Pleasant relaxing atmosphere. Traditional Italian cuisine. Well prepared and tasty. Good size portions allowing us to take some home for Sunday lunch. Waitress was outstanding and made sure we had everything we needed with being obtrusive.

My husband and I were visiting the Watkins Glen area during the 4th of July. We wanted some lunch with a view of Seneca Lake. We got everything that we wanted at the Montage Italian Grill. We had great sandwiches and a wonderful homemade dessert at a very good price. But the best part was the view of the lake.... More

Came in to have a drink at the bar. The place is clean and is throwback to another time. Loved all of the old Formula One pictures in the lobby. It made me think back to being a child. Went downstairs to the bar. Had a few drinks which were very good and got a table over looking the lake.... More

Thank you for your kind review. I was fortunate to grow up during the F1 era and met many of the people that have autographed photos for our walls. It was a very exciting time............especially to think that the whole world was visiting your small inn. We are certainly nostalgic and have many requests to keep it so. We hope... More

It's a family owned place, not too fancy. Good food and service and a great view. Vibe is a trip right back to the 60s. Moderate prices.

Good plentiful food. Friendly staff. Family owned and run - it shows. Most tables are at the windows looking directly out at Seneca Lake. Nice. If you are interested in motor sports this place is part of history. On racing weekend at nearby Watkins Glen International you might be surprised at who's sitting at the next table.

Its a family owned, warm and inviting with very good food and service. Its not fancy but it feels like you've been invited to old friend's for dinner. Views are some of the best of the Finger Lakes. The owners have been a pillar of the village for many years and the vintage photos of famous racers lets you know... More

My family and I came in late on a weekday, were greeted very kindy and genuinely. (Not something we often get with two young children) The service was very personable and great, our waitress was always there when we needed her but didn't make us feel like we were crowded. The salad was fresh and delicious, the entree was amazing... More

We had a great meal tonight at the Montage Grill inside the Glen Motor Inn in Watkins Glen NY. Salad was fresh greens, meal was delicious and hot when placed in front of us. Our waitress was attentive, the view was beautiful Seneca Lake. Well worth the visit. Don't miss it. Serves lunch and dinner. It was great!
