Went there with my fiancee. Waitress was as charming as a hemorrhoid. Stuffed mushrooms were a greasy sausage mess, thankfully, they only gave us four of them for seven bucks. Clams casino, well, so terrible that I was embarrassed for them, would have been over priced even at a dollar a dozen. Beef on Weck, a soggy tasteless sandwich, ummmm, this is Buffalo, at least get that one right!!!! Bus Boy was very pleasant, banana cream pie was good, overall, a rate them a 1.5 out of 100,000. Avoid it at all cost.
DONT CARE ABOUT CUSTOMER RESTAURANT.
Went there with 7 family members, 4 from out of state.
Started out with drinks and apps. Had the portobello fries and cajun fried oysters which were excellent as usual.
Manhattan clam chowder very good.
The entrees included roast beef with gravy, 4 fish fries, potato pancakes.
One member of my party requested a blackend cajun fish fry which is not on the menu, waitress said they could do this with a smile.
An evening special was roast duck with ginger glazed sweet potatos.
7 of the entrees arrived about the same time, that was when I was informed that the cook was new and forgot to prepare the duck but it was being made now.
When my duck finally arrived, all my dinner companions were finished with their meals so I sent my dinner back.
A manager came and apologised and asked if I wanted something else. By then of course, it was way to late to have anything different let alone eat it while everyone else watched so I said no.
I asked for compensation for this inconvenience and they 'graciously' didnt charge me for the duck.
When I again asked for the manager, a blond woman came. She informed me that I inconvenienced the restaurant because now they are 'stuck with it' meaning the duck of course. Upon further complaint she reluctantly said that we could have 2 desserts compd.
Gee, 2 desserts, 8 people...hmmmm.
When I paid the bill to the blond 'manager' I told her she could pay the tip for the waitress, she said 'fine' and LAUGHED. When I told her that the restaurant was losing a long time customer she again said 'fine' and LAUGHED AGAIN.
I feel terrible that I didnt tip the waitress being that it wasnt her fault but I was that upset at the attitude of the 'manager'.
Over the years I have taken family, friends, dates and business associates to enjoy the good service, good food and the great view of the creek that is Creekview.
Now I NEVER complain about anything when I go out to eat (I used to work in a restaurant and I know how crazy some people can get) but my first ( and only) dining experience at Creekview was one of absolute horror. I went to dinner with two girlfriends and right off the bat, the waitress was snotty and preoccupied (it was not even busy so you can't blame it on that!). It took her three different trips to finally bring our waters. Our salads were were good, but I had to borrow a fork from another table because our *lovely* waitress never brought absent silverware that I requested. When my pasta came, it was absent the chicken that I had ordered in. To my surprise a measly 20 minutes later, my chicken arrived on a plate, raw as raw could be. Oh and did I mention that when the waitress boxed my pasta (minus the bleeding red chicken), she used her BARE HANDS to scoop in noodles that had fallen over the side of the container!!!!!!!!!! We requested to speak to a manger and she completely blew us off because we are all 20-something females and just assumed we were just looking for a free meal (we didn't get one, nor did we get a sincere apology). In fact, when we walked out the door, the waitress and her manager snickered. I don't know who is running that place but he/she needs to hire competent wait staff and managers with a little thing called class.
Creekview--good dining in the heart of Williamsville.
My dining partner and I ate lunch here in February. We had a table by the window of the enclosed porch and it was lovely to be right next to Ellicott Creek, even in winter. Tables and cutlery were clean. Our food was great. My partner had fish (in a cracker batter), which was fresh and well-prepared. I enjoyed the French onion soup, which was covered with gooey, yummy cheese and a spinach salad, which was OK. Service was good. Prices are slightly high. My partner insists it was good and he frequently has suggested that we return and try dinner..
Make your first visit to Creekview on a nice summer day and make sure you get a table on the patio, which overlooks Ellicott Creek and is located in the heart of Historic Williamsville. It is very relaxing. Then order an appetizer, a salad and an entree. As an entree, I recommend a chicken pasta dish, though just about anything you order will be excellent. After you receive the bill for this reasonably priced meal, go across the street to Jenny's for ice cream and then take a stroll through Glen Park to finish the ful'filling' night.
