Server did not welcome you. Restaueant door falling off with handle could be safety hazard. Food ordered was to be not hot it was spicy. Very disappointing when servers are talking very loud to each other in dinning room. Not nice for fine dinning

Always enjoy the meal. Meal for four is a meal for eight. Excellent for leftovers. Great prices and a quite atmosphere. No loud music.

Whenever we can't figure out where to eat, we go to Magnolia. That's because it is inexpensive, uncrowded, and the food is consistently good. It's the kind of place you can take a bunch of family members with varying tastes and everyone is satisfied. The dining area is pleasant and the music creates a relaxing atmosphere. Also, the bill will... More

The waitstaff appeared to be totally disinterested that someone had come into their restaurant to eat. The food, when it eventually came, was far below the standard that I expected. It is my policy that if one ca't say anything good then they should say nothing but this just wasn't good. Perhaps I'm just too picky.

Being from out of town, I blindly followed the GPS in my rental car. Not noticing, this location is in St. Catharines and not in Niagara Falls (the location with the good ratings). The place was empty, filthy, and the one server was gruff and pushy. I tried to ordered SIMPLE “PLAIN” STEAMED chicken and vegetables. This was not understood... More

Just had the curry and a Cantonese chow mien. I've never had a chow mien that tasted like this. Different from the norm' but in a good way. Definitely would eat that again. Curry was a little skimpy due to no starch offered with the dish. Just veg and chicken. Quite tasty though. I ended up drinking the curry broth... More

This used to be a very good spot for Chinese food in St Catharines but has rapidly declined with each visit. After the most recent attempt i will never return. The restaurant and bar area was so dirty and disorganized i can only imagine what the kitchen looked like, this is never a good sign. There appeared to be little... More
