The Erie Grill is newly renovated
The Erie Grill is newly renovated and occupies a great location along the Erie Canal. Food was very good, although the service was just "okay". I would definitely return.

Recently renovated and gives it a younger, more hip vibe. However quality of food and service remained the same. Big changes to the bar menu and especially like Tuesday BYOB or 50% off bottles purchased.

I had a wonderful lunch at the Erie Grill. The new decor is trendy but not overstated. The bar has a cool elegance and looks like a great place to stop and have a cocktail. I had a turkey burger which was fabulous. The menu was diverse with something for everyone. I would highly recommend the Erie Grill.

Modern, sophisticated but not stuffy. Lovely views of the canal.

A great discovery
The Erie Grill was a great discovery. Recently renovated, the small dining room has a beautiful and peaceful view over the Erie Canal. The menu lists appetizers, small plates and large plates. The cocktails are really great and there are specials on drinks everyday. My bone-in ribeye steak was more on the medium side than the medium-rare I ordered, but it was so juicy and tender that I immediately forgave the cook!

Check the drink specials!
I went back to the Erie Grill a couple of weeks after our first visit for their Wine & Dine night: half off all bottled wines, $5 wine by the glass and no corkage fee! It was much quieter than the previous visit, and that added to the charm. The food was still awesome (my NY strip still slightly overcooked, so I have to remember to order it rare next time, just to be on the safe side). They also feature the Flourless Chocolate Cake from the nearby Village Bakery, which alone is worth the trip. Definitely a new favorite!

The Erie grill continues to impress! We liked the unique cocktails and the well prepared food with local influences.
Profiteroles were amazing!

This place goes above and beyond for their guests. The service was prompt and the food was great. If you want to impress, take your date here.

We really enjoyed our dinner at the Erie Grill! The food was excellent and our server was friendly and professional. We've had meals at highly rated restaurants in Philadelphia (where we live) that cost twice much and were only half as good! Lovely spot along the Erie Canal in this quaint little town. Try the craft cocktails!! We both had fish as our entrees and they were super fresh and perfectly cooked. Nice wines by the glass too. Highly recommended!!

This restaurant provides a fine dining experience with menu items that you won't find many places in Rochester. It has a great ambience, and the seating looking at the canal is great! We had a great time and enjoyed the wine list as well! I made an online reservation requesting a scenic table for a birthday celebration. They accommodated us and even provided a dessert for the birthday boy! The coffee was excellent, too! We had a great experience.

Very Enjoyable Dinner.
I have business folks staying at the Del Monte next week and wanted to check out the restaurant to make sure it would be OK for a business dinner. Service and food were very good (might even say Excellent) and the view of the canal was a treat. Fn to watch the ducks, kayakers and occasional tour boat float by.
Will definitely be holding our business dinner there next week!

Enjoyed the visit. A nicely varied menu. Portions a bit on the small side but very tasty. Service was on top of everything as well as being warm and friendly. Bread was less than appealing.

Great food, the bar can be noisy
The Erie Grill delivers a constantly great experience in terms of food, drinks and service. Kristina has been our server at all of our visits and she's always caring and attentive (plus she has a great memory, remembering my wife and I after our first visit). Check the website for the daily drink specials (we especially love the Tuesday night's half off on wine bottles and no corkage fee). The menu has a short list of appetizers, a nice selections of small plates and regular size dinner entrees. Desserts are great too (definitely try the Flourless Chocolate Cake, which comes directly from the nearby Village Bakery). The only downside is the closeness of the bar, which can be pretty crowded and noisy especially during the happy hours (4-7).

Good...can be better
I am overall happy with the renovation look. I wish some things stayed the same as before the new look. One is the focus on service. Wait staff try hard but some new additions are not the same quality as before the new decor arrived. Its a little more edgy than before, to say the least. The food is generally very good over the dozen times I have eaten there now (beet salad is amazing). It is very noisy now and difficult to have an intimate get-together here compared to before, especially if there is a crowd at the bar that is right in the dining area. I applaud the upgrade but wish Ernie's quality influence was still felt more here.

Finally, and upscale restaurant on the canal with great views in the middle of Pittsford. Food and service are excellent. Speciality bar drinks are exciting.

We had an excellent meal from start to finish. Our waittress was attentive and helpful. Unique wine list with a variety of different wines by the glass.

Been here many times, but
Been here many times, but this is the first since the recent renovations. They seem successful with a larger bar area and dining nearby with a nice view of the Erie Canal, but the acoustics have gotten worse. Granted there was a large group celebrating a birthday, but the lack of proper noise canceling materials accentuated the noise. All that said, the meal was wonderful as was the service. Breakfast the next morning was calm and quiet.

Beet salad was excellent ,
Beet salad was excellent , steak was a little fatty and came out warm . Ahi tuna was ok but sauce on noodles were too spicey. Great wine deal on Tuesday nights . Half price with a nice selection . I would try it again but order differently .

Dinner by the Erie Canal
Since it is part of a hotel/spa, the Erie Grill does serve breakfast, lunch, dinner & Sunday brunch. We ate dinner only. The setting has been renovated recently, and though the color scheme tends toward the cool end of the spectrum, the overall experience was quite pleasant. Dinner menu has 2 Starters, 5 "Greens," 7 Small Plates and 8 Large Plates. Portions were appropriate in all cases, unless "quantity" is your main criteria for a "great" meal. We ordered the Beet Salad, Octopus Salad, Erie Grill Salad all quite unique and well executed. For mains, Seared Scallops, Maryland Lump Crab Cakes, Ahi Tuna and Rabbit Sausage w/ Orecchiette pasta. Again, each very unique with no common components. Each dish is well thought out. Every bite enjoyed

A great find!
WOW! The recent renovation of the Erie Grill is stunning! The bar is really attractive along with the rest of the decor. Our service and food were impeccable. I had a couple of special requests ( dressing on the side, no potatoes, extra veggies) and I was accommodated with a smile.

Nice Dinner and great service
Server was very attentive, warm, & inviting. Food was nice & fresh. Honestly was expecting some more interesting dishes on the menu. Overall, a nice anniversary dinner though.

I always enjoy my visits to Erie Grill and the staff are a lot of fun especially Kyle who makes you want to return. The food is very well done with a good variety of specials. My only disappointment is I wished they had a larger selection of more small plates or appetizers that are table shareable. I appreciate the daily specials, especially the Tuesday wine at half off or no corkage fee.

We stayed overnight at the
We stayed overnight at the Delmonte Lodge and made 6:15PM reservations 2 weeks in advance. For cocktails my wife enjoyed her red wine. My Southern Comfort Manhattan was "unlike any other SMC I have ever had". I should have returned it. The bartender must have misheard me.
We were given a narrow table for 2 (no linens) fitted tight against a wall which cut down on the available space for arm movement. Why? The room was lightly filled and never did full up the entire 2 hours we were there.
The service was very friendly and attentive. My filet mignon was cooked rare as requested. The wife's salmon was also good. My coffee was regularly refilled. Dessert was excellent. I would return if staying at the Lodge and preferred to eat in house.

Great Food and Service
We had a great dinner and loved our waitress, Christine/Kristin. She acted like nothing was too much to ask for. The food was delicious and I really loved the octopus salad, something I would've never thought to order. Delicious. Prices are high enough that it's good if you're only taking the two of you.

The food was delicious, service provided by our waitress was horrible. She had an attitude, waited to long for her to bring dessert and then after having to complain, she came with it and said so sorry it took so long but we have to be sure that the pie is heated all the way through so it's nice and warm. So I touched the pie and it wasn't warm at all, she lied.
The tables are too close together and the waitress could barely fit in between to lay down our hot dishes. Other than the pie incident and the tables being too close together in the shared booth area, I would go back, ask for different waitress, as that the table next to me not be filled with another customer unless absolutely necessary for space..and never ever order the Apple pie
