A beautiful, intimate setting for a delicious meal. The service was perfect - not too attentive and not lacking in any way. The food was fantastic! From the plaintain crusted shrimp to the scallop entree and beef tenderloin, and ending with the chocolate almond mousse,...More

My husband and I went for a dinner there two weeks ago. We had a great appetizer (crab cakes), quite good fish and dessert. Their cocktails were tops. The dining room was charming and the service was impeccable.

Daughter graduated college and was looking for a good meal on my last trip to Rochester. We found it. In fact, I wish she failed some courses so I could go to Rooney's again and again. What a shame we only discovered it on this...More

I feel like I'm missing something here. My husband and I had a special event to celebrate and decided to splurge on the "best restaurant in Rochester". The location is really just not great. I get that the Southwedge is trendy and being revitalized, but...More
