Went to Sunday brunch with another couple. Very good selection at a reasonable price. We went later in the afternoon and the selection and quantity were good. Kept bringing food out fresh.

This place rocks. The food is delicious. service is attentive, properly timed, and priced reasonably. The atmosphere is also low key, elegant, and upscale. Try the lobster Mac and Cheese! The fried spaghetti sticks are addicting,

If you want a moderately priced, excellent dinner,then join people at Mario's Restaurant in Rochester, New York. The service is always gracious, the food is very well prepared and presented and the wait staff are always very courteous and pleasant. It is moderately priced, but for a special occasion, it is well worth the money. I highly recommend it.

We arrived on time, with reservations, and were seated immediately. Service was very good. We did not lack for anything. Wine list is extensive. We chose a nice red and everyone enjoyed it. Food was very good, I had the Chilean Sea Bass, as did a couple other people. Brussel sprouts were delicious. No complaints. Everyone in our group had... More

We went with another couple on a cold winter night. The crab and lobster bisque was outstanding. Two of us had the veal parmigiana and it was so so. Too much breaking and a little over cooked. The service was very good.

My first and last time for this over rated restaurant. Had a retirement brunch for my sister-in-law with 12:00 noon reservations and were seated well over a half hour later. It was obvious that restaurant staff were a over whelmed and not very unorganized. We were taken to what could be best described as a "long" wooden table which we... More

Treated my daughter, her husband and his parents to the Christmas Eve buffet. The restaurant was very crowded (obviously a sell-out for the evening) but we were quickly seated at 6:45 PM, only 15 minutes later than our 6:30 PM reservation. The buffet offered ample selection, but several of the items were lacking in the quality I've come to ecxpect... More

I've been to Mario's for Sunday brunch several times. I can't convince my family to skip church to go to brunch, but on the Sunday following a niece's wedding, we all went to Mario's for brunch. Just by chance, we snagged the private room to the left of the entrance. It is a cozy room with lovely decor. It really... More

We had a 7:30 reservation and we were not seated until 8:10pm. No explanation given. Very poor service continued throughout the meal. Food was decent enough. Large portions. Won't be returning and would not recommend.

My company has there party here every year and it's great. The food is always hot and great...appetizers are good also. Staff is very friendly and prompt always can be found if you need something that's not in your reach. Look forward to it.
