Purposely stopped here tonight for a draft beer, thinking a pub would offer this. Unfortunately - no. Hubbie settled for a bottled Sam Adams. Sat at a little table outside on Park Ave - eating outside in summer is a highlight in Rochester!! He had the chicken and sausage sauté - good asparagus and cream sauce, chicken was tough. I... More

First impressions are important and my first impression of this restaurant was great. We asked to be seated outside as the weather allowed it. The waitress gave us menus and asked what we would be drinking. We found that the restaurant offered a three course meal for $25 so we decided to give it a try. The appetizer was probably... More

I dined here twice recently during my week in Rochester, and wish it wasn't a 20 hour flight from home to get back there! Food of both evenings was fantastic- my first visit I had the Sunday special of steak with a crab cake - the best I've tasted, served with fresh vegetables, and followed with peanut butter pie for...

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 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 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
