Phenomenal experience! Hands down best brunch in Rochester. Live music for brunch was a nice touch. New brunch menu is really good.

Overall an exceptional experience. Our original table was located next to a large group birthday celebration which raised the noise level to the point that it was getting difficult to hear. Asked our server if we could move and he immediately accommodated us and moved us to a much quieter location. The food, as usual, was very good to excellent.

The food and service were very good. The menu has a lot of interesting items that appealed to me. I ordered the sweet potato coconut curry and loved it.

The ambiance was dreary, cement floors and exposed rafters made it seem like the place was under construction. There were not a lot of other diners when we were there but one group was very loud making it difficult to carry on a conversation.

Filet bruschetta and burrata were awesome! Mains were some of the best in town. Prices vary greatly so watch the menu. Atmosphere is open and comfortable, and service was great. Will definitely go back for more.

First time at Cameo. Three of us had different menu items and shared. Would order anything on the menu. Waitress was very professional and came to the table only when necessary. I’ll be back soon!

A very nIce experience however food was not exceptional. Sea bass was good but sauce was very bland, lobsterccheese and Mac was not hot and had very little lobster. Green beans were excellent
Limited choice of wine by glass.

Cameo is everything we love about Rochester dining and more. The menu changes with the season, always bringing new delicious ingredients to our table. Cameo offers a wide variety of dishes inspired by world-wine cuisines. Dishes range from fresh to comforting. The wine selection is wonderful compared to other restaurants in this area. Cameo is by far our favorite place to dine in Rochester, we are customers for life!

Thank you so much for making our Christmas Eve dinner so wonderful! My family isn’t always easy to please and they couldn’t stop raving about how delicious the food was and how nice the restaurant was. Everything was perfect and we all had such a lovely time, we will definitely be back!

Love local restaurants..so few here. Fun atmosphere and very tastefully decorated for holidays. Servers were very helpful and polite. Food was great. Could there be half plate options? I know I could take the rest home, but it is never as good as at Cameo. Thanks for a great uplifting time.

Went to cameo for the first time to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday and it was a wonderful experience the food was delicious and the service was top notch. Our server Sharon was wonderful, even boxing up the appetizer so we could have room for our entrees. She is fantastic and I would love her to be our server everytime we come back.

Service was professional and attentive. Ambiance is just “okay”, as was the food. French onion soup tasted as if out of a can and beef short rib was a bit dry - not very tender. Ramen was actually pretty tasty, but we were disappointed that they no longer had pad Thai on the menu.

Thank you for the review. What would have made the ambiance better for your experience? I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the food as much as we would have hoped. In terms of pad thai being off the menu we change our menus seasonally and some items will come and go with the seasons. Ramen took the place of pad thai for us this winter. We hope you will give us another try and have a great experience!

Great first experience at Cameo, enjoyed an hour of Happy Hour, then a relaxing and delicious dinner with my girlfriend. We followed this up with live music upstairs. Beautiful building, wonderful amenities. Thoughtful and useful spaces. I will be back!

We had an amazing time at Cameo at the Castle thanks to our amazing server Cherrie. We were celebrating my friends birthday. The food was fantastic. There were options that everyone enjoyed. Cherrie was super attentive but also let us chat and didn't rush us. She was incredibly friendly and fun and made out night more enjoyable. Cherrie also took a ton of photos for us to capture the night. She went above and beyond what I would expect for a waitress. I will be back and I will be requesting the same server.

Food and service was excellent. The 3 star review is a result of finding a large piece of plastic wrap in my mussels.

Restaurant comped my meal and gave me a dessert.

Foreign material is a huge concern and could’ve been a choking hazard, but we will return as the restaurant handled the situation the best it could.

Our server never asked us for a drink order or made any suggestions. I had to ask for a wine menu and suggest we get something other than water. The food was just as good as it normally is and all the staff were courteous. This is a beautiful venue.
