See Gone, But Not Forgotten

In February 2014 owner Joe McBane announced that he was closing Tap & Table and opening a new venture called Rochester Taproom in the same space. "Great drinks, live sports, pub games and a truly exciting house made sausage menu. It will not be your average sausage bar! Expect high quality and value with our usual stylish approach," he said in a message on Facebook.

On a rather quiet and empty Sunday night, we showed up and were immediately seated. It took our server about 4-5 minutes to show up with water and then she told us she would be back shortly to take a drink order. A good fifteen minutes passed from that point without seeing a single staff member. If T&T has plans to give patrons a free place to sit, undisturbed, while they drink a carafe of ice water, then they're doing a great job. If they'd like to actually sell food and drink, the service has a long way to go. Having talked with some friends and read around online, it seems this has been a somewhat frequent problem during dinner. I'm trying to verify another comment made by one of the other people I was dining with, so I may come back with an edit. —willmullaney

Had a terrific cocktail - French 88 - recommended to me by our server. Beautiful view of the river and downtown Rochester; can't wait to sit outside in the summer. —LH

The bartenders were fantastic, chatting away and helping me decide which of the specialty cocktails to try. They made tasty drinks and did a great job of leaving my date and I alone so we could chat, but still checking in regularly to see if we needed anything. Can't comment on the food or dining area, but the bar atmosphere, drinks and bartenders were great and I'm looking forward to experiencing them all again. Too bad I can't say the same for the date I was with ;) —LauraShum
