Everything here was outstanding. We had a look at an extensive menu only to have another specials menu come out with numerous other tasty choices. Needless to say we needed more time to decide. Service was stellar. Atmosphere was a little loud for my liking but outweighed by the incredible food and attentive servers.

I've been here 3 times now, and each time the food is absolutely incredible, but the wait time leaves much to be desired.

We ate at Ports last night based on reviews seen on trip advisor and from some of the locals. They had an extremely extensive list of specials that all sounded absolutely fabulous. I had the flank steak marinated in soy and ginger and it was cooked to perfection. The cream of portobello soup was probably the best soup we've ever... More

Enroute to Niagara Falls, my wife and I stayed in Geneva, NY at the Bellhurst Castle. Not wanting to eat at our hotel, we discovered the Ports Cafe This restaurant is a wonderful road stop. It is not attractive from the road, but very chic and well appointed inside. We were seated with a nice view of Seneca Lake. Our... More

This restaurant was recommended a few times during our vacation so we knew we had to stop in - and we were not disappointed. We started our evening by sitting outside and enjoying the view of Lake Geneva but we moved inside when the weather turned a bit cooler - one side of the restaurant was very raucous so we... More

While in Geneva, NY, read the TA reviews for this wonderful restaurant. Husband and I decided to eat here and what a great choice it was. Asked for a table overlooking the water, which was across the street. We did get a table by the window but in order to see the water we had to look beyond all the... More

After visiting a winery we asked for a dinner recommendation and were told to go to Ports Cafe. We were glad we did. They have a big "specials" list and while it was hard to choose we ordered the Lamb Shank that was served on a bed of maple polenta as well as Duck Meatloaf which was duck & cornbread... More

Since my sister had visited this restaurant a year ago with some other friends while visiting the Finger Lakes she felt we would also enjoy it. She made reservation several weeks in advance and we were seated promptly after being greeted. Our server was friendly and informative and did not rush us to take our orders. Despite being a week...

The remodel job is a good move. More room, seems more clean. When we came in the door at 5:30, we went to the podium and a kid said: “two for dinner?” I said we have reservations and he looked at me as if I came from Mars. He just stared at me. He could have said: “What’s the name... More
