Our dining experience at Patina was simply amazing! The ambiance was spectacular all round! The food selections were quite impressive and our entire meal was absolutely out of this world and definitely exceeded our expectations!
Finally, the wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable about the different dishes and their ingredients and served us well!
We will be back for sure!

From the moment we arrived until the time we finished dessert, our experience was fantastic. Franklin was our server for the evening and not only was he friendly and efficient but extremely knowledgeable about the menu and was able to offer many great recommendations. The food was all very delicious and fresh, and the presentation of everything was tasteful and elegant. The service was spectacular and we will certainly recommend our friends and family to make reservations! Thank You for a wonderful evening.

Lunch with my aunt and two friends in a quiet booth and, later that evening, a dinner party with dear friends in the private dining room--the staff, service, and good at Patina 250 were superb! Special acknowledgement to Dave, our server, and Cody, overseeing our arrangements, who along with hosts and other staff made our special occasion seamless and elegant.

The cheese plate appetizer was surprisingly unique and delicious- especially the local bread! Absolutely loved the soup, and my husband's salmon was cooked perfectly. Adored my mocktail, and my husband's scotch drink was superb, perfectly balanced! Our server, Peter, was incredibly attentive and personable, and even the hostess chatted with us and we had a great conversation! Hope to come back next time we're in town!

First time there. Overall a very pleasant evening. Entire hotel staff is exceptionally courteous and helpful. Waiter was young, perhaps newer, very good and friendly but seemed to have too many tables to keep track of. So, timing was a little off and we had to wait way too long for a second drink from the bar. Also had to ask for bread. Food came out promptly though and was very good but fish entree portions were very small. My short ribs were excellent. On the quiet side so you could carry on conversation which was much appreciated. I would go back.

Tim, Thank you for posting this feedback about your experience at Patina 250. I am sorry to hear that the timing was off. We have made many changes over the past year to make sure that our timing and service is better than what you experienced. This is valuable information that will be used in our pre-shift meetings this week. Hope to see you soon! Thanks again,

Quality of food was absolutely absurd for cost. What a beautiful restaurant with what seems to be a disappointing kitchen. $50 for a fillet that needed sauce, two onions, and a little starch side. Turkey confit meat was dry and skin was so tough it was inedible. So unfortunate for what is considered to be “one of Buffalo’s best”. Yes, we attended the restaurant on a holiday evening— but that is what I needed to do for my family this year. If you’re open on a holiday, the quality of the food should be the same— if not better!

The service was excellent and the food tasty. The menu is limited and very pricey.
We sat in the front room and that helped it to be quiet, which we appreciated.

Second time dining at Patina 250. Tonight’s meal was perfect. Our waiter Kevin was truly a delight and a big part of the evening’s success. From the moment he greeted us to his final goodbye he was engaging and helpful. Kevin was attentive without being intrusive. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and the restaurant. Prior to our ordering he spent a few moments discussing the meals and how many of the ingredients were locally sourced and how the meats and pastas were prepared. My wife and I found him to be both informative and entertaining. Kevin is truly an asset to Patina 250. I started out with the apple and squash soup. It was both delicious and appealing to the eye in its presentation. My wife had the roasted squash salad. It too was very good. Both were plentiful enough that we traded half way through and enjoyed each other’s starter. My wife had the sea bass with a creamed spinach tart. She said that it was perfectly prepared and delicious. I chose the Berkshire pork chop. I was very pleased with the presentation and flavor of this meal. The pork is locally sourced and was cooked to perfection. I enjoyed it so much that I found myself trying to cut every remaining piece off of the bone. For dessert we shared a gingerbread cheesecake. It was very good and and excellent finish to our meal. I found their prices to be quite reasonable, especially for the level of service received. I recommend dining here and will return myself.

My only complaint is that I was only a quarter of the way done with my appetizer when the entree was served, despite telling the server that I was in absolutely no hurry multiple times.

Had a really nice fall themed dinner. Loved the specials this week. We shared the pistachio crusted goat cheese salad and it was one of the best I've had. The warm ricotta appetizer was unique and tasty as well. And will you look at this lamb? Perfectly rare, well seasoned with a nice char. Really lovely. Our server, the managers and bar staff were attentive throughout, without being obtrusive. My bestie and I had a really nice evening out. Looking forward to the next time!

Service was great, our waiter was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Food was outstanding, although, $50 for a 6oz. steak is a bit much in my opinion.

We went for our two-year anniversary dinner/my birthday. It was our first time here and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our server Matt was amazing (thank you) and the other staff we interacted with were extremely friendly. The food was great, some dishes we tried like the pierogies were a little lacking in flavor but overall we had a great time and will definitely return.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. All the staff, from the hostess to the servers were absolutely wonderful, they were friendly and appropriately attentive. The service was perfectly timed, and the entree's arrived hot and perfectly seasoned. Complements to the Chef and his staff. It was a very enjoyable experience!

The food was good. Our waitress Jessica was awesome! I wish we weren't sat at a table so close to other customers. The five tables squished next to each other are way too close. There was an open booth. I wish we were sat there. Nice restaurant. Good athmosphere.

Salads definitely lacking. Dressing & greens nice, but so little finely grated cheese that it didn’t add any flavor. Those who ordered smoked salmon added to their salads were extremely disappointed: fine flakes mixed in providing very little flavor for $7.00?! No bread/rolls with the salads.

Terrible rude service. Our party was asked to leave out table because the waitress said she needed it and the resturant was empty I will never never never go there again and I have told everyone I know about our terrible experience. They emb erased us, we were a very respectful group, no one was REALY drinking much, we spent a lot of money there and got treated terrible. I hate this place, I hope it goes out of business , it dose not deserve to be in that beautiful hotel

I have also spoken to another person that was in your group that voiced her concern for the way that you were treated. I am so sorry for what happened. This is not our standard operating procedure & the employee that decided to take matters into their own hands has been dealt with. I sincerely hope that you will consider giving us another try so we can show you what Patina 250 is all about.
