Mario's offers a nice selection of Italian food. I think the challenge at Mario's is that the food is inconsistent. I have enjoyed great meal there and then an average meal. I think the food is slightly overpriced because of this.

I've always enjoyed the food at Marios. It's very good. They make very good efforts. Reservations for 8 were accepted and confirmed. Seating was timely, within 15 minutes. It was not too crowded. Access to the buffet room is easy due to the generous space between tables. This also lends to privacy. There was some waiting in the buffet room,... More

I had been to Mario's several times a few years back and had been unimpressed with the service, food and prices, saying it would be awhile before I went back again. A friend recommended giving it another try, so I made the decision and a reservation. I joined their VIP club and received the choice of a free appetizer, bottle... More

Three girls went to Mario"s for dinner. The food was great, we had Spaghetti and Meatball (huge meatball), Chicken Parm. and Surf and Turf. The waitress Amy was very attentive to our every need (drinks. bread etc.) The dessert was delicious (Chocolate Cake ice cream and whipped cream) split 3 ways, an we all had enough. And on our way...

I was here for a wedding rehearsal dinner. Everything was very tasty, and the service was very attentive. I had a ribeye steak which was very flavorful, along with vegetables and mashed potatoes. The balsamic dressing for the salad was also very good.

My son was having a wedding and baby reception. The time was 11:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. We had about 45 people come in from all over. We had a healthy choice buffet. The food was absolutely delicious and everyone told me how nice everything was done. We had my son come in from China, friends from California, Connecticut and... More

This is a very good, suburban restaurant. While the address is Rochester, it is in the Brighton area...on a busy commercial road. Mario's was an excellent choice for our last dinner in NY. The place is large, nicely decorated. Despite the size and high ceilings, it was possible to have a dinner conversation with our friends. I think the 4... More

Took a group of 40 to a special celebration Sunday Brunch at the restaurant. The offerings at their Sunday Brunch could not possibly leave anyone without a multitude of options. We had two servers dedicated to our 4 tables of 10 and they did a superb job of clearing plates, providing drinks, and replenishing them as well. The management had... More

This is my favorite place for a good gluten free meal. I don't feel deprived of gluten after leaving here. One of my favorites is the GF chicken french. The pasta they use is a great substitution. They also have a great brunch on Sundays. Just remember if you are going for mimosas to go after noon.

A group of 9 of us in town for business, they all were eager to try Mario's from the commercials. I used to live in Rochester so I was very familiar with Mario's, people love it or hate it. I have to give credit to the excellent service, very good wine list, and my bruschetta appetizer was delicious. My entree,... More
