Queenston Heights Restaurant
Featuring a panoramic view of the Niagara River, this restaurant ten kilometres north of the Falls offers a variety of contemporary dishes in a unique park setting. Located within Queenston Heights Park, site of the memorable War of 1812 battle, the restaurant is known for its lovely Sunday brunch. It also features full lunches and dinners along with a traditional afternoon tea and choice of local Niagara Region wines. While in the park, which is administered by the Niagara Parks Commission, you can visit Brock's Monument.
My wife and I and another couple came at 3PM for lunch and even though the restaurant closes at 3PM, the staff invited us in and we ordered from the lunch menu. The staff accomodated us all through the meal, which was delicious, and the executive chef came out and chatted for a few minutes also. Everything and everybody could not have been nicer. I recommend this restaurant highly.
Called for a reservation a week in advance-was told could not accomodate till 7:30pm. So we waited patiently for the time since we had not been there since 2001 and were looking forward to going.Got delayed on bridge, called to see if reservation would still be available,person did not return call, was attempting to call us as we walked in the door. Once we arrived, found out that restaurant was to close @ 8pm even though advertisement stated 9pm. Why would a restaurant take a reservation at that time knowing that they are closing in 1/2 hour. Person at desk was willing to let us eat there anyway knowing it would have to be a "quick dinner" and "didn't want to have to rush us". We declined since no one else was in the restaurant except the people cleaning up and us.
Make sure you ask "what time they close" if you have a late reservation. Disappointed, had hoped to eat there.
Remember the delicious bread that was brought to your table, fresh and oven hot? And the three flavours of butter that came with it?
No more. Now they bring you microwave-warmed bread and slices of butter just like the diners - on a cardboard backing, with some wax paper on top. Shame!
Our main course did not resemble its description in the menu.
Heed this advice and STAY AWAY!
A reviewer states, "The service staff that sizes up tip potential at each table and then delivers commensurate service." This restaurant may stink--I really don't know--but how can this person claim to know the wait staff "sizes up tip potential" if he/she only dined once? Futhermore, the reviewer's sentence I quoted is grammatically incorrect and the word, "Contributer" is spelled wrong on this site.
Queenston Heights serves up low-quality food from chefs who pretend to know what they are preparing and plating. This was the most disappointing dining experience in 20 years. A well planned special outing was ruined by tough, old, unedible beef that did not even have the reduction that they printed on the menu. The service staff that sizes up tip potential at each table and then delivers commensurate service. There were no apologies or a pledge from the management to see this "kitchen crew" would be corrected. Queenston Heights boasts about their "culinary delights and skills". These are marketing words that should not be associated with this establishment. Any restaurant that fits the "expensive" $$$ category should not be allowed to get away with the lowest quality food standards.
