Nice family dinner out with the kids. The bread and the drinks and my husband’s lamb was fantastic. The Brussels and steak tips and charcuterie board were OK.

We have been to the Rochester Bistro several times and it is always fabulous. They are the BEST at steak! We had wonderful friendly service as well.

We enjoyed our meal for the most part. The service was on point and helpful when navigating the menu. The bread could have been better from a freshness standpoint. The restaurant can get loud as its mostly hard surfaces.

The menu on opentable is outdated as the prices have increased by 15% - 20%

Was a great time but the room our table was in was very small and there was a large family that was very loud and basically yelling. Was really hard to hear the other person I was with. Also waiter couldn’t find us another table somewhere else. Overall it wasn’t bad as-long as the people around you aren’t loud.

The noise level was terrible. We had to almost yell to talk with each other. The prices on the menu had been increased tremendously since our last visit. We felt it was way over priced and way to loud for our liking.

The menu on opentable is different than the one at the restaurant. Quite a few items weren’t available and the prices were more expensive at the restaurant than what is on their menu on opentable.

I went there specifically for the Chilean Seabass which is on the website menu and they don’t have it anymore. The restaurant should update their menu online. I tried the salmon and I think it was the best Salmon I’ve ever had. Will definitely be back.
