The variety of dishes was welcome, and the presentation was like a Top Chef TV show! I would prefer more elegant, mature servers at these prices....but I suppose they are going for a more urban vibe-- kind of like a "W" Hotel thing.....the signature tuna dish was awesome. As the evening gets later, the younger, stay out late crowd comes in. We ate here twice on 2 separate visits.

Excellent, fresh ingredients excellently prepared with a delightfully artful presentation. The fresh fish and seafood offerings change daily - and are always interesting.

The atmosphere is quiet and elegant with a classy urban feel that is hard to find in a city this size.

The lunch menu offers the same outstanding flavor and presentation at a very reasonable price point. Eat in or carry out; you will not be disappointed.

Soups are fantastic! Good wine list.

Delightfully filling meal and well worth the reasonable price! Astmosphere is warm and the waiter was very informative.

Top quality seafood. Top quality service. For that special occasion. Modern decor. We had the Gazpacho, cherry and walnut salad and Halibut with asparagus. The gazpacho was amazing! Actually it was all amazing!

We were on a one-night stay in Rochester for Gold Rush. Our neighbors had highly recommended this restaurant. We were not disappointed. I booked through Open Table, and we were seated as soon as we arrived. We shared the seafood plate for two. Everything was prepared perfect and the sauces were amazing. We each enjoyed a salad. I could have made a meal on the Pescara salad. The bread was delicious. We loved the choice of "starches" and "vegetables." We had the hash browns with gouda and the cauliflower. The serving sizes were generous and I would have liked to try more of the side dishes. Sorry, too full for dessert. There was a very nice "by the glass" wine selection.
