Food was good, not great, but we enjoyed it.

The service was excellent! We were a party of 12 and our servers were courteous, efficient, and got everything right the first time. Water glasses were always filled, coffee always hot. My fish was excellent and food portions were large. Other in my party found their meals average which is why I... read more

Excellent dinner. Family gathering and we were treated so well. Efficient & friendly service. Food was fantastic & huge portions. Nice salad bar w/ variety would definitely go back & highly recommend. Great house wine! Great prices.

We were a party of six, arriving without reservations, on a Friday evening. After a 5 minute wait, we were seated promptly. Apparently they have Prime Rib only on Friday & Saturday nights. The Filet special was sold out when we arrived. The locals are on to something, because the place was packed. The only disappointing thing for me, was... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel and saw an advertisement for this restaurant. It indicated that they had great prime rib (which is my favorite) so I called for a reservation and was accommodated within 30 minutes of my call. The place doesn't look "all that." But don't let looks discourage you--the food is delicious. We ordered calamari for... More

Emile's has wonderful and a salad bar. Nice selection of many types of food. The waitresses are very efficient and the wait time for food is small. The restaurant also has a full bar.

Food was great, large portions. Excellent service. We were camping at Sampson State park and decided to go into town and have dinner. It was suggested to try Emile's which we did. The food was really good and would go back.

We started coming to Emile's one day, when we are traveling around the Finger Lakes and we looking for a dinner place. Walked in and we fell in love. Great family feel. Lovely salad bar. Wonderful prime rib dinner, generous cut! Since that visit we have returned every year at least once. Some years, we have decided to take the... More

Emile's is tucked away, but a must find for people traveling through the Finger Lakes Region. Friendly service from a long-time family owned business is top notch. The food is great - probably the best prime rib I've had anywhere. Perfectly seasoned and cooked. Bar has cracker barrel wine cheese and crackers - you don't see this anywhere else! Good... More

A very varied menu, nice atmosphere, friendly service. I got Salmon and it was very good. The salad bar was good - but there were not very many choices. I would definitely come back here.

Very clean and friendly restaurant, food is always excellent and the salad bar is great. Lots of fresh items to choose from on the salad bar, and have never had a bad meal or dessert. Do not leave without trying a dessert!
