The food and service was exactly what we were looking for. A day museum walking around built an appetite for a very good burgers all around. The pizza was very good as well, the garlic & rosemary fries were a hit. Highly recommend stopping for a meal.

A small restaurant in Village Gate that is easily accessible and central. I will admit, it is a bit loud as the place has poor acoustics, but the food is phenomenal. Excellent burgers, delicious pizzas and creative meals that leave your palette wanting more. Check it out the next time you're looking for a new place, who knows, it may... More

We absolutely love the Gate House. My husband almost always gets a burger (but not the same one twice) and I go for the pizza! They have so many varieties of each-- it's our favorite foods, but all grown up. We've had other entrees and everything has been wonderful. I enjoy the wine selection as well ;) The servers and...

If you're aiming for great food and don't care about the company you're keeping, then Gate House is for you. They have one of the best veggie burgers in town (available in multiple incarnations), their salads are wonderful (with their delicious cheese-filled breadsticks), and there are wonderful individual pizzas. They also have a number of great appetizers (e.g., Eggplant “French... More

This small restaurant in the artistic community of Rochester NY is a hidden gem. It is difficult to see from the road and is nestled in a converted factory / mill building complex. A popular local place, you should call ahead for reservations as the number of available seats often is far less than the number of people trying to... More

First and for most I've read people complain about the noise... um hello, it's a large open space with a busy bar and an open kitchen... it's not suppose to be a quiet romantic restaurant! I actually love the atmosphere, even on a weekday the place is busy, so that should tell you something! The servers are great and Lannie... More

We visited Gate House Cafe on a recent Saturday evening. The restaurant is in an area city that is always trying to be hip and popular but has come and gone over the years. Village Gate, where this restaurant is located, has several restaurant surrounding a courtyard like area. The trees were in peak bloom and each restaurant offers outdoor... More

We recently had dinner at the Gate House Cafe and our initial reaction to the food and especially the service was very pleasant. But as the place became more crowded during the dinner hour conversation became impossible. The men at the table next to us were literally shouting to hear each other. The sirachi, lime glazed salmon was delicious and... More

My wife and I were very pleased with our meal at the Gate House in Village Gate. The menu had catchy names that were geo friendly/appropriate for our local and the ingredients were all thoughtful and enthusiastically interesting. We shared a pizza with grilled veggies and a salad with seared tuna--that was cooked perfectly, thank you very much! The interior/ambiance... More
