On Wednesday, June 19th I was eating lunch at Panzari’s Italian Bistro between the hours of 1pm and 2:20pm. Due to the lunch time the rush, the parking lot was very full so I parked outside of your pub which is located in the same parking lot as Panzari’s. When I had finished lunch, I went back to my car to find it missing. I went into your pub and spoke with a bartender asking her if she saw someone take my car and was told that it was probably towed. She was very aloof and didn’t seem to know where any of the signs were in the parking lot giving me the name of the towing company or why it was towed. I eventually found a sign noting the towers name and address, however the red & white sign above this sign stated that the parking lot was for restaurant and shopping patrons; I was a restaurant patron. Because this sign states you must be a restaurant patron to park in the parking lot and my car was towed even though I was visiting a restaurant in this lot, I believe I was a victim of predatory towing. The City of Rochester law (ordinance 83-317, section 108A-7) regarding towing practices clearly states, “The signs shall state that unauthorized vehicles will be towed at the vehicle owner's expense and shall contain the towing company's name, the telephone number to call to retrieve towed vehicles, and the street address where towed vehicles may be retrieved.” I took video and pictures of all the signs in that parking lot and can prove that there is no sign that states the parking places in front of Nathaniel’s Pub are specifically reserved for patrons of the pub while also stating that if you park there, your car can be towed at the owner’s expense. I can also prove by my restaurant receipt from Panzari’s along with having a witness with me who was also having lunch that I was there between this timeframe. Needless to say, I will never again be going to the Corn Hill Landing Plaza owned by Mark IV Enterprises, prowled by TNT Recovery & Flowercity Towing and will be telling everyone I know about my experience.

The atmosphere is comfortable and funky, and the coffee is good, but the music is always too loud to get anything done. So if want to socialize and/or have something to drink and a bit to eat, it's fine. But if you want to sit back and sip on a hot (or cold) drink and read or get some work done, this is not the place. I like the music (mostly), but the volume makes it hard to concentrate on anything - which is irritating. Too bad...

I am new to the Canandaigua area (although originally from the Rochester area). They are in the process of completely remodeling the bar and it looks great. They have great live music at least to nights a week and everyone there is wonderful. I would recommend stopping in if you haven't ever been or if you haven't been in awhile.

Wow, I left completely baffled at the treatment my husband and I received at this place.The Staff is a mess, and the owner needs to overhaul its employees. You can check out the whole review on Google reviews (This site wont allow for the whole review) I would not suggest for anyone to go to this place, unless you enjoy being treated like an inconvience rather than a customer.

I live in Corn hill. I stopped in for a rum and D.coke bfore heading to the Amerks game. I returned to this place PLANNING on another. but realized they had towed my car. I can only assume this was because I was AT the Amerks game. Really? I guess I will just have to go to Tony D's from this day forward. and to think I have been to many work party's here too. Sorry. NEVER EVER again (thank you Taylor Swift)

We recently went to Nathaniel's. I know in the past there has been a lot of complaints, but they really seem to be trying to get things into better shape. There are new friendly faces, the food was great, and the atmosphere was a lot of fun!! Things seem to have definitely changed for the better!!! Give them a second chance!!! And the staff was talking about new upcoming entertainment they were looking into. We will definitely be back!!

hands down, the worst bar in Rochester. The staff is terrible. I waited for almost 20 min at the end of the bar before someone even passed by me to say he'd be right with me. Another 10 min went by and I left. The bar tenders care about talking to their friends instead of actually working. I advise everyone to stay away from this place at all costs. I'd rather drink at Murphy's Law where they charge $10 a drink than ever go back to this place.

The food is horrible. The staff is even worse. The bartender (the tall one) has a real bad attitude and causes scenes in front of guests. I am a restaurant owner I was just checking out the competition. Should not be a problem. If that bartender worked for me I would have fired him on the spot. He was belligerent and rude. What a mess.
