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

First, unless you are walking or sharing, do not order the 1/2 carafe of wine. This is a lot more than 2 glasses (my usual measure). The hangar steak special with the fries was fabulous. Highly recommended.

Passed through on my way to Gill Mass. This place is over the top with small plates, oysters and very interesting dishes. You can tell the chef is indeed a chef and is very proud of his/her craft. Oh and more tap beers and tap wine than you can shake a stick at. Don't miss it!!!
