“I wish I remembered more often to go here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Good food: loved the zucchini fries and flatbreads we shared. The atmosphere was so so but it was a trendsetter in the Village Gate before all the other restaurants cropped up. I have not been back there in over a year, maybe longer, and wish that I remembered to eat there. It's good.

“Good food and drink, crowded and loud cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Their gate plate is the best in rochester. I love their hot mocha coca on on cold evening. Definitely recommend making reservations as this trendy place gets overcrowded and the wait times are long. Not a good place to take anyone hearing impaired, it's very loud!

“Nice Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Always a good meal here! Their burgers are good, had an awsome fish fry once, and their pizzas are good as well.

“Good Burger!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

This is a popular spot for casual dining though I try to avoid going at peak service because the room is not large and is quite noisy. About 1:00 PM for lunch, often at the fair sized bar, this place may have the best burger and fries in town tho` they also feature wood fired oven dishes and, of course, pizza.

“Always tasty dishes and friendly servers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We visit regularly after RBTL Saturday matinees. Service is friendly, atmosphere is funky, food is imaginative in flavor and presentation and wine and cocktail selection is extensive. All in all, a fun place to grab some after theatre fare.
