Tucked away in the city is this little restaurant. Classy, and comfy. Great bar, feels like an English pub. The food is so good! Well prepared and well presented by attentive servers. Its not a huge place, but it is perfect for those smaller special occasions and for business alike. If you want some romance, or just an awesome meal,... More

My wife and I came to this restaurant for our 29th Anniversary, we were told the atmosphere and food is perfect for this type of occasion. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is in an older building with an older feel to it. It was very clean and the staff, very polite, they were very mindful of our table as... More

Definitely a place to go for a special dinner! The menu changes with the season and the service is impeccable. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it for an anniversary celebration. Reservations recommended on the weekends. Enjoy!

Love the food and service. Great dining area. Always wonderful innovative menu and bringing in French chefs periodically is a nice touch

One of the best restaurants in Rochester. We had the baked Brie, very nice presentation and plenty of food with the fruit, bread and cheese. The beet salad and the spinach and quail salad were both tasty, she didn't care for the pepper on the goat cheese, but the rest was delicious and the quail was perfect. She had the... More

I'm lucky - I've had the pleasure of dining in a lot of fantastic restaurants. Rooney's is a fine establishment, and the food's tasty. We had the lamb and the duck - both tasty. Appie wasn't terrific, but the ambience and staff made up for it :) Also time spent at the bar after dinner was also excellent. Definitely a... More

We've been here before for special occasions and always enjoyed it. We both got the Beef Tenderloin and it was excellent. I don't like beef at all red or bloody and most restaurants under or over cook it. I asked for Medium and it was perfect! I do think their prices should include salad - menu is a little pricey...

Stopped in for a dinner date night with my wife. The food was excellent, the service was too. The restaurant was a little dated but the food more than made up for it! We will be back for sure.

Been here twice. Was in no way dissapointed with any aspect. The ambience is clearly one of the best of any restaurant in Rochester. Lace tablecloths, wood paneled walls, real fireplace, quaint enough to address your individual needs and seasoned enough to have a very nice selection of entrées and specials that ate unique to Rochester. I had the rabbit... More

We really like Rooney's and try to attend very year when they have the chef in from France. I experimented with the Veal stew. Wish they couild have been a little more generous with the veal. Not much meat. Thank goodness my wife got the lamb chops and shared. Steak tartare was good. Excellent service.
