We decided to give 300 First a try, based upon a neighbor's recommendation. We were glad we did. Everything was first rate. We were warmly greeted, promptly seated and given a warm welcome by our server. From appetizer to entree, our food was delicious and...More

We dined here while visiting Rochester for medical care. From the outside, you wouldn't know it's a renovated warehouse-type building. The atmosphere was quiet and conducive to conversation. The service was excellent on the evening we were there. The restaurant was not busy. My dining...More

I was the only one of my group that ordered seafood. The seafood fettuccini was limited in the seafood ingredient. Two jumbo shrimp, two large scallops, and a few mussels. The taste was not there. It would have been better presented with smaller seafood portion....More

We visited 300 First with friends for dinner. I hadn't eaten here since it was the old Broadstreet restaurant years ago. The interior is similar, lots of wood and a older comfortable feel. We arrived without reservations on a weekday and were able to get...More

This was my most expensive meal in quite some time, but the food was delicious. The cabbage chorizo rolls had some nice zing to them with the sauce, although the were more like Mexican egg rolls. The salmon with apple glaze was delicious, with just...More
