Very pricey, but absolutely delicious and fantastic service. The server was very helpful with choices and pairing with wine for those of us weak in that area.

We had lunch in the dining room. The Server was all smiles and willing to make our stay as enjoyable as he could and with a sense of humor. The food and drink is always enjoyable. There is a larger bar with a larger selection of wine and spirits. As the name implies this is more of a fresh fish... More

We came for the breakfast buffet, and for $12 including all drinks, it seemed like a pretty good deal for a buffet. There was a nice variety of meats, eggs, and potatoes. You can also order french toast and pancakes to order. We ordered the oatmeal pancakes, but they were still a bit runny on the inside and not fully... More

I debated where to eat my last night in Rochester and finally settled on Pescara. As a solo, I was able to get right in by choosing to sit at their community table. The decor of the restaurant was very nice. The outside patio didn't look so inviting as it sits right on a busy street. My server was very... More

My wife and I decided to go out for dinner at Pescara on a Wednesday night. It was a nice night and the patio was open so we chose to eat out there. On the patio, you're sitting literally next to broadway and consequently you constantly have traffic noise in the background. They had a gentleman on the patio named... More

So my husband and I are in Rochester for a wedding and I decided to reserve at Pescara because of all the good reviews. This was not true in our case. We were greeted by two young men at the entrance. After a five minute wait we were shown to our table. No pulling out of the chair or anything.... More

These guys serve up fish tacos for the Thursday street fair in Rochester. For $8 you get one big fish taco. It's not alot for $8, but it is a pretty damn good taco. I would eat here again!

This restaurant inside of the Double Tree hotel is great but it's very expensive. You will have a great experience as long as you don't mind paying for it.
