    Won't return. It was lackluster. Service was pleasant but rushed. Aperol Spritz was barely orange.

    Astor on Main took our reservation for Thanksgiving - 1:30pm November 23 for 3 people. I made it on November 5th. I was asked to confirm the reservation the day before. But, when we got to the restaurant at the appointed hour we found it locked up tight with no lights on. There were no signs about closure. We tried both the inside and outside entrances. The doors were simply locked. I can understand wanting a day off on a holiday. But in that case don't accept reservations. If something comes up forcing closure, at least have the decency to contact those who are expecting to dine so they can make other arrangements. VERY poor showing here.

    Went to Sunday morning “Jazz brunch” and there was no music and hardly anyone there. This restaurant advertises the fusion of food and music but our waitress told us there’s no live music any more. I feel we were there on false pretenses. That said, the food was great, if not a little overpriced, and the service was fantastic.

    Failed to mention on web site they no longer had live music. Trio burger had very little taste. French fries were obviously frozen out of a bag and I have had better at Wendy’s. Antipasti and lobster bisque were good. Beer was improperly drawn with large head resulting in 3/4 of a beer. Overall not what I expected and definitely not worth the $

    We had a very nice dinner at Astor on Main. The shrimp and grits and fried green tomato sandwiches were really good! We were disappointed to find there is no longer any live music, but would definitely eat here again.

    Honestly, such a unique experience. Jazz and brunch! Hope it sticks around. I loved the menu. It was unique. Portions were sort of small for the price but the food was good. Astor should advertise their brunch more ! Rochester loves brunch!

    The morning buffet was horrible. There was little to choose from: egg beater scrambled eggs, dry sausage, burned bacon, and medium quality potatoes. We ordered the avocado toast and the slight bit of avocado that was on the dry toast was BROWN! We did not eat it. The only good thing was the coffee, the saxophone player, the waitress, and the beignets. Other than that: you should be ashamed! Change is necessary as could be seen by the fact that there were only 4 other people in the entire restaurant!!

    Sadly this was a very bad dining experience. Sorry to say this because the music and entertainment was great. That’s why we went. We painfully waited for everything from the first and only drink due to lack of service, to the food, which was terrible and not even hot. I had to get up several times looking for anyone to help me get drinks, water, to order and then the check, no one was to be found. Ridiculous. We brought my 83 yo mom as a birthday brunch and we were disappointed to say the least. Short staffed, new staff, like many places but at least acknowledge us! There was no sense of urgency from anyone except the bartender who stepped in to help when I went to the bar to look for help. Will not go back and this is not fair to the entertainment who rely on the patrons for support.

    Everything about the experience was excellent except one diner at a nearby table asked if we could be quiet while the music was playing. He was polite and we completely understand his appreciation of music, but it's not a concert, and everyone else, at other tables, was also talking, which is what you expect to do when you go out to eat.

    Nice spot, but not very busy on a weekday (we were the only lunch customers). Feels like the old Mortons - might be nicer with more people in it. Food was good. Waitress was attentive, but needs some bartender training.

    This was our first time and we live only 10 minutes away walking plus we wanted to hear some music. The food was excellent. I had the short ribs which were delicious. My wife had the grain bowl and she liked it a lot. Our waitress was very nice, helpful and attentive. The band was a lot of fun. They were a jazz sax quartet but instead of playing old jazz songs they played new pop songs. They would tell us about the song and when they finished they'd ask us to tell them what it was. The way they did the songs was to play the melody then just go into a swing, improvising solos which is really how jazz started. I thought they were great and a lot of fun. I am looking forward to returning.

    Ambiance is nice, música was absolutely wonderful. Food was fair, service poor. Server didn’t know the Bri ch menu which consisted of 6-7 items. He’s not the wait staff you’re looking for. Price of food high for what we received, though it was very delicious. As a new place you need to step up your game, maybe we will come again or maybe not. Really loved the live jazz music - peace M

    Ambience was fantastic, we missed the live music but I'm sure that's great. The food was sub-par. I was expecting a fresh burger, but it came out looking like a pre frozen burger that was dry. Fries were good. The whiskey tasted watered down. Hopefully they pick it up a notch, the place is really nice and the staff is friendly.

    They had a very small menu. What was on the menu, about 70% they were out of stock on. It was Mother’s Day and there was not much I could eat as they were out of everything. Also, I requested a corner table as there was someone that is hearing impaired with our party and called to specific ally ask to not be seated in the middle of the restaurant. The person who answered the phone assured me that we would be at the end in a corner. We were seated right in the middle of the restaurant. I won’t be going back.

    Nice addition to the Rochester scene. Soft jazz to still have a conversation and good food as well. We went for brunch. Staff is friendly and accommodating. I really liked it. I don’t as in no hurry and relaxed with my wife. One small thing, food took a bit to come out but was worth the wait. Give it a go!

    This was such a lovely place for a date night! The food is delicious, the service was quick, and of course the live music was phenomenal—I especially appreciated that the music was the perfect volume to be heard, while also allowing my partner and I to have a conversation without shouting at each other, even though we were 10 feet away from the stage. I hope more people go to this place to enjoy the ambience, and support the artists who come to perform in the evenings!

    We arrived 15 before our 8:45 and had to wait 25 mins to be seated. Once seated we waited 20 mins before I had to literally stop the same host that sat us and asked could we get water and when would the waiter final come take our order. We order a signature cocktail that tasted terrible. We ordered salmon and filet mignon. The salmon was bland and the filet mignon was dry. The live jazz was amazing but the food and service sucked

    It might have been an off night for the staff. Food and music was great. The service was “off”. We ordered an appetizer, they served it with no plates. We had to ask twice for water. We asked twice for our drink order. We would have stayed for another round of drinks and dessert but it seemed the staff was stressed. We’ll give it another try.

    The food was amazing! However we received it cold, our salad was forgotten (never served at all) and our glasses of wine, and the service was extremely slow. The location of our table was near the restrooms and the emergency exit. People were there from the PGA taking pictures and they set up, stood by our table the entire time, and opened the emergency exit door letting cold air in. Jimmie Highsmith Jr. and his accompanists were amazing!!!

    Enough can’t be said about the friendly and courteous greeting I experienced at first encounter. The cuisine exceeded three important criteria for my dining experience: presentation, price, and portion size. The Decor is elegant in style, and the ambience, with its dim lighting, creates a mood of inviting intimacy, as the music entices you to swing and sway to the melodic rhythms of the sound. All-in-all—a wonderful experience.

    Arrived with a 8:30 reservation to be asked to sit by the bar because there wasn't any tables available ? Confused. Bartender was friendly and nice however drinks were not good. Food had no flavor or sauce. Entrees arrived before the appetizer. Jambalaya was more on wet side. Braised beef was very dry, with no sauce. They were out of potatoes (only been open two days so far). Corn and crab fritters were- dry. Music was great- the band was nice and soft.

    The host was friendly. We were 15 min late for reservation and they seated us with no problem. Once seated however, it took over 20 minutes to be greeted by a server and be offered water. I believe he was a manger. He comped our dessert to make up for it. The ambiance was not great. They made absolutely no changes from the Morton's décor other than adding gold napkins and a gold light fixture in the middle of the table, that didn't light up. The floors needed to be vacuumed and the wallpaper touched up or replaced all together. My husband and I both had the crab and corn fritters. Horrible! Literal dollops of mayo all over or plate with slivers of lemon. I know this was supposed to be an aioli but it was just actual may. The fritters were a mound of flavorless fried dough with dare I say; too much crab. The crème brulee was actually just pudding. The cookie and caramel dessert was good but nothing special. It tasted like Tollhouse cookie dough pumped up a bit. We didn't order entrees after being so disappointed with the fritter. The band was good. I'd go back to sit upstairs and listen to the band for free. Unless they get a new chef and a facelift, they'll be out of business by summer. Yes, summer 23'.
