Rochester Dining Landscape

Hello Rochester hounds. I grew up in the Rochester area but currently live in Brooklyn, New York. I'm back in the area to visit my family a couple times a year and wanted to know about the restaurant scene Rochester has to offer.

Specifically, I was wondering if anyone has information about Warfield's High Point in Victor: From the little I've read about the restaurant, it looks nice. I have a reservation next week and was told by the manager that they feature tasting menus (although not posted on their website). Will be sure to report back after my meal.

The other restaurant I'm curious about is Good Luck. I've read many positive reviews here, which in turn has prompted me to make a reservation. If all goes well, I'll be tempted to book a reservation for their Chef's Table when I return for Christmas. Has anyone experienced this, and if so, what format did you choose? I'm very interested to see where they source their seafood from (especially the langostine) and would love to hear any feedback re these experiences.

A couple of restaurants that I've enjoyed on previous trips home have included:

I've been to Lento a couple of times now and love how chef Rogers embraces the same farm to table concept, featured at his previous restaurant Primo, and has brought it with him to Rochester. While the concept is great, execution has been hit-or-miss, and I hope for their sake that the kitchen becomes more consistent.

Been to Max at Eastman's, Rio Bamba or whatever they call it now, Jo Jo's, but not 2 Vine or Black and Blue. Anyways, all of your thoughts are appreciated.

Good Luck
