The Plum House is hard to miss on Monroe Avenue because the building is a solid plum purple on the outside. Inside, the sushi bar is on the left as you enter the restaurant and the main eating area is on the right. The tables are arranged for 2 or 4 people but larger parties can be easily... read more

What a fun experience we had here. I went with a friend and we enjoyed the Hibachi entrees as much as the dining experience. We both had the Hibachi Chicken. It came with a salad with a ginger dressing- it was a nice change from ordinary salad dressing. Dinner also came with a soup- which was Ok. The main course-... More

We had sushi at the Plum House on a Saturday night. it was average at best. Compared to other sushi joints they have a very limited selection of specialty rolls. We did try 2 of the specials they had this particular night and they were good. The place has a pleasant atmosphere and it should be said they were packed... More

Super food. That's it, no other place can compete with the Plum House. From the complementary petite cucumber salad, Miso soup, to the house specials and standard fare, it is the best in Rochester.

This place has great food and good service. Also it's one of the very few places in town that actually have reasonable prices for a glass of wine- $4.50!! Only complaint is the parking kinda stinks.

We had good service and good food. We got the platter for two lots of chef choices, and chef choice of rolls. It was sushi that was priced right. Would I return probably.

In the midst of my last review of Cali Rollin, I am in search of sushi! This establishment was fine. Ordered the sushi for two at chef's choice. They were not over the top, nor creative. The atmosphere was fine, the tables were too close together. It was warm which was nice.

The reason we went there because they offered a deal you pay$15 and get $30 worth of food. The sushi was good. Chicken teriaki was ok. But the server was like a robot no personality what so ever!!! The owners should defiantly look into that.

This is my favorite place to go for sushi in the Rochester area. The prices are reasonable, the sushi is delicious, and the waitstaff are great. You walk in the door and there is a huge fishtank, the sushi bar is to the left, and the tables are to the right. It's cozy and fills up quick on weekend nights,... More
