2013-08-24 07:16:55   Fantastic. Have been there multiple times for work, for fun, and for brunch, and don't think there is a restaurant in Rochester serving better food. Their recipes seem incredibly polished — the pork-belly sliders are the best I've ever had (although at $5/slider they probably should be. . . ). —LePetitChien

2013-08-24 18:13:38   I was only here for drinks and not impressed. 4 drinks came to a total of $28 (!), one of which was a bottle of Corona Light. My draft beer was only 10 ounces and the busser swiped it as it sat in front of my friends while I visited the rest room. I think this place takes itself too seriously but if you like fancy drinks with made up fancy names and even fancier prices, have at it. —badfish

2013-11-08 10:02:10   Badfish, that comes out to an average of $7 a drink. Are you serious? This is one of the nicest restaurants in the city and you think $28 for four drinks is too much? Have you been to an upscale restaurant before? That's actually really cheap. This isn't a dive bar at happy hour. —alexd1234

2019-11-04 22:42:38   Good Luck prices without the Good Luck charms and quality. Seems popular but I'd rather spend my dough elsewhere. —batguano
