If you have not been to the Montage Italian Grill, you're missing one of the best restaurants in Watkins Glen. Besides a stellar veal parmesan, the grilled salmon was outstanding. I brought family visiting from Massachusetts, and not only did they rave about the food, the breathtaking view just made the experience better. Exceptional.

Went into the restaurant about 5:30 and was seated at a table by the window with a wonderful view of the lake. Ordered a beer before dinner and relaxed and just looked out the window. Ordered the shrimp scampi. Had a wonderful prepared salad with italian bread which was hot and fresh. The scampi had huge shrimp and wonderfully flavored... More

A nice menu, the calamari is exceptionally nice, this restaurant is light, cheerful and has one of the best views over Seneca Lake. Prices are very reasonable

Conveniently located (as we stayed at the motel) with an excellent view. The food was above average, being well cooked, well seasoned and reasonably priced. Worth a visit if you are looking for lunch or dinner in the area!

We have a B&B in Watkins Glen and send all our guests to Montage--along with others in the area. But the advantage with Montage is the great view of Seneca Lake and because it is just a bit out of town--they are not overly swamped like others. Also because of this, it has a quieter atmosphere in which you can... More

We had a late lunch and sorta skipped dinner. Since we were staying at the Glen Motor Inn, we went into the lounge area looking for bar munchies. We ordered off the resturant menu shrimp creole and spinach/artichoke dip which we enjoyed but really loved the fried ravioli.

First off, this is the best view on Seneca. We got a table right by the very large windows, which was great. Our service was good, and the food very good. The shrimp scampi was just enough to leave me satisfied but not stuffed. Just what I was looking for. My husband had a very rich dinner, the cannelloni was... More

We dined there with friends last year and, aside from the view, we did not care for the place. Our friends like the pasta dishes and frequent the place often so we agreed to try it again, as we had been there years ago when they participated in the Dine-a-Mate Entertainment Book (BOGO). It was OK back then, considering the... More

Thank you for your post. I am sorry you were unhappy with your meal. We do have a brand new menu this season, much different from last year. I am surprised you did not care for the scallop dish as it was one of our most popular dishes and we received many compliments on it. We do use a universal... More

Wow.. nothing was bad about this experience. I had the pasta primavera and the flavor was out of this world. My partner had the Chicken Alfredo and Loved it! Even the salad dressing was out of this world....Enjoy!

Christina, Was it the toasted walnut and gorgonzola vinaigrette you had? That is one of our exclusive dressings we make from scratch. Thank you so much for your compliments. I appreciate you posting. Hopefully, you will get to return soon. Warm regards, Nancy Franzese More
