The service is great and they will take time to answer any questions you have about the menu.

Depending on who you get, service can be very friendly or a little more stand-offish. Was too quiet. Needs some nice Haitian music playing discreetly in the background.

Would highly recommend it for those looking for a tasty and somewhat off-the-beaten path culinary adventure and/or those looking to support and local start up business. If the D&C spent 1/10 the actual news space to great local restaurants like this, as opposed to giving the frickin' Cheesecake Factory all sorts of free advertising disguised as "news," Rochester would have lot more cool restaurants to go to. —JasonHaremza
