I was so happy to invite my dear friend for lunch at Curly's because he was never at Curly's. We both loved our lunch choices - presentation was so impressive and food was delicious. Our server was wonderful. We will, without a doubt, return to Curly's.

We had reservations for 7pm. We were sat at 745pm. We had a drink at the bar which was fine. We were sat in the banquet room instead of the main dining room. The ambiance was NOT the same in the banquet room. Our server seemed annoyed when we were sat. Our buss girl was amazing and we gave her a tip
To herself as she made our night. The food was as good as I remembered. The night would have been so much better if we were sat in the main dining room as expected.

Seabass was amazing, as was Bolognese. Love this place. Bar service at table was slow but I’m guessing it’s because it was Valentines weekend. Server himself was good! We will be back. Love it there. Love decor!

The rack of lamb was a dish I haven't had in ages. This one was excellent. Wife had scallops that were a step above anywhere else. Can't wait to return. A very busy night (Valentine's) but service was as good as it gets.

There are a number of great restaurants in the Buffalo area but Curley's is always one of the restaurants we consider to dine at. The servers are always attentive, the food is delicious, Jerk Chicken, Jerk Pork & the fish dinners are some of my favorites and the ambiance has a cool vibe.

We dined there with our son & future daughter in law on 1/31/20 and found everything as organized and well planned for our arrival and being seated as when we came last year. The appetizer we chose was flatbread with mozzarella & blackberries, which came as a thin crust pizza which was more than adequate for 4 of us. I chose the treaditionL chicken jerk with coconut rice, my husband had the vegetable skillet with salmon, and our son & fiancé shared the baratta salad, chicken wing appetizer, & a pork sandwich....we all enjoyed the warm bread, and the server was friendly and inquired how we wanted to receive the food choices, and refilled our water regularly. We appreciated how everything moved along as we were planning on viewing the Lumagination show at the Botanical gardens afterwards. Excellent choice and good quality of service & food.

The jerked chicken was awesome and the stuffed banana peppers were the best I’ve tasted. They have an excellent gluten free menu with a variety of options.

Service was very slow. Everything from our appetizer to the entrees took a very long time. The appetizer, Korea bbq wings, were very good. My wife had a jerk chicken sandwich which was mediocre and I had the bistro tender which was inedible. Our waitress seemed to be in the weeds but refills on drinks were very slow and it's really not my problem if they are understaffed...I'm still paying full price. I will say that the host and waitress were very nice and the restaurant and is decorated warmly. The bar looks good, too. However, I had to actually spit my food into the napkin because it tasted like it was unwrapped in the cooler, thrown into a microwave and tossed on a disgusting piece of soggy bread. My stomach was sick the rest of the night. I would have complained but no one was around. We will never return.

The lack of service took away from the overall experience and overall value rating above. We spent $160 for what was a 60th birthday celebration and unfortunately we left frustrated.
Very long delay for first drink orders to arrive (one Manhattan and 3 waters). :25 wait for chips appetizer, drinks sat empty several times, no bread like other tables (until requested). Waitress didn’t mention my Caesar’s salad was a up charge. My filet arrived quite rare not medium. However the other entrees were excellent.
In her defense the waitress was working hard we just never saw her, Including the usual return to see how the meals were.
If we weren’t interested in a special night and hoping for the experience we would have gone to a basic restaurant. I really am not one to complain but since you asked I thought I’d express our issues so maybe it will be a better experience for the next family.
Have a blessed and Happy New Year.

Food was unimpressive. Had coco cay shrimp app. Small- medium shrimp with barbecue sauce. Two of us ordered the delmonico steak. I've had better at Outback and Longhorn, tough and overcooked. The waitress was very nice but we did not see enough of her ( drinks went dry ). There was not a bus person so empty dishes piled up on the table and the hostess finally came to refill water. A long wait between courses is fine but you need to be attended .

Food was good, overall experience and service below expectations . 1.5 hrs after the reservation arrival time, we still didn’t have our food. We waited 20 minutes after sitting down for the server to take our drink order. Bathrooms disorganized and messy. Really slipped from what it used to be .

We haven’t been to Curlys in over 10 years, but we’re so glad we stopped by. They were busy and it took a bit of time for the food to arrive, but otherwise everything was extraordinary. Portion sizes were spot on!

The restaurant only had one other table seated for dinner the entire time we were there - but our meal for 4 people still took 2 hours to be served (salad / entree). We love the food, but the service was ridiculously slow.

Curley's is a neighborhood gem. I have been there a few times over the past few years, and have never been disappointed. My wife and I went to dinner there prior to attending a granddaughter's basketball game at a local school. As we were in the neighborhood, we thought of having dinner at one of our favorite restaurants immediately. The service was outstanding. The drink/wine/beer list very good. My wife had a hamburger special, and I had the blue cheese encrusted sea bass. Yum, yum, and YUM !! It was absolutely delicious. For dessert we had the carrot cake. Absolutely the best!! We love Curley's, would highly recommend it, and will return there again when we can.
