Wonderful food, poor service

It was New Year's Eve. I think the problem was the restaurant did not have an adequate amount of servers for the evening. We had to wait at least 30 minutes for our drinks, and probably another 20 minutes before our order was taken. We didn't order a multi-course meal, but were at the restaurant... read more

Had reservations at 715 on NYE, we were seated promptly by the hostess, who was nice and polite. Things went downhill from there. The server was there and took drink orders which was ok. We didn't see him for a while after that. Drinks went empty, didn't take orders. Waited for about an hour for a salad and bread basket,and... More

My wife and I eat here often. We enjoy the food, the service and the excellent wine list. If you have any questions about the wine, ask Patrick (the owner). He's very knowledgable about wines and happy to assist. They also have a page on their menu that changes with the seasons. It allows them to change things up while... More

Enjoyed a great lunch at Wildwood Restaurant. Wait staff very attentive. Meal was really good. Extensive lunch menu. Restaurant has a pub-like bar attached to it. I recommend this location while in Geneva.

Arrived at 5:30 (right on time with our reservation), seated right away, water was served right away. Small wine servings. Server was seemed energetic and knowledgeable. Checked on us only one time (immediately after being served, and before we really had an opportunity to taste anything). Never came to refill water or other drinks. Ordered a Petit filet, questioned the... More

Visited for Thanksgiving dinner with sister and brother-in-law. We were greeted and seated immediately, and had time to look over the extensive wine menu before ordering a wine before dinner. We all ordered the turkey (they also offered prime rib) - it was excellent! The squash-apple soup was good, but a bit tasteless. The salad was very good. The side... More

I have been here once before for a business dinner, and it was very good. This time, the food and the service were poor.. The waiter was rushed, and did not give us any time at all It felt like a drive thru. Hurry, and off to the next table. We waited quite a bit of time before he even... More

Dinner on Sunday night was nice. While the restaurant was busy it wasn't so crowded you couldn't carry on a conversation. Sadly though by Sunday night a number of the menu items were not available. However the selections we did select were well prepared and plated. The bone in Pork Chop was prepared to perfection. Our server was cordial and... More

Four of dined here for my brother's birthday. We spent $400 without tip. I have had much better for my money. Our server was not very attentive. The restaurant was not busy so there was no reason for bad service. We had the octopus and escargot apps. Both were decent, but nothing to brag about. Three people had steak and... More
