Hey there I am somewhat new to the Niagara region and I am looking for those hidden gems in the area.
We recently moved from Toronto and one thing I really miss is all the little great places.
We are familiar with Wellington Court, Treadwells, Stone Rd Grille & Casa Mia but would love to hear what people know about this area and the smaller places. We are open to all types of cuisine.
Thanks for all your input
There are a couple of great places, downtown St Catharines, definitely worth checking out. Recently I went to The Office Tap and Grill and had a great meal for an even better price, plus the beverage list is pretty fab. Monday to Thursday they even have no corkage fee for BYOW!
Around the corner, at 288 St Paul Street, is Sahla Thai for authentic Thai in a lovely setting.

Ooohhh, i disagree about Salah Thai. I always found Spicy Thai much, much better and the room is so pretty!
In virgil, the pie plate is the place to go. delish.
good old epicurean in notl is a fallback. and believe it or not, the prince of wales has some pretty good stuff happening, if you can pay hotel prices.
avoid the irish harp in notl at all cost. zest is nice, but zee's, ugh, stay away.
You've covered a few of the good ones already but here's a few more that I think are pretty good..
Mai Vi - St. Paul St. - Vietnamese
Coppola's - Carlton St. - Italian
Bansaree - St. Paul St. - Indian
Carlos Cantina - St. Paul St. - Mexican
Cafe Amore - Marindale Rd - Italian (good desserts but the food is hit or miss, maybe just for coffee and cake..)
