Good food!

Very good food, nice staff and good service. We heard this was a popular place but we were lucky to get a table on a Saturday night. No regrets!

I have been to Naples several times and never knew about this cute little quaint restaurant. Every food item we ordered was cooked to perfection, Chef is very talented, we will be visiting more often when we visit Naples.. Thank you.

Got lost and stumbled upon this Lil gem. Excellent service and excellent food. My wife had the Talipia special and I had the scallops, both cooked to perfection. Excellent wine list, make this one of your stops if in the area.

What a lovely little restaurant In Bristol Springs. The food was excellent, the service was great and the whole feel is warm, friendly and casual. We had the scallops which were outstanding and the freshly made corn soup was delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant if you're in the area

We closed out our Finger Lakes vacation with a family dinner at Brown Hound Bistro. We were seated on their wrap around porch. I got the seat with the direct sun but it only lasted a few minutes. We shared apps, including a duck breast and soba noodle salad, heirloom tomato salad, and a veggie and goat cheese flat bread.... More

When we're down at the lake (Canandaigua) we tend to stay put and enjoy the lake, cooking our own meals. However good friends of ours who have been here many times, talked us into going out for dinner with them. Wow. We are so glad we did! Everything about the night we fantastic.

I have had the pleasure of visiting the Brown Hound many times now. It is always the place I choose when I am celebrating a birthday or special occasion. Mostly, because I know my meal and my guests meals will always be amazing to the pallet and fresh. Is it expensive? A bit more than I would want to pay... More

I had the pleasure of returning to the Brown Hound for Sunday brunch now that they have reopened for the season. We had a great time eating outside on the terrace and the server was very helpful with tons of suggestions. I had wanted to give the cinnamon swirl French toast a second chance since it was chewy last time... More

We so appreciate a complete review and an honest critique. We've tweaked our French Onion recipe this year to make it vegetarian and it took a few tries to get it right! Hope you'll try it again next time you visit. Doubling up on the quiche now, too, as the beautiful organic eggs we get from Beau Teed farms combined... More
