    My husband and I really enjoyed the atmosphere, the service and the food. The lobster and shrimp bisque is to die for. The oysters were over the top. Escargot, salad and steak tartare are solid. The service is wonderful- starting in the parking lot with a warm welcome!

    I consider myself a bit of a foodie. I love to cook, work in the catering business and love restaurants. I am not a big red meat eater but ordered the strip steak. Seriously, one of the best steaks I ever had. The entire plate was spot on. I was wowed.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/5/2014
    We chose Hutch's to celebrate our anniversary, it was our first visit and we've been waiting a long time to finally experience this restaurant. At best it was disappointing. Although the food was nicely prepared and presented, it did not warrant the exorbitant cost. The ambiance was noisy, the service only adequate and the overall vibe was pretentious and over-bearing. It seems that this is a place to be seen and I felt as if a scam were being perpetrated. We dine out frequently all over the northeast, and based on our experience there are several fine restaurants in WNY that we will return to before re-visiting this establishment. The experience did not live up to the hype or expectation.

    We went to Hutch's for a birthday dinner. We drove for 40 minutes to reach the restaurant and passed several notable restaurants along the way, Russell's and Black and Blue to name a couple. Parking was sketchy, we parked our BMW beside a Mercedes in a closed gas station nearby, an Aston Martin was parked on the street. Needless to say, Hutch's attracts the affluent diners in the area. The food was very good but not better that other fine dining establishments in the area. The prices were competitive, I thought the steaks were priced a bit too high given there are other "steak houses" with a better reputation for steak. I had the tuna steak. I wouldn't say I won't go back but I prefer the suburban dining experience.

    This upscale neighbourhood restaurant is a perfect spot for dinner - varied menu, fresh daily specials, excellent service. A drink at the bar before dinner is to experience friendly Buffalo hospitality. Hutch's is unpretentious and welcoming, with well-prepared food and great ambience.

    We had another wonderful meal at Hutch's. The wine selections were good, and for the food, there was something for everyone. Lots of small plates and appetizers that could be combined into a meal and large plates that were delicious. The steak tartar, made with locally raised beef, was excellent, as was the ceviche. A special of wild salmon with Chinese mustard sauce and yellowfin tuna with a sesame crust( large plates) were both excellent. The burrata salad with heirloom tomatoes was very good. Service slipped a little at times, but they made up for the small lapses with a complimentary glass of wine.

    My husband and I went to hutches for the first time this past week to celebrate our anniversary. Our server, Anthony, was wonderful. We were greeted at the table with complimentary glasses of champagne! The lobster bisque was so delicious as was the calamari. My husband ordered soft shell crab and I had a filet; both were extremely good and large portions for the price. We ordered the chocolate cheesecake for dessert- wow! Overall, wonderful experience! We can't wait to go back!!

    We do not get to Hutch's often since we had kids but were wonderfully reminded of how much we loved the creative and delicious recipes there when we went for our anniversary. We found the regular menu a bit narrow, but the specials full of so many choices we ordered too much! Our waiter was also a great match for the quick wit of my husband, yet also a beautiful match for the menu and ambience. There is nothing worse (for me) then going out for a wonderful dining experience that is perforated by a sub-standard server. Now that our children are at the age where they don't mind if we go out, we hope to go to Hutch's regularly again. One of the very finest in Buffalo - excepting for the cramped tables and loud noise.

  • Anniversary Dinner

    Dined on 8/2/2014
    All food is of high quality. Started with Shrimp and Lobster Bisque and the Tomato Tarte Tatin, both very satisfying. I enjoyed the Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna, perfectly seared rare as ordered and my wife was very happy with the halibut. Almond Lace Cookie Cup and Cherry Berry Cobbler for dessert for a perfect ending. That being said, the highlight of my evening was one of the specialty cocktails. If you are searching for the perfect Manhattan, look no further-the 5 Sipper Manhattan is it, the best I've ever had. Only (small) negative is the dining space. Tables a little too close together for my taste and the more exuberant patrons seem even more so in the tight quarters. Not much of a deterrent though as everything else was perfect.

    We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary at Hutch's. We had not been there before but had heard nothing but good things. They were all true. The atmosphere was quaint and it was relatively quiet (Sunday early evening) at our corner table to the front. The filet and lobster were cooked and seasoned to perfection! Our waiter was very personable, very knowledgeable about the menu and helped make it a very enjoyable event for us. His wine recommendation was perfect. It was a wonderful evening that will be remembered for a long time.

    We wanted to experience a good meal, but have the option to get small plates as well as entrées and the hotel strongly recommended this restaurant that has been around Buffalo for a long time. The place was crowded upon arrival and although we had reservations, we had to wait 15 minutes for our table. The bar was comfortable and had a good crowd of it's own. At our table the walls were covered in art and the noise level was comfortable. I had the soft shell crab that was outstanding and my date had several small plates, that were also very good. We skipped dessert, but they had a great selection. We had cappuccinos that were good. The staff were friendly and I would definitely come back to this restaurant.

    To be honest, Hutch's wasn't my first choice, but it will be in the future. There was not a single misstep the entire night. From being greeted at the door, to saying good night, every member of the staff was professional but warm as well. Both meals were expertly prepared and served without a prolonged wait. But at the same time, I enjoy taking my time when I am at a fine restaurant, that is the nature of dining, not simply having dinner. I don't like paying for a fine meal and feel pressured to finish so the table can be turned. We never felt rushed for a second. Our waiter Rick was outstanding and his recommendations were spot on. It was a special occasion made more so by our experience at Hutch's. Thanks to the entire staff.

    I am in the Buffalo area frequently and have dined at most of the restaurants around town. This was my first try with Hutch's, and won't be my last. Seating is a bit crowded but the menu makes up in the variety of dishes they offer. I ordered the bison medium rare and it was perfect, tasty and cooked to perfection. It isn't cheap at $51.00 plus the salad being ala-carte but it was worth trying, I was not disappointed.

    We were met at the door and quickly lead to a table. Service was very good, not rushed nor slow but nicely paced. Our drink orders arrived quickly. The beet salad was great, a nice blend of flavors and textures. My Soft Shell Crab was the best I have ever had. Crisp and moist with a wonderful fresh salty flavor from the ocean. Our Server was very knowledgeble about all the menu selections their preperation methods and ingredients. I only wish I had room for the great dessert selection. This is one Restauant I would not mind coming often. Your online reservation system a very easy to use.

    I am someone who has travelled a lot and has had many great meals. I think they have amazing steak here and great desserts. But the service was pretty terrible, our waitress actually thought my date said no he didn't want a drink when he said "a coke". Then when we asked for refills it would take her at least ten minutes. Overall her service was not good. But as I said the food was definitely the best I've had in buffalo.

    Never, ever, in the twenty years that Hutch's has been open, have I had a bad meal. No exception here. For a place that does not bill itself as a steakhouse, the steaks were succulent and done as ordered and to perfection. My bison strip steak was a pleasant surprise with rich flavor offset by the pepper encrusting. My wife's ribeye was also wonderful as the kitchen was willing to substitute a different glazing than that offered on the menu. My choice was difficult because the menu also included the yellowfin tuna special(done rare) that has become almost legendary. The wait staff is attentive without being overbearing, and is one of the most knowledgeable about all the offerings. While not inexpensive, Hutch's provides a memorable meal.
