Chefs is a prominent restaurant in Buffalo that is known for their parmed spaghetti. This is really all one should consider ordering at Chefs as unfortunately the menu, though it may look promising, isn't prepared well. Most items are overpriced, and dinners, even those costing upwards of $15.00 don't even include a small iceberg salad. Red sauce is much too... More

We went to Chefs on the recommendation of our driver for our rental car company. It was an excellent choice. It is easy to get to for an out of town traveler. We both had the spaghetti parm (which is a bowl of spaghetti covered in mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce on the side). Very yummy! Order the small size... More

We have always enjoyed Chef's food, service and hospitality. However, just be cautious if you want to hold an event there. Our party had about 40 people and it was way too cramped with a limited menu. Parties of 30 or less should be OK. Chef's is much more inviting when you can salivate over the many menu items and...

I am an Italian nut, and when I was in Buffalo, someone told us about Chefs. The atmosphere is average and the food prices a bit pricey but it was well worth the visit. The service was excellent and so was the pasta, although a little bit on the sweet side. Overall everything was excellent and I will definitely be... More

We were staying in Downtown Buffalo and called Chef's to see if they could take us close to 9PM. The valet at the hotel was a bit backed up. We phoned the restaurant on our way and said that we might end up arriving at 9:02 instead of 8:55, would that be a problem? The person on the phone checked... More

Everyone in Buffalo knows Chef's. I love their sauce- it's on the sweet side. Place is clean and service good. Unfortunately it is a bit pricey for what you get, but then again it is a landmark.

Well, I finally made it in to Chef's after assuming it was all hype my whole life. (Being turned away from their near empty restaurant for not having a reservation a few months back left a bad taste in my mouth, so we were slow to return. I understand saving tables for game days....but none of those people were going... More

One word for this place, WOW! The food is to die for, get it parm! Very clean friendly staff, large portions for your money, great atmosphere, and authentic Italian food.

The spaghetti parm was great, just didn't think the portions were appropriate for the price! All in all it was great!
