Fun find

On a quick trip through Geneva NY the Red Dove was recommended to us while we were on a winery/brewery visit. Great find. Fairly busy but friendly and helpful service. It was dollar oyster night (bonus!!). Great draft beer list (local and national) and good specials as well as standard menu. My... read more

Really enjoyed dinner at the Red Dove, the menu isn't extensive however it has a good mix of choices. The Pumpkin Russian cocktail was yummy. Our waitress was excellent, very attentive, brought over the bottle of rose that I liked so I could take a picture of it and offered to re-do my salad because it had onions on it... More

We visited this restaurant for the second time on vacation. The second time around, the food was good, but not as great as we remembered. It seemed that there were an a lot of Asian dishes, which didn't make sense in a Gastropup. The buffalo shrimp were disappointing, not worth the price. The wings, which they are known for, were...

We decided to stop Saturday night with a group of 7. Arrived at 5:30pm no wait time and no reservation. We ordered drinks and everyone ordered something different. Oyster appetizer was delish, I ordered flank steak over a specialty salad with goat cheese, my husband ordered another steak dish. We had an array of dinners but none the same at... More

This restaurant offers a nice departure from the usual pub grub found around tow. Its small but classy...great for hipsters seeking a slightly funky menu. Burger lovers should go to any one of the many pubs in the area. Service is good and prices are what you might expect in accordance with a special menu.

Feels like a New York city restaurant with out the New York city prices. Food is so good . Been here twice and enjoyed it both times. Great menu and great beer selection. Can't wait to come back again.

The menu here is eclectic, and changes seasonally, prepared with local ingredients. The service is not quick, but with the quality of custom prepared meals, one doesn't expect speed. A good selection of local beers and wines, and custom cocktails made, again, with local ingredients. The place is small and can be crowded and noisy, but the food is worth... More

This small restaurant in the heart of Geneva has consistently well prepared novel food in an intimate atmosphere. Specials like fresh oysters, grilled sardines and other yummy but unexpected treats are frequent. A good bar and wine cellar complement the food.
