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 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

We enjoyed a very relaxed lunch with views of Seneca Lake and active boating across the lake; binoculars were even available to better enjoy the views. Our tasty dishes (salad, classic Italian spaghetti and meatballs, turkey sandwich, broccoli soup, topped off with an excellent berry Gelato) were served in timely fashion, and the local customers were friendly. We shall return!

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.
