“Great buffet breakfast”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

A great place to have breakfast with a view of the falls! I really enjoyed the waffles with maple syrup. There was lots of fresh fruit to choose from and I highly recommend the egg white omelette with feta cheese.

“Goood Food! Great View!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We were a group of 5, of which 4 were vegetarian. Except the limited vegetarian options on the menu, the chef prepared some special dishes for us. The food was good. To get a table by the window for the view, kindly make a reservation. Overall a nice experience, though we had two $40 gift card, it is still expensive.

“Really enjoyed this restaurant!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

We were seated at a table by the window with a view of the Falls. I saw another review that mentioned that this restaurant is sometimes out of menu items. Our waiter immediately told us they were out of trout. When I ordered the prime rib, I was also informed that they were out of that (and it was early - just before 7 pm)! My husband had new york strip and lobster. He said it was the best lobster he has ever had. I had the rib eye. It was also good. We especially enjoyed the vegetables that came with the entrees (asparagus and red peppers). The real surprise was dessert. The cheesecake with caramel sauce (they have several sauces to choose from) and the creme brulee were both outstanding! Yes, it was an expensive dinner, even with a $40 voucher, but we really enjoyed it, and it was our anniversary.

“Good food but EXTREMELY expensive!!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014


Even with a $40 gift card from staying at the hotel our bill was almost $130 without having any alcohol! We had 2 entrees, 1 dessert and 2 soft drinks.

The rack of lamb was delicious and the steak melted in your mouth.... the prices are just astronomical. The "chocolate TOWER" is smaller than a hockey puck - save your $11!!

Luckily, with the great view we were able to catch the Friday night fireworks that no one told us about at checkin - a very fortunate fluke!!

BREAKFAST: The breakfast buffet here is DELICIOUS!! At only $15.95 a person it is very reasonable - it has just about everything... fresh fruits, yogurt, ommlette bar, pancakes, waffles etc. We received this complimentary for being Marriott Gold members - if not, we would still have paid for it.

Note - the juice glasses are TINY, like little juice shots, so just tell your server to keep them coming (they are included).
