Tide & Vine Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyed the service and knowledge of the staff
Octopus a little small for the price though
What a neighborhood gem, found it thanks to Open Table reviews. Was told at my hotel that I found a place with a great local rep. The food & service backed that 100%
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Excellent service and amazing food. Chefs are creative and wonderful “food artists “. BYOB allowed with corkage fee. This is a MUST try when you’re in the Falls. Made a reservation to come back with family in January! You will not be disappointed!
Perfect lunch with hubby
Just simply outstanding! these were some of the best oysters we've had in a long time. You must try the Lucky Lime oysters. Service was magnificent. Quality of the food was top notch. Lobster was fabulous. If you have not had the chance, spoil yourself and enjoy a great meal at Tide & Vine
Food was fabulous. Portions small for main courses. Noisy.
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.
6 people dining and only 3 were OK with their meal and service. My wife ordered the lobster tail and risotto. The lobster was overcooked and dry. She sent it back but they still charged us.
Probably would not return.
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.
First time ever I left no tip.
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.
Great food. So delishious. Evening was somewhat ruined when the server forgot one of our Entrees. Dampened the spirit of the evening
Seafood chowder , Tuna Salad , Cooked Oysters 3 ways, Lobster Thermidor were all super.
Service was excellent. Walked out stuffed and Happy.
Lovely, lovely oysters, a selection of 11 different kinds paired with a very good local wine. The saldad was delicious (and I am not one to rave about salads) and my husband's pasta and shrimp were excellent too. The maple bread pudding was delicious and made a memorable finish.
We mistakenly showed up 45 minutes late for our reservation, but they kindly still accommodated us. Food and service were impeccable. We particularly enjoyed the scallop appetizer special and the potted cheesecake with granola. Best meal we had in Niagara Falls.
The chowder soup was absolutely amazing!!! Definitely will be coming back again.
You will need reservations - this place is hopping. Excellent drinks selection, with many local offerings (wine, spirits, beer). Everyone loved their drinks. Amazing oyster selection, but nobody at our table chose to try them. Incredible citrus kale salad - and very reasonably priced for a huge amount, order one to share. Appetizers were a hit, although the (two) scallops were quite small. Mains were excellent: lobster thermidor, surf & turf, lobster tail, etc. The beef short rib (which you can get separately, or part of the surf & turf) was INCREDIBLE. Meat absolutely falls off the bone. A couple people commented that their risotto was perhaps not cooked all the way through, or cold (?) The polenta that came with the surf & turf was ridiculously good. Desserts were also good, although the choc. mousse - while very tasty - was far too dense, impossible to finish. The whipped cream was amazing, but you could do with half the amount. The maple bread pudding was well received by those who ordered it. Absinthe is an interested drink option to finish your meal. Service was excellent throughout, our waiter was very attentive, took his time with us, just the consummate host. Only negatives: (1) the chairs are hard and slippery to sit on (2) the only coffee option is brewed (non-decaf), no espresso or cappuccino options. Prices are not inexpensive, but I feel that it is priced fairly for an "experience" level of dining. It is a small place, so seating +4 might be a challenge. Definitely not quiet dining - if there is a louder group or "gregarious gentleman" in the place, you will know it.
The perfect date night spot for out of town visitors or locals! Friendly service, great cocktails, and a delicious menu.
Absurdely expensive...Not worth it! I do not recommend it at all!
TV:Terrific & Very satisfying!
In town for our anniversary, the food didn't disappoint! We ordered 2 cups of chowder it was so good! The special scallops, pate, shrimp and oyster sampler created a wonderful experience for us(The decor was fun also)
Don't forget the desserts!
Fresh seafood served by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff. Interesting menu, creative preparations, attention to detail and reasonably priced. Brunch is a new addition, and really good; especially if you are yearning for something a little different.
Love being able to visit the 'bricks & mortar' location after frequenting the T&V food truck for the past few years. Ambience is a just a little bare and echo-y in terms of the soundscape... if your dining neighbours are feeling boisterous, you're very stuck with that. The addition of some sound baffling could make the experience a trifle more elegant and less like a beer hall.
Still... definitely recommend!
We love Tide and Vine. We are loyal patrons; never been disappointed!
Had the Lobster Thermador the special for the day. Delicious! On vacation and found this restaurant online. Best meal of iur vacation!
Delicious and fresh seafood! Had an amazing dinner experience with my husband. :)
Fantastic servic, meal and atmospheric. My wife and I will definitely visit again.
Enjoyed a variety of Oysters (excellent) gold shrimp was ok but not worth the price, scallops were great, really great lobster and risotto dish, and the pavlova was just Amazing. Absolutely recommend. Friendly staff.
It was a very tasty seafood and fish dinner. Nice ambiance.
Seriously the best place we have been to eat in Canada! The strip center location seems odd when you park but as soon as you get inside everything is great! Bartender/oyster shucker Chris was awesome! Hope the owner knows how great he is and keeps him around!!! It's amazing! Conversations; oysters; scallops; maple bread pudding !!!! All amazing!!!!
Good food (moderate portions...you won't need a take-home box). It is pricy. The wines and corkage fees are expensive, but the Wednesday "no corkage fee on local wines brought in" is a very nice touch and that was our final incentive to dine at Tide and Vine.
This was our first experience trying oysters and first time at this restaurant. Food was fantastic & the service made the night fun and exciting trying oysters. Highly recommend it.
Great food and great service!!!
Oysters were outstanding, and lobster was amazing. Mushroom risotto was “to die for”!!!
This restaurant is sited about 15 minutes away from the main Niagara sites - but serves fresh seafood and an amazing range of oysters - there were at least 10 different varieties available on the day we visited. They are sourced from as far afield as New Zealand and feature local areas too - New Brunswick, British Columbia and Prince Edward Island. The food was amazing - everything we had was perfectly seasoned and the portion sizes were perfect. My only gripe was the seating at the bar - no tables were available at our time - there are too many seats crammed into the space meaning you are literally best friends with your nearest neighbour - or not as the case maybe - my "neighbour" was a foul mouthed, slightly drunk red neck who despite speaking to his girlfriend on the other side of him, managed to spend an hour shouting in my ear - awful ruined what would have been a lovely evening.
If visiting the Niagara Falls area Tide and Vine is worth leaving the tourist area for. Seafood was very fresh and tasty.
Amazing time here. Freshest oysters I've ever had. Loved the cevechi and lobster roll. Highly recommend!!
I would highly recommend this restaurant as the food was amazing - we tried oysters from places like Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, British Columbia, and New Zealand. The servers knew their information and were very helpful in giving suggestions on what to try. The only complaint I had was the cost of food. My entree was not substantial in any way and the cost was quite hefty. I would suggest going to this restaurant as more of a fun, appetizer place rather than to have a filling meal!
Always a fabulous adventure in local wine and exceptional seafood!! What a gem of a restaurant tucked away in an unassumingly little plaza away from the tourist area madness.
Oysters were unreal!!! Scallops were cooked to perfection! Lobster was a bit over cooked! Go for the oysters and the desert! The chocolate mousse is heaven!! The service was amazing! Loved our server he was a super cool guy who helped us through all of the oyster selections! We will definitely going back!
The mains were disappointing but the apps were very good.
The service was slow and at times we were ignored. When we arrived there was an individual monopolizing the waiters time arranging a booking for a future date. Someone else should have sat us down.
For an expensive dining experience the service flaws seemed exagerated.
Perfect dinner! All f the food which included scallops, lobster and pork were cooked to perfection. Would recommend to anyone living or visiting Niagara Falls. We will be back!!
Very good, oysters and the overall dinner was delicious.
