This was our second time for dinner and my husband and I were not pleased with the food this time. It was very salty tasting and our waitress was good up until we received our food. After that, we never saw her again until it was time for our check. A little disappointing this time around.
Very noisy restaurant. Thought the food only fair
One of my favorite restaurants in Buffalo. Great atmosphere, great food!
Food was good and fast for being busy on Valentine’s day. Server was super friendly, great stuffed peppers
Valentine’s Day date!
My only complaint it was chilly along the windows and the hostess seemed put out when we requested to change tables. She was the only downside to a very nice evening.
Took 5 grandkids ages 11-18, great place for a pre-theater dinner. Food, portions, service...everything met all expectations!
Always enjoy my meals st thr Cabaret. Fun setting before a show or sabres game. Service was pretty quick, toi.
Noisy and busy but great value
Very busy evening but the staff were excellent and service was excellent!
Had a great meal before our show at Sheas. Waitress was attentive and friendly. Thank you for starting off a great family evening.
Great dinner on a busy theater night. Wonderful location before a show. Thank you!
The service was outstanding!! Food was excellent with generous portions!! I highly recommend The Caberet!! As a table of ten which included three children, I was so pleased!!
Food was delicous. It's just a little loud. They are sure to get you out in time for a play
The food was good. The noise level was beyond loud. We actually this restaurant because of its proximity to Sheas. The waitress was friendly but she only came to our table 3 times. Sorry, we will not be going back.
Food was great, fast service, we were running late and they saved are table.
Great service, great drinks, great food! What more could you ask for? :)
I absolutely love it here! The food is always delicious 😍
Our server Sharon took great care of us and made us feel very welcome!
Excellent service & food! Would highly recommend eating there
The clams casino were not good
If they would have ground the clams and made a stuffing and then back into shell instead of adding bread crumbs to the clams
No Heinekin beer??!
My date was not happy with her salad
We did not complain - just won’t be back
The service was excellent, the place was very cozy and clean and dinner was delicious!
The dining experience was wonderful, a few bumps in that experience. The coffee was terrible, don't know how old it was or what but definitely not drinkable, the waitress did remove the charge from our check. I wasn't happy that the restaurant didn't accept Discover credit card will remember that for the future, and inform any one I tell about our dining about this. All in all was happy to discover this restaurant for attending any future shows at Shea's.
I arrived early and sat at the bar while I waited for my friends. The staff was very friendly and it was my bartender’s first night! Cocktails were on point
Our dinners were great too as well as the wait staff
Highly recommend the Gorgonzola steak salad
food was well prepared, cooked perfectly, and a great value overall. service was good, I recommend trying this place if you haven't yet.
This place is amazing,ordered chickem parm it is out of this world.waitress was friendly and did a great job.will be back
I have been to Cabaret numerous times, so I was very happy when we could get in for New Years Eve. I was surprised by the limited menu, I did not notice that mentioned on the website, but I admit I might have missed it. I chose the stuffed chicken which was very disappointing. It was small, and the tomato sauce poured on top made it look a little less appetizing. My twiced baked potato looked like it might have had a third heating in the microwave, and a measly 3 stalks of asparagus finished off the plate. I did enjoy my complimentary wine and dessert and the service was good, but my husband had ordered a cup of coffee, which we saw the server making, but since she left before finishing up our table, he never received it.
Really bad food . I was excited to go here because I ate a good lunch there the week before. The New Years menu was absolutely awful and very pricey . The food was bad banquet hall fare . I will not be returning.
Food was very good but our waitress seemed preoccupied and was seldom around. My wife even commented that she wished we had the other waitress that was frequently seen at her tables. Son ordered a meatball with his meal. He never received it. Granted a meatball with the meal he ordered was not usual, but he wanted to try it. He was only drinking water which was seldom refilled. Asked for a refill once and it took quite a while for it to happen. (We were there after the start of a Shea’s attraction and the restaurant was almost empty so I doubt she was too busy.) My wife had left overs and asked for them to go. We were a block away when she remembered that the waitress had never returned with them (partially our fault for not remembering.) Parking - if there is an event at Shea’s parking is an issue. I parked in a ramp on the other side of Chippewa Street on Pearl. Not terribly far but a decent walk in the cold. Our food though was very good. I ordered the chicken piccata special and was very happy with it. Son had the chicken gorgonzola and enjoyed it and my wife had the lobster ravioli, which came with 3 large shrimp, which she enjoyed.
Easy to find. Parking for $ right outside the door, worth it for closeness. Small intimate setting, but noise level high. ALL staff friendly and attentive. Great service. Food tasty and served quickly. Directly across street from alley entrance leading to Alleyway theatre and Sheas. Would recommend.
Food was incredible. Though she wasn’t horrible our waitress could have been much better.
Disappointed with the over all experience. They had no potato available that night. Only starch was risotto. It was poorly prepared. It was a busy Saturday night but only 6 pm. Did they not plan accordingly? Steaks were dry and over cooked. The garlic platter was large and was very tasty. There was only about 10 pieces of bread to use with the platter. We asked for more bread for the platter (an extra charge) and never did receive it. The service was fair. Waitress seemed extremely rushed and did not take our entire order. We had to give the rest of the order to the hostess. To many other places around Sheas with better food and service. Not recommending my friends to go there.
Dinner at Caberet before Hamilton at Shea's was a great experience, food was excellent and prices reasonable. The service was good even though the room was busy before the show.
Had the chicken pesto special, was fantastic. Server and staff were friendly and prompt. Perfect for pre theater meal.
Came here for dinner before seeing Hamilton at Shea’s. We arrived before our reservation and were seated immediately. Our server greeted us promptly as we admired the decor. We ordered two martinis and the stuffed peppers to start. My sister in law loved her Mama Mia martini. I ordered the Jack Frost and did not care for it at all. I was expecting a little sweetness from the lemonade or prosseco but there was none. The stuffed peppers were absolutely amazing. They came out piping hot and creamy. Our server was knowledgeable in gluten free choices and even went back and asked the chef questions about ingredients and preparation. My SIL and I both ordered the steak Oscar which was so delicious. It was served with risotto and asparagus. The hollandaise sauce had flour in it so the chef prepared a lemon dill sauce on mine. We shared a bottle of red wine since we had time to kill. My sister in law finished the meal with a piece of chocolate cake. We did not expect a huge piece to be served. She ended up taking most of it home. I highly recommend this restaurant and can’t wait to eat here again.
Pleasant atmosphere, good food. Service was a little slow sometimes, but otherwise we enjoyed it prior to going to Shea's. The roasted garlic platter appetizer is HUGE and delicious! My lobster ravioli was just so-so, but my mom said the strip steak was excellent. They could have a larger dessert selection.
Food is always good and consistent. Service was great. Friendly staff.
Excellent dinner. Food was fresh and delicious! Staff was very friendly! Only bad point was the noise level.
Service was excellent. The menu is not huge but varied enough so everyone has an option. Unfortunately my steak had more fat and grizzle than I would have expected. The location of this restaurant is superb for dinner before the theater.
Had an excellent dinner with a party of 7 here before a show. Great tasting meals and drinks, and lal in a very reasonable price. Had a perfect evening.
