The Hollow Bistro is a small quiet restaurant. White tablecloths and cloth napkins give your dining experience an elegant feel. The menu offers uniquely prepared items, as well as traditional choices. The food and it's presentation are pleasing to the palate and the eye. The service was good. I think it takes a while to get your food. But, to... More

I have had the pleasure of dining at The Hollow several times and have it as one of my go-to places. I love the variety of specials that are offered nightly and the creativity of the bar options. The standard menu should not be overlooked, as it has many great items as well. My husband raves over the Hollow burger... More

We have been going to the restaurant for over 3 years now and still continue to be blown away by the place. Most recently we ordered the Asian fish and the pasta special - both came out piping hot and were very good. The bartender was quite friendly and recommended an excellent drink of the day special. What continues to... More

Stopped here for the first time Saturday afternoon. The Server recommended the Chopped Romaine Salad for myself and the Chicken Finger Platter for my 4-year-old daughter. Service was outstanding and my daughter keeps asking me when we can go back to see her new friend that gave her crayons and a Pooh coloring book! Our food was delivered quickly and... More

It was our first visit and arrived more than an hour before the kitchen stopped taking orders. I ordered a salad which was nice and my partner ordered a chicken dish with risotto which was pretty bland and a Caesar salad that needed more dressing and the cheese on it seemed to be mozzarella. Half way into our meal we... More

I have been to The Hollow Bistro 3 times. Food is okay. Service is terrible and the food takes at least 45- minutes to an hour to come out. This is what I experienced on all 3 visits. I live in Clarence however I felt the atmosphere was stuffy and you were only treated with respect if you were a... More

Tried the Hollow last night with friends....really enjoyed our visit...the décor and atmosphere was really comfortable and the food is much better than average...really good variety...they might inform the servers that Gouda and Mozzerella cheese are NOT the same but other than that, we had a great time

Had an early dinner on Mother’s Day. Only 3 other tables occupied. Pleasant greetings by hostess and server. Had shrimp cocktail that was room temperature and just thawed frozen (and limp) shrimp. Wife’s salmon portion was good-sized by the risotto was lacking flavor. My pasta dish was ok but nothing great. Busboy removed wife’s mimosa without asking before she got... More

Happened to stop here based on the feedback from friends. It is small and intimate, yet the food is so awesome - not your run of the mill food - had a salmon salad which was so excellent - the service was very good - the prices are right in the ballpark - I will return again and try more... More

I have been to the Hollow Bistro 3 times now. I was just checking the menu, in hopes of visiting again this coming weekend. The food in very fresh. Original offerings, it's hard to choose what to have. I'm thinking the Lobster Sweat Pea Penne this time around. We're always in the area shopping. So much better than the chain... More
