We really enjoyed our first experience at 31 Club. We went for brunch and both had the Shrimp and Grits. It was very good. The shrimp was very flavorful as was the andouille sausage. The grits were very creamy and yummy, if just a bit under salted. We were seated and a lovely, old-school, curved booth on the back side of the bar. The ambiance was very nice as was the service. Our only concern was the music was annoyingly and inappropriately loud, especially for a brunch. Although I didn’t mind the playlist, per se, but the volume was problematic. However, personally, I would have preferred jazz or classical music at a much lower volume. The volume of the rest of the restaurant (other dinners, service noises, etc.) would have been excellent had the music volume been lowered. I will return for brunch sometime and am very excited to come back for dinner in the future. More

We made reservations, got our table right away and had the most wonderful server. He was very friendly and very helpful as we perused the menu. The wine was fantastic, the Caesar salad was great and the Boeuf Borguignon was absolutely wonderful. I would go back tomorrow for more! Even though I really had no room for dessert we had to try the macarons and they were light and tasty. The perfect end to a perfect dining experience. Go there! More

First of all: Santora's DOES NOT use OpenTable anymore. I booked through here and then (luckily) called to change my reservation and they said they no longer use this service. That was frustrating. Restaurant was good. Menu has a good variety of options. Food was good bar food, and drink menu had a great variety, as well. Service was slow because it was very busy, but food still came out quickly and was warm and delicious. The waiter asked if we wanted the bill split, and then messed up the receipts, which was disappointing. Nice for a casual night out. More

We come to Chautauqua every year and were pleased to find this much-needed addition to the bar and restaurant scene. Nice bar, good crowd (especially younger people), open late after the Amp programming. We loved the fact that there was live music on the weekends. Food was pretty good. Decent wine list, too. Only two issues: (1) the Open Table listing does not note that the menu is limited after 9 PM. The limitation is no problem, but you should be more clear about this for people who are making a reservation. (2) our server was very nice but inexperienced about the little things--like opening the bottle of wine but then just setting it down instead of letting us taste it or pouring the first glasses. All in all, however, we were very happy with our experience and will be back. More

The new bar and open kitchen concept really bring Pano’s to the new century without losing what it does best-great food. The staff were attentive and quick and we were in and out for breakfast in under an hour and half and I had a 3 year old toddler in tow! Can’t say enough about the facelift on this place and love that it is still great food and an awesome vibe. Can’t wait to return to try the crab cakes Benedict! More

I've never been to Becker Farms other than for usual fall activities, but fiance saw that we could have dinner there. The patio is beautiful and was the perfect place to eat on a warm night. We both had the crab dip baked cod and it was good, nothing too "wow" about it. The sweet potato fries were very good but there was nothing to dip them in but ketchup. The hush puppies were very good. We had a cinnamon donut for dessert and it was delicious as usual. We each had their beer and hard cider, which were both very good and complimented the meal well. I'm not sure if we'll make the hour-long drive back for dinner any time soon but it was a really nice way to experience the farm as adults. More

We went to Samurai to celebrate my husband's birthday. He loves sushi. Our dinner was fabulous. He ordered three different rolls and I ordered the teriyaki chicken (I do not care for sushi). It first I was worried that I would not be able to find anything to order, but have no fear for the non-sushi people - the restaurant has plenty to offer. My husband ended up cleaning his plate and I also had nothing leftover. The food portions are a good size - not too small, but not too large either. I always feel like I am wasting food when I go out to eat because most restaurants gorge you. I would recommend Samurai and we will definitely be returning. More

American | Buffalo, Western New York

Ellicottville Brewing was established in 1995 by our beer-loving founder after a ski trip to Vail, CO. Inspiration had struck: an authentic craft brewery would be the perfect match for the village of Ellicottville, located in the heart of New York ski country, also known as “The Aspen of the East”. This pairing of Old World brewing and winter-worshipping ski culture proved to be a success ahead of the trend, with EBC helping to lead a then-fledgling craft beer market. Over the years, EBC has seen fantastic growth to both our portfolio of brews and our facility, with the original brewpub expanded into a brand new 8,000 sq. ft. restaurant, brew house and German beer garden in 2013.More
