After searching online for a more "upscale" bar and restaurant in the Park Ave area, I came across the Park Ave Pub. It was categorized under "bar scene", which usually means there is music, one would expect possibly live music on a Friday or Saturday night. We live 30 minutes away and were planning a birthday dinner for a friend.... More

We are grateful that you pointed out the Google Maps error which erroneously listed us with live music and it’s being corrected. We're glad your calamari, coconut shrimp, lobster bisque and filet lived up to their great reputation, but it's a shame our pasta didn't follow through. We'll be sure to share your feedback with the kitchen crew to figure... More

The staff were very accommodating on a night where rain was 50/50 and all the inside tables were kept in case it rained for those booked outside. The crab cakes and lobster/risotto were excellent.

Delighted to hear you were able to enjoy our famous crab cakes and risotto! Those rainy summer nights are tricky for us, as we never want to have to turn anyone away... thanks for appreciating our system. Hope you are able to visit again the next time you are in town.

We were in Rochester with no plans for one evening the night before we met up with friends. After our horrible hotel experience, and moving in with friends instead of staying there, a recommendation was given to this try this restaurant. It was more then we ever expected, and after our hotel stay, it was a much appreciated oasis. Food... More

We live in Rochester, and this is our favorite restaurant. The atmosphere is very nice, the service is professional and friendly, and the food is always good. But best of all, you get all of this without an exorbitant price. We often choose from the prix fixe "Three Course Menu," which includes a choice of starter, entree, and dessert. It's... More

We were in Rochester with no real plans. We were told to visit Park Ave. and as residents of NYC we were not impressed by what we saw at first. So we walked into a few shops and the next thing you know we are enjoying ourselves. We stopped in for a drink and got much more than we could... More

I was trying to get my family to try a new restaurant for a change. Interestingly, I looked at reviews of Rochester restaurants (I'm from Chicago) and found that almost all of them were rated 4-4.25 stars regardless of whether it was a "Subway" or a place you might expect to have a high rating. So after reading the reviews,... More

The bar is very, very cozy and the ambiance is fitting for what one would expect in a true pub. Food is outstanding and service good. Prices are commensurate with the quality of food served, masterful preparations, and nice presentations. Perfect restaurant for a couple night out or two couples meeting for dinner. Parking is nearby and free. Reservations would... More
