Comfortable restaurant, most options [except for a lost all of the desserts] available gluten free. Quiet atmosphere.

A nice quiet environment with good food. Do not eat here without trying one of their desserts! Definitely better than any bakery around!

Every time I get back to my hometown of Rochester, I make it a point to visit Phillips as often as possible. Never had even an iffy meal there... and, if you're into desserts, you're in for a treat. The owners, Ellie and Stacey Phillips are welcoming hosts, and the service is impeccable, but not overdone. Both the luncheon and... More

I don't go to this restaurant often ... and I remember from past visits that everything about the place, is perfect. My most recent visit, not so much. For the quality of the place, I would expect cloth napkins ... or at least high quality paper napkins ... I was disappointed that for $25 meals, I get a thin napkin.... More

I have been here for coffee and dessert a couple of times and loved it!! They have a wide range of tortes and all types of desserts. I decided to give their food a try and was not disappointed. If you haven't tried them for dinner you should!

Phillips European has a wonderful variety of desserts and good coffee. However, as a restaurant I rate the menu and cuisine on average with a dressy diner. On a recent foursome outing to Phillips, we were seated promptly and served well, but the food was far below anticipation. Our bread was served fresh, but the butter patties were cold and... More

Phillips European is a gem in the middle of a strip mall in Henrietta...very unexpected. The food is pricy and good but what is really impressive is the coffee and dessert. Having travelled around the world, I can genuinely say that it is one of the best places in the world!! A perfect place for a special night or just... More

Have been to Phillips many times over the last 15-20 years. Hands down my favorite "fine dining" spot in the area. Both my parents liked it very much too & ate there often… and my dad had very demanding standards for restaurants. In his later years he became quite a discerning critic and always took guests there because he knew... More

went there after the dinner. Got two pieces of cake. One is called venese and the other is desert special cheese cake. I would say the desert special is really good. Want to go there again.

Phillips is an excellent restaurant with delicious food and fine service. The dessert choices were spectacular and we truly enjoyed our choice of the raspberry almond torte.
