this was a happy surprise, which we were sorry to discover only on our 3rd and final night in town. we understand from locals that the Wildflower had gone through ups and downs recently. it was definitely UP on our visit! delicious food, using wonderful local ingredients, and very pleasant, fun, friendly service. I'd recommend the local beers over local... More

My wife and I went for a couple of nights to the finger lakes and we started our excursion here. The food was phenomenal and I am picky. We did a beer trail tour and frankly, this beer was the best that we had even though it wasn't on our tour. I highly recommend this place if you're in the... More

Many options on menu. Should be able to satisfy everyone in your party. We started with the corn fritters (with a great sweet pepper dipping sauce), shared a pizza and salad and had more than enough. Service was good, not rushed and very polite. Many craft beer choices, all well described on the menu.

On my visit it was the only restaurant on "the strip" without a wait but it was my destination to begin with. The decor was perfectly casual and met my expectations. The service was exceptionally great which is usually where I'm most disappointed. The selection of their craft beer was broad and well documented, as well as, an assortment of... More

I picked this cafe based on other reviewers. The cafe had a great menu, with a good variety. We shared the crab dip as our app. Nice and creamy. They served a nice grainy bread with a sweet butter before our app and that was nice. I had the chicken, cheddar and Apple sandwich, nice combination. A bit disappointed that... More

All foods are fresh and made in-house. Nice dinner menu--lots of choices. Ample servings. French fried onions were great--skinny strings. Great craft beer selection. Stopped back for house made desserts one night--yummy. Short walk to Harbor Hotel

Tasty food and terrific service. Ellen and Kayla are two people that help make a restaurant successful. A great " human calling card" to want you to return again and again.

We went to NY Finger Lakes wine country last week, and ate at the Wildflower Cafe one evening. We received a warm greeting, and fast friendly service....but not rushed. Don't miss the corn fritters with pepper jelly. I had a goat cheese, basil, bacon, cartelized onion pizza with crust made in house....so good! Hubby had four cheese garlic pizza, which... More
