    Honestly I always double check my resources because OpenTable has a bunch of 5 star reviews, and let me tell you, this 5 star review is legit! Never judge a book by its cover, the outside walls of this place would never let you know of the amazing ambiance inside…I absolutely loved the vibe here and the staff are friendly, attentive, and make you feel welcome! Many thanks again

    Buffalo Club has re-opened during the week, and it is heavenly to sit in their beautiful patio under the stars. The most delightful evening out we've had in, well, more than two years. The staff is as gracious as ever.

    We were a party of four and we were all delighted by the ambiance, the service and the excellent food and and cocktails. Our bottle of wine was superb. We had not been to Buffalo Club for awhile and we all agreed we will be happy to return soon. The host is excellent and experienced. We had some interesting conversations with him. A perfect evening!

    Food: delicious. However, the entrée portions are not all equal. The Impossible Moussaka was insubstantial and would more accurately have been listed as an appetizer. Ambience: flowering, vined courtyard lit by sunlight and string lights at sunset. Great place to take your parents, have a romantic date, or celebrate a special occasion. Service: Goldilocks. Not too much attention, not too little.

    We went for our anniversary dinner and had a lovely time. We sat inside instead of the outdoor patio because we prefer the old school ambiance and couldn’t have been happier as it was quiet and conducive for having a conversation. The food was excellent - I fell hard for the cauliflower. My husband is a particularly hard critic of beef as his father was in the business and he was very impressed with his steak. It was cooked perfectly. Of note was the service - our waitperson was William, I believe, who is actually the sommelier, and we were in great hands.

    Went to this restaurant expecting great things but was severely disappointed. Appetizers were mediocre at best and the Beef bourgeon was dried out and tough for meat that had been marinated for 48 hours. Save your money and time and go elsewhere for a good meal.

    It pains me to give this review. I so wanted to love this place based on the menu and the reviews. I loved the ambiance and the quirkiness of it. It has a nice vibe, though it was mostly empty. It was though Overall disappointed, blossoms were lacking on taste, oyster were good, steak was ok. At the end of the day for $380 for one cocktail, three appetisers, three mains and one desert, it better be excellent. It wasn’t. I have to question what these other reviews were thinking. It hope they make adjustments.

    We really enjoyed our evening - lovely ambience, and the food was great. We were disappointed at the unavailability of the soft shell crabs, since two of the 4 of us had planned to order them. As a result, the menu seemed quite limited, but everything was excellent.
