Niagara is a place full of nice things, and this restaurant is definitely one of the best. It was clean, the service was friendly, and food was GOOOOOOOD. Here you can enjoy a michelin-class dinner with a homemade-restaurant-class bill. I strongly recommend this place.

Savor has it all! From the friendly staff to the immaculately appointed interior all through the menu options and New York State wine selection we were not disappointed. The total for the two of us was quite modest while having three courses and cocktails. The only suggestion is for the bar to be a bit more creative with their cocktail selection to keep pace with the food offerings.

Our food was inedible because it was so salty. I had the "Pig and Fig" pizza, which was drenched in salt. My son had a burger, which he ate two bites of because the flavor was not good. The fries were not fresh either. This restaurant advertises itself as "Farm to Table". This was not evident. The figs were not fresh and the french fries were not either.

This place was great! The atmosphere and service was very nice. The staff was very friendly! The only thing I would recommend is if they could indicate spicy foods on the menu. My meal had good flavor but it was way too spicy, I could barely finish it. Other than that the experience was great!

Nice change from the touristy spots on the strip. Limited, but nice eclectic menu. Had the chef's table near the kitchen which was interesting - until they started noisy food processor for upcoming services. Great, friendly accommodating staff.

Planned dinner after an appointment in NF. Heard about restaurant on TV. Researched menu and read reviews before booking. Very pleased with entire experience. Had calamari, salad, duck, salmon and cheesecake for dessert. All food was awesome. House made ciabatta with compound butter was delicious. Service great! Will certainly go again.

I found out about Savor while at an event nearby for the weekend. We decided to try it out based on a friend’s recommendation and were very glad we did. The 6 of us had such a fun evening sitting at chef’s table by the kitchen. The service was attentive and we enjoyed the food very much. We had a range of ages and culinary tastes and no one was disappointed. The bill at the end was quite reasonable. We will definitely go back.

Food was good but very salty, both my wife and i had the steak, with fries. Ordered diet soda when it was refilled it wasnt diet anymore, but finished it . I do enjoy a great seasoned steak. But like i said this seemed very salty, i have had aged steaks from black and blue well seasoned but not overly salty. Please dont take this as bad thing just not what im used to, i will be back.

My husband and I had our 1st wedding anniversary at culinary institute restaurant Savor. I have to say this place is like a hidden Gem in the middle of Niagara falls NY. When we where looking for a restaurant to dine for this special ocation some restaurants at other Hotels came across our search and then this place caught my eye. The restaurant is inside the Culinary Insititue and students get the chance to have their first Food and beverage work experience here wich makes it even more amazing as they are all loving what they do. Now lets start we where greeted and our coats whete taken to coat check plus5 for that! One thing that throw me off a bit was that i had intended to do a chef table tasting menu but aperantly comunication was not to on point but its ok becuase still this place made up for it every step of the way. We ordered a bottle of wine their wine to be exact the Culinary Intitute 2014 Riesling 😍 great wine, then we ordered our appetizers I had the potato leak soup with truffle oil OMG i almost cried when i finished it, my husband had the shrimp and he was quiet and with a smile the whole time he was eating it. Then entrees their Steak wich is aged right there with an AMAZING wine reduction potatos and carots not only every single component on this dish was perfect the portion is HUGE. Then my favorite part desert everything sounded so good we ended up ordering 3 deserts the chocolates tort with warm ganache, the creme brûlée this was my top pick just wow and the hazelnut gelato yummm we ordered capuccinos and me as a puertorican im scared of ordering coffee most restaurants serve watery coffe but not here here capuccino was delicious 😋. One small tip though you should consider on having a special petifort or small pre desert to give out to special ocations such as Birthdays and anniversaries trust me that small detail from your part totally tops a notch every special ocation table dining with you. If you visit niagara NY go to Savor youll love it!

We have been going since they opened. A little disappointed that they will only feature NIAGARA wines. Whites are good but we drink only red full bodied wines and NIAGARA simply can not produce such a wine. I know many will disagree but we live on the escarpment and have done tastings on the trail. Yet to find one that we can drink.

We were pleasantly surprised by our dinning experience at Savor. Lucas ensured that our service was top notch. The bar tender did a good job of mixing and the kitchen was on par. For a kitchen run by students, the facility did a very good job.

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.

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.
