My boyfriend surprised me with Valentines dinner. The atmosphere was very nice candlelight. They tried to fit as many people as they possibly could in the small room. I would have enjoyed myself much more if we were spread apart from other couples. Food and drinks were good, the menu was very limited for the holiday. I would love to... More

I love Torches. I haven't been in over a year and after recommending the place to so many people lately, I had to finally go back myself. I like that they give you an iPad to look at alongside the menu. A lot of the items on the menu sound strange and are hard to picture. The idea of knowing... More

Good variety and young and creative chefs. Small Kenmore venue but always good fare. Menu changes a lot but that's Ok because it is usually very creative and presented well. Good drinkls and on site parking too. Give them a try!

Tonight was the perfect example of a positive restaurant experience in Buffalo NY. Restaurant Week is a great way to experience a new culinary adventure. And Torches outdid themselves with not only excellent food but A+ service . Chef JJ offers a world class and innovative menu. You must try this hidden gem. You will not be disappointed

“Í love to cook for people,” says J J Richert. That’s a good thing as he and his brother, Kevin, both veterans of the Western New York culinary scene, turn out some of the most sophisticated dining in town. The menu is, to say the least, eclectic blending flavors from around the world (Asian, Jamaican) with good old American comfort... More

Our party of three has no complaints about our recent dinner here. The food was all fabulous, service was exceptional and well paced. If you check their menu online, don't get your heart set on any one item, as the menu seems to change with some degree of regularity. They started us with an amuse bouche - a good-sized piece...

Our family went to Torches to celebrate our daughter's 34th birthday this past month and thoroughly enjoyed everything about our evening. Our special celebratory drinks before and after the meal were delicious, and each dish from the appetizers through the yummy cheesecake at the end of the meal was a delight! The servers both at the bar and in the... More

I went their for a birthday. The atmosphere was quaint, the menu was interesting and the way the server presented the specials was something I've never experienced before. She brought over something that looked like an iPad and showed us the specials. It also demonstrated what ingredients were chosen for the chefs creations. There were pictures of the owners shopping... More

The effort of two creative brothers, Torches offers a sophisticated menu, eye-catching presentation and a unique way to choose your selections. The attentive server presented the nightly specials on an IPad, complete with picture, ingredients and price. He left the IPad with us which permitted a pictorial view of each appetizer, salad, entree and dessert. Certainly made selection more difficult... More
