We were looking forward to this and it was a bit disappointing. We had a Caesar (best I’ve ever had), pierogis (good), baked Brie (cold), white gazpacho (very good) and the duck which was over cooked. Very attentive service. The layout was weird. The room was interesting.

Anniversary dinner - very good. Some remodeling underway so seating was a little odd but service was outstanding. Food was very good - the agnelotti were excellent and the dessert special! Thank you

My friend and I enjoyed a wonderful Sunday brunch on 9/8/19. We were warmly welcomed by the hostess and had a pleasant table at the back but a bit too close to a somewhat noisy birthday party in the big private room. The food was excellent, we took the brunch special which is good value for money when you consider it includes unlimited champagne or wine. My friend ordered the crab cakes which were the best we have ever had, I had a Cesar salad which was more than enough for two. We both had the eggs Benedict which were delicious, served over home made biscuits with just the right amount of Hollandaise sauce. While the desserts were tempting we were just too full to try them. Our serving person Julie was very attentive, warm and cheerful and made excellent recommendations from the menu. We had a delightful time and will definitely return.

Service was outstanding, however we had to send a drink back twice because it tasted so bad. Ordered the duck and it was very dry and flavorless, I hate complaining but I really should have because it was a $38 entree. The place is breathtakingly beautiful inside and as I said service was A+. I would give this place another chance, maybe they were just having an off night.

The food was great but the waiter was terrible. He wasn’t attentive our drinks took awhile and when they did come they were done incorrectly. He implied it was the bartender’s fault. However his service continued to be sub par. Our reservation was August 3rd at 7:00 and NOT busy.

We spend most of our summer in the Buffalo area and are constantly trying both new and established restaurants because we are true foodies! Patina 250 was a great experience for us. Yes, it is expensive but worth every dollar we spent. Located in the beautiful Westin Hotel in downtown Buffalo one can't help but be impressed when you get the first glimpse of the restaurant. The bar has a unique comfortable design and the tables were spaced apart so you don't feel like you are sitting in someones lap. The menu had some creative choices which was a problem for us because everything looked enticing. From Prime Beef to a crispy Duck a l'orange every appetizer and entree we tried was superb. We had the same problem with the desserts, every one of them sounded great! The presentation of the food and the knowledge that our server Julie had about the preparation of the dishes made it even more enjoyable. This is definitely a special occasion restaurant. It is classy with a great ambiance. If you could only eat in one restaurant during your visit here and although there are some very good choices I would have to say that Patina 250 would be the one to dine at.

Mixed feelings. Burrata salad came with several slices of what I think was prosciutto under the cheese, completely ruined the salad. I ordered the sweet corn polenta and it was nothing more than a bowl of creamed corn. The cauliflower appetizer and duck were quite good. As it is so often now, the music was way too loud, I am so tired of having to talk over it when trying to have a normal conversation. Overall, would not return.

First time at Patina 250 and my wife and I just loved the decor of the restaurant. The wine from Oregon was excellent and the overall quality of the food from appetizers to entrees was top notch. Finished off with a banana cream pie which was the best i’ve ever had.👍

The atmosphere was quiet and comfortable. Our service was excellent. We had salmon and steak entrees. The food was creative and well prepared. Considering how great the food and overall experience was, I was really surprised it was not busier. A highly recommended gem. One of the best in the city.

Love the decor,modern with great lighting. We were seated immediately for brunch on Saturday and offered beverages. The brunch menu has options for everyone. Tried the egg purgatory and the smoked salmon/egg scramble with a side of hash brown and turkey sausage. Eggs in purgatory were fabulous,eggs were baked to the right degree with a runny yolk.

Amazing night showing off our city to an out of town girlfriend who happened to have a birthday that night. We were moved to a private booth and Nick was a blast to have wait on us. Along with everyone else who brought drinks, bread etc to the table. We will be back! Post Malone Drink Menu was on point and the Buffalo Cauliflower was amazing!

Good was so-so. I had lamb. Very small portion but taste was not outstanding. Presentation was planning with a grain- colorless and not impressive taste or presentation. More pot roast taste than lamb.

This was my third time having dinner at Patina and on this occasion I brought my sister who was in visiting from Boston, MA. We had a wonderful meal - the food was excellent, great flavor combinations prepared with fresh ingredients. It is sometimes difficult to find that consistency time after time, and Patina 250 seems to have mastered it. The wait staff is excellent and you cannot beat the beauty and ambience of the restaurant. I know I will be back again. Mary M.
