For mothers day my older sister ended up making reservation to go to cresent beach for brunch. We had seven people that were going to be all together this also included my grandparents. well after them letting us know that we would be sitting upstairs we asked if there would be a way for us to sit downstairs because my grandfather uses a walker. The manager said there would be no way that this would happen. we then asked well are u handicapped accessable, and they again repeted no. So they told us they would rather loose business and have us cancel the reservation. so after this happened we took our money else where. what kind of place is not handicapped accessable? This was rediculouse.

i have been there many times. when i was there for a wedding reception it was outstanding. when i have dined there with my own group you need reservations or you may have a substantial wait. the food and service are always top notch. the atmosphere is beautiful year round.

Not even 1 star does this place deserve. We held my mother's 80th birthday there yesterday. The place was filthy dirty both inside and out. The food was disgusting beyond belief and almost unedible....the bisque (if that is what it is called) was devoid of any seafood whatsoever, the broccoli was much, the pasta stuck toegther like it was days old, the chicken all pasty and gooey. The fruit didn't look healthy and the cheescake (unrefridgerated) was left out for hours on end in the heat! I remember how beautiful this place was years ago and it is sad to think what it has become. We have spent many a hundreds of dollars there throughout the years, but this restaurant has now seen my last dollar! IT is a miracle that they haven't been reported to the board of health!

The dining experience my family and I had at The Crescent Beach this past Mother's Day was truly abysmal. To add insult to injury, a letter I wrote to the owner/manager and sent the next day went completely unresponded to. Besides the 45 minute wait for a table we had reserved over a week in advance, the editing--severely--of the buffet menu from when we had been there on Grandparents' Day (no crab legs, no roast pork, no chocolate fountain, no dessert bar, no complimentary champagne), the food that ran out and was never refilled, BESIDES all that, they raised the regular price of the buffet by seven dollars a head and added a twenty percent gratuity ON TOP OF THE TAX. In my letter I pointed out that in the first place, the service was terrible. We only saw our waiter twice, and the second time he dumped coffee all over the table. In the second place, twenty percent is the amount you tip for a sit down dinner with exemplary service, not a self-serve buffet. And finally you NEVER figure in a gratuity AFTER you add the tax. Four adults and three tiny children six and under generated a bill just short of $200--with the $32 "tip," of course. Oh, and the food was mediocre; the wait in line was long; and the buffet only rarely (no pun intended) had roast beef on it--we had to make four trips down from the mezzanine to finally "score" a slice. Their site says the brunch menu "differs" on holidays from the regular buffet. It sure does, but I would have thought that meant it was more special--not far inferior and far more expensive. I made all of these points in my unanswered letter, and that lack of a response was the final disappointment. The Crescent Beach chose to exploit an important holiday and ignore a customer complaint, and that's just bad business. We definitely won't return, not even on non-holidays, and it's only five minutes from our home.

I was at a wedding reception that was held in their outside tent. The dj's sound was cut about 5 times because there is a sound monitor that the restraunt owners installed. This monitor cuts the dj's music system when the noise level inside the tent exceeed "acceptable limits". The only times it was cut was when we were singing to songs or applauding the bride and groom. The music even cut in the middle of the dancing when we applauded the bride and groom! The dj told us it was not his equipment, but was something that cut his power when we were apparently "too loud".

The Food and Service staff was great but that sound silencer was a real bummer.

Pros: On a sunny day, the fountains and gardens are beautiful.

Cons: The sound monitor in the outside tent was a party killer.

Looking for ANY resturaunt on Christmas Day was tough! Crescent Beach was open. The D&C offered no good reviews so, I was walked in expecting to be negative. We had a reservation (same day I called-on Christmas). Beutifully decorated, and a window seat. We did the $28.99 buffet. Food was spectacular! Garlic mashed pot, swt pot w/walnuts, fresh g. beans, seafood tortallini, roast pork, roast beef, prime rib, salad(s) pasta, rolls and the snacky veggies. The tira'misu was to die for! 2 adults and a 10 yr old (counted as adult). With tax and tip, on Christmas, $140.00. We will be sure to be back for more holidays to come! I hope they have such great food on the normal days!

Pros: views, food, service

The Crescent Beach Hotel is one of the landmark restaurants of Rochester. It offers excellent food with beautiful gardens, fountains, and views of Lake Ontario. Take your out of town guests here to give them a taste of Rochester at its finest. The service is also friendly and professional.
