Dining Out In Rochester, NY

Commentary on Rochester, NY restaurants

Sources of Restaurant Reviews

  • City News Paper.  Excellent reliable reviews and an easy to navigate Web site makes City Newspaper your best local resource for professionally written reviews.  City Newspaper provides consistently accurate reviews.
  • Democrat and Chronicle Newspaper.  The reviewers at the D&C are excellent, but the D&C Web site is almost impossible to navigate.  Their search tools are almost not worth using.  Any other resource listed here will help you find a restaurant better than the D&C.  Annoying pop-up ads are another reason for avoiding this resource.
  • Google Restaurants.  Excellent restaurant map, but unlike the best local resources it is hard to evaluate restaurants based on the data currently available.  Google may get better as more people use it to review restaurants.  
  •  Comparing the restaurant reviews at with those of local resources I found the reviews overly positive and less credible than the best local resources. 
  • RocWiki.  The best locally created and supported restaurant review Web pages with reviews written by customers. 
  •  Another excellent Web site for finding good places to eat in Rochester, NY.  The structure and ease of use of makes is a good resource.  Lots of people use to review restaurants which makes it worth using. 
  • Urban Spoon.  Nicely designed database, but a little hard to navigate to the restaurant with the quality that you are looking for.  Like Yelp below, Urban spoon is a national database that doesn't show local restaurants locals see them. 
  • Yelp.  Probably because it is a national database of reviews it doesn't sort local restaurant types properly.  Be cautious of restaurant reviews with few reviews especially extremely good or bad reviews.  Those reviews were likely written by relatives or competitors.
