$1 Oyster day. Small oysters, little brine. Have had other deals similar, much better product. Chicken dish was average at best.

I had to send my Eggs Benedict back twice. The first time it was because the eggs were hard. The dish looked like it had been sitting under the warmer too long. The second time the hollandaise sauce was watery as well as the eggs very hard for a benedict. I was very disappointed.

Consistently great food and service. We travel to Pittsford a few times a year and the Erie Grill is always on the agenda.
Can't wait to go back!

Great food, lovely view (if near the windows) with a very reasonable price point. And if you can't find a dessert item to your liking on their menu, pop over to Pittsford Dairy for ice cream or any of their assortment of pastries!

Our food (3 salads) took a very long time. When it arrived the server said it was because we asked for substitutions/additions and that took awhile to enter into the computer... We each added goat cheese to our salads and one was asked to leave out the quinoa. Should not have taken 50 minutes. They were delicious but it made us late for our next event

The halibut with pepper risotto was fantastic. Great view of the canal and dessert cocktails were an excellent ending to a lovely dinner. I would come back

I've been to the Erie Grill numerous times. There is one particular waiter who has a major case of passive aggressive behavior. I love the food and the place, but cringe every time he is my server. I don't think I'll be going back, for dinner at least.

Enjoyed our meal tremendously, steaks and lamb chops were perfectly prepared
, delicious and nicely presented. We were lucky to get a quieter table as noise from the bar can be intrusive. Marnie, our server, was excellent and attentive. Wine at $5 glass special was a bonus.

Good, but not great experience. Sat by kitchen entrance. 👎🏻 Came for Monday Night Oysters only to find out they were sold out by 6pm... but then found out some other ‘regulars’ called and ordered them before their arrivals so even though they arrived an hour+ after us they were able to get them. Off putting was our general feel from this as we were out to celebrate and came there specifically for them. Also it was way too loud considering most tables around us were not seated until later in our meal. Server was pleasant, but slow to get us started.

Our server was very attentive. The food was delicious. Unfortunately, we were seated in the bar area and my husband and I couldn't even hear each other talk. We were there celebrating our anniversary and his birthday so it would have been nice to have been seated in the dining area where the noise level would have been much less.

Your female bar tender staff is sensational! they suggested reasonable wines I didn’t know being a Californian ...and even where to buy... I am taking the Sheldrake Rose home!!
The ricotta pistachio appetizer is sex...
The chicken Milanese w panko is the best I have had anywhere and I even make this for my dinner parties.
Clever menu. My all time favourite restaurant in upstate NY
Thank you

We had great service at our Father's Day brunch. We wanted to share oatmeal and fruit as an appetizer before our main courses and the waitress brought us beautiful separate portions. Everything was great!

Excellent as always
The staff were very helpful and offered a great small apple tart with a candle for my friend's birthday. Unfortunately there was a table with several girls that were shouting with each other rather than speaking to each other.
The food was very good as always
We will definitely be back

The food was outstanding. I had the scallops, they were flavorful, properly cooked (not over) and seasoned. They were served with some sweet potatoes as substitute to the mashed to accommodate my lactose intolerance . I did not feel like I was missing on the flavor.

Food is consistently good. Healthy options and enjoyable selections. I wish they had fresh brewed ice tea. Seems like they should.
Service is consistently average.
But the view is great.

The service and food was excellent. My only negative comment would be the noise level. Conversations were a little challenging unless you’re seated next to the person. We were seated in the first area. It was much quieter in the bar area. Our waitress was spot on with service and knowledge of the menu.

Vegetable wrap not as described (more like pickles). Sent back for a replacement which I would expect should have been comped as half of the table was done eating by the time my food came. Very loud.

I have eaten twice at Erie Grill. Both times I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, and so did my guests. I highly recommend the rack of venison. The atmosphere is very relaxing, and has a good view of the Erie Canal. I highly recommend the Erie Grill.

A perfect place to meet friends or have a date night! Food is excellent; atmosphere is cheery and beautiful! The service was outstanding! Tuesday nights are $ 5.00 wine and 1/2 price bottles so the energy is high in the bar area. We love it and will go again. Their breakfast and lunches are also fantastic! I highly recommend this restaurant.
