We were drawn to this resturant due to reviews that said that they were able to accommodate gluten free diets. We were not disappointed at all. It was a very good meal and was able to be 100% gluten free. Only disappointment was that for the price paid the portions were slightly small. Overall would definitely recommend to friends or...

Although we had difficulty finding this restaurant, the food and service were superb! The restaurant is a home changed into a restaurant and the sign is at knee level so when cars are parked on the street, it's easy to miss the restaurant. We ordered burgers and they were done to perfection. The roll was very tasty. Two of us... More

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
