Superb ambiance and cuisine. The service is excellent. A bit pricey but worth it. One of Rochester's best kept secrets.

As a former resident of Rochester, it is always nice to return to familiar territory. Don't let the location fool you. This is one of the best restaurants in the area. It is located in an old store front in the old south wedge area...More
