Visited here for a wedding. They did a great job. Staff was very friendly and things moved along flawlessly. Food was great and the views of the water made it very pleasant and great pictures.

While the food may have tasted good, it was very slow like 45 minutes between each course, and food was cold for alomst 150 people. Servers could nit keep up, our table never got cleaned up until 11pm, and i... More

We ate here this past week as a party of 7. Three children, 4 adults. I made reservations and asked for a patio table. Was told they were first come first serve so we had to sit inside. Our waitress gave the beer selection and then came back to tell us they were out of most of them. She then... More

Be prepared to use the valet service if you pull into the parking lot adjacent to the restaurant. If you wish to self-park, you must go to a more remote parking lot and walk to the restaurant. We dined on a busy night with several private parties going on in other areas of the building, so traffic (both vehicle and... More

We've been to Templeton Landing twice this year. The first time, it was pouring rain, so we had to eat inside. This time the weather was perfect. The food is good, if not gourmet quality, and the service is fine.

First let me say the staff was super..in every way...from valet parking to the young man cleaning the reception area when we were leaving. We sat inside...it was 87 degrees out so we wanted AC. My husband and I noticed how the area we were in looked like a diner...not what I was expecting. The web site and pictures they... More

This will be our last visit. The food is average to tasteless, and very expensive. But they could charge more if the food was good, as the view is nice. The bathroom was filthy and one sink wasn't working and one paper towel dispenser was upside down. The bartender was standing on the bar to adjust the tv. Food could... More

This place is on the waterfront in Buffalo. We attended a high school reunion here. The room was very comfortable and part of the outdoor patio was set aside for our group. The staff was cordial and attentive but not intrusive. The buffet food was very good. I honestly cannot attest to the rest of the restaurant as we merely... More
