Description: The Grill at One is a compliment to the well-known nightclub "One". Thoughtful food in a modern & trendy, but casual atmosphere. A giant bar and 28 foot projection screen with area photography make for a fun atmosphere. A fireplace, lounge type music and large windows make it a great place to eat, drink, lounge, dance and people watch. A modern american and creative menu changes with the seasons, incorporating traditional food with some new-age flair. Features include gourmet burgers, aged steaks, pasta dishes, fresh seafood and crisp salads. Small plates are also abundant and great for sharing. A "from scratch" kitchen with Chef driven specials and in house made pasta, cheese and bread. High quality ingredients by way of constant contact with Boston-based seafood purveyors and local produce farms. An extensive wine & beer list and signature cocktails round out the dining experience. The Grill at One can also accommodate private events for parties of 20-300 people and also features a private dining room for up to 18 people. An Outdoor, second story deck provides seating when weather permits. Enjoy our wonderful wine selection reasonably priced to compliment any meal.

“Great service, wonderful food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

My wife had the duck breast, which was delicious but a first for her and a little too rich for her taste. She had no problem substituting grilled asparagus for the starchy vegetable on the menu. I've been enjoying beet salads a lot recently, but the one I had last night was the best. The barley and candied pistachios added a nice texture. I also had the house-made vegan burger prepared Bánh Mì style (pickled carrot & daikon, jalapeños, cilantro & garlic aioli) that was delicious. The roll was merely adequate, but the burger was too soft to stand without it. The accompanying fries were good. We go to the Little Theatres pretty regularly, so this will definitely be added to the small list of downtown restaurants with free parking.

“Frustrating Disappointing Experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

We arrived for dinner at 5:45 p.m. (with a reservation), as we had tickets for an 8:00 p.m. show. The table next to us was seated about 30 minutes after us. They were immediately waited on and received their food before we were given an opportunity to order. Throughout the entire ordeal, the owner and waiter kept apologizing to us, indicating that the kitchen was overwhelmed. We kept getting false reports that our food was coming shortly. Meanwhile, the table next to us finished their dinner before we even received our entrees. By the time the dinners arrived, I had indigestion from the stress of waiting and waiting and worrying that we were going to miss our show. By 7:20, our dinners still had not yet arrived at the table. I was forced to take the food in a to-go box. Still apologizing as we were leaving, the owner offered no consolation for the poor service. Though the food is decent, my dining experience was ruined by the undue stress and that fact that once it arrived, we only had time to put on our coats and depart. Being forced to take the food to go is not my idea of a fine dining experience.

“dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

Service was really, really good. The server immediately told us about the special happy hour and how long we had left to order it. She was pretty prompt with drink refills and dessert recommendations.

“Great restaurant for meals, happy hour, and special events!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

My husband and I had our wedding reception here in July, 2011. It was an amazing event with wonderful food, wonderful space, and a great staff. Mark, the head waiter, was amazing. Jay, the head chef/manager is amazing, and Billy, the kitchen chef, is THE BEST. Food is amazing all the time. Setting is very upscale and feels like a NYC nightclub. This is one, if not the best, restaurant in Rochester!

“Nice Pre-Holiday Dinner, definitely go!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2011

We had a great dinner at One before the Christmas holiday. Highly recommend the Sea Bass, it was perfect. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Rochester. $5 cosmos anytime is a great deal too!
