About Watermark Restaurant - Niagara Falls

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 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.

I have stayed at this hotel many times and disappointed that it was my first time at the Watermark restaurant. Everything was fabulous, food ambiance etc. One thing I would recommend though is... if you are acknowledging that we are there for a special occasion (in my case my husbands birthday) it would have been nice to see that either a card at the table or a very small desert or just something saying Happy Birthday. Just a thought that would definitely make an impact.

The food was lovely, great ambience and we sat right next to the window with a very pretty view. Drinks were a little on the pricey side, and I ordered a 2nd round of the martini I was drinking and was given a conpletely different dribk the 2nd time. It was still a very tastey drink but not what I was originally drinking lol.
Overall really good experience and they brought me chocolate creme brule for dessert for my birthday and it was soo Good! :)

I guess it wasn't a total loss!

I'll make it short and straight to the point!

Great view, 2 of the appetizers and wine were good. And I'm glad at least we had that, because otherwise it would have been a complete loss.

Mushroom soup and calamari were phenomenal. Escargot was meh, bland and not tasty at all and the rest of the meal was just terrible!

Risotto, was NOT risotto but instead mushy overcooked rice, shrimp on it was bland, we ate 2 of the 3 to say we did. Chicken supreme was not too bad but the sauce and mashed under it was not appetizing at all.

Waitress came to take our plates and took absolute no interest in finding out why 3/4 of our food or more was still on our plates, maybe she already knew what we were going to say and thought it was best to avoid the answer by not asking?!

$55/pp for an appetizer each, which is all that was acceptable to eat is a bit much for most people's price. Then you are hit with the ridiculous bill and you feel even worse about your choice, plus tipping and the ridiculous "tourist tax". We felt like we'd been robbed.

Upon leaving you stand right in front of the "check in" desk and the girls were just too busy chatting away to thank the people leaving, us included.

Saw the manager a few times going to a couple tables, not once did she come to ours or to the tables in our close proximity. I suppose picking and choosing which to great?

The view was great with "mood" music and sufficient without the belting out of the gentleman singing.

Very disappointing, will not go back or recommend it at all.

Date night dinner, service was good, seat & view were excellent. The wine we ordered was very nice, the appetizers were excellent. I had the duck and it was excellent, my wife had the NY steak and it was OK, not the best, but not the worst. However, we both opted for the lobster tail (not included in the meal package), (and no price was indicated), but thought that since this was a special occasion we would enjoy it. This was not the case, we probably both should have sent the lobster back, it looked perfect, but was exceptionally tough and stringy and neither of us particularly enjoyed it, especially at an additional price of $19.95 per tail.
I would not rush back at this point, at least not without carefully considering the menu options.

Escargot starter was simply ok not the best. Seared scallops would have been excellent with a touch less of salt. Chicken in chicken entree had no real flavors, menu did not indicate it was breaded and waiter stated it was pan seared which it did not seem like it with breading.

Great location and view of both Falls; service was excellent as usual. Food was good same basic menu with a slight modification removing some good features. Main dish was not hot, barely warm and cooled quickly so by the time I had three bites it wasn’t even warm. Disappointing. Parking on arrival wasn’t great but with the construction going on it made the garage a backed up mess of vehicles and we were waiting on young valet attendants that seemed a bit overwhelmed. Exiting the garage when the valet brought the car was confusing as nobody told me where to exit due to the construction closure of the main driveway. This was a dinner with visiting family from Australia; she loved the views and the restaurant. Thanks for a nice evening.

My carrot cake cost $14 and tasted like the kids from Schriner's Hospital were on Chopped Jr and the kid with no arms made a carrot cake with his feet. My squash soup was sweet when it should have been savory. Take a good look at the menu. Taste the food. Get some help and some new recipes.

The View of the falls makes this restaurant. The service was great but the food was not prepared well. Ordered the 10oz Steak and they came out cold and over cooked for our Med. Rare order. we sent them back and they brought us very rare steaks that we did not finish. The appetizers and salad were good but the scallops were under cooked. The service and the View made up for this and we still had a great night. It was nice of them to offer us a free dessert to make up for the mis-steak. Would recommend to friends but avoid the steak.

We had dinner here on Christmas Day. It was a nice ambiance with a window table overlooking the Falls. Our server didn't really explain how the menu worked. You could choose 3 or 5 which we thought included the sides. We chose A starter, main, sides and desert thinking that was 5. When we got the bill it showed 2 3 course meals plus extra for sides. A little confusing.
I had the salmon which was a little bland. my husband had the lamb, recommended by our server. We were a bIt disappointed in the experience
