Edibles Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
I've eaten at Edibles several times and have never been disappointed, this night I took my parents and they too were impressed with the delicious food and nice atmosphere. My dad and I enjoyed the flat iron steak. My mom had the bourbon glazed salmon and loved it! Great service, great food!
My mother was in from Florida and choose Edibles where she has dined before when she lived in Rochester. It ended up being a great choice and was an excellent time. I requested a specific table through my reservation and it was ready and waiting for us when we arrived. The service was great, the timing perfect and the food delicious. They had NY wine selections which is always great to see. The roasted beet and goat cheese salad was my favorite and my mother was raving about her Braised Short Ribs special. It was an excellent night and we recommend it to anyone looks for a elegant night out.
I came with my adult daughters for dinner before going to the Auditorium Theater. I had heard good things but was really amazed at just how good it was. It was the kind of experience that I had to be careful not to allow the audible sounds of satisfaction to be too loud. The Pierogi's were melt in your mouth, died and gone to heaven good!!!!!!
Lovely exposed brick restaurant has a great romantic feel. Attentive and professional waitstaff. Appetizers were wonderful. Beet salad-delicious. The Kale Sweet Potato cakes were the major standout. Could have eaten ten of them. Caramelized brussel sprouts-can't go wrong. Unfortunately, they did go wrong with the seafood "Cioppino" which the waiter described as a "thick stew." It was not a stew (which sounded good in subzero weather), it was a a little bit of sauce dripped over a big piece of sea bass, surrounded by mussels and shrimp. The sea bass was a nice cut, but it was barely warm and definitely hot meal temperature hot. My wife's asparagus were a bit overcooked and her steak was unremarkable. Excellent evening in many ways, but we hit some so-so entrees.
I've been to Edibles on occasion for lunches. On Friday Feb 13th we had a couples night out, four people for dinner. Our wait time past our requested reservation time was acceptable, and the staff was quick and courteous. Unfortunately I was not all that impressed with the food. I ordered the 16 oz black angus strip steak medium-rare, and the meat was properly cooked but lacked flavor. My husband had the quinoa & black bean burger with a side order of asparagus, and we didn't realize they had substituted the side. Our friends were served the prosciutto scallops and the ravioli, both of which were good simple dishes.
Overall the restaurant has a soft, intimate atmosphere and is enjoyable for a date night or quiet dinner. I will be back for lunch again.
I have been to Edibles several times over the years. This visit was not the best. Although the food was generally quite good, I found it a bit odd that a high-end restaurant like this one, doesn't offer crushed peppercorn for one's salad, or condiments for french fries. There was no salt or pepper at our table, but when we asked our server for fresh peppercorn we were told there was no pepper mill. Condiments like catsup was never offered and by the time the server came back it was a bit too late to worry about it.
As for the food itself, fresh bread was brought to the table and it was delicious. Unfortunately, wait staff came and quickly cleared the bread plates without ever asking if we would like more. The duck and the hanger steak we ordered were prepared exactly as requested. The duck special in cherry glaze was very tasty, but the hanger steak seemed bland and a little tough. Both the wedge and beet salad appetizers were very good as was the chocolate cake for dessert.
The ambiance seemed excessively noisy due to a particularly loud table, bit when they left all was as we've experienced in the past. Finally, our server seemed a little distracted (perhaps she was just very busy). She did stop back a couple time to ask us if we needed anything further but her demeanor made us feel it was obligatory rather than genuine.
Feel like getting away? Go to Edibles! It feels like a restaurant in NYC or Boston. But it's in Rochester which is better in my book!! Food is amazing; service is second to none. My absolute favorite place to take guests to impress. And my choice to go for a quiet and romantic evening!
I have been to Edibles several times before but took a group there for NYE. I am so anti price fix... and Edibles pretty much had there whole menu going with no limitations. The food was great, the drinks were great, and ALL was awesome. Would highly recommend Edibles to anyone!
What a wonderful time we had yesterday at Edibles! The food was incomparable and the wait staff was attentive and served everything on time without pushing to finish or lagging between courses. We were treated as if we were the only people there. All the food came out together. It was such a pleasant experience. My Bride was so happy with everything, and that is all I wanted for her. It was our first time at Edibles but it won't be our last. Thank you for making my Son wedding memorable.
Edibles was a new experience for us, but we wanted to give it a try. The wait staff was very welcoming and friendly, we immediately felt at home. We enjoyed a glass of wine while waiting for our table. We ordered the farmers plate appetizer - the cheeses in in-house made bread were DELICIOUS! My husband ordered the pork shank - a new entree on the menu, I ordered the flatiron. Both were cooked to perfection, didn't even need the steak knife that came with the entree. Everything was absolutely great, will definitely be visiting there again. Its a smaller place, so a reservation would definitely be recommended.
My chicken dish was delicious. The combination of black olives, feta cheese and tomatoes along with spices created a dish that was appealing to sight, smell and taste. Our server was attentive and very pleasant. A terrific start to an evening of dining and Eastman Theater. Will certainly return!
I came for a drag brunch with a group of friends and had a great time. My only complaint was being that we were one of the last tables to get up for food, by that time it was picked over and no longer fresh. The baked french toast which looked to good, was like soggy old cardboard by the time we got to it. I would suggest either choosing foods that last a bit better in these situations or rotating it quicker. So with that, I don't feel like I could accurately judge the food. People who were served first seemed pleased.
The food on the menu sounds very good. Yet the service, cost, and actual food leave you with an empty wallet and empty stomach. A $12 egg roll appetizer should really come with more than 1 egg roll... Come on. Salmon balls with all bread crumbs and no salmon. Even though I made a reservation, my guest and I still waited 15min to be seated while there were open tables in the dining room. Poor hosting and poor service. Don't waste your time and money at Edibles--you will regret it.
We had two meals at Edibles. The lunch menu was great. My companion loved the beet-based soup and salad. I had the lobster ravioli which was outstanding. The onion soup was just so-so. Off the dinner menu we had the flat iron steak (deleesh) and the maple bourbon salmon, outstanding, with the most wonderful caramelized brussels sprouts. Great cocktail menu, too. I say five stars!
This was our second time here in the last month. We love it here!! The staff is extremely friendly and offers honest suggestions when asked. Our server was attentive and personable the entire evening. The food was awesome. My partner and I shared the chicken special for 2 and were very pleased. We will definitely be back!
The food was great and usually is. Vegetarian options are available upon request. Most appetizers are a little heavy but very good. Entrees with good portions, hot and cooked to perfection with excellent seasoning. Fruit and cheese board had about 1/8 apple as the only fresh fruit which was a little disappointing. Service is a little slow and somewhat chaotic which has been the case each of the times I have dined there. Longer than usual waits to get drinks, order etc... Atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed. That and the food is why I keep going back.
