Charming atmosphere with great food

We have visited Tavern58 on multiple business occasions. The staff has been very accommodating each time, we've never been rushed through a meal but the staff also knows how to not make the meal "drag on". I've also visited this restaurant with smaller parties (2-4) and have had similar, superb... read more

We were looking for something new and came across this place. We made reservations online which was nice, and our table was waiting for us upon arrival. We were instantly welcomed by a most pleasant server who spouted off the specials of the day, and then served us with our wine selection and an interesting bread assortment. For starters we... More

Very interesting menu with a lot of great selections. I don't eat meat but there were plenty of vegetarian options for me, and the service was excellent. Our waiter recommended several menu items (the open faced ravioli and a seafood special) which both turned out to be delicious. I highly recommend the classic mac and cheese! It's listed as an...

We visited Tavern 58 at Gibbs before, but choose this restaurant for our New Year's Eve dinner. Conveniently, we made our reservations online for 7PM and got a confirmation call that day. We have found their filet to have fabulous flavor and ordered it again. The steak was cooked perfectly and the mashed potatoes had great flavor. In the past,... More

We ate here before going to the Geva Theatre performance. The food was excellent and the staff was prompt and professional. Great pub menu and we absolutely loved our time here. When you visit try our favorite bacon wrapped pan seared scallops!

Visiting Rochester for the NYSMA convention. Your restaurant was highly recommended. I ordered the special of the night, which was mixed grilled seafood. The dish was cold and over salted. My husband and three others ordered the pasta bolgnese. When it arrived it was one big dish of mush. The pasta was so over cooked.

A long time favorite, Tavern 58 has long been our go to restaurant for a night out. For great steaks and seafood, delicious appetizers (try the 58 sampler), and a nice selection of beer and cocktails this is the place. On a nice summer night you can dine alfresco on the patio. Especially a favorite during Jazz Fest, there is... More

We went to tavern58 with a large group and were fairly disappointed. We waited 45 minutes for the waiter and waitress to take our orders and another 45 for any appetizers to come out. The food didn't come out at the same time so some of our party was eating for 15 minutes before the other half was served their... More

We ordered steaks. They were cooked to perfection. Our entire meal was wonderful. We enjoyed the measured pace of service. It allowed us to talk to each other and ebjoy the evening out. This is not a fast food in and out type of restaurant nor do we want it to be. We love going to a place to unwind,... More
