“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I went with my wife and thought it was decorated nice inside. But the food selection not too big. Usually we will order an appetizer but couldn't really find one that was appealing. Entrees were on the pricey side.

“Christmas Eve Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We have been going out to dinner for Fine Dining for two decades. We normally have a party of around 10 for immediate family and this was our first year at this restaurant. The food was delicious and the we had a wonderful time. The atmosphere was a little disappointing, but will just request a different area of the restaurant this year. The prices are expensive, but we were on the Special holiday menu, so that is to be expected

“Great food, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Situated in an old house, this place is very cozy with a modern bistro decor. Upscale casual. Everyone in our party had a great meal.

This could have been a 5, but......service in the dining room was slow and inattentive at times. And we were seated on the second floor in what appeared to be a new addition to the old building - felt like an overflow area - and it simply lacked the character of the rest of the place.

But all-in-all we liked it very much and will return.

“Wonderful gourmet restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Rick's on Main is a culinary gem in the beautiful village of East Aurora. It is a great place for couples and adults--not a place for picky teenagers or small children. The atmosphere is beautiful and cozy. The servers are very attentive. The menu is always creative. The food is excellent.

“Food-so so, place-great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Rick's has excellent wait staff, the best bartender in town (John will keep you laughing) and excellent lunches, hearty salads. Favorite lunch is the scallop tostadas. Very good soup, too. The interior is warm and inviting, clean and comfortable. 5 star staff for sure. Not a great thing to have lunch be the highlight though. I love the people and the venue but the dinners are lackluster. Same pile of shredded vegetables on many plates. Varying the veg would be a nice change. They are easy to cook and not hard to make tasty. The fish dishes are so over priced and disappointing. The meat dishes have cheese or butter sauce or sweet toppings. These are not necessarily bad but weigh down the food. Extras like that should compliment the food, not take it over. Pastas are good but a little more generosity with seafood might help balance the prices.
