Been twice, during visits to University of Rochester. This is a reasonably-priced restaurant with American cuisine with a little extra. I had blackened salmon with horseradish sauce, and a lovely green salad with crumbled blue cheese. Pinot Noir was a great complement. The bread is hot and crusty. My companions had pork, pasta and chicken, and beef. The service is... More

This was a decent place. Food was good, not great. I appreciated that I was allowed to substitute a different salad, just pay a little extra and still take advantage of the three course special. And that's truly a deal, quite a few options and both my husband's shrimp and my salmon were good(but my salmon was nowhere close to... More

I took advantage of the $25 prix fixe menu, and it did not disappoint. Start with some of the best bread I've eaten in years, hot out of the over with a wonderful crunchy crust. The prix fixe menu has 3 courses including 3 choices for the appetizer and dessert and many choices for the main course. the appetizer, the... More

The food is outstanding! They have dependable favorites like crab cakes and filet mignon as well as daily homemade soups and specials. The bar has a great group for friendly regulars that chat with anyone who stops in. The service is wonderful and Scott the owner greets everyone with a smile and a handshake. The outdoor seating seals the deal.

We have probably walked by this restaurant hundreds of times and just never tried it. A friend suggested we meet there for dinner and we soon realized how much we had been missing. It truly is a "hidden gem" on Park Avenue. For the entire evening, we were impressed with the outstanding service we received. It was flawless, strong and... More

This is by far one of my favorite restaurants in Rochester! The crab stuffed sole that is often on special is spectacular. The wines are quite nicely chosen and I always enjoy my dinners at the Park Ave Pub. I recommend this to anyone except perhaps people that are on a diet. The softest can be very rich yummy and...

Great food, ambiance and service. I'm a fan. I stop in occasionally after work and always find a friendly lively crew at the bar and good food and drinks.

From the minute you step into the door, you know you're in for a special treat. The ambiance is wonderful and everyone greeted us with smiles. We were treated on our first visit as if we came in every week. It worked, we have been back many times since our first experience. The menu is varied and they offer a... More

The Park Ave Pub was one of my favorite restaurants back in the 1970’s; on a recent visit to Rochester, I decided to resurrect some nostalgia and revisit the place. I am very glad that I did. The feel is much the same as it was back then; a small, intimate, welcoming neighborhood place for drinks and dinner. Our dinner... More
