Review: AG Inspired Cuisine

It does not surprise me that AG Inspired Cuisine appears in OpenTable Top 100 Best Restaurants in Canada

“The Top 100 Best Restaurants in Canada represent the establishments where creativity, consistency, and hospitality meet at every meal, every day. The list of honourees is based on an analysis of more than 275,000 reviews of approximately 1,500 restaurants across the country — all submitted by verified diners.”

Located in the lower level of the Sterling Inn & Spa Niagara Falls’ only boutique hotel, AG Inspired Cuisine is an absolute must if you’re looking for an excellent place to eat in Niagara Falls.

Similar to Ravine Vineyard, AG Inspired Cuisine utilizes regional and season ingredients from farms and producers in the Niagara area. To harmonize their regional menu, the wine list at AG Inspired Cuisine is 100% VQA and represents the best wineries of Wine Country.

I must admit, even after reading all the fantastic reviews on TripAdvisor I was still skeptic, but this all changed at first bite.

Not only was every dish magnificent but also the service was fantastic. Our waiter and the rest of the staff made us feel very special the moment we sat down. 

Our menu choices:

A Fisherman’s Friend Appetizer

A Fisherman’s Friend (House smoked lake whitefish, fresh oysters and poached shrimp house pickles, boiled egg and dill yogurt)

If you are looking for a special dinning experience in Niagara Falls this is the right place. Their dining room is intimate, chic, and romantic. The unique atmosphere at AG Inspired Cuisine is posh and refined, while still being the perfect place for a casual gathering of friends for dinner or drinks.

A special thanks to everyone at AG Inspired Cuisine for making our visit a memorable one. For more information visit their website.
