Sandstone Grillhouse Ratings and Reviews
Went here for partner's birthday. Got seated at a corner table with wing chairs. Haven't sat in a wing chair for many years. This was *very* nice. Asked the waitress (Mary - wonderful) to hold our meals until we had finished our cocktails. After a while, she asked if the cook could get to work. Timing was perfect. So was the food - seafood linguine, ribeye steak. As a surprise, Mary brought in a piece of delicious cheesecake with a candle for dessert. The experience was perfect in every way.
We had a family dinner to celebrate multiple birthdays and an anniversary while visiting Niagara Falls. The staff was excellent and the food was varied enough to please the crowd of 5 adults and 3 children. From the Embassy Suites it took us 25-30 minutes to walk and the WEGO bus isn't reliable enough to get you to your reservation on time. A cab cost us $9 CAD to return to the hotel. Nice restaurant but I don't think I'd go out of my way to dine there again. If you're staying on the north side of town I'd highly recommend the restaurant.
A friend and I spontaneously decided to treat ourselves to steak. Sandstone was a great choice! I had the beet and goat cheese salad with New York strip, my friend had the filet mignon special. The service was attentive but not intrusive, the steak was perfectly cooked. The restaurant was busy but the tables were spaced well so our conversation was easy and comfortable. We will be back!
Great evening out. Quality of food first rate with top class service. We had the soup and Greek salad for starters, house burger and Caesar salad with chicken for mains and chocolate and caramel sundaes for dessert. All choices were well presented and great tasting. Definitely worth a visit.
It was my wife's birthday and I had asked for that acknowledgement. I was not expecting anything more than a quiet recognition of that event. Don, our waiter, made it so delightful that we truly had a wonderful time, even with a slice of cheese cake and a candle. I will never return to Niagara Falls and NOT go by this restaurant. The weather was not that good, but it all became good once we entered and was greeted as guest. GREAT place and the service was great! Even compared to some of the fancy restaurants, this one had the basic things right: personal service, food, and ambience.
Everything about Sandstone was amazing! We brought our two dogs to Niagara falls with us and found this was the only restaurant in the area with a patio which was pet friendly.
From the start, everything was perfect. All of the employees were so friendly to our dogs and brought treats and water to them and came by often to give them lots of attention. The owner(I think his name was Danny?) even made a point to stop by to talk to us.
The food was incredible! We started with the crab cake appetizer, then each had a burger(delicious).
The French fries weren't like any other French fries we have had before. Whatever seasoning they used, we loved them. We also split a Caesar salad which did not disappoint. The next time we go back to Niagara falls, we will make a point to stop back here!
We made a reservation for our final dinner in the Falls during our first wedding anniversary. A friend joined us from the US. Kirk, our server greeted us and gave us top notch service. He provided for a small corkage fee champagne glasses to enjoy our gift of a 1992 Dom Perignon that our friend brought. The food was great, we had the crab cakes and calamari for apps and they were amazing. We all had various pasta for our mains, although the pasta is not house made the sauces more than made up for that. The atmosphere is nice and relaxing. The owner offered us a free dessert to share to celebrate our anniversary. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice place to dine that is out of the main tourist trap of the Falls.
Our first time at Sandstone. Excellent steaks, excellent salads, loved the roasted veggies. Friendly, efficient staff, and personal interest by Danny, the owner. There was a wedding party going on, and the friendly, social ambience made everything seem very comfortable. We had a leisurely, delicious meal that met our needs and did not disappoint in any way. We will be back.
I had made an 8:15pm reservation through open table for a saturday night. We arrived there at 8:05pm and the host told us our table would be "ready shortly". We didn't get a table until 8:40! What's the point of making reservations? They didn't even acknowledge that we were waiting or offer anything for the inconvenience. The only person who acknowledged us was the bartender and he mentioned "it shouldn't take this long, you guys have been waiting a long time". Food was ok but I will not be returning to this place. Not impressed.
I took my husband to Sandstone for his Birthday on January 10th and we really enjoyed it.
The food was excellent and the staff wonderful . We had not not dined at Sandstone for some time but soon found out what we were missing. We shared the Mixed Grill and it was exceptional. Prepared the way we like it and even got dessert which came with the meal.
We will definitely drop by very soon again.
Excellent restaurant pour un steak. Cuisson parfaite pour tous. Nous avions à notre table différentes préférences de cuisson de medium-bien cuit à bleu et tous ont adorés. Prix raisonnables. Carte des vins et décor corrects. Propre. Très Bon retaurant pour un endroit touristique. Vous ne serez pas déçus, comme dans certaines chaines de restaurant avec des prix déraisonnables et une nourriture très ordinaire. Parfois le décor époustoufflant a un prix et la nourriture en souffre un peu. Ici vous aurez une belle expérience et pourrez profiter de vos conversations avec vos propres , plutôt que de parler de votre bouffe ordinaire et trop chère. :) ça vaut le détour!
Excellent tasting food!
Had lamb shank with polenta - really goooood!
I ordered local wine and my friend ordered an import. Both were very nice.
Our waitress was friendly and attentive.
There was a small wedding (5:00 pm.) so a few fairly small children ran about. They did have
adults after them right away. A bit of noise, but not to the point of where you could not think.
I think the wonderful food and the good conversation overcame whatever small noise we had.
I wouldn't hesitate to go back for other menu choices, as well.
This place is a gem. We were a group of four and we were all very impressed by the quality of our meals, the presentation and the excellent service. Food was cooked to perfection. On top of it all, price of alcohol was surprisingly reasonable. The ambiance was perfect. This restaurant was the highlight of our four day trip to Niagara Falls. The easiest way to sum up our experience: WOW!!!
An overall fantastic restaurant. Everything about our experience was great. We had reservations and were seated immediately. We had a friendly waitress who provided great service. Our food and drinks were also very good. I had a steak cooked medium rare and that's exactly how it came out. This is a bit of an expensive place, but it is a great choice for a date night or special occasion.
The steak I ordered was not grilled to my liking ordered medium rare and it came out medium to medium well,my wife ordered a steak medium to medium well and it came out to be well done and some more.The restaurant took it back and she placed another order of pasta and it was even worse.Tasted horrible.The waitress was very good,took her order off the final
I selected this restaurant based on reviews of others and we were so pleased. Nice to go to a non-touristy restaurant in a touristy city. Most other guests were locals, a good sign as they live in this city. Had a delicious anniversary meal.
