Everything from the time we walked in the door to the time we walked out was perfect!!! We arrived a few minutes late and the hostess was more than gracious and let us grab a drink at the bar before we sat down. Drinks without fail we’re beyond average!!! Tony was fantastic and our drinks were superb!! Franklin our waiter was attentive and spot on without ever being pushy. All 4 of our courses were delicious and beautiful!! Above everything else Angela the manager made our evening so extra special that I cannot put it into words. She really does this restaurant an incredible service and really put our experience over the top. I you haven’t tried Patina....GO!!! Well played to the entire staff. I will 100% recommend this place to anyone who will listen

Table took 25 minutes to be ready. We were waiting with my clients. Restaurant provided free appetizers but still, 25 minutes wait for a table on a reservation made over a week ago is not acceptable.

While the service at Patina 250 was very good, the food was less so. The takoyaki starter could have been anything - there was no hint of the "sea", no real taste of anything. The spring lamb was overcooked, and the mashed potatoes were a hair's breadth away from being potato soup. A fairly memorable meal for all the wrong reasons.

I am a delighted first time diner based on my experience at Patina! We celebrated my sister's birthday and both of us were immediately impressed by the "happy birthday" greeting extended by the hostesses upon arrival as well as a personal note card waiting on the table for her, with birthday wishes from the Patina 250 staff. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about food and beverage options and made food-wine pairing recommendations which were excellent. Overall, the quality of our meal and the service was outstanding. We felt a warm, welcoming vibe from every member of the restaurant staff. We sat in the dining room which was elegant, but comfortable and conducive to dinner conversation. Steps away was a beautiful, well-lit and energetic bar area which is also an option for someone desiring dinner among a lively crowd. This is a new favorite on my list :-)

We were a party of 5. There was only 6 or7 other patrons in the restaurant. We sat down at 6:45 and didn't finish until 10. $ of us order trout. They were all served cold and had to returned to the kitchen. This is the 3rd time we have eaten there and each time as been worse. There won't be a 4th.

We had lunch, appetizerwas just so-so, the Caesar salad was delightful, but was surprised that it wasn't prepared tableside like other upscale restaurants. The entrees, steak, we've grilled better steaks at home on the grill, the Scottish salmon was rperfect, buttery morsel. Desserts and a
coffee not memorable. Nice place, pricing...probably has everything to do with location it's in the Delaware North bldg and is linked to a Westin

The food was very close to being excellent but every dish fell short by just a slim margin. It felt like the human element was missing and a lot of it was mass produced ingredients made in advance. The service was a bit awkward at times and not very polished for a high end restaurant.

The food was good, our party had salmon, pasta and roast chicken. All were really tasty except the chicken was a little soggy. Sides were good, roasted brussel sprouts, sauteed spinach and mashed potatoes. We had to ask for ice for our water several times. Desserts were excellent but we werent offered coffee or tea at the end. I am being super picky, but there are a lot of good restaurants in Buffalo and I think we will try others before we return to Patina.
