Lovely dining. You can dine outside whe the weather is nice. The food is wonderful, the menu creative. The desserts are amazing! On Monday's they have a Chicken french Special, just make a reservation early, it's limited.

We had a very special and memorable family birthday celebration in the back room (reserved in advance) with 13 people (3 generations) who all had different tastes and needs (including vegetarian and gluten intolerant). Each of us found something special on the menu and had a fabulous dinner. Leah, who waited on us, was perfect. Each meal was hot and served exactly as ordered. The specials were innovative and all meals were excellent. Everyone who had seafood raved about their meals. If you like a good brie, their appetizer was large enough to share and was smooth and creamy. Desserts are rich and portions large so that they too can be shared.

August 19, 2017 - I hosted a party for 13 people. We were in the restaurant's back room which is quite intimate. Everyone ordered from the menu for entre and dessert. All persons raved about the quality of their food choices. Our waitress, Leah, was excellent with just the right amount of attention at the right times. There was nothing I would wish to be different all night.

Okay, this is my second review of this restaurant. I truly can not figure out why people go there. I went back just due to it's location; close to work. The food is not special, nor would I describe it as European. Today I had the turkey walnut wrap and it was awful. Not sure what was wrong with it, either too salty or smokey or old. Others with me also said they could not figure out why it is popular, food is mediocre. Service is not friendly starting with the host who greets you as if he thinks European relates to snootiness. Desserts are so-so, okay, but not great or mouthwatering.

After a disappointing dinner elsewhere, we knew we had to make the evening right so we headed to Philips for a special dessert and a French press pot of delicious coffee. This standard bearer of Rochester always has an exceptional selection of carefully crafted specialty desserts. We chose the Viennese meringue torte. A mile hile and filled with fresh strawberries. Have had their chocolate selections in the past equally as good. Service is pleasant, prompt,and Unintrusive. Philips is always a good choice.
