It has been years since going to Lento for dinner, but this time we went for brunch. Lento sources virtually all their produce, their meats, and drink ingredients locally. We had the Veggie Scramble - an omelette with mushrooms, summer squash, cheese, etc. and the...More

I have been here 4 times. I recently came here for my anniversary. Great cocktail and wine selection but my boyfriend was disappointed with the beer selection. Beware IPA lovers as there is only 2 beers on draft at anytime (due to lack of bar...More

Great bar staff, average food. Got the special - foie gras, and it was not prepared well. Also got some ferns, and they were cold. Cocktails were great, wait staff were great, and location was fun.

If you are exploring Rochester for the first time, you need to include Lento at Village Gate in your places to dine. An eclectic sort of place, there are culinary treats for anyone's pallet. Raw bar, Mediterranean, Italian, etc. AND it's farm-to-table (except the oysters...More

Back a second time, for my daughter's grad school graduation, after celebrating her undergrad graduation here last year, and the place continues to impress! Superb locally sourced dishes presented in a creative and down-to-earth style!

Definitely - 3 people in our party of 7 are strict vegetarians, and they were all very happy with the choices available, and the food itself.
