Diner Reviews
  • "We were looking for a place that offered both vegetarian and meat fare. We also did not want a restaurant that was also a bar scene where you had to yell over the table to be heard. Our waitress was both cheerful and attentive. The menu had a very good selection of both meat and vegetarian items. Our meals, from start to finish, were great. We left quite satisfied and looking forward to our next visit."

  • "Fantastic food and service as usual!! Great specials and I love finding a place that has Hendrick's Gin. Makes the best Martini, but is expensive."

  • "Beautiful dining room. Love the brick and the paintings. I went with a large group close to closing on Friday night and we were treated well, wine was great. Food was above par, and even though we had them open later than usual they were very kind and attentive. Def coming back for a date night."

  • "3 people in our party.I Ordered from the Gluten-free menu. Got the maple burbon wild salmon- it was perfectly done & delicious! Hubby got flat iron steak- another win. Son got lobster with ravioli- said it was the best he ever had. Good wine & beer also! Love the exclusive GF menu! Prices were pretty typical for a decent restaurant. Will definitely go back!"

  • "We love going to Edibles. The food is amazing and the staff is so friendly. Eating inside can be a little cramped for space, but if you can get a seat outside on University Ave it is an amazing time for a big group of people. If you have not been here yet - this is a must go!"

  • "Four of us had wonderful meals at Edibles on a Friday evening. When we entered the restaurant at 6:30 pm, there were only a couple of tables occupied. and when we left two hours later the dining room was full. Our server (Rory) was excellent and very responsive to our questions and needs, and helped us by making several suggestions. Our dietary needs were completely addressed. We look forward to enjoying another meal at Edibles soon."

  • "What a wonderful evening, a group of nine had at Edibles on Saturday. Made reservations online received an email confirmation, Super easy. I chose this place for variety of menu. First time at Edibles, arrived at 7:30 after an art opening. Walked in and felt like I was in New Orleans or Brooklyn. Simple but very nice decor. Crowded but we all noted how it felt like we were the only ones there, we did not feel like the next table was in your conversation. Wine list was good.The food was excellent.Service was also wonderful. We had 9 people and one waitress Ariane, but felt we had her full attention and timing of food and drinks was perfect. She was knowledgeable on both food and drinks Really made the entire meal feel intimate and special."

  • "we chose to sit outside so the ambience was what University Ave had to offer. Waitress was good, knew the wine list and didn't interrupt our conversation. My roasted brussel sprouts were swimming in oil, beet salad was small. Ambivalent about whether I would recommend to a friend, forced to say "yes" or "no" and I would rather say "maybe"."

  • "On walking in, we were greeted by the smell of backed up dishwasher?. Caesar salad was poor; overdressed, old lettuce, and unremarkable flavor. Oil used for tater tots was old. Scallops I ordered had turned and were sent back. I invite anyone thinking about going to this place to have a look at the exhaust fans coming out of the kitchen around back. Service (host and server) was excellent, and server was professional in her handling of the unacceptable food."

  • "We had a delicious dinner outside. The food was great, ambiance wonderful. Just enough activity on the street to be interesting, but not a constant din of noise. Everyone in the group said they would be back soon!"

  • "My daughter was visiting from Phoenix so we made our reservation. I have been to Edibles several times. I'm happy they can cater to vegetarians with our own menu selections. We were on time but the hostess said we would have to wait which was fine but the dinning room was only half full. We had cocktails at the bar but after almost 15 minutes, I wondered what the delay was. We waited at our table for a while also before we were acknowledged. The server was "over tabled" but they changed servers when they realized this. The vegetarian "sampler" was great although I am still trying to figure out why tatter tots are on there. Our entrees were delicious. Coffee and the bread pudding were a great finish."

  • "Recently took a friend to Edibles for lunch on the recommendation of another friend. Ordered borscht for the soup. Was disappointed that it was not served cold as the soup usually is. Also, it did not have any flavor. Selected the chicken and asparagus salad which was very good. Other than the soup, the meal was very nice."

  • "Edibles is one of our go-to places for casual dining but with great food & service. We always enjoy the ambiance no matter the season. Outdoor dining with a great street scene or indoor during all seasons. The food is always well presented and adventurous. Mussels appetizer, pork chop and mahi mahi could have been ordinary but we're definitely not. Unfortunately no appetite left for dessert."

  • "Wanted to try something different for a girls night out dinner...food was very good, especially the warm bread. Service was VERY slow. Was quite some time before we were even given water. Had to ask for more bread. Long wait for our drinks and the food. When my friend's side did not come with her dinner they said it could be ready shortly but she just canceled it because she knew it probably wouldn't come until we were done with our meal. I guess we would have been more uunderstanding of all the waiting if it had been busy, but it wasn't. I would give them another try, as it just could have been an off night or short staff. Everyone was friendly, just not attentive to the needs of the table when we were low or out of something."

  • "We were celebrating a college graduation and as we looked around the restaurant we knew we had picked the right place. We had a large party but felt very taken care of (Thanks, Bryant!) our waiter was knowledgeable, kind, and even offered to take our group's picture to mark the moment. The tasty cocktails and delicious food were perfect! A nice variety of appetizers, entrees, and desserts. The graduate and the rest of us were very pleased. If we ever find ourselves in Rochester again we'll definitely be back and we will definitely recommend it to people that we know that travel to the area. Thanks for a great experience!!"

  • "I dined there with my girlfriend on Friday May 16th. We had the steak and lobster raviolis along with the shrimp appetizer. Everything was prepared delicious and the server was excellent. "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Having been to this restaurant about 5 times now, I can say they are consistent. The food (entrees) are average to below average, especially given the price. The desserts are good and presentation of dessert is nice. It is an OK spot with easy access for friends we meet with often, but I would not recommend this to anyone who is accustomed to fine dining and who is looking for a memorable meal and evening out. Our server was good--attentive, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Ambiance is nice but it can get noisy here when the restaurant is busy which makes conversation turn to a shouting match."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "You can't go wrong at Edibles. From the fantastic and flavorful appetizers to the thoughtful savory entrees, I could eat there for dinner every night and never get bored. Definitely recommend making this your new favorite restaurant in Rochester."

  • "My sister and I dined outside at edibles early during the week before a 7pm play at auditorium theatre. We shared the tator tots, crab salad and chicken pancetta pizza. The service was quick and it was nice to be outside. The pizza had too much gorgonzola for our liking so we removed most of it. Nice easy meal and I would be back again."

  • "On our 1-night visit to Rochester, Edibles was a highlight. Great location. Wonderful, friendly staff. Good food, generous portions, and very amenable to adjusting dishes for personal preferences. We will definitely return. (Loved the bread pudding.)"

  • "Online reservation process was easy. Drinks were very good, but had to settle bill before dining. Two specials we saw online and were interested in were not available (at 6:00 p.m.). Two dinners we ordered were excellent; but two (the pork chop special) were less than satisfactory. Wait staff service was excellent. Bar area was comfortable, but dining room was very hot and noisy....not conducive to conversing or lingering for dessert. "

  • "We have dined at Edibles on multiple occasions. We always have a good experience, overall, but there is always a little something missing. This time, it was several menu items. Namely all steak and pork dishes on the menu. We were told they were "transitioning" to a summer menu and, therefore, were not ordering meat that they were out of. At least 4 entrees listed on the menu were not available and the remaining options were very limited. The menus are paper inside a plastic sleeve. How difficult would it be to update and print a new menu while working through this "transition?" Don't get me wrong, the service was wonderful, the food we did order was delicious and the ambiance is very nice. We'll be back, but hope this doesn't happen again."

  • "Wonderful food, service, and ambiance. A little noisy, although I understand there is not much to do about it --fortunately you guys do not have a TV in the room!. Would have appreciated a little cupcake and candle for the birthday girl --for free. In the end, we paid a $200 bill so what is a little cupcake? "

  • "I took my wife here for her birthday and my family enjoyed the whole experience. The service was excellent, the food even more so. It is a little pricey; we took our teenagers because of the occasion, but my wife and I would probably return without them. That said, I do not mind the cost if the food is good, and it was excellent. Great atmosphere for couples or a small adult group gathering."

  • "Edibles is a small restaurant in an old brick building. The building has been turned into a fabulous urban dining experience. From the service to the food, Edibles was 5 star all around. Reservations are definitely recommended. It was kind of loud when we went, but that was during a Saturday dinner rush with a couple large groups."

  • "Just, "yum": Wedge salad (great pungent bleu cheese dressing); crab cakes (the only thing we weren't totally enamored with - not all lump); lobster ravioli (fresh hunks of lobster), flat iron steak (one of the best I've had), succulent chicken with really yummy couscous (a substitution for potatoes, which I don't like); Kobe beef meatloaf with an egg in the center (meatloaf's still meatloaf, no matter how grand); the phyllo-wrapped pear dessert (so much better than it sounded), and the mixed nut caramel tart dessert (be still my heart.) - both desserts came with some of the best vanilla ice cream I've had-I wish I had asked what brand it was. Portions were generous, and the homemade sourdough bread with whipped butter was delish."
