I asked Gary at the Trimmer House B&B to suggest a nice restaurant for our 50th wedding anniversary. Without hesitation, he recommended Post's Cafe. Dinner was delicious, our waitress was terrific, the noise level was off the scale.

We went to Ports Cafe on the night of our 10 year anniversary based on all the high reviews. Unfortunately we were disappointed as it did not appear that the waitress was in a good mood and the food preparation was extremely slow which was surprising since the restaurant was not full. The ravioli appetizer was delicious ...after a 30... More

We had dinner at Ports and had great food and great service. The menu was extensive, including 20+ specials, all of which read to us by the waitress and well as printed on a separate menu sheet (reading all of them was not necessary and was done so fast that they could not be well understood). The quality of the... More

A group of nine (three couples, three kids) dined here prior to a 1/2 ironman race. We chose an early seating time so we could get a good night's sleep before the big race. Our table was ready for us on time and the waitress was friendly and new the menu well. They offer a lot of seasonal items so... More

Good decor, attentive service, and extensive menu that offers city quality food in the rural escape of the finger lakes. We were impressed overall and had trouble choosing between menu items. Good problems to have.

The atmosphere of this little hidden gem was surprisingly relaxed and comfortable. The service was excellent and the food was even better, from the wonderful appetizers to delicious main courses, not to mention their impressive wine list! If ever in Geneva NY set aside enough time to enjoy a meal at this exceptional restaurant! It's a little pricey, but well... More

Great food with a really diverse menu options such as Tandoori Chicken, Seafood, Steaks and Thai. Try the Baked Brie and the Calamari for appetizers. The inside is nicer than you might expect from the exterior. It was a bit pricy but well worth it. We sat right away with a party of 7, but it took us 2.5 hours... More

Our server, Abbie, was a doll! Great personality and exceptional service. The food was stellar, especially the ricotta gnocchi! If you are looking for good food and a great atmosphere, this is your place! Thanks, Ports!!
