“Very Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

The breads at this place are ridiculously good. Oh my goodness, we got to try 4 different ones in our basket and they were all great. We shared the special of a pork shank and beans and it was definitely comfort food. Very tender and delicious. The beet salad was great as well. The service is excellent.

“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

What great food! I am a huge foodie an a good friend suggested this place as her favorite place in Rochester, so we decided to give it a whirl. We brought other well traveled foodie friends and they were equally impressed. My first impression wasn't great, because I think they are lacking in atmosphere and it is a little crowded, but everything else made up for it. All four of us had something different; 3 of 4 were specials; the salmon spread appetizer was fabulous. It was like a carpacio but with cooked salmon and just flavorful. The salad was fresh & attractive and simple, the Tomato basil soup was amazing. The entrees were all good; the Pork Chop with pecans, the Ribeye with blue cheese, the stuffed pork chop and the Snapper. All were delicious. The server was well educated and very good; suggested wine pairing to satisfy us all. The only disappointment was our Baked Alaska dessert, it was frozen so hard and had a little freezer burn, but she removed it from our bill and was very apologetic and gracious.

“Poor food / poor customer experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

Went to Prescotts for a family dinner after travelling all the way from Australia. Had heard great things about the restaurant but had a generally negative experience. Waitress was non-attentive, had poor attention to detail and happy to take away side-salads before they were finished. Food was too rich and poorly presented.

Over the next 24-36 hours, 5 of the party fell seriously ill (three of the party worked for the medical institute in Rochester)... Called the restaurant the next day and they told us they would inform the local health authorities... when we called for an update they didn't have one... we followed up with the authorities ourselves and they claimed they hadn't been informed by Prescotts. We spent over an hour on the phone with them to run through detail what we had all eaten...

“Overpriced, no ambiance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

My husband and I split an entree because items were very expensive. We had the house salad which had very fresh lettuce but a strange dressing and what I assumed were ground breadcrumbs on top. It was like eating grit. The steak we ate was ok not great. They had a very good bread basket service was very attentive. As one reviewer said the place felt more like a breakfast restaurant than a fine dining establishment. Certainly not worth the cost.
