This was recommended to us to try. We went on "Crusin Night" in Geneva. We went early to avoid the crowd, (about 4:30), but we were just one of two parties in the place. So, wasn't necessary to rush The place is small, but comfortable. I'm told they have a great deep fried Chic Pea. But, I didn't dare try... More

The food as well, duck, zucchini flowers, smelts etc ... All cooked perfectly ... Great date place or perfect for fine different foods ... Salute... More

The minute my Wife and I walked in it reminded both of us of our favorite restaurant in Saugerties NY. Small, quaint and welcoming. The food was very good. It was the first and only time I will ever eat there. Would definitely recommend it.

Looks like a tavern with a small storefront. Inside, though, they have interesting food well-prepared and a nice wine list.

Red Dove is trying to be something special but it seems to be an uphill battle. The menu is limited, regular menu items like appetizers and sandwiches are reasonably priced, which makes this place attractive to young bar patrons. The entrees are a bit more pricey, a little too pricey for this location and for the run down décor. The... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to get 2 of the 24 coveted seats, for a wine pairing dinner with Red Dove Tavern and Atwater Winery. The food was amazing!!!! We started the evening in the tasting room, with a delightful watermelon gazpacho, and petite rabbit salad sandwiches, served with Atwater's Cuvée Brut--wonderful flavor match! Then we drove down...

The food is delicious, always fresh tasting. The cheesy shrimp and grits are wonderful as are the deep fried chickpeas.

I was traveling on business and found this place on TA. It was a great find, really cool menu and a ton of great beer choices. I tried the small plate options (duck wings and steamed clams with peas and shoots) they were fantastic. The house made humus was very good. Great place to grab a beer and get something... More

Unique menu, great local wines, and good food. My wife and I shared the oysters, grilled feta, and shrimp pil pil. All went great with the Riesling. Topped off with a small, but delicious chocolate dessert!
