New owners/management has ruined this place! Menu has changed, prices are up and quality is down. The bar used to be a great add to the restaurant now I can't even get served. Poor management at the hostess station. This used to be a fun place to take out of town friends but I will not be back!

Prices are much higher than the old restaurant The Grandview. Food was much better at the Grandview and the prices in line. The Geneva Inn is so high priced for what you get I will not be back. Use to love to stop there on business at least 10 times a month and their signature soup is gone what a... More

This place was popular 15 years ago. Not much has changed over the years including the decor and menu. It feels really dated with its 1990's interior "supper club" feel. The last time we dined here, the service was really not up to snuff, which is why we will never go back. We were treated very disrepectfully by our server... More

We were impressed with the updated look and feel of the restaurant, and the hotel, in general, is very boutique and welcoming. We loved the attention to detail and the wonderful treatment we received from the host, bartender and serving staff. We will definitely come again now that the Inn has been renovated!

My wife and had dinner at the Geneva Inn while on vacation in the Lake Geneva area. The hotel and resort overlook the lake. The wait staff are very attentive and well trained. They are knowledgeable of the food preparation and very friendly. The food was delicious. I had the Geneva Inn salad and my wife had a Caesar salad.... More

This use to be a great place - wonderful food, grest views, elegant ambiance. It's all there except the food. Everything was lukewarm and uninspired. Small, poor quality mussels in a modest amount of broth, cold mashed potatoes, soggy chicken, a 3-4 ounce halibut portion with a miserly side. The meal was sad.

The view of the lake and interior of restaurant is exceptional! Sunday lunch was average at best . One order under cooked and one order over cooked. It is hard to mess up eggs and at their prices I expect quality. Hash was pretty plain and came with no bread. Out of 5 of us no one would come back... More

The restaurant at The Geneva Inn is not what it used to be! Things have certainly changed in the dining room since the renovation, and not for the better. While the remodel of the facility is lovely, the food we were served today for Thanksgiving was sub-par quality and very bland preparation. My family has eaten at this restaurant many... More

The temperature today was 72 degrees and it was sunny (on November 17th), so my wife and I drove the convertible up to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin for lunch. The car will be put away for the winter this weekend, so today was a "final hurrah" to nice weather. We decided we wanted a place with a view. After checking Trip... More
