Tide and Vine never disappoints! I’ve been a couple times for brunch and dinner and both menus have amazing meals. The service is always super friendly, they make you feel like they’ve known you forever when you are there. So glad to have this seafood restaurant in Niagara!

I admit I was thrown by the location. We came through word of mouth, and it far exceeded my expectations. We have already told numerous people to go. Every single employee was kind, fun, helpful to our kids, and the food was phenomenal! We will never go to Niagara Falls without eating here now. Well done Tide & Vine!

We visited this venue as I was inspired by the story behind the opening about the owners shucking oysters from a van, added to the fact we live oysters! I totally put my hands up to them and love the progress they have achieved. They don’t tell the story in the front of the menu which I think is a shame because people love a storyline like this. We had very good oysters here (Malpeque) also good clam chowder and Mexican shrimp salad then lobster on risotto, the risotto was very garlicky but very tasty and moorish and plenty of it. The other thing we had was a seared tuna salad which I expected to arrive warm but was ice cold which I didn’t like however it was quickly rectified. The service was a little slow we thought. The location is a little out of town however we agreed that it was worth the trip. I would recommend this place for seafood/shellfish lovers.

We had an amazing experience at Tide & Vine on Sunday evening. There was only 4 different types of oysters left, but they were all delicious and so fresh. We had really great service from Eric and Adam. We were super well looked after and my group had a lot of fun. All of the dishes came out in a timely fashion.

I would not have found this place without Google maps! The appearance is very understated and the inside decor was simple, but the service was outstanding and the food was exceptional. They were out of West Coast oysters, but the selections from PEI and NB were varied and good. The fresh catch was Lake Erie Walleye, which came as a somewhat small broiled filet, served with feta and spinach stuffed morel mushrooms, broiled fingerling potatoes and corn. It was all very good and full of flavor. I had a negroni and my dinner companion had an Irish Ginger (Jameson's, ginger simple syrup, ginger bitters and soda) and both drinks were properly made and very tasty! A hidden gem in Niagara Falls, Ontario!

This place is incredible. Located away from the craziness of Niagra Falls in a shopping center that’s easy to park at. Everyone, I mean everyone was incredible with how they treated us. We have two young kids. They had a special menu for kids that’s not printed. We eat oysters but we’re not super familiar with the different kinds. Our waitress took the time to explain what she knew. The hostess kept coming over and talking to our kids. The manager came over and talked oysters. We had a variety of oysters, and both special from the day. It was all incredible. Their house oysters sauces were great. They also have a solid beer selection of local beers. Place absolutely rocks. It was a great dining experience start to finish!

Fantastic place, the hostess and waitress we had were MORE than accommodating, recognizing that it was our anniversary and giving us some ideas to do in the area - my husband LOVED the raw oysters and we both had lovely seafood dinners. The only thing I will say is that the salmon my husband had, though seasoned well on the skin was pretty bland on the inside. I had the chowder and lobster tail risotto which were great. Highly recommend!!!

Lovely place for dinner, really enjoyed the oysters and lobster risotto. Only downside - quite far out of city centre; need to drive there or take a taxi (which cost us CAD $20 for 1 way)

Fantastic find on our way back to the states. Oysters were about as fresh as we’ve ever had and they had a great east coast selection. Small place so make a reservation, but we were comfortable in casual vacation attire with a family of four including two young boys (which enjoyed their “secret kid’s menu”).
