. The order station was right behind our booth and we can hear the hostesses and servers chatting but they didn't bother to actually serve us. I wouldn't recommend this place for the food or service.
Wonderful service and great food!!
Nice garden patio, good food and impeccable service.
Nice restaurant. Service was great, food was delicious . And much better value then another restaurant we attended.we preferred this restaurant to others we had visited.
It was very hot inside. The air was on the the front doors were open. Food was excellent. It would be nice to have something to cover your wine as there were so many fruit flies I had to keep fighting them off Maybe a coaster
Or cocktail napkin?
Music too loud
Lovely place, warm and inviting. Two large TVs in dining room allowed us to keep up with Olympic news while we ate. Crab cakes were wonderful.
Food was mediocre. Calamari were over cooked and bruschetta was soggy.
Patio was great, nice atmosphere. Food… ehh.. overpriced. French onion soup was decent nothing to write home about. The Roast Beef panini was flat, lacking flavour - for $24
PS - Open table has an old menu on file. We booked based on it but there is a new more narrow menu and 20-30% higher prices
