I've eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. They always have such unique fare and use local ingredients when possible. Looking forward to many more meals there.

This is a VERY small restaurant on the Elmwood strip. We sat at the bar which seated 10. Very happy to order Hungarian wine and Polish beer. Had the bread basket (great assortment which came with olive oil and lardus), a Beets 5-Way platter (my favorite veggie), a platter with duck comfit, liver pate, olives, cabbage and some sort of...

It's an interesting atmosphere, certainly not formal but it's comfortable. It's a bit crowded actually with tables real close but diners seem to get along nicely. The menu is very creative and the server well versed in describing the dishes. Every thing that was presented to our table was delicious and beautifully presented. The wine list was good and the...

Bistro Europa was one of the biggest surprises I've had in Buffalo. The first time I went was over lunch one day and splurged bc everything sounded so amazing. I'm a big fan of farm to table restaurants so this was a pleasant surprise. I've had the basil lemonade, a fresh pasta with squash and the sticky toffee pudding -... More

Thinking about Bistro Europa's move to Connecticut street prompted me to pay them another visit on Elmwood. You never know what changes are in store when a great place relocates, and I guess I just wanted to create another memory - just as it is today. I made a reservation and, thankfully, got one of the last tables available. They... More

I was visiting friends in Buffalo, and I have to say that my pasta dish at Bistro Europa was one of the tastiest dinners I have ever had! The combination of ingredients, the sublime sauce, the textures, and the rich taste made it absolutely delicious. This small place is a big winner!

Visited here on a Friday night with friends who made reservations far in advance. A very small dining room. Maybe 8 tables. Good wine and beer list. Began with a local greens salad with local pears topped with a gorgonzola dressing with Marcona almonds. Two of us had it and thought it was one of the best salads we had... More

The title says it all. We stopped in for a quick bite this week and were blown AWAY by the pierogis! Now I know what they are supposed to taste like. Wow. Soup was fabulous as well. Don't miss this experience. I have been reading pierogi recipes ever since and am going to try to replicate. Will dream of these!... More

My first visit to Bistro Europa was a revelation. It’s a tiny, unobtrusive restaurant in the Elmwood Village section on the West Side of Buffalo. It bills itself as offering “Pan-European” cuisine. Its menu is small but diversified, and it’s changed regularly (the current web page offers “Tonight’s Specials.”) Constants are its charcuterie and cheese plates, ‘though the offerings on... More

My most recent visit to Bistro Europa was Saturday lunch, fabulous sandwiches, sloppy Joe (a special) for me, Reuben for companion. The chef here is endlessly creative and is to be given very much credit for using local meats and veggies. Dessert was also a special, creative take on apple crisp. The beer selection is very interesting, and goes well... More
