Visiting Savor for lunch was such a wonderful experience. We had had dinner here several times but this was first time for lunch. The salads were outstanding and the burger might just have been the best I have ever had. It is so refreshing to eat in such a consistently excellent restaurant. And to thing it is a culinary institute!... More

We had friends in from VA and had carefully planned their visit in the area. We visited Niagara on the Lake, Niagara Falls, and East Aurora on their visit. We had not planned lunch at Savor but it turned out to be the best meal of their visit. We ended up in NF on a cold Friday around lunch after... More

We had the pleasure of dining at Savor over the Christmas holidays. I must say that I was surprised that the restaurant was open, because it is supposedly staffed by students and I assumed they would be on break. Thankfully for us - but not for them - that was not the case. We enjoyed: 1. Grass Fed Filet Mignon... More

Savor was the best part of our trip to Niagara Falls, New York. The wait staff are students at the culinary school. The cooking staff is split between students and hired, well trained staff. My husband and I went on New Years Eve. The menu was recreated for the holiday. The food and the service was extraordinary! Please stop at... More

My wife and I visited for dinner and had a nice experience. The wait staff was the epitome of professional and prompt. The food choices were a bit sophisticated for us, but we got a small plate item as well as a few recommended brick oven pizzas and enjoyed them. We saw other couples ordering a number of large plates... More

We chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and it did not disappoint. Normally, we are not fans of the buffet style meal, but lunch on Christmas Eve was outstanding.

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.
