Great Food and a really great staff!

Being vegetarian makes road food kinda tricky. The Montage has a italian cheese and red pepper grilled sandwich to go back for. The flour less chocolate cake is a reason to back again and again! The waitress was fabulous, I wish I would have gotten her name, sorry. We were riding our bicycles... read more

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!

This property - which has undergone a series of reincarnations over many years, has been in the hands of the same family since 1895. It currently houses the restaurant and the Glen Motor Inn. A personal connection to the Grand Prix races is documented by memorabilia in the restaurant lobby. The glassed-in rear of the restaurant provides a panoramic view... More

We've lived in the area all our lives but had never eaten here. We decided to try it & were not disappointed. The minute we walked in we were warmly greeted & given a window seat. The view of Seneca Lake in the evening is not to be missed. Our waitress couldn't have been nicer. She answered all our questions... More

Our B&B owner recommended Montage Grill and we are not, Went around 5 and were able to get a window seat, Wonderful food. Great service. AMAZING VIEW! Go and enjoy. Even if you don't get a window seat, the view is still amazing, i don't think there' is a bad seat in house.

My wife and I went there for our anniversary. The place is very charming, we liked the Italian family history dating back to the 1800's. The views of the lake are beautiful. The food was good and the portions were large. The service was great.

After reading the good reviews, we headed over to Montage's for a quality dinner. To be honest, upon arrival, we were a bit apprehensive as the restaurant is located in a motel of the side of a main road. However, once we were seated, that all disappeared. Although plainly decorated, the scenic view was beautiful, the service friendly and attentive,... More
