Enjoyed our experience, but could not understand how they seated tables: everyone was seated on one side of the room instead of spreading tables out, and therefore the noise level was higher.

Food not cooked as ordered. Defensiveness why it arrived over-cooked reduced my enjoyment of the experience and enthusiasm. Service recovery training is needed. There are many other fine choices with better customer service.

A trip back in time to The Roycroft Inn. The menu is very gluten-free friendly, including desserts.
We ordered from daily specials, and their winter menu. Delicious risottos (as a main, or a side).
Great half size desserts available.
Polite attentive staff, vibrant fire flickering.

we happened to be there when it was very busy. It was loud due to a st.patricks party going on. Our food was very slow in being served but we did get a free bottle of wine. The wait staff was nice.

We normally love every bit of our experience however this time we brought a guest and the service was very slow , I think she went to smash the grapes as we waited for our bottle.. the curry dinners were outstanding and hot(temperature) however my mahi special was not very warm -disappointing and the server was rarely back
Very sad that it wasn't a great experience
Wanted to stay for the music but there wasn't a spot to sit or stand; MYb another time

It was an enjoyable lunch outing. Nice atmosphere- beautiful historic building, and very good waitress but it seemed understaffed. Only one waitress for the entire dining room. The food was delicious and the pricing was only a little higher compared to other restaurants serving the same food. We will be returning.

We had an overnight stay at The Roycroft Inn so we decided to have dinner at the Restaurant, as well. The Roycroft is a wonderful step back in time to the Arts & Crafts Era, started in 1895 by Elbert Hubbard. Our server allowed us to enjoy our cocktail before rushing us into meal choices. We enjoyed a leisurely dinner, starting with the Grilled Brie Cheese Plate that included the most wonderfully fresh blackberries and blueberries and Inn-made blackberry brandy jam and crostini. Our server was more than happy to provide us with additional crostini to enjoy with our brie. My husband & I both opted for the Veal Osso Buco special that was prepared to perfection. We chose to split The Dessert Sliver of the Apple Bourbon Cheesecake. The Roycroft never disappoints! We will be back!

We had a delicious dinner for 2 on my birthday. The Valentine's Day specials were still in effect, and you couldn't beat the deal. The lobster/seafood bisque was wonderful, my husband loved his HUGE Ceasar Salad, our entrees of filet and scallops were spectacular, and the flourless chocolate cake and creme brulee were devine...add the bottle of Cabernet included in the deal...WIN, WIN, WIN! The atmosphere here is very relaxed and our fireside seats were perfect. Service by Lynn was top notch. Thank you Roycroft Inn for a wonderful evening all around!

Maybe a little pricey and not an every Sunday brunch place. But well worth a splurge now and then. Everything about the place was excellent. Our waitress was very attentive, kept the coffee filled and making sure we were happy. A wonderful selection of food and choices. Quality of the food was great.
I took a friend for her birthday celebration and we were both very happy.

Disappointing. The pork was dry, the salmon dish was average. The other dishes, scallops and filet were good. But our celebration fell flat due to lack luster service. So not expected from such an iconic restaurant.

Having requested a special table to celebrate Valentine's Day I was quite happy to be shown a table in an alcove two hours prior to seating. However, we were shown a different table upon arrival at our reserved time and never quite made the necessary adjustment to overcome the disappointment we experienced. This, in my opinion, is a serious error which necessitate something more than an apology. A bottle of wine or desert would have changed my memory. Consequently, even though we enjoyed our food and the table near the fireplace we are unlikely to return.

We went with friends for Valentine’s Day. The filet was good and cooked properly. My husband and I both ordered the tomahawk pork chop and it was so dry that we had to ask for gravy to help us eat it. The mashed potatoes were dry as well. However, we all agreed that the crème brûlée was delicious!
Service was rather disappointing. Our waitress never came to our table to ask us if our meals were acceptable. She seemed very overwhelmed.
The atmosphere was lovely and the people were very kind.

My friend and I had a catch-up dinner at the Roycroft, early in the evening around 5 o'clock, and it was a lovely experience. The "patio" was quiet pre-dinner rush and the service was incredibly attentive. The food - my gnocchi and her short ribs - was tastefully plated and quite hearty. For the price, both dishes were a bit bland, but I suppose that's what happens when you're trying to please a larger clientele. The stand-outs of the night were actually the desserts; If you're a carrot cake person, you'll love the Carrot Cake Mousse Dome. Overall, it was a cozy, pleasant experience and the hotel itself is a must-see if you're ever in East Aurora.

Fantastic Sunday brunch! The omelette was delicious, so were the little sausage links. I think I overdid it a bit with the bacon...go figure. But the absolute icing on the cake was the waffles!!! I usually refrain, but they were as light and sweet as , uh, icing on a cake!!

The NY strip steak was a tough piece of meat and came out luke warm. The croquette was good and the veg side was below average. Appetizers were good. The desserts were average. The food is not worth the money. I wouldn’t go back there for dinner, only brunch.
