OK for lunch, but just OK.

Had lunch here with several business associates. Outdoor in the shade was nice on a hot day. My guests found their selections to be good..unfortunately I don't remember what they had...it was different from mine which was chicken salad on a croissant. I found my sandwich to be basically... read more

We have given this place a couple of tries recently. The service has been great and the outside seating is nice. Unfortunately the food is not very good and is overpriced.

Took my friend for her 60th birthday expecting a nice steak. Had to send the filet back as it was tough and cooked at medium as requested. Second try was better. Side salads nothing to rave about. I called ahead and asked them to remember her birthday. That didn't happen and so I had to remind them again. At over... More

I like to eat outside at restaurants whenever I can. Unfortunately, many places have their outside area too close to busy streets which takes away a lot of the ambiance. This restaurant, just off of 3rd street in Geneva, is an exceptions. The outside area is away from the road and adjoins a courtyard with flowers and running water. A... More

Great place to sit outside and enjoy a wonderful meal. We had a wedge salad and fish special and both were fresh. The waiter was wonderful and suggested the food and wine for us and he was very knowledgeable about their choices. I would definitely go back here especially during the summer!

Overall I thought the food was O.K. but not great. I had the seasonal risotto which was fine but not much flavor. On the other hand the wine list was excellent, some what expensive but most were excellent choices.

Not sure if it was the beautiful Sunday morning, the good friends we were dining with or just the fact that the food, drinks and service were wonderful - but we really enjoyed Wildwood! I would love to go back for a steak dinner sometime. We sat outside in a lovely flower-filled setting in downtown Geneva. Although I ordered a... More

This was our first dining experience here and it was for Father's Day Brunch. The service was slow. Our server was running pretty good so he was probably overworked because they were understaffed. We overheard a request from another table to be moved to a table in the shade. The first hostess said nope, not allowed and walked away. The... More

We have lived in the area a long time and finally decided to try eating here. Big mistake. First, our server was frazzled. She complained she was too busy and usually doesn't work the outside tables (and this is our fault how?). Second, she took one drink order and left the table (there were 3 of us) and came back...
