No one is dining here right now. The phone is being answered by an automated message saying that the restaurant is closed indefinitely for "remodeling." This is unusual, because the place is always filled, and the food is great. We all hope it comes back,...More

Short and Sweet: Pre-Valentine's Day Dinner was good / above average - the service was good, the server herself was delightful; the food was quite good (not excellent, but quite good) and the music was sublime. At the end of the meal, I repeatedly mentally...More

This is the third time I’ve dined in this East Rochester restaurant, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each visit. Their food is both unusual and superb in its preparation, with their accompaniments coupled perfectly to the main dish. Tonight I enjoyed the scallops which were seared...More

I heard that they had a change of ownership but everything is still great. Nice selection on the menu, food cooked perfectly, service excellent. The bonus is that they have live music that starts early so you can eat before 7 pm and still enjoy...More
