Went for wine and lunch; and as always does not disappoint! Had a lovely Rose wine, mussels are always a favorite. The atmosphere is casual elegance to me, friendly staff, nice outdoor patio. Wish I lived closer.

First time visiting Rochester and had dinner here. Very good calamari, excellent endive salad and steak. Creme brûlée tasty! Atmosphere was nice and service good and very attentive.

Some of the best pancakes ever. Sunday brunch at 2 Vine is fairly new. It is simply outstanding and surprisingly not very crowded. The service is great. Our server, Stephany, was very attentive, personable and professional. Highly recommend this for a great Sunday brunch, especially the lemon ricotta pancakes.

We have long been fans of the food from 2 Vine. I am particularly fond of their signature breaded chicken cutlet with arugula salad. Within the last couple of months they have started serving Sunday brunch which has delighted me beyond words as we often look for a good place for breakfast/brunch on a Sunday morning. Like the restaurants in... More

We have been to 2Vine three times. The first visit was marked by rude and slow service. The second visit was ok. The third time was the last time. Despite having reservations and not being that busy, we were seated in the bar area which is very loud. A heads up that we would be sitting there would have been... More

Looking for a nice Restaraunt to celebrate my sister-in-laws birthday, we decided on 2 Vine located in the East End Neighborhood of Rochester NY. Having been there a number of times over the past few years we felt confident that our choice of venue would provide for a special evening. Unfortunately this was not the case. After having already been... More

A group of oldsters met for lunch. The selections were the whole gamut from beet salad to crab cakes to burger to lobster salad. All pronounced their lunch beautifully presented and very tasty. Service is fine and the outdoor ambiance is pleasant.

We have been the 2 Vine many times and love the outdoor patio. Quiet and comfortable. Waiter was accomodating and pleasant. Quite surprised by the much too expensive wine list, that began at $40.00! Had to ask whether there was a reasonable house choice and we took the only red, a Cab. for $36.00 that was fine. Really should have... More

This place is the real deal -- amazing drinks, excellent food. Plenty pricey for the area, but worth every penny. Always a memorable meal. A fantastic cheese plate, and a wonderful outdoors eating area. Lovely flowers outside the windows -- makes me feel like I'm in Europe. I still wish they had more in the way of vegetarian protein, but... More

Went specifically for their brunch, however it is a menu offering and not a buffet. Although limited, the selections were flavorful. We were told by the waiter that brunch may not be offered much longer at 2 Vines as it hasn't proved a success.
