Both meals were excellent, service was good and patio is wonderful. Typically a very busy restaurant, so don't expect to be in and out quickly, enjoy the food and outdoor patio atmosphere.

I have heard of Plano's and seen the commercials. Went with a party of 3 and we all enjoyed appetizers, main meal and desserts. The food and service was very well done. In the heart of the Elmwood Avenue, it does have some limited off street parking. The price probably the most surprising aspect of the night, very reasonable. I... More

The only thing we could find enjoyable about Elmwood Village was Pano's restaurant. The food is great as is the service, and if the weather is nice, you can sit on the patio or on the second floor with a wide-open view of the street action below. Also be sure to check out the fabulous glass sculpture on the wall... More

If you are of the belief that "less is more," than Panos will disappoint you…simply, because all of their dishes are thoughtfully prepared, and not short on volume. Of course, their legendary chicken and beef souvlaki are always worth the wait (even after a two-story expansion and outdoor seating, there is still a queue at peak times for tables)…but, I... More

Been going to Panos since before the rebuild, use to be the best place to go and eat well and cheap after partying late into the night in college, it located right down the street from Buffalo State College. Now its much nicer, with a larger menu, but it still breakfast that brings me back time and time again. Love... More

This was our 3rd time at Pano's. I have been thinking of returning for several months now and when I praised it to a friend, they became curious and wanted to go too. I had the same meal (again) - can't beat it: two filet mignons & a lobster tail, also the greek potato. Food was all yummy, steak tender,... More

Had a chicken souvlaki salad and it was very good, in fact one of the best here locally, especially if you substitute mixed greens for the regular lettuce they give you. Service was great, prices are fair, I will be back for more soon!

Three of us enjoyed the Vegetarian Platter Entree. It was delicious but I think would have been too much for one person. A wonderful array of humus, Kalamata olives, spinach rice,toasted beans, roasted veggies and lettuce, tomato and red onion. Served with toasted pita bread and also served with their bread basket and sundried tomato spread. Very filling and satisfying... More

My husband and I recently ate at PANO'S and we loved every bite. I had Greek and my husband had a steak. Every bite was flavorful and there was plenty of food! I thought the atmosphere was nice, but the stairs gave my husband a little trouble. I would definitely go back and take my friends and family with me.
