Stayed at the Holiday Inn next door and chose to eat here quite a bit as opposed to the other 4 restaurant in the area. The food was tasty, and they had some great specials. People seem to drop in to pick up their deserts. They had so many choices from the case at the front, it was incredible.Good service... More

We visited Phillips European for lunch one afternoon while staying in the Courtyard Hotel nearby. The reastaurant was clean and the service was friendly. At apporx 1:30 pm we thought we were late for lunch by the restaurant was still busy. My wife had a special salad and I had the ruben; both were very good. While we didn't have... More

I guess it's true, just go there for dessert. Our dinner was not worth the money nor the time. I ordered the salmon and my husband ordered the filet. The filet was incredibly fatty and the salmon was just ok. The dessert was great. Ordered the peanut butter tart and husband ordered very berry cheesecake. Both desserts were delicious! Next...

The location is not in the heart of downtown. It's in a small business park. But it's well worth finding it. The service was excellent, with friendly and helpful staff. The entrées, from steals to vegetarian stir-fry to seafood, were all well-prepared, well presented, and delicious. Wine selection was wide-ranging, and reasonably priced. The deserts, which are heavily reviewed, are... More

Imagine if the restaurant occupied a gracious Victorian house on a tree-lined cobblestoned street with no parking. Prices would double, but the food and service could not be any better. So it's in a strip mall. Get over it and enjoy your dessert! Wonderful selection of entrees with plenty of vegetarian options. Of course, the real reason they have been... More

Once a year some of us are in Rochester for Coop Extension Gathering of Gardeners and always want to eat at Phillips. We go especially for the desserts, but the entree selections are delicious as well. Continental cuisine, just right for US tastes without being dumbed down. The chicken based entrees can be ordered in small portion, which is generous.... More

We ordered the artichokes french. They were delicately battered and served with a sherry, wine and lemon sauce. We ordered the ahi tuna over sauteed spinach special. The tuna was cooked perfectly and served with brown rice. They have an extensive dessert selection and have a variety of wines, beers and spirits.

The exterior is not impressive with the restaurant in a strip mall. Inside the atmosphere was pleasant and inviting. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The selection of desserts was numerous with very large portions. Overall, this was an enjoyable dinner. We will come back when in town again.

Overlook the strip mall - this restaurant is a charming step back in time, with pleasant wait staff and some good dishes. The impressive dessert selection is on display as soon as you enter. Kids had to take extra desserts to go and everyone wants to go back.
