O.K. food but a great wine list

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.

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!

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...

The prime rib here was moist, tender and flavorful. Service was very attentive as well. Hmm ... only 87 characters. This 100 character minimum dissuades people from contributing.

I will start with the fact that we LOVE Wildwood's bar and their bartender. It is a classic dark wood bar that is great to go in and have a drink in the afternoon or early evening. We just went for their Mother's Day brunch, which would make that the second time we have eaten here. Their staff was excellent,... More

This place is financially hurting. They close their doors for dining on week nights now at 8:30. BUT don't feel sorry for them! They pass their money troubles on to the Customer by DILUTING their LIQUOR with WATER - and then deny it! Gin on the rocks is hard to Dilute without a gin drinker noticing. It's a father son...

My husband and I enjoyed a quiet meal on a Friday night here. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the food as well as Geneva. The food was hot and very good. It was a great way to begin a quick weekend away.
