The food was amazing and staff wonderful. One of the best meals I have had in Rochester. The menu included a variety of types of dishes and I had a difficult time making a decision. Chez Bojji is my new favorite restaurant and I can’t wait to return and try other menu items.

Amazing food in a great atmosphere. Know that dinner will take a bit of time so best to plan for being there at least a couple of hours. This worked well for us as we never felt rushed and enjoyed our time.

What an amazing experience but when Chef and Amber are running the show I wouldn’t expect anything less! The food was delicious and the service was attentive and friendly. This is one of our go to places for date night!

Very cozy and inviting atmosphere! Service was terrific and the food was excellent quality, though a bit on the expensive side. Music was a tad loud, would prefer the music is simply a background sound, not something one needs to talk over.

I've been eating Chef Bojji's creations for about 5 years. His food is always good and inventive. You can tell he's passionate about his cuisine. And he gives back to our community.
This new space is wonderful! Light, open, and airy.

Incredible food. Great ambiance. The chef came out to greet us personally and gave us a brief view of the establishment, as well as going through his menu & specialties with us. My girlfriend & I each ordered the Chef's Choice 5-course meals and were very impressed with the flavors of the food. Quite an experience. Definitely on the boujee side spending-wise, but a wonderful food experience overall. Neither of us drink, so being near the bar was a little noisier than we would like, but overall it was an incredible experience!

City caliber dining in Rochester! We were warmly greeted by both the Chef and his wife at our table and treated to an array of on and off menu delights. Solid cocktail program as well as a very nice wine selection completed the experience. Recommended!

Made a reservation a long time ago for Valentines Day ... only disappointment is that we were seated in a back room that was freezing cold and was away from good ambiance and could not hear the piano player. Another thing I missed was some vegetables or a salad ... there was only meat and carbs on the menu.

Great local place. Velentin's Day dining was delicious. Regular menu has nice range of dishes, prices. Attentive servers and a visit from the owner adds a special touch. Good to see local brews from South by Southeast.

I brought my girlfriend here for her birthday. We were excited to try a new restaurant! We were placed in the back room, next to a space heater (which another couple thankfully asked if it could be turned off). Our waiter continued to state that he was sorry, and didn’t want to interrupt us whenever approaching the table. I’m almost positive he never even introduce himself. He made it very clear that it was the end of the night and that we were his last table and he basically did not care. We overheard another waiter explaining things about different meals and the history behind the building which was super interesting and I would have much rather given my tip to that server. When asked if the restaurant does anything for birthday celebrations, our server actually chuckled and said “no we don’t do that here.” That’s fine, I wasn’t expecting a free meal, but at least say, “I’m sorry, we don’t so than here. Have a happy birthday anyway!” I have heard such wonderful things about this restaurant and I’m really sorry to say, we will not be returning. Sure you might say it’s only one bad experience? Unfortunately that one bad experience, completely ruined it for me.

My husband and I went to Chez Bojji for the first time to celebrate Valentine's Day. We sat at the bar and bartender Carly was an absolute delight. They had a talented musician playing piano and it really set a fun but romantic mood. As for the food, my husband ordered the Filet Mignon and I ordered the Moulin Rouge Chicken. We both agreed each meal was one of the best we've ever had. Can't wait to go back again!

Tiny portions, huge price tag, nothing to brag about. I would not recommend or return. I'm fine spending a good amount if I love the food, but this was just okay. The steak was barely even warm when it arrived to the table. The best part of the meal was the appetizer.

My husband and I were extremely excited to try this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary and it was a complete disappointment. It started the moment we were greeted by the host when asked about my reservation and they were not prepared, given that it was 4:45 PM on a Sat. evening and we were only the second table to be seated in the restaurant. The service was very slow from start to finish, although everyone working in the restaurant made sure that my table of 4 had enough water. Which seems that was the only focus the entire time. My husband’s entree was not ready by the time they delivered 3 of the 4 entree’s to my table and my food was already cold. My husband received his entree 5-7 minutes later in parts, first part was the potatoes that were still not fully cooked and the second part was the filet mignon. We did not complain, but ate our food, which was good, not great, paid our bill after our server had some technical difficulties with our payment and then we left. The menu was a preset menu for the evening with the next day being a Valentine’s Day and I did not expect that since it was not noted anywhere on the reservation nor the website. Like I said at the start of this comment, we were extremely excited to dine at this restaurant for the first time, however I probably won’t hurry back even to try an item off their full menu. Needless to say, there was not any acknowledgement of us celebrating our anniversary, a bit of a bummer.

This locally operated restaurant is very unique. Distinct menu items and a lovely setting in a renovated stand-alone building. We enjoyed our crab cake sandwiches and the overall ambiance of the place. The proprietor of the restaurant hosts special events and does some nice community service things- such as free meals on Thanksgiving!
