There were six of us celebrating a friend's birthday for dinner. We all enjoyed our meals. You should note that this is a la carte. I started with the Tavern House Salad which was very good, but there was too much dressing for me. Next time I would ask for light dressing or on the side. For the main course,... More

When I called, I did say we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. At the end of dinner, they presented us with two flutes of champagne...such a nice touch! We are definitely returning (even if not an anniversary) for the food was so delicious and cooked just as we requested. The attention to detail was impressive. My husband asked how much... More

We co-hosted our daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner at Tavern58 at Gibbs the evening of August 5, 2016. From the start the experience (to call it a dinner would not do justice) was FANTASTIC. Event planner Karen was so helpful with suggestions, ideas, and tips for making the evening an enjoyable one for our rather large gathering of 35 people, including... More

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.

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
