Delightful surprise -- more a fine dining experience than pub experience, despite the name!

A reservation snafu at another restaurant resulted in our giving of 4 this place a try last minute on a Saturday night. They had a diverse menu and gluten free options for most dishes.

The ambiance and food was very good. We were a party of four, and all were delighted. I am looking forward to going back again.

For full disclosure, my father worked at the Pub under the previous ownership, so I've seen it evolve over the decades. I've never had a bad meal there, nor have I ever had poor service or any complaints. The current ownership has paid true homage to the history of the place and clearly values the loyalty of the clientele. The... More

Friends and family met for dinner there. Despite our large party (10 people), service was very good. The menu is a bit minimal, but reasonably priced items make up for it. No rushing by servers. The dining room is dimly lit (which I prefer), giving a warm cozy feel to the place. We will return there again for sure.

With consistency comes trust and expectations. My wife and I come to the Park Ave Pub regularly – and they always deliver what we feel is one of the best dining experiences you can get in Rochester - simply put they never let us down. There are just so many things that play into how one feels about a place... More

I love it when you visit a restaurant that pays such great attention to detail. Such is the case with Park Ave. Pub. This restaurant was our Valentine date venue selection this year, and we were so pleased. With the ambiance, the service and maybe most importantly, the food. This is a small, cozy bistro-like place tucked in to the... More

We're a young couple looking for a nice place for a date night since it's been a while, and we decided to try this restaurant. At first we were worried when we entered, because me and my girlfriend felt we were the youngest couple there by far and I felt under dressed. But we were greeted with extremely friendly service...

We visited this restaurant on a whim and had a very enjoyable dinner. The wine selection was adequate and the food was very good. The restaurant is small but comfortable. I would recommend reservations as there are not a lot of tables. We did not have a reservation, but arrived at 5 on a Friday night. We were able to... More

Good food, great attention and better service. Furthermore, it's CHEAP. Salmon was nice and beer fantastic. They have the coldest Sam Adams in NY. Don't forget to visit this place when you are in Rochester
