I am in love with Pescara's lobster bisque, shrimp tacos and so many of their seafood dishes. Pescaras has special buffet events - such as Easter and Mother's Day which are AMAZING!

Very warm and inviting atmosphere, enjoyed street views from large windows, well attended to by waitstaff, comfortable seating, but pricey for the value of the meal. OK if on an expense budget, but a bit steep for those on private excursions. Food and drink nicely presented, bread plate very yummy.

We came here for dinner on a Friday night expecting to be wowed. The food was just okay. The halibut was overcooked and underseasoned. After dropping over $200 for 2 entrees, (side dishes are not included), 2 salads and 2 glasses of wine, one would expect to leave feeling that it was an amazing dining experience and well worth the...

Great $10 lunch menu. Service was great and food was excellent. The Lobster Bisque is as good as I have had in much more expensive restaurants. Also the walleye and crab sandwich are very good.

This is supposed to be one of the best restaurants in Rochester, MN. While my bouillabaisse was excellent, my husband's salmon was just O.K. Everything else was basically a la carte, so the total cost was fairly expensive. We were disappointed in this restaurant, as we had expected a better experience. On the other hand, we were very pleased with... More

My sister and I visited and had a great evening. The staff was awesome. Our waiter was helpful with food and wine recommendations. We were asked several times if we were enjoying our meal by the Manager. We did not have to wait long for our meal or dessert and the food was excellent.

You don't expect to find fresh seafood of this quality and preparation excellence in Rochester, Minnesota. However, this meal was superb. The other shout out is for our server who was extremely knowledgeable and very attentive. So...if you are at the Mayo Clinic or around the neighborhood, stop by. You will need reservations however. If you stop by without reservations... More
