“Food excellent; tight quarters”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

Went last Saturday and absolutely enjoyed one of the regular menu items which was ravioli basil with a walnut pesto cream sauce along with an addition of their Italian sausage and their version of a pasta bolgonese, which my dining partner thoroughly enjoyed. We started with the soup of the day which was a creamy chicken dijonaise offering. For those of you who like mushrooms, it was loaded with small slivers. I am not a mushroom tolerator but the soup with its tender chicken chunks was so silky and smooth that I did my normal practice and ate all around the mushrooms.
I cannot crow enough about the ravioli. It was filled with cheese, the pasta was cooked to my liking, not slippery but not too chewy. The pesto sauce was the most glorious with hint of finely chopped walnuts and lots of garlic. A sprinkling of assagio cheese completed the dish. My palate certainly wanted to finish this in one sitting but I used restraint and took the rest with me which with a bit of reheating, did not disappoint the next day. You will be sitting quite close to your fellow diners if you are seated creekside. My dining partner had one glass of the house cabernet which was $10.00. I am not a wine drinker so I don't know if that is a going rate or not. If you want something beside the house wine, you have to purchase by the bottle which can range from $25 and up. For me the food is a good value, particularly since the menu is varied and imaginative. I will definitely put this on my "must return" list when I am in town again.

“Great place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Creekview is the go to place in our area. We can go there as a couple or as a family. There is a covered patio for scenic views of the creek or indoor dining also. Friendly atmosphere and good food. We can always count on Creekview.

“A great restaurant in the heart of Williamsville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Very good food, in fact, some of the best for the price in the area. Had a special last time, salmon with olive tapenade...outstanding. This was one of the best salmon dishes I've had in WNY. Unfortunately, it is not a regular on their menu. However, the other fish dishes are definitely worth ordering. Their lunch menu is also varied, good, and reasonably priced. It is nice to sit on the covered all seasons patio, if you are lucky enough to snag one of those tables. Be advised that when busy, parking is difficult.

“Food is okay, personnel polite, but logistic could be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

The restaurant is nice, located next to a river in a cosy place. The personnel was polite and the menu attractive. Food is okay. However, it lacks a little polish. Portions are generous but missed refinement. Was with a group of twelve and this was shared by many. Also, we choose this restaurant for its location next to the river but were told, on arrival, groups were located on the restaurant "parking side". Got no view of the river at all. The personnel looks a bit disorganized when taking orders. The checks were mixed-up, part of one order with another etc. Would maybe give it another try, but certainly not with a group.
