We have gone a couple times. The menu is just enough - different...fancified bar food if you will. So far, we have enjoyed everything we have gotten except the mac n cheese. It's really not good at all - tastes like noodles with the powder from Kraft mac n cheese. Everything else though - the complete opposite. The roast beef on weck, burgers, sandwiches, poutine fries, fried pickles, Bavarian pretzels, pierogi dish, steak, wings - all really good! Family friendly for kids also. More

Italian | Buffalo, Western New York

One of our favorite venues in Buffalo. Ambience and service are excellent, as were their drink and wine selections. One of my favorite bars, especially pre-theatre. However, the food needs improvement. The chopped salad was excellent, and a single order was more than adequate for the two of us to share. My companion ordered the King Crab legs, and while of excellent quality, they were cold, and the piece I tasted felt and tasted recently thawed. I ordered the Cioppino, which was hot and very good. However it was lacking both the broth in which it is traditionally served, as well as the baguette, or other toast/bread normally served as an accompaniment. More

I used to go to PF Chang’s in Las Vegas frequently, when I lived there. I haven’t been to this location till yesterday! I don’t know why I waited so long! The service was awesome (Sarah), the beer selection good (they had a sign In he entry with “buffolocal” beers) the prices are higher than run of the mill Chinese restaurants, but this is not run of the mill. Food was so tasty my tastebuds were doing a happy dance. We had the surf and turf which consisted of filet, fried shrimp and lobster, the latter of which was surprisingly good. I was a little hesitant when I saw it was fried, but it was tempura style and I liked it. The other dish was the Spicy Chicken, which Sarah had the chef add vegetables to at no cost. Besides that we had the spicy Brussels sprouts which were really good. My date was not a Brussels sprouts fan and he liked them a lot. Go to PF Chang’s for the best local Chinese. More

My wife had French Onion soup. Unfortunately it was cool, not piping hot as it should be served. Drinks were good. Wine pours generous. We stuck with happy hour specials. All good. Blacken Salmon fillet was excellent. Served with mashed potatoes and fresh green beans. All excellent. Good portion. Others had Cobb salad, beef on wick and a fish dish. All very good. Dessert was carrot cake split 4 ways. Very good. We will return. Fred More
