Our group of five mature adults from the UK enjoyed a wonderful Italian meal here in late September. I had the 'special' and it was just that. Reasonably priced and with excellent service. I had mentioned it was my birthday and they even conjured up a dessert with a candle in it for me! Highly recommended.

We opted for this eatery because we were staying just across the road.....Be advised that this restaurant is a little ways outside of town and attached to a local motel.......The service was excellent and the food tasty....Not a large menu but we all enjoyed our meals.....

Our service was great and the view--wonderful. Our dinners were good, but not outstanding. We'll likely not go back.

By far the best resturant of our trip. Excelent food, staff and views. The best "old fashion" I have had to date. Great menu.

6 of us had dinner at Montage. We all liked our food and the wait staff were all very friendly. What is really a big seller for this place is the view. You get some of the best views of the lake. The only downside is that you also get views of the seedy looking motel & pool below. But... More

Seneca lake is simply one of the most beautiful lakes anywhere and no one has a better view than the Montage. The food was very good, service a bit slow, but it didn't matter as we were enjoying the ambiance. For anyone visiting Watkins, this is a must visit. The pasta sauce was excellent, so no complaints there. Definitely go... More

I had balsamic glazed salmon and my husband had the beef and peppers and both were wonderful. Everyone in the party had great food. Some reviews stated the restaurant was... More

The food was ok. Not great . I ordered the Pasta Giordini (sp?) . A bit bland. Service was very good . The kids loved the spaghetti.

We are sorry to know that you didn't enjoy your Pasta Giardino. It is ment to be a lighter entree of sauteed vegetables over pasta. We leave the seasoning to just the garlic, basil, and white wine. Thank you for posting. Kind Regards, Nancy More

On a Sunday evening I stopped in to have dinner. I knew nothing of Montage Italian Grill, but I didn't feel like driving into Watkins Glen. I was so glad I stopped. The Staff is cordial and friendly, the view is beautiful, not a bad seat in the house. It sits above Seneca Lake. And the Food .........Fantastic. As you... More
