After reading the poor reviews regarding service I took a chance because I really wanted a Falafel sandwich and was desperate! Let me start by saying that I am a true foodie and am very critical of food establishments. The service was OUTSTANDING! Now I must say that I did not encounter the owner but the hostess and waitress were... More

In Buffalo you have an overwhelming selection of Greek and Mediterranian food choice. I also go to Rochester a lot where there are some unbeatable spots. The Towne, Family Tree, The Wherle, Athens, Mythos, Acropolis, Alladins. All of these with the exception of Alladins are easy consistantly great food that is fresh and well prepared. So we thought we'd try... More

After my lunch at this place with a business colleague, we had the unpleasant experience of meeting the unbelievably rude owner, whom our waiter had wrily described as "fiery." Hah! We had complained about the unannounced $2 upcharge for a teensy dish of sauce for our falafel sandwiches (which I would have thought would have already included sauce), and told... More

We stopped here a a whim as we drove past. Some of the best Mediterranean food I've ever had. I grew up in an area where I had Greek and Lebanese often. The food here reminded me of home. Started the meal with the Traditional Maza , a sampler platter that was enough for four people. Our main dishes were... More

We went to the Falafel bar for the first time today. It was delicious! We started with the hummus with fried mushrooms and onions which was amazing. The waitress was wonderful helping us decide what to order. We will be back!

Falafel Bar has a new menu that clearly shows which items are dairy free, gluten free and which could be made dairy free upon request. As someone with an allergy to dairy products, this is extremely helpful and takes the guess work out of ordering. The staff is very accomodating and the owner top-notch. Love the outdoor patio in the... More
