It was a beautiful summer evening in downtown Buffalo, so we opted to dine outside (also because seating inside was EXTREMELY loud). Food and wine were very good and would certainly return. The only complaint was the service wasn't the greatest. Took far too long...More

Sat at the bar with my girlfriend. Had a few drinks and appetizers. The bar is small, but quaint, you easily get the bartenders attention, but can still enjoy a quiet conversation. Food is fabulous, and the service is great!

I went there for a dinner with friends. Good service and good food. I highly recommend the “raclette” meal if you like cheese as it is the perfect meal to enjoy time with friends or your spouse as you eat at your pace.
