Sunday nights over the past 2 summers, my boyfriend and I find ourselves eating delicious appetizers and sipping on perfectly shaken martinis. Since we are both in the restaurant business, we never get to experience Friday and Saturday nights out - but a Sunday night at Tapas always feels like the nights we miss out on! Elissa is the best... More

Spent the weekend in Rochester with some friends and we were looking for a new place with music. We found Tapas 177 and what a delight. Old store front type building with the main eating, bar and music area downstairs, OK this could be interesting. We sat in a cozy outside area where a 3 piece jazz combo was playing.... More

After a long day at the office a small group of us (7) went and was promptly seated on the backyard patio. Excellent service and a great small plates selection.

Tapas 177 is a favorite of my husband and I. We returned there to celebrate my husband's birthday on Saturday. The area where the restaurants sits in not the greatest at night, but they do have valet parking. They charge $5 which is a bit of a turnoff. The bar is on the main floor. They have wonderful concoctions for... More

While the neighborhood is a bit run down and rough, it is worth coming here. The restaurant is great...it looks like it is in a very old building and what they have done to the place makes it look great. The seating is in the basement or in an open air courtyard...each very tastefully done. Our waitress was fantastic. She... More

The food was decent and enjoyable along with the atmosphere. However I do not understand what the hype is all about I have been to much better restaurants in the rochester area. My friend thought the quail was dry and I thought the scallops where gritty. I will go back with friends and family... On their request not mine.

Just walking around this place is a tremendous experience. Had dessert and coffee on a bit of a whim and it was pretty awesome and I highly recommend. Heading back for dinner next week which im pretty excited about. I can see some people thinking it is expensive in these reviews but i disagree. When you factor in the quality... More

We hadn't been to Tapas 177 for a few years and were lured back Thursday night by our WXXI MemberCard which was about to run out for the year. Overall we really enjoyed our experience. The basement dining room has that shabby-chic vibe going with some nice music playing. On a warmer evening the courtyard would have been a perfect... More
