Erie Grill is upscale and on the more expensive side for Rochester. Duck breast, short rib were about $32 each. Servings sizes are what they should be but that is probably smaller than what the average person expects. I had two strips of duck breast rather than a whole breast. All the food was excellent and the Tuesday half price on wine was a real deal.

Decor was smart and modern. Girlfriend's margarita was delicious and served with stylish black salt that reminded us of black sand beaches in Hawaii. Grilled octopus was among the best I've ever eaten. We'll be coming back for another date or special occasion.

The best thing about this place was the cocktails, the one thing I would recommend is that the desert cocktails be listed on the main cocktail offerings menu, bc I would’ve preferred to try some of those to the ones on the cocktail menu, or at least be informed of them as an option :) service was great, food was good but not superb, kind of bland honestly. Beet salad was one of the best I’ve had :)

Had left note during reservation request it was also spouse’s birthday granted it fell on thanksgiving this year but no wishes or special offers from the waitstaff. Thanksgiving food was okay. Would also recommend not seating folks near butler pantry because watching waitstaff texting on phones or sipping drinks was distracting. I hear it’s good for seafood so maybe will eat at bar and order fish next time

Had Thanksgiving dinner with my boyfriend and thought it was very good. In addition to traditional turkey dinner had their regular dinner, which was great for a little variety. I was surprised by the price of the turkey meal - not sure how one makes turkey, potatoes, stuffing, and veggies worth $40, but it was worth it not to have to cook! If it was a prix fixe menu it would have made more senses at that price (soup and dessert were extra). I thought my beef rib was excellent, but again pricy at $32.

We all had a wonderful time overall however, I would have liked our server to be more attentive and the draft from the outdoor entrance was CONSTANT; under our table was about 20 degrees colder and more importantly, it cooled the food on our table very quickly.

We chose the Erie Grill to celebrate our 37th anniversary and we were very happy we did. The decor is pleasing and the tables are just far enough apart. The food was excellent, especially the duck meatballs and the short ribs. Would highly recommend this very special restaurant!

My son and daughter-in-law were in town for business. They were staying at the hotel so it made sense to try the Erie Grill. Our original reservation was for 8:30, but when they arrived early we called the restaurant to see if we could come in earlier. They were able to get us in right away.
We enjoyed the salads and appetizers. The entree was okay, but didn't dazzle us. Service was good. I expect we will go back again and I have recommended it to others.

We loved the food, but the noise level makes it impossible to carry on a conversation.
We were celebrating 2 birthdays, which they acknowledged when they called to confirm the reservation, but absolutely nothing was done when we dined.
It s a shame that they can’t do anything about the noise level. As much as we liked the food, I doubt if we would return.

Delmonite Inn is supposed to be one of the best hotels in Rochester area. I wish it had a restaurant commensurate of it. We’ve been there before, and now they have new
Chairs and New is not good. The chairs are low to the ground and not very wide.
We sit down and notice the coffee cups are permanently stained. The service was not personable at all, although they did split our beet salad for us. The food was fine but nothing really remarkable. Even if the food was good we won’t go back because of the furniture. The server seemed in a rush to get rid of us so we ordered dessert after she brought our check just because

The food, service, price point and view we're all top notch. I've had brunch at Erie Grill several times and this was my first time having lunch there (my bestie who accompanied me had never been and LOVED it!). I'd hands down recommend this is a lunch or brunch spot and plan to try out the dinner menu soon.

We were first seated next to the bar, which was very noisy. We requested to be moved and were seated away from the bar at a much quieter table. Unfortunately that meant we gave up our view of the Canal. The food and service were excellent. We will definitely be back, but will try to avoid weekends in hopes of a quieter experience.

We had an early weekday breakfast reservation. Upon our arrival we learned that there had been a power outage and power had just been restored. They would not be ready to serve for another 20-30 minutes. Despite this, we were cordially invited to enjoy coffee at our table with a lovely view of the canal. The experience could not have been more pleasant.

Food was exactly as requested and described, and my guests can be critical. Add the beautiful view of the Erie Canal and we had a perfect evening.

Our server was Brooke. She knew the specials off by heart. She could answer any question about wine. She was not afraid to give her opinion of what she liked due to the fact that we had not been there before. The seating was a little cramped. The table behind us was way too close. The food was great for all four of us. My husband got the duck breast. He is still talking about it.

I thought the food was just OK. I had the pork chop and it was a little dry and not as large of a portion that I expected for the price. Simply put, the meal was not worth the price. The drinks were expensive, albeit tasty, and the meals weren't worth $30+ per entree. Maybe if I had a corporate expense account and it was a business dinner, this would be a different review.
