“Deserves Its Rating.”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Had lunch there on a recent stay. Looked it up on Trip Advisor and went there for lunch. It was 3pm when we got there and the place was 3/4 full. A good sign and it did not disappoint. Food was excellent and service was good also.
A warning though: Ellicottville water has some sort of mineral that gives it an off-taste to me. If you order water anywhere in Eville, it is the same thing, not just Dina's water.

“Great place for breakfast”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

For a good breakfast, eat here.

We were passing through the area on a long roadtrip and this place turned up on a web search. We were attracted by this description: “Dina’s prepares satisfying, healthy foods that appeal to a health-conscious clientele. …made to order from local, fresh ingredients whenever possible.” That describes me and the kind of food I’m looking for. And I am happy to pay a little extra to get real food but don’t want to pay just for a trendy “green” image or a bunch of frou-frou. We were pleasantly surprised that Dina's did exactly this.

Dina’s delivered an excellent breakfast fairly quickly to our party of 3 couples. All food was excellent. Omelets were perfect and flavorful, not greasy or tasting like they were scraped off a nasty grill. Pancakes were very good. I had the eggs benedict with avocado: I normally don’t trust most restaurants to get this right but here it was done perfectly and was absolutely delicious. Tasty homemade salsa, nice wheat toast, good lattes. Prices roughly $7-11 plus your drink and any extras. So it costs only a slight bit more than Perkins or Cracker Barrel, but the food is noticably better.

Everything was clean and in its place, and the room had nice decor. Good service.

One of our favorite choices for dining in Eville. All the choices are consistently good and are enjoyed by both the adults and the kids.

“Very good variety of consistently well prepared and served food!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Dina's is one of our favorite places to dine in Ellicottville. We've been there for great breakfasts and lunches, but dinner is truly our preferred time to go there.

One of the things we love about Dina's is the fact that you can eat light or "go big". Appetizers, like baked brie, crab cakes and calamari are among those we like best. There's a wide range of soups and salads and a huge variety of pizzas and although we haven't tried them all, we are close to reaching that point and have never been disappointed.

Main courses include pastas, seafood, steaks, ribs and chicken. A diverse selection of beer and wine to accompany your food choice is there too. We've actually never eaten dessert there, as we've always been more than satisfied with dinner.

Service had always been good and the only times we've had to wait more than a few minutes for our food were when it was extremely busy. I've heard people say that Dina's is expensive, but although it's not a "cheap" place to eat, we feel that things are reasonably priced, given the quality of the food.
