2006-02-15 12:31:32 One of the best steaks I've ever had was at Rooney's. It was about a year ago and I still remember it. Nothing modern or trendy, just good simple steak, the way it's meant to be. —RachelBlumenthal
2006-09-01 12:25:05 OK I'll admit it, I actually used to work here for a few months as a dishwasher back in 1980. It was my first job and I was 13 years old! OK, now that’s out of the way. The food here is always good and the atmosphere is really pretty romantic. I don’t go very often, but I’ve never been disappointed. —ZedOmega

2007-01-25 15:38:53 The best upscale restaurant in Rochester. The food is consistently excellent and the service is good and the atmosphere is quite nice. Without a doubt, my first choice for fine dining. Unfortunately, so many of the places I liked are gone or changed formats (The Brasserie, Rio Bamba, etc.) —RochCon
2007-11-20 19:18:06 I am going to have to try this place. I'm always looking for new and interesting places and I dislike chain restaurants. It was Pete's Bar and Grill back in my day and a real dive. —HenriettaRob
2007-11-21 10:08:28 I've been there twice now and both times it was an outstanding experience. Last night we went with a party of seven and all seven of us had no complaints. That is hard to accomplish—making seven people happy!The service was top notch and the food was out of this world delicious! —RocDiner
