Had a gift card and decided to use it for our anniversary. Food was good but way overpriced. We did enjoy the quiet atmosphere. Paid the bill with the gift card plus added a bit more to increase the tip. To our astonishment our waiter returned saying they would like to keep a balance of $8 on the gift card. (Since it was our first visit and they want us to come back.) Are they nuts?? Unheard of. Forget it!

Well, my husband's menu prices were $4. less than mine. When we asked the Hostess, she PULLED the menu out of my husbands hands and RIPPED IT UP at our table. While she did this she said, 'I have been looking for that menu! There was another one last night too!' She was rude and obnoxious. The Waiter tried to rush us through our night. We were with friends celebrating our marraige/wedding that they were unable to attend. We are mature adults. We did not allow the Waiter to rush us for his next table. I ordered the Potato Encrusted White Fish. Most restaurants have a sprinkling of potato....this place has HASH BROWNS encumpassing the small piece of fish. In a nutshell, the wait staff is too talkative, the food is just mediocre at best. Overpriced. Not going back!

We had a private party at the Rochester Chop House working with their party mgr., Bianca Hill. She was very helpful setting up the arrangements in 2 rooms. (They are closed to the public for lunch on Sat. & Sun.) We had 3 choices of entrees, all of which were delicious. (Chicken, fish, & steak). The waitstaff couldn't have been nicer. They were polite but not intrusive. The whole experience was pleasurable and delicious!

I have been here twice for a Christmas gathering of a 12-15 women. We called ahead but they were poorly prepared for us. Not enough people assigned to our table and the service was very slow and they could not remember who ordered what. The food was average, menu has standard items of salads and sandwiches. All items are a little higher than I find at other comparable restuarants. Also the decor is stuff and boring. I would not choose to go their again, even with this group. In fact, our next outing is at another place.

We just keep coming back. Even my wife, who isn't normally a fish fan, loves to eat here.
