We shared the mussels in white white, delicious and the bread to sop up the sauce was scrumptious. The beet salad was quite tasty, just enough dressing. I had the Faroe island salmon with quinoa, very good. My husband had special prawns, excellent flavors. We had 4 glasses of different wines which was fun to try different ones, some from... More

Have been here before. Don't bother to even look at the menu. They always have specials. They also leave you said specials written down so you do not have to really pay strict attention. Casual dress. Take awhile to get your order as everything is done dress and as it comes in. I spied 3 in the kitchen. Worth the... More

Located right on Seneca lake this restaurant offers a great view of you get the right seat. The food is mostly organic and you can taste the difference. I had a steak which I don't normally so at a restaurant because I end up disappointed. However this one was actually worth the money.

This restaurant was recommended by a winery we stopped at. The food overall was excellent. Our party had the soup of the day, calamari, veal, lamb & scallops. The soup was a little lacking, but everything else was delicious. Our server was excellent in the beginning but must have been a bit distracted towards the end of our meal. He... More

Just stupendous!! Their food is not only spectacular but reasonably priced as well as fantastic service. We were visiting the Finger Lakes (Seneca Lake) for our Honeymoon and just happened to have had dinner there the last day of our stay. I wish we would have found this earlier in our stay. We can't stop talking about how superb their... More
