The second day I had banana bread pancakes, bacon, home fries, fruit with yogurt, and coffee. Both breakfast were delicious, and... read more

We were on our way to Chautauqua NY and decided to eat dinner in Geneva. Quick web search on Trip Advisor led us to Crosswinds. It was a beautiful Thursday evening and they have a really nice patio overlooking Lake Erie. It was about 7:30 pm. They had stopped serving food outside--On a beautiful nice you;re closing your patio at... More

Dear Bob, I’m terribly sorry that you were confused when you came. The outdoor patios are open seven days a week and the volume of people that visit is tremendous, so we do stop taking food orders for the lower patios at 5:30 on Mondays and Tuesdays, 7:30 on Wednesday and Thursday evenings and then 8:30 on Friday-Sundays at this...

Great fine dining in Northeast Ohio! Beautiful restraraunt and inn location and beautiful and clean grounds and establishment. The farm to table concept is great and the taste and freshness of the food is overwhelmingly outstanding!

We did not eat at the Crosswinds Grille, but did eat out on the winery deck, which I believe is the same kitchen. It is magnificent!!!!! My sisters and I loved eating there right on the Lake. You can get the wine tasting, but we just got a bottle each time. Food was wonderful: sandwiches, salads and cheese boards. We... More

Dear Pat, You are correct, it is the same kitchen!!

If you want to eat in the indoor restaurant, make sure you get reservations. We ate down on the patio area (first come first serve), and had sandwiches and pizza. Great view of the lake while dining. Our server was less than attentive, I had to go up and ask at the bar for silverware and napkins a few minutes... More

What we liked about our visit was our friendly server, followed by a nice view, and some good bread with a balsamic reduction dipping oil. We picked this restaurant because we wanted to support farm-to-table endeavors. Our food was fine, but not nearly in the class we expected at this price range. We should have heeded the advice of a... More

It was breezy and chilly when we visited so we opted to eat inside. The décor is nice but there is not much of a lake view if that is what you are looking for. The food is very good, most of it locally grown. They butcher their own meat as well. Pizzas are normal priced, entrees in the $20-25... More
