My boyfriend and I had dinner at Cafe 54 this past Friday and our meal was just one great surprise after another. We started with the best crab cakes I've ever had. The accompanying sauce had the perfect level of heat, but the crab cakes were great by themselves, too. I had the mahi mahi entree and my mind is still blown from the anise in the sauce. I never would have expected it, but it's really an amazing combo. My boyfriend got the rack of lamb and it was cooked perfectly. We were pleasantly surprised to find grapes in the sauce. For dessert we had peach upside down cake with homemade strawberry sauce, and it was another unexpected but amazing combination.

I can't wait to go back to Cafe 54 sometime soon and see what Vern has on his menu next. Between the deliciously executed creative menu and the cozy atmosphere this is easily my new favorite restaurant in the Rochester area. —MeganHartman

2010-03-06 15:05:31   We went to Cafe 54 on a Fri night. At pm the place was almost empty. We were seated at a nice cozy table in front of a fireplace. They come to the table with a blackboard and describe the dishes. There were only 6 things on the menu and 2 were appetizers. I would prefer more options, but we like to find the hidden gem and support the local small business as opposed to the chains. Unfortunately there wasn't really anything on the menu that my wife would enjoy. There was one dish, a BBQ Turkey and Short rib entree, however my wife doesnt like Short Ribs, so we asked if she could have just Turkey. First the waitress said she didn't think they would go for it, but I made her ask. She was right, in fact I could hear her paying the price for even asking. well, We eat out a lot and in my opinion this was a simple request, so we left and will not go back. Hey, a little advice, be a little accommodating to your customers. If you want to try this place go soon, I dont think they will be around for long. —tabascograz
