“Fabulous Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2008

We had a wonderful dinner at the Geneva Inn recently. They started us out with 3 homemade breads and a delicious sun dried tomato spread. Next we had a salad with a warm ham dressing. It was fabulous. My main course was mahi mahi (and I am not a fish eater but it sounded so interesting). The fish was served over sweet potatos (similar to hash brown pancakes) accompanied by a sweet chutney and fried plantains. The combination was wonderful. My husband had lamb chops which were also very good. For dessert I had banana bread bread pudding. Good but very filiing.

The service was excellent and we had a table overlooking the lake. The menu is a little pricey but definitely worth it. Five stars!!

“Excellent food + view + service ---> however, a bit $$$$”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2008

We had friends who were staying at the Geneva Inn so we decided to give the associated restaurant, The Grandview, a try for dinner. We are glad we did!

Excellent wait staff and great views - or should I say, "Grand View" - of the lake. The tables right next the the window are usually requested first, so get your reservation in early; however, all the tables have some view of the lake (even the ones next to the wall have a mirror facing the table so you at least get a reflection of the lake!) Nice open feeling to whole restaurant.

My husband had the medallions of beef w/garlic mashed potatoes ($34) & roasted veggies - he loved it. I had the "Yuppie Farms" organic free range chicken ($26) - also excellent. (Yuppie Farms is a WI local organic farm they buy from). I loved it; however, understand that the chicken has less fat on it than on a traditional hormone fed, caged chicken - so may be different than what you are used to.

The menu was varied - including venison, fish dishes, pasta, plus great appetizers and the most incredible veggie tomato-based soup (not loaded with salt - seasoned with herbs). You can tell that the chef does an excellent job in planning his menus with a variety of items, so that everyone can pick their favorite dish.

Almost gave it 5 star rating, but the prices are a bit high for the quantity of food offered (and drinks fairly $), but given all the positives and quality of the dishes - it is a "must dine" at restaurant when in Lake Geneva!

“Good food, good service and great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2007

I am surprised not more people have commented on this restaurant.

Thanks to the only review posted here (prior to the one I am writing now), I had no idea about this wonderful restaurant!

My husband and I have been to Lake Geneva many times and have tried different restaurants (Gilberts, Grand Geneva's Chophouse and Brissago, Cafe Calamari in Williams Bay among others), and I will have to say that the restaurant at the Geneva Inn is up there with some of the better restaurants in this area.

The only disappointment I had (minor really) was that we weren't seated right by the window although we did make the reservation only a couple of days prior to our visit during the summer months. I also think that they tend to cater to their hotel guests who ask for better seating which of course is understandable.

Overall, for the price we spent - about $150 including tip and taxes, we each had a salad, filet for me and fish for my husband and 1 dessert and a bottle of wine, the overall experience was really nice. We will definitely go back!

Hope this helps.

“Awesome Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2007

Amazing food, amazing service, and beautiful views!!! Make sure you don't miss this treat while you are in Lake Geneva. Be sure to make a reservation as they fill up quickly, especially on weekend during the peak season.
