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.

The food , veal chop was excellent. Had lamb sausage appetizer yummy. Didn’t like that my side salad came out with my appetizer, prefer each course on its own. Limoncello cake yummy. Service was good but not attentive. As evening got later noise level was awful, couldn’t hear each other across table.
Would recommend for the food. That was the best.

Six of us had a very enjoyable dinner at Rochester Bistro. All of our dinner choices were wonderful and prepared perfectly. The wine list is extensive and well priced. My friend had a margarita and said it was the best he’s ever had.

Overall the quality of food was good. However my filet (which I ordered medium) came back a hockey puck the first time, and raw the next two. They did not charge us for our meals or drinks at all, which was appropriate given the circumstances , but the manager never bothered to come to our table which was an added disappointment. We likely will not return.

3 of our party of 5 had to return their steaks multiple times as they were not cooked as ordered...2 of which were not done right even after 2 attempts.
Server was very polite about it but at no time did a manager come over and due to having to send back the steaks our party could not enjoy eating together.
Very disappointed we will not be back

Overall good experience. The food was great and the service was good. We were at a table that was near a wait stand so that wasn’t ideal, but it still was nice. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

The beef tips glazed with a light brown sauce, mushrooms and onions as an appetizer were a real surprise, savory, tendor, and simply amazing. Wife had the lemon chicken which after having one bite, I felt I got the raw side of the deal, which is partially true. It was a medium rare NY steak that was lean and thick with a delicious red wine sauce. No salt required, just soak up the sauce bite after bite. They also have an exceptional selection of wines. The owner really knows his/her stuff. Just a perfect dinner with the wife.
