Seth is the best!

Very good food. EXCELLENT service. Seth was a delight. Save room for dessert! If you are looking for an appetizer the calamari is super yummy.

Had an excellent time on my birthday. Waiter was very nice, efficient, and knowledgeable without being overbearing. Food came out at the perfect time and was wonderful! Great shrimp cocktail, salmon and tuna!

I have been to Nolan's many times, but this was my first visit since they moved to their new location. I found the service to be attentive and quick and the menu offered an excellent variety. We were a party of 3 and each ordered a different entree and shared part of it with the other. The food was excellent... More

We hadn't visited this popular Canandaigua restaurant since its move to a new location, and we were looking forward to a meal there. The food is very good, and generous - I had prime rib, which was actually rare, unlike what I get when I ask for that at many other eateries. But the canned mushrooms that accompanied my husband's...

We arrived at about 5 pm on a Friday evening. We did not have reservations and were told that all but two tables were reserved-one just outside the kitchen door and the other in the main traffic pattern into the restaurant. We chose one, however when we left about an hour later, the tables were less that 1/2 full. It... More

Nolan's has the best food around and Chef Bacon will never disappoint you. No matter what is ordered the food is exquisite. They are no longer on Lakeshore drive, moved to South Main Street in Canandaigua, about 1/4 mile west from where they were before .

We are locals who have eaten at Nolan's several times. Their staff is excellent and the food is just delicious. We are planning on going there this week for a birthday celebration. We highly recommend it.

My fiance and I recently visited Nolan's for the first time for a celebration dinner. We were very impressed, and even though it is a little pricey, we have put it on our short lists of favorite restaurants. The entire wait staff was totally impressive. With my back to the wall, I was able to observe them (hostess, busboy, waiters/waitresses)... More

We stop at Nolan's for a late lunch on 11/12. They put us in the greenhouse/ sunroom. It was very loud in there even though only three tables were in use. The hostess needs communication skills. She was not pleasant to speak with, no warmth at all. The server was very warm and pleasant to deal with. The menu is... More

The food at Nolan's was excellent and decently priced. The service was excellent. The atmosphere was good, though a little too open and loud for an upscale restaurant.
