We had a great first experience at the Erie Grill. Our waitress was extremely friendly and attentive. We sat at a quiet table for 2 with a beautiful view of the canal. We enjoyed both of our meals. My filet of beef was cooked perfectly. Great way to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary - thanks for making it special!

Our first time dining inside since the pandemic. We were very pleased with the way they socially distanced everyone. We had a table in the middle of the room with plenty of space away from other diners. Our waitress did a great job. We shared the meat and cheese board, which was excellent. We then shared the special grilled peach salad and the scallops with couscous special, once again, all excellent. I would highly recommend Erie Grill and will be going back next time we're in Rochester.

We went to Erie Grjll and did accept sitting at a high top table, but this didn’t really feel like a table acceptable for dining.

Our drinks were fantastic, and the bartender was amazing. The appetizer which was the cheese and meat tray was pretty good.

The food was not the quality it has been in the past. My mom and sister got Panko breaded chicken with salad, and it came out so fried. I got the burger which I paid 20 dollars for and it came with a couple of fries and didn’t taste like anything gourmet.

Our desert was interesting- we got the turtle cheesecake which was served with popcorn on top covered in chocolate. This just didn’t go together .

All in all we spent 300.00 and the seating and food were not worth the price. The cocktails were great though.

Johanna was great! Food was great! We were seated next to a party of eight that were very loud. We were celebrating our 38th anniversary and at times we could even hear each other. I found them to be very inconsiderate.

We love the Erie Grill and our first visit back after the shut down was great. They have implemented great practices for social distancing and safety. The food and service were what we have come to expect from this restaurant. It is much quieter now of course, and we enjoyed that.

We were happy to be the first diners when they reopened and Erie Grill did not disappoint. The food, service and atmosphere always top notch. The chicken cutlet, filet mignon and lamb chops were were favorites of our group.
One of Rochester's top dining spots.

One of the best restaurants in Rochester area. Food is always top of the line, and they consistently have new and unique specials. The bar tenders Matt and Maria are very friendly and make exceptional drinks. The wait staff are extremely professional and very good at routine stops to make sure you have everything you need (i.e., another glass of wine)!

Went to brunch and my Egg Benedict were under-cooked and slimy; the Hollandaise was tasteless. The waitress brought new eggs; she was terrific but seriously, if you can't poach eggs and make a decent hollandaise, the quintessential food items for brunch, then learn.

Jacqueline was my server and she was professional, pleasant and helpful in our menu selection. I was dining with friend celebrating our friendship. I dine at Erie Grill with my husband often because we love the food and ambiance.
Jacqueline is my favorite server. I will ask for her the next time I dine at Erie Grill.

Lovely atmosphere and good service but overpriced food for the quality. Most dishes were around $30 and I think this place should be listed as $$$ instead of $$.

The Erie Grill is a great option for lunch in Pittsford Village. It is a more sophisticated setting then other choices in the Village. The staff is experienced and professional. I think the menu is well thought-out and the specials are great.

My wife and I visited for the Sunday Brunch. I am glad we made a reservation because the rooms were just about full when we arrived for the 11:15 reservation.
Our server was very professional, and the service was appropriately fast, but not rushed. The menu was varied, with combinations that I have never seen before.
