First time trying The Meeting House and it was a good experience. My friend and I decided to get brunch and there was a little bit of a wait, however, they have a table waiting app that texts you when your table is ready which I thought was a cool touch. The menu is limited but offers unique dining experiences... More

Excellent locavore cuisine. What a surprise. This will be one of my go to places as seasonal foods come onto our market. Theses folks know how to cook! Don't let the laid back vibe fool you, this is one terrific restaurant.

I have eaten at the Meeting Place a number of times. It now has a novel phone app to let you know just how long you have been waiting and just how long you are going to continue to wait. Some find a line to be a sign of a popular and therefore good establishment. I find waiting to be... More

8 of us visited for the first time on Saturday, 2/11/17. Were seated right on time for our 8 pm reservation - nice! Had a large table between the two dining rooms which was perfect for conversation in a very full & boisterous resturant. Great service and great food at reasonable prices: our portion of the bill, including tip, was... More

We met some friends at The Meeting House for dinner on Saturday. It was our first visit there. I was a little disappointed we couldn't make reservations in advance for only 4 people (their website only allows reservations for groups of 6 or larger). We decided to meet earlier than planned so that we wouldn't have to wait too long... More

Went here on a Saturday night for celebratory dinner with my husband and son. We had high hopes, as husband had been here for a work dinner in Nov. 2016. Sadly, we were underwhelmed. First, the atmosphere is very loud. While there is music in the bar area, it is completely drowned out by conversations at the tables. TMH could... More

So this place has really won me over. The first few times I went I wasn't overly impressed. After returning a few more times, I had one of the best meals of my life... the short rib and grits. They don't always have it, but any meal your order is usually quite delicious. Atmosphere is hip and upscale. Great menu.

We have had showers here and have had many brunches here with family and friends. Just the best food for brunch consistently, good services and always nice to be remembered. The only thing is the hostesses really need to smile and be a little warmer upon entering.

It's a small chic spot to hang out; the bar is small and crowded. Our 45 minute wait for a table turned into 1 1/4 hrs which was painful for a family, some too young to enjoy a cocktail. It was just one of those nights that downtown was crowded so we waited. Finally our table was ready and our... More

Wanted to visit downtown Rochester to see the lights and have dinner with friends. This place was recommended and highly rated on TripAdvisor. This is usually a winning combination. I rarely give negative reviews but after thinking about it for a day, I'm still astonished at the quality of the food for the price we paid. The beet salad was... More
