Awesome food, great atmosphere. Had dinner there with my wife and her parents last night. All four of us shared a bottle of wine and some appetizers. And then ordered fantastic meals - ribeye steak, seafood stuffed haddock, and seared yellow fin tuna... All cooked perfectly and quickly. Had a great time and would push anyone to try it!!! You...

The food at this place continues to amaze me. These were the second and third times we have eaten there and it doesn't get any better than this. Our friends with us have eaten in fine restaurants all over the world and insisted on eating here the second night after their dinner the first night. Many kudos to the chef... More

Best meal in the finger lakes. W have been visiting the finger lakes for a few years and finally planned ahead enough to make reservations to actually get dinner at this place. We'll worth it! Biggest problem was to make sure we had reservations. Everything we've tried in three visits has been outstanding!

On our recent wine-buying trip to the Finger Lakes our friends took us to Ports Café. They warned me that the ambiance was nonexistent, the bathroom situation crude, and most likely the place would be noisy but the food would be heavenly. They were certainly right. The food was phenomenal. The chef created food that was utterly superb. Imaginative, plentiful,... More

We just went on our first visit to the FingerLakes. The first night, we went to dinner at Ports. It was a Friday night, the place was crowded and we didn't have a reservation. They were able to seat us, however. Since it was winter, the seating was confined to the indoor space they had. It was so LOUD! Terrible... More

My husband and I have been going to the Fingerlakes for the past couple years, in March to get away. This year we invited friends to come along with us and my friend's husband is a big "trip advisor junkie" so he scoped out different places to eat. Based on the outstanding reviews, he suggested Ports Cafe. I am so... More

My friend was celebrating her 60th birthday and we wanted to make it special for her. The best night to go to Ports is on Wednesday because they have a lovers special that is $30 per... More

I have a love/hate relation with this place. The food is truly superb, some of the best to be found in the Finger Lakes. The ONLY problem with this place is the acoustics. When it gets crowded, it gets loud and I can't even hear the conversation at my table. This may not be a problem for you if you... More

Last night we ate at Port's Cafe for the "nth" time . We love it! HOWEVER, in the many years that we have enjoyed dinners there, the bathroom situation has remained the same. Last night, perhaps because it was 14 degrees out, we said ENOUGH! The one (unisex) bathroom is unconscionably primitive and UNHEATED. It is an insult to customers,... More
