Enjoyed this place on two different occasions and Michael was our server! He was wonderful, great humor, knowledgeable, and made sure all of our needs were met! Atmosphere & Food was incredible!

Nice, albeit romantic atmosphere with a subdued big city vibe. Good acoustics - not too loud, even though every table was occupied. Great staff - friendly, attentive. Scallops were the absolute highlight for me. Superior quality, cooked to absolute perfection with a really nice sauce....More

You might be skeptical of a “seafood/fish” restaurant in the Midwest! You will love this understated restaurant in the Double Tree Hotel. The lobster bisque was supremely delicious! Again, hesitant and skeptical about ahi tuna tartare; yet, this was among the best in my 68...More

Delicious fish preparations, a very attentive staff and a vibrant bar scene made this a delightful find in Rochester and very convenient for those using the Mayo Clinic. But it can stand tall next to many fine restaurants in major cities anywhere.

Bills it self as the best restaurant in Rochester Food is pretty good but much too expensive for what you get. For example, 6 medium shrimp (claimed to be jumbo) was $39. Wait staff friendly but slow. One dish that may be worth the price...More

Hi abensteinjp, We don't bill ourselves as one of the best restaurants in Rochester, our community does. Our prices reflect, and fairly I might add, the quality of food we serve. Our seafood is flown in fresh daily and all of our recipes are made...More

Our group had a wonderful dinner at Pescara this past week. My grilled fish was delicious. We couldn't resist ordering the bread pudding for dessert. Highly recommended.

Went to lunch here today expecting better. We've been here a few times and it's usually good--but today, the service so slow. They were out of the swordfish right at noon, the calamari was luke-warm at best. Our waitress was so inattentive she only came...More
