The food & service were excellent. We sat near the bar so it was a little hard to hear each other talk. We will be back for sure!

This place is a little difficult to find if you've never been here before and it's after dark. The ambience has a modern/rustic feel. It took a bit for the server to get our drink orders and delayed service continued to be a trend over the course of dinner. They specialize in Cosmopolitans which they serve with dry ice for effect. The drinks were very good but the food was amazing! We started with the Ahi Nachos, which were a perfect balance of savory and spicy with a bit of sweetness. I don't think I've ever had anything quite like them and I will definitely order them the next time we visit. For the entree, I had the Filet Wellington which was perfectly cooked to medium doneness and so delicious. The pastry was golden and buttery. My dining partner had the 10oz Strip which was also perfectly cooked and seasoned well. No need for sauce, the juices were enough. The food was so good we forgave our server for not being on top of things and that says something. We will definitely visit again the next time were in Rochester.

Waitress was very nice. We have gone here for years and normally everything is excellent!
The chicken tasted spoiled. The waitress actually served charred chicken tenders to my son, we sent back.
Martini tasted unusually weak.
Don’t know if it is new Chefs or what, but it was very disappointing!!
We will go back and try again. Hope it is better next time

It was our first time dining at 300 First and we must say it was an outstanding evening. The service was excellent and all of the staff was friendly. When we arrived we were seated right away with our reservation. The food was also excellent and not overly priced for a fine dining restaurant. We look forward to coming back and will be future customers.

Overall, very nice place. Excellent service. We both ordered the 6 oz filet mignons -- both were supposed to be cooked medium. One was cooked perfectly; the other was charred on the outside. Edible but not great or even good. We both ordered the grilled asparagus which arrived luke warm. Every else was great.

Everything was great, the service, the ambiance, the wine, and the flavors of the food. My chicken was a little too dry for my liking and my husband’s steak seemed a little on tough. Would like to try it again sometime though.

We were seated right away for a drink, they came fast and were cold, then seated at our table when our friends arrived and nobody came to our table for about 10 or 15 minutes until we flagged a waitress down, there send to be some confusion on who had our table after that service was ok, our prime rib was a good sized portion but not very tender or really flavorful, the onion rings we're the best I think I've ever had tho, the garlic mashed potatoes were really good the creamed corn was ok, the food could have been warmer too.
Our friends beef Wellington was really good as was their salmon.
Bread pudding was middle of the pack.
We'll go back again for sure.

Earlier dinner hour was not crowded. Excellent wait staff. Old fashioned was very sweet, but was remade a bit better. Food was just ok - very MN without much flavor or spice, but not bad.

Ribeye was a poor cut. This was mentioned to our server and she took no interest.

We will not return for a second visit.
