Everyone there worked hard, were really nice and accommodating.
Staff was very confrontational and unfriendly. Definitely not the same fun vibe as pre-corona times. Wouldn't recommend going.
House cocktails were great..tuna tartare was a bit bland, soft shell crab app was amazing. Loved my red snapper main course. Great patio espcially during COVID restrictions.
My girlfriend and I celebrated with an outdoor Valentine's Day dinner. The safety precautions were well thought-out, and the service was great. Barbie was our waitress, and she was very knowledgeable about the items on the menu. Overall, it was a great time.
My Fiancée and I came here for Valentine’s Day I booked our reservation about 2 weeks before not really knowing what the expect. We ordered off their Valentine’s Day menus and I’m gluten free and they went out of their way to accommodate my allergy. The food was exceptional. We enjoyed our dinner every course. The wait staff didn’t hover but was there when you wanted them. We don’t eat at these restaurants all that often but it was exceptional service and food. I highly recommend!
Very poor service. Tried to kick us out as she said reservations were coming in yet there was no one waiting and so many open tables around us. Food was overpriced and mediocre. The place was cute but very dull/boring vibe. Wouldn’t go back
We have been coming to the BC since it opened and we are SO happy it is still here !!!
warm and cozy, beautiful outdoor garden. Perfect setting for a enjoying a wonderful meal.
Lovely outdoor courtyard space. Good service and wonderful food, as always.
We enjoyed our experience and would go back again.
Food was mediocre for the price. But the covered patio was warm and allows to eat outside even in colder weather
The Buffalo Club appears to be Back in the good form that it once enjoyed. We had a very good meal with very good service on their lovely outdoor patio. The duck pate was a little to rich for our tastes, but everything else was great. We'll be back.
This place is beautiful. It’s
Top Notch Service. Food was Amazing. We came back a second time the next night!
Though the outdoor area is festive and lively, we were put in a sad back area. The food was took a long time to get to our table and it was all pretty bland and underwhelming. We wanted to like it...
This was our hangout for years after it opened! Still an awesome spot for an excellent dinner and cocktails with friends. Patrick Healy...chef extraordinaire!
A lovely setting, kind service and great food! What more could you ask for!
Wonderful experience. I was dining alone, and noted in the reservation that I was "flying in solo" which the host remembered upon my arrival and had reserved a quiet table in the back away from the crowd. It was great atmosphere, lovely wait staff, outstanding food & wine, and everyone was wonderfully polite and professional. Absolutely will return to my new local spot. Thanks Buffalo Club!
Food was delicious!! Excellent find we will definitely be back!!
The price of the food for what you get is terrible. I ordered the sea bass and received a 3 oz piece of sea bass with 4 small artichoke hearts for the full entree for dinner. I was left feeling so hungry that we ended up ordering more food on the way home. I understand food cost is tough during the pandemic and I applaud them for a great ambiance and great service, but the food was pathetically portioned. I would be embarrassed to suggest this place to friends and family as a good spot for an outdoor dinner
Absolutely lovely! The food is delicious. Make sure to get a $15 glass of French wine.
Lovely evening, great food. Will definitely be back, and will refer to all my friends.
This place is magical! Especially now with all the outdoor dining. The outdoor terrace is large, beautiful, peaceful and comfortable. Food was fantastic. Drinks were super fun and they had a great variety. Felt like a vacation and can't wait to go again!
Loved every minute of it. The service was on top of us without being overbearing. The music was perfect for the time of day and crowd. And the steaks were amazing quality.
Lovely Evening! Great Experience. Terrific Food and Service. Boeuf Bourguignon
was sublime. Enjoyable outdoor patio seating and charming "garden" area. Highly Recommend
We went there for a Birthday and I had not been for over 5 years when I knew everyone by name, so I was not sure what to expect. Our waiter was very nice and attentive but everyone seemed on the edge. Also, we felt a bit rushed as the restaurant it seemed it was slowly turning into a nightclub for a super young crowd.
All in all it was good and the desserts were compliment of the restaurant. I would recommend going early to avoid the club crowd unless you are into that.
As always, dinenr and drinks at the Buffalo Club as an enjoyable experience. Once of the best spots in Santa Monica.
In these Covid times, the patio at Buffalo Cub is the perfect respite. The tables are appropriately spaced, the staff adhering to safety protocol and the food, as always, delicious.
Great space! Love the patio and the tables are very spread out - the food was good - not great - good and portion sizes are minuscule -
Great enclosed patio dining with really intriguing appetizers and entrees accompanied by sublime cocktails- we were reminded of (pre-pandemic) civilized dining. An absolute oasis and a gem of a restaurant!
Amazing! Wow, we were treated like royalty, the staff were so caring, professional, food was delicious, everything perfect!!
Good, spacious, outdoor patio with protocols in place. Food is still excellent.
So glad they're back!! The Buffalo Club is our go-to place for a special occasion or just a great meal any time. The reconfigured outdoor space is fabulous and could make us not miss the awesome club-like feeling of their speak-easy indoor dining room.
One of the best original restaurants in Santa Monica. As a local is always nice to plan a night out in town where you can enjoy and amazing meal with a good glass of wine.
Love love love the Buffalo Club. Has ambience, class, and the staff respect the guests and the dining experience. Not rushed or bullied- can be unhurried and relaxing while being pampered and fed. Ok it’s traditional somewhat Eighties retro in a clubby vibe but nothing is clanging and your ears aren’t straining to hear you table mates and you feel like you belong. They make me menu entree and keep everyone’s favorites even have tables entree service. So it’s a bit quieter for ab Friday night but isn’t that the point?
Great experience beginning to end. People couldn’t have been more cordial and welcoming! Food was very good! Hadn’t been there in a number of years but will be back soon!
Loved the warm and inviting ambiance!
Main complaint is that our server did not check in with us during the meal. He took the order and the food was brought out in a reasonable amount of time. We ate slowly and were surprised that no one came by to ask if we needed anything or if the food was okay. The sea bass was very good. The cassoulet was okay. The dessert was only fair. It was a little noisy despite there being only 5 tables eating.
We went for our date night and it was a lovely evening. A little quiet but I have been here when it was more full. Love the decor and the staff was amazing. Drinks are always great as well.
It was a wonderful experience!
The Host was great as was our waiter.
The oxtail dumplings could have been our meal,
They were delicious!
Our main course , there were three of us,
Was porterhouse steak for 2 and the beef bourginon
Was a perfect night for a intimate Birthday Dinner extremely delicious!
Differently will go back
