We ate here due to the good reviews and the concept of locally sourced ingredients. Even though we were there in the off season there was a wait so we checked out their bakery next door. Both of our meals were good, but neither was very hot - like they had been sitting before being brought to the table. My... More

This quaint little restaurant is often overlooked because it is not on main street. It is just a few blocks off. Next door is the Simple Bakery as well. The food selection is very fresh and amazing. I live a few blocks away and eat here often. It is not a place where you will find a typical greasy diner... More

I have been to Simple many times, and every meal I have eaten there has been of quality. Simple's philosophy is to source ingredients as locally as possible and I appreciate that. The restaurant itself is very open and light-filled, and the decor clean and unfussy. The food is nicely presented and portions are on the generous side. Great tea,... More

I use to be a fan. Lately it seems like they aren't caring as much about the quality of the food. Today proved it.I ordered a mushroom omelet. It smelled like manure. I'm not sure if the mushrooms were not washed or what. My husband had pancakes and sausage. I should've played it safe too. left there sick to my... More

Simple was my favorite restaurant in Lake Geneva. As the name implies, their food is simple, authentic and clean. I started off with a cup of the best cream of mushroom soup I've had in a long time. It was creamy with a balanced mushroom flavor and was served with a home baked roll from the bakery next door. I... More

I enjoyed lunch at Simple recently with an aunt that I had not seen in a while. Since we both had the week off for Spring Break, we decided to meet at Simple for lunch. I always enjoy eating at Simple because of the simple menu, fresh food, friendly service, and cleanliness. This time did not disappoint! We decided to... More

Recently visited this restaurant with a colleague for business meeting. So, off the bat this is not a restaurant for business meetings; little too loud. Having said that, if you are visiting Lake Geneva and looking for something filling, healthy and that caters to vegetarians and 'meatarians' alike, this is your place-to-be-at. We were promptly seated and attended on. Even... More

Unique food and an artistry atmosphere. Simple potatoes are amazing. Gluten free options on the menu. Great service. You have to go to the bakery next door and get some yummy bread and bakery.

We were looking for a good place to enjoy lunch while in Geneva, and I'm SO glad the hotel recommended Simple. The decor is so cute - I love the color scheme! I am a very picky eater when it comes to dining out - I like fresh, real food. Simple seems like they value using good ingredients, and nothing... More
