This was a great recommendation. Anyone traveling in or through Rochester that wants something better than a bar but not dressy, try this place. Great atmosphere, selection of food, wine & beer, super wait staff, & a slick area in Rochester. You can even sit outside if the weather works. As good as anything on Park ave.

Came here based on TripAdvisor reviews while passing through Rochester on our way back through New York State after visiting Niagara Falls. The place is wonderful, new decor, excellent service, and great food! Ravioli were wonderful and the Bolognese was excellent! Chips with spinach-artichoke dip was great, considering I'm not a fan of artichokes. Great small place tucked away in... More

Favorite place! Always great food & drinks. Super friendly; I sit @ bar to eat & have drinks, chat w staff, owners & patrons. Feel very welcomed & safe, as a single older woman. Perfect after RPO Pops Concerts- just down the street. Very relaxing & fun. :-) ♡

I was in Rochester for the 2nd time with some colleagues for work and we were told about Tavern58 by a server we had the 1st night we were in town. When we drove up to Tavern58 we weren't overly impressed, but the wine selection and the food was fantastic! Easily the best meal we had all week on this... More

Of course My wife began the evening with one of Ryan's signature cosmopolitans. I, a Rohrbach's Scotch Ale. The bar and restaurant were jumping on this beautiful evening. After... More

Reservation made at short notice, due to communication issues with choice one for a special occasion. Have now dined here 4 times and it just seems to get better every time. Service was perfect in every respect. Our server Brandi and her helpers could not have been more helpful and made insightful comment as needed. The soup of the day... More

Our dessert (Apple strudel with cinnamon ice cream) was really good!!! My wife got the tenderloin with roasted potatoes. I got the rib eye special with potato salad. The meals were good...... More

We went with a a group that included a vegan, one who doesn't eats more protein than carbs and several omnivores. We all found something to our liking. Our reservation was ready and service was great. For appetizers we had the spring rolls and seafood sampler, yum. If in Rochester you might want to try it.

We wanted to try a new place close to Eastman Theater as we were watching a symphony. The reviews are all good so we were excited to try it. We got an early reservation to give ourselves enough time. We were seated right away. The booth was big and comfortable. The inside looked nice and provided enough space between diners.... More
