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.

I live close to here and visit once or twice a month minimum. The food is outstanding, I generally get either the pan seared chicken, the filet, the portabella mushroom salad with chicken, or the pork porterhouse, which is my favorite, and I've recommended that they change the name of this item to the "Porterhollow" it is a very unique...

The Bistro has been a welcome addition to dining options in Clarence (and within walking distance of home too). Their food is of the highest quality, their staff is friendly and professional and the owner makes a point of visiting each table to assure all is as it should be. Portions are ample and prices are quite acceptable. Don't be... More
