    We started at the bar for happy hour cocktails ans were promptly greeted by a server who took our drink order. The service was quick and the drinks were awesome. When we sat down, we were promptly greeted with water. Our server came over and explained the menu questions we had. She was extremely knowledgeable about both the menu and drink list. We got an assortment of food; salad, sushi, cheese tasting, the poached egg app, and the chicken entrée. Each and every plate was absolutely outstanding. The service was quick and professional- the server made us feel welcome and not rushed. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for an amazing night out!

    The OpenTable online reservation was easy. The ambiance at the restaurant was very nice. Service, as expected. Liked the ambiance the best. The menu was nice. I was excited about the choices. I ordered a noodle bowl, my first mistake. It was tasteless, so I added the Thai Chili sauce which gave it some zing, anyway. My spouse ordered the Spicy Tuna roll. She thought she had had better sushi at Wegmans food court in Geneseo. I agreed. Don't get me wrong, the food was not bad, but nothing to brag about.

    We were there for my mother in laws birthday and had a wonderful lunch, exceptional service (Brian) and great desserts! Their creative interpretations on their dishes left the group raving -- coupled with the attentiveness and overall ambiance, Wegmans does it again! A special thank you to Brian for always going above and beyond for my guests (whether personal or business) -- truly the finishing touch to an already phenomenal experience.

    Great place for a special dinner ... Some of the best food I have had ... Waitstaff was great from the water and bread person up to our waitress who explained everything and asked us about ourselves and made suggestions from there and brought great conversation to our evening. Very expensive but worth it for a celebration.

    Havent been there in quite a while because of the "healthy" menu changes. Didnt think your menu was broken so unclear about the need for a fix. I checked out the menu online last week and noticed some tweeking to the menu that made it much more appetizing and accessible. We had a wonderful meal. Delicious. Love the caraf of wine idea as well as the four ounce option. We do miss the pizzas but can find another restaurant for that. Service was awesome. The new booths add a warm touch to the decor. Next door is back on the top of local restaurants!!

    Went with my fellow foodie friend and her daughter who are all top chef watchers and this food rivaled anything they make on the show. We had the pork belly buns,BLT bruschetta , the Pork chop Oscar ,The burger and then butterscotch creme brulee. It was all amazing. A meal we will remember for a long time and are already planning a trip back.

    Food was excellent, great variety, I had sushi and my husband had steak. He said the ribeye was the best steak he has had in a while and he loves steaks but he is very picky. The chocolate BBQ sauce that came with his steak was disgusting, so he was so happy that he asked for it on the side. The waiter seemed to try too hard and was a little strange, but other than that we had a really wonderful evening and date night there!!

    We got the duck breast, the cheese plate, oysters, and minted lamb ribs to eat and a cocktail and glass of wine to drink. All tasted good, but not worth the price. The side for the duck, some kind of stir fried vegetables, was bland and a somewhat strange combination. The cheese on the cheese plate were all goat's milk cheese and for $8 it would have been nice to have more than a nibble. Definitely the smallest cheese plate I've ever been served. The oysters were good but not $2/oyster good. We enjoyed the drinks. My advice: go to the bar and get a couple of drinks and maybe an appetizer or two. Then head out to Good Luck or The Revelry for better selection, better taste, and lower prices for dinner.

    This restaurant just doesn't quite have it. It is advertised and priced as a higher-end restaurant for Rochester but in the end is pretty ordinary. The menu rarely changes and there are never specials, meaning that there is little creativity going on the kitchen. The food is good but not great and definitely not worth the money. For the same price, there are many restaurants of similar style in Rochester that are better. We won't be back.

    The food was very good and the service was top notch! But I was over the moon for the desserts! Everyone at my table was blown away! I had the creme brulee. It was superb! And on the plate, there was a garnish of chocolate mousse with sea salt -- absolutely amazing!!! I will never again think of chocolate mousse the same way!

    Fabulous dining! Menu was hard to choose from. Many excellent choices. Selections were all outstanding and prepared to perfection. Patricia, our server, was on of the best I have seen anywhere. Very, very friendly, courteous and extremely well informed on any of the menu items as well as the wine and cocktail selections. We were seated in the curved bench seating. Found that uncomfortable, but easy for conversation. All in all an excellent experience and will definitely return.

    The restaurant had great atmosphere and the service was great. The fish in the meal I ordered was dry but the overall dish and flavor was good. The strawberry salad had one (only one) strawberry in it. I understand it had the strawberry dressing but the description should be more clear on the menu. I will certainly be back to give it another try but not for a while.

    It was our first time eating on the outdoor patio and was surprised there wasn't more than a glass wall between the table and busy Monroe Ave traffic. (We thought it might be quieter than the usually boisterous noise level in the dining room.) The wine was fantastic, food was either very good or excellent, and service was attentive. This is one of my favorite places to eat in Rochester, though I often choose elsewhere if I am looking for a quiet/intimate environment.

    Overall, my girlfriends and I had a nice time. We were celebrating a few things and our server recommended complimentary Cava (nice touch!). Service was good. The food was tasty but I was disappointed that there weren't any specials (though there were plenty of good options on the menu). Also, we weren't presented with a cocktail list an the dessert options were a let down. Great space though!

    This was our 3rd time for dinner here, and this time our dinners were not even edible- on par with (coach!) airplane food; the pasta was mushy and overcooked, the salad was bitter and the dressing bland! The take-out food at Wegman's grocery store is better than this. Service is friendly, but extremely uneducated.

    As always, the food was great. Although the bottle of chardonnay that we ordered was warm. The service was very good but the noise level was a bit high. I think it is the design of the dining room with high ceilings that carries sound. We dine here on our birthdays and it is one of our favorite local restaurants. We will definitely be back.

    Had a wonderful experience with my boyfriend for my birthday. We had a reservation but came an hour early to enjoy happy hour. They had some nice signature house drinks that were half off but the selection was limited. The atmosphere was very quaint and overall the restaurant was not very big and a reservation is a must. Several waiters and waitresses were constantly helping our table and were always available. We both ordered steaks and they were cooked perfectly and served in good sized portions.
