The Rabbit Room is an independent restaurant in a very unique setting — a historic former mill from the 1800s. The building itself is interesting and beautiful, with exposed wood beams and stone walls. In addition to the restaurant (first floor), the second floor houses the Mill Art Center art gallery and classes, as well as a yoga studio and a gift shop. You can eat dinner and also browse interesting art. Up until a few months ago, you could also, if you were lucky, look at an extensive Asian art museum.

The ambiance makes an outing to the Rabbit Room fun and special. They are only open to the public Thursday nights for dinner and they often have music. Low key piano, guitar, trumpet ... which plays by the bar, away from most dinner tables, so you can enjoy conversation with your dining partner and hear the music, without having to choose one or the other. Nice touch.

Ambiance and the food are equal draws here. The chef and owners focus on gourmet dishes that are innovative touches on traditional meals many times and always delicious. We have had some of our best meals here. Many choices include locally raised and organic meats, locally grown greens and more. They also have a tasting menu — starting at about $45 a person — with options for each course. This is great, because it seems to be one of the few restaurants in the Rochester area that offer this now that Wegmans' Tastings has closed.

It's not cheap to eat here. An entree is $20-$30 plus appetizers and drinks, but I have never left here thinking it wasn't worth it.

The Rabbit Room serves delicious food and isn't too expensive. They also have an art gallery upstairs, so after you're done eating, enjoy the beautiful exhibits.

The Rabbit Room in Honeoye Falls, NY is open only one night to the general public, so I was lucky to be invited to a private party there. Our delicious food was served in four courses, family style, introduced by the knowledgeable servers and then shared around the table with lots of, "OMG, you have to taste this!" Two salads featuring fresh greens, beets, goat cheese, pecans and other absolutely fresh and as much as possible local ingredients. Then two appetizers: ravioli with pumpkin filling (to die for!) and gnocchi, that were as light as air, with mushrooms. Two main dishes: shrimp and beef. Both were yummy. Finally desert including carrot cheesecake, flour-less chocolate torte and apple dumpling. Enjoying myself thoroughly and not holding back one bit while eating, I never the less felt satisfied, not overly stuffed, when coffee was served. Five Stars PLUS!
