The place is always packed and probably has been since 1902 when it opened. Very clean for never being remodeled since 1930. —MrRochester

2008-12-17 18:00:38   Cheap and delicious. Had lunch here last month. Can recommend without hesitation the beans and greens. Don't expect to linger or have intimate conversation, however. They pack 'em in tight and get you in and out in 30 mins or so. It was made clear, in a friendly, subtle-but-firm, grandmotherly way, that we were done with our lunch and should make room for the next folks.

Neighborhood is not scary, at least during the day, just poor. I will definitely be back. —JasonHaremza

2009-02-03 17:34:37   definitely a popular and crowded place for lunch and a place to be seen...but...the food begs me to ask why —CJBarnhart

The fish was cooked perfectly but the sauce was bland and watery and the French is all about the sauce. The second time I had a bowl of Seafood Bisque and it was WAY too salty and I love me some salt. I don't eat red meat so maybe this is why my experience has differed from others. —JulianaMack

Someone (from the suburbs maybe) posted that it's in a scary neighborhood. Not true. Infact a Rochester Police Dept substation is right across the street! —LindaKunz
