We tried The Owl House on a whim, and luckily they had a vacant table for us on the second floor...you should definitely make reservations, as it seems that they are very popular with the young and terminally hip population of Rochester. There is a full bar with a good selection of beers, wines and liquors. THE FOOD: This Chef:... More

Let me begin with saying the food here is delicious, we all had the friends chicken and waffles. Firstly we had to make two separate reservations as we were a party of 10 and they only allow parties of up to 6, which we understand but the way they approached it came off slightly rude. On arriving I was told... More

Small menu with great options. Love the small bar as you walk in. The weather was perfect for dining outside tonight! The Buffalo Cauli cannot be missed! I had an amazing chickpea burger & my son had a steak. It was a win win for both of us. Great vibe, great service, great food & great price. I am never... More

Three of had dinner at the Owl House. My wife had a hamburger and french fries which she said were above average and accompanied by a home made ketchup. My daughter had the tofu dinner which consisted of some fried tofu, peanuts on a slab of a bread. The fried tofu was crispy and quite good, the bread base less... More

Have been to the Owl House many times since its inception. The other night, I went with a friend and was disappointed for the first time. I had the Curry Tofu with a Polenta square....the square was a dense conglomeration and mid-warm, sauce on tofu miniscule - overall grade C-. Friend's dish was a deconstructed rattioullle....the eggplant was salty -... More

Great little spot for people who like delicious food. Limited menu but quality items. Very dietary needs friendly. Small converted house with patio for dining in the warmer months. The whole family ( including our little one) loves it here. Great craft cocktails as well. Slow paced, so don't expect a quick meal. Just enjoy your time. On street parking... More

My wife and I went to the Owl House for brunch. The place is located in a house that has been transformed into a restaurant. The decor and vibe of the Owl House is relaxed and very cool. Our waiter was great. He was not only attentive but he had a great command over the menu. I ordered the chicken... More

As a vegetarian, the Owl House is one of my favorite places to eat. While it may appear to be unassuming from the outside, it holds a house-full of charm and taste! I always order a plate of their Buffalo Cauli Wings - packed with flavor and just the right amount of crunch on the outside. If you happen to... More
