Sandstone Grillhouse Ratings and Reviews

My wife and I were in Niagara for just one night, and we could not be happier that we chose to spend our one dinner eating at Sandstone! Not only was it a good value, but the food was delicious! We both went for the four course prix fixe, starting with crab cakes and fried goat cheese, moving on to Caesar salads, enjoying a great 8 oz strip steak, and finish with some lava cake a la mode. The steak in particular was on of the best simple preparations I've had. Great meal overall!

We were traveling back to Niagara Falls from Niagara on the Lake and were starving. This place had good yelp reviews. We were leery at first because area was so crazy busy, but once inside it was nice and quiet. Our waiter was great and the food was outstanding! We had "The classic" which is dinner for 2. Best Greek salad I've ever had and the Rib-eye steak and chicken were delicious! Enjoyed the brownie a la mode as well! Will definitely go back next time in town!

We were in Niagara for the weekend. We had just been to one of the wedding chapels for a commitment ceremony and read reviews on your restaurant that were favourable. The food was great but the service was bad. We were seated quickly but it was 25 minutes before our server came to our table and asked if we were ready. Not for a drink order but for our food order. Then she asked about drinks. Our server was absent most of the night. She even left us alone with the debit machine.

Waiter was excellent, steak was one of the worst I have ever had. I couldn't eat it all, I left hungry. My steak should have been compensated for or replaced, my girlfriend had the same experience that night. She was not impressed.

We had a delicious dinner. Everything was fresh and hot and tasty! Staff was super nice and helpful as I forgot my wallet and had to scramble to get my credit card number! Extremely memorable and satisfying evening!

Although I will recommend the restaurant as a whole, I am not sure that I will return. It was our first time here and when it came down to the main course, the steak had a lot of fat/grizzled in it. Not my cup of tea... Otherwise, the food was good. Waiter was great, the host who greeted us, so/so, did not seem to interested in us... I am sure there are lots of other restaurants in the area that will be happy to provide my wife and I with a great overall experience.

Excellent place. Great food, fast service, intuitive wait staff. Free parking. A bit crowded, and they need a better AC. It was hot outside and the AC struggled to reduce the humidity inside. They had to open windows so that let in flies. Apart from the weather everything else was very good and I would go again (outside of tourist season).

Seated promptly and took drink orders as we looked over the menu. Kitchen was backed up and was given free potato soup as we waited. I could sense the waiter was doing the best he could but everything was governed by the kitchen. While bringing the dishes out hot sauce juice spilled and barely missed my son and I had to level the plate to stop it as the waiter was unaware. Food was average but felt with the service the value for the money was off.

The atmosphere is very elegant. Very clean. Quiet atmosphere inside. Delicious expresso martini's. This was my second time here. Service was very attentive to detail of the table from beginning to end and very attentive to us as well. I would rate the entrees with a 5 out of 5. Definitely above average. Exceptional! No opinion on dessert, we didn't leave room unfortunately. We will be going back and highly recommending it to everyone!

Service was excellent! Food was delicious. We were not sure what to expect when we drove up- definitely a great find. The owner was extremely friendly and checked on us during our dinner. If in the area, we would definitely come back.

We had a really nice dinner here. They were able to accommodate my gluten-free diet. I had a salad with a large steak. Others in our group had seafood pasta or steak. The steak was done to perfection. The restaurant is large and able to accommodate groups. There is a parking area across the street from the restaurant and a few spots on the side of the restaurant. However, we were there on Canada Day and the entire parking lot was filled with people going to the falls for the evening. If you go on a busy weekend give yourself some extra time to get a parking spot.

Our family gathered at Niagara, coming from all over tge east coast. We spent one evening having a nice dinner together in a location that was not too touristy. The Sandstone Grill was perfect. Tables were set up so that we could all intereact. The food and service were terrific. Everyone had a great evening.

Definitely worth a visit. Family run gem and away from the hustle/bustle of touristy Niagara Falls. The food was delicious with a good variety to choose from and the portions were very generous. This will be our "go to" restaurant in the Falls from now on.
Not What You Expect
We chose this restaurant based on reviews on Yelp and here on Open Table, however we were disappointed. This was our anniversary dinner and the meal was not at the level we anticipated based on the reviews we read.
We both did the Prix fix menu. The appetizers were okay at best. The Greek salad had a sweet vinaigrette dressing which does not present a cohesive salad.
We both had the NY Strip which was a good cut however lacked flavor. There was minimal seasoning used which was disappointing. Our steaks were cooked perfectly to a medium rare and medium. The Asiago potatoes were not evenly mixed, you had bites with and bites without.
We both selected the Chocolate Lava Cake ... that had no Lava. This was very disappointing, especially to find a white cream filling in the cake.
This is not a restaurant we will return to during future visits to the area. We also shared our opinion with our Innkeepers, who had stopped referring their guests their based on personal experience and feedback from guests.
Our overall experience at the Sandstone ...
Our overall experience at the Sandstone Grillhouse was very positive. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. For a "casual upscale" kind of restaurant, we enjoyed ourselves completely. I highly recommend the Sandstone to anyone who finds themselves in the Niagara Falls area.

Great new find as we live here in the Falls. Nice ambiance and great service from our server Becky. Our steaks were seasoned and cooked perfectly. We'll be back. I requested a booth when I booked on Open Table and got a really nice private booth near the front of the restaurant.

This place was a real gem in the middle of Niagara. The staff was really welcoming. The decor felt upscale, I would have taken a date here for fun. The cocktails from the bar were wickedly good and the food tasted great. Honestly I'm surprised by how good this place. Might have to make it a regular stop in Niagara.

We had a very nice dinner there to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Had a nice quiet table at the back. Our server was exceptional - not too intrusive and timed everything perfectly. My husband and I both had the Ceasar salad - good but not the best one I have had. My husband had the chicken parmesan - said it was good but the coating could have been crispier. I had the lamb shank - not what I was expecting but still good - couldn't finish it which says a lot about their portion size. We will definitely return.

We were a party of 11 out for a good evening and a fine meal. All but one enjoyed their meal as it was just as ordered, cooked perfectly and very tasty. The one individual who had a problem did not receive his steak as ordered (ordered medium well but received medium rare) but did not tell the waiter until the meal was finished, therefore, the staff were unable to correct the error. Service was fantastic and overall we annoyed our evening!
I enjoyed the Prix Fixe Prix Menu. We were enjoying the music "SiriusXM Coffee House." All was great until the family with the screaming child was seated next to us. We left and went back to the Greystone Manor B&B where we were staying. It was too bad. We were really enjoying our time when the racket started.

My friend and I found This place on Trip advisor and it was very highly ranked. We were warmly greeted immediately at the door and felt very comfortable. The environment was very well decorated with subdued lighting that was just perfect for dining. Our waitress, Trinity, was wonderful! She had an excellent knowledge of the menu. I ordered a craft beer that was delicious. The wine menu was very nice with many different wines from all over the world. The bartender was quite knowledgeable and helpful. My friend ordered the 4 course dinner that was delicious. She choose the strip steak which was cooked perfectly and has minimal fat. I had the gnocchi which were "pillow-perfect." I definitely recommend The Sandstone. Not a great environment for boisterous children as it's quite quiet.
sorry, but a disappointment
I was looking forward to the Sandstone Grill., I reserved ahead for a special Valentines dinner.,I'm afraid to say it was disappointing.The gentleman at the door was very friendly but from there it went a down hill.The waitress seemed to be very rushed.,like she wanted to get us in and out quickly?,at one point a drink was taken away that we weren't even finished with.
The meal itself was a disappointment, a very salty filet,soggy vegetables,over cooked shrimp skewer, not what i expected from the reviews that i read.The crab cakes were the highlight.Dessert was served, we weren't offered a choice,a very nice cheesecake though,and the bill came quickly after ,again like you wanted us to get out!.
Great Place to Eat! Very convenient location!
We had the Classic Grill, which was a shared plate, included greek salad (yummy!), grilled chicken, 6-once steak, veggies and potatoes, plus dessert. My wife and I shared it and enjoyed the whole meal thoroughly!
Our server was also quite good. I don't remember her name, but she was pleasant and efficient. The owner or manager even popped by and asked if we were enjoying. He then cleared some plates, which was great!
