The chowder is a must! Same for the Dynomite Oyster appetizer If the scallop appy is on the daily special, go for it. You won't be disappointed. Lastly, save rooms for dessert, lots of homemade items to choose from. Excellent service, thanks to Kate and team.

Service was excellent- casual and very nice chatting with server. The restaurant serves local beers and wine and seafood which is also Regional, which I appreciated as well- all very good especially wines from Ravine Vineyard. The specials were prepared nicely- nothing too out of the ordinary but well done. The menu isn't huge but to be expected when specialize to fresh local ingredients. A great night out with friends!

Excellent service. The scallop appetizer was amazing. Mussels good size but the portion too small. Prices were more like downtown Toronto prices and too high for the type of restaurant it is.

Wonderful 'hole in the wall' restaurant very out of the way from the rest of the hustle and bustle associated with the falls. Lots of ambiance and unhurried atmosphere and the wait staff are extremely accommodating and attentive. Will be my 'go to' seafood place whenever visiting the falls.

Food was delicious for brunch and Kaitlin was exceptional as our server. There was a couple with children seated close to us who were very loud and it made for some disruptions; children crying etc, but overall a great dining experience. Not my first time and won’t be the last :)

Staff was very accommodating in spite of the inability to modify my OpenTable reservation. Food and drink were fantastic as was the “all hands on deck” service we received. Food was fabulous and definitely ranked among the best we had during our stay in Niagara Falls region. We’ll definitely go back next time in town but might re-think the OpenTable app in the future and resort to a telephone reservation.

My boyfriend and I drove an hour to Niagra for our anniversary. I looked up best restaurants in Niagra and the reviews for this place were really good. We went and it was spectacular. My boyfriend had the Sinister Minister pale ale which he raved about and I had their Tide and Vine wine. We had caesers later on which were amazing. We shared the scallops and pork belly which was fantastic, the oysters tasted so fresh, and we also shared the lobster feature that was to die for. Probably the best meal of me and my boyfriend's life. Everything is pretty pricey but it is well worth it. The service was also wonderful. Everything came out fairly quickly and the staff was all very nice, helpful, and knowledgeable on seafood. Would absolutely, highly recommend. 10/10

Excellent oysters. Very friendly staff. I had a memorable. lobster tail and mushroom risotto, which I can enthusiastically recommend. My wife thought that the broth in the curry seafood soup entree too mild but that the seafood itself was perfectly cooked.

Visited Canada for a few days which was wonderful especially seeing the magnificent FALLS. But the most memorial part of the trip was the Tide and Vine dining experience. The fresh oysters were totally amazing...by far freshest and best I ever had!! The service by Julianna was also the best I ever had. Her knowledge of the menu was only exceeded by her friendly manner. The main courses were delicious...grilled lobster and baked scallops were shared. Each bite was a tasty celebration. Finished the meal with maple pudding, which was also was a mouth watering experience. The restaurant is small but delivers a BIG punch in taste, presentation, and service. I highly recommend Tide and Vine. The beer list was extensive...making it hard to decide. And...that is a problem remedied by a few samplings.

After reading great reviews about this place we decided to try it with our 3.5year old twins. What a fantastic place - very accommodating with food for our girls, and setting us up with a table big enough that the girls could amuse themselves whilst we had great seafood.
Definitely a must if in the Niagara area.....luckily we had a car, & could drive to the restaurant. Not easily accessible for tourists.
A hidden gem

We were in The Falls for meetings and wanted to get away from the big box resto’s and avoid the numerous tourist focused places to eat there. Tide and Vine is a gem and the people there were wonderful. The oysters were fresh and flavourful with a good variety. We had the three-way cooked oysters and that was a big hit for both of us. The mains were creative and well prepared and the service was excellent.

Yummy yummy. The chefs mixture of six cooked oysters were outstanding. Steamed clams in white wine was delicious. The steamed whole 1.75 lobster with garlic smashed potatoes was delicious. My husband had the lobster tail with mushroom risotto. It was good but he felt he should have went with the whole lobster. Wished they offered some green salads on the menu to go with the seafood, otherwise all was great. Friendly waitstaff and great service. If in Niagara Falls, go find this place. It’s off the beaten path and you won’t be disappointed .
