Scene on Main at The Hyatt Rochester reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Worst experience ever
    Socialdiner
    Dined on 10/3/2013
    The service was lousy. We were not given bread plates or water refills for crying out loud. It was quiet and only one other table but we were the first ones there. It was like the staff was purposely ignoring us. We tried to get the waitress to stop at our table and pay attention but tunnel vision. Food overpriced and poor quality steak and undercooked sides.

    The grilled cheese lived up to its reputation - a unique comfort food paired with comfortable, high-back chairs that offered some privacy for our group lunch. The fresh parmesan cheese was a tasty and elegant topping for pretty much everything our group ordered.

    we actually liked the appetizers better than the meals themselves. All the appetizers were delicious, from crab cake donut holes to vegetable sliders to a MIddle East Flatbread pizza-like dish (our favorite), to the beet salad. The meals were just OK. Our salmon was a bit dry/overcooked and while the idea of the stuffing was great, it didn't work out as well as we thought it would (though no fault to them for trying--it sounded good). Our friends' pasta was OK, but they thought nothing great. The dessert was delicious. Service was attentive throughout. It's a nice bright, open setting. We'd definitely go back for a small plates kind of dinner with friends--shared appetizers. Not sure we'd try entrées again.

    Your restaurant is good for a business luncheon but sadly, it didn't do well for a Christmas dinner.

    I like to think of Scene on Main as an upscale tapas bar. All the dishes are designed to be shared. Our favorites are the Nova Scotia Lobster Mac and Cheese, the Grilled Flatbread and the Angus Burger Sliders. The new design-your-own-pasta menu is quite interesting too. The service can be a bit casual, occasionally.

    Convenient place to "catch a bite" if you are staying in the hotel. Somewhat limited menu of small portions of food. More expensive than it should be for Rochester. Breakfast buffet remains a highlight.

    Food was decent, but a bit overpriced. Prices may be typical for business professionals, but not for a local couple on Valentine's Day. Next time, I will be going to Crab Shack.

    Very convenient place to grab a drink & a lite bite. I was surprised that the servings were as small as they were & I found them a bit expensive. I stay in the hotel occasionally & will try it again. Great breakfast buffet.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 10/29/2011
    Had dinner on a Saturday nigh - a little confusing as to how to get seated as the dining area is situated in a small area behind a wall between the front desk and the bar area. Funky decor/seating in the small dining area - you're not really looking out directly on Main Street, but at the building across the side street. The menu had a pretty good variety of offerings, from tapas to full dinners - all a la carte so it adds up, but we were very satisfied with the service in and the meal. And we stayed overnight which entitled us to a complimentary breakfast buffet which was great.

  • Restaurant felt like an afterthough
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/9/2011
    Restaurant felt like an afterthought. What can we do with this space near the lobby? There are only a few tables in a freezing mostly white space, with very little fabric. Not cozy. I felt like I was waiting for a flight. The food seems to be actually all finger-food appetizers, which people usually try to make sound more sophisticated by calling them tapas, but this place didn't even do that. So when you order what sounds like a sandwich, or a pizza, or a plate of hummus and falafel, etc., all you're really getting is a small open faced flat bread thing. Yes, you could order many things if you actually went out to dinner because you were hungry, but none of themtasted any good! Oh wee, at least they validated our parling ticket.
