Our dining experience was really nice. We arrived a little early to enjoy a cocktail in the bar area before dining. The food was excellent and nicely presented. We haven't been to the Roycroft in some years, but we will definitely be going back soon.

So Open Table had ads all over for Local Restaurant Week. We had a family occasion to celebrate so we thought it was a good time to try a place we'd never been before. We indicated in the reservation that it was for a wedding anniversary ( 43rd ) for someone who'd been through difficult health issues. Open Table offered only 2 options for Sat. Oct. 12th. for the Roycroft Inn Restaurant, both of which seemed too early for us for a dinner. Nevertheless, we opted for the later one @ 2:45pm.
When we got there, we were the only ones in the room. Next the server informs us that the menu for LRW is not available 'till 5pm! Also if we could decide ASAP as the kitchen was closing @ 3 to get ready for the LRW ! We wanted to walk out but we didn't just come from down the road, we ventured out of our way to check out this highly regarded place for a 43rd Wedding Anniversary.
The manager did come to our table to explain the situation but didn't really give us any options except for us to come back @ 5pm. Then asked if we wanted champagne ( didn't say if it was gonna be on the house or what.)
Anyway , our server, Philip, was good at his job, was attentive and helpful.
We all totally hoped to try the LRW offerings so we were disappointed for not being able to do that much less NOT be informed about the restaurant's time restrictions for LRW.
Our table ordered the Mahi mahi, a pasta with shrimp, crepes with beef tips& mushrooms, & the poke bowl. The favorite turned out to be the pasta/shrimp dish.
The dark chocolate truffle cake & Blondie with fudge were good choices.
We tried to make it an enjoyable outing in spite of an embarrassing predicament which we felt could have been handled better by Roycroft Inn Restaurant. In the end, the 3 glasses of Martin & Rossi prosecco was on the house, thank you very much.
However , for a place with a solid reputation for good service & good food I'm sorry to say that the Roycroft disappointed.

We were surprised that 2 drinks from the bar came to a total of $25.00 so we will stick with water the next time we go for dinner. Everyone in our party enjoyed the Restaurant Week dinners, especially the little dessert. Our servers were most attentive and checked frequently to see that our needs were met. The setting is most inviting and comfortable.

Our experience was a Buffet Brunch at Roycroft Inn: service was friendly and capable; music added a graceful atmosphere; the carvers had excellent filet de boeuf and porc; selections were numerous and appealing, especially desserts; a nice Mimosa was particularly pleasant. Had anything been amiss, we would say so. A return visit is certain.

Our servicer, Susan and busser Sage were very good, we had a delightful time for my wife birthday. Our meals were great and prepared nicely. We will be coming back again soon.
I would suggest a little more of an extended menu for seafood, otherwise outstanding!
Thanks

This brunch was a delightful blend of old and new, memories and new adventures. I remember when there were a number of really great brunch buffets in WNY but they are hard to find. This one transported me back to the days of custom omelets, carving station and high quality everything. But there were lots of fresh takes also like the assortment of pickled and curried vegetables, buttermilk catfish and a watermelon salad with a perfect balance of sweet, tart and savory. And the desserts were amazing-pumpkin pie and chai cheesecake, banana pudding, gooey chocolate and nutty delights. The weather afforded a chance to sit on the Inn's peristyle, our waitress and her son who was bussing were so attentive and the string quartet's melodies wafted throughout.

We went there for the Sunday brunch. The atmosphere was disappointing. Everything felt as though it needed updating as it was old and worn. The gift store smelled musty. The lighting was extremely dark on the stairs where you went up and down to the buffet. The overall feeling was heavy and old. The food was disappointing. Due to the cost we expected a beautiful buffet. There was nothing special on the buffet . It felt like a diner breakfast selection. There were no shrimp, no smoked salmon, etc. The things you would expect making it a special Sunday buffet. The service was disappointing. Despite having made a reservation, when we arrived we were put in the very back. I sat facing the wall. What was the most distressing about this was that there were five empty tables along the windows. On each table was a sign that said reserved. I asked if we could sit there. She said no they were reserved. 20 minutes into the meal no one was sitting there. I asked if there was a large party coming. She said no. They are just tables for people that had made reservations. I said I had made a reservation. She said she was sorry we could not sit there. 40 minutes into our meal they continued to be empty. She came over and said if we wanted to move over to a table there it would be fine. We said no thank you as we were done. This leads me too definitely believe they’re just tables that are held for people they think are special enough to sit there when they come for the reservation. Imagine having people crammed in the corner with five empty tables along the windows? I rarely give bad reviews but this one was just over the top. I highly recommend not going to this establishment. Overall it was depressing, dirty, bland food and frustrating to be stuck in a corner with tables waiting for –??? Brad Pitt? Drake? What the heck?

We love the roycroft. But tonight was not good. No amuse-bouche, no bread. I was given the $12 Caesar salad. Thought I was getting the $7 one. Waitress didn’t ask the $7 or $12. My husband and I did the burger night. Our burgers were dry and are fries were burnt. Like I said we love The Roycroft just super disappointed tonight.

The Roycroft Inn was such a treat on a multitude of levels. The surroundings are so incredible just sitting in the restaurant was a treat! The food was simply the icing on the cake. Every individual we spoke with was pleasant and helpful. From the moment we set foot in The Roycroft we felt welcomed. We loved it so much, we will be returning on the regular basis even if it is an hour long drive.

I always love dining at the Roycroft and introduced it to a friend of mine. We had lunch on the porch- the lunch was delicious but the service was on the slow side. Otherwise, it was a wonderful experience.
