So disappointed. Made a reservation for the five of us yesterday to come out for dinner. The menus posted online looked amazing. However, after we were seated, we were informed that the only menu item...s available were a few of the share boards. No flatbread or salad options even. Confusing, because we had a 6 PM *dinner* reservation. Share boards do not equal dinner. Decor and ambience looked amazing. Too bad we couldn't stay, due to the lack of dinner menu options See More

Very disappointed with our first visit. I called at 4:00 on a Friday for a 7:00 reservation. No problem. When we got there, there was no chef to cook dinner, only a cold share plate or cheeses availab...le. They couldn't have told me that 3 hours earlier! And no chef on a Friday night? See More

The ambiance is amazing, I would go back for that alone. The only reason I am not giving five stars is because they were out of quite a lot of menu items. Two wines, the flat bread of the day and some... of the dessert options were unavailable. What I was able to order was phenomenal. The service was good but the waiter seemed a bit uneducated when asked questions about the menu items. I will be going back but it would be nice if enough of everything featured on the already small menu was available See More

The absolute best place for a private party, shower or event! I had my wedding shower here in May and it was perfect! We had the whole place to ourselves and it was a beautiful 75 degrees and sunny ou...tside, so we were able to utilize the patio space too! Everyone gathered around the patio and I opened gifts next to the waterfall. It was the perfect backdrop. They made me a "signature drink" for the party which made it extra special. The staff was super helpful and made sure to check in with me to see if I needed anything. I can't thank Lisa & Dan enough for providing such an amazing place to host my shower. If you are looking for an intimate and beautiful space for an event, I highly recommend looking into Bica e Vinho. Perfection :) See More

Even if you didn't count the atmosphere of this place in a review, Bica e Vihno would score amazing points on food, drink, and service alone. What propels it to a whole other level is the beautiful d...ecor, and quite possibly the best outdoor patio in Western New York. See More

The decor was very nice, location is great. I was excited to go with my daughters. We didn't mind waiting a few minutes for outdoor table, but after 15 minutes and no menu, water or a waiter we start...ed to get up to leave and then a waiter came. As we were leaving we were asked how everything was ! I told him we wouldn't know, weren't given the opportunity to find out. There were 2 waiters and 1 bartender with about 15 customers. Someone could hav at least gave us a menu and said thy were busy and would be back as soon as they could. See More

Such a beautiful location. We did not go expecting a full dinner. The tapas style food was perfect. Everything tasted fresh and wonderful. Again, do not go expecting a full dinner or you may be di...sappointed. See More

Love this place. It's the perfect spot to enjoy a night out, tucked away in such a way that it feels like a sweet escape from the day to day shuffle. Great drinks (coffee and wine and fresh squeezed j...uices, yum!) and staff. Amazing atmosphere. I've yet to try the food but am looking forward to it. Live music also adds another layer of ambiance. Three thumbs up! ��� See More

I think I have found my new favorite place. Such a great environment. Wonder drinks and food. The gift shop has amazing items. I bought two items to display at my up coming wedding.

Everything was absolutely amazing. The restaurant
and service is perfectly run to allow the perfect time for you to appreciate what is most important in life, the little things. Firstly, the decor is ...beautiful and you can tell that so much love and passion went into planning every detail. The service is incredible, I am a stickler for good service and this beautiful restaurant definitively offers exceptional service. I am Portuguese and the food really was nostalgic and brought back such fond memories. Lisa stirred up some melted cheese for us that literally had all of us in food haven.

The flaming chorico, bacalhau melts, shrimp and papadella were phenomenal. We wanted to order everything on the menu. We definitely will be back time and time again. Be sure to order a coffee and a pastel de nata, perfectly and traditionally topped with cinnamon.

We absolutely fell in love with Lisa and Lisa, the owner and our server. It felt like we were home from the moment we sat down and we didn't want to leave. The ambiance is amazing, the food is authentic and curated with such passion and the staff treats you like family. Bica e Vinho is a must try!

I am from Toronto but am in the Buffalo area every other week and this is, hands down, my favourite place, counting down the days for our return visit already...

You can see the love and passion the owners have for this beautiful restaurant. I can't say enough about the wine and how beautiful of a location it is. Perfect to have a drink and enjoy the scenery. ...Everything I've tasted on the menu is delicious. See More

Absolutamente lindo!!! The redesign of this old structure is exquisite! The view of the meandering waterfall is picturesque. All this beauty, while relaxing in high-style, i made even better with a ki...ck-ass Portuguese coffee or wine! The best part is you can shop at one of the hippest places around with so many treasures and finds in Urban Design which is all under the same roof!! Such a gem!! See More

As a real estate agent I need to keep a running list of places to bring friends, clients and refer out-of-town visitors to. Bica e Vinho meets my criteria of providing a relaxing ambiance that is conv...ersationally friendly, has a welcoming staff with "ready to accommodate" service, and a delicious offering of beverage and food/treat.
This past summer I enjoyed iced coffee flavored and garnished with orange & mint, perfect for cooling me down while the staff enthusiastically educated me on Portuguese menu offerings. I chose the Cod salad and it was refreshingly lite for a hot day. It was extremely mild in fish flavor so, you could fully enjoy the other ingredients & was accompanied with a side of bread unlike any I have had and perfect for the dish. I also sampled a variety of meats, cheeses, and olives offered to me by welcoming & generous patrons. I even tried the sardine pate which offers a smooth palatable texture that is strong in flavor and scent. Add a slice of Chorizo sausage if you want to cut the strength of the fish flavor. All samplings were delicious. I had the bartender choose a white Portuguese wine for me to enjoy on the patio overlooking the waterfalls, while the resident Blue Heron wandered the creek. As far as I am concerned, I enjoyed a mini vacation.
As of 10/22/2016 I have been to Bica e Vinho approx. 10 times. Six times I brought guest. The staff and Lisa made me appear like a genius for choosing to bring them there. Last time during a lovely autumn evening there were white faux fur blankets by the outdoor gas fire pit to keep the chill off with. It was luxurious while I enjoyed my white wine with the owner & patrons as welcoming as always.

FAMILY FIRST at Bica e Vinho.... due to a family emergency for our #2 person in our kitchen, we are serving our fabulous charcuterie and share boards ONLY this evening... but still- how could a night be more perfect than to 'linger' on the waterfall patio, listen to our FAVORITE band (Sam Tambe, Jessica Sam and gang) and enjoy a beautiful night with good friends and wines (or house crafted Sangria;)?
