Re: “Hose 22 Firehouse Grill

Couldn't finish my grinder sandwich flavors did not mix and my husbands jambalaya had overcooked dry chicken in it. We were not offered anything when we complained but the bill. Didn't take any of the leftovers home over 3/4 of meal. All we were offered was excuses. Will never be back!

Re: “Kobe Steak & Sushi House

The west side deserved a place like Kobe - I'm thrilled they are there and still going strong. The food is by far the best of any of the hibachi joints in town. The sushi is phenomenal, as well. The only downfall for Kobe is its size, but maybe this is what keeps it so fresh and wonderful. Make a reservation and get there about 15 minutes early. We've done this on our last few visits and it has served us well. If it's Friday or Saturday evening and you did not call ahead, it is likely you'll have a long wait in the tiny bar area or you can choose to dine in the lounge area where the sushi chef is (and miss the hibachi show). Plan your visit well and you will be greatly rewarded! Make sure you chant "Sake bomb" to the hibachi chef; you will also be greatly rewarded for this!

Re: “Black & Blue

Ultra-skanky is more like it. Maybe in 2006 this place was the "it" restaurant in town, but no longer. Save your special night out for one of the numerous other amazing places in town. The décor, once innovative, looks tired. The food is seriously lacking for the price. Very disappointing.

Re: “Back Nine Grill

Was Harassed by drunk.
- While watching a football game here with my son we were verbally harassed by a person that was obviously very drunk and did not like our team and seemed to want to fight. I told the owner that he needed to be cut off, but to quell the situation he gave everybody a free drink including the drunk! We only had one beer each and never took the free drink while the drunk downed his right away. We watched as the drunk left the building and my son followed him out to get his plate number and call the authorities. The owner then told us that we could cost him his license and demanded we leave. Wow! Just wanted to enjoy a football game with my son.

Re: “Ristorante Lucano

My parents moved to the US from Italy when they were in their 30's. Everything that comes from mom's kitchen is made from scratch with fresh veggies grown in my dad's garden. It is really hard to go to an Italian restaurant and have an experience that even comes close. Ristorante Lucano not only comes close, it is right up there with mom. The ingredients are fresh and the sauces are simply delicious. I love that fresh seafood is a big part of the daily specials menu. JoAnn and Chuck make you feel like family when you walk in the door and their top priority is that you have an excellent experience. Every experience I have had at Lucano has been just that, excellent. Definitely check out the specialty shop in the same plaza for some wonderful Italian favorites as well as fresh fish, meat and cured meats and cheese. They will even sell you their home made sauce so you can have the Lucano experience at home.

Re: “1872 Café

Had an amazing frappe at 1872! Had to really hold myself back from eating the entire pastry display. Stop in for the coffee, stay for the history! It's a Rochester gem!

Re: “Next Door Bar & Grill

The food was the same fare served as take out at the Wegmans locations, at least for the lunch menu. But much more pricey. I guess you are paying for atmosphere and Pittsford locale.
I adore Wegmans, but will save my lunch money next time and dine at their Market Cafe instead.

Re: “Fiamma

We've been eating at Fiamma almost weekly since discovering it a year ago. Amazing authentic Neapolitan style thin crust pizza, cooked for 60 seconds in a 1,000 degree wood-fired oven. Both the oven and the chef/owner came from Italy - the chef was originally hired by Mario Batali for one of his NYC restaurants, before moving to Rochester and setting up his own place. A nice place too to stop for a glass of wine or beer and appetizers (no hard liquor, but a good selection of inexpensive Italian wines). The location is way off the beaten track, in a mixed industrial area in Greece (but close to 490, so a short drive from anywhere in the area). A real hidden jewel for Rochester.

Re: “Café CiBon

Exceptionally well done food. Terrible, terrible service. We had reservations and were ignored (not even eye contact) for 15 minutes after entering the door. I would have left but having been in the business, it felt wrong to abandon reservations and mess up the book. I wish I had. Reservations were pointless. We waited for our table. We waited another 20 minutes for our cocktail order which once they arrived were very good and ordered more but only saw half of 2nd round end up at our table. I'm not sure how long the food was... at least 45 minutes. A lovely salumeria style plate kept us going while waited. Frankly it became a joke at our table, "The place is beautiful, I wonder if they serve food here?" The waitress was clearly hurried and walked away twice before taking our complete order.

I hate to be that person who only reviews when they are fully happy or thoroughly annoyed. But here it is... I wanted very much to enjoy this restaurant. The food was skillful, creative and was a solid step away from American style Italian food (good). The cocktails were modern and clever. The wine was, wait, I never got my wine. I really try to give restaurants a second chance in situations like this. Maybe it was a bad night. I'm just not sure though. Watching time and wanting food is not my idea of a good dinner.

Re: “Equal=Grounds

Great place to meet, greet, make friends, relax an chill out, and drink a great variety of coffee, latte's, and espresso. Salads are fresh and delicious, as are the wraps. Oh yes, cake and ice cream for your sweet tooth. John, the Owner, is the happiest and friendliest guy in the South Wedge. Tell him "dad sent me".

Re: “Tala Vera

Though relatively small for a live music venue, the Tala Vera has something that most other venues do not: great food. Traditional Mexican style cuisine makes Tala Vera extremely special. Attentive bar staff and a friendly, attentive owner make the Tala Vera a great place to hang out with friends. The cantina has some seating, and an outside smoking area. Tala Vera also has plenty of lit parking in the lot behind the bar.

The sound from the audience perspective is amazing. If you're looking to see an acoustic, jazz, indie rock, or singer/songwriter style show with an intimate feel, Tala Vera is a great place to go. Tala Vera also hosts punk and metal shows on a variable basis, and those are a lot of fun as well.

I would love to give this establishment 5 stars, but there is really only one factor preventing me from doing so: the size of the place. While there are separate bar and music areas, they are both quite small.

If you're not afraid to meet new people, have fun, and enjoy some cool music, by all means check out Tala Vera. The cantina also does recording and videography, and maintains an active LiveStream account.
