My spouse and I went out for diner here last weekend. Although I find the price of the fish (served without any sides) outrageously expensive for Rochester, MN, it is very fresh and the service is impeccable. Wine pours are generous. Highlight of the meal, as it always is for us, was the ahi tuna appetizer. It is a must.

Fantastic meal. Fresh arctic char with beurre blanc was wonderful. We all felt it was one of the best meals we have ever had. It is rather pricey, but definitely worth it.

Very good seafood, but pricey. The seared tuna was a bit too cold on the inside, but we enjoyed the appetizers (calamari and tuna tartare). The atmosphere felt a little too business-like. My main disappointment was that I informed the restaurant ahead of time that it was our 25th wedding anniversary (although we were in town for a visit at... More

Breakfast was high quality for decent price, and the staff was very helpful and friendly even when we were late to breakfast due to issues with our baby. Love that pancakes, waffles, & French toast included in breakfast buffet! Food was delicious!!

I rarely leave reviews, but I think this important to pass along. We live in Rochester and have never been to a Christmas meal in a restaurant before. When we decided to go out to eat, there were few choices but thankfully Pescara offered this buffet. We were all very excited about going. At $26 a plate we thought it... More

Came here for the Thanksgiving buffet and was disappointed. After speaking with staff to find out if they had veg options and being assured that they did, I discovered that my choices were scrambled eggs and mashed potatoes, I was disappointed. My husband was happy with his meal.

I am in love with Pescara's lobster bisque, shrimp tacos and so many of their seafood dishes. Pescaras has special buffet events - such as Easter and Mother's Day which are AMAZING!

Very warm and inviting atmosphere, enjoyed street views from large windows, well attended to by waitstaff, comfortable seating, but pricey for the value of the meal. OK if on an expense budget, but a bit steep for those on private excursions. Food and drink nicely presented, bread plate very yummy.
