For an excellent dining experience, we whole-heartedly recommend Pescara. The food was five-star and the service outstanding. The restaurant is conveniently located within the Doubletree by Hilton Rochester/Mayo Clinic. Be sure to order the coffee ice cream as an after dinner treat!

Pescara never disappoints! Lovely atmosphere. Nice bar, good wine list. Located right next to Doubletree.

Delicious seafood, overshadowed by management not concerned about feedback from customers. Entering a half empty restaurant and then being seated almost in the kitchen was so insulting but management could care less!

Hi twodocs555,
That couldn't be farther from the truth. We are greatly concerned for every guest experience, and do our best to accommodate everyone fairly, including our guests with or without a reservation. That table is a favorite of many. Please come and visit us again soon and be sure to ask for another table. If we can accommodate that request we will most certainly will.

My wife and I didn't have a reservation, we were a bit worried about not having one. We approached the host stand and checked in. We were asked if we had a reservation, we told her "no". The kind host said give me a minute and let me see what I can do. She came back and said that she had a booth near the kitchen and asked if it was ok, or we could wait a bit for a different table. We were thrilled that they had something available. We took the table near the kitchen. How can we expect a perfect table on a busy night with no reservations, you CAN'T!! I did notice on our way in a few empty tables, but the common sense I have I knew those were reserved for upcoming reservations. Our server was just as nice as the host. He knew the menu well and made great suggestions. I had the Ciopino and my wife had the Grouper with Lemon Sauce. We ordered mashed potatoes to share. The food was amazing, very flavorful and the perfect temperature. We finished the night with warm bread pudding, which this the best we have ever had. Kudos to the team at Pescara, they are doing everything right!! We will be back!!!

We ate here twice in three weeks, and it was consistently good. The calamari was excellent and the fish entrees very good. Always enjoy our dinners at Pescara! Excellent service as well.
