Steakhouse | Rochester, Western New York

Ambiance excellent(quiet and warm), meal served at a pace we requested. Great wine list. Cocktails perfect. Waitstaff attentive. Both menu and waiter went to great lengths to describe dry ageing and it's benefits. We both ordered NY strips which were cooked perfectly. We were surprised to find both steaks lacking in flavor. We were prepared to pay what we knew were high prices for a special meal. The steak dd not deliver. In addition one would expect a decent steak knife in a restaurant known for it's steaks, not an 80 cent special from China. More

Fusion / Eclectic | Rochester, Western New York

We always love Next Door for their innovative dinner menu, went for lunch and were just as blown away. The bento box is packed full of the freshest sushi and sashimi I've ever had! Wonderful salad, dressed perfectly, and great portions! The Poke bowl is a flavorful healthy way to go, the poke sauce should be bottled and sold! Great service, love the open floor plan, the fireplace was great on a cold day! For a quick delicious lunch, or a long leisurely dinner, you can find exactly what your looking for at Next Door! More

Fondue | Rochester, Western New York

The food was good although the entree didn’t have a clear description that the meat had a lot of black pepper on it. Due to a sensitivity I try to avoid it in large quantities (my tongue swells up). I was able to scrape most of it off and didn’t have a problem. The manager was attentive and our server could have been more attentive. We weren’t able to get her attention to tell her our chocolate was burned or something. It was off and had a very funny flavor. More

Steakhouse | Rochester, Western New York

Texas De Brazil never, ever disappoints. I went there for my birthday. In tow, I had a $20 off coupon, for two, they sent for my birthday. The meats were super flavorful. Our waiter and the gauchos were very attentive and friendly. I had the chocolate mousse as my complimentary birthday dessert, YUM! This is the 7th or 8th time I've eaten at Texas De Brazil, and it certainly will not be the last! More

Mexican | Rochester, Western New York

I enjoyed eating here and the company I was with. The bar area seemed pretty nice, but I sat in the back. I did the salsa flight, which people had raved about online, the salsas were ok and IMO weren't spicy enough or at least didn't have a spicy enough option. I had the carna asada taco, which was in classic styling, with some added sauce, tasted great. One criticism I would add on the tacos is that you only get one per the price, so if you're used to getting 3 tacos for X, consider paying 3 times X for the same meal. I think by lowering the price per taco, more people would eat here and overall spend more with this establishment. Overall, a cool place, but a few small tweaks and could be a great place! More

Italian | Rochester, Western New York

Food was mostly very good. Got greens and beans app and pizza and chicken Parm for entrees. Very disappointed in the bread. One of the things I look forward to at an Italian restaurant. It was obviously stale. Why a place with a wood fire oven doesn’t make fresh bread every day is beyond me. Or even if you’re going to serve bread from a bakery get it fresh! It’s the first impression I have of a restaurant. Then our last impression was similarly disappointing. We had a very dry dense lemon cake that was obviously days or weeks old. Liked our meals so we will go back but maybe not on a Sunday More

I guess I made poor menu choices that night. I have been there many times, but wasn’t thrilled with the food that night. The rigatoni was kind of a mushy mess, and the salad was a little blah. But our pizza was good, and they have a good wine selection. Our service was also really good. More
