First time shared the soft shell crab blt and the tuna tartare for appetizers , had the tuna tartare entree and shared the sticky toffee roll for desert. Enormous entree portions that can easily be shared. A consistently very good meal.

We had a party of 4. We shared the beet salad and potato skins small plates. Both excellent portion sizes, amazing flavors. Our dinners were tuna, chicken,pasta and steak. Everyone loved the meal. Andrew was a waiter worth asking for. Will visit again.

Fellow diners had the Gorgonzola rib eye steak and the filet which were... More

We were very impressed with the service and the food at this downtown Buffalo gem. Starting with the delicious fresh bread and spicy oil, nice wine selection and amazing rib eye top with gorgonzola. The menu was extensive and we will return. Delicious and the waitress was exceptional.

Our server was so kind and attentive as well as the secondary server (filled our water glasses, etc.). The restaurant is beautiful. We... More
