The meal was not very good. The soup was too salty and the salmon was a bit "wet." The Chocolate torte was fabulous. I can see why people rave about their desserts.

Great desserts. I've never actually had anything but the desserts here. The cakes are outstanding and a great way to end any night while in Rochester. There is a good selection of choices for dessert and I have had quite a few, combined with the many people I have taken here there has not been anything negative to say about... More

Excellent European food, calm classical music, professional and helpful waiter, outstanding desserts, altogether very pleasant atmosphere. We were lucky enough to choose this restaurant for dinner while passing Rochester on our trip. Were perfectly happy with the choice. Hope to be there again some day.

Haven't been to Phillips in awhile. After reading some reviews it seemed like things went downhill since last visit, several years ago. Base on past experiences took the wife there for her birthday today. Had Veal Marsala and Steak au Poivre. Food was outstanding, full of flavor and cooked perfectly. Service was great, nice wine list. Finished off with the... More

Dinner on 7/2/14 was outstanding as always. My husband had the poached salmon, which he loved, and I had the Thai chicken and scallops - yum! We both totally went over the top with the caramel pecan cheesecake for dessert and fresh coffee. I would call Phillips a hidden gem; it's not on a main road and is not in... More

I had a business lunch at Phillips European today. Of note their food is flavorful and creative. This is a local family owned business who gets it right. It's worth mentioning that I try to eat food with as little salt as possible. Sometimes when you ask the waiter or waitress they don't know what to say. Here the waiter... More

My wife's pasta was tasteless and watery. Steak over cooked despite being assured that "medium" had a pink center. Service was ok but waitress kept... More

It was my first time dining at this restaurant. First want to say thanks to Sean for being a knowledgeable and kind waiter. The food was terrific, and the presentation was fantastic as well. We started with the escargot which was the best. Followed by pasta with shrimp, and pasta with scallops. Delicious. As everyone says, the desserts are really... More

Restaurant was far from being filled, but we were seated in same area as a very large group of adults and children who were having only dessert. They were extremely loud and the children became restless and running around. They do have a separate room which would be ideal for a large group, especially one with young children. The noise...

We stopped in for dessert take-outs. We waited at the counter for service a little long (the place was busy), but it gave us time to make our choices. Nice, different desserts to chose from. A nice treat!
