    We booked the solar eclipse brunch. It was FABULOUS- from the food and creative bottomless drinks; to the service; the fun custom made balloon hats; the swag bag full of solar-themed merchandise; then the rooftop viewing with Prosecco - it was really a great experience. The moon rock profiteroles, the cupcakes with solar totality chocolate disks, and more, everything was so well done and fun that it made the fact that it was cloudy and totality did not make it to us a mere inconvenience!

    My friend I dined with is vegan. Our server was great and recommended the gnocchi dish because it was vegan and flavorful, so my friend went with that. It came out with cheese on it which was disappointing. So I waited to eat until a replacement dish came out for her. Other than that, cocktails, service and ambiance were great!

    Patina 250, located in the Westin in downtown Buffalo, is anything but a typical hotel restaurant. Very lively vibe, great drinks and interesting, very good, food. The decor is cool and it was filled with beautiful people (mixed crowd but definitely was leaning into a younger, well dressed vibe). Cocktails were awesome…we sat at the bar for drinks and dinner. Bartender named Cooper was tremendous…while manning a VERY busy service bar, he managed to also take great care of half the bar. Great young guy, very professional but also charming and warm (my wife was a tad enchanted). We will be making return visits!

    Ambience was nice; music playing could have been somewhat lower to allow easier conversation. Unhappy that even though we received repeated texts saying our table was ready, and we arrived right on time, the host wouldn’t seat us until the remaining two members of our party came (5 minutes later). Seemed like an unnecessary policy/inconvenience at 5:30 on a Saturday night to force us to linger at the entrance rather than being seated; it doesn’t set a good tone at the onset. Bar service was very slow. It took a very long time for our drinks to arrive (to his credit our server repeatedly checked in to answer questions on the menu and kept saying our drinks would be coming). He finally took our orders for food before the drinks arrived. Kitchen pace was also very uneven — food took a long time to come (which we didn’t necessarily mind because we were not in a hurry), but then three entrees arrived before the final entree, so food got cold while we waited before everyone was served. The restaurant very nicely celebrated my husband’s birthday with a sparkler in a complementary dessert, which we really appreciated, but then took a long time for our guests’ dessert to arrive so the birthday ice cream melted while we waited. Food was good, although not spectacular. Scallops were excellent (a substitution for cod); pasta was average. On the whole it was a very nice experience and with a professional waitstaff, but a bit of unevenness in the kitchen pace.

    Overall we had a good experience but our server was a bit slow. Two of the three ordered the bottomless mimosas and our server wasn't as attentive to that as they have been in the past. We had someone with a peanut allergy and while they did help with some of the options they could have, they still brought their meal out with something that was fried in the peanut oil. A bit frustrating after we talked about it while ordering and then she had to wait for her meal to be re-made.

    First time at Patina 250, and we were greeted right away and escorted to our table. Service was outstanding - our waitress - Jen - did an excellent job explaining and recommended the appetizers and dinner options. Drinks were excellent, and overall experience was great. Would definitely recommend it for a night on the town in Buffalo!

    The food was outstanding. I had the salmon and my wife had the gnocchi... Both were very well done. The atmosphere is modern and comfortable. It's a very open floor plan so the noise is there, but it's not overwhelming. The bar is well stocked and the drinks were great. Our service was just average. Our server was playing the "if I stare straight ahead I don't have to come over" game. Twice we had to ask other servers just to go find ours. I think we'd probably be on the fence about returning, just because there are so many other great options in the area now. It's definitely worth a try.

    Met a friend for lunch, went here because people recommended it. We both had the citrus beet salad - I had chicken & my friend had salmon. Salad was delicious except for $9.00 up charge for chicken I feel as if the portion could of been a bit bigger. It was the size of a child’s palm. So for over a $20 salad I’d expect a bit more protein.
