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.

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...

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!

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

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.

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?

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.

A touch of Back East with dark wood and classic photos and paintings adorning the walls. Personal attention by Patrick Healy, the Chef, who came out and greeted us at the Table. Fabulous presentation of food and the best playlist of songs we have heard in a long time.
