Either waiter forgot to put in our order, or the kitchen forgot to complete it. We were left waiting over an hour after we placed our order. My medium rare steak was cooked no less than medium well. Poor execution for a $60 meal

Back in Rochester to get a check up at Mayo. It’s been 10
Years. I found this place last time I was here. It was great then. Still doesn’t disappoint. So good, I’m going again tonight and will probably order the salmon again. Yummmmm.

I had the Walleye and my husband had a Porterhouse steak. The food was excellent. The wait staff was warm, inviting and attentive. We also enjoyed the wine that we selected with the help of the waitress. It was a relaxing evening out at a quiet restaurant with delicious food.

The fish was very fresh and cooked perfectly. The lemon beurre Blanc sauce was amazing! Highly recommend :)

Note, it’s more expensive than what it says on open table, it was listed as under $30 but 30-40 is the range of entrees (which do not include sides)

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
