As usual we had a wonderful dinner. Typically we have one of their steaks, but this time opted for the burger, mine with the truffle fries and my husband's with the fennel fries. Both were quite good. The food and service did not disappoint. The sad part of the evening was knowing that the restaurant will be moving its location to the suburbs. Having moved from the suburbs 25+ years ago, we were enjoying not always having to travel an hour to a restaurant with fantastic food and a great atmosphere.

Mulefoot always delivers! They have wonderful, local , seasonal menus. Although they did not have a vegetarian entree listed on their winter menu, I called ahead and the hostess checked with the sous chef if they could make me a plate out of available items. I had handmade fettuccine noodles in a light cream sauce with lemon zest and a side of sauerkraut red cabbage. So yummy!
The menu is set up in 3 courses and I highly suggest you try something from each course. I had the squash bisque soup (amazing), my vegetarian entree, and then a chocolate mousse tart with warmed pears and crushed hazelnuts for dessert. Everything was so delicious, even the drinks!
This was for a girl's night out with a friend from out of town and her 'foodie' soul was content!
If you are looking for exceptional customer service, wonderful food, and a cute downtown restaurant experience, I highly suggest dining here. :)

1st time visit, went to try, starting with their Winter Burger Special, sadly the burger was dry, slightly overcooked, the bun was stale and over grilled, not much to the accouterments, the fries were wilted and soggy with too much salt.

Phenomenal service! Servers made our family feel so welcome and checked back with us frequently. Food was top notch! Our party of four shared three appetizers — the FTT bacon, FTT sausage, and roasted beet hummus. For entrees, ordered the sheoherds pie, pork chop, and Tomahawk steak. Pear danish for dessert with delicious French pressed coffee. I can’t say enough about this wonderful restaurant. Casual dress code with gourmet-level food. Not a cheap dinner but definitely worth every penny!

I really appreciate the chef creating an off the menu vegan dish. Would love to see at least one vegan/vegetarian option on the menu as I would frequent this place more often.

This is a hidden Jewel. The menu is anything but boring. Local meat and farm produce go into the meal. Excellent selection of wines and beers.

Megan, our server, made great recommendations, and her sever present smile added to the experience.

Will be back again. I may need to try the rest of the menu.

Brought my parents, because they were visiting us in Rochester from PA where they run an educational farm program. We appreciated the whole set up and the food was not only delicious but more sophisticated than I would expect this far off the beaten path.

Great restaurant that takes pride in using local ingredients. The waitstaff is very knowledgeable with the menu and is eager to guide you through the reguarly changing menu. The menu changes to accommodate seasonal local ingredients. The chef is very creative with putting ingredients together that puts a new look on food.

I wanted to love this restaurant especially since its brings a high end location to the area but I just didnt. Service was great and the restaurant was slow due to a snow storm. I gladly will pay 100/person for a great meal and drinks but this just did not deliver. Starters were good, but mail course (house cut) was dry as was the bread pudding. Dessert was ok but did not seem homemade, more assembled. Coffee was fresh and drinks were good. The did give us a $20 off due too their anniversary, if in the are again I may try again for apps and drinks.

We had our company Christmas dinner here. The food was outstanding... everyone loved what they had ordered. The service was great . They were great they didn’t rush us, most of the time the restaurants are on a time restriction when its close to Christmas to fit as many people in a day .. thank you for a wonderful enjoyable dinner ..

Drove 40 minutes for our anniversary dinner--worth the trek. The food was amazing, well thought out, interesting, and beautiful. The service was just as good; very helpful for first-timers. And to top it off, the staff signed a homemade anniversary card for us! We'll be returning for sure.

It's unfortunate that after moving into their new building, food prep and quality have dropped drastically. Service was top notch, and the bar was on point. The kitchen is suffering. It wasn't worth the price paid.

Dinner was excellent, my Wagyu strip was one of the best pieces of beef I’ve ever had. The wife had lamb neck ravioli which I was equally impressed with. Salad and soups were freshly prepared and wonderful in both presentation and flavor. Service was slightly lacking - I assume due to the newness of our server, there were some timely delays and a miss. I would not let that deter from a fantastic dining experience. Small, but tight cocktail menu - lots of mid range spirit selections. Enjoyed, will definitely try and make it that way again.

Our dinning experience was excellent, this was our first time at the new location, it is beautiful, the staff was very attentive as always. We had our daughter, who is a vegetarian, with us and the chef prepared a special vegetarian entree for her, which she raved about. We highly recommend this restaurant.

The martini’s were made just how we ordered them; our waitress, MaryAnn was cheerful, bright, knowledgeable & fun. The food was excellent, every bite was as good as the last and full of flavor. My filet mignon was melt in your mouth and my date had the pork porterhouse and it was the same. We will be going back again.

This was a destination meal for us and worth the drive -- all the way from western Kentucky. It is expensive (to our budget), but you absolutely get what you pay for here. Trust these two chefs. They know what they are doing. Our only hold back is that places like this that do nothing to absorb sound can get very loud, and that's not conducive to a good meal; we were lucky it was a quiet Sunday evening. They say they love art. Great! Hang some textiles on the walls to absorb sound, and do something so the ceiling doesn't echo the noise. Next time we are there, we will do the chef's tasting menu with wine pairing. Can't wait!

We took my daughter to the Mulefoot for her 15th birthday and it was excellent as usual! The food is prepared perfectly and the blend of flavors are amazing. We started with the bread baked there at the their bakery and it did not disappoint!! We had the rye and the sourdough with their homemade butter....I could live on just this bread but next was the Jowl bacon. If you are a bacon lover, this is a must!!! Next was their cut of the day and the pork was so juicy and flavorful!! My daughter liked it better than the filet mignon her boyfriend ordered! Lastly, we had dessert and their French Press coffee. A perfect ending to a tasty and satisfying meal with the most attentive service!! They even gave her a birthday card signed by the staff! I would eat here every day if I could!! Keep doing what you are doing!! We love it and the best part is that all the ingredients are grown and raised locally! Highly recommend!!! ❤️
