The Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra Ratings and Reviews
We went to the rainbow room to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary! The minute you step off the elevator you see the breathtaking views of the falls, it is absolutely lovely, our waitress Lindsey was outstanding, we choose to do the three course meal and wine pairing... Lindsey was very knowledgeable about the wines, and gave us interesting facts. The food was amazing! My husband and I would definitely go back! It's a great place for a special occasion.
Had a phenomenal experience at the Rainbow Room. We ordered the 3 and 4 course meals.
My wife had the calamari to start, the halibut with butternut squash risotto for her entree and banana chocolate molten cake for dessert and said that it was the best meal she ever had! I had the caesar salad to start, the veal & beef bolognese as my entree, the steak as my main and pavlova for dessert and was equally happy. We were blown away by not only the excellent food, but also the stunning view of both Niagara Falls & Horseshoe Falls - as well as the excellent service of our server, Christopher. Would recommend to anyone whose looking for a special spot to have a romantic evening.
We ordered the cauliflower gnocchi and the gnocchi was just mush, there was few to no pieces of gnocchi.
The waiter could tell we weren't happy (I was just going to pay and not complain) but he had the manager come over. She took all our plates and graciously offered us Massimos famous bolognese. It was ok, but noodles were dry like they had been under a heater for a while.
The service and manager was really great and I truly appreciate what they did and them going out of their way to make up for the poor food.
Service was great - but restaurant felt like it was riding on the view and chef name alone. Food was ... good. Options were ok, but felt a little posh for the sake of being posh. They didn't play to any favourites or even gourmet take on classic favourites. Restaurant decor could use a dramatic overall to somewhat match the food options & price.
I wouldn't go back. The view was amazing - but not enough to push me to go back. Wine list was meh. Especially for a restaurant so close to SO many amazing VQA options.
Our server, Lindsey, was fantastic. Very effective in her presentation and being a repeat customer for longer than Lindsey has been there we truly appreciated her candour. In fact, my wife trust her culinary expertise so much that she takes the 4-course dinner and then tells Lindsey to surprise her. The surprise has always been exceptional.
La comida fue muy buena, aunque la atención poco descuidada aún cuando no había mucha gente en el restaurante. Entiendo que no todas las mesas pueden tener ventana pero mi reserva la hice 2 meses antes y no pude acceder a esa ventaja.
El precio me pareció elevado, aún cuando descontaron los KIds menú, 200 CAN x dos adultos en una cena.
Our waitress at The Keg (also a great restauarant) gave a glowing review of the Rainbow Room and so we just had to go.
Christopher was a great waiter, wine list was amazing and the food was even more amazing.
The view of both falls at night is good.
If you like good food (not just food) and you're in Niagara Falls you must go here!
Probably one of the worst restaurants I have ever been to, especially for the expensive prices! Onion soup was bland, octopus carpaccio barely had any octopus (looked like a child made it), not to mention for being an italian restaurant, it had a horrible wine selection. The view of the falls was nice, however the restaurant is run down, and rugged looking inside. Needs table clothes ! For being Massimos Capra's restaurant I am EXTREMELY disappointed, and will not be returning.
We had high hopes because of the fame of Massimo, but the management does not live up to his reputation. We had planned out a four course tasting menu for the two of us with wine, which would have been pricey but we wanted to splurge a bit. We got everytging sorted with the waitress when she dropped on us that our $40 voucher for dinner from the hotel was not valid with the tasting menu. honestly? arguing with people over such a small amount compared to what we were going to ordee is beyond silly. I felt like leaving just over the premise of it. Instead of having a big meal with wine we had an appetizer and pasta and left. The 87 layer lasagna appetizer was nothing special, and surprisingly bland. The pasta was gummy, and sauce had broken. Maybe not having the tasting menu was a good thing if it was all going to be subpar. The waitress' attitude also changed as soon as the voucher was given to her, I imagine she has had to deal with this often. Poor policy ontop of poor food. nope! not again.
Had high expectations because it was a Massimo Capra restaurant. Disappointed by atmosphere (way too bright and no table cloths) and food. Salmon tasted like it had been thawed from frozen and chicken did not have flavour. Expensive and poor experience, would not recommend it.
It's all about the view. The service was exceptional, the food very median. The noise level from several small children was high - running around our table, blocking the waitstaff. Oils have appreciated the children being seated away from the more intimate seating areas.
We love the rainbow room and drive 3 hours to get there for our anniversary every year. This year my husband turned 50 and chose the rainbow room as our venue to celebrate with his sister and her husband who flew in from Atlanta for the occasion. The service was outstanding (thank you Christopher) and the food was phenomenal. My in laws were blown away. We can't wait to return again when our anniversary comes around in October.
We were very impressed with The Rainbow Room. The food was perfectly done and extremely good. The wait staff was very solicitous and gracious. My husband, whose only hobby is gourmet cooking and is a tough audience for a restaurant, absolutely enjoyed his meal. I have already recommended this restaurant to several of my friends and I recommend it to you too.
Our experience here was great. Every course was amazing and the service by Christopher was top notch. He explained the dishes we were interested in very thoroughly and gave great recommendations. 4 courses was 69 and each course was a huge serving. Took a lot home.
Views of the falls were really nice. The atmosphere was nice as well except we were seated by a couple who brought their kids. We politely asked to move as we were looking forward to a night away from our kid, and others... I would suggest making alternate arrangements if you have kids. The menu was fairly extensive, the bolognese was great and you can tell the pasta was homemade which is always as added bonus. Our waitress seemed a bit new and forgot a drink at the bar and by the time it was ready our meals were complete and we were ready to go so we nixed the second round. The main reason for the 3 is everything needed salt, the calamari to my gnocchi. I continued to add salt to both as I ate them.
This in not fine dining-I have had better meals at Kelsey's. The view, however, was spectacular:
1) No table cloths???-There was not even a place mat and we were force to place our cutlery directly on the table.
2) When our appetizers arrived and the server struggled to put my son's plate down and almost poured his appetizer in his lap-new and poorly trained.
3) I ordered the 4 course meal with wine pairing, my wife ordered the 3 course meal with wine pairing and my son ordered the 3 course meal. We were not 1/2 way through our appetizers and first glass of wine when my second course arrived. When our waitress arrived with my second glass of wine, I informed her that this was far too quick to be receiving my second course and wine pairing as I had not even taken a sip of my first glass. She said the that kitchen sometime surprises her like this and that this way the others will not have long to wait for their main course as I was the only one having the 4 course meal.
4) I did my best to pound back my appetizer and pasta along with 2 glass of wine to be ready for our main course - good thing the servings were small. Our main course arrived and their was mass confusion as an extra meal and asparagus side also arrived at our table. There was an exchange with our server and waitress referring to us by seat number right there in front of us.
5) Unfortunately, my rare tenderloin steak was cooked medium well and it took some time to get our waitress' attention to have it replaced. Thankfully, my wife shared her rack of lamb with me as I waited for my new steak to arrive. Although the second steak was cooked properly, the cut of beef was no more than AA. While the crusting on my wife's lamb was bland, the meat was tender - much better than my steak.
6) Our creme brulee was so under cooked it looked like chocolate milk and was uneatable. We were forced to have the manager come to our table to remove it and the 3% (PF) Promotion Fee, disguised as a tax, from our bill.
Overall the experience was good - we really enjoyed our meal. However, for the price point the meal was disappointing.
1. The calamari was not lightly dusted, but overly breaded and tasted like it was from frozen.
2. The sauces with the calamari were awful - the creamy sauce, which I assumed should have been a garlic sauce, tasted like sour cream and the spicy sauce was not hot or tangy (tasted like tomato paste).
3. The a la carte sides were "meh". The asparagus was coated with a buttery-creamy sauce, which was not necessary; and cauliflower was over cooked and salty.
BUT, the steak entree and Scallop entree were very good, bordering amazing.
The food is excellent!!! The scallops are cooked to perfection. Wonderful view while you dine. We have been here twice so far and it will be our main dinner place to go from now on. Everything is just Wonderful!!! The staff go over and above to make your experience memorable.
