(716) Food and Sport
Nice restaurant to visit before or after a sports event. Service was on the slow side but food was good. Reservations Recommended
Party of 2
Sat in strange very long table in the bar
A person at either end
Asked to move
Was moved upstairs to the players lounge completely on our own
Food wasn’t anything to write home about
Our server Matt was very good...very attentive...answered all our questions...and without a doubt, he was professional and very friendly. Please pass our sincere thanks along to him.
Second visit....My husband and I visited 716 prior to going to the Sabres game again. We had reservations so when we arrived we checked in and were seated immediately. We had a nice big table versus being smooshed in one of the tables for 2 like we were the last time. This was really nice. Our server was friendly and efficient. She let us sample a few beers and made a few suggestions. When our drinks arrived we placed our order. We had a single order of the Beef on Weck Chicken Wings and the combo platter. It all arrived at the same time. Everything was tasty with the exception of the fried mozzarella sticks, they were hard. Other than that, we did enjoy the rest. We will definitely be back and maybe next time it will be on a non game night to see how the atmosphere is when there is no Sabres or Bills Game.
Always a fun atmosphere! Love the grilled weck wings!
Menu was scaled down appetizers, burgers and wings. Waited 25 minutes for pretzels appetizer to come out, and burger came out less than a minute later. Waiter took over 10 minutes to check on us, at which time we told him that my wife never got her side salad. Waiter cane back to the table 3 times before her salad arrived, and it was already after we finished the main meal. I would have expected him to comp the salad and take it off the bill, but her didn’t, so it was taken out of his tip (what little he received).
As far as our reservation goes, we were seated right away! As far as service, our waitress was great!
As far as food, I was disappointed to find out they change the menu every 8 months for whatever reason and our chicken was undercooked!! I wanted to go there bc if something I had in the menu back in March ....like why fix what wasn’t broken? Should have left the menu alone!
The waitress was very friendly and welcoming. We were given a free ice cream as it was the birthday of one of the people in attendance. The atmosphere was cool with all of the screens playing different sports but fairly loud.
This was my first time in your restaurant, I enjoyed everything very much! This was also a hockey night, so food was served quick. cooked perfect! No, issues with our food or drinks. Waiter was nice and very quick and checked on us frequently.
I will be returning on a day when its not a hockey night as well. Thank you for the amazing service, great food!!
We have eaten at 716 many times and the food has always been good except this last time. We ordered the double play burger as we have done so many times but this time we received no onions on it and the cook coated the outside of the bun with the aioli sauce which made it too greasy. It really ruined the burger.
Since I was by myself I got placed by the back door and had to ask twice for napkins and silverware. Also wasn't asked if I would like a glass for my beer. But food was great and came quickly. I would go back but be more vocal on requesting items
I think the food has improved at 716 since it opened, although people in my party still lament the loss of flat bread pizza from the menu. My only disappointment with the service was the lack of knowledge regarding the Sabres season ticket holder discount. I was glad we asked for the bill early and still made it to our seats for the National Anthem.
We were disappointed with our experience. We had reservations and were seated promptly however our food order was messed us- wrong food, not what we ordered. The server was very pleasant and tried to her best but it took a really long time for us to get the correct meals. Food runner was messy and covered in food stains when delivering our food. I know it was before a Sabres game but our reservation was at 4:45 pm, it was still early. Felt like they just wanted us to move on so that they could have the table. No one offered to take anything off our bill, buy a drink etc.
Some of the food came out cold. The prices are high, $4.99 for a small side of fries..
Have been to the 716 numerous times. We were there prior to the hockey game. We were seated at 5:05pm. We ordered appetizers and our mains. No food arrived until 5:50 at which time everything came at once. I saw people getting their meals before us, but arrived after us. Not sure if I will go back
food menu not great choices, expensive, probably not going back
We were in town for a concert and wanted everything in walking distance. The food was amazing!
Went to watch Buffalo Bills game before a hockey game with friends and teammates.
Great place to watch a game! Servers were friendly, food was good, atmosphere was fantastic.
Terrible experience if you’re not a bills fan. We drove 4.5 hours for a concert and wanted To watch football before the show... they changed my game several different times even when we were some of the FIRST people in the bar. Steelers fans that showed up over an hour later had priority over my game. Bills fans kept glaring over at our table because we had our game on ONE tv when their game was on every other tv. You’re treated like a second class citizen if you’re not a part of “bills mafia.”
The wait staff needs to be trained on customer service and how to wait on tables, maybe understaffed. Former restaurant manager here. Waited hour for refill, food came out cold and wrong. Didn’t complain because was starving and didn’t see server for hour after food was dropped off. Had to track manager down to get check in order to pay. Waited 35 mins for debit card to be returned. This service was by far the worst for anywhere, it was just me and my wife and restaurant was not even busy.
Your roast beef sandwich was delicious. Your potato chips were to spicy for me. You also ran out of your signature pickles
It was a great atmosphere and the food was amazing!
Great seats overlooking bar and great view of large tv screen. Only negative is they kept changing the game and view on the screen....very annoying!!!
Food was great especially the cooking dessert
Reserved a table for 9:30, after the concert. The concert finished almost a hour later and they still had my table waiting even though they were mobbed with concert goers!
Busy night due to a concert! Had reservations but waited at least 30 minutes for a table. Once seated, two different servers asked if we just sat down or were seated by the hostess, making it very awkward. Food was excellent!
Great food and service! But the music was way to loud and that would be there reason we may not go back.
The only thing I would recommend is to add a little to the menu. Choices were very limited, even the burgers, and only 1 burger came with fries.
Their website stayed Happy Hour Monday through Friday, 4-7. There was no mention that there is no Happy Hour if an event in the area. Apparently there was a concert the evening of our reservation at Key Bank arena so no Happy Hour. Had we known that we would have 1. Made reservations for later and hopefully had a little less crowd or 2. Gone somewhere else.
If you want to hang with friends in a bar setting with bar food I would recommend 716...however not a place for date night.
Great place for the Sabres game tonight!!
Expensive and food was not good. Food took a long time to come out. Salads were plain and came out without any chicken. Manager removed from bill, it was still $80 for 2 burgers, fries, and 3 drinks. Won't be returning for dinner.
We were extremely disappointed in the service. We sat for 20 mins before a server came over, yet she got drinks for the next table that came in 10 mins after us. It then took almost 1/2 hour to get a salad & quesadilla. We had to rush to eat so we could get to the concert on time.
Appetizer and entree came at same time.
Vodka drink very weak - ordered a flavored vodka - could not taste flavor
The front desk was a little rude but the rest of the experience was wonderful!
Over all very good, had reserved table to didn't have to wait to be seated but a bit of a wait for food, guess the kitchen was backed up. Banana pepper pot stickers are really good, chicken wings and beef on weck also very good. Ordered the banana pepper mac and cheese but not sure if I got plain mac and cheese - had no banana peppers or flavor of them. It was still good, didn't say anything cause took a bit to get food in the first place. Server very nice and attentive. Will definitely go back.
Waiting over an hour for food.
Cold when arrived
Server was terrible. Nice but terrible. Food was luke warm at best like it was sitting in a window a while. We spent $275 and probably will not return even with season tickets to the Sabre’s
Waited 45 minutes past our reservation time to be seated.
Very warm in the building like the a/c wasnt working( 80 degree day outside)
Food took nearly an hour to arrive at table
First thing the waitress said was to explain the 10-12 items off the regular menu that they were out of.
Food was good when it arrived
Price was actually reasonable.
The food was good. Unfortunately, there weren't many vegetarian options to choose from on the menu.
