    Very clean, the bar drinks were well made, not the typical nightclub stuff, a true bartender, who puts some work into it, the food was good, id recomend the portibello fries and glazed bacon to start, the main dish, both steaks were well cooked to are liking, service was good also, a bit noisy but i think thats to be expected for a Sat night, still able to carry on a conversation, yes id go back.

    Great food. Our table had 3 appetizers: steak tartare, stuffed poblano, & calamari. Our entrees included 2 8 oz. lamb chops, tuna steak, snapper and Asia style salmon. We all enjoyed our meals and the lamb and tuna were cooked to perfection. We had a great corner table, away from the bar area, which made for easy conversation. Our 6:00 reservation was the first seating and we were not at all hurried on a Summer Friday night. Well worth the somewhat higher prices.

    The food at Hutch's is always good- we have dined there many times. Fresh and seasonal ingredients are featured- the soft shell crab appetizer and entree were fantastic. The regular menu is varied and creative and the specials are innovative and delicious. Desserts are so wonderful- the cookie cup with fresh fruit, caramel and whipped cream is incredible. Service is very professional and friendly without being intrusive. Hutch's is expensive, but worth every penny.

    The food was top quality and the service was just fantastic. Prices were not bad either. They have both high prices items and items that are reasonably priced. Dinner for two could be $60-80 or $200. The bison steak was the best steak I have ever had. I love steak so that is saying a lot

    We came for our 25th anniversary dinner. The entire experience was outstanding. Our food was incredible and cooked to perfection. I cannot say enough about our waiter Josh. He was very attentive and could recite every ingredient on the specials menu. Even Paige who was refilling our water (and had only worked here for 1 week) did an excellent job. Thank you for making our anniversay dinner one to remember!

    The food was fabulous, as was the service. For the first time, in I don't know how long, my husband order a steak well done, and it came out well done and perfect and delicious and not batter, butterflied or burnt. My son ordered a steak med-rare and that too was perfect. I had the veal and it was mouthwatering. My daughter had the soft shelled crab and loved it. Oysters were fresh and the salmon appetizer was terrific. We had drinks and wine and a wonderful apple pear crisp that we shared and loved! Will definitely be dining there again.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Hutch's restaurant last week. The service was very good - they anticipated our needs but did not hover. Food was great. Two of us had steak - tender and juicy. I had the skatewing - a really excellent dish. Don't be afraid to order it! If you like scallops, you will love skatewing. Also don't miss the beet salad. Only downside is that parking can be a challenge, but once you find a place to park, the rest is nearly perfect.

  • overcrowding, noisy
    Disappointing
    Dined on 5/10/2014
    Unfortunately the noise level and overcrowding--tables way too close for comfort--made our dining experience far less than satisfactory. We were unable to converse without yelling. I do remember when the ambiance was delightful, and our waiter could give attention to all details; he was rushing around trying to fit everything in, and delayed by the tables so close. I don't know why you need such crowding unless it is a money issue for your survival; or maybe you prefer it to be geared to mostly young adults. Your food is exceptional, but I cannot recommend your venue to our friends based on above comments. Sorry, as we were expecting a delightful evening.

    Reservations at 8pm sat down 915. They accidentally had given our table to another party, luckily I went out and checked. The staff was very accommodating. Every person that came to our table knew we had been waiting and were outstanding, they included a round of drinks for our wait and the manager came by to personally apologize. This definitely compensated for our wait. The wait staff were extremely helpful with recommending the best items. The food was exceptional as well, however I only gave it four stars as I was looking for something a little more. With the prices I expected to see a more appealing presentation than we received. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, it is more of a special occasion restaurant than every night.

    My wife and I had dinner at Hutch's this Tuesday and were extremely impressed by every facet of the experience. Extraordinary food, flawlessly served by friendly and throughly professional waitstaff. From an arugula salad, a tuna entree special, jambalaya and everything in between - all dishes had a delightful complexity. Ambiance is just perfect. Western New York does have some outstanding restaurants, but Hutch's may be the best.

    We had a nice time having a drink at the bar before dinner, it had a nice crowd, very friendly bartenders, the Kentucky derby was on the TV and my husband enjoyed the mint juleps. Dinner was exceptional. The arugula salad was huge and excellent. My husband had the basil and mozzarella salad, also excellent. The prawns the people at the table next to us smelled so amazing we had to have them :) They were absolutely delicious served over linguini in garlic sauce with grated parmesan. We both took half of it home the portion was such a nice size. Drinks were great, nice wine choices. Our server was very friendly, service was great! We have been here frequently but this was definitely one of the best meals we have had here. We will be back!

    We are very picky when it comes to eating out due to the fact that we are gourmet cooks ourselves. This restaurant was the best we have been to in a very long time. The veal porterhouse was to die for(had it cooked medium). Would go back again for sure! (We live 1-1/2 hours a way)

    Hutch's has a great menu with somewhat traditional steak and other meat dishes, but also has innovative small and large plates, such as an excellent tuna tartar, a riff on jambalaya that was very tasty and a succulent halibut with a mushroom sauce, with scallops and shrimp. Nice wine list, with enough moderately priced wines to make it affordable. Super-excellent professional service. Dinner for two with tip was $115, so it's an expensive night out.

    The staff was appropriately attentive - not hovering but always taking care of details. I had the shrimp and lobster bisque. It was creamy without being heavy, with bits of lobster on top. I also had the Maryland oysters. Having lived in Maryland, I can happily say Hutch's did the oysters proud. My mom loved her Ceasar salad. She also had the strip steak, with mashed potatoes, grilled vegetables, topped with lovely onion rings. She loved every bite. Dessert topped off a wonderful meal. I had a beautifully made lace cookie filled with whipped cream and seasonal fruit sitting on caramel sauce. My mom had cheesecake in a carrot cake crust. I don't normally like cheesecake but this was not overly sweet - perfect.
