Only one vegan dish

2 Posted on 06 / 02 / 2013

Please note...they no longer have a side vegan menu. They have one dish only . It is rice, eggplant, mushrooms with sauce. It was ok. But they charged 39.95 for the dish. There was no vegan bread option and it did not come with a salad. The view is amazing and it is fun atmosphere but not sure the food is worth the money. There are other near by places with more options and better service, but the view at Skylon Tower is awesome however you can see the view and experience the tower with out dinning there. I had emailed them before our trip and was sent a menu with three dishes on it but two days later when we showed up I was told they just stopped using that menu since there was now one vegan item on menu.

Pros: View, Experience, Atmosphere
Cons: Price, Selection, Quality

    I am planning on travelling to Niagara Falls in a couple of weeks and was interested in Skylon Tower because I read they had vegan options. I chatted with them on facebook and this is what they said today:

    Skylon Tower

    "We do not carry our vegan options anymore, however we are very good at accommodating any item on the menu to cater your dietary needs. You can call us 1 888 975 9566 for any more questions."

    So, it appears they may not even have the one item which is pitiful.

Pleasantly Surprised!

When we planned a trip to Niagara Falls, Canada for a long weekend, Happy Cow helped us find the restaurants where we could have our vegan meals. We knew, however, that our last meal there would be atop the Skylon Tower in the rotating restaurant above the Falls, no matter what, even if that meant just eating side dishes.

Knowing this to be a conventional restaurant that caters to the masses, we asked the staff at the bottom of the elevator if we could view the menu so we could be prepared. Not very vegan friendly, but we were NOT going to leave this tourist haven before having a meal at the top of the Falls with the best view available.

After viewing their conventional menu and asking about substitutions, we were then ABSOLUTELY AMAZED when our waiter surprised us with an entirely SEPARATE VEGAN MENU, which even comes in its own elegant hardcover binding labeled "Vegan Menu!" We left this restaurant with just one complaint that we had to make known: that they don't publicize that they have this menu well enough, and not even the staff at the bottom of the elevator know it exists.

This being the honeymoon capital of North America, if not the world, newlywed vegan couples honeymooning there can appreciate knowing that they'll be well accommodated in this prestigious restaurant where they can dine before the most spectacular view of the Falls. If their vegan menu is still not featured on the skylon.com website while you are making your pre-trip plans to Niagara Falls, and the staff at the bottom of the elevator are still not aware of it, then don't complain that the food isn't at the level that it is at one of the Indian or Chinese restaurants below, but please complain that they're still hiding their vegan menu from other vegans like yourself who want to dine there.

And you'll never have a meal with a more phenomenal view of one of the natural wonders of the world!

Pros: Atmosphere and view, Separately bound vegan menus, Choice of 3 entrées
Cons: Vegan menu not publicized, Plain compared to Indian/oriental dishes, A bit on the greasy side
