Food was amazing. My wife mentioned that I had a perma-smile while eating my steak.
Gustavo, our host, was helpful and knowledgeable with his suggestions.

This food was sooo good. It’s in the NFCI Building and has students as cooks and servers and it creates a cool atmosphere where everyone seems really passionate about what they’re doing. There’s also the wine shop run by the school right next to the entrance for savor and they do tastings there.

We enjoyed it so much we went twice in the same day. We are never wow'd by any restaurants but this was amazing. The red wine braised short rib was delicious.

Our choices may have been part of our issue with the food. The Bruschetta appetizer was excellent but some of our other choices were not prepared as we expected. Overall the experience was worth it and worth trying again.

This was one of the best meals we have had in recent years. The service was excellent - just the right pace, professional, but friendly. The food was absolutely delicious. My husband said he could have eaten his fish entrée again and my chicken was beautifully cooked with a good choice of vegetables. The desserts were wonderful and we would have paid double the price for them. The tables were nicely spaced out so that we didn't have to listen to other diners' conversations. Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant and we both wish we lived nearer so we could make regular reservations here.

My wife and I went here for New Years Eve dinner and to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. My wife told me that this was the best food she has ever had in her life. The food was absolutely amazing, fresh, cooked perfectly, complex wonderful flavores. The ambiance was perfect, not loud but not uncomfortably quiet. The tables are placed perfectly apart and there are just enough tables that our server could be and was extremely attentive. Can't say enough great things about this restaurant.

I am so happy to write this review! My dinner at Savor was absolutely amazing. The food, service and ambiance were outstanding. It felt really cool to support the culinary school students and they truly provided us with the most amazing food! My new favorite restaurant!

One of the best restaurants I've ever visited. Anywhere. Period. The food was incredible, the staff were exceptional and the location (a five-minute walk to the Niagara Falls overlook) is perfect for sight-seers looking to end their day on a high similar to the awe of seeing the falls. A meal like ours would easily cost twice as much in any major city, and would normally be served by pretentious staff in wee-tiny portions. At Savor, the world-class food is only slightly more expensive than higher-end chain restaurants, comes in servings that will leave you full and is served by the friendliest, most welcoming folks I've ever met in a high-end restaurant. The place is beautiful, too, complete with an open kitchen layout, and they said that in the summer they open it up for outdoor sidewalk patio seating, as well. Really, if you ever find yourself anywhere near Niagara Falls, or if you live anywhere in Western NY or that nub of SE Ontario, make a reservation and experience Savor for yourself. I know that if we ever go back to the area (hopefully during summertime next time!) we'll definitely be returning!

We were there for a birthday party. Everyone enjoyed their food. One of our party had a food allergy and the restaurant was very accommodating. Our only very small complaint; the waitress did not explain the dinners as well as we would have liked... and we had to keep asking for drinks. Bartender was great. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable experience.
