    This is probably the least flattering review I've given ESB. Unfortunately this time drinks slow to be offered/delivered, waitress seemed scattered. All but 2 entrees delivered then an additional 10 min wait for the others. Meatballs were dry, cioppino had minimal seafood for the cost ($21) and finally the waitress had no idea how to settle our bill when given cash and card. I hope this is a one off.

    Food was very good. Caesar, and Brussel sprout pizza were my favorite. On the other side I thought the mussels lacked depth in flavor and were drastically under cooked which grossed me out.

    As always, we had a wonderful evening at Elm Street. Maddy seems to always be our server and she is simply fantastic every time! The food was all delicious, but the Angry Jay pizza could’ve used a lot more peppers, for it being a pepper based pizza it was a little underwhelming in flavor. Other than that everything was great and we will certainly be back to dine again soon.

    Love the place, frequent customers for all three meals of the day. We do, however, feel that the pricing for some of the dinner menu items are very steep. Food is always delicious but dinner especially, is not a moderate priced date night. Thanks for all your wonderful foods, keep up the great addition to the East Aurora food scene!

    First, our server, Sarah, was excellent: knowledgeable, enthusiastic, attentive without going overboard. The food is always excellent. This time we had the crispy potatoes and ribollita for appetizers and two 6-inch pizzas for entrees: the Angry Jay and the mushroom. I think the Angry Jay will be my new usual. We shared a great bottle of wine: Oddero Barbera D'alba Superiore. This has been our go-to restaurant for a while now. Always a great experience.

    My boyfriend and I came here for a holiday date this past weekend. The bakery was decorated beautifully and the service was on point. The food was delicious. The only reason why I’m not rating it 5 stars is because it was scorching hot. Literally we were faint and my boyfriend thought at one point he was going to pass out. Some tables were in a near panic because of the heat. The waitress was so apologetic of the temperature and stated it was a real struggle for the restaurant on a continual basis. It’s a shame because everything else was just picturesque.

    The Pizza was OK but didn't live up to the hype. We've had far better brick oven pizzas. The French Onion soup was decent but IMO could use more of a beef stock flavor. For $11 it was overpriced. The biggest disappointment was the Tenderloin skewers over Polenta. Neither of us cared for the dish at all. Overall, nothing impressed us enough to want to return.

    One of the finest establishments in the country. The only place to serve breakfast - lunch and dinner ALL with fresh high quality foods - consistantly. The entire staff are professional and match the calm ambiance my wife and I always experience. Not to mention, we drive 30 minutes nearly every week to go there. Great wines too.

    As usual the food was great. Minimal wait time with reservations. Our server was good initially but then seemed to lose interest in us. She wasnt bad we've just had better there. Hit the dessert bar before we left and I was a little disappointed, last time we bought sweets when they were that close to closing they gave us BOGO deals, not this time, $20 for 2 cookies a granola bar a donut and a lemon parfait.

    Elm Street Bakery is the best. Their food, chef prepared, is so adventurous. We love exploring their menu that changes with the freshness and availability of different ingredients. From starters to desserts, the experience is absolutely delicious. We love trying new wines on their wine list, without fear of being overcharged. Each meal is an adventure. The service is so great. They treat us like family. Elm Street Bakery is my favorite!
