We were traveling from Niagra to Boston. I googled “restaurants near me” and found a couple including The Hollow Bistro & Brew. We decided to give it a try. It is not right off the highway and we did have to backtrack some but it was worth the trip. It is very clean and nicely decorated in old world style.... More

We went to The Hollow Bistro and Brew on New Years Eve with five friends. Everyone knows a restaurant on New Years can be a crazy place. First of all, I loved the cozy atmosphere with the darker wood paneling and friendly staff. The owner was there making sure all was well for her customers. Next, the food was excellent,... More

Excellent food, nice wine list, service can vary, small seating area and bar all in one. Usually crowded, make a reservation.

This is our favorite place to head out for dinner. The menu has many gluten free options which is wonderful. My daughter with Celiacs has eaten here many times safely. My favourite meal is the ginger salmon and cheesy risotto. My husband enjoys the filet with a tasty ceasar salad and anchovies. It always well presented and flavorful. If you... More

On a miserable winter night four of us braved the snow and cold to have dinner at this small restaurant in Clarence, New York. We had made reservations and were given a table in front of the fireplace and enjoyed the warmth of the fire, the friendly staff, and the superb food. The menu, though not real extensive, offered some... More

Let’s first start with the positives. Great service and hostess, nice atmosphere and a creative menu, which included Asian food. Much of the menu is gluten-free. The four of us went for dinner and based upon previous reviews and word of mouth, we were ready for a very good meal. We were, to say the least, disappointed. I started out... More

If you're not local in the area, you don't know about this place. Great cuisine with lots of Asian fusion influence. Had one of the best waitresses I can remember in recent dining experiences. Funny, attentive, but not overwhelming. Make the effort and you'll be happy.
