“Pleasant atmosphere, lovely service, amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

We were looking for a nice place to have dinner in Rochester and found this place on TripAdvisor. We are very glad we went. The service was attentive and pleasant. We were treated like "regulars" from the time we walked in. The food was exceptional. After tasting the broccoli and shrimp chowder as an appetizer, another member of our party said, "I wish I had ordered that soup." The salad looked beautiful, as well as delicious. I wish I had taken a picture of it. For the main course, we had ravioli, a pasta with a tomato basil sauce, shrimp, and the pork loin. All were amazing. For desert we had a frozen peanut butter pie (incredible) and a bread pudding that was outstanding. Pleasant atmosphere, lovely service, amazing food...what more could you ask for?

“why stop anywhere else”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

For an intimate, friendly atmosphere this is just the place. None the of nouveau cliche that you find in those places just try too hard. The food is great, the staff attentive and it seems to have its regulars and ones who will become regulars.....why stop anywhere else?

Had dinner with a co-worker there last month. Lovely atmosphere, and good food. Wait staff was very nice and helpful. Service was quick and food quite tasty. Would recommend and plan on eating there again soon.

“Quaint, delicious,and so relaxing with great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

I have been to the pub three times. Never once was I disappointed. The drinks are as reasonable as any restaurant in Rochester and finally poured. The service is impeccable with a staff that is clearly comfortable with one another and work together as a well oiled machine. I am glad this is fairly tucked away on the street and perhaps not noticed by some although you do need reservations on weekends from my experience. They have a repeating clientele, they will remember your name, and you will always remember their food! Definitely one of my favorite places in the city to eat. The only down side (if you call it that) is the seating (booths) seemed small-ish and the decor could use some freshening up. Awesome place!
