We recently visited The Hollow for dinner and although not totally overwhelmed, we were quite impressed with the tiny bistro. A previous reviewer called the restaurant a "jewel", and indeed it is quite a gem. Perfect location. We walked in and were immediately impressed with our surroundings, tablecloths, candlelight, and dark wood in addition to a very long bar.The hostess... More

I love the way the owner greets us as we arrive. She must be an awesome boss because the quality of her staff is off the hook. So professional and so accommodating. Well done.

We called ahead to make sure they could accommodate a party of 8 with little notice. When we arrived, our table was ready and waiting for us. The service was top notch and everyone raves about the food. If we are ever in Clarence again, we will definitely return.

The quality of the food, ombiance and service is comparable to a Manhatten eatery. It is top notch in providing unique entrees. The food is fresh and healthy. This is a definite destination that you will undoubtedly want to repeat.

Great ambiance. Many beers to chose from, and a great menu! The food tasted great, and was in managable portions. Service was excellent to. Nice local place with a family feel to it.

The Hollow Bistro is one of our favorite restaurants. Its settled into the heart of the Hollow in Clarence NY, a quaint small town and one of the oldest suburbs of Buffalo. This restaurant has fabulous food and a cozy atmosphere. Sure to be one of your favorites once you visit.

We have enjoyed several meals on past trips to the Niagara/Buffalo area, with creative food and a nice selection of beers and wines. Service is always friendly, and the décor is warm and inviting. It has become our ‘go-to’ place when in the area, especially on Mondays, when fewer options are available in the area. However, their attempt to celebrate... More

Every time I go home to visit my family, I make sure I add this place to my "to-do's." Their food has always been excellent, with their homemade soups always a mix of delicious flavor. Reservations are a must as this is a popular spot, especially with how few tables there are on the inside - it fills quickly! I... More
