“Good food, friendly service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Overall I think this is a nice restaurant. We ate there the day after July 4th and it was a little busy, but we got in without a reservation placed ahead of time.
The staff was friendly.
The meal took quite a while to arrive. I ordered a sauteed half chicken and it took at least 45 minutes. I was told they didn't think it was cooked enough so they cooked it longer or made another one - I'm not quite sure which. I'm very patient and we were in no rush, so no problem.
The chicken was tasty, though there was more sauce/gravy on the plate than necessary and took over the flavor of the garlic potatoes.
The peanut butter pie-like dessert was tasty.
Overall very good. Everyone liked their meal. For 3 people without alcohol but with dessert and not ordering the most expensive entrees, it was about $85.

“Great restaurant to celebrate great things”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

This mine and my husbands go to place when we want to celebrate whatever life has given to us. The wood fire pizzas are amazing and the crab farfalle is sooo good with chucks of real crab! The bread and dipping oils are a nice to touch to just bread butter.

“Good.....But Not Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Visited on a Thursday night with reservation. Atmosphere is very nice, we were greeted and seated promptly and our waitress arrived at once to take our drink orders. The bar scene was non existent on this night which was a concern after reading other TA reviews. We came for their fire wood pizzas. Prior to the pizzas we had ($6) 1/2 portions of salads which were fresh and crisp. I ordered a Margarita pizza. The crust was a little thick for my liking but it had nice flavors. My sister ordered the Vegetarian pizza which was soggy because of the moisture being released from the chopped veggies while it cooked, flavor was just okay. Their 12" Pizzas run $15 to $23. A glass of wine, salads and pizza for two will cost you $60 + tip.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

I love the casual atmosphere and amazing service. By far, they have the best steak in Geneva! I also love that many dishes can be substituted for a gluten free option including dinner rolls, pasta and pizza. We have been to Halsey's many times and can't wait to go back again!
