We first dined there because of my child’s attending school in Buffalo and have brunch there after the graduated ceremony last two weekends ago. (My review on Yelp); the 3rd time is less ideal

Very good food, ambiance and service.

The sleek waiter Ted isn’t there but a second year law student – he looked almost under age hence I asked. I knew an undergrad kid who worked on Wall St last summer making 6 figure income. Not that waiting table is any less dignified, each one has his or her own desire and path. Wish everyone a happy journey to their destination. Oh, a little off topic here.

My review on Yelp in 2013, 4-star stays:

Finally I found a restaurant I like in Buffalo! The lively atmosphere is more sophisticated than the rest of the city. It deserves an extra credit for olive oil and olives.
They serve the wine out of carafe – nice touch
Bread, delicious
Avocado spring roll, very good
Sauteed Wild Mushrooms over green: awesome
Their special Charcuterie with picked fennel, yellow blond beet, house smoked duck ham, bresaola, wild boar sopressata, finocchiona, calabrese capicola – awesome
Frog legs: hamburgerized also? So huge, not good – McDonnell’s wings tasted better
Meat loaf: ok
Free range chicken: decent
Pecan pie: very good

Our waiter Ted knows his craft and carries himself really well. He won’t look out of place as a Fortune 500 executive.
