Have been coming here for years. Definitely one of the best local restaurants in Buffalo. I always am down for some chefs sauce. Would recommend the spaghetti parm, or chicken parm.

Besides the best part they have chicken livers. They are served with mushrooms. This makes a great addition to any meal served. The service has always been excellent. Prices are very reasonable also.

Finally tried to old Buffalo establishment. Suffice it to say that "I DIDN'T GET IT". The food is to Italian as chop soy is to Chinese. This is strictly "heavy on the sauce" "I"talian fare. If that's what you like, go for it. If, however, you like your Italian food to be Italian then go somewhere else.

Great food, large portions so if you aren't a big eater be sure to get a small portion unless you want to take some home with you. We had stuffed shells with meat sauce and baked parmesan - to die for!!

Having dinner with your older son after they get married and have kids is a treat in itself. But Chef's just makes it even better. If you live in Buffalo it's hard not to have eaten there at least once but it never gets old. Even though it is large and crowded you feel like it's a family get together.... More

Atmosphere & service were awesome. My Chicken Parm was so good but the portion was so big, had to take some home! I highly recommend Chefs for dinner/lunch whatever!
