Great looking spot in the Elmwood Village area of Buffalo. Bright, high-ceilinged interior with a large open bar space up front and a similarly-sized raised dining area toward the back of the restaurant. Menu focuses on charcuterie, sandwiches and mussels with a few other things as well. Absolutely killer duck-fat cooked french fries. The outsides were perfectly crispy and the insides were soft and creamy. I had a duck-confit rueben that was awesome and my wife and my sister enjoyed their mussels as well. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and the patio seating is a nice bonus. Add in 30 great taps and you’ve got a top notch spot that would be tough to beat for a casual lunch while in Buffalo. The fact that Coles is a short 10 minute walk up the street is an added bonus. I don’t see a whole lot to complain about here.

One of my favorite beer bars i’ve been to so far. Nights / Weekends can get a bit too busy, crowded and noisy, so I try and go earlier and on weekdays. Services ranges from very good to average from my experience, but I give them benefit of the doubt. Beer selection is second to none and always changing and updating. Exciting to see all these beers on tap that you will not see anywhere else around. Food is good to excellent and even if you don’t go there to eat, try their fries that are fried in duck fat and served with super tasty homemade sauces of your choice. Looking forward to riding my bike up during the summer, sitting outside and sipping on some fine Belgian beers with some friends. Only other negative is I can’t afford to go there more often! Buffalo is very fortunate to have such a place though!

I’ve been to all of the owner’s establishments (Coles, Brennans) and Blue Monk is far and away the best, even if it is the smallest. I’ve grown very fond of Belgian brews and you won’t find a better selection of them anywhere without going overseas. I wish we lived a bit closer, but every time we’re in that part of town we make it a point to stop in. They maintain a lively Facebook presence, so it’s easy to keep up with what’s new on tap. But there’s nothing like sitting under that big chalk board, trying to decide... :) Great place!

A world class beer bar in Elmwood Village. The place was packed when we first came here on a Saturday night, but we still managed to snag a two-person table and received excellent, attentive service from a bubbly young lady with black hair. Had the Charcuterie Plate and Stuffed Quail special for dinner, both dishes were phenomenal. Over two nights I sampled Goose Island Sofie, Great Divide Titan IPA, Beer Here Dark Hops, Mikkeller Green Gold, Stone IPA and Ruination. Almost 35 draughts and maybe 75 bottles with a major emphasis on Belgian offerings. Many of the bottled imports that we have access to in Canada - like St. Bernardus Abt 12 and Maredsous 8 - are on tap here. All of the staff are friendly, helpful, and readily able to describe any beer on the menu. The Sunday night bartender was particularly chatty, which we appreciated. Although Blue Monk is a beer geek haven, you could easily bring your non-beer-drinking friends here, as the bar has an approachable party atmosphere on weekends, and my girlfriend had no problem finding good wines and cocktails. Just an all-around great spot - for dinner and conversation (upstairs), a beer tasting, or getting cut at the bar. I will be returning many more times in the future.

Went at a time i thought would be off hour but the place was smaller than I thought... and packed. Two hour wait for a table, so we just decided to have a couple brews. service was decent but they were taking forever to clear tables... probably one of the reasons for a two hour wait. Very nice selection but extremely expensive. Six dollars for Ithaca Flower Power? Decent place but next time I’ll hit Cole’s or Goodbar instead.

Fantastic place. I can’t speak any higher of our server (Shaymaa) then she was the single best server i have ever had in any Brew pub or restaurant ever. She was knowledgeable, friendly and committed to making sure we got what we needed. Blue Monk it was a nifty place with a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere. The selection was *outstanding* both on tap and in bottle. Both my food and my wives lunch was awesome. it was a place i’d be happy to own. The *only* detractor was that the beers we had on tap and bottle were much too cold. They warmed.. so it wasn’t a big deal.

Great selection of beer with knowledge very friendly staff. Terrific ambiance with low lighting two levels and a terrific beer memorabilia on the walls. Food was tasty a tad on the pricey side. Bottle pricing was a tad steep as well 20$ for bitches brew when it can be bought from local retailers for 10$. Taps were fresh tasting and plentiful in selection. Also nice to see rare/hard to find beers on tap. Excellent establishment. Cheers!

Quintessential beer lovers destination. This is one of those places you go to on vacation and say "Man, I wish we had this back home". Luckily for me, it’s in my backyard. The food is unbelievable, the staff for the most part is well educated and able to make suggestions fairly well. This is really a beer lovers paradise. Looking around you will see a plethora of different patrons, tons of different glassware and bartenders that know how to pour a beer.

beautiful looking place, hardwood everywhere. great selection, mostly belgiums and other european beers on tap but i think the selection changes often. would love to go back and try some of those fries cooked in duck fat.

Bar has a great atmosphere, I like the chalk tap list that is constantly updated, I had a pint poured and it was the end of the keg and the bartender noticed, let us know that we should get something else, which was a plus. Very friendly staff, an beer advocate in the buffalo area should take a stop here.
