It's a swanky old steakhouse. Dark wood and old decor, but the food and service are very good. No truffles (except the dessert kind) or fois gras here, just good old fashion steakhouse cuisine. It seems to be a popular place with the bar crammed with locals, all known by their first name. Servers are attentive, light hearted and friendly.... More

From the moment mom & I arrived in the middle of a busy Thursday night, we had a wonderful experience here. They were packed, since it is Local Restaurant Week here in Buffalo, but we were seated in less than 15 minutes. The service was warm, friendly, and super fast. We shared the petite filet medallions in Madeira sauce, tender... More

We are from out of town and we're looking for a local cuisine not a chain restaurant. Adam's rib lived up to our expectations we had a wonderful meal in a local atmosphere and good wines all prices are very reasonable. Put it on your list.

Restaurant week selection. The food was just ok, not much flavor. The one item we did enjoy was the broccoli cheese soup. There was a smell in the restaurant that I couldn't make out, wasn't so pleasant.

Decided to go with some co-workers to dinner because of restaurant week after reading all of the positive reviews but was very disappointed. I had the lobster ravioli and sadly it was very cold and seemed a bit under cooked and honestly not all that delicious. My friends got ribs and the presentation was something that you would see in...

Very small quiet resturant . Easy to talk and visit without shouting. The menu is very basic and easy to make a choice . Food quality is consistent both times I have been there I would say it's a good neighborhood to try

Decided to give Adams Restaurant a try during Restaurant Week. After sampling 4 other eating establishment this week, we treated neighbors to dinner there. It was embarrassing. The food was cold and of a very poor quality. Will not return.

Candles. Red table cloths. Red cushioned chairs. Wood panel walls. Dark ceilings. Few modern art paintings. Small dining area. All contribute to a comfortable and pleasant relaxing atmosphere. Good menu of steaks, chicken and fish. I enjoyed my prime rib - not the best, but decent. Attentive service. I'd return.

Adams Rib has been around for a very long time, and with good reason: they serve excellent food at a reasonable price. I was leery about going here because of the not so great reviews..I'm glad they didn't deter me. The atmosphere was perfect: calm and relaxing. I really dislike restaurants that are so loud that you can't carry on... More

I live and work in the neighborhood. I have been going here for dinner and lunch for decades. A recent (about 1 1/2 years ago) ownership change has now been fully implemented. The food quality has declined from the former good-very good to the present fair to good. The bar - both quality and service - has declined from excellent... More
