The music was too loud, and conversation wasn't possible. I would go back on a night without music and give it a second chance.

We had visited this location twice previously before it became 'Hooked' so we were not expecting much, but were delighted on our Friday night visit. The bar, service, food preparation and ambience made for a great meal.

The swordfish was absolutely wonderful and the fillet was perfect the salmon was a little fishy but it’s normally very good. The shrimp cocktail was also excellent as well as the fried calamari.

We ordered the chowder which was fantastic. I was hesitant thinking that it might be too strong (fishy) but I would definitely order it again. My sister and I decided to share the Seafood Tower for our entree. It was probably the freshest seafood I’ve had since I went to Maine. Oysters, clams, prawns, lobster and crab; enough food to take some home! Our waitress was very helpful and extremely friendly and attentive. Hooked is absolutely a keeper.

Food was great, servers and waitresses didn’t know the difference between white and brown anchovies. That was concerning in a seafood restaurant but other than that, we had a great time and the food was amazing!

Great find! The service was wonderful and the food even better. We went for the seafood, but they do have more to offer than that (check out the menu). The food was exceptionally cooked. Look forward to going again.
The restaurant is in the lobby of the Mosley Hotel, but there is covered parking and noise level was not intrusive. There was an acoustic guitar act playing in the evening as well. Overall, wonderful experience!

Food was excellent. I highly recommend the Bang Bang Shrimp. Drink selection was good, even though, in my opinion, I thought the House Cocktails were a bit odd to have while eating dinner. My lobster was good, although it was too heavily seasoned with a cajun mix but that could be my fault for not reading the details. I would order it again but with no seasoning. Prices were very reasonable. We will be back.

The Bang Bang Shrimp were delicious. Big and very tasty. Scallops and Salmon dinners were cooked perfectly. We were even treated to a glass of champagne since it was our anniversary. The bartender came by our table to ask what I thought of my Toucan Sam Jam Drink which was excellent. Our whole dining experience was great. We will definitely return.

We came here for my birthday dinner. It blew us away! The service was great, attentive but not bothersome. The food was amazing and perfectly proportioned. Can’t wait to go back. I’ve already recommended to two friends to check it out

The seafood tower app was pretty good. The lobster piece on it was excellent and the oysters fantastic. From an entree standpoint both of the entrees were done very well. I had scallops that were both cooked and seasoned perfectly. My wife’s salmon was also excellent. One of the signature cocktails was also done very well and tasty. I would say only small issues would be that dessert took quite awhile to get out to us after ordering and that the top of the creme brûlée was not quite hard and executed well. Finally a white Sambuca neat was served in what appeared to be a shot glass as opposed to a regular glass or snifter. All told we enjoyed dinner here and thought that most of the food was done very well. If you like seafood it is worth a trip.

Once again Hooked made our Saturday date night!
Chad recommended the perfect wine and was very attentive. Chef came out to see if I wanted to try a new type of swordfish he was working on (cajun spiced) - I did and it was fantastic!
What a great place to go for seafood in Buffalo!

We had an extended family dinner. We got to the table and it was very dark. We had to use our cell phones to read the menu, lol. There was a light above the table but it was very dim. Our server brought over 2 more tea lights which helped.
The food was great and came out very timely. Our server was on top of everything. We had drinks, apps and meals and it was very reasonable for 6 of us.

The lobster And salad was delicious but the side of sautéed spinach was over the top full of garlic. My friend loved the scallops and grilled asparagus.

Being our first time at Hooked ---it was quite pleasant. We did sit outside and a few times the traffic was annoying. But the food was excellent , There were good wine choices and the server was very accommodating.
