I was looking at the menu in the window of this restaurant when a total stranger approached me to say the food was delicious. I decided to give it a try and ended up with one of the best dining experiences I've had in ages. Everything I ordered was delicious and beautifully presented, and the service was outstanding. My highest... More

My husband and I dined at Park Ave while on a business trip. We were pleasantly surprised at the atmosphere, friendliness of the staff (including Scott an owner) and the excellent menu. We both had a beet salad which was fresh and delicious. I chose the special fish dish (swai topped with a crab/herb topping) and my husband had the... More

We were looking for a nice place to have dinner in Rochester and found this place on TripAdvisor. We are very glad we went. The service was attentive and pleasant. We were treated like "regulars" from the time we walked in. The food was exceptional. After tasting the broccoli and shrimp chowder as an appetizer, another member of our party... More

For an intimate, friendly atmosphere this is just the place. None the of nouveau cliche that you find in those places just try too hard. The food is great, the staff attentive and it seems to have its regulars and ones who will become regulars.....why stop anywhere else?

I have been to the pub three times. Never once was I disappointed. The drinks are as reasonable as any restaurant in Rochester and finally poured. The service is impeccable with a staff that is clearly comfortable with one another and work together as a well oiled machine. I am glad this is fairly tucked away on the street and... More

The food at the Park Avenue Pub is always good. The service is always outstanding. If you want a cozy restaurant where you are treated well without being smothered, this is a great place to go. NIce wine list too.

First the gin and tonic was above wonderful! Then I had the three-course special, of which each course was fabulous beginning with the bisque, continuing with the pork tenderloin, and ending with the frozen peanut butter pie. Definitely will return
