I was wavering between a 3 and 4 but gave it a 4 for good service. I found the food slightly above average for the type of restaurant. The wine was a decent Rose and fairly priced. The salad was good. The salmon was ok...More

Visiting Buffalo with a friend. She wanted to go to Raclettes because she wanted to have that for dinner. I had never experienced that type of cooking. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Would definitely go back.
