--order of fries was soggy and under-seasoned --"salad boy" salad was inedible - way too much lemon and vinegar --burger was underdone on a dry bun with "sauce" that tasted oddly fishy Our waitress behaved strangely - very overdramatic and not a good listener... They need to do MUCH better on the food to justify their prices.

We were the first arrivals on a Saturday morning for brunch but the restaurant filled up fast. A lot of vegetarian/vvegan options were available. I had the Shakshuka which I never saw on a menu before but was delicious.

First time at the Owl House last night. Pretty busy as expected. They made a great Old Fashioned. Menu was interesting. Had the Cauli wings - they were great, but hot! We split a burger - wasn't all that great. Thinking not a good place to go for a burger. Got a 1/2 order for fries that were really good.... More

I read many reviews on The Owl House and was convinced this was a must-try after landing at the Rochester Airport. We were so happy that Trip Advisor yet again steered us towards a fabulous find. The Owl House is in a lovely old two-story house in the middle of a residential street that you'd never know was there unless... More

When I first walked in and got the menu I was disappointed bc it didn't match the menu given on this website (tip always check the restaurants website in case menu is seasonal), anyways this is absolutely a place for vegans, they have tons of options, and for gluten free also!! I got the salad called saladboy and I literally... More

While The Owl House does serve some standard American cuisine, such as hamburgers, that is not their specialty. Go there, and try some of the most creative, tasty variations on soy (i.e., a hickory-flavored bacon substitute). They serve up generous portions of reasonably priced plant-based dishes that will keep you coming back for more. All of this in a friendly... More

We came back for our second sooner visit for date night. Love this funky little place. Eclectic and innovative cocktail list, cozy 'home' style feel, paleo, vegan and vegetarian choices friendly menu that still has decent meat options. The steak option on the menu is sirloin. It's pretty good but I would love to see a better cut of meat... More

There was a lot missing during our visit this time. One of the specials was not available because it was sold out days before - the purveyor was on vacation? What was available was good but not the standard we experienced on our first visit. It was as if the second team was in charge of the kitchen, and it... More

Loved eating here! Food was excellent! The restaurant is in a house that used to belong to the local sheriff. Limited menu, but with extremely healthy and delicious choices. I had the saladboy- a kale based salad and cauliflower soup along with an angus burger on the best gluten free bread i have ever tasted. Portions were generous. When the... More

Friendly service and interesting dishes are the highlights of this house restaurant just off Monroe Ave.'s cluster of pubs, restaurants and even a night club just outside the Inner Loop. Many vegan and gluten free choices on this not-too-big menu. We took other reviewer's advice and had the cauliflower 'wings' which were quite good. The watermelon salad was also good.... More
