Sandstone Grillhouse Ratings and Reviews
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
Very good restaurant. Service very friendly, attentive. Had to wait slightly for our reservation but not a huge deal (maybe 15 mins, was a busy Friday). Would recommend for all types of events. Food was very fresh. Pricing very reasonable for the quality of menu.
We went for our 50th Wedding Anniversary and did not mention this to the restaurant. Those that mentioned their special occasion got a special treat. We wanted to just relax and enjoy it. The 4 course meal we chose was just wonderful and right portions. We did not have room for dessert. We definitely recommend this restaurant to any one for any occasion or just for a night out for a great meal.
Andrew was our server. He was very knowledgeable about the menu. He made great suggestions. My husband and I had the chateaubriand for 2 and it was superb. Cudos to the chef! My sons girlfriend had the grilled steak and it was the best! The mushroom soup was flavorful and divine. Panoko crusted goat cheese starter was fabulous! If you haven't been to the Sandstone Grillhouse get there soon! They will impress! It's only 5 min from Niagara Falls tourist area. Give it a try!
Great food and great service. I have a gluten and dairy allergy and our waitress was very knowledgable about what my options were. She communicated with the chef and made sure my food was prepared correctly. On top of that, the food was delicious. They had great prices and good deals. Restaurant is near Clifton Hill area but not too touristy. Would definitely recommend.
We were in Niagara Falls for our wedding anniversary and booked Sandstone for our arrival dinner through Open Table and great reviews of the place. We weren't disappointed. It was everything people say. It was busy and bustling with noise but expected and our waitress was above average for her age and made us feel comfy when we arrived late due to long weekend traffic over our four hour drive.
I ordered the New York strip loin special with veggies and garlic mashed potatoes. Steak was cooked perfect and great cut of meat. I didn't even need sauce on it. It was on of the best steaks I've had anywhere.
Wife is vegetarian and had House-made Spinach Gnocchi which was also excellent
The whole dining experience was exceptional. It is evident that the owner takes pride in every aspect of his establishment and was visiting guests to ask how things were. We like that.
We'll be back.
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.
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.
