Tastings In Pittsford Ny

Recommended Posts

We are going to the Finger Lakes on Weds evening for our Honeymoon. I was wondering if anyone has ever Dined at Tastings in Pittsford NY? I saw they were listed on here as having gluten free options. I tried calling but they are closed on Monday's. I will try back tomorrow. I was thinking since it is Wegmans place, they would understand the gluten free and all. Anyone have any experiences they care to share?

Alright, update time.

I called Tastings today and I am very impressed. I spoke with the woman who answered the phone, Lacey, who faxed me over a note saying that most of their menu items can be made gluten free. They said although they do not have a set gluten free menu, they can make any dish to accomodate gluten free so if I have a favorite dish or something I have in mind that is not on their menu to let them know.

I logged on to their website and downloaded the menu, picked 3 meals I was interested in. I called back the restaurant to confirm. Lacey was already gone for the day, but the other girl I spoke to was also just as helpful. She said they have customers who have celiac come in on a daily basis so I had nothing to worry about. She did want the head chef to talk to me, and so she took the meals I wanted and my phone numbers, he was not in today but he would be back tomorrow. She said they were located next to a Wegmans and they had open access to any special gluten free requests I might have. She told me the staff was very aware of celiac and the special precautions to take, as far as meal handling and what not. She told me they would make sure our honeymoon dinner in their place was very well. They wanted to make me enjoy it most of all.

So I made our reservations and I hung up feeling very excited. I did not feel like an inconvience once, all they wanted to do was set my mind at ease and get me exactly what I needed. I cannot wait to write about our dinner. :)

I've been to Tastings twice pre-diagnosis, and wow. Awesome, awesome restaurant. I'm certainly not aware of anything else like it in Western NY (except maybe in Ithaca).

They did a great job of handling our table last time I was there- one soy-free halal, one halal, one kosher-vegetarian, one no-meat-except-fish, and two people who eat everything :)

They even checked the vanilla extract in the desserts for alcohol (any sort of alcohol = non-halal), which we hadn't thought of at all.

Please post about how your meal was! My parents live close to Pittsford and I'd love to be able to eat at Tastings again. ("Oh, no, Mom, we *have* to go to Tastings, it's the only place I can get gluten-free!" hehe)

I hope it's wonderful.

Hi Everyone!

Awesome Experience at Tastings!!!!

We made reservations which I think is a very good idea, that place filled up while we were there and it was only on a Thursday Evening.

When we came in, the girl who was the hostess said, you must be Amanda. I have alerted your server that you are celiac. This is will be a worry free meal for you. She was right. I had gotten a fax from them two days prior, that said they could accomdate celiacs and that although they do not have a straight gluten free menu that may items could be changed to be gluten free.

My server came over and she was wonderful. She told me that many celiacs come to Tastings to eat so the staff was very versed in gluten free (which I expected since it is a Wegmans chain)

I ordered the Angus strip and my server came over and did say that my meal may not come out as stated on the menu, if there is something I cannot have the chef will replace it with something else.

I had a baslamic salad which was really good.

The Angus steak with carmamelized mushrooms. I had some sort of flaky potato, which was subed in since I could not have the potato crusted thing that was on the menu. There was a side of Rappi as well. The meal heavenly.

The service was amazing. I never once had to worry about water refills, there was a male server who came around and always topped off the water glasses. We did not have room for desert which we were going to have Creme Brulee.

I was overall pleased. This was the first real worry-free meal I had. The staff was more than helpful. I hope to go back there again.

I sent them a very nice comment card :)
