Templeton Landing reviews from OpenTable diners

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 6/6/2012
    When we arrived, the restaurant did not have any record of our Open Table reservation and they really did not even know what Open Table was, which was a bit distracting, but they seated us anyway and everything went uphill from there!

    Brunch buffet was well-prepared and extensive, although nothing surprising in the line-up. The service was terrible--long wait on drinks and on new utensils after plates were cleared. They really need to streamline the service.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/12/2012
    Ambiance of restaurant is excellent, right on the harbor with stunning views. Menu is somewhat limited, expected to see more seafood entrees than offered. We made reservation for 8 and were asked to wait until the party at our table left. Meanwhile the rest of the restaurant was half empty, not very organized. We gave the waitress a $100 bill and credit card to pay the bill. The entire bill was put on the credit card and the $100 bill disappeared. After conversation with waitress we straighted out. Not the best restaurant experience that we have had.

    We were originally seated by the windows, which provided a lovely view of the marina, but unfortunately had to move because one of the blinds was broken and the setting sun was shining in the eyes of one of our guests. Overall, though, we had a lovely time. The food was very good and the staff was friendly and attentive. The quiet, comfortable atmosphere provided us the freedom to talk, laugh, and thoroughly enjoy ourselves. I would definitely go back again.

    Our Easter Brunch was very enjoyable. Impressed that the hostess went to get my father a waffle, since we were seated in the room that had everything but waffles and he has trouble walking. Plan on going back when weather gets warmer to eat on the waterfront deck.

    Has a beautiful view of the harbor inlet off the river in Buffalo. They have a variety of food on the menu as well as specials for the day at very reasonable prices. Excellent presentation of the entrees. Absolutely great tasting meals. We arrived late, yet the folks were very accomodating. Would go back again if in the area & would recommend to anyone visiting Buffalo NY or Niagra Falls.

    The intricate sconces in the dining room and the glow of the individual fire pits on the patio gave us an above breath taking reaction. As a party of 3, we dined on the Shrimp Scampi Ravioli(5 star!), Seafood bisque, NY Strip, Milanese Osso Buco, Winter martini selections, and the signature upside down caramel apple pie with cinnamon ice cream. From the start of the courteous server with the warm French Bread to the end of the night, the restaurant I have spent every anniversary at was soon crossed of the list and replaced with this new pedestal of perfection. Templeton has actually ruined me from wanting to dine at any other restaurant in Western NY. Hands down there is no comparison. Our meals and martinis, were that fantastic. 5 star

    We went to celebrate an employees 10 year anniversary at our company. We chose Tempelton Landing because of the location and senic view. However, we were extremly disappointed. We waited 10 minutes before someone even nocited we were at the front desk to seat us and we had reservations for 12pm. Two of the three dishes that were served were not good. Stay away form the steak in the grass it was so tough it could not be eaten and the vegtable wellington was underwhelming to say the least. The ruben came with a thumbs up though and the server was pleasant and attentive. However, unless they get their food up to par we will not be going back.

    It happened to be a perfect evening weather wise, therefore we enjoyed it very much. It would be very good if the potatoes and salad were included in the entree (instead of a separate price,) even if the prices were raised a bit. Our server was excellent and friendly. We loved the location and also the firepit. We would definately return and recommenc this restaurant.

    food was good except the harvest vegetables they served with all the dishes was strong in taste. I believe it was rutabaga, carrots and onions. The mashed potatoes were almost too of a creamy taste which masked the potatoe flavor. Waiter was very accomadating and service was good. The atmosphere was very nice.
