"We've always considered the Rue for special romantic occasions. This time was just a date night.
My wife and I love trying new restaurants but the Rue is a long-standing favorite and we had not been in a while. 4.9 stars in our book only and I emphasize only because we prefer Cabs and the Rue, being French, serves exclusively French wines. (Which is only apropos!)

"This wonderful restaurant is a Buffalo staple. Excellent food and service, always. The interior could use updating. The caned chairs are not very comfortable and snagged my wife's clothing. Portions are perfect and the presentation has eye appeal."

""The Rue" is still the best of the best restaurants in Buffalo. Never fails to be completely unique and a rare experience. This place makes its patrons feel as though they've been transported to restaurant heaven for a personal meeting with the guy God left in charge, Cory Kley, the owner and chef - along with one of the 2 or 3 best bar tenders in this city, Gregory. No one makes cocktails quite like he does."

"Had a nine o'clock reservation. Not seated until almost ten thirty. Offered drinks, but not an hors d'oeuvre. Not approached with any apology, Unacceptable. Servers were quite good when we were finally seated."

"This has been our favorite restaurant for decades. Owner and Chef Corey Kley has brought his A-game and the Rue is the closest thing to eating in Paris that we have found. He has also brought true Chef's tasting menus to Buffalo and they are magnificent. We are still savoring the memory of his Roquefort flan with our amazing cheese course. Corey assisted with our wine selections and the pairings were outstanding. We always feel welcome and at home there. Give yourself a treat and have a drink at the bar. Greg is an inspired mixologist."

"Brought my wife for her birthday and decided to do the "Oui Chef" tasting for two. We received five courses of very small portions for $200. The flavors were very good but compared to the portions of the entrees going to the tables around us, I would not recommend the tasting to anyone."

"Haven't been to the Rue Franklin in ages. Happy to find, for the most part, the fine dining experience still intact. The food was well prepared, if sometimes a bit hit-or-miss. A Lyonnaise salad featured leaf lettuce rather than the expected frisee, and the poached egg topper was overcooked. A lovely rare duck fillet was listed to be accompanied by Swiss chard---a promising pairing that disappointed when the chard arrived processed and pressed into two unappetizing (and tiny) cubes. Monkfish was much better---moist and accompanied by a delicious orange cream sauce. Very tasty house pork pate. Only a few wines available by the glass; but a good list of bottles (although I don't recall seeing any half-bottles). Service was a bit haphazard---servers shouldn't need to ask who gets what and diners shouldn't have to ask for bread or wait so long for it. The wait staff were friendly, though, and helpful. Quite tasty desserts. If not the best-ever French dining experience, certainly a very pleasant one."

"A return visit to a wonderful piece of history, and scrumptious food, too. The bartender was knowledgeable and friendly, and the wait staff was courteous, efficient, and unobtrusive, allowing me to focus on the autumn vegetable salad and the potato-encrusted salmon I ordered. We enjoyed a leisurely meal, enhanced by the atmosphere of the restaurant."

"Rue Franklin has always been a Buffalo Institution. Even with a new chef and menu, they haven't lost a step. Elegant French restaurant, excellent food, wonderful service."

"This is the first time we tried the Oui Chef tasting menu. We had no idea what we were getting. Even the wait staff didn't know. We had this with the wine pairings and it was truly one of the best meals (among many best meals) we have ever had there. We had waygu beef carpaccio, cartelized foie gras, perfectly grilled scallop, venison, a soup made with duck confit.....all small portions exquisitely prepared. The outstanding pairing was the foie gras with Cadillac....rather like a sauterne."

"Love the ambiance of sitting in the back patio room. There was a very nice view of outdoor seating if the weather was better. Very quant and you felt like you were somewhere other than Buffalo. Food was prepared exquisitely and staff was very attentive to details. If it is your first time there I suggest the 3 course menu as it is a bit pricey to order an appetizer, entree, and dessert a la carte as my husband did. We both had fish entrees."

"The food is very good. Portion sizes are small (but "normal!"...not the super-sized many WNYers are used to). Dessert is to be savored! The service is really tremendous, making this a perfect special occasion restaurant."
