We came down to the restaurant and sat at the bar and had a few drinks and appetizers about 1.5 hours before dinner reservation. And then requested a specific table for our dinner which we got. There was also a live band who I would LOVE to know the name of. Dinner was delicious, service was great!! We never felt rushed! Between appetizers at the bar and dinner, we hung out for 4 hours and listened to the music. It was such a great night. And the food, the food!!! It was amazing every single thing!! The brussel sprouts with pancetta, carrots, and balsamic were to die for!! My single favorite thing on the menu, and we tried quite a few things, but those brussels were out of this world!! I have no complaints and it was a perfect choice for mine and my husbands wedding anniversary. We will be back!

First time visiting Hooked. Able to get a 7:45 reservation with no problem. We enjoyed the live music and the minimal interaction with the hostess and server.

To start, the drink and food options were good/fine.
However, my date and I ordered a bottle of wine and we were not given anything to keep the bottle chilled. Usually not a big issue considering we won’t be there very long. Except that our food took an hour from the time we ordered to bring placed on the table. The server did warn us, after we had ordered, that it was going to be slow. Needless to say, our bottle of white wine was not chilled when pouring the last glass.

As I said, the staff was good and friendly but there’s no reason it should take an hour to get meals on the table for a party of 2.

Very unlikely we go back there anytime soon.

Very modern and nice looking but looks can be deceiving food was not worth eating. There was no social distancing felt very uncomfortable to eat on top of others. The service was very slow would not return.

We were pleasantly surprised that Hooked was a big upgrade from the previous MTK that was in the restaurant space. Service was attentive but not overbearing, food was very good, portions perfect. Very reasonable prices too- will return again soon.

Everything was pretty good. Word of advice from a fellow cook: please season EVERYTHING with garlic, onion, black pepper and salt TO START and then add any steak seasonings, old bay, etc. my lobster tail ONLY had old bay. So when I went home, I used minced garlic, butter, lemon and the seasonings I suggested above and it was delicious. It was kind of bland with just old bay at the restaurant. It was a great texture though and not
Overcooked. I squeezed a bowl of
Lemon on it when it came out, so I was ok at the restaurant. Our service was EXCEPTIONAL. Absolutely excellent! We had a great waiter, zero complaints. I would recommend Hooked at about an 8/10.

Although we had made a reservation several days earlier, my husband and I were seated in a small side room with only three other small dining tables, each with a party of two seated at them. The room had no windows, no paintings or other wall decor, other than a large wall-mounted television that was not playing. The floor had no plants or decorations, there were no bud vases or other florals, or linens, on tables, and the single votive on each of the four tables were not lit. Although our server was nice and the food was decent, it felt very much like we were eating dinner in a closet.

The blackened salmon was scrumptious—so moist and tasty. Grilled asparagus was cooked perfectly. Husband loved his creamy risotto with the broiled scallops. Our server, Jake, was very efficient & attentive. We were so pleased to be enjoying dinner in a nice setting again, and we were thrilled that patrons seemed to be supporting Hooked—very nice experience!!

Went for dinner with a party of 4. Server was fantastic. Food was very good. Music at times was a little loud, but didn't disturb us. Setting was comfortable as we sat for 4 1/2 hours and talked. Never felt like they were pushing us to leave.

Seafood was fresh and good. Pastas were dry....some dishes needed more seasoning. Good portions. Slow kitchen but we weren't in a rush so, no biggie. Waiter was very busy yet still attentive.

We were in a corner and the chairs were up against the wall and had to move the table out. They had 5 tables in their back room and it was very close seating. They were so busy, that we didn’t have good service. Long waits for water and cleaning the tables. The music was loud, almost like a club. The server had no problem coming back for the bill two times, which we hadn’t put our payment in yet. Very disappointed, the previous time here was much better.

We actually went because they had a complimentary burger offer. They definitely are a seafood place, but the burger was great! The salmon and seabass were excellent as were the sides. Great cocktail/wine/beer offerings too.

My husband and I went to Williamsville during a bad snow storm and stayed in the Mosey Hotel, which is where this restaurant is located. We ordered 3 small plates - the Bang Bang Shrimp, Lobster Rolls and the Calamari, with a side of the fried Brussel Sprouts, and everything was delicious. Our drinks were well crafted, and the fresh bread was hot and delicious and it was served with whipped butter and cinnamon sugar whipped butter, which was especially nice. We ordered the cheesecake to go, and it was creamy and so good!! The wait staff was attentive and friendly. We'll be going again!

The restaurant is nice and the food was good. Our table was next to the front door which they unfortunately allowed people to come in and out of on a freezing cold night. So you got a blast of freezing air when people went outside. Not sure why they don’t just block that door off when you can easily enter and exit through the hotel lobby. The waitress was very good however took very long to come back to the table each time she left. The longest was waiting for change which she was gone the longest, stating she could not find change which is fine I guess? Overall it was a fine dinner, but not a place I would recommend or rave about.

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.
