4 of us went and 4 of we're totally satisfied, a fantastic beer list, special diets ..vegan, vegetarian and coniferous diets, something for everyone, reservations needed. Seating immediately, even if your entire party has not shown up, a rarity these days.

A little pricey but great vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options (they do have meat too). The lentil burger is great!
Good selection of on-tap beers.

The menu features thoughtful vegetarian items (the lentil burger is delicious). The coffee pours out fresh and strong.This is a quiet and comfortable place for an extended conversational lunch. Service is prompt and attentive.

If you're a vegan or vegetarian, or have vegan/vegetarian family/friends, the Owl House is great casual restaurant to visit. The menu trends more towards sandwiches than traditional entrees, but everything is delicious and made from fresh, wholesome ingredients. If you're an omnivore, fear not... plenty of the selections are offered with meat or fish, but can also be prepared vegetarian (and often vegan) style. The restaurant, a renovated/repurposed historic home in a mostly residential neighborhood, is a fun, casual and chic eatery that won't break the bank. There is no on-site parking, but parallel spots aren't too difficult to find nearby. Wine and beer selection is good,and they offer some interesting, tantalizing cocktail features. I've found the staff to always be warm, friendly, and attentive, never pretentious or aloof. In warmer weather, they have a very nice rear patio. If you're looking for something different, with some class and sophistication without being stuffy or pretentious, this is a great place to visit. I consider the Owl House to be a nice alternative to the intimate and fashionable eateries on Rochester's Park Avenue (dinner will run about $10-$20pp, plus beverages). Reservations are often a good idea.
