I heard that they had a change of ownership but everything is still great. Nice selection on the menu, food cooked perfectly, service excellent. The bonus is that they have live music that starts early so you can eat before 7 pm and still enjoy it. They have great daily bar specials, happy hour deals on appetizers. We have spent... More

We were two Canadian couples in Rochester for a weekend of touring, shopping and exploring. We came upon Bistro 135 when trying to find a good place to have dinner. We were seated right away, in a little dining area off to the side across from the bar. My friend commented on how nice it was to be able to... More

A lovely jazz club tucked away in East Rochester. We dined early on a week night and enjoyed the live music along with our meal. The food was cooked to perfection. My risotto was outstanding. Service was excellent. An enjoyable evening at a hidden gem!

This is a jazz club in little East Rochester, NY. It offers jazz during the dinner hour, very nice. When my wife's dinner arrived it appeared nice until she took a bite and there was a substantial amount of a gritty substance in her scallops. She sent the meal back and had it replaced with a new meal. There was... More

I've been here for an anniversary dinner with my husband and now with a couple of friends for a girls' night out. Each time, the food has been perfect. I had the filet both times and it was cooked perfectly and so tender. I also had spinach risotto which is probably the best I've ever had. There was live music,... More

We were there last Saturday night for dinner with friends - and it was a very pleasant experience. The only thing that would have made it so much better was that if the band did not have a horn section - at times it was glaringly loud. We were four people at a table and had to yell at each...

On August 9th with a party of six people..... The food was okay but the service and attitudes of the waitstaff was deplorable. There was a young man server who was walking around the restaurant swearing. He was calling a supervisor/manager (not sure) very negative ethnic slurs and calling him an 'old man' in earshot of many, many customers. We... More

This was our second visit to Bistro 135. The 1st visit was outstanding. We went on a Friday night and saw the Vanessa Mangione Quartet and had great food and service. So much so we recommended the place to our friends. We went back on Monday July 7th and were thoroughly disappointed. At 5pm there were only about 8 people... More

We go here often for happy hour specials at the bar. Prices are great & so is the food. We've also been for dinner; food is also great, but prices aren't as good.

Had wonderful first time experience at Bistro 135. Must admit based on reviews from others our expectations were lowered, but we walked away extremely satisfied and glad we found another go to restaurant. Our reserved table for two was ready for us when we arrived at 7:30. We were on the upper floor in the main room, noted there were... More
