It's always a special experience when we visit this restaurant. I truly believe they are one of the top 3 restaurants in Western New York. I have no complaints but offer one idea to the owner. In terms of the open kitchen concept. The lighting in the kitchen spills out into the dining room, and ruins the ambiance for the tables closest to the kitchen. Nobody is gonna sit and look into the kitchen when the lighting is that bright/unfiltered. My suggestion is drop lights/pendulum lights for service, and the bright lights after for cleaning/prep. Otherwise, this place is near perfect.

The food and service were awesome. There was a live jazz band that was a little loud, could barely hear my wife talking. Plus the table next to us was a little too close for my liking.

Made a reservation before a show at the Riviera Theatre. The show was at 8 and the earliest reservation we could get was at 7 which understandable considering I made the reservation the day before and other people had the same idea. However, decided to show up earlier to check-in to hang out by the bar and see if we could get a table sooner. Sure enough, they were able to accommodate!

It was nice to see a place buzzing before the show- our server was extremely personable and gave some great recommendations. We started with the brussel sprouts small plate, which was plenty to share between the two of us and the white cheddar popovers which were so yummy! Then I ordered the Gnochetti and my friend ordered the Tagliolini and we were both satisfied with enough to take some home! Overall very good experience and would highly recommend.

As usual, the food was outstanding and the service was excellent (and reasonably quick despite the large crowd). The wine list is proof that it doesn't need to be long to be very good. Our table enjoyed shared small plates of marinated white nectarines and crispy artichokes, and entrees of sea scallops, lamb and a couple of ribeyes, all done perfectly. I wish there was something to be done about the noise level, though, as conversation at a table for four had to be done at a near-shout most of the evening. Clearly the cinderblock walls and high ceilings make this a difficult building acoustically, but a very popular restaurant is going to be noisy on a busy Saturday night regardless.

Food is excellent. Only criticism is the noise level. Acoustics are poor. It’s just too loud! Wouldn’t stop me from returning though. Service was excellent as well.

My husband and I had dinner for Valentine’s Day weekend. There was a special, somewhat limited menu, but our meals were both outstanding. One of the best filet mignons I’ve ever had. A bit noisy for an intimate date, but a fun and lively atmosphere. We will absolutely go back.

AMAZING!! We celebrated our anniversary for the second year in a row. Great menu! We order a ton of apps and then entrees. No judging! I even ordered a second Foie Gras for dessert. #fatkidproblems. We try to eat here anytime we can.

All of our entries were exceptional! The food here is absolutely amazing! The menu continually changes and there were literally 5 items I had trouble deciding between but my choice, a veal chop new to the menu, was wonderful! Others at our table had scallops which were done to perfection and a pasta dish with a light kick and crab meat which was delicious. We started with shrimp cocktail which was very special. All in a fabulous meal!

Where to begin... The restaurant itself is beautiful. Everyone we interacted with was incredibly warm and friendly. In particular our server Rick, who was so helpful through the entire experience and gave great suggestions. Not a single thing we ordered was anything short of fantastic. I cannot wait to come back!

Absolutely loved the culinary experience here! The food was amazing, the service was extremely attentive, the biggest downside is that I couldn't hear the person sitting on the other side of the table most of the time. VERY loud. Overall, still a great evening!

Going to an event in Tonawanda at 7 pm and found Prescott's Provisions on yelp with good reviews, so wanted to try it out. We couldn't have been more pleased with the very tasty dishes, appetizers, entres, and the white cheddar popovers! Oh, and don't forget dessert. Everything was delicious.

The interior was a bit rustic and we thought a mismatch for the quality of the food and the dining room facing the canal was a bit loud.

Will definitely go back

Vince's creativity shines! His blending of tastes and textures is such a surprise, as are his plating presentations. Food quality was fabulous. Cocktails were amazing. Service was great too, and the place is spotless!! The menu is so "not the usual"!!! For so many hard surfaces, the noise level was fine, we could all hear each other over the rather large table.
