I have been to Richardson's many times in the past. I most recently went the week before Christmas with some family and friends. I LOVE this restaurant. The ambiance is very cozy and welcoming. We shared some appetizers, and I ordered the scallops as an entree. The lobster bisque appetizer was so rich and delicious. The scallops were cooked perfectly... More

This past weekend, I reserved a room for a dinner party honoring one of my physician colleagues. The room was perfect, with a quiet, warm atmosphere - and Laurie worked closely with me to make sure all my requests for table arrangements were set. Our waitress was also perfect: she judged just when to serve, and when to pause for... More

We like to eat in the Pub in the winter. The service is very attentive and personal, the food is top notch, and the wine list is very nice. They frequently have a local beer on tap. And their seasonal menu is delightful. One of our favorite Rochester restaurants.

A good place for a better meal in the Rochester area. The food was very good and the waitstaff accommodating. One off our party had allergy based dietary issues which were addressed with no problem by the kitchen. The wine list was broad and reasonably priced, however I would like to see more interesting selection "by the glass".

We have dined at the Canal House for 8 years and each experience exceeds the previous! We again enjoyed dinner there recently and every course was memorable! I had the lamb and my partner the duck, each were prepared expertly with appropriate side dishes to complement perfectly . The wine list is extensive and the waiter suggested the perfect pairing...

This was my first time going out for Thankgiving Dinner. I was able to make a reservation at Richardson's. It was a "Wonderful" experience. from the moment we enter the door. The staff was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was cozy and warm. To my surprise they had lovely menu options that had much more than the traditional turky dinner... More

Love dining here in the summertime alongside the canal. Can't get much scenic. Service always top notch and the food is great.

What a great find! This beautiful, historic Canal House is a lovely place to dine, and would be a lovely place to celebrate a special occasion. The food was outstanding, the service amazing, and the Host and Hostess of the House very welcoming! A very romantic spot, in beautiful Pittsford.

No matter what the season, Richardson's is a great place to go for an outstanding meal. Whether it is the summer on the patio with their grill menu or in the pub room in the Winter with seasonal fare you will never be disappointed. The service is always first rate and friendly. The menu changes frequently and will not disappoint.... More
