  • Dinner for the four of us
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 7/1/2009
    Dinner for the four of us was the usual cascade of wonderful things to eat. From the appetizers through the entrees to the dessert, there's never anything mediocre about any of it, including the service. Every single dish is always a radiant success- well presented, extraordinarily tasty, with proper textures and seasoning, the freshest ingredients. One wonders how that's done- how come there's never anything that we have ever ordered that warrants a lukewarm comment? We've been all over their menu and never found anything on it to dampen our maxed-out enthusiasm for the place. The kitchen and wait staff, the quality of the food and the menu are the best in town, period. Hutch's means a lot to us. Go on a week night to avoid the mob.

    The food at Hutch's was exceptional!! From the appetizers to the dessert, it was evident somebody in the kitchen had great knowledge and skill in preparing outstanding dishes! The inside dining room was very noisy, almost to the point of detracting from the incredible food. We were very glad to be able to sit on the patio and enjoy the food as well as the atmosphere.

    Tremendous experience all around. Host Kevin, Server Mike and the entire staff did a superlative job meeting and anticipating our every need. The food was as cutting edge and tasty as Hutch's consistently provides. From the wine selections, Thai High Tower and Stuffed Poblano to the Creme Brulee and Mango Sorbet our eyes and taste buds were met with exciting fine food.

    Wonderful food .... service was quick - almost too quick ... we suspect it was due to wanting to turn tables over .... seating was last minute and got table next to bar/kitchen/serving area ... not the best and cramped with three other tables ... seating in the front of restaurant looked much more cozy and would have justified the very pricey (but good) meal.

    Probably the best restaurant in Western New York. The food is superior quality, made with fresh ingredients. The staff is always knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. We once asked for an item that was on a specials menu on a previous visit (the mussels stew), and although they didn't have it on the current menu, the kitchen put it together for us.

  • What is an obvious neighborhood
    BernbyVIP
    Dined on 5/17/2009
    What is an obvious neighborhood favorite is something everyone should try when visiting Buffalo. Welcome and attentive service. Good ambiance. Variety of seasonal offerings on the menu and some fantastic dishes on the features board. Would make this a regular stop whenever we are back in Buffalo. Whatever you do, make sure you get a helping of the scallop potatoes. Heavenly, heart-stoppingly buttery, cheesy, just crisp enough and ooooh so bad for you that you would risk the scale-shock to enjoy this on a weekly basis.

    I had no doubt that the food would be excellent there. It was a little pricey but the portions were good. I wouldn't recommend it for a romantic night out because of the noise level in the restaurant. The front rooms are a little quieter but still too loud.

    I dined at Hutch's on Mother's Day. I was very pleased with the entire experience. From the moment we were seated, the wait staff was attentive and courteous. The food was fabulous and the portions were more than enough. I had the Chicken Malinese, others in my party had the prawns with linguine (Large Plate), the salmon with polenta, and the half-rack of ribs. I especially loved dessert (I had the pistachio cake), it was delicious! I would definitely go back to try other menu items. This is one of the best place to dine in Buffalo.

    As a student of the business thanks to Paul Smith's College, and Florida International University, Hutch's provides the best T.D.E. in Buffalo. I wish I could eat there all the time.This was my third time dining at the restaurant. I give the service a respectable rating of 90% out of 100. The server did a great job with reciting the specials,but couldn't pronouce them accurately...Aioli. - and woman should always be first no matter what. As I said, she was wonderful and very attentive. The food was cooked and presented to perfection...no issues. The host/manager was also in the groove, he knew everythiing that was going on. Awesome! - Thanks for everything.

    My wife and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary by having dinner for two at Hutch's. When I made the reservations, I had told them it was our anniversary and that I was having flowers delivered to the restaurant. The staff handled everything and were very attentive to us. They also gave us glasses of complimentary champagne. As usual, the food was excellent. We have never been disappointed with the service or food at Hutch's. It was slightly louder than I would have preferred for the occasion, but the food and service more than make up for it.

    I had reserved a table for 8 weeks in advance. The mangager, Kevin, could not have given me finer personal service, adjusting times and numbers of diners as the day got closer. We were greated in a most friendly manner, had a drink in the extremely welcoming bar, and were seated promptly. We had excellent, courteous service from all the wait staff. The restaurant itself was both classic and elegant, and had the look of a place that had been special to the residents of Buffalo for a long time. My whole party enjoyed their meal. The only drawback was that the members of my party who ordered meat dishes did not feel their desired level of doneness was correct. Veal chops were well done instead of med. rare,steak rare instead of medium.

    Hutch's has always been one of our favorite restaurants but I was a bit dissapointed with this last trip. The food was just ok and considering the prices they charge, I think it should be excellent. Our server never came to see how the food was and never asked if we wanted another glass of wine (mine was empty throughout the whole meal). I'm not sure if I would go back again which is really too bad.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/19/2009
    My husband and I love this restaurant! The mussel stew, fresh, tender mussels with tomatoes, corn, and andouille sausage, is our favorite starter. It's large enough for two or more to share or for one person's light entree. We both ordered the halibut as our entree. It was cooked to perfection in a lovely butter sauce with vegetable and potatoe sides. The pistachio cake and cookie cup with fruit were happy endings to a great dinner: subtly sweet. The waitstaff was attentive but not hovering. When one of us dropped a napkin, a new one seemed to magically appear on the table, before we could even register that the napkin had been lost. When we want to take guests out to Buffalo's best restaurant, we always take them to Hutch's.

    Food was fabulous. I had scallops and my husband had a strip steak, both were excellent. I also started with a fabulous spinach salad. Menu is small, but their specials list is almost as long as the regular menu. Dessert was fabulous as well. We had chocolate cake and a fruit cup dessert. The waiter forgot our appetizers (which we didn't end up missing anyways), but besides that, service was great as well. Everyone told us this was an outstanding restaurant, and they were right. We will be back for sure!
