This is a culinary school that serves quality entrées and presents the food as art. I had a braised beef which had a delicious taste and a slight spicy heat. My wife had a pizza with greens on top. She thought it was delicious. I liked the lavender flavored butter, it was a unique twist, but it tasted good on... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal at Savor last night before heading up the street to watch a comedy show at the Seneca Niagara Casino. Six people in our group and everyone was satisfied with their meal. Given the high quality of the food and the presentation, it is easy to forget that everything is being prepared by culinary students! We had... More

We visited with friends from the local area, otherwise we would have never known about the place. We were welcomed warmly to a beautifully appointed restaurant by our student host. Our student server was well informed, able to provide good recommendations and answer questions about the menu. It was cute to see how excited and eager the students in the... More

After a lengthy car ride to the Falls we were not in the mood to drive for a dinner and walked around the corner from where we were staying and entered the Niagara County Community College CIA and it was most impressive. The staff(many students) were polite, accommodating and knowledgeable; the tables were beautifully set, napkins were handed to us... More

I went to Savor with some friends and had one of the best meals. We ordered more like family style so we could try a little bit of everything. The appetizers were delicious, the bone marrow which I never had was spectacular and so flavorful. Between the food, the cleanliness and the service, I don't think you can go wrong... More

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

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.
