I love the Dove. Really I do. Lots of good things going for it - good food, nice staff (usually), nice ambiance, good selection of draft beers. The only thing it is missing is a pool table. And staff that is consistently attentive.

The restaurant will not take reservations for a party of two. Consequently, when confronted with a wait of about 20-30 minutes, we decided to eat at the bar. The bartender, who also was our waitress, answered all of our questions about the menu. Since my husband did not want to drink, the bartender helped me with my wine order. Although... More

We walked to the Red Dove from our hotel after having been told several times throughout the day about the interesting food here. The menu is very clever and the food was memorable. Our waitress, on the other hand, was as engaging as a wet rag. When asked her opinion about the food she shrugged. She couldn't answer menu questions... More

Wednesday is oyster nite. Excellent choice/quality of oysters for $1 per. Good selection of craft beers, ok wine list. Entrees were just ok , a bit overpriced for quality & quantity. Service was good.

Folks recommended this place or I would not have gone it. The word "tavern" in the name always suggests a bar and bar food (i.e., deep-fried). That was certainly not the case here. The food was very well prepared and included the small touches that tell you that the chefs care a lot about the food they serve. I tried... More

Fusion from the chairs to the menu. Delicious at every bite. Visiting Geneva for Wine Tasting. Stayed at Rose Petal Inn, which is walking distance on a nice night. Great combination.

Nice variety of wines and beer. Great oysters on half shell. Tried calamari, Brie & veggie sandwich, hummus, and cod &clams. Pasta dish good, too. Creme brûlée to top it off. Casual and friendly.

Nice little find in Geneva. Unconventional choices come off very well. Friendly service and reasonable prices. The strawberry shortcake dessert was not your usual fare, but was excellent!

Could see this as being a good place to hang-out with friends on a Friday night, if I lived in Geneva, that is. As it was, just had a quick dinner and a drink. Korean Chicken Wings were great! Gyro was OK - pita would have been better warm than cold - but the tzatziki sauce was the best I've... More
