Great buffet on Sunday

Love the buffet on Sunday. The entrees are above average quality with a plethora of choices. I love the pasta bar with your choice of sauce. The shredded pork meat sauce is delicious. Really nice and clean inside. Very comfortable booths. Only thing I would change would be adding a free glass of... read more

Mario's has to be one of the better restaurants in Rochester. Huge, roomy restaurant and great service! Miles is a great waiter. Have to recommend the Parmigiano Board as an appetizer, and the Delmonico steak with the Mario's version of french fries!

We have been to Mario's for brunch many times, but last Sunday we brought a large family group,complete with a toddler and two children. Everyone was thrilled not only with the fantastic food, but the attentive service. Mario's brunch was a highlight of this family visit.

I was a attending a private party, three big tables in a private room, so I never saw the full menu. The place has pretty dark lighting. It is quite large. The hostess accompanied me to the location of our party. The food was really exquisite, and I'm from Utica, NY, where Italian restaurants reign supreme! The waiters and assistants... More

We visited Mario's for my 30th birthday and our 2nd wedding anniversary celebration. We had a wonderful dinner...soup for a starter, dinner serving sizes were perfect, food was served hot and prompt, wait staff was great! Music was peaceful, lighting was romantic, grounds of the restaurant were highly maintained, beautiful landscaping, easy parking. Our waiter also gave us a free... More

Had a business dinner here recently. Our Server was excellent - very attentive. The online menu does not reflect the current menu - disappointing as there were several entrees listed that peaked the group's interest - only not to find them offered. Dinner selections were across the board - chicken dish - two different seafood dishes and a traditional spaghetti... More

I went in with high expectations due to several recommendations. The service was excellent, but the food was not up to the level I had expected. The warm olives were bland and the grilled calamari was overly charred, to the point of occasionally tasting burnt. The marinara for the spaghetti and meatballs had no zest and was not as good...

I had been to Mario's several times before for dinner, but this was the first time for Sunday brunch. Absolutely perfect in every way. Waitresses (we had two) were wonderful. It was my husband's birthday and they made him feel important and special. The selections on the brunch offering were wonderful. A carving station with beef, pork, lamb. Eggs benedict... More

There can not be any better place to enjoy your Easter Brunch than at Mario's! Every kind of carving station, omelets station desserts, salads, etc... Book ahead since this is one of Rochester's best!
