We dislike nothing!!! well, maybe the coffee, but then again, were coffee snobs. The buffet is always wonderful, assortment of dishes, fresh fruit, pastries, and if you can't find something they offer pancakes and waffles special order. We tried the oatmeal pancakes and they were delicious. Been there many times, and never fails to delight us.

They specialize in fish and seafood, so those are great options. They have a few fresh fish options daily. Preparations and sauces are up to the diner. Simple pan seared, grilled, broiled, etc. They do have fresh oysters and, while they sometimes aren't "ocean fresh", they are still very good. Don't overlook their steaks...maybe the best in town. Sides are... More

The food seemed freshly prepared and they were very accommodating with food allergies and had a gluten free menu

My wife and I recently snuck away for a lunch at Pescara. Each course of our meal was better than the previous one. We both had seafood that had been shipped in fresh. The preparation and presentation of our meals were outstanding. We highly recommend this restaurant to visitors and residents of Rochester.

we stayed at doubletree and ordered room service so I'm assuming it's from this restaurant which is in the lobby. Ordered cup of soup and dessert. The soup was heavenly. Just wish it wasn't $5 for like 4 spoonfuls of soup :0. For 2 cups soup and 2 desserts our bill was ridiculous -- read the fine print cus they... More

Let me start by saying that I have eaten here 5 times since November 2014. The last visit on March 30th was the WORST! The waitress began by spilling both our glasses of water, one on my date's lap. She used a dirty rag to clean, thus smearing the table. Next, the wine glasses were served in dirty stemware...really? Salad,... More

Very helpful staff and excellent food and service. Truly one of the best places in Rochester. A bit pricy at $150 for 2 of us (with 2 drinks).
