Steakhouse | Rochester, Western New York

We have been twice now, each time was amazing and well worth every penny. Had the wagyu ribeye: perfectly cooked and delicious. We call it “meat butter”, it’s THAT good. Sides are big enough to share, deserts are phenomenal and made in-house! Servers have been great and friendly. Honestly, I don’t think this place will never disappoint, and will become part of a tradition for us. More

Ethiopian | Rochester, Western New York

This modest eatery was a delight: the food was exceptionally delicious, the staff very courteous and helpful and the value superior. This is not a fancy place - and that is part of its charm. Expect a great meal at a reasonable price prepared by experts who know and love Ethiopian cuisine. More

The meal was super. The food was exceptional and perfectly prepared. The wait person was engaging and quite professional. One negative was the concierge, who was quite unfriendly and not engaging. The only other negative is that it is inside the casino, so you must go in through the casino to reach the restaurant. More

My husband and I had dinner at Max and we loved it! While the dining room was not full - I thought it was kinda nice having the place to ourselves for a bit. We split the steamed little neck clams which were exquisite. My husbands NY strip was cooked perfectly and my bolognese was awesome. This is a great place for a “date night”. The food is top notch!
