I returned to Richardson's recently for a business dinner after not being there for many years and found it to still be a first-rate experience. The food was polished continental cuisine and extremely well prepared. Service was very professional. We ate in the less formal pub area but there are extremely formal dining rooms (some semi-private) as well as the patio which is nice in good weather. Prices are on the high end so it is nice if someone else is paying or if it is a special occasion. And the food is not particularly inventive but wonderful if you are looking for the classics.

The food was sensational. The service attentive. The price in range. The salad was out of this world. Desserts were on the rich side. The coffee superb.

We were traveling through Pittsford and wanted a canal front restaurant. Found Richardson's through TripAdvisor. Had a wonderful dinner. Absolutely outstanding food. It was February, so obviously outside was closed, but that must be lovely in the summer.

Dinner was average at best. Pasta bolognese seemed almost mass produced, bland at best. Go to Next Door instead.

Prices seemed about 10% too high for average quality.

Kids screaming and some television playing didn't help.

Wait staff was ok.

Meh...better places in Rochester and Pittsford.
