We appreciated the pop to eat outside even though there was a lot of street noise. We 4 all ordered different main courses and we each loved what we ordered. Our waiter was very helpful to telling us about the individual items which helped us in our decision-making.
First visit to Pescara and it’s one of my all time favorite restaurant now! Amazing food and polite staff!
Very nice dinner with excellent food and courteous, attentive service.
Excellent food, impeccable service, beautiful atmosphere. I would definitely recommend if you're looking for a nice relaxing evening out.
Everything was fantastic! My wife and I have our new favorite place to eat for special occasions.
Friendly staff, fabulous seafood. The walleye Piccata was fantastic. My husband thought the lobster bisque was the best he ever had.
Service was excellent and the food was wonderful. We will be back.
Value? $37 for one piece of fish (halibut).........everything else is ala carte. Service was excellent.
2 people in our party ordered their signature dish Scallops with crispy potatoes and mushroom sauce and the dish was so salty you could not eat it, we told one of our servers and the next thing we hear is the chef screaming in the kitchen, that is was not salty. The server didn’t say anything to us and gave us our bill including the 2 dishes we couldn’t eat and we paid and left.
The food was excellent!! We always have a wonderful, high quality meal here.
Returned for 2d time in 3 weeks. Outstanding food quality, preparation & service! My wife & I both enjoyed the pan seared walleye frizzed with a butter sauce. The portion was as long as the plate was wide and a good half inch thick (and flaky too). The salad with blue cheese dressing & bacon - Wow! Then we split a side of mushrooms - so good! The wine too is value priced for the quality. Definitely will return and likely will have one of the chef’s specials!
Once again we experienced wonderful service, delicious food, and a relaxing atmosphere. It is always a treat to dine here!
It took awhile for the waiter to show up, but when he did service was expeditious. Drinks should take 10 minutes. If the waiter is busy the manager, bus boy, or bartender should get them out.
Back at Pescara for the second time in one week ... returned for the Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup for one! Brought my mother, daughter and son-in-law since Pescara is operating SO responsible during this pandemic and I felt safe bringing an older person out to eat. In addition to the soup, I ordered the Insigna Scallops Entree ... my mind was blown away at all aspects of this dish. Definitely a must-try for foodie enthusiasts!
The food is always ver good. Service was quick and friendly.
Food fair nothing great.
Would have preferred outdoor seating during the pandemic. Ate at bar and fortunately it was very quiet.
Great food and atmosphere
It was a great experience for all 4 of us from service to cleanliness, your staff is outstanding. The food was superb . The next morning we stopped in for a quick cup of coffee and the gal in the morning was outstanding.
The atmosphere was very nice, calamari (with the sauce on the side) was very good. The ceasar salad was disappointing however the added shrimp was good. Best part was the smoked gouda hashbrowns. Otherwise the food is mediocre.
Loved it !
Great seafood and overall great food, outstanding s waiter that brings a lot to the enjoyment.
The BEST. I love their walleye!! My daughter had their tuna which was perfectly prepared and delicious. This restaurant never fails to please me
Walleye and lamb chops with mushroom risotto was amazing. Everyone working wore masks. Best food since the shutdown.
Our favorite restaurant in Rochester! 5 star in every way!
If you ask about a “special” occasion, such as our anniversary, why doesn’t the restaurant acknowledge it??
Very knowledgeable about the fish they sell. Every time we eat there we are very satisfied.
We thought the dinner was nice. Our favorite before dinner drink is a Canadian Club Manhattan. We were very surprised that an advertised full bar did not have Canadian Club! Very disappointing as we were celebrating a significant birthday and were looking forward to having a cocktail.
The food was delicious, the service outstanding. The prices were a little high, but it was one of the best meals I've had in years, so worth the money. They made a special day even better!
I wouldn‘t recommend for brunch - dinner, yes. I was not aware that brunch was buffet only. I stay away from buffets for health reasons and buffets promote eating. I prefer creative brunch plates where there’s portion control. Being GF DF Pescara buffet was very limiting and ingredients were not listed. I had a $19 bowl of oatmeal which I know was not GF as the effects are notable today. Anyway, awesome service (!) & atmosphere. Would be great to be able to order a plated from-the-kitchen omelette with the creative flair that Pescara is known for.
Delicious food - specializes in fresh seafood. Sea bass was cooked to perfection. Out only complaint is how long everything took - from getting our drinks to our meal arriving. Also, the very thin slices of bread were ice cold.
This was our first visit to Pescara and we had lunch. The tuna melt and lobster bisque were very good. The salmon burger had a generous portion of salmon but was layered with a sauce that was powerfully lemony, too much for me. However, that could be scraped off and the salmon itself was good, although pretty bland. Service was great.
We were very pleasantly surprised that the seafood was wonderful in the middle of the country! My husband and I both had the tuna and it was wonderful! One of our guests ordered filet and another salmon and they both were very impressed! In fact our meal was so good my husband and I came back the next night to try the filet. EXCELLENT!
Excellent service and fish!
Pescara was amazing! Our steaks and drinks were delicious, the server was very friendly and attentive to our needs.
The fish tacos are fabulous and Mike the server was very attentive!
Love their brunch!
Dined here three nights in a row! Once you find a place with great food and service you stick with it. Shout out to Tristan, Michael and Daniel, all great servers and knowledgable. Sea bass was prepared perfectly as was the side dish of Broccolini. Great wine list and please leave room for dessert and the expertly made Buena Vista Irish coffees.
We had a lovely Birthday Dinner for my sister who is in a wheelchair. The restaurant was very accommodating and our waitress was fantastic!
Great service and friendly staff. Food was great.
