Excellent gourmet food, small menu but something for everyone. The service was excellent. The food was delicious w/ beautiful presentations. Was perfect for our anniversary dinner.

Even though it was busy we were given a table right away. There was wine and beer tasting. The food was unique and was very good but the portions were a little small. The server was very attentive and had a nice personality.

This establishment brings back the "Clarence" experience from when I grew up here. My family has lived here since 1961. The Service and quality of food are wonderful. The fact that the owner is a member of a long standing Clarence family shows the dedication to this community. I moved to DC and South Florida 10 years ago but Clarence... More

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
