From the great wine and martini selections it is a very special place for us to go. They have a new menu but saved some of the old favorites too, especially their famous calamari salad. Open every night and keeps putting out great food and service which says a lot about why they are there and successful for so many... More

If you love tasteless food, small portions, and high prices... RUSH IMMEDIATELY to Tapas! The food looked good but they forgot to add flavor! The menu has no pictures so beware of small portion sizes! The calamari was fried well but no seasoning! The empanadas were smaller than dumplings and costs the same as a gourmet burger in Red Robin!... More

From dingy bar to hip little restaurant. This is a MUST try, especially for a date night. The downstairs dining had a romantic feel and if the weather is nice, you can even eat on a little patio that is straight out of Europe! If you're looking for recommendations on food: calamari for the win!!

So, I am staying at the Rochester Radisson Riverside, downtown and there really isn't much "dining" to choose from here. (Hockey mom with a child at camp at Bill Gray's Ice Complex, 15 minutes away). However, this little gem, is but a block and a half away, and it is definitely a must-try. The menu is eclectic but everything is... More

Went here with my wife for our anniversary. Hardest part was deciding what to order. Everything sounded amazing. We ended up sitting at the bar and ordered 4 or 5 small plates instead of sitting down for dinner. Tuna Tartare and Chorizo Mussels were my favorite but it was all very good. They also had an interesting cocktail menu and... More

What a Gem! You would never guess such a gem existed in this Location. The atmosphere was great, the service even better! The Food was fabulous, and so many choices. There was truly something for everyone. Rochester is not a place I would choose to visit,but I will definitely return to this restaurant.

We went here on a whim the other night and I had such a good time. There's so many choices it was hard to pick only a couple. We all got a couple plates and shared. Our server was very patient and helpful and offered us bread when we told him we were in town for a half marathon. A... More
