Excellent place for fine dining. Nice patios, well informed and experienced servers. Bread and desserts are unique, due to having an in house pastry chef.

This is an excellent restaurant with outstanding food at reasonable prices considering the high quality of the offerings. The owners are friendly and courteous, the service is spot on, and they easily attended a very Large party I had of 13 people. It has my highest recommendation

Group of seven. Mostly great dinners. Pasta special was disappointing. Steak filets were great. Server Shiloh was very very good. Extras like bread were disappointing. Great risotto. Overall a good but mixed experience.

the vegetarian entree with hummus,& grilled vegetables was so delicious as well as the fresh focaccia. my daughter had the chicken entree which was enjoyable. I have had dinner here a few times over the course of 18 months and it seems as though the menu changes a bit (esp the vegetarian options). Service was attentive .

Wonderful experience. Elegant dining and superb food and yet friendly welcoming staff. We were there with family including a five year old, seven year old and eight year old and everyone went out of there way to make us feel welcome. Truly family friendly and an absolute gem of a restaurant.

Our food was terrible. Fish was dry and tasteless. Bread was an embarrassment. Portions skimpy and presentation was unappetizing.
Noise level was the worst we’ve experienced in Rochester.

This is our third time visiting Mendon 64. The first two time were very good and we returned for a third time. This may have been an off night but we were less impressed this time around. The food was okay, but not great. We are comfortable paying a small premium for a great restaurant in our small town but the cost/benefit this time did not come out on the positive side. My husband's fish tacos were ok. My kkale salad was drenching in dressing, which was very salty for my taste. Next time I will ask for dressing on the side.

Our waitress, while very helpful during the ordering process seemed to be very busy and we seldom saw her. Not her issue but management should be mindful of the demand and the wait staff available.

Having said all of the above, we will return for another try because of our earlier experiences and because of our support for good local restaurants.

My family enjoyed a perfect evening celebrating my daughter’s graduation from college. Everything was wonderful from the atmosphere, to the room. The food and drinks were top-notch and every bite was delicious. Our table of 11 was thrilled with everything. Thank you all for a truly memorable experience.

A special occasion venue. Our meals were very good, but for a hearty appetite perhaps a little on the lean side in portions. Desserts were excellent. Perhaps the most awkward part of the evening was actually being served food. There seemed to be no clear understanding of which plate of food went where, and that was true of appetizers through dessert..not sure what system is used to deliver plates to tables but it was clearly
not well coordinated. When our wallets recover, we may return for another celebratory occasion. Ambiance in the larger dining room was relaxed and conversational. The bar area was noisy.

My friend and I enjoyed a really delicious meal at a quiet table at Mendon 64. I love the decor and the artwork, and the waitress was very friendly and cordial. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal, but the only glitch came when I gave my charge card to the server to pay my bill, and she didn’t return it in the container. I looked around through my purse and on the floor, you get the picture. When I could get her attention, I told her that I couldn’t find my card. She hadn’t returned it.

Service was outstanding, ambience lovely and quiet enough for comfortable conversation on a Saturday night, and the food was good. However the menu was rather limited if you didn’t want red meat and the portions were very small (including appetizer).

MY HUSBAND AND I CELEBRATED OUR ANNIVERSARY AT THE MENDON HOUSE. WE COULD NOT HAVE PICKED A BETTER PLACE. WE WERE TREATED LIKE ROYALTY FROM THE MINUTE WE WALKED IN. CHEF JIMMY PREPARED AN OUTSTANDING MEAL AND THE SERVICE WAS SECOND TO NONE. THE MENDON HOUSE WILL BE PUT ON MY LIST AS THE BEST RESTAURANT IN THE ROCHESTER AREA. THE NEW OWNER IS DOING IT RIGHT BY PUTTING THE BEST OF THE BEST ALL TOGETHER IN ONE RESTAURANT....FANTASTIC.

My Husband and I go out to dinner often. We were so glad to hear that Jimmy (the chef) was at The Mendon House. We also enjoy being served by the best waiter in the area, Teddy. If you want a great meal and the very best service I would recommend trying The Mendon House, you will not be disappointed. Last Friday was our first time at The Mendon House and we will return on a regular basis.

Upon our arrival, the receptionist was too busy talking with coworkers to notice that we were there. When she did notice us, she could not find our name in the book (we had booked with Open Table) but it was not a problem and she asked us to have a seat at the bar for a few minutes. That turned out to be the highlight of the evening. It is a great bar, the room has ambience and the jazz band was super. Then things went downhill. The dining room is 'cold', noisy, and the service was slow. The waitress was wonderful but that didn't help the long lags of attention. By the way, don't order the caesar salad. The bacon looked like something that comes with the play kitchen that our daughter has.

The food was terrific. The server must have been new. She was not knowlegable at all regarding anything relating to the resturant. Not the wine, not the food, nor did she know how to pronounce a few of the dishes. We both giggled. It lightened the atmosphere. She didn't visit the table as much as one would expect. We saw her when we ordered and when she gave us the bill. The food was good the server could have used at least, an additional day of training.

We were sitting next to a large group of peoeple ,so much for the romantic part.

A last-minute Saturday night need to get out. OpenTable showed reservations available on short notice, so took the plunge to try Mendon House. Glad we did... Food was very good with a variety of flavors coming through on every option -- appetizers, salad, soup and entree. Wine list offered several non-traditional choices. Service was perfect -- conversational, engaging, prompt, not pushy. Although minor, the two areas for improvement: 1) depending on where you sit, the conversations carry throughout the dining area (although as the restaurant filled up the general noise level overcame this) and 2) the choice of broccoli and carrots as the standard vegetable side just didn't work or stand up to the other items on the entree plate.
