Following lunch, the restaurant transitions itself into a lounge-like dining and drinking atmosphere by revealing liquor selections behind the bar, showcasing a vast wine selection, and softening lighting for the evening hours.

The menu offers a variety of crave-able Contemporary American cuisine that encompasses both coursed meals and smaller plates to share at a range of price points. Executive Chef John Freezee and Sous Chef William Hughes imaginatively utilize seasonal ingredients to present the finest in regional cuisine.

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 told her we were going to share and Irene served already plated for two! Thank you so much - we'll be back again!

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 chicken salad was delicious. Grilled chicken on a bed of slaw with peanuts and a spicy dressing.

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.

Superior service. Food was excellent—perfectly prepared and flavorful. Ambiance took a decline in my scoring only because the canal was overly drained for the season and all we had to look at was mud in its basin.

An uninspiring atmosphere on a potentially beautiful location. The food is outstanding. The service from Kathy was just excellent.

The Erie Grill is a hidden treasure that should be packed nightly.

The ambiance was great! Very clean and safe feeling during COVID. Our server was very nice and very knowledgable and accommodating. I felt comfortable with her suggestions for safe foods (I have Celiac Disease). The meal was good, and well presented, maybe a little pricey, but good overall. It was a nice evening out! We will come again!

Stopped in for lunch. Food was good, service was good. The view would have been nice if the Canal wasn’t bone dry so we’ll probably go back again when there’s water!
