Had a nice pre-theater meal last night at the Cub Room. Service was prompt and friendly. Shared some apps including Monkfish tempura and a Kale Caesar salad. Very tasty but only 2 small pieces of the fish for a 15 $ plate? 1 more piece...More

One of the newer, trendier places in Rochester. Atmosphere is definitely NYC-ish. Service is professional, food is very good, but pricey. Pretty good wine list too. As I saw in another review, I got the pasta Bolognese too and for the money you'd think you'd...More

The Cub Room. I completely love the ombiance. Open and classy. Come in as you are from work. Food is tasty. Yet it’s hard to weigh the cost with the quantity. My 37 year old son ordered an appetizer Fried squid. $15... 3 pieces, and...More

My wife and I tried this restaurant for the first time last Saturday before attending a musical. We were impressed to say the least. As noted by others this is a unique space. I guess I would use the term industrial in overall appearance but...More

First off - the space is so unique and inviting - love it! The server was incredibly helpful. And the food was amazing - nice portions (not too big or too small) and all the details of flavor and texture were so unique. Can’t wait...More
