Excellent splurge restaurant when arriving in Rochester

While not a budget place by any means, the fish dishes at this restaurant were well prepared and the wine list is excellent. Located in the Doubletree at S. 2nd and Broadway.

The wonderful food and service; the ambience. It felt like a place to get into another world. Nice Wine List. There wasn't anything that I disliked.

No joke- their fish choices are great -plus they will prepare the choice any way you want. I love the Red Snapper and Tilapia. Mushroom Risotto is another favorite of mine. They have a fantastic deal for a quick lunch if you want that- about 3-4 specials of the day for $12.95. In and out in an hour. Can't beat... More

This was one of the best salmon dinners I have had. I am super picky about seafood-especially living on the coast. The salmon was prepared perfectly, with the right amount of crispy on the outside, but not dried out on the inside. Great selection of sauces to choose from. Our server was helpful with our meal selections. Very nice atmosphere.... More

I tried a number of things on the menu. Preparation and taste of food was good but prices are over the top. A salad can run $14. A walleye sandwich was just about the same price and serving size is average. It is a very busy restaurant and if you are not wanting room service, you may not get in... More

My wife and I treated a newly married couple to dinner at Pescara. My wife is a vegetarian trying to find some good food to eat in a restaurant specializing in fish! No problem, the waiter rose to the occasion and suggested a vegetable combo that my wife found delicious. We ordered a bottle of Cabernet which was truly enjoyable... More

They have a very affordable menu at lunch and weekends. $10 menu is great. Also love their Mouth watering Humus and their flat bread. You have to try it.

My favorite place to eat in Rochester!! They explained the menu & we followed our server's recommendations on how to have our food prepared & we're NOT disappointed! I've had halibut (best), swordfish, Chilean seabass, & salmon...all were brilliantly prepared!! Don't miss the smoked gouda hashbrowns! Plus, they are close to Mayo!! Pescara is how I treat myself after tons... More

We had the mussels, tuna sandwich, shrimp tacos, lobster bisque and walleye sandwich. They were all quite excellent and the service was very good too. Prices were reasonable for lunch. Portions were good sized as we even had leftovers. I recommend this place even though I'm usually not fond of restaurants in hotels as they have not always been great... More

The service was excellent. The servers as well as the people replenishing the buffet were excellent. The oatmeal pancakes and gouda hashbrowns were great. We enjoyed the large selection of fresh juice options. The french toast was ok, a bit hard. The specialty egg of the day was scrambled eggs with a white cheese and green beans. I originally thought... More
