Delicious salmon and an extensive wine list. If you don't like super quiet restaurants where everyone can hear you then come to Mother's. Nice ambience in a cozy brick/stone dining room with s fun bar to one side. In Buffalo's Allen Town Neighbourhood.

I have reserved writing this review for awhile because I believe every business can have a bad night, but I see a pattern and will no longer patronize this business. Service has been lackluster three out of three visits. One of the visits was on a weekday when the restaurant was much slower. On the second visit we had reservations... More

Small, cozy and romantic with great food and wonderful background music which was played at a perfect volume.

Every time I am in Buffalo I try to make it to Mothers for late dinner or drinks, usually both. Mothers served dinner till the wee hours of the morning, I believe like 3am. It is also a place for industry workers to hang after work. If you are in Buffalo this is a must place to go. The spaghetti... More

Candles and fresh flowers on the table. Excellent service and the food was amazing! My husband had the meatloaf and I had scallops over fettuccine.... More

Perhaps the best meal I've had all year! The food was exceptional and the service was flawless. I ordered scallops over pasta and was very pleased. Great texture, flavor, and portion size.
