Went with a sizable group of friends for a birthday get together. Didn't have a reservation but were seated right away.Having never had real German food it far exceeded any expectations I had. Got the garlic schnitzel, absolutely amazing. Not being a beer drinker, and yet being a German restaurant, I was impressed with their wine selection. It was fun... More

We showed up for lunch, going in the side door. I believe the front door was closed because it is off season. The waitress was excellent and explained the tastes of everything correctly. We had three different dishes--the sauerbraten was declicious and the German beer was very good. I had a glass of mulled wine that was also a nice... More

This is a small, charming German restaurant on the "main drag" of Canandaigua, in the Downtown area. There is not an abundance of ambiance but well placed knick knacks with German flavour abound. The waitresses are in costume but it does not appear cloying but rather very classy and attractive. There is a large beer/wine list but we did not... More

Others have written about entering through the kitchen. It looks like a dump, but our three main dishes (the sausage plate, the schweinbraten and the jaeger schnitzel) were all well cooked and very tasty. Service was fast and friendly.

What fun I'm having! Once a month I take my granddaughter to dinner. We pick a different cuisine every time. She never had authentic German cooking. No better place to take her than Rheinblick's. Fortunately, she's eager to try different foods. She LOVED Rheinblick's. Not only the food but the atmosphere, the service, friendliness, German music . . . She... More

Rheinblick's is one of the hidden dining treasures of Canandaigua and the finger Lakes. This place takes me back to the days that I was in Germany. The food has not been altered to Americana settings. It has maintained its original German flavors and settings. Add their wonderful German beers to your meal and you're back in Bavaria relaxing at... More

My daughter thought we should have German food for dinner so we stopped into Rheinblick on a whim. The hostess and servers were all dressed in traditional German attire and were very friendly. We were seated quickly (on a Saturday night). The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Salads were fresh and well prepared with a lovely mustard... More

Absolutely authentic German food in small Canandaigua, NY on Main St. just off Route 20, to include PIls from Bavaria. Had a terrific sauerbraten lunch plate with spatzle and red cabbage. Great service, very reasonably prices and nice atmosphere right down to the music. 7 years in Germany, this place was just like being back there!!
