We visited Red Dove at the recommendation of our Air BnB host and were not disappointed! We decided to do a few smaller plates together and split. We enjoyed each and everyone, especially the buffalo chick peas and the Korean Chicken Wings!

What else would you want from a pub? Good food, friendly service, a few jokes, rock music and laughter. A wonderful selection of beers on tap and a nice variety of wines. High end it's not....it's a freaking pub people!! Great for what it is.

What a great young vibe in this small bar/restaurant. There is an extensive local wine list and creative cocktails. In addition, the menu includes local fare with a staff to explain exactly what is being offered and what wines pair well.

The food here is excellent and the service was nice and proficient. I had a salad and the duck wings, the prices of the entrees are a little high for the locals or college students but a lot of their business seems to come from the wine tours. If you have the penny more to spend then some of the... More

Small plates are such a fun way to try lots of things. If you need an appetizer or you are just sampling with small plates, the Shrimp Pil Pil is so amazing!!

Decided to try the Red Dove based on some local suggestions and previous reviews on this site. It's A really nice space and has an interesting menu. We had a nice burger with the highly recommended fries and the Gyro ( ground beef and lamb pita). The fries weren't as good as advertised. Needed to be hotter and crisper. The... More

Immediately seated on a Friday night, it gets busy quickly. No reservations so you might have to wait at the bar if you can find a seat. Loved the fried chick peas appetizer. Good wait staff, interesting collection of bar food and some locavore specialties.

Reunion with my son and his gf 4/2/16 in Geneva, NY. We met at the Red Dove and had the best time! Korean buffalo wings as our appetizer were to die for. Huge and full of flavorful spices. Thai stir fry with shrimp a hit, too. Specialty drinks were yummy and for dessert, sort of a key lime flavored cheesecake... More
