My "go to" restaurant for comfort food

Right in the heart of Park Ave. Outdoor seating when the weather permits. Small inside but cosey...only reservations for 6 plus diners. Reasonable prices and main courses include a choice of unique salads. My favorite is the Farroush (cornish hen with amazing fresh herb seasoning) Enjoy!

Sinbads makes me think I am eating in NYC. The Mediterranean menu is authentic, the dishes freshly prepared. Our son and his partner live in the Manhattan but annoy duplicate the Sinbads experience there. Best vinaigrette in Rochester, but don't ask what the oil and vinegar are, even the wait staff doesn't know the closely kept secret. Prices are surprisingly... More

Didn't' know too much about this place and we were so pleasantly surprised by the wonderful food. I have never had a toasted pita, but this was by the best version ever! The humus and falafel were good too!

The toasted chicken pita is to die for! The meat is grilled yet so tender and the sauce is perfection. I try to get there for lunch regularly. On a nice day you can sit outside and enjoy the view on Park Avenue. Even if your taste in food is conservative, you will love this selection!

Throughout the years, Sibad's authentic Lebanese food (my roots go back to Lebanon and I am very familar with the cusine) from appetizers to main dishes have been freshly prepared and flavorful without exception. The menu is broad and suits all appetites, and the atmosphere (outside seating along Park Avenue) is pleasant and suitable for lingering. It is a dependable... More

I adore, love love and more looove Sinbads. I have been there multiple times, and hands down it is one of the beast authentic mediterranean restaurants in the area. The prices are reasonable, and my personal favorite, the falafels! I have yet to eat a better falafel. The wait staff is eh at best, but don't let that ruin the... More

My son and I enjoyed a delicious meal at this restaurant. Massive portions but excellent quality ingredients. Very wide and varied menu - something to cater for all tastes. The restaurant was busy with a mix of people, ranging from couples to families with young children etc. Great service too.

Friends and I recently visited Sinbad's while in Rochester, and it was a truly excellent spot to grab lunch--especially on the day we went because the weather was nice enough for us to sit outside in the front patio area. The menu is pretty extensive, dishes are very flavorful, and prices are quite good overall. If I lived in Rochester,... More
