Went here for our anniversary. We had a gift certificate, and it was highly recommended. I can't believe we have never been here before! Small, cozy and romantic with great food and wonderful background music which was played at a perfect volume. We both ordered veal scallopini which was delicious, tender and flavorful and served with roasted potatoes and asparagus--... More

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

Went here for a late night dinner with my husband based on recommendations from a coworker. We were not disappointed! This was a happening late night local place but very romantic at the same time. 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.

Great food and atmosphere. Patio is very nice for dining. Service was a little slow but if you are not in a rush... sit and enjoy.

Nice place! On a back lane downtown Buffalo, upscale crowd, friendly & fast service, great food. Upon entry, long bar with friendly business crowd. Dining area slightly separated and comfortable.

Four of us went to Mother's to celebrate a birthday. The food was good but the service left much to be desired. Our waiter seemed to be annoyed that he had to wait on our table. He had absolutely no personality - he didn't even crack a smile. (By the way, we were a very courteous and polite foursome.) We... More
