This is a great addition to Upstate dining. Really great food and wonderful wine list and lovely, friendly service. This is a place for a nice leisurely dinner. Now how would this foodie New Yorker improve this place? Smaller portions (yes smaller!) and even a few less ingredients in some of the dishes. I think a few could have been... More

Whenever in the Finger Lakes...this is a "must do" for dinner! The food is superb and the variety is outstanding. So glad I found this gem.

As others have stated, the outside does not reflect the quality of the place. We thought we were at the wrong restaurant at first, looks like a dive bar. Once inside though, it's more a quaint looking restaurant, and the food is REALLY good. Lots of specials, seems 80% of the food they sell is that type. We had mussels,... More

Everything was exceptional...food and service on point. Our dinner selections were all from the special list and cooked to perfection. Erika was a wonderful server who balanced careful attention to our table and others...she was very busy and provided us with impeccable service. For those who have never been to Ports, here's a snapshot of our dinner: Apps: Parmesan tuiles... More

I’ve always been a huge fan of Port’s Café, and my past two visits there (two Saturdays in a row!) were no exception. Highlights of Ports that make it a great place to spend a night out: Knowledgeable wait staff. The first Saturday, our server was able to confidently recommend a bottle of wine based on preferences we gave him.... More

Do not let the modest exterior of Port's deceive you; this is hands-down, the best restaurant in Geneva. Online, their menu may seem acceptable, but in the restaurant their long list of specials never disappoints. I have had many meals here, but never a bad one. From their nachos to their pasta, their filet mignon to their mahi-mahi, their talents... More

Had a very good dinner with friends on a Tuesday nite. We had reservations at 7:30 & we seated promptly. The restaurant was full & the noise levels made it difficult to hear each other. The dining room has nothing on the walls, ceiling or floors to absorb some of the noise. By 8:30 the dining room was much less... More

Great food and service. The best meal I had while in Geneva. I cant wait for a reason to return. The steak was very good, and the arugula salad was to die for.
