Welcome to Butterwood Sweet & Savory


We are closing Butterwood Sweet & Savory Restaurant temporarily to work on a concept and menu change. The new dining concept will still include an emphasis on our one-of-a-kind desserts. We expect this process to take a few months and we look forward to reintroducing the restaurant, located in the historic Hotel Lafayette, to the Buffalo dining community in spring 2016.
We thank our loyal patrons for their support these past 3 years. All gift certificates, Groupon coupons and Living Social coupons will be honored at our sister restaurant, Brioso by Butterwood, on Main Street in Williamsville. Once the downtown location reopens, we will accept all coupons and gift certificates issued.
The Butterwood Bakery will remain open during this transition and will continue to provide specialty desserts, European style pastries, special occasion and wedding cakes to Buffalo area residents and businesses as it has for the last 15 years. Please call 652-0131 ext 111 or ext 106 to place orders or inquire about wedding cakes.


For more than a decade, Butterwood Desserts has tantalized the palette with distinctive works of dessert art.

Join us 7 days a week for a unique cocktail, decadent dessert, great food and great service. Butterwood Sweet & Savory is a full service fusion restaurant located in the magnificently restored Hotel Lafayette. Butterwood Sweet & Savory focuses on modern cuisine that plays on the use of sweet ingredients in savory and spicy dishes creating a unique flavor profile available nowhere else in Buffalo.

Our small plates, “flying saucers”, feature dishes with international flavors. And, in the tradition of our bakery, the dining room features a classic brick oven producing inventive pizzas made from our own hand crafted pizza dough.
