To be fair they just recently opened for dinner so the menu options were somewhat limited. Hopefully that will get better with time. Server (Kathy) was very nice, the food was good and the ambiance is always wonderful.

Small menu, but this is quality food over quantity. Sampled the dinner specials, table ordered the lobster risotto and duck pasta and an appetizer of the charcuterie board. Everything was amazing. Slight delay with bar drinks, but staff was apologetic. If in the area, this is an elegant meal/venue right on the Erie Canal.

We always try the house cocktails. Some unusual combinations, but quite interesting and delicious. Same with food. The standards are great, but the specials are always eye-catching and very tasty. Not usually a fan of a strip steak, but had it as a special last night and it was cooked to perfection, juicy and delish! A little noisy with a smallish crowd, but I think that was mainly due to the 2 intoxicated women next to our table. Service always spot on here. We will return again soon.

Once again, the Erie Grill did not disappoint. Even though the menu is slimmed down a bit these days, each dish we ordered was beautifully prepared and presented ... from the panko chicken to the steak special. Best of all, our server, Kathy, always makes us feel welcome and takes care of us with great warmth and professionalism.

We're glad to see that the Erie Grill is open again. Prior to Covid, it was a favorite dining destination for my wife and I. We were there this past Saturday evening for dinner, and were very satisfied. The food was tasty and the service top notch.

We came for brunch on a Saturday morning with a reservation and were seated immediately. The service and food were both outstanding. The french toast was light and fluffy and had piles of delicious strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. My niece had the egg-white omelette and said it was also outstanding, with delicious home fries on the side. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice spot for brunch.

The meal in itself wasn’t terrible.. The chicken was over cooked and the crust was hard, th hey were out of the special by 7:00… Delmonico steak.. not much variety . Server was excellent. The best part . Wine was too expensive.. cheapest red was 50.00.

We were so happy to see that The Erie Grill had reopened, disappointed at the paired back menu especially the loss of the chicken wings which we had ordered multiple times to go . Our waitress was very nice but when it came to ordering our food it went a bit strange . Two of us ordered the chicken which was so over cooked we could barely eat but we asked if we could get a side of fries or potato’s with it , we were told no by the waitress but she’d ask the manager , the manager came over and said no sides but we said the burger comes with fries so you are cooking them , she said yes but you can’t have them with the chicken only the burger 🤷‍♀️what !!so we said can just have two sides of fries and charge us the burger price again no , only if you have a burger so we ordered a burger and fries just to get the fries , seems ridiculous. I then asked for malt vinegar to be told they don’t have any ok I’ll take balsamic..So the next day our friend who ate with us there the night before goes for lunch and low and behold they have fries as a side and he got malt vinegar, we have been going to The Erie Grill for years and the whole no fries situation seems ludicrous especially as they are cooking them with the burger ……

Everything was very good! Table was ready as soon as we arrived. Service was excellent - Irene was terrific! Good was delicious - we ordered the Mahi fish sandwich and chicken salad.

We love eating at Erie Grill. I am sad that they aren't open for dinner due to all of the challenges with the current labor issues. We hope they will find all the folks they need to open fully as they are a great spot for the Pittsford community!!

The menu is basically the same as it has been for ten years or more. The food is adequate--not outstanding, not terrible. It's very much like standard hotel fare. An omelet with toast and coffee runs about $20 without tip.

Nice bar. One bar observation, one patron WAY past drunk, cut them off before they get like that. Nice place, food was good server was fantastic, price is reasonable for an upscale place. Hostess seemed a bit disheveled but was very nice. I would most certainly eat there again.

We made reservation for a window seat, but we’re not given one even though one was available until we insisted. Took 15 min to get our drinks before dinner. Why ration bread? Waitress not too attentive. Beautiful atmosphere though

Very disappointed. Had a reservation for 5:30 but before we sat down were told we had to be done by 7pm as there was another reservation. I hate to rush thru dinner so I will not be back. And after all that the next reservation never showed up until 7:30 or at least that is when someone sat down. I was at the bar watching to see what was going to happen.
