I've been a denizen of the PAP for for 30+ years. I am no longer a YUPPIE. My wife and I had occasion to be in the very nice area in connection with a summer festival event so we decided to check out the efforts of the recently new owners. We had in nice table in the A/C'd dining room.... 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

We have been going to the Pub for over 40 years. The ownership change was seamless and this remains one of our favorite restaurants. When ever we have crab cakes we compare them to the Pub and the Pub always wins. Great food at reasonable prices and don't forget to ask to see the hand written wine list for some... More

The Park Ave Pub has apparently been a well-known Rochester restaurant for years. When I first discovered it a few years ago, I felt I had found a hidden gem. Little did I know that those "in the know" have been visiting for years. It's understandable. The food is consistently deilicious...that's a given. But, what I enjoy is the atmosphere.... More

My husband and I enjoyed a great meal while staying in Rochester. We started with the poached pear and roasted beet mosaic and the crab cake appetizer. Both were delicious! The crab cakes weren't like the ones from Maryland, but not every crab cake has to be like that! We enjoyed the asian aioli very much! For our main meal,... More
