Seated when we walked in and waitress went out of her way as we shared a bowl of soup. She split in two for us. Chia drink along with our sandwich was more then apppetizing! Definely recommend a visit ti this restaurant.

We stopped here for a quick bite. They serve delicious tomato soup and a few others. Place is busy and staff is friendly . Parking on the street.

We love the choices here. If you want a lot to eat great. If not, they have small choices too. friendly services and very reasonable prices. Remember, President Obama ate here.

This is a nice place with the really cool vibe and great food. Amber was my server and she really did a great job. I'm not in this area very much but if I am again I will be sure to go back

Two cherry tomatoes, two slices of onion, a couple of very small pieces of cucumber which were old and all mush, a couple of garbanzo beans and one crouton. And... More

Anytime I go to Rochester, I always go to Magnolias! They have a wide variety of soups, salads, sandwiches and the best desserts around! My favorite is the University Sandwich. Everything I have tried there is great but I always go back to my favorite.

Came here to eat lunch while staying in Rochester. After waiting for 15 minutes we were seated. The services was very good and friendly. All the food we ordered was great and we were happy with our stay at Magnolias

My husband and I were visiting family in Rochester and were pleasantly surprised at this hidden jewel. I had the best tomato artichoke bisque that I have ever had, including parm cheese crostinis. The antipasto player was more then enough for 2. The menu was diverse and great quality. Service was great. I highly recommend this place to anyone in... More

Back in 2012, President Barack Obama, on a campaign swing, stopped at Magnolia's for the signature tomato soup and a toasted cheese half sandwich. Since then his choice has become the Obama Special. I've always liked Mr. Obama so I had his special for my first meal at Magnolia's. He has great taste! I loved it! The special and coffee... More

Eaten here a few times, but this last time I wasn't thrilled. The soup was lukewarm and the avocado on my salad was brown. Rochester has a great food scene, can't afford to be hit or miss
