Private and quiet. The Virginian has an elegant menu. We enjoyed the filet mignon, salads, scallops, and wine.

Allright, were should I begin ? We were wondering were to go to have dinner in Buffalo and ended walking in the main street, when I heard music (live music that is) coming from the "Occidental Saloon". Dropping an eye inside, I discovered both a bar and a restaurant in a, say, historic way of decoration. It was kind of... More

Had dinner with our kids as we were passing through. Dining room did not open until 6 pm on a Friday that did seem a bit odd but we waited. Food was delicious and steaks cooked perfect. My kids had the pear And Gorgonzola ravioli. That was a taste sensation. Atmosphere is 1880 and a great piece if the old... More

Great food, but on our visit the staff were clearly having some communication problems, which reduced our experience from 5/5 to 4/5 Great tasty food , good friendly staff, but basic errors in service, reduce our rating from 5 to 4.

You don't have to ask twice where to go for fine dining. This is top of the line restaurant for dining. It's a special and every bit worth your time to stop.

In 2012 I rated this restaurant with five stars and felt it was one of my favorite dining experiences - ever! This time it was far, far from that! So disappointing! The decor remains totally amazing - in itself worth a visit! I had the ribeye steak which was a standard ribeye. The grilled Caesar salad was mush, a far... More

We journeyed into Buffalo and went into the Occidental Hotel, intending to eat at the saloon. However, the restaurant looked very inviting, so we decided to splurge. There was a large party, with kids,... More
