The review dated August 19, 2015 made me laugh out loud. I totally concur with that reviewer. Emile's is a throwback that serves terrific Italian food. My husband and I dined here with another couple earlier in the month. We plan to go back next summer when we return to the area for another few days of wine touring. My... More

This place is a throwback to fine dining steakhouses of the 60's and 70's. Senior crowd, dated décor, loud gentlemen at the bar flirting with the ladies after rounds of golf. Loved it! Reminded me of places my folks used to take me to in the 70's. We had the special of the night, the lasagna. Apparently we got the... More

If you love authentic Italian food, you have to try Emile's. They also provide steak for those who prefer a more American cuisine. They don't have lasagna on their menu, but sometimes have it for a "special". I suggest you get it. It is THE BEST I have ever had!

We wanted to go out and enjoy a quiet evening out. We sat at the bar and waited for our table. We enjoyed a nice drink and then our name was called. We got to our table and were told that they were out of the prime rib. This was at approximately 8pm. We said ok...no problem. My husband and... More

I had the salad bar-- very good-- and my husband had soup which he said was excellent. We ordered the top sirloin with garlic and bleu cheese. Holy cow. It was amazing. I've never tasted anything so good. My steak had some gristle but there was definitely more edible meat than the 12 oz advertised. In fact we each took... More

Local restaurant in Geneva/Waterloo area of NY Fingerlakes region. Italian restaurant with great options and reasonable prices. The locales know how good it is because it is always crowded. Will plan to revisit this restaurant the next time we are in the area.

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 titled my review the way I did. The... More

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
