Busy little place! We got lucky to sit at the bar. The Mac and cheese nachos were really good, although to be honest, I was surprised that they were just “regular” chips. I figured the Mac and cheese (that was so good) deserves a fancier...More

The restaurant layout is not impressive- seems to want to cater more to takeout than dining-in, although there is outdoor (sidewalk) seating. Prices were reasonable. Food was just OK. Wait service was very good. This place is not fancy, but it is OK if you...More

Our group of three came here - two vegans and one omnivore. Each of us LOVED the food. My husband had the "Compost Plate," a play on Rochester's famed "Garbage Plate." My daughter had the grilled cheese stuffed with delicious add ons. I had the...More

I've eaten there twice and both times, the food was mediocre and too expensive for what it is. Maybe I had the wrong things: one was a tempeh sandwich, one was the faux meatloaf plate. The sandwich was just...meh. The meatloaf was unexciting, as was...More

This is the second visit to the Red Fern and it is nothing less than amazing. The food and desserts are incredible and is probably the best vegan restaurant I have ever been too. A must stop if you are in the area.

The Red Fern was recommended to us as the best vegan restaurant in the Rochester. We did not have a chance to compare but I can confirm that it was very good. We selected from the daily menu with "Arnold Palmers" to wash it down....More

Had a chance to bring a few friends to the Red Fern, for our second visit. Everyone enjoyed their meals, and of course we all left absolutely stuffed! As before, service was great, and helpful with the menu and specials. And again as before, so,...More

They do an excellent job of making appealing vegan food that you will enjoy even if you don’t normally eat vegan. Flavours and textures were outstanding. Steak bomb! What a great sandwich. Baked goods are super too.
