Niagara Falls Restaurant
I am going to Niagara Falls this weekend for some wine tastings. I wondered if anyone could suggest a place for dinner. We are staying right downtown, and as far as I can tell everything around there is fast food "Boston Pizza". I am looking for a romantic, quite out of the way spot. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Good luck with this one. We were there for the first time last year. I assumed there would be plenty of upscale places, so didn't ask for recs. Could find nothing but fast food and chains. Maybe we missed something...
I had dinner at the Sushi& Oyster resturant in fallsview casino.. for me, that is as best as I could find in Niagara...
Queenstong Heights Restaurant. I haven't been in years but it was excellent back then. Great view. Only good as long as light allows though.
Try driving down to Niagara on the Lake.
Buttercupv, you won't find much right in Niagara Falls. Your best bets would be:
-AG, at the Sterling Hotel;
-Casa Mia Ristorante; or,
If you are willing to drive 20 minutes, your range of places opens up substantially. Queenston Heights is a nice suggestion. Zest in Fonthill and Wellington Court or Treadwell in St. Catharines are all excellent. Stone Road Grille or Charles Inn in Niagara-on-the-lake are both great.
I think Gourmando knows both chefs - so I'll step in here to allow him to be diplomatic.
First, you can't go wrong with either! They're both excellent.
I find the winelist at Treadwell to be better. The food is excellent at both, but the atmosphere at Treadwell is more 'fine dining' - it's more casual at Stone Road.
My strategy would be lunch at Stone Road and Dinner at Treadwell!
[Actually my real strategy is to fly out of Buffalo - the prices are often less than 50% of YYZ. So I drive down, stay overnight in Buffalo and dine at one on the way down, and the other on the way back - the choice depending on my departure/arrival times. Even with the motel I can sometimes pay for the meal(s) and still break even].
