I always love going to Patina 250 for brunch. Their menu has something for everyone, and the food is always awesome. The atmosphere in there is always great as well. I’ll definitely be back.

Service was horrendous- we waited 10 minutes before anyone even came over with water. Then, we got our food but didn’t have silverware and couldn’t find our server anywhere to bring us some. Our food was cold by the time we could eat. Loved the ambience and food was great, but I won’t be coming back due to the lack of service.

The ambience was wonderful. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and efficient. I wished I asked the price of the scotch, but it was worth it. A wonderful evening with our friends. My only issue is with purchasing veg. side dishes. Veggies should come with your meal. Very similar to Sear (which we miss).

We were celebrating our work anniversary. After being seated, my business partner & I were greeted by our waiter with champagne to celebrate. Our waiter was fantastic, humorous and attentive. The food was excellent! We were not disappointed. Absolutely returning and spreading the word about this fabulous restaurant in Downton Buffalo!
Thank you for a wonderful evening!

I’ve dined here on several occasions when visiting. In the past I found the food was creative and well executed. Hence my return visits to Patina 250 with family and friends.

This occasion was my first return visit since late 2019. The food quality was very poor on two occasions. A total of three meals were ordered. Meat was over cooked. Pasta was mushy. Veggies in a pot pie were raw. Unacceptable.

Sad to see a good restaurant go so far downhill.

Cannot recommend until as significant commitment to quality is made and achieved.

Staff was pleasant and courteous. Service was good.

Second time here. Never disappoints. Food, service, ambience all top notch. I wanted to nap in our cozy booth after we ate. David our server was excellent. Ricotta gratin and buffalo cauliflower were my choices. Both were excellent. Dining out is tricky these days… thank you Patina for a great experience

Food was amazing. Service was prompt but they didn't bother us too often. You could tell the employees worked as a team since different people came to the table to deliver the food and clear plates. Our server kept our bottomless drinks filled. Will definitely be going back again.

On arrival, valet was quick, easy, and free. We were seated right away with a reservation. The hostess first wanted to seat us at a high top by the bar, but I asked for a regular table. At this price point, high tops should never be given to people with reservations- the bar area is for walk-ins. We were given a table without issue. The prosecco ($42) was quite good. The buffalo tempura cauliflower appetizer was amazing. We had the strip steak and the braised beef. Both were excellent, with the braised beef being the more interesting of the two dishes. We would have ordered dessert, but they only had decaf coffee. A latte or at least regular coffee would have been nice, and are a required accompaniment for us to order dessert. The ambiance is lovely. All in all a great experience.

Great atmosphere for brunch but one of our orders was listed on the menu as a "smoked salmon" omelet. What came out was eggs with actual overcooked salmon, not smoked salmon. They replaced the meal no problem but, by the time that order came, I was already finished my breakfast.

The food was great, as usual. We ordered the tempura cauliflower, the crispy maitake mushroom for our starters. Both were delicious! We also ordered the focaccia, which was very unique and drizzled in honey. The swordfish was prepared perfectly and was accompanied with an indian chutney. The steak was a bit overcooked. My husband asked for it rare and it was closer to medium. We brought a bottle of wine from home and asked about a corking fee. The hostess said there was no charge. We also asked the server who never told us there was a fee. But, we were charged around $35. It would have been nice to have been told ahead of time. For that cost, we would have just purchased a bottle, since our bottle was already a $70 bottle.

The location is key but you have to walk thru the hotel to find the front door. We ordered appetizers, dinner and desserts. The fig and mushrooms starts were shut the door great. I had the short ribs, the meat was tender and could of used some salt. The sides were just okay unidentifiable and not a compliment. Dessert was a nice compliment to the whole meal. Prices for wine were definitely inflated but we found a reasonable cab franc. The staff gave us a small nook which was wonderful. I would like to see some imagination with the menu. Do a full meal instead of ala cart. I probably won't be back but enjoyed my experience.

Waiter was very busy and did not have any help. Had to wait for drinks. We got our appetizers before we got our drinks. Very expensive. Another table had a dog sitting on the chair with them at the table. Not something you want to see for the amount of money you were paying for this restaurant

We had reservations for 4 at a high top table and were seated at a table shaped like a surfboard that was precariously wobbly and not really suited for 4 people to dine at. It was a tight fit for all of the dishes/cups even though we each only ordered 1 item. The food was delicious, though the potato with the eggs benedict was disappointing. Overall it was a good experience, we will go back but we won’t request a high table.
