Made reservations for the chef's tasting 5 courses. Service the entire time was spectacular. The chef and sommelier were truly passionate about the pairings and made us feel welcome and informed. All of the food that we had was not only visually stunning, but flavor packed and appropriately cooked.

We will be back!

The food was flavorful, the portions were generous, and the atmosphere was fun! Be prepared for slightly slower service and a noisy environment. The setting in the castle is modern industrial meets rustic charm. I will return for tasty food again.

Great service. Doesn’t feel like a lower level with the large windows. Great food and presentation. $15 corkage fee for wine you bring if not one they carry. Will go again for a special occasion.

We had the filet bruschetta appetizer and it was very good. For the main course we had short ribs, chicken schnitzel, seafood scampi, and halibut. They were all very good but I’d pick either the ribs or halibut over the others. We also had sides of Szechuan beans and asparagus, and had plenty for 6 of us.

It was our first time at Cameo and was recommended by Rochester foodies we met at Goldrush Antique show where we were selling.
-We started with a shared mixed greens salad which was ample and tasty.
-My husband ordered the Chicken Schnitzel for $23 which I also tasted. The chicken breast was lightly breaded and was very moist and tender. The accompanying spaetzle had been pan fried and was tasty enough. Being German food fans, I'd characterize the red cabbage as bland.
- I ordered the surf and turf for $35 which was served on a bed of grilled asparagus. The filet was ordered med-rare and came as ordered and was tender and juicy. The 3 shrimp were char-grilled and for the price could have either been a little larger or more plentiful.
-We shared the bread pudding paired with bourbon ice cream for dessert which is Bob's least favorite but as it was Mother's Day weekend, he deferred to my choice. We both agreed it was the best bread pudding we'd ever eaten. I stopped at the hostess station on the way out to comment on the bread pudding and was told the chef's wife is the pastry chef. They are obviously a good team.
- Our waiter was helpful and attentive and allowed us to rest and chat a moment over our drinks before he turned in our orders. We had just come from selling at the antique show and needed those few minutes to unwind.
- Wine list was appealing and Cameo's offer to open a full bottle of any wine on their list and allow me to purchase 1/2 bottle of it was a first for us. Too bad I was already enjoying an awesome white rum mai-tai before I read that.

It was a friend’s birthday. Even though I stated it was a birthday dinner when making the reservation, I had to tell the server the reason we were there. She promptly brought our guest a scoop of ice cream as a birthday treat.

Cameo went above in beyond in addressing my long list of food allergies (gluten, shellfish, dairy among them) and still providing a meal that was the highlight of our week in Rochester. The Tom Kha soup was perfect even with adjustments and the sweet potato curry was perfectly balanced and delightful. My husband greatly enjoyed the surf and turf. The drinks were impressive but the service was the real standout. And the space itself is beautiful. Big thumbs up to chef owner Zach Ohly who addressed my concerns and was just an enjoyable person.

Great Easter Brunch experience. Bright and sunny in the restaurant. Lots of natural light. Everything we ate (deviled eggs, shrimp cocktail, brunch burger, steak and eggs, and huevos rancheros) were all delicious. They bring a Bloody Mary bar to you if you order a Bloody Mary and make it to your liking. Drinks were great. It’s a BIT pricey for the town, which will catch up quickly with everything happening.... if the locals will let it happen. Entire Castle Community is a gift to the city worth experiencing.

First time visit for brunch. My Cameo latte was not hot at all, but our server said "fresh is best" and got me a warmer one (although still not as hot as I'd like). I ordered the Huevos and was disappointed. The beans were cold. There was no visible salsa and just a few sprinkles of queso. I would have sent it back but we'd already waited a long time for our food, so I didn't. My husband ordered the hash and did like it. I will come back and try again though.
