We ate here on the recommendation of the bartender at our hotel. It was more than we normally spend, but on vacation you can splurge. I'm so glad we did. One of the best meals we've had. I had filet, my boyfriend had the scallops. Both cooked perfectly. I would go back anytime I happen to be visiting the area.

It's very hard to find really good food with all the chains around, however Savor is GREAT!!! My husband & I reserved a table ahead of time but it wasn't to busy as it's off season. We had flat bread pizza as an appetizer - it was delicious, nice fresh ingredients & even the sauce was just right. Then I... More

We weren't intending to go out but headed to Savor because it was close to our hotel. Trip Adviser reviews certainly assisted the choice. Our greeting was professional and friendly. After being shown to a table, our server Matthew appeared. We see a lot of waiters in a lot of restaurants but this guy was the real deal. We knew... More

Lobster bisque, Green Salad with grilled shrimp, split a wild mushroom pizza & a pumpkin cheesecake with slivers of squash, all were wonderful. Creative use of local, fresh ingredients was evident. Matt, our server was quite knowledgable about the ingredients and their preparation. For a young person, he demonstrated a fresh voice with a depth of knowledge, beyond his years.... More

Love this place. Stop in with my wife often. It is part of the local culinary institute. So they are trainging students. However, they generally do a very nice job. Some time it seem like they make everything will a little extra love.

We ate here two times on our anniversary getaway because the food was so amazing we had to try again! Once inside, once out on the outdoor dining area. The food was delicious, immaculately prepared and the service was first rate. The prices, including the wine list, were very reasonable as it is a training facility, but you would have... More

I had dinner at Savor on a cold, late October evening. It's an open concept restaurant, where food preparation is not hidden from the dining space, though it is separate. It's a high-end venue where food service trainees work under the direction of experienced staff. I had pork belly starter, and the roast lamb, medium rare. Both were excellent, as... More

10 of us visited after a small wedding -found the place very attractive, with an amazgingly different menu. Several offerings were items I had never heard of before (and I;m 78 so have heard a lot). The food was very good - but I found the servings small except for the hamburger which someone else ordered. Very tasty and not... More

Description
Savor, the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute's (NFCI) fine dining restaurant, provides a real-world hands-on learning experience for students enrolled in the Culinary Arts, Pastry Arts, Restaurant Management and Hospitality programs. Savor features an open kitchen where student chefs are on "display" to showcase their talents to the guests.

Students work in rotation throughout Savor, including the wood-stone oven, serving fine dining cuisine. The goal is to expose students to classically prepared cuisine, presented in today's modern style, with an emphasis on using high quality local ingredients, all in a state-of-the-art kitchen.

Product used in the restaurant are purchased from local sources. Savor's menu changes with the four seasons to give student chefs opportunities to work with and sell the freshest ingredients.
