good food, great service, had a good time :) Went on a date and would go back again
Excellent experience! The spinach-artichoke dip is so good we could have just ate those all night but we ordered the paella for two and were wowed by the size, taste and presentation. It come with garden salads so fresh they must have a garden out back. It’s our new favourite and can’t wait to bring friends and try the rest of the menu.

Best vegan restaurant in town. The food is a bit pricey but you get what you pay for. The food is amazing! I've been here 5 times and I'd happily go again

Customer's reviews..
We went for a birthday celebration, I haven't been for some time so it was nice to return. Place was busy, service was great (and fast), food was very good. I had chicken Parmesan sandwich (forgot to take photo!), others I dined with enjoyed their meal too, thank you for helping us to celebrate the special occasion.
Delicious food and excellent service!! The salads were fresh, the portions were generous and the ambiance perfect. We are outside, but the inside was nice too!! Our table of 12 was very happy!!

Shawarma Hut Plus $$
170 Hartzel Rd unit 2, St. Catharines - L2P 1P1
Cuisines: Halal Mediterranean
Customer's reviews..
Love the food, eat there atleast once a week. I've always been one who doesn't like to try new things but I'm so glad I tried this place. I've been to 2 other shawarma restaurants and doesn't compare. I haven't met a person who has said a bad thing about this place. Owner is amazing, very nice and humble.
This was the best shawarma in Niagara when I was last home a year ago! Used to come here so often and the owner is such a polite and friendly guy. They haven’t upped their prices whatsoever since I’ve been out of the country and I was even just able to order delivery from here 20 minutes before close (I hate doing this, but I work in a restaurant until 11 but have been craving shawarma hut for an entire year, kudos to Mo and his staff, awesome people)

Dispatch $$
386 St Paul St, St. Catharines - L2R 3N2
Cuisines: Moroccan Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt Mediterranean
Customer's reviews..
Due to the web site not up dating hours of operation, and phone not being serviced, we drove down from Oakville for a patio meal to found out that that the restaurant is closed all Sunday 29 August due to a private event while the web site stated open till 4pm. The person at the restaurant said “sorry” and didn’t seem to care. There were others behind us that were disappointed. In the future, do up date the web site especially if you don’t respond to phone calls.
What an experience!!!!💗 I have never been to such a special restaurant before, and cannot recommend it highly enough!! Dispatch is a gem, in all that it offers and represents, it is hard to even know where to start. The food was incredible: the flavours were so complex, the ingredients so fresh, the attention to detail. We got to meet chef Gizem who was making the food that night, and she is just lovely and beyond talented and gifted at what she does. The drinks were so special and unique!!!! Again, the flavours were so complex, the ingredients so fresh, and the attention to detail!!! They were drinks to be sipped and savoured, they made you slow down and be mindful. I have never before experienced drinks like these, they were one of a kind! And desert!!!! Oh man, I'm salivating just thinking about it!!!! The people, they are lovely beyond lovely, and the word that just keeps coming up for me is special. Adam and Mike were so nice to speak to, they are so talented, passionate, and genuinely amazing people. This restaurant is so much more than just amazing food and staff, it supports the community, doing what they can to help others. How awesome is that!? And for a restaurant to still be doing whatever they can to spread goodness after enduring through a pandemic, which we are still enduring through the ripple effects. Dispatch is a living wage employer, being brave and doing something different from the majority of the industry, doing the right thing!!💗 In addition to the restaurant, they also have a beautiful store inside that sells gourmet food and drink items from around the world and creations made by Dispatch. They also had some really special items to support local and to support other businesses who are also doing what they can to make the world a better place. For example, Adam told us about these awesome t-shirts that support a local artist, Chance Mutuku, and these shirts have a great message! Or the amazing Mafia Tote Bags or Upcycled Market Tote Bags! The inside restaurant and the patio are lovely, the time and thought given to creating the space is so evident. The restaurant is aesthetically stunning, and the vibe of the restaurant is so comfortable!!!! It was the finest dining experience I have ever had, while also the most relaxed. Thank you guys for such a nice night out! Wish so much that we lived closer, but whenever we are anywhere near the St. Catharines area, we will 100% be coming in and so excited to come back:)

Osmow's Shawarma $

Cuisines: Mediterranean Middle Eastern
Customer's reviews..
Beside the awesome food, i would definitely thanks to the staff. They were very friendly and made our visit very special. They prepared everything as we wanted and served with care. The place is very clean including washrooms.
This location was far nicer than we anticipated! We went there after a sporting event and were blown away by the atmosphere and calm ambiance.I ordered a wide range of foods. All of them were wonderful and "clean" in flavour (not too saucy or greasy).The service was quite quick, and the entire team was extremely helpful. Strongly suggested!
