I think the prime factor affecting diners visits to this institution is the mere fact that it is an institution. They work hard to preserve an image that has been carefully cultivated to be a Steak/Beef orientated restaurant with a history.
The food is non-exceptional and mundane although an attempt is made at flourishes like the "roaming" carving cart and some table-side presentation - although the tables are to close together to make this very practical and one views the theater from a distance. We almost viewed it on our laps as the waitress spilled a tray of fixings.
If you are in the area and don't mind spending $40 - 50 per person on the theater and ordinary food, by all means go.

My husband and I went there and I was less than impressed. The steak was good, but my sides were not that great. My carrots were cold. It is by no means a cool, hip place to go. My husband was pleased with his prime rib, though.

On a visit to Buffalo, a friend of a friend of a friend recommended the place for prime rib and steaks. We got to the place late, and almost left, when the hostess/greeter spent about five minutes while we stood in front of her, taking a piece of the menu out of each menu at her hostess station. The activity made a terrible racket, and seemed unprofessional, as well as unwelcoming. We waited in that position about ten minutes for a table. During the performance by the hostess, we both wanted to leave but decided to stay because it was late and there were few choices out here in the wilds of upstate New York.
The waitress was very friendly, and we would have thought of her as perfect had she not disappeared aftet dinners were served. Decent soup, crab and lobster bisque, good but not great quality. Interesting in that the seafood collection was placed in the bowl first and then the liquid poured over it.
The restaurant specializes in prime rib, and promises that your choice will be carved tableside. We ordered ours rare; our companion got the prime rib oscar, with crab and lobster meat, asparagus and bearnaise sauce. A perfectly acceptable entree, though the bearnaise did not taste fresh made; it had that commercial flavor and texture that left us craving the real real thing.
A young man approached pushing a table with a hunk of prime rib; the server announced that our rib was being sliced. It did turn out to be a huge slice for the price, and we are being picky, but it was not rare as ordered, but medium rare. This is a prime rib speciality house and the rib should be served as ordered. What bothered us most is that the young man carved the rib quickly with no explanation, no flourish, no personality, and carved it far enough away in the darkened dining room so that we could not see or care about the fact that it was carved tableside. Why bother? The rib was ok, a little dry and somewhat flavorless. The rib is promised as choice or better grade. It was definitely choice and not a better grade. The server could have helped us by returning to provide more au jus but disappeared. We decided against dessert. On a scale of one to ten, a weak six, or a strong five.

I'd been waiting for a while to come to the Red Osier after hearing so many great things about it. I'm not a steak eater, but I thought if they had great steak, they'd have other great food, too. I thought the food was good but not spectacular like I had heard. My husband was not pleased with his steak. Other people in our party were pleased, though. We had our young son with us and didn't feel out of place, so that was a plus. It was good, but I expected a much better experience than we had.

And the first time we ate there, I loved it, as did my hubby. We relaxed in the candlelight, we enjoyed our steaks, cooked to perfection (medium-rare for me, medium-well for him), the salads were excellent, the soup was excellent, the appetizers were excellent, the service world class.
So, that being said, we decided to surprise hubby with a Father's Day Dinner at the Red Oiser this past year. WOW! What a difference a couple of years make! The place was packed, wall to wall people, and out table was shoved in a corner and we practically ate dinner with another family! The food was mediocre, at best, and not up to the Red Oiser's previous standards. The service was slow, lackluster and rushed when it was there. How is it possible to be slow AND rushed? They took 20 minutes to come to our table to take our order, then another 45 mintues to bring our food, then 10 minutes into our dinner, they brought us the check! WHOA!
Maybe it was because it was Father's Day, I don't know, but we haven't been back since.

Only 5 miles from our residence, we've dined at the Red Osier over 100
times in 11 years. Lately, it has been so busy that reservations have maxed
out capacity 2 weeks in advance. You must call for reservations. Menu has
change twice over the past decade, and quality is now back up to where it was
5-10 years ago. Great bar, great service, huge menu, and delectable beef choices make
this one of Genesee County's best destinations.
