A friend and I went to the Brick Oven Bistro the other night after hearing so many good things about this place. When we pulled up in front, it looked closed, it was very dark inside, but after going inside, you could see most of the action was in the back of the restaurant. We were immediately seated at a table in front, waitress was very friendly and helpful. I ordered the beef short rib dinner, friend got chicken parm, both were excellent. I can only rave about this place, service fast and professional, food of great quality and creatively prepared. Will go back soon and try one of their specialty pizzas.It seem like people in the know in South Buffalo go to the Brick Oven Bistro!!!!

Party of 3 for lunch. I had the steak and pepper hoagie; wife had turkey pannini, and guest had a meatball pizza. We all were more than satisfied.
The steak sandwich was cheesy and tasty but the peppers got a bit hot as the meal progressed (not a problem, just a fact). The pizza has a very thin crust and extremely cheesy. Need a knife and fork to eat if you don't want to be too messy. The pannini was well prepared; all meals came with fries or other sides that are well prepared.
This restaurant has two seatings: lunch from noon to 3 and then close until dinner, 5ish I think. Have not been there for dinner and no knowledge of the menu
Because of proximity to an elementary school, bar is limited to beer and wine. There is a large selection for this.
Parking is limited but the side street is easily available. Do not let that discourage you. Definitely worth the visit

It's so awesome to see this place transform from a small groceries store to this fine dinning establishment. The food is just lovely. I truly enjoy the brick oven pizza's, especially the beef on weck pizza. The wait is sometimes a bit longer than it needs to be but overall everything is totally worthwhile! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to eat in South Buffalo.

I love the bar and extensive beer menu here but the food and service aren't up to par. The food is inconsistent and waitresses always seem to be in a hurry. Also, the atmosphere in the front of the restaurant is so much different from the back where the bar is. This place used to be a small grocery store and they converted it to a restaurant and they need to do a little more with the restaurant section such as add some white table cloths, get carpeting, and add some more speakers for music. Right now it feels kind of like a cafeteria. I love the back where the bar is so they just need to match the front with the back and and make the food better and it would be a 5!

Delicious food & great wine. So many beers!! Pizzas were very yummy & the salads were wonderful. We went for our monthly family dinner. Each month we try to go to different places & try new restaurants. This one was fun & friendly. We all enjoyed it and plan to go back again.
