Great service: The waiter was passionate about the food and making sure we enjoyed ourselves. Smart about wine, too, which I found inexpensive and very good.
Great food: Memorable; one of the best I've had out in a while.

Great vibe, excellent meal!
Had an outstanding experience... hoping for a place that would be contemporary, casual but chic, and moderately priced with excellent food. It was truly all of that. First, the restaurant was quite accommodating when we needed to adjust our reservation (twice!) for our party of 5. The place had the exact "feel" I was going for and service was excellent. Now, about the food: The menu had a great range of choices which we needed since there were quite diverse tastes in our group and that was one reason I selected this restaurant. We shared an appetizer sampler plate along with an order of tater tots and then everyone ordered something different for their entrees. Literally everything was delicious!

Went with a group because they exhibit photos from Image City photographers. Food good and waiter very attentive. I think for a lunch group we ammused him.

Lovely and Intimate City Dining
This place is a real gem, from its old plank wood floors to its authentic tin ceiling, not to mention the quaint sitting areas in the bar and the charming sidewalk seating. The food is gourmet -- even the burger is extraordinaire! This is the place I bring business guests for a memorable meal that's sure to please the palate!

We dined on a Wednesday to celebrate our anniversary. We arrived 20 mins before our reservation to have a cocktail at the bar. We checked in with the host & they already had a table ready if we wanted to sit! After relaxing in the bar, we were sat at our table, which was right in front of the big picture window looking onto the street, so cute and private. We ordered the appetizer sampler. The pierogis & the bean dip are out of this world. Then for dinner I ordered the applewood scallops, giant scallops wrapped in bacon and perfectly seared, sitting atop couscous. My boyfriend got the pork shank, which he loved. Overall, the experience would have brought me back on its own, but the well-done menu seals the deal. I can't wait to go back!

Great Outdoor Dining
We sat outside and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Jazz Fest was in full swing but this was just far enough from downtown to not be affected.

DON'T MISS EDIBLES!
Edibles is a wonderful restaurant in the University area of Rochester. The food is amazing. They also have specialty drinks that are very interesting and also amazing. This restaurant is one of those gems you are glad you found.

A really nice find in Rochester.
A really nice find in Rochester. I would definitely go back. But a little later in the day when things pick up a bit.

Great first experience
Food was phenomenal, location and vibe were great!

Another good meal at Edibles
I enjoyed the beet salad and a pizza on my most recent visit to Edibles. It was a delicious foodl and great fare for a summer meal served outdoors.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
good for return visits
liked the food and service first time, food still good but service not as good as last time. server was not as attentive to our needs; feedback question very noncommital, didn't inquire about the specific orders. duck legs excellent as before. brussel sprouts underseasoned, needed some lemon perhaps or balsamic. asked for lemon; got 3 very thin slices which hardly gave any juice.

Good food in a very attractive setting. Well located near the Science Museum and the Eastman museum

First time but not the last
Took my sweetie to Edibles for his birthday. The food was excellent (I had the mushroom gnocchi and he had the honey bourbon glazed salmon), our server was adorable (Rory), and the building is beautiful and charming. Am looking forward to trying more on the menu; I especially appreciate the variety of vegetarian dishes.

Service was amazing
Such a great little place to eat! The food was amazing and the wine list is pretty decent as well.
Our server was the greatest and was able to deal with my boyfriend and I. We would recommand "Rory" as your next server!

A place for great food
The food was delicious and service excellent. There is a great variety on the menu. We loved the "beet" salad!

Great menu variety - awesome
Great menu variety - awesome servers - have been here a number of times and NEVER had a bad meal or bad service - love EDIBLES!

A Great New Menu
I enjoyed selections from the great new lunch menu at Edibles. It combines new selections and old favorites. Their borscht remains a favorite and their newly-visioned beet salad is the best in Rochester.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have not received better service in Rochester. Our server was Nick. He was so much on top of his game that we personally thanked him at the end of our meal for the phenomenal service. The food was fantastic as well!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Both entrees were very good
Both entrees were very good and the appetizer sampler was fantastic. It was a slow Monday night so the service was extremely good and the food came fast and hot. Very good experience all around.

Edibles sits in an historic building in the Neighborhood of the Arts in Rochester, NY. The ambience is New York City with white tablecloths. The space is intimate and yet there is plenty of elbow room. The wait staff is excellent, attentive without being cloying,. I had dinner with two others. We began with the crab cake appetizer which was excellent. My entree was the pork and which was cooked perfectly; the others had the salmon and the ravioli both of which were also excellent. We had a bottle of Pinot Noir which was a good choice. Portions were just right, not too small and not too big, but I did take half the pork home.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Totally enjoyed every aspect of this restaurant . The ambiance, service and menu selection were all terrific. I enjoyed the best swordfish I have had in years. Interesting flavoring a on pasta. Dessert was delicious. Indulged beyond because so tempting and so worth it. Will definitely go again!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The appetizers are amazing. We loved the crispy duck legs, truffle tots and the pierogi. The entrees, while good and satisfying, were less inspired. My husband's scallops were huge, but not well-seasoned and the crab cakes were bready and salty, but not very crabby. My roasted chicken breast with prosciutto was very well done. It was moist and flavorful as were the roasted potatoes that came with it. I would have preferred fewer potatoes with a second vegetable for accompaniment.

Just a great place,always and interesting menu, food done to perfection and always a great wait staff. We love the place!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I enjoyed myself very much! Excellent! I want to return very soon! It is a beautiful place and the food was exquisite, even your burgers went above and beyond!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great experience...
We don't eat here often, but when we do we know that we can expect it to be wonderful. The full menu has more than enough to satisfy all different tastes. We chose to go with some specials for our latest meal and we certainly did not go wrong. The heirloom tomato pizza (last of the season) and mussels (specially cooked in a beer broth) really hit the spot. We were even well-accommodated when we missed our reserved time by 15 minutes. We really appreciated that!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our meal was excellent, our server (Rory) was helpful, knowledgeable, engaging and prompt, and we loved the atmosphere. We would highly recommend Edibles to our friends. Thank you!
9/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
We have been to Edibles many times both for lunch and dinner and they never disappoint. The food and service is always above average, although it tends to be noisy.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Waited awhile but great food
We waited 20 min or so for a table that we had reserved and that was open the minute we walked in the door....food was amazing but we waited almost 45 min for dinner. If you have no time limits this is a great place. Food is amazing - pretty expensive for the portion size but you don't leave overly stuffed.

Edibles is More Than "Edible"
I've lived in Rochester for a few years, and this was one of the best restaurants I've been to since living here. The food was elegant and delicious, and the serving staff was extremely helpful and friendly.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really nice find
They are doing good things here. Nice neighborhood find with a very creative menu. Terrific shared appetizer sampler was plentiful and with an interesting flare. Perogies were really good and hand made pastas were a nice touch. The fish dishes were well prepared and fresh. Definitely a notable Rochester dining spot to return to.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another wonderful dinner
Delicious unusual dinner choices. exciting gluten free and vegetarian menu!!!
Thoroughly enjoyed the variety of interesting flavors! Can't wait to go back!!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still my favorite restaurant...
I love this restaurant. The food is amazing. The waitstaff are so attentive, helpful and know the menu inside and out. The whole experience is a pleasure from the moment you walk in. I have eaten so many meals here, and I have never had anything less than outstanding. The Chef and Owners have done an amazing job - and have created the perfect restaurant!
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My now fiancé proposed here. Quiet, romantic spot. Food was great. The only bad thing was we booked thru open table for an 8:30pm restaurant and I think they had shut down the kitchen, so the soup was cold and some options out. The reason why I mention this as you may want to book a bit earlier then suggested on Open Table. Our server was amazing, super helpful so it totally made up for it. Food is definitely different and foodies would enjoy...
10/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food great service!
Went out with the fam for a birthday dinner. Everything was awesome from the sampler plate to the main courses. We enjoyed scallops, shrimp, pork shank, & gnocci plus loads of sides. The truffle tots are novel! Service was just right, did not feel rushed and the waiter had great suggestions. Can't wait to go back and try more delish entrees! Nice location.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lots of fresh ingredients, there were so many choices, difficult to decide what to eat! Not in love with the name, Edibles, I would hope the food is better than just edible, and it was.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food with prompt and knowledgeable staff. Nice atmosphere, though a bit too loud..
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistent and pleasant
Service was attentive, pleasant and efficient. Love the quaint feel of the restaurant. The food is always outstanding and consistent.

Edibles used to be one of our favorite restaurants,
but a bad meal a few years back turned us off.
Upon a recommendation from a friend we gave it another

was delicious (change in chefs perhaps?) the only

Back their original vegetable strudel with veggies, sweet potato and pine

Edibles..A Rochester treasure.
My husband and I really enjoy our dinners at Edibles. Only one disappointment was when we went on a Monday. After a busy weekend, several menu items were unavailable. I have had lunch there several times with friends. We all agree that the food and wait staff was excellent. Our anniversary is coming up this month and we will be making reservations there.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Continues to be one of the least known places in the city. Food is always very good with excellent service. Bar is also a pretty good place to stop for a drink. Menu changes often and always interesting.Can't go wrong

The food is outstanding. Service impeccable. A hidden gem.

Kids at Dinner - bad idea
Love Edibles. Would go back again and again. Our waiter Nate was terrific. Remarkably a couple brought in their two young kids for dinner at 8 pm. They spent time on their loud iPad and screamed and stomped around the restaurant. The staff was mortified and the parents had no control. The staff felt bad for all of us around them. It shortened our stay but we realize it was out of their control. We will be back....the food was as always extraordinary and the staff was great

Truly enjoyed this place and
Truly enjoyed this place and the rib eye steak was the best I've had in a very long time.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Four of us were traveling to Rochester from Buffalo, for an evening event. I searched for an open place to eat, and by pure blind luck, came across Edibles. The food was excellent! Hands down, the best scallops that I've had in a LONG time! The appetizers (sampler platter and cheese plate) were exceptional, especially the lunchbox shrimp and duck legs. I would go there again, and again, and again!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious food, not great service
This was my second trip to Edibles. This time we went for lunch. I took six other women and, unfortunately, it was almost empty. Very sad for such excellent food. Only one waiter was on hand and that made sense in a very unbusy Black Friday. Once again, the food was delicious. We had crab cakes and shrimp as starters and everyone loved them. Salads and entrees were equally delightful. I especially recommend the beet and candied nut salad. One detail undermined our otherwise lovely lunch: our waiter did not put our entree requests in until very late and entrees did not appear until almost an hour after our arrival. When asked about their progress, he was rude to me. Perhaps he was nervous, but rude does not encourage returns.
