Everything about this farm to fork restaurant was outstanding!!! The food was outstanding and the wait staff (Kelly) always available but did not make you feel rushed. Well worth the trip to this little gem of a restaurant.

We have been to AG twice in the span of five years due to it being 600 miles from home. If it where closer it would be a weekly dining experience and bankrupt us. The prices are high but worth every penny. The mussels where the best I have ever had as was the pork chop I had as an entre. The portions where large enough to fill me up and it takes a lot to do that. The service was the best I ever had the wait staff was professional and friendly. I look forward to returning to the falls so I can eat at AG.

The four of us tasted each dish, white fish, smoked Chicken, double pork chop and confit of duck leg. the fish, chicken and pork chop were all succulent as were the accompaniments. Duck was delicious but a little dry and chewy. Desert and appetizers fresh and delicious. Ambience was excellent. Would definitely return for special occasions.

All around Amazing. The food was so fresh and a treat for your taste buds. Farm to table feature menu with wine pairing a must however the corn tart was my favorite. Made me wish we had another night in the area could go back for more.

food, service are outstanding! I am not going to say this is a kid friendly place but they got us a private room since we brought a 2 yr old and that was very good so my baby won't be bothering any of the customer dining outside. services are great would definitely visit again! A++

Great farm to table restaurant in the middle of the tourist part of Niagara Falls. Food, cocktails, and presentation is top shelf. This is a great find if you want to have a good meal and be away from the tourist traps (i.e. Skylon)

This is a gourmet chef inspired farm to table restaurant. The corn and pea tart was featured for the season as nd was absolutely delicious. The duck.in cherry sauce was excellent as well of the horseradish encrusted salmon. Service was attentive.. The restaurant is off the beaten path on the basement of the Sterling Inn.

We came to Niagara Falls for our Babymoon and ate dinner at AG after reading great reviews. Our experience definitely exceeded our expectations. The food was AMAZING - beef tenderloin and venison with chocolate torte to finish. Our server was very nice and helpful. There was even great live music! Would highly recommend eating here for a special occasion and its a little bit away from the crowds.

I stumbled upon the restaurant because my hotel had a binder of the menu in the rooms. I didn't find it until 8pm on a Saturday night, so I figured my chances of getting a reservation were between slim and none. But when i was given a spot for 9pm, I took it. The decor was stunning. Dim and romantic. Great place date night or special occasion. They had music playing that was also great, a duo named Tuscany. Because I was so late, the 3 course dinner special was sold out. But the individual items I ordered were all delicious and still a great price. I'm not a wine drinker, but the wine list was extensive, and mostly with locally sourced wines. My chosen entrée, double cut pork chop, was expertly done, and enough to satisfy my large appetite. My only regret was not saving room for dessert.

The chef knows how to turn farm fresh ingredients into an amazing feast for your palate ! Everything about this restaurant was spot on, service, food, ambience and entertainment.
The pea and corn tart was delicious. The crust was perfect. Both entrees, chicken with rhubarb whiskey glaze and duck with a cherry sauce were a 10 out of 10. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The food was superb and service was the same. We are reluctant to write anything negative as we enjoyed our night very much but do feel we need to mention that we all found the temperature in the restaurant a little too cold, I was thankful fur my jacket.

We both had the chef's signature steak dish. They were perfectly cooked our taste and delicious. The dark sauce was unusual and tasty. A top 10 meal us. Thanks to the chef and the wait staff for a fine experience.

TripAdvisor and Open Table gave high marks to AG and they were right. We dined on both 7/6 and 7/8. Specialty drinks were great. our waiters, Darren and Derek, were the best. Darren noted that cherries were in the kitchen and even arranged for a custom special cherry dessert. Derek took the fillet up a notch with special preparation. The mussels and asparagus salad appetizers were amazing, as well as the pork chop and salmon mains. There was live music on 7/8. Great choice.

It was really good, it takes some time for them to bring you the food but they provide yuou some "free" samples to try in the middle so you dont feel they are taking forever. Presentation is amazing, the service is very friendly but thats something they have to because is not a cheap restaurant, is actually very expensive. Only for speccial situations.

I felt very uncomfortable in this restaurant. From the moment we were seated it was evident the waiter was more interested in running-up the tab than providing us with a great dinning experience by promoting every additional cost item he could offer. We were in Canada for a wedding and to visit the Falls, which my wife had never seen. I selected the AG because of the ratings and "gluten free" in their advertising but was very much disappointed. The service was OK but slow, the food was good, but the menu was limited, pricey, and the servings unusually very small. Also, don't expect the same food offerings as you might find on their website and internet postings. I came for the lake trout but it was not on the menu the evening we were there. Having dined in some of the world's best restaurants I would describe the AG experience as "stuffy" and not a warm atmosphere. I couldn't wait to get out of there! Fortunately for this trip all of our other dining experiences and selected restaurants in London, Niagara, and Niagara on the Lake were fabulous. I glad others find it so fabulous but we would not go again.

The restaurant serves in season fruits and vegetables that are locally sourced and it was a fabulous meal! Even the drinks were done with in season fruits. The menu revolved around Strawberries, Rhubarb and Fiddleberries. I had asked for a come, romantic seating and boy did we get it! A booth all to ourselves, which could have been curtained off if we really wanted privacy.
I had a Berry Rhubarb Lemonade which was slightly tart, sweet without being overly so and super refreshing. My BF had the Spiced Strawberry Old Fashioned which he found to be primo.
We started with Salmon & Trout Mousse on Cucumber amuse gueule, compliments of the Chef! It was lovely and not super fishy.
I followed with a Field Greens w/Balsamic Strawberries and Prosciutto and he had Pepper Bisque w/Asparagus and Pesto, with of which were very good.
The main course was Grilled Quail w/Boar Sausage and Potato Puree for me and everything went so well together. The quail was cooked to perfection, the boar sausage was a bit stronger in taste, but the potato puree balanced the tastes so nicely. It was just the right amount of food too. He had Beef Tenderloin with Brie and Walnut Crust in a Port Wine Reduction which was cooked to perfection.
for dessert, we shared the Balsamic Strawberries w/ Strawberry Semi-Freddo w/ Pretzel Crumble, which ended up being the perfect ending to a perfect meal.
Everything was so fresh and flavorful. We both loved it.
The staff was courteous and very knowledgeable. They made us feel like we were the only ones there and took the time to explain every dish. Fantastic!
It was an outstanding experience!! Our compliments to the chef and the staff!

We were a little skeptical when we parked and were led towards the basement of the hotel that AG was located in. However, we were exceptionally surprised by the ambiance and overall atmosphere of the restaurant. We had a superb meal, with very attentive service. The beef tenderloin was so good that if I ever visit Canada again and eat at this restaurant, I would not even consider ordering anything else.
