Great food and great service. Mention a birthday and get money off your bill, and you'll want it because it's not a cheap meal. Well worth it to celebrate a birthday and graduation though.

Food and service was excellent. We were upstairs and it was so hot up there they had to set up fans. That really is my only complaint

Classic steakhouse. I had the NY strip and wife had Sea Bass, both done superbly.
Save room for dessert, chocolate cake for two!

For the amount of money I spent I was not impressed. The server was friendly but did not come over to check on us. The calamari we ordered was chewy/rubbery which should not be the case for the price you were charging. You could also work on presentation of the dishes. My boyfriend ordered a steak and it came out on this giant plate with the steak in the middle. It looked very sad and underwhelming. I expected more and don’t plan on returning after this.

While the food was very nice the service was above average but not great. We dined on the second floor on Mother’s Day and there was a constant cool breeze that chilled our legs and made us wear our coats on our shoulders. Our cocktails and wine took a long time to get and the coffee at the end of the meal was luke warm. For $355 for four our expectations were not met.

I had the prime rib. It was good but not special. I expected otherwise. My wife had soup and a salad. Again, both good but not that great. I like a restaurant that lets you savor the moment but I was tested. The coffee took almost fifteen minutes to arrive. Patience is the key to an enjoyable meal here. I enjoyed the evening but if it was a five star event I am not impressed. Our waiter was enjoyable and helpful!

Good food and service but noisy and overpriced. Love the beet salad and the prime rib. I had wrenched my knee and asked for a first floor table which was accommodated but then there was a chill wind every time the door opened. I am much more likely to go to Russells when I want a nice steak and a nice evening out.

Food was amazing! Female bartender was a little snarky at first, then tried to be "extra nice"- a little too late. Waited for a drink at the table for quite a while. - Overall food was fantastic service mediocre

Way over priced! I knew that going in but after seeing a story on the news that day about the restaurant owner not paying staff over $50k.... FIFTY THOUSAND dollars in tips owed I was regretting I made this surprise birthday reservation. Both of my daughters are servers so I will never support a place that would be so greedy! That restaurants reputation as 5 star is because of their hard workers! Hopefully people will realize there are plenty more awesome places to dine in Buffalo and will not patronize this restaurant! Shameful.

Truly excellent steaks and amazing service from a true professional (Janos). The side was indeed sized for sharing as advertised. My steak (Kansas Strip) was beautifully aged and cooked to a perfect rare. Nice wine selection as well. Came after a show at Shea’s and will definitely be back.

I was very excited about my reservations and was very much looking forward to a great steak for my birthday after all of the hype about the place. I ordered the rib-eye medium rare it came to the table medium well and tasted burnt. My wife ordered the Delmonico. The top of both steaks were chared. I ate about a third of the steak and could no longer handle the burnt flavor. About 20 minutes before we finished our meal i asked for a refill on my Pepsi and never received one even after our waiter stopped at the table twice and said he was going to grab me another Pepsi. At that point my wife and I decided we did not even want to stay for desert. $170.00 is a lot for a burnt steak mac and cheese and asparagus. This visit was the first and last for me. I am very disappointed my choice for my birthday dinner.

We have been there severe times in the past and absolutely loved our meals. However, this time it was not the same. To begin with the ice water was terrible, unfiltered and tasted like toilet water. Which forced us to have to purchase a soft drink. We generally just drink water and didn’t have a choice because it was so bad. The steak we ordered was ordered medium and was actually five medium well.
We don’t like to send our door back so we choose not to say anything but we left the restaurant very disappointed. For the price we paid we should have left completely satisfied and that was not the case. We would not ever return for these reasons.

One of our favorite restaurants in Buffalo. The ambiance is wonderful, warm, inviting. It feels special, even at the bar. This can not be said of other area restaurants. The steaks are sublime as are the side dishes. We have always enjoyed this restaurant and will continue to do so. Our only fault with our most recent visit was that our waitress, a very pleasant woman, was somehow switched out to a male waiter, after we discussed our "cue" with her on when we would be ready to order. Our male server was efficient and pleasant as well but not entirely on point. Suggestion: restaurant order a bottle of Febreeze so that our waiter can spray down after he takes a trip out for a cigarette - just not the wafting smell we were after in a steak house! Otherwise, wonderful meal. Thank you Chop House.
