Encore is located in the heart of Buffalo’s theater district, where it is surrounded by Shea’s theater and the hip downtown area.  This two story building provides an ambiance for all seasons, with five fireplaces throughout the restaurant, hardwood floors, rustic brick walls and our spacious outside patio that can accommodate over 150 people.

Whether you are out for a casual dinner, a quick bite before a show or an evening of fine dining the menu at Encore is diverse to suit every palate.  Depending on your mood, guests can enjoy intimate dining in our custom private booth area, our main dining room upstairs or our custom sushi station where guests can order from anywhere in or outside the building.  There is no need to leave after dinner, Encore delivers a lively nightlife where you can listen to great music and partake in the many events we host. We also book parties of any size we can accommodate.  Contact the restaurant for details specific to your party size and budget.
