This restaurant is located inside the Holiday Inn, and we went there last night before the Chicago/EWF concert at Blue Cross Arena. We are not from Rochester, and aren't familiar with the area, so after scoping out where the arena was located, we drove around looking for a place to have something to eat before the concert. This place is... More

We had lunch here. Mostly average, although my husband ate the hamburger and said it was amazing. Others had pasta, wings, sliders. All average.

This is the bar in the Holiday Inn Downtown, recently the Plaza Downtown, an old musty and poorly maintained property. The bar is average in every respect: appearance, selection, service. Macallan's Scotch 12 year is $15 for a short pour.

It was convenient to eat here, since it is in the hotel lobby and there are limited other choices nearby. But the service was slow, and the food just wasn't very good. The hotel was just reopened after a renovation, so maybe they were rusty.

Went with friends on lunch break from a conference. We had an hour for lunch and needed it and then some to get ordered and fed here. The place only had one waitress it seemed servicing a moderately large and busy lunch crowd. The food when we got it was good and moderately priced. Seems like they need more staff... More

The staff were friendly, the wings were great! The Ceaser salad was lacking. My waiter was very friendly and made a great recommendation. Not a huge menu to choose from.

I decided to take a few weeks before writing this review to let my disgust and anger settle. I was staying at the Rochester Plaza for a few days on business in June of 2014, and will NEVER return! The hotel itself is dated, and while some areas look fairly fresh, I was repulsed at others. The dining areas, specifically,... More

Did not feel like going out so ate at the Rochester Plaza hotel State Street Bar. Menu was a little brief but interesting appetizers and entrees. Had the hummus and Pita. Delish. And beef noodle soup was great. Waiter was right it was a bit salty but I liked it. My wife wouldn't have. Steak entree was perfectly cooked and... More

Worth avoiding, consider going somewhere else. Poor service and so-so food makes this a non-destination. Food is pricey for the quality. The facilities are nice and the decor is pleasant. Might be a good option if there is a snow storm keeping you in. The do have Genesee Cream Ale on tap which was good.Some happy hour special were offered.
