Great for a special occasion. I went with girlfriends for my birthday. It was kind of noisy so a little hard to hear each other. The food was great and our waiter Devon was very friendly and accommodating. Great atmosphere.

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.

It was Easter Sunday, very busy, but seated and attended to immediately. Seafood scampi could have been a touch warmer, but was delicious!

We had service until we sat at our table. The sever never checked back on our coffee, and to see how our meal was, and the Burger was flavorless. Very disappointing, thankfully here were french fries with seasoning. Very disappointing

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.

I was there to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday. The place was full and the ambiance was great. The foos came on a great timing and we enjoyed every bite. I did feel a little hushed by the waiter, since the place was full, though, but I think that's to be expected.

very enjoyable evening with friends! we got seated at a back booth for six...decently quiet so we could carry on great conversation. very nice seating! food was very good. my steak was well done instead of the medium rare i ordered, but the waiter took care of it and comped my meal, which was really nice, although everyone had finished eating by the time my meal came. we've been to cameo several times, and this, by far, was our best experience. we'll be back!

We enjoyed a fun dinner here this last weekend. The selections we made were all fabulous in flavor, texture and presentation. Highly recommending the short rib as it was phenomenal, melt in your mouth with a wonderful almost Thai peanut inspired rice. My personal favorite was the bahn mi, the flavor of which was fresh, crisp, balanced and delicious. The enchiladas were a bit bland but the ramen was again flavorful and had beautiful, fresh produce. The bread pudding was the best I’ve ever tasted - even after many visits to New Orleans.

We gave Cameo a second chance and again waited over 2 hours for our food once the order was placed. Our waitress was wonderful and the food was yummy, but we won’t be waiting over 2 hours a third time.

Absolutely a fabulous restaurant. Service excellent and food wonderful. Love the many unique options. One recommendation....they need more help in the bar area, when people are waiting for the restaurant to open. Maybe only an issue on the weekend, but we felt sorry for the bartender he ran like wild with full bar and only one person to cover everyone. He did awesome job but more help would be great. Loved this dining experience.

Our waiter Eli was amazing! He explained things very well to us and he was very attentive. So was Devon, who was also working in that section. Our meal was so wonderful—best meal we’ve had in Rochester in a long time.

Our server made no mention of off menu offerings. I only knew there were some because I heard them mentioned when another couple sat near us.
Did not like the sweet potato coconut curry. My companion’s beet salad looked better with less carbs, so will try that next time.

Good food - burgers very good, strawberry burrata very good. Drink was a little bland (caipirinha).
Restaurant needs door between dining room and kitchen so guests don’t have to stare at garbage cans and sinks!

Cameo is now getting the recognition it deserves. I took 2 friends on a Thursday evening and figured it would be slow. While a few tables were available the place was wonderfully busy, the kitchen and staff were doing a great job and we had a great time.
