I recently ate at the Crystal Barn and my dinner was ok, but nothing amazing.

But this is one of the few true upscale dining establishments left in Rochester (and the country) even though it is in an old Barn. Sorbet to cleanse your palate between courses is always a great way to dine. —MrRochester

My husband's Sole Wellington seemed ok but nothing spectacular and then he felt nauseous all night. The wine that was suggested wasn't close in character to what I said I was looking for. Bread, salad and dessert was good. Wouldn't ever go back for those prices without the quality! —rsimmons

My date became violently ill after eating the Beef Wellington, which he noticed contained uncooked pastry dough. Uncooked dough is a surefire way to get a stomach bug—worse than uncooked chicken!! —JosephMark

Even if you use an egg wash, any Good Eats fan can tell you that you have only a 1 in 20,000 chance of getting an egg with salmonella. —DamianKumor
