    Bacchus Wine Bar & Restaurant

    54 W Chippewa St, Buffalo, NY 14202 (Franklin)

    "My husband and I came here for our anniversary. We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door and we're promptly seated. Dan was our server (he was phenomenal). He was knowledgeable of the menu and very attentive. We shared the butternut squash soup. Which was delicious. My husband had the chicken and I had the duck. This was my first time eating duck and it was excellent. For dessert we has the sticky toffee cake. It was a plate of sugary goodness," a user wrote on Trip Advisor.

    581 Delaware Ave, Buffalo, NY 14202-1201 (Allen Street)

    This is a beautiful, intimate restaurant with excellent service. After a long day it was a great place to relax and enjoy the food and service. The restaurant was full when we entered and I wouldn't say it was quiet but the noise was manageable. Since I am not from Buffalo I have no idea of the good tables but everyone seemed happy. The food was very good and I ate everything!

    "I've been going to Pano's since I've been living in the area. They have great breakfast/brunch selections throughout the day to great lunch and dinner greek selections. They have a great Lobster Mac'n'cheese too. I am a returning customer," a user wrote on Trip Advisor.

    "The fine ingredients and utmost attention to detail are consistent here. Buffalo is lucky to have Chef/Owner Corey Kley and his staff - the prix fixe and tasting menus are seasonal so we always have a variety to choose from. Can't wait til the weather warms up so we can enjoy the beautiful garden setting for our next visit!" a user wrote on Trip Advisor.
