“Among the top restaurants in Buffalo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We checked with Trip Advisor, even though we are locals, to help us decide where to go one recent evening. Buffalo is blessed with a surprisingly good selection of great restaurants. We ended up going to Hutch's. It was outstanding. What is surprising is that the current Trip Advisor has Hutch's listed at number 16 in Buffalo, and that is ridiculous. Locals might disagree about the order in which the top 5 should be listed, but Hutch's would be in the top five on any list prepared by those who have been to them all. There is a menu, but there is also an extensive list of specials. It keeps things from getting dull, and both the regular menu items and specials are almost always outstanding. I had a halibut dish from the specials menu. The halibut was pan seared and had great flavor. It was accompanied by sugar snap peas and the "starch" was pureed celery root. Everything was perfectly prepared and just delicious. My wife had a Moroccan style salmon, again from the list of specials, and she raved. No adventures in the dessert department, however, Hutch's is well known for its almond lace cookie cup. We like to think the fruit is healthy. The sugary, buttery, crisp cookie cup, the whipped cream and the bed of caramel sauce not so much, but it is certainly a candidate for best dessert ever. The only problem with Hutch's is that it can be noisy when busy and it is always busy. This place would be among the best restaurants in any city.

“Overrated and much ado about nothing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

As usual, the Buffalo mentality makes a big to do about a place that is way overrated. Staff has attitude, atmosphere is much better at other places and food is not outstanding or special. It appears to be more of a place you brag abut going, but there is nothing upscale about it. Staff needs to drop the attitutde and the " I am doing you a favor to wait on you". mentality.

“The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Dined at Hutch's after attending theater last night. My wife and I have gone here many times over the past thirty or so years, and the experience was once again what it has ALWAYS been: First Class. Hutch's never fails to provide a most satisfying dining experience. Wonderful salads (we chose Spinach this time), fine wines (a French Rhone blend & Central Coast Pinot Noir), and outstanding specials (steak & Atlantic salmon), - all prepared exactly to our liking & nicely presented. Waiter was attentive, helpful, and friendly. Hutch's is not for someone on a tight budget, but if you do go, you will certainly get your money's worth.

I love this menu and all of the wait staff! What a great experience is had every night I spend at Hutch's. The Bison Tenderloin was the best cut of meat I have ever had, so unbelievably tender! Cant wait to come back!
