We have been to Ports many times and always find it a good choice. The menu is seasonal and reflects regional fresh cuisine. Make a reservation because they are usually booked and can be hard to get into.

Nice atmoshere and excellent food. A little pricey, but well worth it for a special occasion. A good wine list as well.

We were glad we read previous TripAdvisor reviews and we made a reservation. We went on a Tuesday night and we definitely needed a reservation because the place was busy so we knew the food must be very good. I had duck breast with a season smash cauliflower. The duck was very tender and the whole dish was yummy. My... More

The food is delicious, I have not had a bad meal. You definitely want to have a reservation. The tables in the older part of the restaurant are a little quieter.

Excellent dinner! I want to go back already! They have specials every evening and I highly recommend ordering of the special menu. Our waitress made our visit and was very personable and knowledgable. I wish I could remember the senoritas name!

Ports Cafe was a very busy place for a cold, rainy weekend in October. We didn’t have a reservation, so we waited for about 20 minutes and ended up sitting to eat at the bar near the hostess stand. I had the chicken and shrimp in the Thai peanut sauce and it was fantastic. I would highly recommend it.

We have been to Ports many times and never been disappointed. They have a great seasonal menu and friendly service. Although I miss the old, smaller Ports, it is still worth a stop.

We celebrated my wife's birthday at Port's Cafe, a short drive south of Geneva, NY. Having not visited in numerous years, we were excited to experience their expanded menu and the comfortable ambiance suggested by other friends. We had a bit of trouble finding an entree for the Mrs., who's both gluten and dairy intolerant. It seemed everything was prepared... More
