Just about everyone I know loves this restaurant. They love the fresh seafood, the elegant atmosphere, the professional staff, and the overall sense for the dining experience. However, I only go there when someone else is going to pay the bill and when I've already had something to eat. Personally, I find the cost of dining here to be excessive... More

We had the scallops with truffles and they were over the top amazing! Best scallop dish I've ever had! The oysters were fantastic as well! I would definitely go again.

We hit up Pescara for our anniversary dinner this year as we were both hungry for seafood. GREAT seafood and fresh options most days. We tend to only go here on special occasions as it's a bit more spendy. They have a good wine list too. They have amazing breakfast here - their gouda hashbrowns are amazing!!

We went there because of trip advisor rating and were not disappointed. Th lobster bisque and scallops were the best we ever had. But what set this place apart was the caring friendly wait staff. They provide over the top service.

We had eaten at Pescara before and I thought it was a restaurant worth a detour. I'm delighted to report that it still is. It specializes in seafood and they prepare it superbly. We began with their signature lobster bisque which is the best I've ever had. It has a creamy, perfectly lobster-flavored base with some lobster meat in it... More

Really enjoyed our visit to Pescara. The food and service were excellent. If you like Lobster Bisque, you gotta try their version. They offer a nice selection of fresh seafood and nice wines as well. Everything is ala-carte , but the sides are large enough to share. Nice location on Broadway in the DoubleTree hotel. Well worth having to get... More

I have only had the brunch at Pescara and I have to say it is hands down, the best brunch in Rochester. You get a brunch buffet and a mimosa or screwdriver included for under 20 bucks. The food is fantastic, especially the smoked salmon rolls, top it off with a chocolate tort for desert and you are good to... More

We go to Pescara several times a year. There are some entrees that are fabulous, including most of the seafood dishes. However, I have yet to eat a steak there that I could finish. Most of the steak is tough and gristly and I can only eat about a third of it before I give up. This happened three visits... More

The wife and I tried a variety of dishes. The prawn,watermelon, and jalapeño cornbread combo was incredible. Endive salad was to die for. Every dish hit its mark. The service was stellar, our waiter was on the spot, informative, and sociable. Make it a point to stop if you're in Rochester.

This restaurant is in the Double Tree Hotel. Modern décor; looks high end. Fish is their specialty, but nothing imaginative or special. Quality is hit or miss. I've boycotted the restaurant since they served me old/bad mussels. When I complained the server he didn't offer to replace them or talk to the chef (so perhaps he could pull them off... More
