Absolutely excellent. The lg plates have the perfect amount of innovation. We are real food snobs and this was one of our top 5 meals this year 😍😍

My boyfriend and I had come here for restaurant week and we were both blown away by absolutely everything. The atmosphere was causal, charming and welcoming; seeing the clean, well organized and open kitchen was a great experience and the service was top notch. My boyfriend (a very picky eater) ordered a wood-fired pizza and said it was better than the wood-fired we had in Italy. (Being a picky eater, he is an EXPERT in pizza!) I ordered the pork chop and pork belly, that was SO buttery and SO delicious I could have eaten it for my first dinner, second dinner and third dinner. Which brings me to dessert: the chocolate terrine was remarkable. My boyfriend doesn't care for chocolate, and he ate MORE than his half of our dessert. If that's not saying something, I don't know what is. This is a win-win for couples/friends that are picky eaters and foodies. Well done, Prescott's Provisions. We'll be back!

It was Restaurant Week so I was not expecting much, however, it was great. We sat at the bar for a drink and then on the outside patio with heaters. The service was good (Rebecca) our waitress and food was good quality. Had salmon which was very flavorful and the pork chop was good too.

Food great. Salmon cooked exactly how we love it. Brussels sprouts were excellent. Waiter was efficient and personable, service was top shelf. However noise level was difficult to overcome, hard to have a conversation. Overall a good value on Restaurant Week.

This was our second visit, the food was great as usual but our server Rachel was rude. I don't normally complain ever but any question we asked her seemed like an annoyance. Then to top it off she charged our credit card for the wrong amount.

Our bill came to $66 and she took our card and charged $103 that was supposed to be someone else's check. She didn't even apologize and proceeded to charge the correct amount after voiding the $103 charge. So now we have $170 outstanding charges from your restaurant because of a careless error on her part.

ALL of this would have been over looked if she wasn't so cold and rude. The food was amazing, we love coming this but her poor attitude ruined the night.

Only couple in the restaurant who where ordering food. We ordered an appetizer and was told by the waitress that the chef our dinner choice at the same time so he could keep up with orders. We refused and said look around we are the only ones eating. Everyone else were just having cocktails at the bar. We ate and paid for our appetizer and elsewhere for our dinner.

Food and service were excellent.
However the noise level in the main dining area was extremely loud!
Hard to have conversation.

Would definitely come back... May try the patio before it closes for the winter.

Our dining experience was fantastic on every point-from the moment we checked in, immediately received fresh water, waitress promptly came to table, drinks came ASAP and our food was delivered at just the right time-every bite was delicious. A special touch at end of dinner-French Pressed Coffee-awesome. The owner even stopped by our table to chat. Kudos to the entire staff at Prescott's Provisions. Their Buffalo News Gusto Rating of 10 is well deserved.

I rarely write reviews about my dining experiences but this had to be shared. This is now one of my favorite restaurants in Buffalo. From the drinks to the service to the food, everything was perfect. We had the fried cauliflower & brussel sprouts to start and both were good size portions and delicious. I had the burrata and added tomatoes (highly recommend) and it was the most flavorful burrata. The gem salad reminded me of a cesar but without the think cream and a little more on the citrus side. For our dinner we had the mushroom pizza, salmon, monkfish & scallops. All of which were very tasty and good sizes. As for the drinks we had the Siesta which was a little on the tart side but very refreshing and the southside with vodka which was awesome. Our server Johnny also mentioned they make a mean old fashioned... and he was very right. it was the best old fashioned I've had. Overall it was a truly great experience and we will definitely be back!

The service and food were both excellent. But it was quite loud, especially when chairs were being moved on the floor. I’d go back but I’d try to hit a quieter time.

The food was very good and presented nicely. We had a very nice and efficient server. We sat on the patio and it was quite noisy. The one negative that I hear frequently, and I agree with, is that the menu is too limited.

I absolutely love this newer gem on the canal. The food is incredible and the drink menu is superb. Service has always been great as well. Great for work cocktails, first date, 100th date, or anything in between. (Btw the crispy Brussels sprouts are TO DIE FOR!)

Food delicious but pricy. Service excellent and very nicely decorated inside. Thanks Only thing I would add is to get some sweet wine such as Moscato or Zinfandel in your bar choices. Not everyone is a fan of dry wines!

Very much enjoyed our "date night" dinner at Prescott's ~ love the covered outdoor patio with water view! Food is delicious & presentation excellent ~ was informed the menu will have seasonal changes ~ would def return to try new items!
Owners Don & Laurie Benoit have nailed it & certainly have the gift of hospitality/hostessing, we were greeted & welcomed by a warm & friendly staff from start to finish! Great Job!!!

Our drinks were good, our food was AMAZING, our poor server though! Our server could not remember who had ordered or who hadn't for both drinks and dinner and followed that up by not remembering who had ordered what! A small hiccup in an otherwise wonderful experience.

Lovely venue on a glorious summer day. Very interesting and delicious menu. The popovers were sublime, hubby loved the deviled eggs, and just get the brussel sprouts-you won't regret it. They are scrumptious. Our server was very well informed of the menu items and very sweet. Can't wait to go back.
