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

At the heart of the Watkins Glen experience is the deep rooted Italian Culture. Without it there would be no wine industry in the Finger Lakes. It gets no better than the food at the Montage. The view is outstanding and the history that goes along with the dining experience is 3 generations strong. Check it out.

During our stay at Glen Motor Inn, we had dinner twice at Montage. Our first dinner took over 2 hours!! We didn't get waited on for over 30 minutes. We didn't get any bread. It took an hour before any of the food arrived. Our second dinner (we went back reluctantly) was much better. We ordered after about 5 minutes.... More

What a terrific view of the lake! The food was very good, but thought it was a bit pricey. Would go back, however.

We were there to help celebrate a Birthday---the Butternut Squash Soup was out of this world. My entrée was a seafood medley wrapped in a fresh baked pastry puff with a Sherry Crème glace. It was outstanding...My Date (And Birthday Boy) was a little disappointed by his choice-he ordered Medium Prime Rib and got VERY Well Done instead-we notified the... More

We ate here because we were staying at the Glen Motor Inn. Do not pass this place up. My salmon was amazing. My husband's chicken was top notch. Great food, service, and view!
