The nicest dining room in Rochester. Great host and waiter, very good fish and food presentation. Quiet, classy environment. If you need a place to lay back after a Mayo Clinic day this is the place.

Pescara is a remarkable, predominantly seafood restaurant. The food is always fresh, artfully prepared and presented, and the service is impeccable. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the world despite that it is a seafood establishment in landlocked Minnesota.

Relaxed atmosphere, no rush. We were allowed to sit quietly prior to ordering. The wait staff was able to accommodate dietary restrictions. The menu consisted of daily fresh fish the crab cakes were the best that I have ever eaten.
