We tried to eat here. Heard the food was really good and a local hang. Walked in to a stuffy hot dining room. It smelled really bad. There were only older people in the dining room. As we left the waitress came after us and asked why are you leaving? We said it is very hot and stuffy in here... More

Thank you for your post. Apparently I arrived that night a moment after you left. The server was very concerned about it. It was very stuffy in the dining room that evening. The owner had turned the boilers on earlier in the week when it was much colder. That Tuesday it was unexpectedly warm. Crazy October weather. It was addressed... More

You could just visit The Montage at the Glen Motor Court just for the view. Overlooking the shores of Seneca Lake, many tables are available by the picture windows. But the food! Eggplant rollotini! Shrimp barbecue appetizer! People rave about the calamari appetizer. I haven't been disappointed.

Situated on the Senaka lake it has a beautiful view on the lake. The food is of high quality. It offers a variety of cocktails and wines and first class Italian dishes (not too much variety ). Prince is reasonably. I strongly recommend this place.

Hello and thank you for your review. We are very glad you enjoyed our Chicken Lorenzo, it's one of our Chef's personal favorites. I double checked our Tripadvisor information and couldn't find were it showed us as being closed but thank you for bringing it to your attention. We are a seasonal business and will be closed after October 17th.... More

The views at this restaurant were just absolutely spectacular! You could see almost the entire span of Seneca Lake while enjoying an excellent Italian style meal with classic tunes playing in the background. Great for families and couples!

The view is really really great. Call ahead for a window seat! We had fried raviolis as an appetizer which were really good. I had spaghetti and meatballs and I was pleased with that. The service was great! It wasn't exactly the most AMAZING food, but it was really good and the view was really why we went. I would... More

The views outside the window is amazing to the lake. The whole room is huge and for me it was quite characterless. The decor and the tables resemble the 60s, or the race age, as everything is around racing in the decoration. The food was salty for my taste, it was average Italian food, nothing fancy, really reasonably priced. The... More

Had dinner at the restaurant. It was the Monday after the NASCAR race. The food was fine (particularly the french onion soup). But, what was truly amazing was the view of Lake Seneca. The place was also quite a time capsule, preserved I am sure as it was during the fifties and sixties, when it was frequented in October each... More
