The Owl House

Absolutely delightful restaurant in Rochester, NY. Lovely old house has been turned into a wonderful eatery, full of gorgeous art work and friendly staff. The food and drink are excellent, with a nice variety.

I went to Owl House expecting it to be a nice restaurant based on previous reviews. To my surprise, it was a tiny house looking restaurant and much, much more casual than I expected. Both my boyfriend's and my meal were just average. The meal was overly sweet to the point where it wasn't enjoyable to eat anymore. On top... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is interesting, creative and well prepared. If you're looking for vegetarian or vegan options this is the place to go in Rochester. Good beer and wine selections as well. Always pleasing wait staff too!

The Owl House always has an imaginative menu with a range of options for vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike. Our visit on Father's Day meant a special all day brunch menu that did not disappoint. The meatloaf eggs benedict was the standout, but the chicken (or tofu) and waffles was also quite tasty. Burgers were big and enjoyably messy. The... More

We ate at the Owl House for the first time and we were surprised by some of their dishes and how good they were. Their menu has a vegetarian focus but lots of other options - one thing we had was the flank steak which was very good. Our daughter had tacos, which she liked and that looked good enough... More

My two friends and I decided to try brunch at the Owl House. We already really enjoyed it for dinner for all their delicious vegetarian, vegan, and locally grown dishes. Brunch did not disappoint! We got three different dishes, and periodically rotated them so we all got to enjoy them! From delicious French toast to the One Way Ticket breakfast... More

This quaint eatery offers a wonderful vegan menu, and a delightful selection of daily specials. We've been to this region on many occasions, and for the health conscious person, this is seemingly the best place! Yummy!

I had the Studley Dudley with a side of Breakfast Potatoes. Great on all fronts! Get there early for brunch as it seems to fill up quickly!

Friends has raved about the unique style of cooking and creative food here. We were disappointed when stopping for lunch one day. The decor is very drab and dark, almost like a dive bar in some ways. We were seating right next to the kitchen and it looked like it was not the cleanest one in the world, but appearances... More

Personally i really want to like the owl house a lot. But they're just missing the mark for me. Friendly staff for sure!! The food was even good. But for the price I paid, it wasn't worth it to go again. I was hungry within the hour. Plus drinks, while delicious, are pricey. Cauliflower wings are worth it though.
