Pescara is an excellent place if you are looking for delicious fresh seafood. My husband had the halibut and I had the salmon. Both were very fresh. This restaurant is a little pricey, but it is worth it. I would recommend the bread pudding for dessert - it was awesome. Ashley B was our server, and she was so friendly... More

When on an overnight stay for Mayo Clinic visit a couple of years ago, we had a wonderful dinner here. Now on another overnight visit, we went back. It was just as good or maybe even better than we remembered. We arrived early (before dining room opened) , sat at the bar and enjoyed wine and an appetizer. Then we... More

When they told me the "fresh" fish was just flown in a day or 2 before, that is already going on 3 days old and is certainly not "fresh" for a place that charges like it was caught that morning. The food was good, but not great, and the lack of creativity of the menu a little disappointing. That would... More

Hi Customer53140, Nobody told you the fish was "flown in a day or 2 before". We, the entire staff at Pescara, are well aware of the quality of product we sell and the fact that it is flown in daily and delivered to our back door. Our prices are according to the value of our product, which is of the... More

I've had biscuits and gravy for breakfast my whole life, but the sausage gravy at this restaurant was the best I've ever had. The egg dishes were great as well. Along with the buffet comes pancakes, waffles, or french toast. Coffee/tea is included. Pretty good meal and a pretty good price.

Had breakfast and the food was just okay. Eggs were standard but not fresh. The buffet I did not try because it didn't look very appetizing. Given the prices I would have expected better.

Hi sassysagesays, I'm sorry your breakfast was not what you expected. However, every breakfast dish is made fresh to order, including the eggs. Did you have a chance to speak with your server or a manager about your meal? Voted the best breakfast/brunch in Rochester, it is very important for us to hear both the positive and negative feedback from... More
