We have dined at the Red Dove Tavern on many occasions when we travel to Geneva, NY. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is pleasant. It is a great place to go for dinner before a show at the Smith Opera House.

Have been going here for many years. The menu is different than most and the small plates are particularly good. The wine selection is extensive with a few even being on tap. This place is usually quite busy with local professors especially liking it. I would recommend for a couple or a group.

Lovely place, excellent service, delicious food! We will be back! The fried calamari was tender and spicy dip a wonderful accompaniment. Falafel was freshly made, tender and tasty. We also had a rice veggie plate that was so wonderful with lovely kick. A surprising great dinner - not what I expected at all. We were pleasantly surprised. Pretty reasonable prices.

Ate at the Dove last week and again...One of the best meals in the area! You just can't go wrong at the Red Dove. The food is fresh, delicious & presented well. The service was exceptional. Didn't care for the "What's up Doc" bloody Mary, but had 2 outstanding cocktails after that. In in the area, just try it!

We had the flank steak sandwich and grilled chicken sandwich. Both came with super thin crispy fries. The fried calamari was good, great dipping sauce.

My husband and I stopped for drinks and lite dinner. Craft cocktails were excellent. Humus appetizer exceptional. We ordered burgers which were not cooked as we requested. We sent them back and they were redone exactly as we ordered. Did not like the black curtain at the entrance. Cocktails were a bit pricey given the location of the restaurant

Good food, good vibe, good prices, good draft beer selection. The only demerit is the physical spaced is dark and rather drab.

My wife and I had dinner at the Red Dove Thursday evening 8/18, came recommended. The food was excellent, though a tad over-priced, even for the Finger Lakes. "Souped up" burger with thin cut fries (again, excellent) for $13, felt like it should have been under $10. Waitress was fine but only two of them, place was busy and they... More
