I have gone to The Gate House several times, and have never been disappointed. Their burgers are delicious (I like lean meat very much, their burgers are quite lean) and I like the unique toppings they've paired together. Their Mac and cheese is also amazing. I also like how accommodating they are. My husband and I went there on Valentine's... More

Went here due to other reviews and friends' recommendations. Unfortunately was not impressed at all. OK - yes the pizza was tasty but the other dishes were just OK. Salad and wings, nothing special. The Nicoise Salad went uneaten by my guest. I agreed that the presentation on the Nicoise was not appealing and she tried it but couldn't eat... More

This sit-down restaurant is located in the Village Gate “Mall” area in Rochester, just down the street from the UR Memorial Art Gallery and around the corner from the RBTL playhouse. (Note, they just (July 2016) moved around the corner of the courtyard to bigger space -- increased seating capacity, event room that can be made private and cocktail area... More

This is a very nice casual dining establishment. The food was very tasty, and well prepared. The service was excellent. There are about 10 outdoor tables which is were we sat, and the staff was very willing to assist us to a shaded area. Although it was unnecessary, when an umbrella became available, they were willing to move it to... More

Would go again. Recommend to try. Great to walk around outside as well. The price was a little high but food was great.

Patio seating in the courtyard of the Village Gate was a charming setting for a delightful, casual dinner. Wide selection of salads, burgers (veggie burger can be substituted for any of the burger combos), entrees. Our party enjoyed salads with falafel and salmon added on, veggie burger, and grilled salmon over mashed potatoes. Serving were all fresh, generous and well-presented.... More

Whenever I eat here, I get a burger. They have a very creative and and diverse burger menu, and you can substitute a veggie burger for a small charge. Their fries are flavorful, and I like their carrot and parsnip fries. They also have Mexican coca-cola on the drink menu, which you don't see often. This is a place I'd... More

We celebrated my son graduation here and enjoyed every minute. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Our bartender/waiter was very courteous to all our demands. I would highly recommend getting a side of cole-slaw with your meal it is hands down the best I ever had.

Took a group for lunch. Two of our group were vegetarian and the rest were carnivores! Everyone easily found something to fill their empty tummies. Lots of wonderful salads and some fun plates that made our vegi living crowd happy. The rest choose burgers and one an appetizer. I had the soup of the day almond with a burger. Everything... More

This was a late lunch visit away from campus. No reservation but no wait as it was about 2 pm. We ate on the outdoor patio which was pretty. Our group mostly went for the burgers which were fine -- the pickiest member of the group felt they should have been juicier. Our Vegetarian went for the pizza. The sweet... More
