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!

Food was very good, but too expensive. The place was packed and it was too loud to hear my wife speak. The restaurant is very nice and so was the staff.

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!!!

Enjoyed 1 of 5 items we ordered. Barely warm turnovers, undercooked, clumpy tempura, average food at best. Was hopeful for so much more.

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.

1. Would appreciate a full sized salad option.
2. White painted cinder block? Fake plants?
3. The food was ridiculously good!

Ambience was generally excellent but our table offered a view of the wall and corner next to the cash register. The pizza was good but the charred avocado appetizer was extremely small, expensive and not good at all.

I’d like to come back and not sit by the kitchen because the music was so loud we could barely hear each other. Add that to a place that doesn’t have great acoustics and it was a downer. We had to yell to talk. I’m all for this type of restaurant but I don’t want to yell to the people I’m with. Also, the pork chops were tough. Also, expected better on that end.

My companion and I enjoyed dinner on the patio and everything was exceptional. The salmon was cooked exactly as requested and the scallops were perfect. Rebecca, our server, was attentive without being obtrusive. Chelsea and Lauren provided an added touch to make the occasion even
more special.

The sounds level on the patio enabled quiet, enjoyable conversation.

We had a wonderful experience and will be back!

Have been several times since their opening.
ALWAYS recommend this luciousness.
Menu is always intriguing. . . . Watching the bartenders prepare drinks - which change regularly- is interesting . . . Staff is friendly, efficient, & knowlegeable of all the items offered.

Our friends told us to to give PP a try so we did. This place is a real gem! Great outdoor seating with a view of the canal, food was amazing, owner is charming, service was perfect and the prices are very reasonable!

Get there now and try the outdoor seating before the weather turns, you won’t be disappointed ... guaranteed !

3rd time here and it never disappoints. Our server was attentive, but not overbearing. The lovely owner came by twice and chatted with us and to me, that says nothing but good things about a restaurant! We ordered the charcuterie board which was good - I would've preferred some cheese rather than the pork pate but that is just my opinion... we had the baby gem lettuce which was delicious. So fresh~. The green beans were yummy too~ just the right crispiness in a delicious yogurt based sauce. The heirloom tomatoes with the mozzarella mousse- yum! The patio is fabulous and it's pretty on the inside too. I'll be back!
