Pescara was voted best brunch around for a few years running. Their food is good and you can order delicious French Toast from the kitchen. You also get a complementary mimosa. Lobster Bisque is good as long as they have lobster in it.

Best Halibut I've ever had! It's pretty expensive, but it's to be expected, seeing as how it is halibut! Their brunch is great too!

Dined late on a week night. The service was just right - food pretty good. Presentation fine & didn't tryto rush us even though it was getting late. Rissoto was a bit crunchy and my colleagues choices slightly over salted.

My wife and I had heard great things about the restaurant. But the reviews understated the fine meal and service we enjoyed. This experience was one of my top 3 meals of all time.

We love Pescara for any meal, but it seems we often are there for brunch or lunch. Sunday brunch is a great treat, and you had best come hungry. I love the lobster bisque, the salmon, the fruit, and of course, the dessert. You can...More

For an excellent dining experience, we whole-heartedly recommend Pescara. The food was five-star and the service outstanding. The restaurant is conveniently located within the Doubletree by Hilton Rochester/Mayo Clinic. Be sure to order the coffee ice cream as an after dinner treat!
