The Watermark elevates guests' dining experiences to new heights with gracious service, inventive cuisine, an extensive wine selection, and stylish design that is only surpassed by the stunning, floor-to-ceiling, panoramic views of both the American and Horseshoe Falls.

Located on the 33rd floor, The Watermark's elegant, contemporary ambiance is reminiscent of the majestic Niagara Falls itself. Our menu is inspired by both local and regional producers from fine crafted Niagara regional wines to prosciutto from a Niagara Falls local artisan. Tim O'Donnell, our Executive Chef, uses fresh seasonal ingredients that transpire into creative dishes.

Our new fixed-price menu allows you to customize your dining experience. Choose either a three-course or five-course option and you decide which courses you want. Prices are based on the number of courses you order.

Seating requests are NOT guaranteed, however we will do our very best to accommodate them

We were staying at the Hilton and went to the Watermark because of the view of the fireworks. Overall the food was just okay but the view is great for the fireworks. My wife had steak which was good and I had salmon that was over cooked but did have good flavor.

A go-to for romantic ambiance and a beautiful view of Niagara Falls. Food was adequate but certainly not as good as the price tag would have you expect. Service and drinks were wonderful.

Went to celebrate husbands birthday. This was our first time here and we really enjoyed it. Our main courses were very good, same as the appetizers, but they were a bit on the smaller size. However they do bring you bread, which was unlimited and very tasty. They offer a 3 for $59 and 4 for $69 menu which I thought was reasonable, but the wine was expensive.
All in all we had a great time, our waitress was very attentive and friendly and our view of the Falls couldn't be beat! Very romantic.

Our anniversary dinner was terrific. They seated us in a great location by the window. The beet salad and fried Brie were delicious starters. We both had the risotto, the flavor was beautiful. The carrot cake and chocolate peanut butter desserts was also delicious. The service from Julia our waitress was outstanding, highly recommend!

A million dollar view of Niagara falls. Our waiter Anthony could not have been any better. We did the 4 course tasting. Starting with Prosecco splits and then having a great Peller cab/merlot blend with our meal. Fabulous!

It was a great experience in terms of view and service. Our server was extremely polite and professional. I ordered the crusted herb chicken and it was a bit dry also something just spelt funny on the plate with the lentil Veggie mix that came with it. My fiance ordered the steak and it was as he ordered it. I had the charcuterie board to start and he got the fried brie. Those were so delicious. The dessert we both got the sorbet 🍨 and it was a bit too sweet but great presentation.

The location simply cant be beat. Watching the falls fireworks show from the 33rd floor is amazing. The food was decent. Ordering game hen and lamb chops raises the expectation level. Those expectations were not met. The location is what makes the restaurant and dining experience, not the quality or "wow" factor of the food.

Amazing view of the falls with a good dinner. For the price it was good at $59 for a 3 course meal. It’s not a $100 steak but well worth the visit all around.

Service was pretty good, the drinks were good, the steak was terrible. I realize this is not a steak house, but the strip steak had so much grisel in it that it was almost impossible to cut. We have been here several times and probably won’t be back.

We went to the Watermark for our first dinner as a married couple after our wedding and it was great. Everyone was very friendly and the food was excellent. Our only complaints were that I had to ask multiple times for my water glass to be refilled (to be fair, I do drink a lot of water quickly) and the tables are pretty close together but we were right against the windows which was the best seating for viewing fireworks so it ended up being okay. We would definitely return and would recommend to others!

Great view of the nightly fireworks display at the falls! Food was way overpriced, bland and mediocre, nothing special in fact. Service was okay except one of my courses was completely forgotten. Not a place I'd go to again for the food.

The view was great, we booked a later dinner time to catch the fireworks. That made it a very unique night. The service was very good, Lisa was very pleasant and attentive. She also brought out a dessert with a candle for my son's 21st birthday. A nice touch!!! Very positive experience from a location and service perspective. The food however was not very good. The chicken was very dry, the pork was dry with zero flavour, the brie was deep fried like a cheese finger not at all something you would expect in a high end restaurant, and the salad was limp and gritty. The wine selection was fair. We eat out often for business/pleasure and this food was not what we would expect for the price.

The menu is very misleading. You must get a three or four course dinner. The food is sub par as you are paying for the view. We were seated in a les than desirable table for two where I had my back to the entire room. We were in a small hallway that had two tables. Definite tourist trap. Stay away.

Excellent views all around - not a bad seat in the house from that perspective. We were there for a special occasion, which they acknowledged upon arrival and gave us a very nice location. Menu had good variety, food pretty well measured up to expectations. Decent wine list. Attentive but not hovering service. Very nice, crisp decor. Recommend stopping off at the bar one flight up before dinner or for after dinner drinks - equally great views of the falls, nice atmosphere and at least when we were there, a terrific bartender/mixologist.
