Brought my girlfriend for a Valentine’s dinner. We didn’t want something super fancy but we also didn’t want something super casual. This was the perfect fit.
Everything was great. Noise level was too loud to have reasonable conversation.
I never regret dining at Hydraulic Hearth. Food and drinks are always top notch.
Wings and pizza very good. Nice selection of craft beer.
The pizza was extremely delicious...served quickly and hot.
We got there early and it was already very noisy - chatter noise. The food was exquisite - as were the drink options. Pricey for what we got; but we don’t go out much so it was a splurge. Would go again!
Food and service are always good. My only knock is the noise levels are high. That said, they have a great bar. Overall I recommend.
Glad we set a reservation for 6, as once we arrived the place really filled up quick. Great drinks, I enjoyed the Shandy's that are exclusive to them. The pizza's are superb, we had three in total, the Pepperoni (cup & char plus the peppers give a unique spin on a traditional), the Fried Chicken (chicken was outstanding), and the Margherita. Some great apps too, the Mozz sticks are one of a kind, as are the Spicy Asian wings. The only downside was the fondue platter, a great app, but the cheese was very thin, maybe just a bad batch.
Food/Service was good, we were disappointed with our dessert. The gelato tasted old (freezer burn)
Amazing food and amazing atmosphere ! Cauliflower app is to die for !
I have been here before and like it better the first time. I do not recommend brussel sprouts on pizza. It was a very strong flavor and rather dry. If it had balsamic vinegar drizzled over it, it would have been tastier.
Great atmosphere with great service and food. We will return!
Lots of fun! Good food! Great cocktails and friendly service
Love the pizza, but really go for the lime shandy!! All so good.
Great beer selection, fun waitress, and always delicious pizza. Excellent food with a laid back vibe!
Everything was great wanted something low key and quick before a sabres game and wasn’t disappointed
Had a great time at Hydraulic Hearth ~ Had some time to sit at the bar before the rest of our party arrived~ our bartender was great..helped me pick out the perfect beer and made a great cocktail. We had a cozy table by the front window and our server was so nice. We ordered some apps and pizzas and salads. Enjoyed everything - especially the cauliflower! Great atmosphere, especially in summer. Will be back!
Very good food & service
I thought the pizza crust left a lot to be desired. The salad was good and the beer was good.
Originally had a party of 8. Dropped down to 5 and we got seated 45 minutes early. Pizzas were good
Great spot to eat before the Sabres game! Service and food were worth the drive from the suburbs.
Excellent food, quick service before the Sabres game in a fun atmosphere. Easy parking. Wonderful service from our waitress.
We had reservations for 7:45 and we were seated early. The service was spectacular. The server paid attention to refills and made recommendations. The restaurant was busy but, our food came out timely and hot. You wouldn’t have known they were that busy unless you looked at the full bar and tables around you. Absolutely going back. Thank you for a great experience. You made our evening!
Great food and amazing service with Roxanne! We had a great time and will be back soon!
Everything was lovely. The sausage pizza was especially good. Great cocktails too.
The pizza is great here. I met a few customers of mine here and we got a few pizzas to share and it was more than enough for us. Good beer here as well!
1st experience and will definitely go be back. Server Kate was quite personable and made all options known to us.
Have been here close to a dozen times and have never been disappointed. Our waitress was a gem!
My husband and I love hydraulic hearth! We go there often with friends and family!
Friends were in town for Thanksgiving and we met there. My friend had a very long hair in her salad in her first couple bites ... which is embarrassing when you talk up a place and they were first time guests. We told the waitress and she was apologetic and offered to bring a new one but my friend said just to take it off the bill which she did. I wish the manager would have come over and acknowledged it or offered her a free drink. We still had a great time but I’m not sure they will want to go back their next visit to Buffalo.
Went there on a date. It was nice, parking was super convenient, service was great. I got some kind of artichoke pizza cause I felt adventurous with my dinner that night and my date got regular pepperoni. Mine was good but I really liked her pepperoni. I remember it came with onions on it too. Had a unexpected spiciness that we both liked. I tried a weird beer that tasted like bbq smells. Interesting, but I wouldn’t do more than one of those. Meal price wasn’t super cheap but wasn’t super expensive. I’d definitely go back.
Food was good but not very hot. Service was excellent!!
Amazing vegan pizza and cocktails! I love the atmosphere inside and the servers are always so nice
The cocktails are fantastic. Thr toys were a yummy starter. I got the carbonara pizza and it was delicious. Maybe some specials outside of the menu would be good. The menu seems to have some similar ingredients on many of the pizza, might be fun to offer something outside of the box or a build your own option.
Yummy brick oven pizza choices! Excellent service! Great drinks!
The pizzas are amazing! We had a large group so sampled a bunch. Our favorite was the fried chicken!
One complaint- the apps weren't that great. We got the cheese fondue and it was watery and the tots, which weren't anything special
The food was great and ambience was perfect. I would recommend reservations. One suggestion would be for the waitress to describe what kind of sausage , meat , cheeses etc are actually on the sharing boards when they arrive to the table. They were beautiful but we had no idea what was what.
One of my favorite places! Best Cosmos and awesome food!
We had a group of 7 of us and our waitress was fantastic staying on top of all of our food and drink orders. We had almost one of every app and 4 different pizzas, and everything a was delicious!
Perfect experience and great place to go for a date or place to hangout and have some fabulous finger foods and pizzas!
