I had the pleasure of being greeted by Mario and his two sons, who were just outside the restaurant as I entered. My entree was delicious and the server graciously substituted mashed potatoes for pasta upon my request. Anthony Daniele came to table to check whether the meal was to my liking. A thoroughly pleasant dining experience.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMI'll Be Back!Our first visit to Mario's, at the recommendation of a friend, definitely will not be our last! What a pleasant surprise that a restaurant lived up to and actually surpassed our expectations. From the impressive decor, to the friendly and professional staff, to the ridiculous variety of foods on the Sunday buffet, my only wish was that I could have tried everything, because everything I tried was delicious! This was the very first buffet I've tried where I left nothing on my plate! We took our daughter and her husband to celebrate her birthday and I ended up with the best present of all...the discovery of my new favorite place to eat! Be sure to try the baked salmon, the best I've ever had!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for friends.I have been to Mario,s many times and the food and service is always the same. GREAT! That says a lot because I like to know that if I invite friends that have not been there before that they are going to enjoy their meal as much as i have. We are always greeted by very friendly people, and no matter when we go we never have waited very long to be seated. I will continue to go many more times and it's really nice to have a go to restaurant that I know will be enjoyed by all.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe atmosphere is great forThe atmosphere is great for a night out with friends or family. The food is excellent but a little on the pricey side. I would definitely recommend their prime rib. The service was good but I would have expected a little more attention to when drinks needed to be refilled. I also was surprised that the restaurant did not offer a free desert for a birthday occasion. The waitress did wish the guest a happy birthday but for the price I would have expected something since many restaurants offer something.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our FavoritesWe always look forward to dining at Mario's as we know the level of quality to expect of both food and service. They good to great lengths to make the customer feel at "home", and the menu is varied enough to provide something for everyone. The prices are what you would expect for an upscale full service facility specializing in high quality food and service. We enjoyed our most recent visit and look forward to our next.......5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodThe food was innovative and delicious. Our waitress, Amy, was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. All in all, it was a very enjoyable evening.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExquisiteIncredible spread; An enormous variety of delicious food !5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary BrunchMario's has become our special outing place. The brunch was excellent, as usual. The salmon was superb and the desserts added a few unwanted pounds. The lamb continues to be the best that I've had since Mom made it a few decades ago. The staff was courteous and our servers were friendly and attentive. I'm looking forward to returning.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBuon Appetito!We went to Mario's to celebrate my son's graduation from college. Although we had to wait longer for a table than I would expect having made a reservation well in advance, I could see why Mario's is so popular after we were seated. Our waiter Jeff was attentive, the compact but well chosen wine list has a lot of options in various prices, and the food was excellent. Be forewarned - the portions are ample, and steaks come with a potato nest - you don't need to order a baked potato. The highlight for two of us was the crab and lobster bisque - proclaimed the best they had ever had! Highly recommend it.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellenceIt was my first time dining at Mario's, and I have to say I will definitely be visiting again. The service was outstanding, and the food was delicious. The price was ok too. 5 stars Mario good job.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTell the meat carvers notTell the meat carvers not to be so stingy and tell the pasta server the same; I do not like to ask for "a bit more".5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DayHad a wonderful time with my mother, the staff could not have been more professional and kind. The food was wonderful. Would recommend to anyone.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful experienceOur first dinner after many years of driving by. Exceeded our already high expectations. Gluten free menu substantial in choices & effort.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only real complaint wasThe only real complaint was that I asked for a table close to the buffet. I had my elderly mother who walks with a cane. I got a booth table which seemed like one of the furthest away from the buffet and we had steps just to get there. If we wanted another table it was going to be about a 20-25 min. wait. My mom managed okay though. She enjoyed the food very much. I enjoyed it also. However, the food could've been much hotter in temperature.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time and dinner.Had a great time and dinner. Brought another couple with us who have not been there before and they really enjoyed everything. We love the grilled calamari and the prime rib and steaks were perfect. The rossotto was very good, in fact we got the last dish avaliable. we loved the Sicilian wine we ordered.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst, I would like to sayFirst, I would like to say that I loved the ease of making our reservations on line. The hassle free no waiting on the phone experience was a great start to a wonderful evening. We would like to thank Hanna for the excellent service she provided us while dining at Mario's. The food was fantastic. Love the ambiance and warmth of the dining, however; it the noise level was distracting.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI went here for a romanticI went here for a romantic evening and we had a great time. We had reservations for 7:00pm and was seated right on time. We decided to have the Bruschetta for an appetizer and was very pleased. We also shared a bowl of there lobster bisque and I must say its the best I have ever had. We have been all around the country and this takes the cake. My girlfriend had the chicken French and was delicious. I had the strip steak which was cooked medium rare but was not cooked to my choice of temperature giving it 4 of 5 stars . We will visit again for two people with wine and meals came to only $95 which is reasonable4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMario's provided for a fabulousMario's provided for a fabulous evening for all of us. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. Every need was anticipated and met. You can not go away hungry from Mario's.

Thank You3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Easter brunch!Excellent Easter brunch! I hadn't been to Mario's in a while, and I'm really glad I thought of them for brunch. I'd do that again in a heartbeat. I thought the price was reasonable, and the food was outstanding. Great selection - everything was fresh. And great desserts - best cannoli anywhere!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my mother and fatherTook my mother and father for St. Patrick's Day and had a wonderful time! My husband, children, and I have been to Mario's before, but it was a first visit for mom and dad. They raved about the experience and want to come again when they are next in town. The food was amazing -- but then again it always is! There were a number of Irish-inspired options. Service was fantastic. I only wish we could have heard the Irish band in the main dining room. They were terrific. Mario's is THE best brunch place in town -- possibly in all of Western New York!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways special!One of the top 5 restaurants in Rochester - you can't go wrong!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for food AND the ambiance.Mario's is a great place to go for the food but also for the QUIET. You can request a booth table and have a great dinner and actually hear your dining partner. It may be something you do not think about often but if you have a business client or are on a date it can be very annoying to dine elsewhere where you can not be heard. The service is always great, the steaks are fantastic and the meatballs taste just like my mother used to make. You see Mario there from time to time and he is as friendly and warm as he seems on TV. I entertain business clients there often and have come to depend on their consistent quality of food and service.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
