My wife and I dined at this charming restaurant before heading off to a 50th high school reunion. What a great place. The French Onion Soup is fabulous and the Boston Scrod sublime. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and our waiter Simon was well informed and attentive. Three gold stars for this one.

This was our first visit. The atmosphere was fabulous. Great Background music and excellent service. The crab cakes are superior and the halibut done to perfection. We will be back.

We've eaten at the Downtown Kitchen several times and have always had an outstanding experience. The ambience is European, background music is great . . . We've never felt rushed. Very nice selection of first courses, which they vary. Entrees are creative. A wonderful addition to the Rochester dining scene.

Greeted promptly by Kevin McGillicuddy (manager), by my first name! And from there it was first class service-

Food delicious and European style perfect portions, wine selection appropriate for the style of food- cozy enough for a romantic dinner , comfortable for a night out with friends and or family. Never rushed , by the way .

I really do not have enough space to tell you how absolutely happy my daughter get friend and I were . Top notch in every way- and the price -surprisingly reasonable .
Wonderful experience , a real hidden gem. PLease experience downtown kitchen !!

Even though they've been open for nearly a year, we didn't hear about Downtown Kitchen until a month ago and now it's on our short list of favorites in Rochester. The food is excellent and on par with more expensive restaurants in the Twin Cities area where we tend to go when we want higher end fare. The menu is brief but both visits have been excellent. During our most recent visit we tried the crab cakes which were exceptional with a home made romoulade sauce. For our main entree we tried the Tuscan sirloin which had excellent seasoning and prepared as requested. Dessert include tradional creme brûlée and a chocolate tort. Neither disappointed! And best of all, Downtown Kitchen's prices are very reasonable. A must try!
