“Great Atmosphere, Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Dined there last weekend on their outside patio. Really nice place, and the staff was extremely friendly. The food was excellent. They had outdoor music - jazz. All around a great value.

“Wonderful lunch restaurant-can get better quality and value for dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

This is one of my favorite venues for lunch in Geneva. Lovely patio; pretty porch, and warm cozy dining room. I have always found the staff excellent. Lunch offers many wonderful options: quiche of the day, fantastic crab cakes, very nice Waldorf chicken salad. Lobster bisque is to die for ( but it is so rich, you can hardly eat anything else!) several nice desserts too. We have actually held a small company Christmas dinner party here a year ago- the food was great at that time. Recently had dinner there though, and was very disappointed with the seafood risotto. Very lackluster (and gummy!!!!!) the scallops risotto at Houlihans (Geneva commons, and a chain restaurant, is better) My husband did have the special-; wild caught walleye with cornbread polenta and veggies. It was excellent. However, I was shocked how much their dinner prices have gone up. Most everything was $20-$28- no salad included. And another note: how can you serve tomatoes in a caprese salad that are as hard as fast-pitch softballs????? Awful!!!! Mixed drinks were 1/2 priced but our bill still ran $100- no appetizers, sides or dessert.

“Avoid at all costs”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

We arrived at the restaurant and that was the only good part of this experience. We were sat in the bar area, but literally 2 feet from the restroom door. We waited over 20 minutes to be greeted or to place a drink order. Basic beer they were out of and yet we were at the facility at 8 pm. Clearly, the bar manager did not order for the weekend properly. Now, comes the worse part. While in the bar area and now waiting and being ignored to place a food order a couple steps to the bar about 2 feet behind us to order drinks. Fine or so we thought. They proceeded to kiss, fondle, grope, et cetera right by us several, several times. The bartender and house manager saw this more than once and even noticed me looking at them to please intervene. Nothing was done. Nothing. Luckily, we did not have our children with us. My wife and I were appalled by the couple clearing needing a prophylactic and even more by the complete lack of response by management. We were offended and several other patrons around us in the bar. The final straw was when we finally got a bill ( after I went to the bar to finally get one side no one would come to the table) and the bar tender either intentionally or make not miscounted the returning change. It was easy. A $14.00 bill for 2 drinks and only 4 dollars returned. We raised the issue with the manager to let them at least know and left the non-returned money as a tip and fled. An awful experience and we will never return. Avoid or at least bring hand sanitizer and a bull horn. You WILL need them.

“Perfect for afternoon lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

The wonderful, lovely home has lent itself well to a restaurant. Try seating on the porch. It is charming The lobster bisque was one of the best I have had and the salad was crisp with lots of salmon on top
