SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!

Great food, good atmosphere, very clean and the service is fantastic. Easy to get to and lots of parking. Depending on the night you go weekends you will need reservations for dinner.

If you're in the Buffalo area. I recommend you go to Chef's for dinner. They have amazing food and waitresses/waiters. I had a Tuscany salad. (Grilled chicken salad) it was amazing. I give it 5 stars. If I could, id give it 100 stars.

You must get their Spaghetti Parmesan! It's got a ton of cheese melted over spaghetti. Sauce is on the side and they have meat or marinara. It's decently priced and close to downtown if you're headed to a game or concert. Get reservations if something is going on though!

We were seated at the time of our reservation. Lots of customers waiting for tables in a full restaurant on a Saturday evening. I guess I don't understand the popularity. My chicken francaise tasted "sweet" , Italian bread was doughy, and the sauce on the pasta was also very sweet tasting . Others at the table enjoyed their food so... More

Love Love Love the Spaghetti parm. If you love cheese this is right for you. The Boneless Chicken Cacciatora is full of flavor and hardy with peppers and onions Irv Special is mouth watering as well- Spirals noodles with sauteed mushrooms, pepperoncini and onions in a cacciatora sauce

We recently hosted the rehearsal dinner for our son's wedding at Chef's and were very pleased with the food, atmosphere and service. Kudos to Chef's for helping us to have a relaxing couple of hours in the middle of a busy weekend. Thank you!

Was with a friend who was born and raised in Buffalo who insisted we go to Chef's for dinner last month! It didn't disappoint at all! I had the seafood ravioli and it was delicious. Once I saw another table order the cassata cake I had to order a piece to share! Great service as well!

The spaghetti parm is our family's favorite here. Great place to stop before heading to First Niagara Center before hockey games, concerts, etc, it's so close. Food is reasonably priced with big portions, service is great. Love the sauce here and they always give you extra.

nI went to Chef's with friends to sample the Sauce or Gravy some call it. I noticed all the dishes coming out of the kitchen, they looked scrumptious. So much on the menu to choose from. All Italian dishes. I ordered the Veal Scalopen, and loved it. All the dishes we ordered were tested by everyone. The food was very... More
