Very, very noisy restaurant. Food is just fair. Will probably not go back for dinner,
The waitress was fantastic (Amanda). She listened to our requests and delivered as promised. Very low noise level - not sure if I answered the earlier part correctly- however the restaurant was not too crowded.
We took family there that has someone in Roswell. We all had a really great meal and our server was so sweet. We will definitely return. Thank you.
The bar tender was great. So welcoming and enjoyable. Two of us had steak. It was not good. If you go there, choose something else from the menu. Other than that, it was a nice place.
We absolutely loved our first visit to Cabaret! We went with another couple who we always go to dinner with and we all agreed that it was a great choice. Everyone was so nice and the food was delicious!! I have already recommended Cabaret to others.
Waitress was delightful food was wonderful .We go often.
cabaret is the perfect place to dine before a show. the food is excellent an the price are moderate. the hostess and servers are friendly and efficient. the menu always has something new to enjoy along with standard favorites. will dine there many more times.
We had our usual good service and well priced food.
Excellent service all around. Accommodating when we ran late. Upbeat staff and fun atmosphere. Food was excellent as always. Will return many times.
Love this place!! So convenient when leaving Shea's, gorgonzola salad my favorite, but every thing on menu is delicious!
The restaurant was adorable with yummy drinks and great food. We had the roasted garlic platter to start and it was amazing. Would definitely go again.
The server was attentive and made sure we enjoyed our dining experience.
This is my girlfriend and I favorite downtown Buffalo restaurant. We here there on 8/24 for her birthday. The overall experience was great however one of our favorite appetizers was a bit disappointing. We come to cabaret for their clams casino. Something was different about them this time. They were watery and seemed loose. We still ate the entire dozen however there was a noticeable difference in their consistency and texture.
Great menu and generous portions, with a variety of dishes to suit everyone’s tastes. Conveniently located in the theatre district, so make for a great pre-theatre meal or post-theatre drink or nosh. Would definitely go back again!
I luv this place in the city with fantastic drinks and food! A must when seeing a show or enjoy the theatre in general!
My first time at Cabaret before catching a show at the Alleyway. It was a slow night, with various outdoor festivals happening, and the experience couldn't have been better. The restaurant is attractive (lots of hardwood, vintage musical posters), the food was delicious (I got the special--chicken caprese with homemade rice pilaf--everything was fresh and I cleaned my plate) and the service was great. There was only one waitress on, also doubling as bartender, and she was on it (Stacy--you were great!). I will absolutely go back again and again (and it's so conveniently located to Shea's, etc.). Highly recommend!
The chicken Caesar salad was only fair. Chicken pieces appeared to be "boiled," not roasted or broiled. Taste was bland. Could have used a larger variety of ingredients.
Great food and good service. I have down here many times and it is consistently good. Food is of the utmost of the quality.
We went there before a show at the Shea theater. We were served very quickly. The server knew we along with everyone else in the restaurant were going to a show, there were three shows that night in downtown Buffalo. The service was excellent. The food was very good and a good value. They serve big portions. Highly recommend reservations! Casual atmosphere. After dinner the walk to the theater took two minutes. We would eat there again.
Everything was fabulous. Our server was very accommodating in making sure special requests were taken care of. Food was beautifully presented, delicious and hot! Always come away more than satisfied.
We arrived and almost didnt stay because it was very slow business wise. I had read reviews prior to going that were great. We were very glad we decided to stay and eat. We both had the chicken francais. My wife due to diet restrictions ordered hers grilled not sauteed. Food came out as ordered and was delish. Service was good, place was clean . No regrets.
Wonderful place to grab a bite before a show. Food is fantastic, but a bit over priced. Waitstaff is attentive. Nicely decorated and very clean. A bit noisy, but overall, excellent!
The food was amazing! They knew we were going to a show. The food came very quickly!
Great atmosphere. Very good service, delicious food.
Go all the time before Shea’s and usually order same thing. The chicken Gorgonzola tasted like it was heated in a microwave with the rice pilaf as it was steaming hot but rubbery. Not like usual tenderness. It was a bit petrified
I can't believe I haven't been to this underrated gem till now! Was looking for a last-minute spot to get dinner before a show at the Sheas 710 Theatre. Everything was booked up, thankfully there was an open spot at Cabaret. Service was impeccable, very friendly waitress. Loved the theatre-themed decor. The only issue is that it was loud. The menu was filled with options for everyone. They were very cognizant of the showtimes, and made sure to get us finished up with ample time to get the show. The dishes we got were spaghetti and meatballs, pasta with broccoli, and an out of this world dip and garlic crostini platter. This is a new favorite!
Excellent food and a charming waitress! Highly recommend it to others!!
Great good and great ambience. Just make sure to give yourself plenty of time if heading here before a show. It was quite noisy where it wasn’t always easy to hear the conversation at the table, but we all still really enjoyed the restaurant and will be back again.
Music at front of house was absurdly loud and didn't fit the ambiance. Not sure if this is a normal occurrence, but thought Cabaret were in the middle of an identity crisis. Felt like I was at a dive bar on Allen, awaiting a concert.
For reference, I'm 30 years old, I enjoy loud loud music as much as anyone. But this was not the situation I expected to walk into for an evening meal. Dinner conversation wasn't ideal
All that said, food and service we're great.
Sat on the patio, fast service, excellent food! Can't wait to go back
Can't beat it for closeness to Sheas. Food was very good, proper portion sizes (not too much). Quite noisy, but then it was theater night.
The food and service was very good. It was extremely noisy. We could barely hear our waitress.
Have been to Cabaret several times and have always had a good meal. Their martinis are a little pricey, but they're "themed" so I get why.
Always have great service and enjoy the meals.
Most recently I had the Jerk Mahi special, it was a little dry. The crab bisque, however, was excellent!
What a great place for dinner!! The food was wonderful, I had clams casino and Mahi Mahi. The clams were delicious!!! The Mahi was cooked perfectly and served over a delicious rice pilaf. The noise level was not bad at all, though they were extremely busy when we were there. Our waitress was so nice, and service was great! I would highly recommend this place for dinner!!
Waitress was very nice but seemed a tad inexperienced. We asked for separate checks but she mixed up the 2 couples. A personal preference: any time we thanked her for anything she would respond, "No problem. " A "your welcome" or "my pleasure" would have been more appropriate. Again, personal preference. Very nice restaurant. We would return
Great food for the price and received in a timely manner. Only complaint was the noise level. Very loud . May be because it is an older building and not much insulation to lower sound level
The meals were acceptable. Sound in restaurant was very loud. I would like to see more lighting. I dont care to sit at a dark table.
Cabaret was amazing! The service was great! Staff was friendly and food was phenomenal
Server forgot our salads. Did not bother to compensate for it. seemed as if he was in a rush to leave. both steaks were overcooked but was going to a show and did not have time to remake. steak temps should be reviewed and noticed by both kitchen staff and food runner.
Delicious food, great atmosphere and the food came quick since we were going to sheas for a show.
