    Warm, friendly, local spot for dinner! Hubby had the short ribs and I had the chicken - both very solid with fresh ingredients, good portions (no leftovers but we were both very satisfied). Great cocktails, smooth service, and pleasant atmosphere in a welcoming space. Would love to go back in warmer weather!

    Great quality food. Drinks are high quality and worth the trip. Love the ambiance of the house turned into a restaurant. They need to work on their table settings (make it look cuter and more quaint). Also more decorations inside.

    I went for the first time last night and loved it! We were able to get seats at the bar which we prefer. Everything was so good! We had the corn dip, smoked whitefish dip, and the burger. Was sadly too full for dessert but we will be back!

    The food and cocktails were excellent! The short rib entree was outstanding - tender melt in your mouth with a side of mashed potatoes - a perfect comfort food entree. The salmon was excellent as well - nicely seasoned and paired with couscous and vegetables. All entrees are very reasonably priced. Limited wine selection but selections were good. Had an autumn inspired cocktail which was very good. Staff is very attentive. Definitely worth a return visit.

    This was our first dining experience at Hummingbird. Food was excellent! The beef short rib special was very tender, lean and perfectly seasoned. Salmon entree was excellent as well. Very good wine and cocktail menu. Will definitely repeat this neighborhood gem!

    Beautiful dining room and bar. Very friend staff. Great menu options - reasonably priced. The 6 oz filet was cooked perfectly and was tender and tasty! We were a party of 6 women - everyone enjoyed their meal and there were no complaints! I would definitely dine her again and have already recommended it to several friends.

    We had a great table away from the noise. But it was quite loud. The drinks were good and creative. The food was presented well, but Salmon wasn't quite rare enough for our taste. The appys were good but small. We did like the overall experience.

    Unfortunately, I was underwhelmed with my dining experience. The food was just ok…I think stick with cocktails and appetizers ( I will say the smoked whitefish app was delish! The fish/chips and salmon was just so so…) And unfortunately, we sat in the indoor/outdoor room which was loud music and a more bar atmosphere vs. sophisticated cocktail lounge…:(

    Discovered this gem on a stormy night when another shall-remain-unnamed Nee Buffalo eatery that we frequent had to cancel our outdoor table due to weather. A redone home, quiet smaller place that is very enjoyable and unique. Cocktails by a skilled bartender really shine. Service spot on as well. Menu somewhat limited but food tasty. A great option when in the area.

    Not to complain, I know it’s difficult to get employees these days. Service was very pleasant and friendly and we got our appetizers right away but it took a long time get our drinks and our entrees. The steak, salmon and asparagus were a little over cooked. Mashed potatoes were good but needed more flavor. We liked the look and feel of the inside. Enclosed patio was stark and steamy.

    The place was so classy, loved the colors. The old fashioned bar and archways were a nice surprise as it is located in a renovated house. The drinks were inventive and so tasty. The most important was the food was delicious and the staff was amazing. We highly recommend this place and can’t wait to return.
