The food is always great. Prices are not cheap but very reasonable. Atmosphere is good. Good patio too. Never disappointed. A little too crowded sometimes. Could use more space. Usually not an issue though.

My boyfriend and I visited Pano's Restaurant for breakfast, based on the reviews we read from Tripadvisor. The restaurant was located in a trendy area within the heart of downtown Buffalo. The decor of the restaurant was also quite nice too. I ordered "panos special", which consisted of; 2 buttermilk pancakes, 2 eggs and home fries. All I can say... More

Great restaurant with a good variety of dishes. We had 6 at our table and all ordered something different. All were really good.

Two stories of an attractive local eatery in the now trendy Elmwood Village section of downtown Buffalo. Service was excellent, food was tasty, but nothing special. We had non-Greek entrees, so maybe there Greek specialties are the real deal. Great for hearty appetites as the portions are enormous.

Everyone in the Buffalo area know s Pano's. Two levels of dining. Large menu from breakfast to late night snacks. It is on the Elmwood Strip with various shops, galleries and other restaurants nearby. Parking lot is small and usually crowded. Elmwood is a busy street and parking is always a challenge.

This review is in reference to the take out service only. I just called Panos to order a take out item.( August 10, 2015 11:35 am) The man on the phone was curt, rude and actually hung up on me as I finished telling him my order. A pleasant good bye would have been great, or even a polite hello,... More

You have to love Pano's. I am not just talking about the restaurant but the man himself. He is a great restaurateur and a great "Buffalonian." You cannot miss at this place. For any kind of an engagement whether it be breakfast, lunch dinner, whatever. I was taking my office staff out to lunch, just because, and they could have... More

Went for a light dinner with some friends (7). Five of us ordered the lettuce wraps appetizer. I ordered mine without mushrooms. The waitress, Rachel, wrote down "no mushrooms". When the orders came up, the people delivering the food asked where the lettuce wraps went. I told him one should be without mushrooms and he told me that one was... More
