    The warmest welcome, the smiles on every face - the staff, the chef and the customers. The beautiful dining room set the mood of relaxation and community. The food and drinks were superb. Every dish was balanced and full of flavor. The duck was sublime. The risotto rich and as good as it gets. Honestly it was all top flight. Service was attentive and timely. My favorite restaurant in Rochester and anywhere. 🌟

    My husband and I dined at Our Paladar over the weekend. We sat at the long counter top in the bar area. The restaurant has a cozy and welcoming feel. It was Sunday afternoon, the sun was shining in providing the perfect amount of natural lighting.We started off with two cocktails, the Smoke & Spice and Butter Me Up, both were fantastic. We ordered a dozen of the pink moon oysters, which my husband loved so much that he keeps talking about coming back to get more. Bonus, they are on the happy hour menu. I had the Denver steak, which was perfectly seared & seasoned. My husband had the wild boar ragu, which was made with fresh Mafalde pasta. He said it was perfectly balanced. We finished off dinner with two cocktails, the #1126 and the Painkiller. Our server was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere and relaxing vibe is just an added bonus to the fantastic meal we had. We will definitely be back soon!

    We did a late valentine date. The service and food were exceptional! The ambiance is very nice. I love the cozy and warm feel when I’m here. The menu is changing with the seasons, and is unique and delicious. For a quick bite, the smash pork burger is a good choice.

    Disappointing food. Well played but poor execution. Duck was severely underseasoned, salad was uninteresting, mussels were not fresh and had a bad texture. Service was good but not excellent. No steak knife provided for the duck, which needed it. Cocktails were decent

This quaint, contemporary restaurant serves top-notch, creative combinations of flavors and textures, and HOUSE MADE FRESH PASTA AND BREAD. Service was thoughtful and attentive. Five stars across the board. Truly the finest meal I have had in years- I will absolutely be back.

    What a gem of a restaurant. We went early just so we could sit are bar before dinner. What’s ball. Great drink options - we had whiskey and gin cocktails. Very good flavors! Happy hour prices. What’s not to love? We ordered an appetizer (fries count, right?) and then moved to our table for dinner. Sharing a couple small bites and one entree fit the bill perfectly. Waitstaff were friendly, engaged, and knowledgeable. We have been here a couple of times previously and have no complaints. A wonderful night out restaurant and so refreshing to see a well staffed and delicious option here in Rochester. Our key to a good restaurant is when we leave after dining, and already look forward to coming back!

    It was a disappointing experience, all in all. The risotto was a little bit soupy; the gnudi salty and mushy with no chicken flavor. The focaccia did not look or taste fresh either. We had a special occasion to celebrate, but eventually the dinner was a big disappointment.

    Within walking distance of the historic Rochester downtown located in an old train station. The service was exceptional and the Cuban food even more so. We started with a smoky spicy cocktail, had a lovely starter, our mains were amazing, and the sweets were also elegant. A short but diverse wine list with international selections. It was a fabulous evening. Thank you!

    Innovative Caesar salad; two main dishes we enjoyed were a tasty wild boar pasta, and an unexceptional but good vegetarian pasta with red pepper pesto. We also had a focaccia that was okay. The ambience is lively, many patrons are college age. Tables in the mid floor are close together giving seating a family style vibe

    Looked forward to trying this new hyped up place, but were underwhelmed. The room is beautiful and they’ve done a spectacular renovation job. Rather than walking in up front you walk around the building down the dark uninviting parking lot. The dining room is warm and welcoming and so was the hostess. It is obvious a lot of care and thought have gone into the design of the room but they forgot the bathrooms which were freezing cold. The server greeted us fast with water and he was very friendly. Our drinks took a VERY long time - even another table who arrived quite a bit after us got their cocktails before us. It was a slow night so that should not happen. We didn’t even get attention and were very thirsty. The tap water served was so full of chlorine and tasted very foul so we patiently waited. While we waited for our mocktails (doing white January) we observed the bartender making cocktails and she clearly knew what she was doing. The pineapple mocktail was delicious. Both presented nicely. The other was TOO sweet but the tastes were good. The Nova Scotia oysters were very delicious but not all were released from the muscle. We ordered a few xtra and in total maybe 3/8 were not released which creates a mess because we also did not get proper oyster forks. The cauliflower was very tasty and presented well as a shared salad. We then had the specials of duck breast with duck croquettes. It was underwhelmingly small. 2 slices of duck and one croquette and a few bites of salad. For $36 this is highway robbery. The duck skin was not crispy and parts of the duck meat was very chewy. The truffle risotto came and it was a large portion. It was al dente but bland and disappointing and nothing special. The pear desert was strange. Quite bitter and too sweet but it grew on us. It had almonds on it in spite we had asked for no nuts due to my son’s allergies. Check came and after they processed the credit card staff disappeared. No one said goodbye. It was very strange.
