Excellent service and food!
Wonderful food and Michael was very attentive as our server
The food and service were very good, the only problem I had was the Manhattan on the rocks that I ordered. A good food venue should have a better bartender. My drink tasted like it was mostly sweet vermouth. It was just bad and I think a Manhattan is a fairly simple drink to make, so that should never happen.
The food and the service was fantastic. I ordered the sea bass which was cooked perfectly that was prepared with a lemon beurre blanc sauce and a crab cake appetizer that consistently remains one of the best I've had.
Very nice dinner: calamari, walleye, scallops. Well prepared and presented. Sophisticated decor. Friendly, informative waitstaff. Very pleasant evening.
Amazing breakfast buffet! Our waiter was great, very attentive and always made our daughter smile when he came to the table. Definitely recommend!
I appreciated our server Sal. He was wonderful and very knowledgeable of the menu. My parents appreciated an elegant dinner to celebrate their 65th Anniversary. Thanks much!
I'm bummed as they no longer have my lamb dish. but the food and service is still excellent.
I have always enjoyed the food at Pescara as well as the service and the quietness of the restaurant. We went there for lunch yesterday and were planning on having the Express lunch menu. When I booked the reservation on open table the express menu was right there for us to look at. When we got to the restaurant the waitress told us that that was no longer an option and hadn’t been an option for quite a while. We were disappointed and I feel that if people use social media you should keep that current so your customers do not come in and become disappointed in what you tell them is available when really it is not.
Excellent experience for a special night out. Food excellent. Wait Staff excellent. Expensive. Private Club feeling. memorable.
our waiter was very knowledgeable and was on spot with drinks, refilling our glass with water. food was excellent!
Upscale dining, delicious food, great service
I shared a holiday lunch with a colleague on a random Monday and the restaurant was beautifully decorated, clean and sleek looking. Their lunch menu is superb and offers great options. The lobster bisque and steak tacos were both exceptional. Kudos!
Great food, generous portions. Very comfortable chairs which is so rare lately in restaurants....along with quiet....we could actually talk and hear all at our table.
Nicest restaurant in Rochester
We ordered a calamari app first and then placed an order for lobster bisque to be followed by crab cakes. Instead of being staged as we asked, it came all at once. Calamari app was very good but a little cool. You’re trying to eat it all at once since its supposed to be hot, but I’d really prefer they staged it like we asked.
We were expecting an upscale breakfast similar to the lunches and dinners we have enjoyed at Pescara’s. We knew it was buffet but did not expect a hotel breakfast with box cereal & day old breads.
My mom and I ate at Pescara for breakfast; we were the only ones in the restaurant. I got waffles and she got pancakes. They were both delicious! The real maple syrup was fantastic and the orange juice and chocolate milk made my morning. The service was fantastic and we would definitely recommend eating here.
Always great food !! We love the side dishes, though this time there was a tuna special that was delicious!! The potatoes and the risotto are amazing and both soups we tried , lobster bisque and squash soup were perfect! Never disappointed!
We had a very enjoyable evening. Our waiter was outstanding, friendly with excellent suggestions of dining choices. I look forward to eating there again. We were celebrating our 48 wedding anniversary.
Great food and service
We ate 2 nights in a row and had excellent selections both dates.
Service was perfect.
Coming from Chicago and eating at fish restaurants quite often we found the prices high.
Dinner was wonderful as usual but I had my heart set on creme brulee for dessert, they were not offering creme brulee because they had only made it for a private party. Pescara's creme brulee is awesome so I was a little bid disappointed.
Always outstanding cuisine and service! Having Jenny as our server was particularly exceptional
Even though our third person bailed out at the last minute, we had an excellent time. The food, the service, the selection of choices, the ambiance, everything was just perfect. We will definitely go back there when we go to Rochester again.
restaurant had a great vibe, great food but most importantly you could carry on a conversation without yelling.
Birthday Surprised we didn’t qualify for points
Excellent restaurant overall. Rochester should be proud of it. Oysters were super fresh and well selected. Gambas were just right and spicy-just right for my taste. Good black bean soup. Even bread was good enough for me to ask for more. Raspberry sorbet completed pleasant dinner. Oh yes, and friendly service...
The food and the service were outstanding. A very nice environment. We really enjoyed our dinner.
Pescara has a lovely Sunday brunch. I love that the pancakes, french toast and waffles are made fresh to order. Everything we had on the buffet was excellent. The only thing I was disappointed about was online I read that Shrimp fra Diavolo would be on the buffet. They offered a very basic chicken pasta instead.
The seafood on their every day menu is excellent. I highly recommend Pescara.
Great place to go and eat. Staff is great, the food is spectacular. Thank you for the great service.
Excellent food and service. Because it's so popular, it is busy and on the loud side. Some of the table are too close together. Regardless, I love going there for my favorite Angel Hair Fra Diavolo.
The crabcake benedict was delicious and served with fantastic gouda hashbrowns. Great breakfast with great service.
Wait staff must have been new but was also not very pleasant. We asked for straws with our sodas and she dropped one so said she would get a fresh one. On the way back with the fresh straw she stopped at a table and used the straw to point out things on a customers menu and also raised the straw to her mouth a few times. Luckily we noticed and said when she brought it to us that we didn’t want the straw and why. She went to get another and brought it back again in her hand without a napkin or anything and said how’s this. It also got busy in the restaurant and she didn’t refill our drinks or anything. When I was ordered I asked what type of fruit was in the mixed fruit. She looked at me and said it is mixed fruit. I said what fruit is in the mix and she said we don’t know. I can’t eat melon so that’s what I asked and she was very snippy. I ordered fries rather than frustrating her any more. She needs some customer service training to better answer questions and respond to special dietary needs of customers especially in Rochester Minnesota with all the mayo patients.
Very nice selection of seafood. My husband had the walleye and liked it. I had the shrimp. Very good.
Liked the wine list. Very happy with our experience at Pescara. This is the 2nd time we dined at Pescara.
The waiters did an excellent job in balance the large table of 18 people with the rest of us normal diners. Service was only a tad bit slower than normal. I will make a return visit next time I am in town.
Great seafood and fish restaurant in Rochester, MN.
Have come several times but I find we are always rushed. We hadn’t even finished our salad and our main dish was brought to our table.
We knew that Pescara was expensive so we ordered accordingly. With a couple of glasses of fine wine, cup of bisque, great salad followed by 'small plate' as entree capping with good strong coffee and creme brulee, how could you beat it?
Very poor service (waitress was slow and sulking most of the time, wine bottle was brought to the table open - and not opened in front of us, she spilled wine on the table when pouring but didn't clean it up).
Food was subpar - burger was dry and overcooked, risotto was dry and undercooked, mussles were ok. Wine was very underwhelming (particularly at that price point).
Decor was nice - and that's pretty much the only good thing we can say.
Excellent service: I can not say enough. And I loved the food...and my date was beautiful.
