What a great spot! I'd experienced Tide & Vine oysters at festivals but I'm glad I finally made a point of trying the restaurant. The vibe is relaxed, cool, and unpretentious and it was a busy Friday - seemed like reservations were a great idea. My boyfriend had the Caesar which was garnished with shrimp, jerky, and pickled bean - all delicious and an appropriate side for the cocktail. I had the Dillon's Gin and Tonic which was really refreshing. The shrimp cocktail was fantastic; Alabama Gulf shrimp were plump and flavourful and I could have eaten the cocktail sauce without the shrimp, it was so good. Enjoyed the scallop crudo with cauliflower kimchi. We both took advantage of the Friday special full lobster dinner - fresh PEI lobster meat was as sweet and succulent as it was plentiful. Service was attentive, friendly, and knowledgable - servers made us feel at home and excited to try many of their recommendations. Will definitely be a regular spot when in the Niagara area.

Enjoyed the mussels and clam chowder soup and the only thing was the Surf and Turf which we felt was overpriced as it came with a small lobster tail which was over cooked.

We went for a bday dinner of 6 adults and 2 kids. Impressed with the high quality seafood. We had freshly shucked oysters, seafood chowder, lobster thermidor, scallops with pork belly, grilled whole seabream, beef short ribs. A few of us had cocktails and they were delicious. Atmosphere was great. The server was very friendly with the kids too. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Total bill was close to $500 with tax and tip included.

Hands down one of top 3 meals I’ve had in the last decade. Background, visited 60+ countries, travel industry, and I love trying new places. I consider myself a foodie. This restaurant is off the beaten path but worth its weight in pirate’s treasure. Found it online, and wanted something different. Less than 10 minutes from the Falls. Small, located in a nondescript strip mall, yet excellent. Had a very unique dinner- pickerel (similar to Walleye) Which had paint code encrusted soft-boiled egg, roasted brussels sprouts and more. The menu is not very large but I don’t see how you could have anything wrong here. Simple but not pretentious and an incredible waitstaff. Chris was our server and knew absolutely everything down to all of their unique oysters. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that is in the region. Restaurant is small and simply decorated. Wine choices were nice. Has a full bar. Dinner was so incredible that we had to try dessert. We tried the creme brûlée and chocolate mousse. Do yourself a favor and playing your stay around this dining establishment.

What a let down in every aspect! The place is in a stip mall which should have been the first clue. Guests are being crammed into a tiny little space and we had the luck to get the worst table in the establishment. Our request to change the table was ignored.

An unsuspecting gem in a strip mall! Once seated inside, you forget where you are and are taken in by the simple nautical decor. Good and cocktails are as locally sourced as possible with a great focus on niagara wines. Service was friendly and inviting with a great knowledge of the menu. If you love seafood you will love Tide and Vine.
