We were a party of five looking for a place for dinner at the last minute. They accommodated us without any trouble. We all enjoyed our meal selections. The staff was there when needed, but not noticed when not. Overall a good experience. I can recommend Tavern 58 for a nice meal!

Enjoyed dinner with family from out of town. Nice choices for vegan appetite, excellent meatballs and hangar steak. Eclectic background music but not so loud so we could all converse. Wait staff was great and was knowledgeable about items on menu. Can't wait to go back! t

My husband and I had the Tavern style schnitzel. The pork was thin and tough. The coating was under sauteed Panko with burnt edges. The accompanying German potato salad and apple chutney were miniscule servings. The waiter kept urging us to order more sides, drinks and desserts. Our grandson had an angus burger, which was fairly good. The waiter tried... More

Have visited Tavern 58 several times -- with friends, business colleagues, and with my other half... Every time has been nothing short of sublime. Granted, the decor is not exactly the trendiest, but they make up for it with an inventive and frankly delicious menu. I would recommend their cocktails, soups, pastas and steaks. (For my money, their steaks are... More

The team at Gibbs is focussed on customer service in every aspect. I am the Manager of a hockey team that was in town for a tournament. I called the restaurant to see if they could accommodate us on Saturday afternoon. They were not normally open at 3pm but volunteered to open early to accommodate our team. We had 35+... More

I have been here once before, I love this place. I had the Elk chop special this time, it was amazing. The dry rub they used so enhanced the flavor of the meat without overpowering it. As before, the service was great. I got there a little early which was nice, the place filled up as I was finishing. I... More

Lots of whiskey to taste if you are around for St. Patty's day, Free parking. In City, don't worry about location. Can be before or after Eastman performances.

My husband and I were in Rochester for a conference + decided to try Tavern 58 after reading the Trip Advisor reviews. In short, we had an amazing dinner! I booked the reservation with Ryan, who was super accomodating (even when I called again to change the time). Adam, our server, was very friendly, knowledgeable + attentive. Small but crowded...

This restaurant is one of our go-to places in Rochester when we want a great meal. My husband and I dine here every couple months, and every time we eat here the food is excellent.

Had a drink at the bar before we were seated. The drinks were made excellent and made by a very friendly bartender. Once we were seated at our table we were again greeted by a friendly wait staff.
