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.

My husband and I enjoy our Saturday's out running errands together and choosing where to go for lunch. Nolan's seemed like a logical choice since they've always had a good reputation and we'd had dinner there with family before and had enjoyed it, but after this week's visit, it's extremely doubtful we'd return. The hostess was very 'blah' and didn't... More

It was busy on a Sunday night. The dining room was full so we sat in the bar area. We must have ordered the wrong thing because the Chicken Marsala and Veal Parmesan were the worst we have ever had. Perhaps if we had ordered a steak or burger it may have been ok but these meals are TERRIBLE!! I... More

We went to Nolans on Monday the 13th as a spur of the moment diner out for my girlfriends birthday. We sat in the atrium part of the dining room which was pleasant on the sunny afternoon. Deb had the Rueben sandwich and I had a burger. We were pleased with both. Our server was also good. The only negative... More

This restaurant was recommended by our B and B host. We arrived and were seated by a non descript hostess. Our server was friendly and informative. My husband ordered the Absolut shrimp and scallop and I ordered the Riesling festival chicken. Both were excellent. We decided to have a Caesar salad instead of the house salad. The Caesar was passable... More
